Did You Hear That?

No worries, that was just me, squealing like a fangirl and dancin' around the laundry piles in my room. I've been on pins and needles waiting for Water for Elephants to get a family friendly rating so I could finally share and discuss.

Ok, first a confession is in order, this book was not on my radar at all until this lovely was cast....

                  VMan- Robert Pattinson

Then all of a sudden I decided I was interested in a Depression-era circus romp. It has been almost a year since I read the book, so I'm sure I've forgot some important bits, and I will admit, there were times in my reading I didn't love the book. It took some, um..., 'coarse' turns. But ultimately, I loved Jacob, and not just because I was picturing Robert Pattinson. I loved the completeness of this novel. So many times when I read a book, I want to know what happened next, the dual perspectives of ninety year old Jacob and college age Jacob satisfied my need to know. There was also a bit of a mystery through the book that added another layer of interest. Finally, some might consider this a spoiler, so consider yourself warned, but I like order, symmetry and tidy endings and while this book definitely had it's dark moments, this book ended with me in happy tears, completely satisfied.

Then came the trailers.

I love the creepy carnival music in this next trailer.

So, pretty much you'll find me at a theater next weekend. Will I see any of you there?
