1. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen: As I’m typing this, my bookmark is smack in the middle of this book; it’s hard to read when you’re getting swept off your feet every couple of pages. Rapid pulse. Sweaty palms. Shortness of breath. Fluttering heart. Swooning. I CAN’T HANDLE THE ROMANCE!!! S.D’s latest is as good as The Truth About Forever, which I consider her best.
I liked Along for the Ride so much that I paused to make a collage. Collage=devotion.
2. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner: Mems, I got this because of you! If you say Gen ties with Nat Eaton in hotness, I’m already half-in love with Gen already.
I’m dying to see Young Victoria staring Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend. US Release date Nov. 13, 2009. If I had to pick, Victorian England is my favorite time period; it’s creepy, repressed, erotic, a perfect setting for ghotic ghost stories. I think I’ve read more books set in this time period than any other. When I was in high school, I watched a multi-part documentary on Victorian England, another on Victorian exploration, and another on the life of Queen Victoria.
In other words: I’m jumping up and down like a caffeinated monkey excited about this movie!!!
Aren’t the costumes gorgeous?
I’m seriously lusting after Ben Barnes.
Especially when I found this sinister looking picture.
I’m strangely drawn to actors who could pull off the ‘sexy sinister’ face. Note to self: must dedicate an entire post to ‘sexy sinister face’ in the future. I’ve got a few actors in mind, but I’m open to suggestions.
The trailer is amazing!
