Hello, lovely ladies 🙂
I hope ya’ll had a good week. Over here in Oz autumn is in full swing. We’re seeing a steady change in minimum and maximum temperatures. I always feel sad to see the summer go.
As far as the movies are concerned, Susan shared the following:
50 Shades Girl Portland – Shooting on The Grace
Just Jared – Dakota’s mom, Melanie Griffith, visits the set
Laters, Baby – Danny Elfman returns for the score of Darker
Just Jared – Brant Daugherty Goes Shirtless to Flaunt Buff ‘Fifty Shades’ Bod
50 Shades Girl Portland – The cemetery. I think this is probably the most interesting one… Do you remember, at the end of Freed, when we got that glimpse into their future life in the meadow with Teddy and baby number two on the way? Ana asks Christian if he wants to name their coming baby girl after his mother. He tells her no, but he does mention that she (Ana) had dragged him to his mother’s grave, obviously in an effort to find closure. In the book we don’t read anything more about it (other than that mention), but it begs the question, why are they filming something that seems like that scene? Are we looking at bonus material? Perhaps a whole extra movie? Considering the length of the story it’s not like they’re lacking scenes. If anything, they will have to cut some in order to fit the book into the mandatory film slot time. Why this meander into a barely there avenue when there are so many parts of the book we want to see come to life on the silver screen?
Then, completely unrelated to the movie, but still worth highlighting because of the great cause: check out Bored Panda’s feature on firefighters posing with rescue puppies for charity…
Cute, huh? 😉 Thank you, Kereny for the great link!
This week I read:
Rock Chick Regret by Kristen Ashley, book seven in the Rock Chick series, was okay. No great shakes for me here, but I cannot exactly pinpoint why it wasn’t my thing. Technically, it ticks most boxes, but, for me, it lacked va-va-voom.
Currently I’m reading:
Ladies Man by Katy Evans, book three in the Manwhore series. This is playboy Tahoe and love-shy Gina’s story. So far, things are looking good…
This week I’m expecting:
Deception by Aleatha Romig, book three in the Infidelity series. Originally I wasn’t crazy about this story, but it’s sorta’ grown on me. Let’s hope book three does not disappoint.
And as it’s almost the new month, here are the new May releases – compliments of Goodreads:
I absolutely LOVE getting this monthly email telling me of what’s to come. It’s my favorite Goodreads feature 🙂
Lastly, Sharon shared this. Worth a try, don’t ya’ think? LOL!
Have a fantastic weekend, girls. And don’t forget to share your treasured reads with us!
