I finished only 2 books this week (egg on face!). I must learn to balance blogging time, writing time, reading time and real life time better lol
- Sweet Valley Junior High #1: Get Real (review part 1 and part 2)
- Vampire Kisses (review)
Oh how I love this film from start to finish. I love everything about it but of course the love story of Josie "Grossie" and her teacher is epic. Michael Vartan and Drew Barrymore had chemistry that clicked from the first time they glanced at each other and there was the perfect amount of angst to make the happy ending that much more savorable.
Josie Gellar and Sam Coulson
- From the film "Never Been Kissed"
Who doesn't love a classic fairytale? Especially one that was as gripping and riveting and amazing to watch as this TV series was. I still revolt thinking that they killed off Catherine's character and thus ended the legend of Beauty and her Beast, Vincent, but what they had together will go on forever and ever in my mind. That was a beautiful love story, the best Beauty and Beast adaptation of all time IMO.
Emma and Knightley. How beautiful a pairing that was. You could tell from the beginning that their banter had lots of underlying emotion behind it, you just had to wait and see when they (and Emma, in particular) would wake up and realize it. Emma is one of my favorite books and Emma is my all-time favorite Austen heroine while Knightley is another Austen charmer I'd like to friend lol
Thanks for visting my blog as always!
I simply adore Jane. I don't have a crush on her but I love her anyway lol She's level-headed, she's sweet, she's thoughtful, and she's a stablizing influence on her naughty sisters heeh I love the way she guides and nutures without overpowering you. I don't usually like the goody-goody characters but Jane is wonderful, especially as she is portrayed in the Colin Firth version of P&P by Susannah Harker. In fact, Harker is just how I imagined Jane lol (see picture below)
Okay the first character I will spotlight this week is Jane Bennett-Bingley from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Yes I know, everyone loves, loves, LOVES Elizabeth Bennett but in all honesty, I cannot stand her. She takes the term self-involved to new heights. I know that's part of the story but she never really recovers from it. If you think about it, Darcy does all the changing and growing in that relationship. But I digress ... lol
