#ArmchairBEA #Giveaway (US/CDN) & Book-To-Movie Adaptions

ArmchairBEA

Yesterday was about characters and blogging basics. I didn't really have much to put in other than a late Instagram post.
A photo posted by Freda Mans (@fredasphotos) on

This book was a life changer for me. Why? The characters. If you haven't read this or any Steinbeck novels, do so. Sooner, rather than later too.

Anywho... today is about books that become movies, or even tv shows. For me, I have told the world I want too see The Lunar Chronicles made into something visual and on-screen. It would seriously be the one thing I would pay money to go see. 
Because of my love of this series by Marissa Meyer, I have decided to offer up the first book that starts it all, Cinder, for giveaway.

HERE'S THE CATCH;

US readers vie for an ecopy.

CDN readers vie for print.

Both delivered straight from Amazon. YAY!

Sorry to my international readers and ABEA readers, them's the breaks when my wallet is only so deep. 

I hope whoever wins, loves this book, and series, as much as I do.
Good luck!

#ArmchairBEA Visual Expressions & Social Media

ArmchairBEA

I'm all about the visual aspect of anything in life. You look at food and get hungry before you actually sit down to eat. You see a cover of a book before you read it. That cover should entice you. Make you want to look to the back for a synopsis or even flip through the pages. Visual Expressions are an everyday thing.
Today, thanks to a great interview at ArmchairBEA's headquarters, I learned about webcomics. I didn't really know they were a thing. Sad, but true. I read comics, am a huge fan actually, like, Archie & the Gang, Garfield... OMG he is hilarious, and I love the strip in Saturday's paper, Pickles. That old guy is jokes. Pickles is probably my favorite comic on the planet. The dynamic between him and his wife makes me think that's what Vinny and I will be like in a few years. :-)
This past year I have gotten into graphic novels. I didn't really steer from them, but thought maybe they were too immature for an almost 40 year old. (Yeah, I'm that old.) Turns out, you can get adult graphic novels. I read a Neil Gaiman one that was not for kids. Decided from then on, I wouldn't be so one-sighted. Even the ones geared for kids happen to be alright. Just like any other genre, it's hit or miss. 

Now, Social Media.

Blogging is social media. You put your thoughts out there and people read it. You get social. The more you write, the more people come, the more social you are.
Simple.
Yet, not so simple.
You have to be yourself, be creative, and not be offensive all at once. Seeing as how things on the world wide web can get lost in translation, it's not always an easy feat. Not everyone gets sarcasm. I have a hard time expressing it all in 140 characters or less.
Which brings me to Twitter.
Twitter is the biggest way to get word out. Provided you have a decent following already. Then you will see retweets and even some will favorite the tweets for later. You only have a small amount of characters you can use though. Still, with so many people on it, it is a fantastic way to advertise anything or just get word out. 
Facebook is another way. Creating a fan page is easy and painless. Word of mouth brings lots of new people in, and you can post any amount of messages you want. Facebook for me is not as fun anymore. You probably know the term, 'trolls'. They are real. They will bother you, but try not to let them.
Instagram is the newest thing I'm hooked on. You can follow friends, family, celebs, stores...  pretty much anything, even ArmchairBEA. :-)  People post photos with captions or hashtags. It's a great way to get the visual expression you look for.
Pinterest is the last one for me. Pinterest is a place where you can keep an organized hold on things you love or want to try out. It's a great place to get recipes, DIY ideas, fashion, books and more. Best part is visuals come with it in the form of photos. 
I do use more channels, but these are my top ones.
Social Media is the way of the future. If you're not part of it now, someday you probably won't have a choice. It is how everyone will be accessible. I'll leave you with my links. Stalk me all you want. No, seriously.. I'm lonely. :-)

#42: Aoléon The #MartianGirl (Part 1) by Brent LeVasseur

Crop circles magically appear in Farmer Johnson’s field. A mysterious light sweeps over the night sky and awakens Farmer Johnson and Gilbert, the boy next door. 

Curious, Gilbert ventures out to discover the source of the light and stumbles into a beautiful Martian girl sitting in a crop circle. Farmer Johnson also investigates the strange light, and thinking that Gilbert and Aoléon are vandals, he chases them. But they sprint to Aoléon’s saucer and escape only to be pursued by the U.S. Air Force. 

Gilbert has never been attacked by swarms of giant killer robots. Never met strange aliens from other worlds. Never skyboarded across a megalopolis hidden deep inside an extinct volcano. Never trekked across a vast Martian desert. And never been eaten alive by a gigantic slor (well, almost never, unless you count Billy the fat bully at school). 

And luckily, he has never ever confronted an evil ruler of Mars bent on conquering the Earth to steal its cows. 

Never...until now! 

This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for. 

If only he can survive.

REVIEW:
I want a moog!
What a delightful story! This coming from someone who isn't into sci-fi much... but this story is great! It has digitally animated photos to accompany this galactic adventure. They bring the story to life, when you see the scene played out.
Aoléon is a groovy martian. I love the dynamic between her and Gilbert. She is very mischievous but a lot of fun too.
That's the kind of stuff the kids love and keep glued to. The parents will like the book too, but they are more happy with the assurance their children are reading age-appropriate adventures. These will excite and not frighten.
I actually look forward to the second part. What will happen now Gilbert has left Earth?

#ArmchairBEA Introductions

ArmchairBEA

I'm back for my third fourth year in a row for ArmchairBEA! I love it! It's a great way to stay involved in all the what's what of BEA, without the travel, though BEA is on my bucketlist. So let's get into who I am, for anyone who hasn't been here before.

I'm Freda, and this site is my voice. I am Canadian, coming from Ontario. I created this site in August of 2009! Yup, long time ago... and it has come pretty far since then.
Technically, I am a lifestyle blogger who is a bookworm. Initially, I was just a bookie, but my site merged into more. Books are always going to be my #1 love though, and what I post most about. I couldn't imagine life without them.
I love books, obvi, and I even write my own poetry. Yeah, yeah, I'm sensitive that way. I also love fashion, beauty, (they kinda go hand-in-hand), movies, music, photography, (which I also have my blog; Day One Photography... just a hobby photographer - no biggie), animals - especially my fubabies, Bella and Princess Ewok, and family. I'm sure there's tons more I can say I love but we'd be here all night.... and no one wants that.

My theme song



I could have picked a million songs to fit the bill... this is just one I keep playing lately.

Everyone MUST read
My review
This is one of those classics that literally everyone on the planet has to read. It is probably the best book I have ever read. It's also a story that flows through any generation. I highly recommend you read it, if that rock has you buried and you haven't already. 

If stranded on a desert island, I'd have to have Chevy Stevens there. She is my favorite Canadian author. She's talented enough that she could tell me stories everyday. Plus she is pretty. No one wants to be alone on an island with an ogre. Right?!
A photo posted by Freda Mans (@fredasphotos) on
Okay, so you probably figured out by now that I'm a bit of a nut. That's good though. No one likes plain, and plain is one thing I will never be. I'm more like neon tie dye in abstract. :-)

Happy ABEA and BEA to the lucky ducks in NYC!

OTHER REVIEWS OF CASSANDRA CLARE'S BOOKS:
My review of, City of Bones
My review of, What Really Happened in Peru

REVIEW:
Okay then.
What a weird place to stop. They could of at least finished dumping the soup.
If not for the ending, I would say I loved the story. It still needed to go somewhere though. Thankfully, it's a series, so I'm sure it will come together. For most of it though, I was completely immersed in the drama surrounding Simon, at the academy. It was fun to read about, I guess I just wished for more.
Can't wait to read more about these characters!

REVIEW:
Fantastic!
I love movies that are based on real events. They are usually most inspirational and often the most interesting to watch. This movie fit everything I expected and more.
The triumph the boys experienced as they succeeded and gained self confidence was beautiful to watch. 
You do need tissues on hand for a couple of moments, but for the most part, the film is upbeat.
This is a movie to watch with the family, provided your kids are not too small. The family could enjoy this movie together, as it's a Disney film, you know it has wholesome viewing material.
I love this movie and know it's one I will watch again and again. You should definitely see it too! 

5/5

#40: Stuck In Downward Dog by Chantel Guertin

Mara Brennan is about to unravel. Three days after her 28th birthday, her boyfriend dumps her, leaving her with nothing but a basement apartment, a futon and a pile of unpaid bills. Mara realizes it’s time for an identity makeover. Navigating the dueling worlds of yoga and cosmetic surgery, gourmet dinners and Frankenberry cereal, etiquette handbooks and too-helpful loved ones, Stuck in Downward Dog is Chantel Guertin’s unforgettable comic debut about how to get unstuck when you’re caught in a rut.

REVIEW:
Fun!!
This book is one woman's outlook on her own life after she feels she hit rock bottom. Some would say it had to do with a guy, but I say it was all about her and her relationships in general. You really need to have a good relationship with yourself before having it with anyone else. Mara learns this lesson in the story.
This book was so easy to read, not only for the modern feel to it but for the often humorous look at things in life. The story felt very contemporary and I really needed that at that moment. I think lots of people are going to agree that this is a great read!
4/5
