Weekend Plans: From Watching to Reading

Hey bookworms! We haven’t talked in a bit, so I thought why not give you guys my plans for the weekend. No adventures out for me though because work forgot to include P (pay) in PTO. They plan to pay me on this check, but it ruins all the plans I had set. I am already eager to go back to Vancouver, 3.5 days was not enough.

I still want to go to Vancouver Island, go whale watching, maybe see the orchestra, go to the museum. Get a better place to stay next time for sure. My back is still aching from the beds. I didn’t take many pictures… I am the worst at that… I like to consider myself a live in the moment kind of girl. Commit to memory rather than pause to get the perfect shot if that makes sense?

Hopefully I have more to tell and show you next time, but know I was happy and content with my trip.

Watching

Anne with an E

I am currently binging this on Netflix and loving it! It makes me want to explore the setting even more than before. The cast of children really bring the characters to life and it makes me want to continue reading the books. It is an amazing series! Can’t wait for season 2!

As for tomorrow I plan to have a movie day planned

A Lot Like Love

Tomorrow is going to be a mushy day except for one movie on the list if you can’t tell and I love the friendship this movie starts out with and I think it is exactly what I need.

One Day

Honestly one of my favorite movies and love stories and to me one of the most realistic (also one of my favorite books). When life gets a little rough it is one of the things that makes it easier is watching this.

Porco Rosso

An adorable lesser known Studio Ghibli film. It is cute and funny definitely lift your spirits in a good way kind of movie if you’re needing a smile. Yes, I suck at summaries and honestly haven’t seen it in years XD

and end my night with

Lady and the Tramp

What better way to get ready for a work week than to end your weekend with a disney classic? Always will be one of my favorites and it is one of the best love stories in history. At least in my opinion…

What I’ll be Reading 

Perfect by Cecelia Ahern

Perfect

My current audio book listen and I’m only a few minutes in so I don’t have thoughts yet, but I was really inspired by the first one. Needless to say I have high hopes for the sequel and I may be a bit biased because she is one of my favorite authors.

Moon Chosen by P.C. Cast

Moon Chosen

I haven’t picked it up since before I left on my trip, but I feel it is a good time to pick it back up and I feel like it will keep me from getting lost in my own thoughts.

The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne

The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh.jpg

Because I think everyone should read children’s classics no matter how old they are. They can hold more more truth than that of adult fiction. I think I will read a few tales and see what I can learn..

Well bookworms I think that is all that is on my agenda this weekend and maybe an ebook if I decide to turn on my nook tonight. What is on your holiday weekend agenda? Any great books or movies? Let me know in the comments and I hope you all have fun! Happy Reading!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Love to See Hypnotize Me on the Big Screen

T10 2

Hey Bookworms! Sorry for another late post, but my computer has decided to have issues today. It is getting older and I think it heard that I want to replace it, so I think it is rebelling against me… Any who today’s post is another Top Ten Tuesday post a weekly meme in which we are given a theme or question and must respond with the top 10 books that correspond for us! This meme is hosted by the lovely blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s question is what Top Ten books would you like to see come to life on screen as either shows or movies? I am going to do 5 Movies and 5 Shows! At the end I will also include my favorite adaptions. So let’s get started!

Top 5 Books I’d Love to See Hypnotize Me on the Big Screen: Movies

1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus

Anyone who knows I love this book knows how much I want to theme everything after this book! I would love to see the magic come to the silver screen and I would even love to be an extra as a Rever! I think a few more years and special effects could make this book an amazing movie! I think the HP set designers would make the tents lovely!

2. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

Revolution

I think this would be a really touching and interesting piece to see on screen. The themes would really come through strong and maybe bring a few tears forth

3. If You Could be Mine by Sara Farizan

If You Could be Mine

Honestly hits a lot of topics especially about accepting yourself this would be another movie to break your heart, but a movie you could connect with the characters with.

4. Everything Leads to you by Nina LaCour

Everything Leads to You

I think this would be beautiful and cute story to see and make you melt as well as give an inside to movies. I finished this recently and loved it!

5. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Cruel Beauty

I don’t think Beauty and the Beast gets enough adaption to screen because Cinderella mostly dominates retellings and I loved this world and would love to see a not perfect heroine who is not all good come to life on screen.

Top 5 Books I’d Love to See Hypnotize Me on the Big Screen: Shows

1. Vampire Academy and/or Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
Vampire AcademyBloodlines

I know the movie flopped (even if I thought it was awesome) I’d love to see the school aspect and my favorite characters on screen especially Adrian!

2. The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

The SelectionThe EliteThe One

I know this is optioned for a movie, but it would be so much more fun to see this as a show. We’d get to know the characters better and get to feel more. Get to see the little details more intimately.

3. House of Night series by PC and Kristin Cast

Marked

I know many people don’t care for how long this series is, but I think as as a show they can focus more on the major plot points plus it is another school atmosphere I’d love to explore.

4. Raised by Wolves Series Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Raised by Wolves

I didn’t liked the last book, but I would love to see Bryn’s life in the pack and all the details. Plus I love werewolves a werewolf book had to make it on my list!

5. Paranormalcy Series by Kiersten White

Paranormalcy

I would love to see Evie’s life in the agency and her interactions with those she captures! As well as discovering who she is

My Favorite Adaptions

1. The Bitten TV Show

I just am sooo in love with this series and it is my not so guilty pleasure! So Happy it got signed for season 3!

2, Howl’s Moving Castle

The book has more world building to it and has a slightly different setting, but both are adorable to be engrossed in. It has a beautiful world!

3. PS I Love You

I read the book after and I know the setting is Americanized, but Ahern was on board with it I think the tragedy in this movie still played out beautifully! Plus it has Gerard Butler need I say more? ^_~

Well bookworms those were my choices. What were yours? Link me yours down below. What are your favorite adaptions I am always looking for more movie recommendations! I just can’t do scary. I know this is up a little late, but technology wasn’t my friend today. Hope it will be nice for my upcoming posts! This post did inspire me to write something similar to this topic. So look for that on Monday! Happy reading!
