Writing Prompt #153: The ABC Book Challenge (The Letter J)

ABC Book Challenge - J 2

Here’s the link to Tiana’s post:


Memorable Books that Start with the Letter “J”:

Jacob Have I Loved

  • Written by Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia, this is a great historical fiction novel.

James and the Giant Peach

  • Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors. If you haven’t seen the movie adaptation (1996), I highly recommend it.

Jane Eyre

  • It took me a long time to be able to digest and appreciate Jane Austen, but Jane Eyre is one of her books that hold a permanent place on my shelves.

The Joy Luck Club

  • I resented reading this in high school as assigned reading. I actually want to re-read it at some point.

Jumanji

  • Chris Van Allsburg is another one of my favorite authors. The movie adaptation (1995) is one of my all-time favorite movies, and the recent sequel (2017) was also, surprisingly, well-made.

Just Listen

  • Sarah Dessen was a defining author throughout my high school and college years. I’m pretty sure this book is one of the first of hers that I read.

Books I Wish to Read that Start with the Letter “J”:

Jamaica Inn

  • I want to read more from Daphne du Maurier!

Jaws

  • I’ve seen the movie (1975), but I want to satisfy my curiosity by reading the book.

Jellicoe Road

  • I was very intrigued by the synopsis of this one!

The Journal of James Edmond Pease, A Civil War Union Soldier, Virginia, 1863

  • I love collecting the Dear America and My Name is America series!

Jurassic Park

  • Same story. I’ve seen the movie (1993) and sequels (1997, 2001, 2015, 2018), but I’ve never read any of Crichton’s work.

Just Between Us

  • I’ve read quite a few books by Susan Beth Pfeffer, but I don’t remember reading this one. Hopefully my library will have it.

What books have you read, or want to read, that start with the letter J? Let me know!


Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂

Writing Prompt #152: LB and K’s Blockbuster Challenge – Day 31

Welcome back!


Day 31 – Favorite blockbuster flop? (Film that should have been a blockbuster hit, but didn’t make it)?

  • The Postman (1997) – I saw this movie on TV the last time we went to the farm. It was a really interesting dystopian look, but it flopped, hard. I’ve always been a Kevin Costner fan, too.
  • Stealth (2005) – I think I saw this in theaters? I can’t remember. Regardless, I was surprised to see how badly it did at the box office.
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) – While not a true flop, it didn’t make nearly as much money as many expected. People gave it so much hate. We liked it!

What about you? What’s your favorite blockbuster flop?

Welcome back!


Day 29 – What TV show should have its own movie?

  • 30 Rock (2006-2013) – Al and I binge-watched the show for several months. It would be a great movie!

What about you? What TV show should have its own movie?

Welcome back!

Day 28 – Your guilty pleasure movie?

  • Dirty Dancing (1987) – I didn’t see it until I was in college, but I love it. I’ve also been to Mountain Lake in Virginia, where part of the film was shot.

What about you? What’s your guilty pleasure movie?
