The Help

I finally got to see The Help last night!  I read this book last year in a Book Club, and it instantly was added to my all time favorite books list.  I was so attached to the characters and was so sad when the book ended.  I know a lot of you have probably read it by now, but if not, you MUST read it!  It is also a great book for book club as it definitely leads to great in depth discussions.

As for the movie, it didn't disappoint!!  They did a terrific job of staying true to the storyline in the book, which is greatly appreciated!  You never know what you are going to get when books are made into movies, but in this case, it was wonderful to see how they portrayed the characters.  LOVED it! 

I went with a group of girls to see the movie at Studio Movie Grill, which is a theater that also serves food and drinks.  It was a great time.  Nothing better than enjoying a night out with the girls for a good movie and wine!  of course there was plenty of tears and laughter!  Don't forget to have tissues handy.....well that is if you are a cryer like me. 



  1. I can't wait to see the movie! Read the book almost 2 years ago and absolutely loved it!

  2. I so need to get this book! I am so behind on my reading. Would love to read it and then see the movie! They recently opened a Studio Movie Grill in our area.

  3. Great book and wonderful movie. Nothing better than a girls' night out!
