#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.

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!

  3. I haven't read Cinder yet but I have it on my tablet, I'm looking forward to it ! However, I'm a huge Steinbeck fan, I've read 8 of his novels/plays and don't intend to stop there ;)

  4. Cinder sounds like it'd be a wonderful pick as a movie. All of my blogging friends keep telling me that series is a must read. I have them, now I just need to read them. :)

  8. Not entering the giveaway as I have this one. I adored it and would love to see this series as movies. They'd be every bit as great as Hunger Games or Divergent! Maybe better????

  9. Yes, I'd like to see Cinder on the big screen too. The special effects could be amazing.

  10. (I'm having trouble commenting today, so if I already commented, you can deleted this.)

    I read East of Eden a few years ago. It really hit me. I especially loved the concept of timshel.

  11. I'd like to see what would happen with Geralyn Beauchamp's Time Masters series taken to the screen. I know enough to know she keep her hands in what was going on with it so as to avoid certain Book to Movie blunders and she also knows a bit about screen writing so could probably edit the basic bones even.

  12. I think Cinder would be great to see at the movies!

  13. I think Cinder would make a great movie. Also, Across the Universe by Beth Revis.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
