Today is Friday! YAY! Even though Monday was a holiday for us this week felt like it dragged on and on. I am counting down the hours to 4:00 PM this afternoon, which is the start of the weekend for me.
Weekend Plans. Aubrey and I are planning to see The Duff the movie on Saturday! I was apprehensive the first time I saw the trailer because they changed the plot a lot. The Duff is one of my all-time favorite contemporary YA novels and I still reread my favorite parts once or twice a year. I was hoping for a faithful adaptation instead of the loose one the trailer hints at. But in the last few weeks as they did the marketing and the reviews from critics start to pour in, I got more and more excited. The reviews are really positive and, while it did not stick close to the book's original plot, it still seems like a movie I will enjoy.
The other one is a new adult called Rebound by Noelle August (the pen name for a writing that consists of Veronica Rossi, who wrote the Under the Never Sky series, and Lorin Oberweger). It's the companion to Boomerang, which I enjoyed quite a bit (my review) and it features characters we already met in Boomerang.
Giveaway. I reviewed Maya Banks's latest release In His Keeping about two weeks ago (my review, in case you miss it) and I like it. Well, Maya's publicist has a signed copy of In His Keeping and she was nice enough to let me host a giveaway.
