Thanks Jess @ Gone with the Words! <3

My goodness, I have been soo busy this week, I apologize if I wasn't able to make my rounds around all of the blogs! As you can see, I got a lot of pretties! Much thanks to Anna Banks, Jess @ Gone with the Words, and Jessica @ A GREAT Read! You all made my week a little brighter! :)

Hubs and I saw Big Hero 6 last night, and boy, I haven't been in a theatre that crowded (and loud) in a long time! As for the movie, I enjoyed it, I thought it was cute, but hubs and I had a "fight" because I said I liked Frozen better than Big Hero 6. I thought that the characterization was lacking, and it really felt like a set up movie. The only focus is Hiro and his relationship with Baymax, the other four kind of just play second fiddle to Hiro's emotional development. Matt, on the other hand, LOVED IT. Like vehemently. o.O I think it's because he's a major Marvel fan. I like Marvel movies, but I don't really feel the urge to read any of the graphic novels. I think because I'm not a big superhero fan. I mean my favorite super hero is Batman, and he's basically the anti-super hero. And when it comes to graphic novels, I enjoy more indie titles like Sandman, Hack Slash, Revival, Alice and Wonderland and whatnot. 

Chicago is supposed to experience another polar vortex starting on Tuesday. This does not bode well for our winter. I don't know if you all know, but last year, Chicago hit -64 F because of the polar vortex, and if we're getting hit this early.....I don't think I can leave my house until March! Haha. 

Well I hope to interact more with you all this week, and I hope everyone had a lovely week at YALLFEST! <3 



  1. I want to see Hero 6 so badly!! I'm a huge Marvel fan...I'm always defending it, and my sister is always picking apart the plot holes or whatnot. lol x) BUT IT'S MARVEL. C'MON.
    Omg, I really want to read The Body Electric! I didn't have such a good time with Atlantia, but the world-building was pretty darn fantastic. SQUEE THE GIRL FROM THE WELL IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITES FOR THIS YEAR.
    Thanks for stopping by @ Notebook Sisters!

    1. If you're a big Marvel fan then I think you'll really like it Cait. Remember, stay until the end! :)

  2. Jeebus, Chicago sounds like it's absolutely freezing! Keep safe and warm, Amber! (I'm kind of jealous of your weather though because it is BOILING in aus) ENJOY The Body Electric. I had a great time with that one. Hopefully it works out for you as well. Have a good upcoming week! x

    1. Chicago is a fab city,but the weather is unforgiving! Let's switch cities for a week Jess (can you finish my research proposal while we're at it?)

      I like read 200 pages of The Body Electric in a day, it's really easy to read and get caught up in. I"ll have to bump Across the Universe up on my TBR!

  3. Looking forward to reviews. I like the Elite. <3

    1. I thought The Selection was cute, I already know who she's going to end up with, but it looks like sweet series! :)
