Week in Review: June 15th (with a mini TFiOS Movie review!)

Inspired by Anna @ Anna Reads.

WHAT I DID:

IMG_4209While I was on blog hiatus I didn’t really do much exciting…except for seeing The Fault in Our Stars and crying my eyes out. As you can see from the picture I wore my “Okay? Okay.” shirt to the movie, accompanied by my Starbucks. My friend told me we should take pictures and caption them “The Fault in Our Starbucks,” hence the picture. I’m not planning on reviewing the movie as I don’t have much to say about it other than that skeptical fans of the book will have nothing to worry about. It was beautiful and just as emotionally exhausting as the book was, bringing enough tears to fill a river. Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, and Laura Dern stole the show. The movie had me crying sooner than the book did. We left the theater puffy-eyed and stuffy-nosed, people in line for the next show staring at us on the way out.

LINKS I LOVED:

  • Leigh @ Little Book Star discussed classics and all of their beautiful editions. Why can’t we just buy them all?!
  • Kelsey @ Verbosity Book Reviews posted ten tips on how to be a more awesome book blogger – definitely worth the read for everyone, not just newbies.
  • Basically EVERYTHING on the Epic Reads blog/YouTube/social media – they’re awesome. But more specifically, they posted about the design process of Claudia Gray’s upcoming release, A Thousand Pieces of You. Hint: All of the covers are gorgeous as is the final one. My inner designer went crazy when I first saw it.

BOOKS I ADDED TO MY SHELVES:

  1. Glad you liked my post! I also enjoyed Epicreads’s post of the trial & error of making Claudia Gray’s book. It was so interesting to see the different versions of the book cover. I haven’t seen TFIOS yet but I heard it was amazing. I’ve read the book but sadly did not love it (I liked it though). I think I’ll wait for it to come out on DVD or Netflix.

  2. I’ve seen so much of Dark Metropolis this past week! Yeah, I REALLY want to read it:) And I always love seeing some TMI around, probably because I AM A SHADOWHUNTER (among other things;))

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
