Friday Five and Beach Reads Giveaway (8)


So I thought it might be fun this summer to try writing a more personal post every Friday highlighting some things going on in my life that aren't necessarily book related.  Let me know what you think!

1.  Ben Affleck and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge - Did you guys see Ben Affeck's ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video? Could Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner be any cuter? Probably not. How adorable is this video? And the laughing of their kids in the background is priceless.

2.  Paying it Forward - With so much depressing news in the world right now, this article about people paying it forward at a Starbucks in Florida put a smile on my face.




3.  Outlander series - Are you guys hooked on the TV show yet? What is even more mind-blowing to me is the fact that the book, over twenty years old, is now back on the New York Times Bestseller List.  Incredible! Diana Gabaldon must be in a state of disbelief.




4.  YA Books on the Big Screen - There are so many awesome books being made into movies: The Giver, If I Stay, The Fault in Our StarsMaze Runner, etc.  I also have had my eye on Lauren Kate's Fallen, which will be in theaters in 2015. Have you guys read the book? What do you think of the casting? I hope it doesn't disappoint much like Vampire Academy did.




5.  Beach Reads Giveaway- I am in complete denial that my favorite season is coming to a close soon. So, I am hosting a beach reads giveaway! I have a few gently used novels that need a good home. The books include a hardback copy of Nantucket Sisters by Nancy Thayer, a paperback of Island Girls by Nancy Thayer, a hardback of Wallflower in Bloom by Claire Cook, and a paperback copy of Sweet Salt Air by Barbara Delinsky.  There will be two winners - each winner gets to pick two books and the giveaway is open to US only.  The deadline is September 1 and please refer to my giveaway rules.
