  1. Sounds great! I’ve just read a really delightful book called The Light Between Oceans by Aussie author M.L. Stedman which I thoroughly recommend. Apparently the film rights have just been snapped up by DreamWorks too.

  2. I’m a great fan of author Michael Connelly, especially of his Micky Haller, Defence Lawyer series. I recently read The Lincoln Lawyer, then found the library also had the film version & couldn’t wait til it came in! It was faithful to the characters, a well written & directed crime/ action tale & fun to watch the text come to life on the screen, especially with Mathew McConaghy in the lead role. Even if you haven’t read any of the series it’s an action-filled introduction to Connelly’s books and characters. I’m wondering if any of his other books have been turned into films???

  3. Some good suggestions here, I like the movies but it’s summer and I am headed to the beach to be out in the sun. My beach reads include Revenge Wears Prada and also Christina Georges The Publicist (thepublicistnovel.com). I guess I just need a chick lit fix this summer!

    • Hi Ashlee, thanks for sharing! Unfortunately it’s the middle of winter here so we can’t share your enthusiasm for beach reads for a few more months. 🙂
