Book vs. Movie: The DUFF

My first thought after I finished reading The Duff by Kody Keplinger was “how did they manage to make this a movie?” While I enjoyed the book, it definitely seemed too racy for a teen movie. No parents would let their kids see this movie, right? No production company would be like “50 Shades of Grey but for sixteen year olds?

15 Lessons Learned Watching The Maze Runner

Last night I decided to watch The Maze Runner even though I haven’t gotten around to reading the book yet. Because I’m a rebel. Yup. That’s right. Also my husband was like “Do you want to watch The Maze Runner?” And I said yes. Having not read the book, I was going into the movie relatively uninformed except that I’ve read a description of said book and read … Continue reading 15 Lessons Learned Watching The Maze Runner

Weekend Diversions: Flying Cars, Werewolf Pop Stars, Photshopped Beauties & John Mayer Entertaining on TV

It’s a car it’s a plane, it’s… a Terrafugia? Apparently we are a lot closer to the world’s first flying car than I would have anticipated – just watch the video below for more information and see this bad-assed vehicle in action – it’s pretty great. *** Speaking of nothing related to flying cars, apparently Vanessa Hudgens really wants to be in the next Twilight … Continue reading Weekend Diversions: Flying Cars, Werewolf Pop Stars, Photshopped Beauties & John Mayer Entertaining on TV
