#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.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms.

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
