Reese Update

 
(Via)





So I watched The Man in the Moon over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The movie is a sweet and sad story about a girls coming of age. It is set in the '50's (maybe) and is very engaging story. Reese Witherspoon plays 14 year old Danny who falls in love with the son of an old friend of her parents. 

This was one of her first movies and she does a great job. Her southern heritage shines through in her true accent (think Sweet Home Alabama) and she seems sweet and innocent. I don't want to ruin the movie even if it is about 20 years old, so check it out! It is rated PG-13 but I think it more appropriate for a slightly older audience. 

It also stars Sam Waterston (think Law and Order) and Jason London.

  1. I've seen quite a few of Reese's movies - love Sweet Home Alabama - but have not seen this one. Wasn't she in one recently that was set in a circus? I thought it looked good but never got around to seeing it.

    My husband and son are gone so I've been trying to squeeze in some dvd's that I know they won't watch :). YaYa Sisterhood, etc. Love a good chick flick!!

  2. The circus on is "Water for Elephants." I haven't seen it yet either, I want to read the book first!

    I always watch chick flicks and animated movies when my husband isn't home!

  3. I think I saw this on TV once... does something happen with a tractor? If it's the movie I'm thinking of, it is good!

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.
