Watch | Read | Listen {June 2014}

There are so many big blockbuster movies, amazing books, and wonderful albums coming out this month. It was so hard picking only a few that I want to see, read, and listen to. The one thing I'm most excited about is The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet because it's a book based on The Lizzie Bennet Dairies, and I've raved about this web series to everyone I know. I pre-ordered this book in February and I can't wait to actually hold it!

MOVIES

Edge of Tomorrow
Based on the novel All You Need is Kill, this movie takes place in a future in which an alien race has come to Earth, but none of our military can beat them. Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he's thrown into essentially a suicide mission, but for some reason he finds himself stuck in a time loop. He starts the day over whenever he dies, but gets help from the only one who understands -- Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). I read the book, so I'm curious to see how they've translated it to the screen. (June 6)

The Fault in Our Stars 
Based on the bestselling novel, this film is about Hazel (Shailene Woodley), a cancer patient who falls for Gus (Ansel Elgort), a young man in her support group. This story takes us on unforgettable journey. This movie looks so amazing! I'll be sure to bring tissues. (June 6)

How to Train Your Dragon 2 
The sequel to How to Train Your Dragon continues Hiccup's (Jay Baruchel) journey with his dragon Toothless. The Vikings and the dragons have been successfully united, but when they discover a whole cave of wild dragons and a mysterious Dragon Rider, a battle for peace begins. (June 13)

The Signal 
Three MIT college students who like hacking go on a road trip and find themselves drawn to an isolated area after they follow another hacker. Suddenly everything goes dark and one of the students, Nick (Brenton Thwaites) finds himself in a waking nightmare. I'm not really sure how to describe this science fiction thriller, but it looks oddly intriguing. Watch the trailer. (June 13)

  2. I don't think I could handle seeing The Fault In Our Stars in a theater...I'm not a fan of crying at the movies! I'd rather do that in the comfort of my own home :)

  6. I think my husband saw how to train your dragon with his buddy and he loved it... I have a feeling he is going to drag me to see the sequel when it hits theaters ;) The Fault in Our Stars looks like a good movie as does 22 Jump Street which I hope is as funny as the 1st one... but let's me real - it probably won't be. :'( At least Channing Tatum's in it. lol
