One Day

I read this book some months ago, but just saw the movie last night and decided to write about it. Unlike other books that have been made into movies, I was surprised to find that I loved the movie better! Maybe its because I love Anne Hathaway.

The story is of Emma and Dexter. They met during their graduation on July 15, and the story is set every July 15 for 20 years. Check out the plot from Wikipedia if you want spoilers.

I cried while reading the book and when I bawled when I watched the movie. I was sad with the ending because it did not end happily. Well, real life never does anyway. But I love their friendship and the hope that Dexter showed in the end.

I would rate this as good as any Nicholas Spark's novel.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

I finished reading this book while my eldest child was in the hospital. I had so much time in my hands that the book I decided not to read last month became my sanity! It was so good, I had to ask friends to get me copies of the second and third book in the series! Anyway, I also had to watch the original movie, not the Daniel Craig one, and still find it very good.

Anywaym, the story starts with Mikael. He is a writer and publisher of a magazine and he was sentenced to prison for libel. He was then contacted by Henrik Vanger to find the killer of Harriet, who disappeared some 40 years ago. Lisbeth did a background check on him. He was supposed to be writing an autobiography but was really trying to find Harriet's killer. He actually solved the crime, with the help of Lisbeth who also saved his life. And he was also able to get back to the person who accused him of libel. I know I make a crappy review, but this is really a good book so do yourself a favor and read it!

Here Kitty Kitty!

Camera Critters

I have not been reading much lately and I guess it shows on this blog. The latest book that I have read was The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo and it was so good, I had to look for the next two books of the series.

Anyway, my kids were playing with the camera the other week and look at what they snapped! A kitty cat! At first, it was curious and was posing for the camera!
But she was shy a while on, as if saying, "Stop it, you are making me blush."
Couldn't resist uploading her photos here!

Pet Cemetery (Pet Sematary)

One of the books that I have read and which I vow never to read again is Pet Sematary by Stephen King. I read it in college, and I have never touched that book again! I was totally spooked! I can still imagine the characters and I still have nightmares. Anyway, this sign at a zoo reminded me again of that book I was trying hard to forget. Talk about scaring one self silly, he he.
