#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.

    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.

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.


4.5/5

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
