Nicolas Sparks does it again!! This time with the book/movie ‘Safe Haven’. I have yet to decide if its ‘The Notebook’ level of awesomeness but Josh Duhamel & Julianne Hough are the stars of this valentines day love movie. So it should be decent. i can’t wait to see! yippee

hunger games

so, my goal for 2012 was to read at least 12 books this year. so far: i have read circle maker, preparing your heart for His, and for march 3 books popularly knows as the Hunger Games trilogy[hunger games, catching fire & mockingjay]. Update: I’ve surpassed my 12 books…i’m on book #13

I have never been one to join on a band wagon. I skipped the hysteria and obsession reading Harry Potter and Twilight but Hunger Games. there is something about the story and the main character and the destiny she seems made for and yet completely unaware of until consciously committing. I love what she says about her mother in book 2 Catching Fire which despite what you’re told [yes it is slower than the 1st book] might be my favorite. “I’m filled with awe, as I always am, as I watch her transform from a woman who calls me to kill a spider to a woman immune to fear.”-  Katniss Everdeen, p. 111

with all that said i have decided i don’t really care for all the songs on the hunger games soundtrack except for 1 maybe 2. so i shall create my own and here it is:

  1. just a kiss by Lady Antebellum [cover remix by Karmin]
  2. part of me by katy perry
  3. eyes open by taylor swift
  4. disarm by smashing pumpkins [cover by the civil wars]
  5. crawling back to you by DAUGHTRY
  6. This is War by 30 seconds to mars
  7. the pretenders by Foo Fighters
  8. never told you by colbie caillat

*written 3.30.2012 > this book trilogy really moved me.
