Just finished American Beauty for the 30th time. I love that movie. It makes me appreciate life and people...it's just so good.
Reading Divergent and not particularly liking it. Even for a young adult novel it just seems so simplistic and watered down and the lettering and spacing are huge. I looked it up and it's rated for ages 13+ ...which is really surprising. At age 11 and 12 I was reading things like The Hobbit and Citizen of the Galaxy, and the young adult novels I do remember reading like the Unicorn or Redwall Series had considerably more to them in terms of vocabulary and actual body. It's the snob in me talking, but I really hate dumbed down books. And I think I'm disliking this one even more than 50 Shades of Grey...if that's even possible. Still crawling my way through SK's IT but it's really good. I read so much SK, I often feel like I've been to Maine, even though I haven't...I really need to remedy that!
