Happy New Year! I hope that you all have a happy, health and awesome 2014. There are a lot of great things going on this year and I want to give you some of my highlights for this upcoming year.
The first big event to take place is the Winter Olympics, which will start on February 6th and run through February 23rd in Sochi, Russia. There will be over 2500 athletes participating in 98 events in 15 sports. Some of the most popular events are ice hockey, snowboarding and ice skating. Another big sporting event will be the 2014 FIFA World Cup that will take place from June 12th to July 13th in Brazil. The United States will have a tough time since their group includes Germany and Portugal, two of the top teams in the world.
Another movie that is getting a ton of attention is The Fault in Our Stars. Besides being based on the bestselling book by John Green, the movie was also shot in Pittsburgh so that gives you an extra reason to see it when it comes out on June 6th!
There are also a bunch of great new books being released this year. The 6th book in the Mortal Instruments Series (City of Heavenly Fire) should be coming out in May and Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor is due for release in April.
Those are just some of the big events taking place in this new year. I hope you all have a fantastic 2014!!
