From Page to Screen: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is my favorite book from all times,  when I was little I read this book so many times that after some time the hard copy I owned started falling apart (now I have the Ebook in English and Spanish, and the Audiobook).

This book is again on screen (now with the wonderful Masterpierce from PBS) and I can’t wait to watch it.

Here’s the trailer:

The 2018 Movies based on Books I’m more excited about.

Hello everyone!

2018 will be filled with many great Movies from different genres and a lot of them are Book adaptations!!

Here are some of the Movies based on books I’m more excited about and that will be released during this year (in order of release date):

Forever My Girl (Based on Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin)

Release date: January 19, 2018

I love Country music and a good romance with a leading man who is a guitar player (ahem, my husband plays the guitar) for me is a recipe for a good time.


The Death Cure by James Dashner (Based on The Death Cure – Part 3 of The Maze Runner Trilogy by James Dashner).

Release date: January 26, 2018

Now that The Death Cure is coming we are planning to watch the first two movies from this Trilogy (The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials) the week prior to the release date of the third movie. And yes, those are Jojen Reed (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) from Game of Thrones in the Movie Trailer (another reason for me to watch this movie).


Every Day by (based on Every Day by David Levithan)

Release date: February 23, 2018

Can you imagine falling in love with someone that Every Day wakes up in a different body?, a little unconventional but to me it seems like an interesting premise and also, I really liked the Movie Trailer.


Love, Simon (based on Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli)

Release date: March 16, 2018

I haven’t read the book yet and a lot of people is talking about how good it is, so I’ll definitely put it on my TBR List and hope to read it before the movie release.


Where’d You Go, Bernadette (Based on Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

Release date: May 11, 2018 (expected)

As someone living in the Pacific Northwest I love watching movies taking place or that make reference to people and locations in this area (10 Things I Hate About You, Sleepless in Seattle). There’s not Official Movie Trailer yet but below you’ll find a great Book Trailer from Hachette Australia Books.


Crazy Rich Asians by (Based on Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan)

Release date: August 17, 2018 (expected)

There’s still not an Official Trailer but the video below with the actors taking about the movie make it look really promising and entertaining.

Movie Review: The Shape Of Water.


From master storyteller Guillermo del Toro comes THE SHAPE OF WATER, an otherworldly fable set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Doug Jones. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures.



The Shape Of Water is pure magic, poetry in motion with such an entrancing music that works as the perfect companion to the story.

Visually the movie is stunning, there’s an easy flow in the storytelling that keeps you enthralled the whole time and is full of wonderful and spellbinding moments with great acting.

An amazing work from Guillermo del Toro, a movie I can’t recommend enough and that will definitely be part of my Movie Collection.

Rating: 5 of 5.

Movie Recommendation: The Fate of the Furious.

The Fate of the Furious

Yesterday was Movie Night!, usually our Movie Night is on Tuesday but we couldn’t wait anymore to see the eight installment of the Fast and Furious saga. 

Thanks to my husband I became a fan of The Fast and Furious Movies (we have all of them), for that reason I was extremely excited about The Fate of the Furious and after seeing the movie I wasn’t disappointed.

The movie is definitely fast paced, with good action sequences and best of all Jason Statham is back!

I strongly recommend this movie that definitely will be part of our collection.

My Rating: 9 of 10.
