Literary Junkies (April)

Pink Heels Pink Truck

1. What are you reading right now? Tell us about it!

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. I actually just finished it last night and, wowza! It was a good one. My review will be up Thursday. 

2. Divergent, Hunger Games, or Twilight. Which do you prefer and why? (If you've never read them which do you think you'd prefer?)

In order from favorite to least favorite: Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergent. I was a huge Twilight junkie from the beginning so it holds a special place in my heart (HA). Hunger Games is awesome. Divergent was great but I hated the end. I like happy endings and I was really disappointed in the ending. I also hated the movie. It felt very low budget and the acting was terrible. Was anyone else disappointed, or was it just me?

3. TV Series Based on Books they start out very close to the book to draw in the fans but then will start to separate themselves by changing things and adding characters. What are you thoughts on this?

The only show I have ever seen that is based on books is Pretty Little Liars. I love the show but the series is very different than the books. I think they have to do that to a certain degree. For example, Ezra leaves in the 1st book. In the show, he has been a main character for what, 5 seasons now? It is because he is so popular, of course they don't want to get rid of him. 

4. You've just been recruited to help a movie studio bring your favorite book to the big screen. What's the movie and who are you choosing to play the main characters?

My favorite book (Pride and Prejudice) has already been made into a movie, so I'm just going to choose the book I just finished (The Husband's Secret) because I feel like that would be a good movie. Jennifer Anniston would definitely play Tess. Reese Witherspoon would play Cecilia. They are two of my faves so I had to go with them.

5. Going back to the above question, do you keep it word for word the same or do you use this chance to change little things you thought would make the book better?

I can't think of anything I would change. 

6. After you finish a physical copy of a book do you keep it for a reread, put it on a shelf to collect dust, donate it to Goodwill, or do you just not purchase physical copies of books?

It depends on the book. If I love it, I keep it. If it's terrible or I know I'll never read it again or loan it out, I get rid of it. If a book is really good but I don't think I'll read it again, I give it to my grandmother. We are constantly trading books.

A Guide to Filling Baby's Easter Basket

Post contains affiliate links.

I have been struggling with what to put in Hampton's Easter basket this year. He is 5 1/2 months old, so it's not like he has been begging me for the latest most popular toy. Do I fill it with things he needs like diapers, oragel, and wipes or do I fill it with fun things like teething rings, toys, books, etc.? So, I decided to do a little bit of everything. Here is what's in Hampton's Easter basket:

Happy Easter!

3 Steps to a Cleaner Fresher You

Thank you to Cottonelle for sponsoring this post. Opinions are 100% my own.

I don't know about you, but I love the feeling I get after a hot shower or bath. I feel so clean and fresh - it puts me in a better mood almost instantly. As a woman, I know and understand the importance of feeling fresh and clean throughout the day. Here are a few steps to help you feel more clean and fresh during your day:

Step 1: Start your day with a warm shower. It is the best way to wake up and get feeling clean and ready to face the day.

Step 2: Use Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper. People - especially women - shy away from talking about their bathroom habits. Why is that? I guess I'm just not shy about it. Everyone poops. That's right, I said it. I'm sorry if that offends you, but you do it too, so it shouldn't. This two-ply, tuggable, huggable, soft toilet paper goes a long way. Side note: My husband is always complaining about how much toilet paper I use. Since switching to Cottonelle Clean Care, I don't use near as much. It saves money in the long run and leaves me feeling just as clean.

Step 3: Make yourself feel even more fresh by pairing your Cottonelle Clean Care toilet paper with the Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Wipes. Seriously, these flushable bum cloths leave me feeling so refreshed. The wipes break up after flushing which makes them sewer and septic safe and they are alcohol free! These are a must have to add to your clean routine.

You can receive a $1.50 coupon to save on the Cottonelle Clean Care toilet paper or cleansing wipes. Now you and your clean bum can make like Outkast and feel "so fresh and so clean" all day long.
