Get a Job Trailer Drops

The exploration of unemployment from the comedic lens of millennials is hitting the big screen. Of course we have television shows like “Girls” to turn to for dazed and confused “millennials,” but now we’ll have a film with some top-notch talent. Anna Kendrick and Miles Teller, who filmed the flick way back in 2012, star in Get a Job. We’ve got some great supporting players popping up including Allison Brie (who has How to Be Single hitting theaters this month) and Bryan Cranston (our favorite meth dealing, ex-high school science teacher).

But now that he’s old enough, Joy reveals the truth. Initially in disbelief and outrage towards what she tells him about everything he thought he knew, Jack comes around to help them both escape from their captor, a man they call Old Nick.…

So I wanna say I was good this month! I didn’t spend outrageously, yet I still managed to get a good number of books! Do you think we could actually count this as a… Success?????!!! After finishing Shatter Me earlier this month, I had to go see how the rest of the series was going to go! THOSE EYES ON THE COVER ARE ACTUALLY GORGEOUS!  After seeing the whole series, my favourite’s got to be Ignite Me (BRB while I die over this cover!). I’ll hopefully get to devouring the rest of this series next month! Also, because I loved – like, actually fangirl so hard for – Snow Like Ashes, I needed to know what was going to happen in Ice Like Fire! I’m so excited!! I have heard she’s not with the guy I ship her with in this book though, so poo! OF COURSE, I had to get the new Alexandra Bracken book! Like, that could just come out and I not get excited about it (blasphemy!). I don’t…
