Delirium Movie Clip

Finally after being in my TBR for so long I finished Delrirum by Lauren Oliver. It was such an incredible book and I wanted to share this tv show pilot clip.

There was supposed to be a TV show for the book but the pilot didn't do so well, but I found a 6-minute TV show clip staring Emma Roberts as Lena. It's pretty interesting to see Hollywood's take on the book. The show does seem more relaxed then the movie meaning the characters don't seem to cautious about delirium amor deliria nervosa.

Paper Towns - Movie!

Nat Wolff
After The Fault in Our Stars was produced, Fox 2000 is going to sign on Paper Towns.

Apparently Quentin will be played Nat Wolff who plays Isacc in The Fault in Our Stars movie.

I'm pretty excited that more than one of John Green's books is going to be adapted into film.

Speaking of TFIOS I'm deciding if I should refrain from watching Divergent just because I want my first impression of want Hazel and Augustus to be fresh. Rather than watching the movie and always thinking about them as siblings in Divergent. Strange huh?

Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma

Imaginary Girls
by Nova Ren Suma
Pages: 348
Released: June 14, 2011
Imaginary Girls
Summary: Chloe and her sister Ruby are extremely close. One summer they are at a party at a reservoir and Chloe is swimming around. She moves around and feels someone's fingers and realizes that it's a dead body. This experience traumatizes her and she goes to live with  her father. Two years later Ruby shows up unexpected and persuades Chloe to move back in with her. When Chloe returns she finds strange things happening--things that she cannot even begin to explain. And now she has to find out the secret that Ruby has been hiding from her all these years.

My Thoughts: What did I just read?!?!

What I liked: The book's promise of a very strange story and the sibling bond between Chloe and Ruby. The amazing cover art.

What I disliked: The best way that I can explain this book is by referencing "Fight Club" (I won't' spoil the movie of course!) Okay so Fight Club has this insane plot with a huge twist and then we are given an explanation that totally sums up the story and makes you think "oh, it all makes sense now." Well with Imaginary Girls, it has this eerie plot and twist and all of a sudden the book never explains anything--it ends!? Chloe had a very unhealthy obsession with Ruby and everything was "Ruby this" "Ruby that." I honestly got mad reading this because I kept putting it down and asking when the author was going to start answering questions instead of leading us in this huge circle.

Conclusion: I wouldn't say that I recommend this book for those who have similar tastes in books like me. But On the other hand there are some positive reviews for this book too. So check it out, but we warned, you'll still be confused when the book ends.

2.5/5 star

Girl, Stolen by April Henry

Girl, Stolen
by April Henry
Pages: 213
Released: Sept 28, 2011
Girl, Stolen
Summary: Cheyenne is sitting in the backseat of her mother's car while her mother goes into the pharmacy. Its only been five minutes and her mother has already returned. The door slams louder than usual and Cheyenne smells cigarettes--it's definitely not her mother. She realizes the car is being stolen and she has no way of escaping... because for the past three years, Cheyenne has been blind. Who will save Cheyenne?

My Thoughts: So much happens in a 200 page book!

What I liked: I loved everything about the Cheyenne's character, she was intelligent, cunning, brave, strong, and independent. And I loved to hate the bad guys--they were brutal and actually bad bad-guys. A lot of unexpected things happened in this book and I loved every part of it. The situations in this book are very realistic and the writing really drew me in. She really lets us experience the mindset of a blind person and what the way that they experience things. 

What I disliked: The first few chapters are a bit slow, but it really picks up after.

Conclusion: So glad I picked this book up!

4.5/5 stars
