The Lovely Bones

Josh, Tara and I went to see this movie today.


I love the book and read it again last weekend to get ready for the movie because it had been a few years since I had read it.  The book is so heartbreaking and tragically sad.  The movie is, too.  They did a very good job with it.  They did leave a few of my favorite parts of the book out of the movie but I really liked it.  Tara and I both had a headache afterwards from quietly crying through the movie.  If you haven't read the book, I totally recommend it.  It's one of my favorites.
We had a lazy weekend.  Josh has been sick so he didn't work this weekend until tonight.  Now it's time to get ready for the upcoming week and Josh's birthday on Thursday!

I saw this book in the store while on my happy scamper through boarders the other day. I'm going to go back and get it next week!

I'm for sure going to go get the book! Now I want to read it before I go see the movie! It sounds good from what you and Tara were saying at lunch today! Now I'm curious and can't wait to read it!

I can't wait to see the movie! I didn't know it was a book, I'll have to give it a go one of these weeks. On a side note I get headaches when I cry too, it just adds insult to injury!

I've been wanting to see this, but haven't read the book. Would you recommend reading the book first?
