BBAW: Day Five: Saying Goodbye For Another Year

Friday: Share a highlight of this year’s BBAW. Whether it’s a blog you discovered or a book you’re going to read or a way you felt refreshed, this is the day to celebrate the week!


Hi people! Sorry I am late today, was super busy. Better late than never though, so here I am.
Today is an opportunity for me to share some of this year's highlights of the event, though I am sad to say, other than community and meeting new blogs, I have no highlights. BBAW always introduces you to new bloggers and books, so that's not really new. The did away with the awards, and I'm happy and sad about that. It's true, you always see the same blogs getting nominated, but man, they must work their asses off to get that nomination every year. I enjoy supporting those blogs with virtual awards. It gives an extra boost or confidence that the content you put forth readers want and enjoy. I am sad to not be able to give that nudge of love, so I hope Amy reads this, and her crew at BBAW bring it back next year.
I feel like this week went by fast, but am also glad it's over. I love participating, but sometimes it feels like work too. And with that it has it's good and bad moments. I had to stop myself a few times from saying things that might be taken different from how I intended, and it all stemmed around the post from yesterday, Pimp That Book. I can't believe how literal some people take that word, "pimp". If only I could pimp out a book, maybe, just maybe, people would be smarter..... but that can't happen. I may have just started a controversy for the "Blogging Lynch Mob" to take one out of me, but it's a harmless term when referenced with books, so lighten up! Plus, I don't scare easily so go nuts if that's your thing....

See ya next year, and hey, PIMP A BOOK!

So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life—to start again as someone new? Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel. Cat’s buried any trace of her old self so well, no one knows how to find her. But she can't bury the past—or her own memories.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
