Sometimes, a book is SO good that you think there is no way the movie will live up to the book. Right? The Twilight movies were a pretty decent rendition, especially by the end of the series. The movies did an outstanding job of bringing the Harry Potter books to life, and I liked the adaptation of The Hunger Games too. I'm also looking forward to Catching Fire, but that's a post for another day. But the recently released Beautiful Creatures? Not my favorite. Love the books, but the movie just didn't cut it for me. Now I absolutely love The Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare, and evidently, I am not alone! The City of Bones movie is expected to release August 21. I am hopeful that this will live up to my expectations. Check out the trailer below and see what you think!
I am looking forward to being the library media specialist at Hot Springs Junior Academy. I thought I'd start by telling you a little about myself. I have always loved to read which greatly influenced my decision to first become an English teacher and then a library media specialist. I thoroughly enjoy young adult literature. My favorite genres are fantasy and mystery. I think it is important to be a lifelong learner. I love to create, make, and learn more about technology. I have three beautiful bonus children. The two oldest are girls and the youngest is a boy. The oldest will be graduating high school next year, the middle will be in 10th grade, and the youngest is very excited about starting 1st grade.
