Books & Movies – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

I saw this trailer yesterday and it made me think that some books do make better movies. I read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter last year and it was okay. My review is here if you’re interested. Oddly, this book was bought by my husband who may have been thrown off by Abraham Lincoln in the title because, as far as I know, he doesn’t read anything with vampires in it.

Here’s the trailer. Planning to see it? Have you read the book or are you planning to read the book because of the movie?


Books & Movies – The Woman in Black

I read Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black in 2011 and enjoyed it immensely. My review is here. Tension filled and creepy, it’s a great book for a dark winter night. When I heard they would be making a movie, I worried because as with all good books, it could be ruined. After a look at the trailer, I think they may have captured some of what made me love the book.

Oh, yes, and that’s Daniel Radcliffe. Harry Potter no more.

The Snow Post

So, that’s a little lie because there’s no snow where I live (at least not at the moment) but I’m hoping to step off a plane in Colorado and see some.  Yep.  I’m taking a few days off to enjoy winter weather fun.

I’ve downloaded several books to my Nook and packed a warm sweater (OK, I can’t lie, I packed several sweaters.) and I’m off.  I shall return soon with photos of snowy mountains to share.

Since all will be silent here, I wanted to leave you with a few videos I found.  The next book on my reading list is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte so I thought a link to the movie trailer would be appropriate.  The movie comes out in early 2011.

One of the books I downloaded for this trip was A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin because HBO will showing a series based on the book next year and I must read it before that.  Well, I wanted to read it for a while but this is my reason at the moment and I’m sticking to it.

Anyway, enjoy. 🙂
