Definitely Benny and Joon!! That movie is so sweet!! I love when Sam makes his drumsticks dance, and when they make grilled cheese on the ironing board:) But also Edward Scissorhands, although I don't like the ending. I'm going to do a remake and have them live in the mansion happily ever after!!! A...

GAHH! I think A Wrinkle In Time is the bane of my entire existence!! Not only did I have to read it 4 times during my childhood/junior high education, I also had to do projects and perform in the PLAY!!!!!!!!...and I must say it has scarred me for life. The plot jumps around so much and I don't even...

They also mention it in Lost, when Sayid fuses two different glasses together to make hideous reading glasses for Sawyer-and Hurley goes "Dude, it looks like someone steam rolled Harry Potter." haha Poor Sawyer...

The only reason I'd even heard about these books was from my cousin, who practically forced me to read them. But I think they're fabulous. I did get a little confused with some characters and other languages, but other than that it's a great story line and really gets you involved. And I absolutely ...

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray is one of my favourites. Going into a realm where you can do anything and be anything and have anything you want?!?! Yes please? Also Ella Enchanted-book is much better than the movie, and Piratica is good, especially if you like pirates and girls kickin but...

I even found my ol...

I got into HP when I was about 11 or 12 during the summer. I found out about them from my cousin's a little earlier, but I was skeptical and thought they were kind of stupid. What could be so cool about a boy who's a wizard, I thought. Although during a camping trip that summer with those same cousi...
