Weekend Movie and Book Reviews

This weekend was a lazy weekend which was exactly what I needed after running around last weekend for Prom. (Which btw I know I still need to post pictures and I will get on that soon, I promise).

I watched two movies on dvd that I got from the Redbox (which very well may be one of the greatest inventions of all time).

The Resident was a thriller and it was actually pretty good. Plus it had this hottie in it...

I also watched No Strings Attached which I had been wanting to see. It was okay. Nothing great and the language was pretty vulgar. Ashton Kutcher is always really funny though so it was worth the $1 that I paid.

Sunday I went to the movies and saw BridesMaids. It was really funny but once again the language was horrible! I had wanted to see Something Borrowed and waited till the last minute to decide between the two. I wish now I would have seen Something Borrowed.

Also, I finished my first book on my new Nook. I read Here, Home, Hope and enjoyed it. I love my Nook! It does great with reading outside and I honestly feel like I read faster on it then I do a regular book. I have already purchased my next book The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain which ya'll know is one of my favorite authors.

I recommend adding Here, Home, Hope to your summer reading list. It's actually a pretty short book and was a fast and easy read.

The Red Box is certainly the greatest invention ever, well maybe second behind the brownie = ) Even if the movie is only so-so, it doesn't matter because it was a $1! Thanks for the reviews. I'm going to have to head to the Red Box this weekend.

No Strings Attached was a little vulgar - especially when watching with your mom! eek!

I'm glad you like your Nook. I love reading with mine! I do think it has encouraged me to read more and it's easier to carry in my purse than a normal book!
