Another month, Another book (or two, or three)

in Books

Although I cannot really claim that this past month’s reading held as many gems as the previous month, I can say that I have exposed myself (boy, that sounds dramatic) to all new authors. So that’s…something.

 

Julie-Julia

I truly thought this was going to be right up my ally. I really liked the movie and I consider myself a fellow foodie blogger (although I am not nearly as involved as Julie was). But if I was being honest I would have to say that this was not all what I had hoped for, she is just too negative for my taste.

I really enjoyed this book. Like I said, I had never read a book by Dan Brown before and I haven’t read many (or really any) thriller type novels. I have not seen the film but I doubt I will. Not because I didn’t enjoy the book but its fairly violent and I don’t do well with blood and all that. I can barely watch House with the boyfriend:)

Holes
Such a fun read. It’s a middle school type reading level too so its fun for all ages. I will definitely be seeing its movie version. Actually all the books I read this month have movies made out of them-hmm…I didn’t notice this before. Weird.

This is my current read. I am only about half way through so I hate to judge too soon, but so far I love it!

Also if you get the chance you ought to go see, The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I adore Mr. Anderson’s films in general and this one did not let me down. Maybe it’s not his masterpiece, but its funny and sweet and beautiful.

Have a happy little weekend!

i loved holes, too! and i couldn’t get into angels and demons, either. i loved the da vinci code (surprising and not usually the type of book i read!), but i didn’t even make it halfway through angels and demons before deciding it SUCKED. :)

I agree with Julie/Julia. I read the book this summer while on vacation and I thought it was a real drag. I was reluctant to watch the movie but ended up loving the movie- it is rare that the movie is better than the book- but this was totally the case with J&J.
I read Friday Night Knitting club last winter and really enjoyed it- not sure if I enjoyed it enough to want to read the second one though.

My teeth, I suddenly indolence walked so long road; endure for a long time to see the pain of his embarrassment. Now I saw nothing, but the achievement, early know will not come. “You got a job?” He suddenly asked me. “Not yet. As you introduce a hospital director or their son to me? Maybe I can catch retaliate ‘oh.” I feel very false smile, a bit like a woman in dusty 40s Boethius observed there. He said to the mouth, Zhan didn’t say anything. “I walked, goodbye.” I feel boring; don’t want to see him again.

I completely agree with the Julie and Julia comment! It’s too bad because I think it would’ve been such a good book and an even better movie :(
