Month in Review: March 2015
G’morning, readers. We’ve reached that day on the calendar. Here we have the fifth “month in review” which is set to chronicle some of the blog’s content and various other random things. Today we’re getting ready to turn the page on month three in 2015 (how!?). But enough about that, let’s get this month in review started.
1.) Book Shopping: Finally got a chance to go to the bookstore this past month! Picked up a couple YA reads (the Christian fiction section was seriously lacking because I basically own all of the books I want from that genre just now – INSPYs deserve big thanks for that), saw family then ended the day with Starbucks.
2.) Cashew Butter: I am seriously obsessed with this! Like, what’s peanut butter!?
3.) Casting Scoop: Disney is making Beauty and the Beast into a live-action film with Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans set to star. Great cast, right!? But wait, there’s more Disney awesome-ness, I just read yesterday, they are developing Mulan as a live-action re-telling! How awesome.
What say you to that fellow Disney buffs? Throw out any awesome-ness you’d like to share!
4.) Cinderella: I’ve gushed about this quite a lot, so I probably should not bore you all with more… but seriously this film was timeless and in its own way, epic. It’s all kinds of magical – and I enjoyed every beautiful detail.
5.) Dancing with the Stars: Yes, my guilty pleasure show is baaack and with it, more drama. I’m enjoying watching Willow Shields (The Hunger Games) dance with Mark Ballas, who is constantly coming up with creative routines – seriously, their tango last week? Crazy epic. Also enjoying the elegant dancing of Nastia Lukin and Derek Hough, and seeing Noah Galloway. There is an American hero.
What about you: who are you rooting for?
6.) INSPY Awards Update: Today is the LAST day for potential INSPY judges to apply. If you’d like to be considered to join our 2015 INSPY program (as a panel judge), please be sure to get in your applications today. The form will close at the end of the day. Judges will be notified on April 15th.
The pilot airs tonight.
(My) Blog Favorites
1.) Annie (2014) – this was one of those “surprise” movie gushes for me. I figured I’d enjoy it, but wasn’t sure I would like it as much as I did. Have you seen this film?
2.) Cinderella (2015) – yep, we’ve established my insane love for this film. ‘Nuff said.
3.) Emily Owens, M.D. – I had way to much fun gushing about this one.
4.) From the Start by Melissa Tagg – one of those delightful reads that you wish you could keep right on reading instead of going about your day. Darn, boring life. *grin*
5.) iZombie – unique and actually quite funny. This is Rob Thomas’ (Veronica Mars) latest project and despite not liking zombie things, I did enjoy the pilot.

The week of March 23rd – 30th
Silver Petticoat: I was able to review Cinderella for Silver Petticoat this month, which was fabulous fun. Also I put together a “Top List” full of YA dystopian reads, reviewed Love, Rosie (which was really good, but unfortunately had WAY too much profanity), recapped more The Flash and that’s about all there is to it. Today sometime, I am reviewing Rebel Belle, which was really quite fun overall.
Oh, and this is also the LAST day to enter the From the Start book giveaway.
Ps; Into the Woods came out last week! Have you seen it or are you going to?
I’m up for more chatting about that Disney tale.
