hey bookie bookie... [2 more books read]

I've been slacking on the reading thing.. I blame my iPhone [i heart iPhone games], Weeds, and my eyes [they've been tired lately]. Also Hit Reply took me awhile to get through, I knew what happened so I just wasn't motivated to finish it... anyways, I need to get cracking if I want to get anywhere near my goal of 100 books this year!

18. Hit Reply
Hit Reply
I'm not going to lie... it was hard finishing Hit Reply this time around... this is the third or fourth time I've read it and I was least interested in it this time... it's not a great literary work - it's just entertaining. Fun. Quirky. Different style. [The entire book is comprised of emails and IMs] Good beach/cruise read if that's what you're looking for! Careful, might tempt you to contact that high school love that got away! :)

 19. The Lovely Bones

The Lovely Bones
This is probably the third time I've read The Lovely Bones... [I'm on a re-reading saving money kick]... it was just as haunting and captivating as the first two times I've read it. I read this book in a single sitting [thank you airtran for your flight delays] and just fell into it. I'm debating if I want to see the movie... I just can't bring myself to watch this movie or My Sister's Keeper... I feel like I'll just be disappointed so what's the point? Anyways, if you're looking for a captivating and dark coming-of-age story The Lovely Bones is a great read!

My mom bought me a book at the airport [thanks moms] so I'm excited to read a fresh book, I'll let you know how it is ASAP!

I was disappointed in My Sisters Keeper movie. The ending was totally different and I felt like it was a little "piecey" and you didn't really get thrown in to each character like in the book.
I haven't read or seen the lovely bones though.

I was disappointed in the Lovely Bones movie. Mostly because it's simply hard to recreate the afterlife in a movie after your brain has already imagined it a certain way, y'know? :)

I loved The Lovely Bones book! So good!

The movie for The Lovely Bones was okay. Just okay. The book is way better.

Good call on not watching the movie for My Sister's Keeper. I was so disappointed with it. They completely changed the ending!! It threw me off. I think I would have liked the movie more if I hadn't read the book...
