Notes From The Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Notes From Underground - Fyodor Dostoyevsky,George Guidall

Interesting and humorous.
This guy sits alone and decides to write down all his vents and vexations against every one and every thing under the sun. I actually laughed at his ramblings, and nodded in agreement as I found it ironic to be happening still today. I even became baffled at one point by what exactly his problem was. Still I was pretty enthralled. For being written in the 1860's, I was amazed at how drawn into the writing I was. 
It may not be the most magical read I have ever read, but it was so far from what I usually read. Still, I am glad to have read it.

Murder Notes (Lilah Love) - Lisa Renee Jones

Holy cow!  I could not put this book down.  I just had to keep reading to find out answers.  Imagine my surprise when I realized this book ends on a cliffhanger.  Ugh....I want, no, I NEED to know the answers to this mystery and it is killing me having to wait.

Lilah Love works as an FBI profiler.  She understands how killer's think and is really good at her job.  Lilah is now living in California after running away from her past in the Hamptons, NY.  Imagine her surprise when her latest case is dragging her back into the past she has been trying to run from.

Back in the Hamptons, Lilah finds herself immersed into another murder and having to deal with her father, the mayor, her brother, the police chief, and her ex, now the head of the local crime family after his father was murdered.  As Lilah is investigating things in New York, someone else is leaving her notes taunting her.  Just when you think you have something figured out, the story takes a hard left turn.

Overall I love this story and I really love Lilah.  She is a total bad a$$ type of girl with such a foul mouth, but she really knows her job.  I love this ride Lilah is taking me on and I can't wait to see how it ends.

Murder Notes (Lilah Love) - Lisa Renee Jones

 Murder Notes by Lisa Renee Jones is the First book in the Series called "Lilah Love".  
Lilah is a successful FBI Profiler and works hard in the job she loves.  But some new murders have clues that are leading her back to her home town and a secret that she has been keeping.  The more she gets into who is the murder the more she finds that the murder is leading into her.   Back in her home town not only leads her back to her family but to a ex boyfriend named  Kane Mendez, whose father was a part of the local crime lord/mob association.
What can you say but WOW! This book had you on the edge of your seat!  You just can't put it down and wanting to find out what is going to happen next!  So very exciting!  This does end with an ending that sets up the next book in this series.  Can't wait!

Notes on Adaptation: Call Me by Your Name, Alternate Casting Edition
Call Me by Your Name: A Novel - André Ac... Call Me by Your Name: A Novel - André Aciman

Sometimes, when I read a book, a particular actor who might certain a character gets in my head and totally takes over. 

 

When I read "The Martian," it was absolutely Matt Damon as Mark Watney. Of course, that casting had already been announced. You can read more about my thoughts on that here: http://carissagreen50.booklikes.com/post/1264907/notes-on-adaptation-the-martian-casting-edition.

 

A while before "Gone Girl" went into production, Ben Affleck - but blonder and younger - totally took over Nick Dunne's voice as I read. You can read more about that here: http://carissagreen50.booklikes.com/post/766885/some-thoughts-on-gone-girl.

 

Yesterday, I read Andre Aciman's "Call Me By Your Name," which, of course, has been adapted into a highly-regarded movie. I hope to see the film still this awards season. But it's possible I'll have to wait, as our small-town movie theaters often don't bring in "art films." Or perhaps it came and went during the period I was completely distracted with my recent move and the holidays. 

 

Either way, I'm well aware that Armie Hammer plays the 24-year-old professor, Oliver, who becomes the obsession of the 17-year-old Elio. But Mr. Hammer was NOT the face and voice who completely invaded my reading. 

 

Oliver was, for me, almost from his initial introduction, a (much) younger Jon Hamm - or perhaps a younger, '80s version of Hamm's "Mad Men" character Don Draper. Subtract 20 years and make him look a little bit more "ethnically Jewish" - maybe closer to the novelist Nathan Englander, for example - and that's who I saw. 

 

Sorry, Armie Hammer. I'm sure I'll enjoy what you did with the character. But for now, you're my "alternate casting."
