, does Slumdog Millionaire
follow the movie or is it the original book from which the movie was created (original title is Q & A
)? I love Renoir, too. He just amazed me. The book really brought the painting alive for me and made me even more in love with the painter.
, I enjoyed Remember Me
, though I often get frustrated with Sophie Kinsella's characters--they can do some really stupid things, but they're so human, it's hard to stay mad for long.
You might really like the book I'm listening to on CD right now--Size 12 is Not Fat
. It reminds me a lot
--are you fond of that genre? You might like Labyrinth
by Kate Mosse. I think it was really similar to DaVinci Code
, though I didn't read the latter.
, that book really, really changed how I think. I'm trying hard to eat locally, which means very little fruit in the winter, though I'm spluring on clementines.
Still, it's keeping me away from the berries this winter and led to us joining a CSA last summer (we'll do it again this year).
, did you read the books by Libba Bray that start with A Great and Terrible Beauty
? They're really interesting and fun (YA), and they, too, have a really memorable and praiseworthy heroine. I've read the first two.
, I'm with you--I can't read scary books at all because they stick in my head, but definitely not before bed...
I'm on the same books...2/3 of the way through Edgar Sawtelle
. If you love dogs and dog training, you could really, really like this book, though I'm a bit annoyed at the literal connection to Hamlet. I like writers to come up with their own ideas.
I'm almost done with Size 12 is Not Fat
and, even though I'm still annoyed at the main character for acting in some really dumb ways, I do really like the story.
