Here’s this week’s question:

“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”

This week I got Heist Society by Ally Carter from the library. I’ve heard all kinds of good things about it, but I haven’t read it yet. Plus the next book in the series looks really good too.

Here’s this week’s question:

What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?

It would probably have to be dystopian for me. It seems to be such a big thing in YA right now, but I just can’t get into it, no matter how much I try. Maybe I’ve been trying the wrong books, I don’t know.

If you have any suggestions for an amazing dystopian book, leave me a comment, I’d really like to enjoy one!

Here’s this week’s question:

How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

Most of the books that I read I borrow from the library. Seriously, if you don’t use your local library you’re missing out! I can borrow as many books, DVD’s, and CD’s as I want in a year for just $12. The library is so worth it, so if you don’t have a library card, go out today and get one.

I also get some books for review too. Many thanks go out to my contacts in the publishing world for getting some amazing books into my hands so I can share them with my readers!

Here’s this week’s question:

Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!

Probably this post I did for Armchair BEA about my favorite bloggers. Really, blogging is all about community, and I have to say that the book blogging community is a great one, we’re pretty spoiled to have all the amazing people that we do being a part of it.

Here’s this week’s question:

“What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?”

What great timing! This past weekend I watched two versions of Little Women.

The first one was from the 1994, with Susan Sarandon as Marmee, Winona Ryder as Jo, Kirsten Dunst as a young Amy, Claire Danes as Beth, and Christian Bale as Laurie. I loved everything about this movie. And as with every good movie version of this book, it made me cry. A lot.

The second one I watched was from 1949, with Elizabeth Taylor as Amy and Janet Leigh as Meg. I didn’t think this one stayed as true to the book, which I didn’t like. But I think Elizabeth Taylor did a fabulous job as Amy. I thought the casting was a little off, cause one or two of the younger sisters looked older than the older sisters. That’s not to say though that I didn’t like it so much as to not cry, cause there was definitely tears, once again. Though maybe not as many.

So I’d definitely have to go with the 1994 version of Little Women as my favorite. Plus you can’t go wrong with Christian Bale.
