You guys, I have seen the cover for G&G–and it is GORGEOUS! Seriously, it’s like they were able to see inside my head and replicate exactly what I was thinking of when I wrote the book. It’s THAT good.
I love the models they found and the expressions on their faces are just perfect! Even the way they’re sitting is exactly right.
I love it. I want to print it out, put it under my pillow, and fall asleep with it there. No kidding. I keep pulling it up on screen, just to stare at it longingly.
But…here’s the bad part. I can’t share it yet.
So, as much as I’d love to go into Alona’s smirk and Will’s fabulous cheekbones…I can’t. Because you would have no idea what I’m talking about. Yet. And that’s just not fun. 🙁
But I’m so very excited I just had to share that news. So, I’m sorry for the tease and thank you for your patience! 🙂
–Thanks to an article on Time.com (scroll down to #2 on the list), I went out and bought a movie called Carriers. I’d never heard of it before, but it has the new Captain Kirk in it (Chris Pine) and that alone was enough to raise my interest. And you guys? If you’re into the scary, post-apocolyptic (but no zombies) story thing, this is the movie for you. It was incredibly well done. What I enjoyed the most was the idea that maybe survival isn’t everything, which is kind of what they’re implying. You live, sure, but at what cost? Your humanity?
It actually made me cry when it wasn’t making me jump out of my skin.
Plus, there’s crazy drunkeness, breaking into creepy abandoned condo buildings, stealing cars and many other things we’d all probably do if the rest of the world disappeared.
–Did you watch the Golden Globes on Sunday? I was so excited to see RDJ win for Sherlock Holmes. And his speech, in my opinion, was the best of the night. I must admit, I was also thrilled to see The Hangover win. And not just because I adore Bradley Cooper, though I do. That movie was the best of the summer, in my opinion. It was refreshingly non-PC, borderline offensive in some places, and cringe-worthy at times, but also laugh till you cry funny and an interesting take on storytelling. To that point, I would argue that, structurally, it’s set up like a mystery, which is quite different and one of the things I really liked about it. Have you seen it? Would you agree with that statement?
–And finally, the new show on the CW, Life Unexpected, was really, really good. Originally, I wanted to see it just because it stars Shiri Appleby, one of my Roswell favorites. But then I learned more about the story and that only increased my interest. And darn, if it didn’t come through and meet or exceed my expectations. Like I need one more show to watch, especially on Mondays, which around our house is referred to as “Castle-day.” You can check out what Mo Ryan, one of my favorite TV critics, had to say about the show here.
Woohoo, look at me go! Two posts in the same month! 🙂
