Movie Review/Book Review!

Over the weekend the hubs and I saw two movies. First up, World War Z. 
I'll come right out and say all I kept thinking about was how this movie was pretty much exactly like Will Smith's  "I Am Legend." I Am Legend had me in tears this movie, eh not even close. Skip it and wait for redbox if you are interested in seeing it. Both husband and I felt the ending was very abrupt, and didn't really give closure. 


Next up, "White House Down."


This movie was really good! Very funny and Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum are a great duo! I kept thinking of Tatum as a younger version of Bruce Willis in Die Hard, running around in a dirty wife beater with guns everywhere. I'd recommend seeing this one in the theater!

I think it's safe to say that I am really officially hooked on Kristin Hannah's writing. She is a terrific author and I just finished "Firefly Lane" a few nights ago. This book rocked because it spanned the course of three decades. From the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s to present day. It reminded me of the movie Beaches with Bette Milder and Barbara Hershey. If you've seen the movie or read this book then you know what I am talking about! 

I am currently reading the sequel to this, so I'll keep y'all posted!


  1. oh good i was about to download Firefly Line as my next book to read, now i will have to!

  2. If you like Kristin Hannah you need to read HOMEFRONT! OH em gee sooo good....so good

  3. I was thinking about whether I should go see World War Z or wait until it comes to the Redbox. Well now I got my answer!

  4. I really want to see White House Down! It looks really good!

  5. I love that book as well. I haven't read any of her others so perhaps I will give them a shot!


  6. Thanks for the review on World War Z. I thought it kept looking a little like the Will Smith movie.

  7. I just started this book. I am so glad you liked it!

  8. I just finished Firefly Lane. So good and so happy/sad. Definitely cried. Great recommendation!

  9. I loved Firefly Lane, looking forward to reading the 2nd one, can't wait to hear what you think of it!
