Eleanor & Park

I cannot wait to read this corky book. 🙂 I usually don’t like to read books that everyone else reads but I’ve heard so many great things about it and the quotes are so great makes me want to read it all the more. Plus the fact that is set in the 1980’s. It’s now on my kindle awaiting its turn to be read. 🙂

Books

I LOVE BOOKS!!! The Outsiders is one of my favorite classics and I look forward to reading it again.  The movie is equally amazing.  A new book in my #toreadlist is Women Who Run With the Wolves. I found this book thanks to the wonderful movement of book sharing started by Actress Emma Watson.  I’ve been a book fairy for a while now.  🙂

Sophie and the Rising Sun

Incredible book and movie. It is Devastating that after all the “advances” We Humans have supposedly made we still have the same amount  (if Not More) of Ignorance, Bigotry, Hatred and Racism as before. The movie is now available on Netflix.

Persepolis and The Book Fairies

Persepolis is a brilliant French-Iranian autobiographical animated film based on the life of Marjane Satrapi.  The movie bears the same name and it tells the story of the Iranian revolution told through the eyes of Marjane as a child and into her young adulthood. I urge people to see this film if they haven’t seen it, and to read the book as well. This wonderful website  based in the UK, has gone worldwide and is a Real Treat for book lovers like me. I ordered some stickers and sooner than later will leave a book I have read somewhere on planet earth with the sticker for someone else to find and enjoy. Emma Watson is part of this wonderful movement.

 Someone can win a copy of the book with a personal signature by the actress Emma  Watson. For more details check out the Book Fairies website.
