quote 2015-09-15 03:36
Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn
The Maze Runner - James Dashner
The Scorch Trials - James Dashner
The Martian - Andy Weir
But there’s no app for a bourbon buzz on a warm day in a cool, dark bar. The world will always want a drink.

Excited to use my downtime in the hospital physical therapy rehab to catch up with my reading.  FINALLY I finished The Maze Runner 1&2, so we can watch the movie.

 

 

 I've been overly eager to read Gone Girl.  Excited to see what the film has to offer. Plus I have a whole other device a friend dropped off to keep my mind entertained with reading. 

 

Then onto The Martian. Of course my uncle wants to watch this. ..... and if course that nerdy female version of Sheldon from theThe Big Bang Theory while watching the movie.  It will be twice as bad since I'm have read the book.

 

 I'm just on a reading marathon....Any near and future movies based off of books anyone wants to recommend?

quote 2014-02-08 15:36
Vain as a child, thin as a stork's leg, and, in her black glasses, blind as an owl in daylight. She misses her footing on the social ladder at least three times a week, only to start climbing again, wriggling her pelvis all the while. She clasps her dead, white hands beneath her chin in the high hope of hiding the flatness of her chest.
Gormenghast - Quentin Crisp,Mervyn Peake

Irma Prunesquallor, described by Mervyn Peake at the beginning of the second book of the Gormenghast series.

i had to stop reading and laugh. How perfectly delightful! This quote illustrates how well Fiona Shaw captured the character of man-hungry Prunesquallor.

The character photo on the PBS page looks like the embodiment of this quote!

quote 2013-10-03 00:18
Dream by night
Wish by day
Love begins this way
Night's a friend
With love to send
Each new day

Bless your heart
Bless your soul
Let your dreams come true
Future songs and flying dreams
Wait for you

Love it seems
Made flying dreams
So hearts could soar
Heaven sent, these wings were meant
To prove once more
That love is the key

- from "Flying Dreams", written by Paul Williams and Jerry Goldsmith

 

(Some may recognize this song from the movie "The Secret of NIMH."  The original novelization was "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, but the movie also had a direct novelization as well.  I've read both.)
