Song Stuck In My Head Saturday (7)

This week's song is Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. I'm more of an alternative type of girl but I love this song. I wish he was more cute....As usual, you know the drill if you want to do a post also. Thanks!

Ok, so I finally figured out what BEA stands for-Book Expo America-and now I want to know what it is. I went on the site but I still don't exactly get what it is and hwo everything works. Do you just go and hope you get in? Do you pay? Anyone know anything??

Thanks in advance!

Book Blogger Hop: December 10-13

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question, which comes from Angela at Library Girl Reads: What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guests posts, artivles, giveaways, or something else entirely?

I'm gonna have to go with something else entirely. I love seeing what others who are obsessed with books like me are reading. I usually always have another tab up of Goodreads because I'm always finding out about new books. I also like seeing what other people's reactions are to books I've already read. The giveaway and guests posts are a nice perk but it's not why I started reading blogs and then started my own.

Movievision Monday

I was just going to do an ol' regular post about a few movies I just recently saw, but then I thought I should just create a weekly post. Because I watch movies all the time and I always want to do posts on the good and really bad ones but I somehow never get around to it. So maybe...if I know my readers are expecting a post, I'll be able to do it!

Anna is a successful woman living in Chicago with an equally successful boyfriend. She believes he's going to ask her to marry him and when he doesn't she decides to go to Dublin and ask him herself on Leap Year. But she has some difficulty getting there and must rely on a bar owner to help her....I'm not a huge fan of Amy Adams but I absolutely adored this movie. The comedy and romance was perfect! Matthew Goode is one my list of future husbands now! I don't know if the 12.5% of me that's Irish came out or what, but I got so turned on by Declan's accent! You have to watch this movie. It's exciting, funny, and romantic but not a cliche.

After a fight with her boss, a wife and mother is convicted of murdering her boss after work. Her husband does everything in his power to get his wife another trial and prove her nnocencce but when all hope is lost he only has one option. To bail his wife out of prison....I saw this in theaters a few days ago and did not think it would be as great as it was. I was surprised because it was kind of low-budget but I think it made the story more real. Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks are amazing. And there's a small scene with the wonderful Liam Neeson! Every scene in this movie was interesting and intense. Seriously one of the best movies I've seen.

In 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island....AMAZING MOVIE! Someone is my AP Psych class mentioned this movie but I somehow still didn't see what was coming. Leonardo DiCaprio is amazing as always but Mark Ruffalo is awesome too. Actually, every single person in this movie was pretty much perfect. Martin Scorcese just makes another great movie!
