Southern Belle Contemplates: Fifty Shades of Gray The Movie

Last week who will play Christian Gray and Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Gray was announced.  Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson.  I do not know anything about the two of them but I am kind of excited about them playing the main characters.  I think it is great they picked two unknowns and not two people who already have a star following, like Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer.  Don’t get me wrong I think they are both good actors in their own right but I just think it is going to be better having fresh faces as the leads.  Now just to know who will be playing Gideon and Eva.  I can’t wait for the movie to come out now.  I want to see how Hunnam and Johnson do portraying Christian and Anastasia.

Southern Belle Contemplates Monday (On Tuesday): 10 Random Things From My Southern Belle Brain

Ten Random Things I have been thinking about and thought I would share.

  1. I think Hallmark Channel or someone else should make movies out of the “Yada Yada Prayer Group”.  I would love to see my favorite characters come to live on the screen.
  2. Part of me thinks it would be cool if they did a “Gone With The Wind” movie re-make.
  3. I think it would interesting if they did a “The Nanny” reunion movie.
  4. While I liked that the new “90210” ended with Liam and Annie getting engaged, I would have liked it better if the show ended with them getting married.
  5. The Pioneer Woman is probably my favorite celebrity cook and probably the one I can relate to the most.
  6. I think I might write a book, or at least try.
  7. I would love to see Morgan and Garcia end up together on “Criminal Minds”
  8. I really don’t think “Scarlett: The Sequel to Gone With The Wind” is what Margaret Mitchell would have had in mind if she was going to write a sequel.  The Scarlett in there was not the Scarlett from the original.
  9. On “Revenge” I don’t really think Declan is dead.
  10. I can’t wait to hear who is going to play Christian Gray and Gideon Cross in the movies for “Fifty Shades of Gray” and “Bared To You”.  I think Colin Egglesfield could pull off one of them.

Southern Belle Reads Friday (On Saturday): Crossfire Book Three

This week I am reading Book Three in the Crossfire Series and I am almost done with it.  I am still liking it.  There are times where I really don’t like Gideon and then he does something and I change my mind all over again.  I have not yet decided if I like this series better than Fifty Shades or if I like Fifty Shades better than this one.  It is still too early to tell, especially when I hear there is going to be four books total in this series, time will only tell.

Southern Belle Reads Friday (On Tuesday): Crossfire

This week I finished book two in the Crossfire Series.  Wow, these are totally different from Fifty Shades of Gray!  Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed reading both series so far.  And they both are great in their own way.  Book One of Fifty was almost a little too much for me but Books Two and Three were perfect and my favorites.  The Crossfire Series seems to be pretty much even throughout the series, what you get in book one continues in book two and I would assume book three as well.  Don’t get me wrong I like that.  I will keep you posted after I finish book three.

Southern Belle Reads Friday: The Next “Fifty Shades”?

I will admit I read “Fifty Shades of Gray” and I think I might have found the book to top even it.  The book I am talking about is “Bared to You” by Sylvia Day.  WOW is all I can say about this book.  In my opinion it puts “Fifty Shades” to shame.  This book is also the first of three in a series so maybe book two is totally different than book one but I don’t know just yet.  I liked book two and three best of “Fifty” because they were so much different then book one.  Maybe this series will be the same way.  Check back, I will keep you posted.
