SOBO

Y'all know I read a lot, but one author that I always rush to the bookstore and grab her books the day they come out, is Emily Giffin. A couple of times, I've even gone to her book signings...


Just a side note here, she has lived my dream life: Went to law school, was a lawyer, quit being a lawyer, moved to London to write, became successful writer and now lives back in the USA where her books are being made into movies and she is schmoozing with celebrities like Kate Hudson, Collin Egglesfield and John Krasinski just to name a few.

I always really like her books, but some I really love. I LOVED the "something" series...

Something Borrowed

Something Blue
Something Borrowed has been made into a movie, which comes out on May 6th, and I couldn't be more excited about it.  I often hold off the excitement about a favorite book being made into a film, but after hearing Emily talk about it at her book signing and reading her tweets about it, I'm taking the risk and allowing myself to be excited.  She has promised that though there are a few changes, it is fairly true to the book.  So this is a film that I'm looking forward to with much of the same anticipation that I held for the Sex and the City movie releases. 

It's getting closer to the release date, so we are finally getting some good teasers.  The poster came out a few weeks ago...

and the trailer finally came out this week!

















If you haven't read SOBO, I'd recommend doing so immediately, so that you'll be ready to rush out to the theatre with me to see it opening day (okay, I'll cut you some slack, or opening weekend).  The more people that go see it opening weekend, the quicker Something Blue gets to filming!

I need to order the books- but still unlikely that I'll make it to the movie anytime soon. I can't seem to get to anything that isn't animated. :(
