I see that when I go into B&N and laugh because it triggers a Doctor Who recognition alarm in my brain but I know it's Steven king not Steven moffat 😂😂😩


I am reading a dance with dragons (George RR Martin) and next will be a horn of winter when it comes out :-/ .. The last book I actually completed was The Fault in our Stars last week (John Green). Dragons has bored me quite a bit since I started it like a month ago :( I read the other GOT books in a week to 10 days

I really enjoyed the fault in our stars. I haven't seen the movie though since I read an article saying that they made the ending happier and less emotional. Which really was the whole point of the story, to bring out emotions. I generally find that the movie ruins the book. Loved the hunger game series but I have found the movies to be far to compressed to really tell the complete story. I still enjoy them because I love Jennifer Lawrence. My fave movie of hers was winter's bone. And just like that I ruined your post! Haha

No I love talking about it! I don't like really any movie that is from a book, they can't possibly include every thought you're able to savor from reading .. I thought catching fire was a little better than the hunger games (movies , I mean) and I don't want to see TFIOS at all.

Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst and  I enjoyed it.

The book I am currently reading is Limitless Life by Derwin Gray which I am almost finished with.

I haven't seen catching fire yet.  I wait for them to come out on Netflix.  My hubby is horrified that I read the series.  Haha!  He's not a fiction person though so he's always judgemental.  I found myself yelling at the TV, "that's not how it happened!"  a lot.  I have noticed that the older Stephen King movies stayed pretty true to the story line.  Green Mile is and was my absolute favorite, I still cry like a baby at the end.  And seeing Pennywise personified has ruined clowns for me forever.

I just finished "Uncle Tom's Cabin". I can't believe I had never read it before. It was so excellent. I'm pregnant, and if it's a girl her name will be Evangeline.
