What's happenin' in the bloggin' world

Happy Saturday!!!!

Saw Eat, Pray, Love lost night... my review?

Awesome!! It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. I think you should read the book first, not because you need it to see the movie but because it will mean so much more. Definitely worth seeing!!!

Okay so what's happening on the blogosphere? Lot's of things!!!

Up first:

This week on my blog I'll be doing a segment our very own blogger E. Elle over at The Writer's Funhouse created titled In Their Own Words. My characters will share their thoughts, fears, problems and more M-W!!!

Ack, they're not supposed to release movies until I've read the books. And look...there's the book right there within arm's reach but still woefully unread. Sigh. I'm either going to watch the movie on DVD or break my must-read-book-first rule.

decisions, decisions.

Kimberly Franklin said...

I really want to see that movie! I'm so gald you liked it, and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Al said...

Great links, thanks for passing them on!

Theresa Milstein said...

I'm glad you liked the movie. I've heard mixed reviews, and my husband said he'd heard the original movie with subtitles was even better. We haven't seen it yet, but my husband loved the books.

Thanks for the links.

Amy Saia said...

I want to read the book first, so the movie will wait i guess. Better not wait too long, haha! Love your pic on the right : )

Shelley Sly said...

Looking forward to your blog fest, and can't wait to see your In Their Words posts!

Kelly Dexter said...

Thanks so much for the links!

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the movie, I hope to see it soon :-)

Andrea Allison said...

Happy Saturday! Thanks so much for the awesome links. Thought about seeing Eat Pray Love but perhaps I'll read the book first.

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

I so have to read that book. I've been meaning to for so long. I have a contest coming up. Will be announcing it on Wednesday. I'm so excited, the prizes are to DIE for!

Susan Fields said...

Thanks for all the links, Jen - I'm off to check them out! And I can't wait for the blogfest!

The Words Crafter said...

Glad you liked the movie, haven't made up my mind whether to see it or wait for the DVD...thanks for the links, btw. Hope you're having a great weekend.

Lynn said...

Glad you enjoyed Eat, Pray, and Love. I like Julia Roberts but have a love/hate relationship with Gilbert's book. So, not sure yet about the movie; but the guys are so yummy! That may balance it out for me!

Angela M. said...

Ooooh, I knew I should have read that book when I had the chance! Maybe I can still find it around here somewhere. I like to read the books before their movie counterparts come out. Thanks for the recommend!

Jemi Fraser said...

Sounds like fun! Can't wait :)

Thanks for the links!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Awesome links, Jen! Thanks for sharing. I'd like to see that movie, too. But I have a feeling it'll end up being a DVD watch for us. *sigh*

I'm looking forward to seeing "Eat Pray Love." I bought the book but I'm only like 15 pages in. I can't seem to get into it... maybe I just need to keep reading?

Lori W. said...

I can't remember how I even found your blog, but I love the look of it! Seriously jealous now. Your WIP section is really cool. Off to check out some of the contests mentioned in your sidebar. Thanks!
