11 Facts About Me:
1. The next two movies I plan on seeing in theaters are Captain America: Civil War and X-Men: Apocalypse.
2. I'm looking forward to seeing how Spider-Man is introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
3. I'm looking forward to the cool visual stunts Ant-Man will get to do - I mean, this part from the trailer where he's riding Hawkeye's arrow is pretty cool!
4. The trailer for the movie adaptation of Stephen King's Cell starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson was released yesterday and I can't wait to see how it turns out since I enjoyed the novel.
5. The casting for Cell makes me think of one of my favorite underrated Stephen King adaptations, 1408. John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson both were in it and each gave great performances.
6. When it comes to Stephen King adaptations, I plan on starting 11.22.63 very soon. I've heard a some good things about the tv adaptation. The source material is one of my favorites of his recent releases.
7. On a completely different note, I saw a red squirrel in the yard today. This is only interesting because I almost never see squirrels on the ground in my area.
8. I took a super cute picture of my cat, Finn, on Saturday evening. Look how cute he is! He likes staring at the facet in the tub in hopes that it will drip. Sometimes he will even push the button with his paw to try to make it drip. On the occasion that it does drip, or a drip begins to form, he'll try to lap it up or let it drip on his head.
9. I took a short walk earlier this evening and picked some flowers - I found blue phlox, yellow buttercup, common blue violets, trillium, and (my favorite) Dutchman's breeches.
10. I received surprising book mail on Saturday: my pre-order of The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater arrived! 3 days before its official release!
11. I received some more book mail today! I took advantage of the Barnes and Noble Teens 3 for $30 special. I'm so excited to get to Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine, The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig, and Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton. I'll talk more about my recent book mail in an upcoming book haul post.
