Movie that I need to read the book first:
The Emily Giffin novel is the top of every chick lit list. I have avoided reading it because I believe the plot involves a woman in love with her best friends fiance. However, it has many good reviews and I may bite the bullet and download it sometime soon.
This one goes without saying. Only a few months more to wait!
Local Author Favorite
The Help by Katherine Stockett is an amazing novel about friendship and overcoming prejudice. It is written by a Jackson, Mississippi native, and was on the best seller list for months last year. I listened to the audiobook that sucked me in for several days. I hope the accents are just as good.
Seeing it this Week
I read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen last year, and was sucked into the romantic and whimsical nature of the writing. Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson are good casting choices for the main characters.
Number one most anticipated book to movie adaptation
The Hunger Games trilogy is my newest obsession. It is a post apocalyptic YA novel about a group of children selected to go into an arena for a fight to the death. I promise you that it is by far way better than Twilight, and I am sure that it is the next big thing. Casting for the movie set for 2012 release has begun to being announced, and I look forward to that opening night the most.
