But at least I'll mostly put it behind a cut...

The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books listed here. Bold those books you've read in their entirety, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish or read an excerpt.

Read more... )

SCORE: 31/100 books read and 29/100 started or read excerpts. I should finish more books...

Hey [ profile] darkprism?


Not really, but you did suggest that I read The Crimson Petal and the White, which I did.

Loved the plot, loved the character detail...

and then the ending leaves you hanging.

Boo. Boo. Boo.

was Dogville. Very long, and very different. I loved it, although it's definitely a difficult movie to love. This is not a happy movie, but I would highly recommend it, if you haven't seen it. Feel free to discuss in the comments.

Also, finished reading The Anubis Gates. Starting on Tori Amos: Piece by Piece.
supremegoddessofall: (Default)
Foreign stuff today. Water Lilies and La Vie En Rose.

Also, finished reading Seven From the Stars (which was stupid), and started reading The Anubis Gates.

Re: Waking Life.

Finished I Know This Much Is True. I really enjoyed it. Liked it even better than She's Come Undone. Very nice character development, great interpersonal dynamics. The last 2 chapters or so had me crying.

Watched Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Can I just say how much I love Johnny Depp? He definitely deserved the Oscar nomination.
supremegoddessofall: (books)

Currently working on the second Twilight book.
supremegoddessofall: (reading)
Books recently accomplished:

Twilight - Not as bad as I was expecting.

Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles: A Novel, by Margaret George - Very interesting historical fiction about *gasp* Mary Queen of Scots. Rather long and overly detailed in places, but a good read, and I'll probably check out some of George's other historical fictions at some point.

Dead Witch Walking, by Kim Harrison - I love pulpy "monster-based" alternate realities. Great world with witches, vampires, werewolves, fairies, etc. This is what the Anita Blake novels originally looked like before Laurell K. Hamilton became obsessed with furry porn. I'll definitely be reading more of these and will actually be starting book 2 of the series next.

Movies recently accomplished since the last time I posted about them:

The Producers - Funny as hell, but a bit overdone in places. I swear, Matthew Broderick does not age. Definitely good for a laugh, but I don't know that I would consider it a classic.

Jesus Camp - Like I needed something to remind myself that Evangelicals are scary as fuck. You should watch it, though, on the principle of "know the enemy."

Spellbound - About the Scripps National Spelling Bee. They follow 8 kids through the process. Very nice, I enjoyed it a lot.
