You've Got Mail

Ah, You’ve Got Mail. A classic rom-com and one of my personal favorites. It’s so dated with it’s AOL dial-up tones and VCRs but I love that kind of stuff. I think that it’s pointless to try and make something “timeless” and forego making modern references. It is exactly those references to technology and culture in a book that gives a certain personality and awareness. But besides that, You’ve Got Mail is a quirky and enchanting film that makes me want to snuggle up and read Pride and Prejudice. I don’t know what it is about modern interpretations of classics, I’m like a moth to a flame. But let’s be honest, Meg Ryan (aka Kathleen Kelly) is no Elizabeth Bennet – not enough fire but completely enjoyable to watch her awkwardness.

Just a friendly reminder to never judge a book by its cover, or person for that matter. Sound off in the comments if you have seen and loved this nineties gem!

Top Ten Tuesday: Movies To Get In The Halloween Spirit

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish

I’m quite the wimp when it comes to scary movies believe it or not. Yet time and time again I subject myself to watching horror/suspense movies because…well, I don’t know, residual masochism maybe?

I broke this week up into two groups, some films that make me…

and others that, well…

Top Ten Tuesday: New Series I Want To Start

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish

Okay so I have a confession…

Um…

Well you see…

Most of these “new” series are books that I’ve had from Harper Collins for close to a year now. There were a lot of reasons: mood reading, my summer rereading kick, but most of all, I hate starting series when all the books aren’t published. I suffered through Harry Potter like the rest of the world and I never want to do that again. Besides I’m notorious for my impatience – if it takes too long for a series to be published, I just drop it like a hot cake. However these are in my Kindle so I will get to them…eventually.

Waiting on Wednesday: Parallel Universes, Oh My!

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that the book blogging community is eagerly anticipating.

This week I can’t wait to read…

Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.

//Why am I Waiting?//

THIS SOUNDS SO INTERESTING!

I’ve been pretty much been sold on parallel universes ever since watching the cinematic masterpiece that is Back to the Future. The beau and I quote this movie trilogy all the time and will marathon it now and again when the mood strikes us. Sometimes thinking about travel through parallel universes gives me a headache (so many theories!). But it’s always a great “what if” conversation starter.

Waiting on Wednesday – April 9, 2014

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that the book blogging community is eagerly anticipating.

This week I can’t wait to read…

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems besides the point now.Maybe that was always besides the point.Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

//Why am I Waiting?//

For a while now I’ve pretty much been stalking Rainbow Rowell without ever reading one of her novels.

But this sounds just as amazing as Fangirl, Eleanor & Park, and Attachements, which are all on my immediate TBR (damn my mood reader tendencies). Plus it deals with very pertinent relationship issues and time travel. Ugh, this has ME written all over it.
