Stéphanie is a 25 year old Optometrist living in a small community in Northern Ontario and even if she liked living in Montreal for 5 years, she believes the small town life is more for her. Ever since she was little she loved books and stories. It's no surprise that today, you'll always find her with a book within arm's reach.

    1. I liked it. I thought it stayed close enough to the book. There are some differences, but nothing too major.

    2. I really liked it too. Maybe not as good as the books, but close. They took some liberties since the book was written 1st point of view yet the movies wasn't necessarily first point of view.

  18. *SQUEEE!* All those shiny, pretty new covers! xD I am so excited for Silver. Mythology and swoony steamy hot romance is always a must-read for me. Innocent Darkness was just okay for me, but I hope you like it more. :)

    1. It's intriguing isn't it? I think this Canadian cover is a lot nicer than the american one... Or whichever the amazon link send you to. I think it will be a nice change from my usual paranormal reads!

  27. I have a 9 year old daughter, and my husband and I took her to see The Hunger Games in the theater. She's read all of the books after I suggested them to her. :) Then, we bought the movie and all watched it together. I loved it even more the second time around than I did the first, lol! I can't help but totally enjoy my daughter swooning over the books and the movie, lol. She's Team Peeta. My 2 year old son even goes around saying he wants to watch The Hunger Games. :)

    Awesome haul!! :D
