"The Lovely Bones" was a book I could not put down. I found myself rarely, if at all, thinking about the movie and comparing what I had seen in the previews to what I was reading. I never tried to picture the characters I had seen in the movie trailers as the ones in the book and I was proud of myself that I didn't let that affect my reading. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
With "Dear John" I found myself in a similar situation of not being able to put it down, but my downfall was constantly comparing the book characters with Channing Tatum (and I mean, who wouldn't want to constantly think of him??) and Amanda Seyfried and wanting them to do what I wanted them to do and what I had seen on the previews. I didn't particularly care for the ending, but in talking with others, I do see the flip-side and see why they, in fact, did like it. If nothing else, I have two movies to go see now that I have read the book for, right??
As I said the other day, we were going through an application process to adopt a dog from a rescue group. We had our home visit on Monday and PASSED with flying colors! We got word Monday night that we were approved to become his new parents, but that he'd just been neutered so we needed to wait a couple of days to go get him. Well the time has come and we will be going to get him today!! I can't wait to post pictures and learn all about our new addition, Jasper! Happy Wednesday everyone!
