Be Nice


"Be nice. But not too nice. 
I mean, don't make a religion out of it, niceness."

Mrs Mayhew in One Day

I meant to write another post but time flew by like crazy today.
My Friday evenings consist of a glass of wine (if at all; today not so much), three TV shows in a row and in between breaks a book. 
Miraculously I finished the book. Which one? Just slightly look and read above and then you'll know. A dear friend of mine asked me if I liked it, and when she did I couldn't tell because I had just started reading it. It took me longer than expected, because well, life happens sometimes. But today I finished it. I am happy about it. It's one of those books that speaks to me. However, in all honestly, I don't know if I love it or hate it, or both. I go with love it, but add a little nasty but loving look to it, because really, my mood switched with every new chapter. If you read it let me know what you thought. If not, I'd recommend it.

Apparently the movie is coming out in August. Not sure what I think about it. I am a bit irritated when it comes to the main actress. Then again, I need to see the movie first before I start writing about it. She might actually just surprise me. Hopefully. 

Hope your Friday is and was amazing.
Happy Saturday from me, already!
I'm telling you, time sure flies today!

I read "One Day" for Book Club Bloggers and wrote a review about it. I wasn't a fan, I wanted to be, but wasn't. It was an interesting idea though!

Who is the main actress?!

Hehe you are just like me! When I dun like the actress, I usually get really annoyed and would not watch the film unless I had nothing else to do.

The quote is very meaningful!

Wait what'd the book called? I need to start reading (badly!) but watching way too much TV :S I love that you read in between breaks - such a great idea! Shoot I could get so much reading done that way!

That book is sitting on my shelf waiting for me to read it! I didn't know they were making a movie! I'll have to read it as soon as I'm done with the one I'm reading now. I keep hearing mixed reviews.

Hmm, I haven't heard of that book before. I just finished Water for Elephants and I just loved it. I read it so fast. Then Hal started reading it and told me his summer as a carnie is now romanticized. I'm excited to see what they've done with the movie.

you still need to tell me your thoughts on One Day. It sounds and looks pretty good and if it comes out via a movie - that would be amazing!
