The creative juices are just not flowing this morning. No catchy title for me, sorry! I had a nice relaxing weekend and got to enjoy what could be the last bit of nice warm weather here in Cleveland. On Friday I saw The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I read the book a couple of years ago and found it to be a bit…much. I mean, I enjoy an “issues” book (except for the cancer ones, those are too hard for me), but this one was overwhelming with the sheer number of issues. But that is not the point here. I liked the movie. I loved Emma Watson and Ezra Miller (what a cutie and great in Beware the Gonzo). The book translated well to the big screen-it was intense and moving and hopeful and I hope that the film’s target audience truly get the point. It does get better. Also, it made me a little nostalgic for the days of mixed tapes. Anyone else remember those?
I am mostly still plugging away at the same things I was reading last week…
I was listening to Stay Close by Harlan Coben on Playaway, but about half way through the darn thing malfunctioned so I had to pick something new. I will probably go back and finish it eventually. It was just getting good too! Anyway, my new pick is This Is How by Augusten Burroughs.
I am also rereading Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld for my book club this week. I originally listened to this one and Alan Cumming was a brilliant reader, but I am actually liking the book better now that I am reading it myself. I love the illustrations so much.
I also read iZombie volumes 2 and 3 by Chris Roberson. The story has been moving at a snail’s pace, but things have finally picked up and really hooked me. Which means I am now back to waiting for vol. 4. At least I have the newest The Walking Dead waiting for me!
