The awesome Kelly at KellyVision started posting a weekly post highlighting whatever she happened to be obsessed with that week. I LOVE this idea, so much in fact that I will be doing it myself every Saturday.
Here are my obsessions this week.
Famous In Love by Rebecca Serle
Famous In Love was one of my must gets at BEA (my MUST GET if I am being honest). I love everything about the premise of this book. What girl didn't have this day dream at some point? Honestly, I am pretty sure it's a given. It should not surprise anyone that I couldn't wait to read it. I've already devoured it and fell in love. I am excited to be celebrating it's release with a blog event that will be revealed later! Mark this one on your calendars if you love Hollywood gossip, CW shows, and love triangles! It's a must read.
Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios
This is another case of not being able to wait until close to release to read it. Heather's world building is insane, and the sexiness of this book is off the charts. It's an understated sexy that caught me off guard. I talked to the lovely Margot from Epic Reads while in New York about this one, and she made me even more excited. Now that I am done though, all I want is book two. Luckily, as I am part of the Blogger Caravan, there is plenty of exciting things coming up between now and the release date.
The Night Before Our Stars
The Fault In Our Stars opens this weekend but I was able to go see it last night as part of a special event. The Night Before Our Stars was held in theatres throughout North America. It was a screening of the movie followed by a live simulcast Q and A with John Green, the cast, director and producer of the movie. The movie itself is a faithful, thoughtful adaptation of the source material. It mostly comes down to the wonderful casting choices (Ansel Elgort in particular stood out as Augustus Waters) and the scripts decision to capture the essence of the novel. So many of the iconic lines from the book made their way into the movie. It's a surreal experience to be ugly crying in a room full of other people who are also ugly crying, but it was amazing.
They also gave us a poster and cute charm bracelet as we arrived. I love both of them.
