Read the book last Feb and just saw the film tonight. Out of the 37 books I read this year so far this one is on my top 5 picks. I enjoyed both versions📖🎬

It Ends With Us | Colleen Hoover

Can't wait for the film adaptation of It End With Us by Colleen Hoover. Justin Baldoni did very well with Five Feet Apart, I know this will be as good. One of my top reads in 2016.

The people going on and on about the audio are completely right, his voice is epic and dreamy. I love this story of Elio, angsty in his attraction to an older man staying with his family. If teenage love feels like life and death, this is magnified as he tries to understand and navigate his feelings. #bookbeforemovie

Lola He stars in the movie, too. 2y
ReadingEnvy @Lola yeah he plays Oliver. may he read many more audiobooks! 2y
Lola @ReadingEnvy And he has such an interesting background. Rabbit Hole... 🐰 2y

Ever since loving Stoner by John Williams, I have been on the hunt for more well written novels about small (but meaningful) lives. Kent Haruf does not disappoint and this brief examination of a friendship between an older man and woman was lovely. #bookbeforemovie

Tamra 👏🏾 I really enjoy Haruf! Along the same lines as Stoner, try (edited) 2y
ReadingEnvy @Tamra you know, I read that one but didn't connect to it very well. I wonder what is different! Another author I think of is Marilynne Robinson. 2y
Tamra @ReadingEnvy you know I haven't tried Robinson. I don't know why, maybe because she is so popular I think I might not like it??? Where should I start with her? Because Stoner is in my top 10!! (edited) 2y

BookNAround I loved this one. Simply beautiful. 2y
ReadingEnvy @Tamra I think the trio of books in order - Gilead, Home, Lila. 2y
Tamra @ReadingEnvy my bank account thanks you! 😉 I'll order the first. 2y
Skybariline Agreed. Watching the Netflix movie with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, and it is lovely too. 2y
ReadingEnvy @Tamra they can be a slow burn but I think that's true about all of these really 2y
ReadingEnvy @Skybariline I'm hoping to watch it tomorrow. 2y
HardcoverHearts I have so much love for his book. It ripped me to shreds. 2y
BarbaraBB Along these line I can also recommend the tagged book. And all by Elisabeth Strout of course! 2y
Cathythoughts Oh I must have a look. I also really loved Stoner. It's a book & a man I often think of. Only read it a year ago & it has stayed with me. Thanks for this post 👍💕 (edited) 2y
ReadingEnvy @HardcoverHearts and add to that itcame out after he died... I just 😥 2y
ReadingEnvy @BarbaraBB yes Elisabeth Strout fits in here I think, although her characters aren't always as redeeming on the surface (but usually play out to be) 2y
ReadingEnvy @Cathythoughts stoner is really remarkable so it's no shock that we would look for more! 2y
Karlamia I loved Stoner so much! Could not get him and that book out of my mind. I'll try this one too. Thanks for the rec! 2y

I hesitated to read this one but now I'm not sure why. The connection to world history makes it a better read, the fantastical is different, the setting sounds delightfully dreary, and I'm curious what will happen in the next books. And now I can see the movie! #bookbeforemovie

Irenadawn I am a little scared to read this one ! LOL! I know I should not be because it is not real , is it ? LOL! The movie looks so real from seeing the trailers ! YIKES ! I sort of think I should think of it as these children are handicapped and they are hidden away because society has rejected them and that breaks my heart. Is that how I should go into it instead of thinking of a scary horror thing ? Let me know if I should try it ? (edited) 3y
Irenadawn Oh! Jenny! I meant to tell you . I more than loved the podcast with you and Jason ! I mean I love all of your podcasts! You are wonderful ! You have the best voice . You read great books and I have to admit , I am hooked on speed dating ! You and Jason have chemistry on the air . You just fall into an easy rhythm! It was by far my favorite so far. Can I suggest some ideas for future podcasts ? I don't know if you have ever taken suggestions? ❤🎈❤ 3y
