Teaser Tuesday (January 14)

My teaser:

“Why don’t you want to take my name? he asked in a voice so genuinely hurt she almost changed her mind on the spot.
Sachs is just the name I grew up with, the one I’m used to. I’ve worked hard to build a careerand Sachs is the name I’ve used along the way. Is that so hard to understand?

From 38% (Simon & Schuster 2013) of Revenge Wears Prada.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Musing Mondays (November 11)

My Musing:

This is a repeat post for my new followers
Last night, as I was trying hard to fall asleep, my mind drifted off to thinking about movies that have been made out of books… and my trail of thought landed on all the ones that I’d not read or seen. So, nor have I read these books, I haven’t even seen the movies. Yet.

1. The Chronicles of Narnia

2. Twilight

3. The English Patient

4. The Bourne Series

5. The Godfather

6. Wuthering Heights

7. It’s a Wonderful Life

8. Emma

I have no intention of reading 2. From the rest, I have to get through the books first, so the movies have to wait. Having said that, I’m not a massive movie person. Here are some of the movies that are based on books that I have enjoyed. In all cases, I’ve read the books first

1. Harry Potter series

2. The Lord of the Rings

3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

4. Gone with the Wind

5. Rebecca

6. A Beautiful Mind

7. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

8. The Devil Wears Prada

9. Bridget Jones’ Diary

10. A Clockwork Orange

11. The Kite Runner

12. To Kill a Mockingbird

13. The Other Boleyn Girl

14. Memoirs of a Geisha

15. Lolita

16. Like Water for Chocolate

17. The Wizard of Oz

18. The Picture of Dorian Gray

19. The Bridges of Madison County

Musing Mondays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

Describe one of your reading habits.
Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
