Book Haul (#40)


Since it's the holidays, I have just been chilling at home, watching random movies and TV shows consisting of: Great Expectations (BBC TV version with DOUGLAS BOOTH! YUM :D), Big Time Rush (Come on, these guys are funny) and all the Harry Potters! 

But guess what I went to see yesterday? The Host! Despite all the mixed reviews on it, I decided to go and see it with my friends. I wanted to see it, but I also wanted a glimpse of the Romeo and Juliet trailer since the producers are not releasing on the web for a while. DAMN! IT WAS AMAZING! :O Douglas Booth is playing Romeo and Hailee Steinfield is playing Juliet. Douglas is gorgeous! And getting a look at him playing Romeo... Wowza.
The movie will be out in October and until then... I will wait in agony because I have so much love for Douglas. *_* 
Oh, and I thought that The Host was pretty good, too. I hope they'll be another movie.

This week I've received/bough/borrowed:
