Aussie Books and a Bookish Shirt
I have gotten myself two Aussie books:
1. Saving Francesca by Melina Marcehtta - I have heard nothing but good things about Melina Marchetta from bloggers whose recommendations I trust and who has the same taste in books so I'm pretty excited about this one.
2. Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jaclyn Moriarty - I read one of her books A Year of Secret Assignments (see my review here) and I enjoyed it, which prompted me to get another title from her Ashbury/Brookfield books.
|A gift from my sister|
"Never Judge a Book by it's Movie"
Whenever I recommend a book to my sister in which its movie adaptation she has already seen she would say: "Nah. I have already seen the movie version of that book." when I tell her the book is different from the movie in the sense that it's always better. She would just shrug and say: "How different could it be?" And I say it's waaaay different! It's better! I'll be all huffing and puffing...so to save me the trouble, she got me this shirt as a gift. I'll just wear this shirt and point to it whenever we get into this kind of conversation. :D
