Last week I missed posting which stinks.

The thing is I just didn’t know what to post about.  This happens to me a lot, the whole running out of things to say.  Sucks, right?  Is there anything sadder than a writer with no words?  Eh well, I’m going to keep trying anyway lol.

I saw this movie the other day that I really loved.  It’s called Sing Street.  Basically, this boy falls for this girl who he tries to impress by asking her (since she says she’s a model) to come be in a music video for his band.

Thing is…there is no band.

So the main guy scrambles around finding members to be in his band, writing song lyrics (inspired by girl), putting together hilarious costumes etc.  Did I mention the movie is set in Dublin in the 80s?  Ack, the makeup, the clothes, the MUSIC!  The story was just brilliant, funny and heartfelt, with a pair of brothers and their tight-knit relationship at its core, making up my favorite part of the story.  Brotherly love at it’s finest, and it was beautiful.

The movie reminded me of how tight Becks and his brothers are in ADORKABLE.  I’m a sucker for this kind of sibling relationship.  Absolutely loved writing Becks, Clayton and his brothers so much.

And you better believe, if Sing Street was a YA book, I’d be all over it :).

I mean, boy forms band just to impress the girl of his dreams?  I had to love it!  It kind of reminds me of 10 Things I Hate About You and how Cameron learns French just so he can tutor Bianca.  Le sigh…

When I was struggling to figure out what to post, someone told me I should write about the books I love, and I may definitely do that sometime.  This little movie, though, was such a bright spot.  I don’t know if many people have heard about or seen it, but I loved it.

In other news, I’m trying to set up a giveaway on Goodreads for ADORKABLE.  Currently, I’m waiting for my cover to be added to the paperback version–who knew you had to request these things?

Hopefully, I’ll have more on that later, but until then…I’ll just be here.  Trying my best.

Hope you are all enjoying your week so far!

Happy Reading,

Cookie O’Gorman

  1. I will check out the movie.
    I’m so excited, because I requested my local library system to order Adorkable and I got it from the library the other day. Now I get to read it for a fifth time.
    Are writing another book right now?

    • Hi Karen! That’s so exciting; thank you so much for requesting Adorkable :). Also, I love libraries and bookstores. They are my happy places lol. And right now I’m actually working on a book about a character that will be introduced in Ash’s book. I hope you have a great week!
