Loved The Book, Excited For the Movie! WATER FOR ELEPHANTS

I read WATER FOR ELEPHANTS by Sara Gruen last year.  Admittedly I wanted to read it because I knew it was being made into a movie.  A lot of times movies don't live up to the books, so I try to read it first and then see the movie. I really loved the book!! And by the looks of the trailers I think (hope) I will love the movie too!!! I was skeptical of the chemistry between Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, wasn't sure it would live up to the book, but it looks pretty darn good.

I was shopping today and saw the beautiful movie tie-in paperback.  AND decided to do a little giveaway!  Since Jacob takes up with the circus and the story primarily revolves around that time in his life... Tell me, what is your favorite act/part of the circus??  Comment below this post with your answer and make sure to include your email address so I can contact you if you are the winner!! Contest ends at midnight on Sunday (March 13) and the winner will be contacted on Monday.

AND for your viewing pleasure....Here's the latest trailer, it's an International Trailer.  Do they have to make different trailers to be used Internationally than the ones shown here in the US??  Hmmm wonder why.  Anyway here ya go, enjoy! 

Don't forget to enter to win a copy and tell a friend!!

THE CONTEST IS CLOSED - Congratulations To LINDSAYWRITES who was selected at random as the winner! (By the way I don't like clowns either lol)

My favorite act in the circus is the ribbon dancers! I saw them when I was a young girl and I just thought they were so beautiful. It's really mesmerizing to watch them!

My favorite circus act would have to be the motorcycle act. Though it isn't found in all circuses it's a thrill to witness.

My favorite act of the circus is the tight rope.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I absoultely love aerial contortion in silk! I find it so majestic and sensual and pretty darn amazing! So so so beautiful! =) The way the body molds and adapts itself with the silk and all the different moves, contortions... And all up in the air *-* So cool!

Thanks for the giveaway! I've been wanting to read Water for Elephants for a REALLY long time! Even more now that there's a movie coming out!

Circuses are one of the most beautiful and artistic forms of entertainment (love cirque de soleil). :)

Anyway, my favorite part of the circus is the ribbon dancers, contortionists, and the different animals that come out, especially with them in the act, and they do awesome tricks. :)

Good luck to everyone and congrats to the winner! :) Hope the movie's great! Looks exciting! :)

The only circus I've seen is Avaia, which is the one with Russian horses. Flat out most amazing thing I've ever seen, my favourite part was when they were galloping around the ring and the riders were jumping easily from one to another doing acrobatic tricks. Anyone who rides can say thats a good way to break your neck but they made it seem so effortless.
Thanks so much for the giveaway ^_^
