Okay, ladies, it's time for our ginormous blockbuster announcement!!!
I wanted to make sure we got everything ironed out and all the "i's" dotted and "t's" crossed so I could roll out the red carpet on our summer reading.
We have decided to go with particular themes in choosing our books just to shake things up a bit!
Our summer theme is Blockbuster Movie Summer Reading Fun!!
First, I'll tell you the July pick and how to follow along with the bookclub for that month. Then I will explain the Blockbuster Movie tie-in to the book and how that will work with our August pick. 'Kay?
The book for July is....drumroll please...
We are linking up with our favorite Twi-fans, Trixie and Tess, to read and join in the discussion for this book.
I know he looks different, but trust me, it's the same dude.
dude!! I just thought of something else...the guy plays edward in twilight...and jacob in WFE! hello, if you read twilight, you know what i'm talking about...edward/jacob?! okay. i'll stop now.
Are you following so far?
This is where we make the next step in our breadcrumb trail that leads to our Blockbuster Movie Summer Reading Fun. (BMSRF from here on out because I'm tired of typing all of that out.)
One Blockbuster that is coming out very soon is Eclipse, a Twilight Saga movie.
(don't worry, we aren't making you go watch it, but really, why wouldn't you want to see all that hotness?? Jacob....mmm....Edward...mmm...somebody trying to kill Bella...oh yeah, that's the best part.)
The Twilight Saga was written by none other than Stephenie Meyer. Since we're sort of on this Twilight theme here...why not make our August pick a book by Ms. Meyer? We figure some of you avid book
Not only is this book by the author of Twilight (which has edward in it; played by rob pattinson. rob pattinson is also in WFE; hence our july pick.) but this book is also going to be a movie!!
And last, but not least, Jessica and MiMi will be traveling to Forks, Washington in September for Stephenie Meyer Day!!
Actually. Hmm. Does that have anything to do with this book or anything...? Well. Yes. I'm gonna say yes. In a roundabout, follow the breadcrumbs and don't fall into the quicksand that is my brain, way.
And that, ladies, is our announcement!
Summer is for Blockbusters and for reading, so why not combine the two?
July's pick is Water For Elephants, linked up with T&T.
August's pick is The Host, by Stephenie Meyer.
What do you all think? Good? Bad? Ugly?
