March 2019 Recap

March was a blur. Spring has finally arrived, but in true Ohio fashion, the month still ended with snow. The highlight was going with Amanda to see Harlan Coben. Some interesting things he shared: he has had several books adapted to film, but he is only interested in doing it if he can be involved. He also doesn’t mind if they make a lot of changes from the book. He said if you want the book experience, read the book. An adaption should be different. (We have to agree to disagree on this point.) He also said that after he wrote Run Away, all of his children read it and then fought over which one of them the main character’s drug addicted daughter was based on. He said that all of his characters are made up, except for one popular character that appears in several books (I apologize for not remembering the character name, as I have only read a couple of Coben’s books so far) that is modeled off of his college roommate. He said his old roommate was at one of his book signings once and ended up getting a longer line for autographs than Coben did.

 I like this picture of me and Amanda because I’m kind of fuzzy in the background like I’m her weird stalker or something 🙂

This is ME! Is it odd that I'd rather hangout with my fictional friends inside my books; than hang out with nonfictional living humans?

  1. You don’t look like a weird stalker lol! Harlan was so much fun to see. I also didn’t agree with his thoughts on book adaptations. I can’t remember the name of the popular character either. I know it was a supporting character because someone asked if he would ever get his own book. I did really like Run Away so I am looking forward to reading more of his books. I also tried 2 other authors because of you and liked both of them. I listened to Let’s Get Textual in 1 day. That was fun to listen to and it was refreshing after listening to Eeny Meeny.

    • I am totally your weird stalker haha. I’m glad you ended up liking the book! I look forward to hearing what you think of some of his other ones. And I’m so happy you liked Let’s Get Textual! I love that series, but the first book is definitely my favorite. I’m pretty sure I read it in 1 day, too. And Eeny Meeny is definitely a heavy read! I kind of lost track of that series and need to get going on it again.

      • Eeny Meeny was definitely a heavy read. So was the second one. I have the audio of the third one but I need a break so I am listening to a YA book.

  2. I love this!! I’m so glad you got to meet him. He sounds like such an interesting and fun guy. He pokes fun at his kids on social media, which I think is hilarious. Love the pictures, too. I have yet to watch any of the film adaptations/tv series from his books. I don’t even have the desire to, really. I will just stick to reading them. 🙂
    I’m over this cold weather…it needs to change and stay that way!

    • I really don’t know why I still get surprised that the weather is so awful for so long in Ohio haha. The event was really fun. He was a fun author to see if you ever get a chance to go see him, you should!

  3. How cool that you got to see Harlan Coben and hear him speak! I’m surprised by his feelings about movie adaptations. Great pictures too. You had a very productive and exciting reading month!

  4. You read so many books so far this year, that’s so awesome! I started reading In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware in early March. It seems like it’s going to be a really great thriller from what I’ve read so far.
