Waiting on Wednesday


Today I'm trying out my first "Waiting on Wednesday", please don't be too harsh. Today the topic I want to discuss is not a new book I'm looking forward to but an upcoming book to movie adaptation. These are more common now and every book lover is always anxious for the movie and to see how much it was ruined (or not ruined, some are great!).  What I'm looking forward to is Vampire Academy, coming into theaters this Valentine's Day!


I read this book soooo long ago, that I have the original cover. I loved this book and I'm currently re-reading it and falling in love all over again! I've missed Rose's witty lines, her relationship with Lissa and I'm so excited to see it translated to the big screen. There are so many reasons I'm excited and I feel this lists does a good job at explaining my top 3 reasons I think it's going to be awesome!


1. The Cast
I'm in love with this cast! I think the casting team did an amazing job! They all look just as I imagined and they even got a Russian actor to play Dimitri, brilliant! I know they will all do an amazing job.

2. The plot
While re-reading Vampire Academy I have picked up on many important events I'm excited to see brought to life. There are so many important points to make and I'm excited to see how it is done. Not to mention seeing all the relationships between the characters, Rose's witty lines, and who could forget the lust charm scene...

3. The advertising/promotion

I know a lot of fans of the book are upset with the way the film is being promoted. I was originally skeptical but realized what a smart bunch of people we had working on the films. If the film had been promoted as a paranormal/romance/action movie, new crowds would not take it seriously as seen it recent flops with The Host and Beautiful Creatures. By playing off the comedic side of the film and making fun of the film they are bringing in a new audience. Of course we know the whole movie is not funny (despite Rose's killer humor) but also amazing and serious. The new people watching the film will then realize how epic this series is. This is why I have total faith in the people working on this film!

Wow, that was a long rant! Anyway, I think the lesson we all learned today is that they suck at school. And that the Vampire Academy movie is going to be awesome and I can't wait to see it in theaters! (most likely more than once)

Until next time fellow readers, don't hesitate

Hey guys! It's been a while and I'm insanely behind on reviews. So sorry. Be on the look out the rest of the week for more reviews! (10 to be exact, yikes!) Anyway, let's get started! Oh, and also HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Synopsis: Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is.
Review:
OMG! Words can literally not describe how much I loved this book! Daemon is so sarcastic and I love his relationship with Katy. First of all, can we talk about how awesome Katy is. She is one of us, a book blogger! It made the book even more relatable. I loved the suspense in this book, the tension, the friendship, the romance, everything! Jennifer L. Armentrout is able to create such interesting character relationships that do not seem lame or over exagerated. She always keeps you on your toes and you are never going to be bored. Don't let aliens scare you away from this book because it is so good and there are no creepy green guys. I can't wait to see what happens next! Onyx here I come...

Until next time fellow readers, live long and prosper.

xoxo Sarah
