  5. After watching the trailer for The 100, I'm now super interested in the book. :)

    Loved all of the grown up versions of cartoon characters, especially the Rugrats crew. I feel like they hit Chuckie spot on.I'm interested to see hoe The Maze Runner movie turns out. I really enjoyed the whole series (book 2 was my favorite) and I really like Dylan O'Brien on Teen Wolf (although he is the comic relief character on that show, so seeing him more serious will be interesting). Looking forward to Austenland as well. I love cheesy romantic comedies. :)

  6. I've added The Maze Runner to my list of to-reads. I hope to get around to it before the movie comes out, but no promises. ;)

    And cheesy romantic comedies are the best! <3
