One Day ...

The weather here this weekend was in one word dreadful, we simply had Winter in May for a full two days and there seems to be no sign of it stopping. So on Sunday afternoon I curled up with my Ipad and spent some time on Apple Movie Trailers, its my secret love! One of my best friends got me on to it in school and every couple of weeks I go on and watch all the new trailers of films that will coming out in the next couple of months and I can easily spend a good hour watching them.

So on Sunday I gave a slight burst of delight when I came across a film traier of one of my favourite books, 'One Day.' I read this book by David Nicholls at the start of the year after a friend recommended it an the guy in my local bookstore persuaded me to get it an I loved it instantly.

15th July 1988,Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess) meet for the first time on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways. So where will they be on this one day next year? And the year after that? And every year that follows? Twenty years, two people, One Day.

It's released the weekend of my birthday and I cant wait I hope that it lives up to my expectations. Has one of your books been made to a film and did it live up to it or not? X

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I do the same thing every few weeks, watch all the trailers there (well pretty much). Saw that trailer the other day and now really looking forward to the movie. Your latest follower. anastasia at Decor is like butter. xo

We had about one week of nice weather and now it's cold and rainy again here too. =(

A lot of the books I love have been made into movies, but very few of them are ever as good as the books. The only one I can think of is Alice in Wonderland. I much prefer the movie (the old Disney ones) to the book. I was so excited when the new one came out!
