Off to July!

I'm having a difficult time wrapping my head around the fact that June has come and gone.  For me, it was a great reading month.  I got through eleven books this last month, and am still going strong! 

So, I know that right now everyone is raving about the newest Harry Potter trailer, and I will admit to watching it several times.  I've also seen lots of discussions about the release of Eclipse, which came out yesterday.  In fact, we're off to go see it this afternoon, so we'll see how good it really is!  I have to say though, that I was also REALLY excited to see the trailer for Pillars of the Earth, which comes out on Starz! at the end of July.  I don't have Starz!, but will be praying that the miniseries comes out on DVD as quickly as possible.  If you'll remember, Pillars of the Earth was one of my favorite reads of last year.  If you haven't yet read it, I really do recommend it as one of those books that takes a major commitment, but is well worth your time!

As I anticipate the film adaptation of yet another great book, I thought I'd share the trailer!

Are there any books coming to film that you are anxiously awaiting?


  1. That looks awesome! Too bad I don't have Starz.

  2. re: Pillars of the Earth... Oh, good! That means I don't have to read the book. ;)

  3. Suey--I know!!! Me too. I so loved this book that I can't wait to see what they do with the mini-series, although I'm also nervous about what they might exaggerate. I hope it's good though. They sure have a great cast!

    Heidenkind--No! You should read this one. It was such a great read!

  4. Wow, that looks good. I haven't read the book yet. I don't have Starz either so perhaps that will buy me enough time to make it though a Follett novel eventually!
