Better Than The Movie: It's a Real Thing.


The fun things about this outfit:
Dress - Old Navy Sale!, Shoes - Ross, Necklace - Free

Do you ever get to that point where there are so many things on your To-Do list that you really start leaning towards the thought that none of them matter, let's just sit down and read Harry Potter?

Yep, life is feeling a little like that lately. Fortunately, I've been able to keep on task...
But let's be honest... I actually am busting my way through this Year Three book!

Yea, you read right! I'm reading the third Harry Potter book. My goal this summer was to get through 2 of them, and as a non-reader type this makes me very proud to be able to say I'm almost done with the third... And it's only July!

If you're a reader, you probably say this all the time. 
But if you're like me, a non-reader, screen time type person, you probably hear this all the time.
"The book is WAAAAAYYY better than the movie!!!"

If you are my kind of human, you hear this and scoff. 
"Who cares." 
"The movie was great." 
"Shut up, you book worm! Your making me feel unintelligent."

But over the past year (literally starting on my last birthday, July 21,2013),
I started reading... and kept it up.
It all began with a little Chronicles of Narnia that was a surprise package 
in the mail from the Cali guy I started telling you about HERE.
I'd started the series and got stalled when I couldn't find the next book.
We'd just begun talking and I never would have expected this little mailbox treasure.

I finished those quickly, and with a growing love of holding a book in my hands 
and having my eyes roll along the hills the words on printed pages were creating. 

So now, as I have officially ended the Chronicles and 
begun young Potter's journey through wizard school, I am finding myself saying....
Yep, you guessed it...
"The book is WAAAAAYYY better than the movie!!!"

I'm joining that band wagon people. Slow down a bit so I can jump on!

Anyone reading any books lately I should read next?
I'm scared to say, but I think I'm making a list.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.


  1. The Imaginarium Geographica series by James A. Owen. Even hubby is enjoying them...albeit at a slower pace than me. I think there are 7 least 6, which I have.

  2. I haven't read or seen anything to do with Harry Potter...I guess I'm way behind the times!
