Books to Movies

Last week I did a post about movies I was excited to see. This Friday I decided to share with you the ones I am anticipating that are based on books.

Number One: The Host


Now, I didn't actually read this book because, and don't hate me, I can't stand the Twilight series. I'll admit I was afraid to even touch this one after how horrible Twilight ruined Meyers writing for me. I have heard that the writing in the Host is better, but I think I'd just rather see the movie. I love Sci/Fi so I can't not check this out. The concept seems very interesting.

2: Beautiful Creatures:


I know this one came out back in February, but I never got the chance to see it. I loved the books and the writing. So I have to see this. Sadly I will have to wait till it is out on DVD. These books reminded me of Anne Rice's Mayfair Witches, except a teen version.

3. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones


I just started reading this series. I'm on book one and already loving it. I'm pretty used to movies not living up to the books, but I'm still seeing it. I mean Jonathan Rhyse Meyers is one of my favorite actors (Tudors - Hellllooooo). And I also really love Jamie Campbell Bower (that's one hot Jayce)!

4. Catching Fire

Enough said.

5. World War Z


Dear Brad Pitt, do not mess this up for me! Sorry guys, I haven't been a Brad Pitt fan in a very long time. I will be seeing this though.

I will also need to buy this shirt finally and wear it to all of them!

Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. Brilliant post! I'm really looking forward to seeing the first two and World War Z, though looking at the trailer, that couldn't be further from the original book!

  2. I read The Host. I didn't like it, but I didn't like the Twilight series either, so I didn't really expect to like it. I haven't decided if I'll bother with the movie yet.

    But I will definitely be in line for Catching Fire.

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
