June Wishlist: Amazon Kindle (Summer)

With less than two weeks until it's officially Summer - here are a few books I'm dying to read in my free time! I'm a sucker for a great book that will be turned into a hollywood film.

  1. PAPER TOWNS - JOHN GREEN
     After falling in love with TFIOS, how could I not want more John Green in my life? The adapted film comes out this July and boy can I say I AM EXCITED for this one!
     
  2. THE MAZE RUNNER SERIES - JAMES DASHER
    After watching the film, I feel the need to know the entire story. It's like a more futuristic version of The Hunger Games where kids are being killed inside of a maze instead of an arena. 
     
  3. THE SELECTION SERIES - KIERA CLASS
    My best friend and I were having lunch when she suddenly started describing this book to me and I just had to add it to my reading list. Such a unique story I can't wait to read it.
     
  4. THE FIFTY SHADES OF GREY SERIES - EL JAMES
    Yes, moms have read it and it's twilight fan fiction but it's the #1 selling book in it's category! I've got to finish the entire series so I can defend the rumor of rape and be able to explain the details of Christian Grey's dark Dexter past and how he changes for Ana.
     
  5. ELEANOR & PARK - RAINBOW ROWELL
    I've heard so many great things about this book, the summary is intriguing. And I love music so why not?
     
  6. ME EARL AND THE DYING GIRL - JESSE ANDREWS
    Never heard of this book until the film trailer was released but all I can say is I'm a sucker for a sweet cancer story. It's depressing I know, but every Cancer story just connects to my heart in a weird and special unique and lovely way so it's a must read.
     
  7. DARK PLACES - GILLIAN FLYNN
    Gone Girl had the most amazing unexpected twist, I have to read more of her work in hope of another great story to mess with my mind!

May Wishlist: Hot Topic (Pop Culture)

I sure love pop culture, disney, young adult series and more disney, this is the only reason I love Hot Topic!

  1. UP! HOUSE BALLON NECKLACE
    Up is my favorite Disney Pixar film, to have a little piece of the story with me everywhere I go would be magical. One day I hope to get my Up house tattoo but until then...
     
  2. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS ROLLERCOASTER T-SHIRT
    This quote means so much to me in so many ways. It's even my text message ring for my best friend.
     
  3. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST STAINED GLASS DRESS
    Beauty and the Beast is my all time favorite princess movie. I'm not a big dress person but this strained glass art I would wear any day of the week!
     
  4. BIG BANG THEORY SOFT KITTY T-SHIRT
    If you don't know the soft kitty song, then you've never been sick like Sheldon.
     
  5. THE LITTLE MERMAID BEDDING
    Adorable, colorful and perfect for my bedroom. It's also not too girly, I can't imagine a guy complaining about sleeping in these sheets when it has her prince on them!
     
  6. THE LITTLE MERMAID WALLET
    I'll take any of these disney wallets but the little mermaid one is just so sweet with ariel looking towards her friends. Makes me feel like I'll have mermaid luck with me always.
     
  7. SNOW WHITE TATTOO TOTE
    I love tattoos and I love Snow White. What a perfect combination for me to carry around!

No I am not a fan of the young adult book (surprisingly) I saw the trailer not long ago and as a fan of Mae Whitman from Parenthood and Robbie Amell from The Tomorrow People, I had to see it for them. It's your basic terrible high school flick with an interesting plot that makes me curious to read the book, as in this story this high school has a system called "The Duff". I probably was one in high school the more I think about it and can totally relate to the character Bianca except I didn't grow up next door to a hot high school jock. So, there is the mean girls (lead by Bella Thorne inspired by Rachel McAdams), the high school teacher who the character counts on (Ken Jeong inspired by Tina Fey) and the crazy mom (Allison Janney somewhat inspired by Amy Poehler), and of course the high school heart-throb - Wesley played by Robbie Amell. From those who read the books apparently Robbie is too ugly compared to Wesley in the book but I think he's handsome so no complaints there. It's got some good scenes, some bad scenes and some real ugly scenes like Wesley teaching Bianca not to be a Duff at the mall, the fake forever 21 scene will forever haunt me. Overall, it was a fun watch and I'll go read the book. Maybe you should read the book then decide if it's worth a watch for you or the opposite of that.

Rating: ★★★☆ | Best time to see it? Netflix
