Theatrical Thursday!

Just like it sounds, Thursdays will deal with movies! I will talk about books turned into movies that will be coming out the next day, Friday. It may be just one, it may be multiple, it may just be one I'm excited about. Either way, maybe this section will encourage you to check out the movie and/or read the book.

Sara Gruen – Water for Elephants

As a general rule, I like to read the book before I see the movie whenever possible. Luckily, I listened to this book back in February 2010, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s quite the different love story. I cried, laughed, and took pleasure in reading/listening to this novel. It happens to be my book club’s July pick. I absolutely can’t wait to read it again. So if you have not read this one yet, please do so soon.

I don’t know about you guys, but I am SUPER stoked about this movie coming out. What I was NOT super stoked about was Robert Pattinson getting the part of Jacob. Now, I shouldn’t judge before I see the movie, but we’ve all seen Twilight (wait for my Friday Free-For-All when it I talk about that..), and this movie has to be SO much more. I’m not expecting Oscar-worthy from him, but I was hoping for Oscar-worthy from this movie, just because I love this book so much. Reese Witherspoon, on the other hand, is amazing, and I do have high expectations from her. The pictures from this movie look astounding. Check out the official movie page here.

Let me know if you go see this movie! I’m really looking forward to it, so let me know what you think. I will be seeing it hopefully Saturday morning, so no spoilers!! Any books into movies you want to see featured here? Comment! :o)


  1. I enjoyed this book too... read it quite a long time ago. Was so excited to see it coming to theaters and I'm dying to go, but alas, no sitter. Let me know if you feel the acting lives up to expectations. Maybe Pattinson will surprise us all. :)

  2. Thanks Katie!! I sure hope it's good. I'm going this morning, so I will post another blog about what I thought! Hopefully you get to go soon :o)


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! It means a lot!! Happy Reading!!
