The Start of the Week

I’m sorry I’ve been a little bit late posting everything at the moment but I have some exciting news which I will tell you all about later.  I’ve got lots of stuff to process because of that, and I’m off on holiday at the end of the week so this month is going to be nothing but chaos. 

As such my blog may feel a little bit lack luster.  Stick with me.  I’ll try and pre-plan as much as possible.

Trailer Talk

Love, Rosie

So many many many many issues I have with this adaptation and it hasn’t even come out yet. I know I shouldn’t judge a movie before it comes out but darn it, this book is so close to my heart and I wish they hadn’t touched it. The film is based on the book by Cecelia Ahern (author of PS I Love You which was also butchered in movie form) and over here is is known as Where Rainbows End. But anyway, on to the trailer.

First question – why are they English? Second question – why is Alex at the prom? Third question – how annoyed am I going to make myself by looking for all the changes?

I really really dislike the fact that the characters are English, not just English but posh English.I’m not sold on the idea of these being normal people. I don’t understand why they couldn’t have set the film in the same locations as the novel. The novel is an Irish novel. There aren’t many movies made with Irish protagonists – I mean they speak English so it’s not even a language thing. Why did that have to change?

Also, we don’t see Rosie’s mom who for me was such an important character and by the looks of it, she’s not in it.

They touched upon the idea of the two of them being seperated all the time but the movie seems to have changed any element of the ‘fate’ part of it. So many things happen in this book because of small things, which doesn’t seem to be the case with the film.

I’m so riled by this because I love the book so much. I know I should just let it go and judge the movie when it comes out but this is such a disappointing start.

When you’re writing, the best thing you can say to yourself is:

'I can only get better from here.'

Next month is my long awaited holiday abroad. I think the most I can ever remember reading on a two week holiday was seven books. I want to smash that this time. Ten? Fourteen? I’m setting up my TBR at the moment and we’ll see how that goes.

At the moment I’m reading Ruby Red by Kerstin Grier so perhaps I will get a chance to read the trilogy before I go away.
