Skyrockets in Flight Blog Hop and Giveaway

Happy Independence Day!

Lush Book Reviews
Few things say July 4th to me like cookouts, fireworks, and Jaws. Jaws is my favorite movie! What could be better than Peter Benchley's story, Spielberg's filmmaking, and sharks? For me, it's the quintessential summer film!

"Martin, it's all psychological. You yell barracuda, everybody says, 'Huh? What?' You yell shark, we've got a panic on our hands on the Fourth of July."

What’s your favorite summer movie? Tell me in a comment below and click one of the follow buttons on the right for the chance to win an electronic copy of my book, Magick Charm!

  3. Summer movie - hmmm hard to say, I agree with you on Jaws - that's some bad had Harry - I also love Independence Day -Will Smith kicking the alien saying "I could have been at a BBQ" classic.

    PS - I am a diver so see sharks in person all the time

  4. I agree Jaws is favorite summer movie though I remember when I first watched it (when I was younger)I was scared to death to get back into the water again.



  5. Pimpin' Reads, I love Grease! I spent half the summer when I was 13 watching it on betamax every day!

  6. Denise, the Harry Potter movies are fantastic! I can't wait until I get to see the last one!

  7. Penny, I love the president's speech in Independence Day. Such a fun movie! Will Smith is fantastic - "And what is that smell??"

  8. BLHmistress, I saw Jaws for the first time when I was a little kid. For a long time after that, I thought long and hard about whether the bathtub might be hiding a shark before I got in! LOL!

  9. For me it's Independence Day-- the movie with Will Smith...we own it on DVD and I always have to watch it when summer rolls around.

    I just saw Penny commented above me that she loves it too. The speech is great, and the wedding scene I love too.

  10. Hi Brenda, thanks for stopping by! Now I think I will have to watch that movie this week... it's such a good one!

  11. Summer Rental with John Candy is hilarious!

  16. You guys are right, Independence Day is a really fun movie! I love Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum... together, they're awesome!

  17. Some great summer movies mentioned above! My favorite of late would have to be 50 First Dates; it cracks me up when my teenage son imitates Doug, Ula and 10-second Tom.

    Thanks for participating in the blog-hop Jennifer, great giveaway :-)


  18. I don't really watch much in regards to tv or movies. But when I was younger, and even occasionally now, I loved the Friday the 13th movies. They always remind me of summer because they are set at a summer camp.
