I Love Teacher Books And I Hate Animal Movie Trailers...

I do!!!

I really do.

I love books about boarding schools that are normal or paranormal.

I love books about high school students.

I love books about academies and colleges and universities.

I can't wait to read this book.

It's a first sound amazing...a teacher who " succumbs to temptation ".

I love books about people who succumb to temptations.

I am saving it for the holidays.

And speaking of holidays.

I cry every time this trailer for War Horse is shown.

How can anyone sit through that movie dry eyed?

I will never be able to see it.

The trailer haunts me.

I cried when I saw the Broadway fake horse puppet on the Tony Awards.
I don't think this movie has a happy ending.

This horse is brave and beautiful and stalwart...I love the word stalwart.

This horse will probably do anything to get back to his owner.

Movies like this one...a Stephen Spielberg movie...are awesome.

And I will never be able to see it.

I can't read Water For Elephants, Black Beauty, Dewey the Library Cat, Marley and Me,  and the book about the poor pit bull.  Oogie?

Is there a book or movie that is so sad you are not able to see it or read it?

I can't be the only one...


  1. I love boarding school stories too.

    I think I'm going to pass on War Horse although the scenery looks tremendous.

  2. Yet one more thing we have in common...War Horse is definitely a

  3. Oh, I also love books about people who succumb to temptation...and I'm reading a book like that now. The Kingdom of Childhood takes the reader into some forbidden territory, but it's written in such a way that I can totally connect with the characters, even though I've never done anything like this.

  4. I love the book about boarding school, too especially the paranormal one :) I have never came across the book that were too sad to read though... but a lot of book that were to boring to read :(

  5. I love school stories, too! I also do not like books that involve animals and sadness. I don't think I will be able to see War Horse. I fianlly gave in and read Water for Elephants and it was good. Much different than I was expecting. I can't stand animal cruelty and from what I have heard Marley and Me will send me over the edge!
