Hello, and welcome to our very first FaceTime Friday!
We figured this will either be a major bust or people will enjoy our humor and
extreme amounts of awkwardness.
[Your feedback is welcomed!]
If you are new to Turning Pages, let me first start off with a little background…
this blog is run by cousins, Christie & Heather who share a love for books. We live in separate states [NC & AL] so this is a way for us to stay connected since we only get to visit each other [at least] two times a year.
**Warning: We have a tendency to get off topic.**

The discussion went something like this…
Christie: I’ve read the book like 12 times give or take.
Heather: I am a slacker. I’ve only read it twice. Now I want to read it again.
We loved the the movie adaptatio
But still love the book.
Christie is Team Ian & Heather is [“WHY CAN’T I HAVE BOTH!?”] Team Jared.
Only [not so major] difference that WE noticed was that in the book, Jamie -Melanie’s brother – cuts his leg while they are out on an excursion, but in the movie he cuts it in the wheat field.
“I wouldn’t mind having one of the souls as a pet.” – Heather
Before seeing the movie, this is how we both pictured the souls to look like this –>[which resulted in a fit of laughter]
Only major complaint was that there wasn’t as much of the Ian and Wanda relationship in the movie as there was in the book. Their relationship was more developed in the book to where the reader was more torn between Ian and Jared.
Our what was to be FaceTime where we only discuss books and movie adaptations, evolved into a discussion on “gator shootin'” [which is that legal?] and comparing “Sunday best to Wednesday worst” [long story, but there’s a difference] other topics were discussed, but not blog appropriate.
*Side note:we wouldn’t mind Max Irons shoving us against a trailer in the rain.*
Heather: “I don’t recommend being shoved against a barbed wire fence.”
SO, what are your thoughts? Did you like the movie? Did you like the book? How about both?
Also, have we scared you away from our blog? Haha.
Heather & Christie
