Baby it's cold outside!!

When you have a weekend like this.....It's best just to stay indoors and hunker down. We had a cold and bitter weekend, perfect for reading books and watching movies

First up was Contagion. I loved this movie and I love that it was an all star cast. Trust me if you are the slightest bit of a germaphobe you should NOT watch this movie. I love how the entire movie comes full circle the last minute. Definitely put this in your movie que...
Sunday afternoon I watched Blue Valentine. A really dark and depressing movie about lost love and lost dreams, but nonetheless really good. The movie itself is not a real pick me up, but Ryan Gosling sure is...

A friend gave me this book to read while I was on vacation last month, and I can honestly say this is one of the few books I have read in a long time that I could not put down. This is the story of 2 girls that are orphaned from the tsunami of 2005 and how they are kidnapped for human trafficking. I know the book itself is fiction, but using girls as sex slaves and drug mules unfortunately is a horrific reality...

This book is waiting patiently for me on my nightstand...I keep hearing buzz about "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" so I decided to go ahead and order it. It arrived the other day and I cannot wait to start reading. Go and watch the video clip here and let me know what you think, kind of creepy!!


  1. I must look out for these! Thanks for sharing:)

  2. I want to see Blue Valentine! I've heard that it's a little deep, but I love, love, love Ryan Gosling, so I have to see it! It sounds like you had a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

  3. I would love to have a cold, snowy weekend like that!! Slightly jealous!

  4. I always love new book recommendations! I havent heard of either but adding them to my book list. Last movie I watched ( besides food Inc). Was crazy stupid love. So cute if you havent seen it!
