4 Creative People Had This To Say:

Michele said...

LOVED 500 Days of Summer mainly for Zooey Deschanel love her hair and look/style and the soundtrack is excellent too.

Have you seen Bright Star? or Sherlock Holmes?

Re books try Oscar and Lucinda by Peter Carey or Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey or A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry all excellent reads. Or for something with a historical bent (but in a fascinating engaging way) try anything by Edward Rutherferd such as Sarum, London, The Forest, Dublin etc. Will think of some more but for now thats what comes to mind.

Love love love The Time Travellers Wife, Kite Runner and The Book Thief. Read them with my bookclub last year.

Always after a new good read

Michele-we are kindred spirits! I've been wearing my bangs (subconsciously like Zooey's in {500} Days! I'll have to post a new pic, now, I suppose. But I love her, too.

I will have to look up those books, and Bright Star. We will have to wait for Sherlock-isn't it still in theaters? We Netflix-and love it; it requires waiting but is cheaper than babysitting.
