The Movie Lover’s reading list for 2014

Happy Friday, FFLs!

Years ago, when I was in elementary school, I remember reading “The Giver.”  Quite a few years have passed since then (and just a tad of added maturity), so when I heard “The Giver” was being made into a movie, I had no other choice but to revisit it once again.  I luckily still had the book over all these years, so I decided to get a jump start on it before the film comes to theatres (August 15, 2014).

One of my “resolutions” for 2014 is to read more, so why not combine this goal with my love of film and create a reading list of books being made into movies this year.  If you enjoy reading a book before seeing its film version, check out this list I found on BuzzFeed.  There’s a pretty great variety on the list, if I do say so myself.  If anyone does read any of the books on this list, reviews and comments are always welcome!

MONEY SAVER: If you don’t want to spend a bunch of money buying each book at a bookstore, check your local library or online (Amazon is a go-to of mine) to get the book at a better (or library=free) cost.

Happy Veterans Day!

First and foremost, Happy Veterans Day to all of the brave individuals who have served for our country.

After watching the Packers lose on Sunday, it’s back to the grind.  Mondays are always long and tiresome, but hopefully this news will cheer all you FFLs up:

For those of you who weren’t aware before, Marcus Theatres used to offer $5 select movies every Wednesday and Thursday.  As awesome as that was, their newest promotion is even more amazing.  Now, Marcus Theatres has a new promotion where ALL movies are only $5 on Tuesdays.  As a bonus, you also get a free 44 oz. popcorn on Tuesdays through December.  I hope all you film lovers take advantage of this deal, I know I’m going to!
