There's a knock on my door & a nice chap hands me this box with all of this inside it! It's the giveaway that @callielafleur had that I won. Shipped very fast.

@callielafleur your generosity floors me and I am so very grateful. The truth is, this year, this is likely the only Christmas present I will be receiving and it really touched me that you would do this for a stranger. Thank you so very much. ❤️

GrilledCheeseSamurai @LeahBergen it really is, isn't it? I won't be around any family for the holidays this year, I'm a single dude and me and my Pals don't exchange...so that made this extra special. I may of even teared up a little. I'm just very touched. @callielafleur you done gone and made me melt. Thank you so much. And thank you everyone else for what has become a very special place for me. ❤️🤗❤️ 2y

Anne of Green Gables | L M Montgomery
post image

Thank you for the lovely #giveaway @callielafleur ! It was hard to choose just one movie for my favorite book to screen adaptations, as I'm a huge movie buff as well. But I decided to go with the 1985-1987 miniseries of Anne of Green Gables. It's been a favorite of mine since I was a kid and Kevin Sullivan did an amazing job. Plus, the cast was incredible! When I read the books, these people are who I picture. #OutlanderfortheHolidays 👒👜👒

WarpedSweetness This is the best one! The cast was incredible. I just watched one where Martin Sheen played Matthew...I didn't find it very good. 2y
JenlovesJT47 @WarpedSweetness I never had much desire to watch the new one, IMO they will never top this one! I started that new series on Netflix earlier in the year and was very turned off by it 😪you'll never top this cast for sure! 🤗 2y
RebelReader This is my favorite cast too and agree @JenlovesJT47 @WarpedSweetness that no other will top it. Tried the Netflix one, but just not the same. I'm going to read the book for the first time as an adult for one of my reading challenges in 2018! Can't wait! 2y

JenlovesJT47 @RebelReader awesome! I'm thinking about doing a re-read next year as well. The books are amazing! 2y
WarpedSweetness @JenlovesJT47 @RebelReader I definitely do not recommend the Martin Sheen one. He just...he wasn't Matthew; he talked too much or something. I haven't seen the Netflix one yet. I've been afraid to. I just... The Sullivan ones were perfect. I've been wanting to reread the books also! My 2018 is going to be jammed pack. Lol 2y
JenlovesJT47 @WarpedSweetness that Netflix monstrosity was awful, I barely made it through one episode ☹️ Martin Sheen is a good actor but nobody will ever top Richard Farnsworth! ❤️ 2y
WarpedSweetness @JenlovesJT47 I'm even more scared of it. I was so excited at first, until I read an article that it was going to be "darker". I didn't like that. I will eventually watch it, even if it is one episode, but I'm dreading it. Martin Sheen is a good actor; I totally agree about that! But who ever played what I feel is the "original" Matthew was perfect. I agree! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @WarpedSweetness yeah this "darker" version was weird, almost blasphemous lol. I only watched one episode but I heard it gets more edgy and everything, which doesn't even fit the time period or stay true to the innocence of the books. 2y

After discussing this topic with @cobwebmoth , I think that V for Vendetta is by far one of the best book to film transitions that I have ever seen. Thanks for the generous giveaway opportunity @callielafleur ! #outlanderfortheholidays

Schlinkles That is a great movie! 2y
WarpedSweetness I loved this movie! I didn't know it was based on a comic until a few years ago. 2y

Different Seasons | Stephen King
post image

I have a few favorite book to movie adaptations, so I will choose the one I didn‘t see posted yet - The Shawshank Redemption, adapted from Stephen King‘s novella Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. For the record, the others I considered were Stand by Me (adapted from the same book as this), The Princess Bride, and Anne of Green Gables. #outlanderfortheholidays @callielafleur

Harry Potter | JK Rowling
post image

I loooove the Harry Potter movies almost as much as I love the books. I mean, the book(s) is always better but these movies will always be special to me! Here's my (very treasured) Bluray boxset!

Thx @callielafleur for the opportunity to get my hands on the #outlanderfortheholidays. I really like the show and, like I said, the books are always better so I need to read 'em! 🤗

booksensation Omg I love this set! 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @booksensation Right? It was a random find years ago. I was browsing the movie section at Bestbuy and saw all of these individually. I squeeeed & scooped them all up (even though I already owned a set). Then, when I went to pay they gave me the slipcase to put them all in and I pretty much lost my shit. 🤗🤣 2y
booksensation @GrilledCheeseSamurai lol! I would have lost my shit too! 😂 2y
TricksyTails 😍😍😍 Oh I want these so bad! 2y
