The Avengers Review Preview

So I don't exactly have time right this minute to write up a full review, but I got a chance to see The Avengers early and I'll tell you it was GREAT! A definite 5/5 for me. I will mention that going into the movie my favorite of the Marvel-film characters was Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron man. But coming out of the movie it was Mark Ruffalo's Hulk. Initially I was a bit skeptical when he first got on scene because they kept talking about the Hulk as "the other guy" and his mannerisms and personality differed more from Norton's portrayal than I had anticipated. It just felt a little off to me. However, once the film got rolling and the Hulk comes out he just seemed to steal the show. All the nitpicky stuff I had logged into my mind just vanished. Ruffalo's Hulk had so much humor and so many scene-stealing moments that it made you want to beg Marvel to do another Hulk movie, with Ruffalo starring. And the "Puny god" scene was too awesome. Your theater will love it. And the uncut scene at the end moving from character to character reminded me a lot of when Spielberg did that in Tintin (one of my favorite moments of that movie). It was so awesome. All in all, I can't wait to get to see this movie again. I highly recommend you guys find the time to check it out this weekend. I don't see how you could wind up disappointed. So until next time...

Monthly Giveaway!

Alright, so I haven't been getting many commenters or visitors lately.  That makes since, though, since I've been so busy with school that I haven't been able to post near as much as I'd like to.  And who wants to visit a boring blog that doesn't consistently update and keep it real?  Haha, I'm actually taking a brief break in between studying for finals to set up this post.  Starting sometime next week I'll be able to put more time into the blog when school is out the way for the summer.

So all that aside, guess what.  It's time for my second book giveaway contest!

This one is going to be a  3 book giveaway with 2 winners!  The 1st name drawn will get their choice of the books and the 2nd name drawn will get to choose out of the remaining 2.  I'm going to rehash 2 books from the previous giveaway and add a new one to the bunch (like I had mentioned previously).  They'll be: Delirium by Lauren Oliver, Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, and Fracture by Megan Miranda Fracture is the new addition and is actually an ARC copy and looks like this:
I enjoyed all of these books and I have no doubt that you guys will too.
