Sorry to vent, but how else do you explain a nearly two month absence? You complain and then explain yourself. I'm not 100%, but I'm better, and can say that I've been reading like a fiend! What makes you feel better than reading a ton and sleeping a bit? Not much, in my estimation.
Well, tomorrow night are the Oscars. As most years, I've only seen about half of the Best Picture nominees, but I'm still pretty excited to watch. This year I had the chance to catch: Les Miserables, Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, and Lincoln. From the other categories, I've seen: Anna Karenina, Brave, and Prometheus. It doesn't feel like much at all to me, but you still couldn't keep me away! My apologies for those who follow me on Twitter, as I'm sure I'll be chattering away all evening. I can't wait.
Okay. Until I get back into the book-review swing of things, I'll see you around. For now, I'll leave you with a couple of my favorites. Where would I be this year without Les Miserables?
I also really liked Silver Linings Playbook. I have to say that this scene where the lead actor, played by Bradley Cooper, flips out over the tragic ending of A Farewell to Arms had me laughing a little too loudly in the theater. I might be an English teacher who is supposed to love classics, but who hasn't felt this way about a book a time or two?
Until after the Oscars, I'll be hoping for the best for all of my favorites this year!
