  1. Haha, I'm not a huge fan of the HP movie series either 😛 But I still watch them because anything harry potter related I need to be apart of. But I really did like the Outsiders book and move (book more though). The secret LIfe of Bees movie wasn't bad either, is the book any good?

    • Sorry! I kept forgetting to reply!

      The Secret Life of Bees is a fantastic book. Absolute masterpiece, 5/5 stuff. 😀 It'll make you cry and laugh and love. I definitely recommend it.

      Actually, it was just after I finished the 7th HP book (I read it without nearly any sleep within about 24 hours) when my mom brought BEES home to me. Someone at her work had recommended it, and she figured I needed a book to take my mind off the end of Harry Potter (I'd called her in the middle of the day, crying)! Lol. ;D

  2. I you already haven't you should do Secret life of Bees for bookclub! I read it and really liked it! I watched a little of the movie and thought it was also very fine.
