Bookish Talk: Pan trailer

I’m sure that I’ve mentioned on my blog at least once how much of a Peter Pan fan I am. I love that story and I will read and watch anything that is set in that world. Like the Peter Pan Live! that’s airing on NBC next week (with freaking Christopher Walken as Hook. Dude. Christopher freaking Walken as Hook). Anyway, so when I saw that they were making a movie about Peter Pan that was going to be about his origin story and how he got to Neverland, you know I was excited. The first trailer was released three days ago and I’m pretty excited but I’m not getting my hopes up to much – I tend to be disappointed that way. Check out the trailer and then I’ll give you my first thoughts.

Okay, so Hugh Jackman looks absolutely ridiculous. Whatever that is on his head? No. However, Neverland looks amazing! And those floating ships? Wow. The kid playing Peter (Levi Miller) is adorable. Garrett Hedlund as Hook is really interesting and I’m excited to see how he is in that role. I haven’t seen Rooney Mara in anything really but I saw that a lot of people think choosing her for Tiger Lily was a mistake. Any of you guys know her acting better than me? What do you think? I think she looks pretty awesome in the costume, but her acting is what I really care about.

So what do you guys think? Are you excited to see Peter’s origin story? What about Hugh Jackman’s ridiculous wig?

Thoughtful Third Thursday: June 2014

The lovely Selah at A Bibliophile’s Style co-hosts Thoughtful Third Thursday (T#)  each month.

You can either pick your current read or use the theme they’ve set out. This month’s theme was:

Favorite childhood read.

There were a lot of books I could have chosen, but I think the one that’s stuck with me the most is J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. I’m really glad that Selah introduced themes into T3 because if she hadn’t, I would have had to try to find a corresponding quote from Necroscope and I don’t know how well that would’ve worked out.

I’m not really into fashion, and I pretty much always wear jeans/short with band t-shirts, so Thoughtful Third Thursday is a little difficult for me. Then, I remembered this quote!

“It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness.”

I recently saw one of my favorite bands, Hands like Houses, live for the third time and bought this t-shirt. It’s kind of a win-win. I get to participate in T3 and still wear a band t-shirt! Haha. 🙂
