Mockingjay Part One Trailer

So I will be late in posting this, but I'm a very busy girl. I wanted to share it here in case anyone hasn't seen it with my opinions about what we see.

Seeing this trailer makes me very excited for the movie to come out. I'm sure my husband will want to see it with me, but because I know I'll cry I don't want him to see that. I hate crying in front of people.

The biggest thing that stands out that I didn't recognize at first that kind of bothers me is Effie. I missed that she was in the trailer as well as a poster that was put out a while ago. I knew they say she's have a bigger role in the movie than in the book, but I didn't realized this was how they were going to do it. I think it's a mistake to put her in district 13. I remember the scene in the book where she and Katniss reunite when she is to kill President Snow.

Most everything else I can overlook and looks to be done so well. I love Katniss uniform. I had such trouble visualizing what it would look like. I am very impressed by it.

A Few Quick Book Reviews

Man has it been that long since I've reviewed the books I've finished reading. I'm slowly getting books read, but I didn't realized I have 3 books to review. Since that is the case I will quickly review them here and mention what I am currently reading.

The Monuments Men
Yes the nerdy historian in me had to read this book before I saw the movie. This book is a very well written book that the non history love will enjoy. It tells an interesting story about the men and woman who saved thousands of art treasures and artifacts that Hitler tried to hide and destroy.

My Rating: 

Gone Girl

I had such high hopes for this book due the hype it had received. I was very disappointed and felt like I was lied to. I did not see how this book got such a following. Yes, it's twist is unexpected, but I don't think it was that great.

My Rating:

Flash and Bone

I finally started reading this series. This book wasn't as bad as others have been. It was a quick read and I didn't want to throw it across the room. It will probably be a while until I read the next books.

My Rating:

This book is such a new twist on the vampire/werewolf genre that we've seen recently. It is written well and I think it needs to be recognized for how it's pulled the boring old stories of vampires and werewolf's out of that.

My Rating:

Currently I am read: Game of Thrones, My Zombie My, Alpha Farm and Changeless.
