Read this book...NOW!

Ok so seriously you all need to stop reading this post and run to your nearest Boarders/Barnes and Nobles/Library/ whatever and read this book:

Have any of you heard of this book? The movie (with Zac Efron who looks AMAZING) Charlie St. Cloud is based on it, and it's seriously one of the best books I've ever read. It's about a guy who looses his brother in a tragic car crash, and suddenly develops this "gift" to not only see him but others who have not yet moved on to Heaven. He also meets a girl, Tess, and well...there's a GIANT twist that I'm not going to spoil but I totally didn't see it coming. Based on the trailer for the movie I don't know how much of that twist they're going to address in the movie, but it looks good either way. This book is a really short read and I know you all will LOVE it!

This is the trailer for the movie (which I can't wait to see!)

Also on a totally random note, is anyone else out there excited for Weeds to start? I saw this preview yesterday and can't WAIT!

I love that all of the Botwins are on the road and I think it's going to be really funny to see where they end up. Have a good Wednesday night everyone!


  1. New follower... but I'm SO EXCITED for Weeds too!! I watched all the seasons on Netflix this spring and I just can't wait for the new ones to come out!

  2. I have seen the preview for the movie and thought that it looked good, but I had no idea that there was a book. I'm definitely adding it to my list.

  3. The first time I saw a trailer for Charlie St. Cloud I started tearing up. I'm sure I'd be an absolute mess during the movie. But I had no idea it was based on a book. I might have to check that out too!

  4. Sounds like a great book to read.
    I just got a Sony Reader for my birthday.
    Now I am looking to find books to read this summer.

  5. Our journey has begun!... secretly though =)

    If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and decided I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post now up. I’d love for you to stop by.

    Exciting things going on around here!

  9. I'm running to the bookstore right now, that sounds fabulous!
