Hysteria by Megan Miranda

  VS   


My Vote:

This is a close one, but I think I like the UK cover better.  The US cover is kind of weird, but I like how the UK cover has much more going on, what with the blood splotches, the awesome tag-line, and the face on the cover.

Emily's Ramblings *drumroll*


So this Emily’s Ramblings post I wanted to talk a bit more about moi – me.  You know, what I do, what I like, about me, that kind of thing.  So, let’s go.
I’ve gone through a lot of phases in my life where I know everything there is to know about the subject (I went through a Queen Elizabeth I phase, a dinosaur phase, a Jeremy Renner phase (still in that one actually)).  Now I’m going through a movie phase.  I’ve become absolutely obsessed with them, because I have no life and nothing better to do than park my butt on the couch with some ice cream and watch movies all weekend long.  I treat movie actors like I treat authors: oh, yeah, this Channing Tatum was in so so and so movie, and J.K. Rowling also wrote so and so book.  I recognize a ton of different actors and actresses when they are in different movies.  My favorite actor/actress at the moment is Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence (thanks to The Avengers and The Hunger Games).
My two most favorite movies are Avatar and The Hurt Locker.  I must, must, must see The Host, Hansel and Gretel, and G.I. Joe Retaliation.  So, yeah, obsessed.

I also like listening to music sometimes.  I really love a few of Weezer’s songs (how many of you even know who Weezer is?).  Troublemaker is my anthem.
I also play soccer.  For you soccer players/lovers out there my team plays a 3-5-2, with a holding mid and two attaching mids in a triangle formation in the center, with a right and left mid.  I play right attacking mid :)

Hey, did you guys know that there’s for sure going to be an Avengers 2, and also a Hansel and Gretel 2?  I’m so excited.  I think what I might do for future Emily’s Ramblings posts is split it up into sections.  Maybe Randomness, then Movies, then I don’t know what.

Do any of you guys watch a show on BBC called Top Gear?  It’s a car show, and I’m totally not interested in cars, but this show is amazing.  It’s about these three British guys who absolutely love cars, and they’re best friends, and they test and review cars and do challenges with them.  They prank each other and are freaking hilarious.  And does anyone watch Survivor?  I love Survivor.  TEAM MALCOLM all the way!!

So I went to a soccer camp this week.  I could barely walk when I was done I was so sore.  It was just me and another girl there, and like 6 other guys my age, so I spent 3 hours a day getting beat up lol.  Not really though.  I haven’t really had time for reading.  I’m kind of in a slump right now.  I’m really intimidated by the size of my TBR pile lol.

Okay, well, I’m done for this week.


  Please don’t forget to vote on which cover you like best from above!! :)

  1. UK cover is better. The US one is a little strange, and I'm not even sure it's a good strange.

    Love your Ramblings! I'm a big movie buff and comic book fan, so I can't wait for Avengers 2! Midnight showing, here I come :) I also do watch Survivor. I've been a life long fan. It's one of those shows I watch with my family and we all talk about it. I'm so Team Malcolm right now, it's not even funny. But my sis is Team Cochran, so we're disputing with each other unless they form an alliance!

  2. I agree with you, the UK cover is better.
    I didn't know they were making a second Hansel and Gretel movie. I didn't thin the first one was that great.

  4. I think the US cover is different and interesting but wow, like you said about the UK cover, creepy yet awesome with a perfect tagline.

    Weezer is from my highh school days so I know them. lol I like that they appeal to a younger generation too. I'm super excited for another Avengers movie. :)
