I've been kind of in a library slump (again) and didn't get anything for a while. But, suddenly, my holds are back in action. Here they are this week:
The Beacon at Alexandria by Gillian Bradshaw
The Cardturner by Louis Sachar
Darklight by Lesley Livingston
Iron King by Julie Kagawa
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
Son of Shadows by Juliet Marillier (again - I swear I'll get to it this time!)
Harry Potter #5-7 by J.K. Rowling (on audio, we WILL finish this challenge if it kills us!)
I also got two for review:
We Shall Overcome by Stuart Stotts
Manifest by Artist Arthur
And since I spaced it last Saturday, I'm adding my A Bit of Me(Me) post (hosted at There's a Book) today (and probably another this Saturday - won't you just be sick of me and my personal info).
This week, we are talking about our favorite movies. I'm kind of sad to admit that my husband and I don't watch many movies - at least not new ones. I thought it would be fun, though, to look at how my favorites have changed over time. I used to be the kind of person who would obsess over a movie for a while and then find a new one to obsess about. My first favorite movie (that I recall) is:
Yes, Sleeping Beauty was the movie I would beg my parents to get every time we went to the rental store. I've watched it a few times in my "old age" and realized - it ain't that great. :)
Next, I moved on to the "I adore this cute movie character phase"
I would watch Newsies and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers over and over again. To this day, I can still quote, sing, and probably dance both movies. I was in love with Jack and Davey (and Spot) from Newsies and I probably picked a different brother to love each week from Seven Brides.
Then, I went through my classic book turned movie phase, which lasted up until a few years ago. During this time I adored:
Actually, I still love most of these ones and would consider Pride and Prejudice and Lord of the Rings all-time favorites.
And, for kicks, one of my more recent favorites is:
So, there you have it - my tastes over the years :)
Got a favorite movie to share or something good you got at the library?
If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage
