I sort of make it a point not to see movies based on books I've liked, but I do make exceptions.

This is Where I Leave You looks like a great cast for that book.

The West Memphis Three story freaks me out in many ways. I've heard the book is exceptional, but I likely won't read it. I may see the movie.

I'm definitely seeing Gone Girl.

How did I not know about Dark Places? What a perfect cast!

I've read Mockingjay, Dark Places, Gone Girl, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Maze Runner.

Saw Divergent over the weekend and liked it more than the book. Perfect casting of Four. So hot!

I had no idea they were making Alexander and the Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day into a movie! It was one of my favorite when I was little. And knowing it comes out on my birthday, makes me really excited for it!!
