The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (Movie Review)

Hey Everyone!! I know I know, the last couple of months, barely anything in posting, and now for three days in a row, there have been posts?!! Well, I actually have an entire week off from one of my jobs, and am A TINY bit ahead with my homework, because that is how I do ;), so I've actually had a little bit of extra time!  Plus, I think I am getting my groove back when it comes to reading :). Anyway, my mom and I went to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1  this afternoon!! From  IMBD I reviewed Mockingjay  back in 2011, and didn't really know what to think of the end of the series.  To this day, I'm actually really curious as to know what was going through Suzanne Collin's head as she was finishing up the series. One thing I was certain of though, before seeing the movie was how could they split a 300-something page book, where not much really happens in the first half, into TWO movies??? I mean, I get it! MONEY, MONEY! That's life, unfort

The DUFF (MOVIE!!!!!!!!)

You guys!! I completely forgot to let you know something!! So shortly after I started The Romance Bookie in 2010, I came across a book, that became my utterly favorite book ever!! It was a book that I could relate to, unbelievably, it was hilarious, and it was written by an author that has been so unbelievably inspiring for me, that I have done everything in my power to support her all of these years! Well, anyway, that book is The DUFF ! DUFF stands for the Designated Ugly Fat Friend, which for those of us always felt like the outcast in our friends' group, then this is a book you can definitely relate to! Earlier this year, Kody Keplinger, the amazing author of The DUFF , announced that The DUFF  was being made into a movie! It's that time now, where the trailer has been posted, and I'm here to share it with you guys!! it is... The DUFF  official trailer! :) YAY!! So while there seem to be some changes, which Kody has addressed HERE , it

Twilight: The Graphic Novel: Volume 2 by Stephenie Meyer (Illustrated by Young Kim)

Hey Everyone!! So again, it's been a while.  In reality, while I still absolutely love reading, in all honesty it just hasn't been my #1 priority in life.  I have two jobs, go to school twice a week for night classes, have one class online, and have been spending all the access free time I have left, with my boyfriend.  It's been a crazy and exciting last few months, and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. In reality, The Romance Bookie, will in NO MEANS be shut down, but reviews will continue to be slower and slower in going up.  I still read when I can, and once my classes end middle of next month, for the semester, I will have a couple of weeks, where I can just focus on reading whatever my heart desires, during my breaks :). But anyway, I've been itching to write a review, so I read something pretty quick this morning.  A few weeks ago, I found in a clearance bin, at Rite Aid (a pharmacy), of all places a beautiful hardcover of the second book in the
