Wednesday #wanttoread List

It's now the rage for Hollywood to buy scripts based on amazing books. I mean, why not? You take a great story, and you write a script, and voila! You have a blockbuster hit. Pair it with the right actors and actresses and you've got the best thing to ever happen to that author. I know, some of you could write diatribes on how someone has murdered your book, and how you cannot get over how unlike the book the movie actually turned out to be. When done well, it is a beautiful thing to see.

Cue music..."Don't you...forget about me. Don't, don't, don't..." This book has been published for some time now, and even though I am technically "cheating" on my title "Want to read" list (because I've read it), this book is included here because I want you to read it before it becomes a movie!

Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern  a.k.a Where Rainbows End

If you think this may be up your alley, check out this trailer for the movie WATCH!

I know you want to read it now, and I hope you will.

Happy Reading.

If You Read This..Then Read This!

If you're like me, you find it incredibly difficult to follow up a great read with another equally appealing and enticing book. The disappointment that comes from successive books that just don't hit the mark can leave you feeling hopeless. I never shop at Target without walking past the book section to see what new friends have arrived. And by friends, I mean books. One of the best ways for books to sell is to see a book that you loved with an arrow pointing to your next read. If you loved this, then you are certain to love this book! I am pulling together some of my "If you loved this, then you'll love that" suggestions for you. Just like the Target book section, but without the cool pop-up sign.

If you read this... The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

Then read this... All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

If you read this... Tempting Fate by Jane Green

Then read this... After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Stay tuned! I'll be bringing you a list next Monday as well. Have a great week!

Happy Reading.
