I finished Rebel Angels by Libba Bray. It was fun. I liked that the girls each struggle with their own personal issues and its not all about the adventure. Its a quick fun read with some darker tones that give it a bit more lasting power in my head. I think the third book comes out next month.
I also went ahead and borrowed the BBC series Fingersmith. They stayed so true to the story, and I appreciate that. The casting was quite good too.
Everything is Illuminated did not stick so closely to the story, In fact, I'm still aggravated that they changed the grandfather's story. Its the most moving part of the book! Read the book if you are at all inclined. It will make you giggle in between making you sob.
Why did it take me so long to watch Brokeback Mountain? I adored it! Beautiful and heartbreaking and perfect. I need to stop avoiding movies just because I find the hype overwhelming. Somedays its much deserved.
Blood Diamond was good. I thought the love story in it was unbelievable and unnecessary, but the main story was well told and important. It was hard to watch in some parts but not unbearable.
I promise that I have been crafting! Its just that its dark when I leave for work and dark again when I get home which makes for miserable picture taking. That plus a horrible never ending cold that didn't help. I will manage some pictures this weekend.
