SiS read-a-thon update #1

It’s time for the first update &mini-challenge! For this mini-challenge : favorite and least favorite movie adaptation of a book. Here’s my update and mini challenge answer! Update: Total Books Read: 0 Total Pages Read: 54 Books Read Since Last Update: 0 Pages Read since last update: 54 Total time read: 35 min How I’m currently feeling: Relaxed! Mini Challenge: Favorite book-movie adaptation: I love the Harry Potter movies. My favorites are the 6th, 7 part 1 and the first movie.  Least favorite book-movie adaptation: Now as much as I love the Harry Potter movies, the 3rd one was pretty different from the book for me. There was a new director and I just did not love it as much as the other ones. The Twilight movies are also a low point on movie book adaptations for me. (I do like the books a lot though) If YOU participate in this update and mini-challenge, you will be entered to win a copy of Outside In by Maria V. Snyder! Link… Read more »

Review- Fade

Review- Fade

Fade (Wake Trilogy #2) by Lisa McMann Hardcover, 248 pages Published February 10th 2009 by Simon Pulse Age Group: YA Source: Borrowed Buy this book: Amazon Summary (from Goodreads) SOME NIGHTMARES NEVER END. For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They’re just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck. Disturbing things are happening at Fieldridge High, yet nobody’s talking. When Janie taps into a classmate’s violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open — but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie’s in way over her head, and Cabe’s shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both. Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability — and it’s bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a dream catcher sealed, but what’s to come is way darker than she’d feared….  ———————————————————————– My review: Read my review of the first book in the wake trilogy HERE!
