Movie Prep: Me Before You
You lied to me, movie trailer! Me Before You is hardly full of the sunshine that washes over a horrible situation, blinding us to all the bad that is usually banished from the love stories of our fairytales. Far from it, actually. Jojo Moyes’ novel is full of the bad.Read more "Movie Prep: Me Before You"
Book Club in Session: The Twelve (The Passage Book 2)
Back when Heather and I chose the highly recommended end of the world saga The Passage for our book club in early 2013, it was a no brainer to eventually read the follow up, The Twelve. Now that I’ve gotten through it, I’m not sure which took longer: getting around to starting the sequel, or […]Read more "Book Club in Session: The Twelve (The Passage Book 2)"
Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse Book 1) by James S. A. Corey
Impatience burned me the last time I chose to start a book series during season one of its adaptation to TV, but the trailer for Syfy’s The Expanse just looked too good not to crack open Leviathan Wakes. Boy am I glad I did.Read more "Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse Book 1) by James S. A. Corey"

Thanks to the casting […]Read more "Movie Prep: The Scorch Trials (The Maze Runner Book 2) by James Dashner"
Movie Prep: The Martian by Andy Weir
The Martian makes for a good book, but I can’t wait to see what a visual medium can do that the written words of Andy Weir cannot. Don’t let me down, Matt Damon!Read more "Movie Prep: The Martian by Andy Weir"
Movie Prep: Paper Towns by John Green
Similar to my experience with The Fault in Our Stars, it took a trailer for an upcoming movie adaptation to finally get me interested in reading the obnoxiously popular books of John Green. Also similar to The Fault in Our Stars: I find myself outside the fandom once the pages are done turning.Read more "Movie Prep: Paper Towns by John Green"
