Today is the day I start my journey of rereading Gone With the Wind. The first time I read the book was the winter after I graduated college. I think it took me two months to read it cover to cover. But I was a fan long before that. I was a has cGone With the Wind goner from the first time I saw Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) standing at the bottom of the Twelve Oaks stairs the day of the barbeque. In some ways I think my love of Rhett Butler is a reason why I am still single. He has given me a false reality. I’m looking for a man with the perfect mix of pure southern gentleman and bad boy, just like Rhett. Thank you for coming on my journey with me. It might get a little bumpy along the way but it will be fun.
I am about to admit to something I thought I’d never say, I found a movie I liked better than the book. And to top it off it was one of those Hallmark movies. The book was not horrible but in this case I do feel the little changes that were made for the movie really helped enhance the story. Considering usually stuff from the book usually has to be cut for the movie.
Last Friday Passionflix started streaming their newest book turned movie, After Burn/After Shock by Sylvia Day. I’ll start with the book, it was okay. I like the Crossfire Series more but this is actaully two novellas in one book. So they are not as in depth, which I prefere but limited space means limited information. I would have preferred more of Gia and Jax’s backstory. On to the movie. They did a great job following the book and hitting some of the major points. I love that Passionflix is turning books into movies, this being the second, and I can’t wait for more. I think I would have to say Hollywood Dirt was better but then again maybe that was just me liking that book better.
