Protecting the Movie Star (The Protectors) by Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams
Protecting the Movie Star (The Protectors Book 4) - Samantha Chase,Noelle Adams

 

If experience makes the man, Cole is a force to be reckoned with.  From an early age he's fought battles that no person should have to face and done acts that have left him in despair.  Criminal, fighter and best friend are monikers he can't escape, but the one title that changes the man from fighter to warrior is protector.  He wears that title like a badge of honor and will let nothing stop him from shielding the woman he loves.  Not even guilt. Protecting the Movie Star is darker and bolder than the previous three novels in the Protectors series. Not only does Cole and Evangeline tempt readers with their page turner romance, but authors Chase and Adams close out the series by tying up loose ends. An emotional tale of redemption, faith and hope that inspires the heart and heals the soul.

Movie Vs Book - Fault In Our Stars

So I'm about 30 mins into the movie and really enjoying it so far. The book was brilliant, no doubt, but I had fears the movie wouldn't live up to my high expectations. So far it's not letting me down. (yay)

Anyways the whole point of this post is you know when your watching a movie and something happens and you swear a detail is off and it really bugs you. Especially because your not sure if your right or wrong because it's been so long since you've read the book?
Well I'm having that moment but with something a bit bigger than a minor detail..... I was totally under the impression that Augustus was well... of colour. (Which personally I would totally dig) Now I know this was a giant issue with Hunger Games and maybe that was reflected while I was reading The Fault In Our Stars? It has been quite a few years.... I don't know. :/

Did anyone else feel the same in relation to this book? or have a similar thing happen to them?

Walter Mitty
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty - James Thurber

Meet Walter Mitty.

 

He's a Husband.

 

He's a Captain of a Navy ship

 

He's a toughest man on the trial

 

He's the man who can a woman from distress and is a hero to all man kind.

 

He's also worrying his wife, his co-workers, his boss and his shrink.

 

Walter Mitty has dreams. Dreams of being a hero. But he's not dreaming them in bed, like everyone else is. He's dreaming these events while driving, while shopping, talking to his wife, walking down the street. He "sees" himself as a hero to everyone, but doesn't really do anything about it. He's just your average Joe that is taking his wife to get her hair done. And while she is getting her hair done, he runs errands. But everyday life, everything that we see, feel, touch, hear generates this scene in his head where he is the hero to the story and he's living it right then and there!! While everyone looks at him like he's weird, he doesn't see what wrong with this!!

 

As a writer I was thrilled that I am not the only person that this is happening too!!! I can't tell you how many times I will be sitting at the Library that I work at and there will be an event that will take place, or someone says something to me and it triggers a scene playing in my head and I'm living that story out (in my head of course). I am a writer and I am always getting scenarios playing out in my head that sometimes leave me speechless until I am writing that out in my laptop. Sometimes I talk out loud the scenes but hey, I'm a writer it's allowed. (I think....)

First time I've read it and so glad that i did
Relic (Pendergast, Book 1) by Preston, Douglas, Child, Lincoln (2003) Mass Market Paperback - Douglas, Child, Lincoln Preston

Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human...

But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders.

Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who-or what-is doing the killing. But can she do it in time to stop the massacre

 

What did I think:

five stars

 Got my copy of it from thriftbooks.com


I actually like it, while there was some parts that did remind me of the movie adoption,the book its self seemed a lot different, will differently be picking up the rest of this series to read and will be checking out the movie to watch since its been a while, while some say they had trouble getting in to the book , i never did , it had me pulled into the story from the start

More details - the book my sister remembers

Related to my previous post...

 

Here's some more info on the book my sister has vague memories of that she thinks Passengers might be based off of:

"I think it's a relatively older one though. I believe I was in middle school and it wasn't new at that point either.*

 

The main character is a guy. He's the only one awake and the ship I'm pretty sure has a female voice that can talk.... Maybe. That memory could be incorrect

 
I do know that there was a robotic android bartender that the guy would talk to
And I'm pretty sure he was the ship's janitor or something who accidentally got woken up too soon."
So, even if Passengers isn't based on a book, is this thing that my sister remembers a real book? I'm pretty sure I've read more SFF than her, and I can't recall ever reading anything like that. But then again I have huge gaps in my older sci-fi reading.
 
* - Meaning it was published before the late 90s.
