Reading is not for the Wimpy....

This Better Be Good... Updated




Its official, one of my favorite books is hitting the big screen! (Plus book three is coming out soon...yet not soon enough) This news is geeking me out! I am super impatient and ecstatic all at the same time! But also trying not to allow myself to get too excited because let’s be honest, most books turned movies don't do the book justice.

I'm only willing to wait if the product is perfect (or at least close to it) But I'm mostly geeking out! 

I'm pretty impressed with the casting and so far it looks good.

I CAN'T WAIT! 
(okay I think that I can breathe normally again)


UPDATE:

Here is the official trailer!

Weekend Read...In Honor

This weekend was absolutely beautiful outside, and a great reason to continue with my list of "must-reads“. In Honor by Jessi Kirby was my choice of reads! It is about a teenage girl getting ready to head off to college when she gets the news that her brother has been killed in Iraq. The premise of the book is about her and her brother's best friend dealing with their grief on a journey to fulfill her brother’s final letter (there is some language as well as minor sexual references). There were many different times that I needed to stop and wipe my eyes from the tears that streemed down my face. It is a fantastic book for young adult readers or readers who enjoy young adult books who have loved books like The Fault in Our Stars or A Second Chance Summer.

IHighly Recommend this book!  

In Honor
