Surprise book #2 for the Books to Movies Challenge and a jampacked weekend

Presenting my next book for the books to movies challenge… Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. Hells yeah. Okay, I know I made a friggin’ list, but I just gotta read this one next. I’ve heard of Battle Royale lots of times but I’ve never read the book or seen the movie, so when I saw this blood red beauty in the bookstore (I was looking for the books on my original list), I just grabbed it. Also, the fact that it was just less than 400 bucks made it real easy. Yeah, I’m kind of a cheapskate even with books – I always try to look for the cheaper edition. Anyway , this is friggin’ purrrfect for the challenge. I AM SO EXCITED. I did a little jig when I unwrappped it. Seriously.

I love the cover. RED. It’s pretty thick too. Around 600 pages.
And look! On the inside is a map of the island. Nice.
“I dedicate this to everyone I love. Even though it might not be appreciated.”

This last photo is my favorite page so far. Hah. 

I haven’t actually started reading it yet, but I can’t wait. I don’t know how I can do it over the weeknd though ’cause I have a pretty packed weekend! We’re watching Transformers 3 tonight so my night’s pretty much occupied. Tomorrow is the first day for my ultimate frisbee team’s annual little tourney and that’s going to be the whole day. Let’s see if I can squeeze in a few pages before I sleep. Then it’s another Summer League day on Sunday. I’m so stoked about this weekend! Hah!

Happy weekend!

  1. LOL, lists are good reminders, but we shouldn’t let them limit us–I’m glad you didn’t…you would have missed all of theat excitement (and the little jig)! =)

    I hope you enjoy the book.
