  1. I loved North and South (the BBC show). It was so fantastically filmed. (It made me a fan of Richard Armitage.) I also have 1Q84 but the size of the book intimidates me. I will begin it! One of these days! Have fun reading your many books.

  4. hehe Haruki Murakami is my favourite author but I have trouble pronouncing his name too! I think I've got it down by now but only through various YouTube videos making sure. I like that you're branching out of YA and it makes me want to want to go back to reading more 'literary' type books. I really enjoyed A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to so it's long overdue I read the rest of the books in the series!

    P.S. love your hair!

  5. So glad you liked The Great Gatsby, I've just finished doing it for my exams and I can confirm it is the ONLY book in English Literature that I haven't hated after analysing it to death. Such a good book, and I can't wait for the movie!

    Ooo, I'd love to know what you think of Atonement after finishing it. I was quite intrigued by it but the other book I studied for my exams was Enduring Love by Ian McEwan and IT WAS AWFUL. Just, so bad. Hope you enjoy Atonement though :)

    1. Hahaha, I never analyzed much literary fiction in high school, but yeah, I wouldn't have minded this book. and I'm so excited for the movie too!! Atonement is alright so far, I find McEwan's writing really.. like detailed and almost unnecessarily flowery, I know I can't stand it when that occurs in YA fiction so I'm wondering if I'm creating a different pedestal just because I know it's a different genre. We'll see though, i'm about a third through-- I liked the movie so much I need to finish it! :D

  6. I'm a big fan of The Great Gatsby too. I was lucky enough to read it in high school, loved it, and then had it again as required reading in college. Lots of different perspectives, and you're right, it is better the more in depth you get to go.

    I loved Atonement, the movie, and picked up a copy of the book but was hesitant to start reading it. Did the movie follow it or are they completely different?

    1. Lucky!! Ahh, I wish I had the opportunity to go more in depth! So far (about a third in) the movie has been extremely true to the novel :)
