30 Day Meme Wrap-up

After my very first Meme EVER I decided I wanted to do a little Meme wrap up of the books and movies that my fellow bloggers and friends had talked about that I haven’t yet read or watched. This wrap-up will NOT include every post that was involved, only the ones that had suggestions of actual books or movies.  This will be a good reference for me to use to remember a) what was suggested and b) who suggested it.  My plan is to read and watch all of the books and movies and get back to the suggester on what I thought of them. 🙂 Each Meme day I received good feedback on books or movies that I should look into I will share with you The Book or Movie Title and in () will be who suggested it to me. If it is slashed out that means I have already read or watched it. ENJOY!

  1. Lol, I had such a hard time coming up with anything 😉 Tough meme indeed

  2. Aw super sweet and nice to see what everyone has recommend to you, some really good and interesting books and movies!

    • Yeah, I really wanted to make sure to at least try to check some of these out and I figured that others would want to see what people thought of for different meme’s. I think it says something when two people say the same book or series or movie and I think it says something when someone mentiones a book or series or movie more than once. 🙂

  3. Apparently, I like the Mortal Instruments series. LOL And you HAVE to watch Love Actually!!!! Have to have to have to!!!
    Your meme was fun. I still don’t know how you managed to come up with answers for all of them (times two because you did movies too)! You did great and it was fun to read what you came up with. You should do this again 5 years from now when you get more books under your belt. 😉

    • I know! (on several accounts). I do believe you really like the Mortal Instruments series which makes me want to bump it up to the top of my TBR pile! I know that I really need to watch that movie and it’s on my Netflix account waiting to be sent my way! I also agree that I should do this Meme in a few years because it would be fun to see how my answers change with the more books I’ve read! Thanks again for all your participation Julie!

  4. Aww D. No thanks needed. I was fun participating even though some of the questions were crazy hard. =)

    • LOL, yes they were crazy hard! It was hard trying to sort out all the books in my brain to pick which one was perfect for each day…hence the over lap. LOL. I really enjoyed seeing everyones answers to get more ideas on books to read and movies to watch!
