Truly excitable “fictional” evidence that man can change–because of a woman

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

“All this gladness in life, all honest pride in doing my work in the world, all this keen sense of being, I owe to her!” And it doubles the gladness, it makes the pride glow, it sharpens the sense of existence till I hardly know if it is pain or pleasure, to think that I owe it to one – nay, you must, you shall hear” – said he, stepping forwards with stern determination – “to one whom I love, as I do not believe man ever loved woman before.”


Give this book a chance if you love Jane Austen and want an adventure with it. It is truly one of my favorites read in my later years.

World Advice to men before you fall in love!

Austen advice for life to those who have truly loved and been loved

“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you.”

Persuasion by Austen

Swoon worthy book quote advice for life


“You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.” -Gone With the Wind


This is for the ladies, and advice to be taken by the men. Trust me, it works. My man believes in this and that was before I learned of Mr. Butler. P.S. This book to movie was made way, way before my time but my mother drools at the sight of him. It’s the moves he makes that count.




Oh! and today is my birthday. So this post is in honor of my wonderful mom!

Scorch Trials–Book to Movie–Zombies!

Alright!  To me the book series seems adventurous.  The storyline is great with a few dead spots in between that as a girl were catered to the guy readers, but I loved the themes behind it and the intricate plot ( the big idea behind the whole–for which I’m not spoiling).  The reader is completely entranced in book three trying to figure out how America got in this mess and what they are doing to get out.

Now the movie.  Fabulous “scary movie”.  I say this because it seems the book series is more of an adventure and the movie more a horror flick with a better plot twist than others.  I absolutely love both and will read and watch again if not to pick apart why I like both for different reasons.

Sum it up—

Book- adventurous, Dystopian earth trying to save itself!

Movie-scary horror with a better plot twist than an other !

Enjoy both.
