And the winner is ................................................................
Don't you just love award season. I am a big fan of all award show and just have to watch them, much to the despair of my husband. I have sat and enjoyed The Golden Globes and The Baftas and I am raring to go for the Oscars at the end of the month. I have a feeling though it will be Slumdog Millionaire sweeping the Oscars, with Mickey Rourke making a most welcome comeback and Kate Winslet hopefully finally winning an Oscar after six nominations.
I am hoping to get around to reading a few of the winning Oscar adaptations this year. I definitely want to read The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald, as well as The Reader Bernhard Schlink and Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates.
Have you read any books adapted into award winning films?
This week has been a slow reading week, but both the books I have been reading were quite long. I started the week reading Pirates! by Celia Rees and finished the week reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, which I will review next week. Though I will tell you now it was fabulous and I can't wait to get my hands on the second installment City of Ashes.
This week is half term, so things should ease up a little, no really early mornings, so I hope for lots of late night reading.
This week I hope to read:
The Noodlemaker by Ma Jian
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing by M.T. Anderson
The Hours by Michael Cunningham
So check back in the week for my reviews. Hope you are all having a good reading Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by.
