Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

So a few years ago I read the book The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.  I LOVED it.  I recommended it to everyone.  It’s on my top ten books of mine.  That’s saying a lot.

Well imagine my joy when I heard that Netflix was making a movie of the book.  I was so full of anticipation…then dread.  What if they screw it up?

Well the movie came out earlier this month and even though I’ve been super busy, I took time and watched it.  I didn’t stitch when I watched.  I didn’t pin.  I only watched.  Again, that is saying a lot for me.

Here’s the Billboard from the movie so you know what to look for in case you want to give it a try.

So what did I think???

Me I loved it.  I loved it a lot.

The scenery was wonderful.

The cast was well done.

The second I was done with it I was messaging Kayla telling her she MUST watch it.

It’s made me want to read the book again.  It’s made me want to watch the movie again.  That is a lot coming from me.  I rarely watch movies twice.  RARELY.  So if you have Netflix, give this a try….and please do recommend anything else you’re watching there.

P.S. If you don’t have Netflix, it’s worth signing up just for a month to see it!!
