Half-Blood Prince-- The Movie!

So I saw this on Wednesday, and I would love to know what you guys think of it! Did you read the book? Did you read the book recently? What did you think of the adaptation? Did you like the ending? Finally, taking all things into consideration, if you were to assign a letter grade, what would you give it?

Discuss! I'll jump in soon.

Summer, continued!

Hi everyone!
I know I haven't posted in a while; sorry about that. Things have been a little crazy for me the last few weeks, but I think I've turned a corner and I can finally start enjoying summertime again! Lessee... I'm reading Savvy right now, which won the Newbery this year (rare that fantasy books win Newberys, so of course I have to give this one a go!), and did I talk about Hunger Games in my last comment? I can't remember... but allow me to say, I thought it was EXCELLENT. I read it in one travel day-- could not put it down, seriously! Great character development and a good idea for a story. I recommend it highly.

Bookies, about the movie-- I had some thoughts while I was out of town. Why don't we have our movie day sometime in the couple of weeks before school starts? I am assuming everyone will be rolling back into town by then and it will help us all ease into school mode. Does that sound good? The movie is out; I've put it in my Netflix queue, so we'll be ready to go. If this is acceptable to all of you, we'll figure out a day to meet up at the school, I'll get it lined up so we can have it going on the big screen in the Rattlers Den, and we can do popcorn and whatnot. What say all of you?

And just in case you're NOT in book club but you ARE reading this blog... feel free to join us on this movie day to watch Inkheart! I say the more the merrier. :)

Woohoo Summer!!
