  1. I’m really excited to see When Harry Tries to Marry. I saw the trailer a little while back, and it looks really cute! Speaking of cute…the lead actor is really cute. Can’t wait till it comes out near me!

  2. I’m excited about Water For Elephants. I read the book last year as part of a library program and I enjoyed. I’m also a big fan of Reese Witherspoon so hoping for good things out of her performance.
