#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.

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.

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…
