More Goals Completed

I've been trying to steadily complete tasks and I've managed to complete several which I will post about in separate posts. This post will include the books and movie tasks I've managed to complete.
This book was nowhere near as good as I was expecting. Having somewhat of a style crisis myself the prospect of reading about a frumpy woman who discovers a book that will lead to elegance and improved style was very appealing. There wasn't enough of that in the book, and it was depressing. I completed the book on September 16th.

For guaranteed tender romance I know I can turn to Nicholas Sparks. While this book is not as good as some of his others, I enjoyed it and finished it in 2 days, it was a very fast read for me. I completed it on September 19th.
P.S. See my main blog for a photo of me and Nicholas Sparks at a book signing!

I'm fascinated by Parisian culture and I looked forward to reading this book. It was about a 6 or 7 out of 10. I wasn't irritated to be wasting time reading it, but I definitely am glad I didn't buy it and I won't reread this book in the future (as I do if I really enjoy a book). I completed this book on September 27th.

#54 Movie: The Evening
I will be reading the book this movie was based on, but when the film was released I was so excited I decided to rent it while my husband was out of town. I was very disappointed. I actually fast-forwarded with captions on because the film dragged on and there wasn't enough to keep the attention. I also hope the book makes the story more clear. I watched this movie on October 1st.

#33 Movie: The Nanny Diaries

I have read this book and was looking forward to the movie when its release was postponed to help it for award season (since The Devil Wears Prada received some nominations the year before). It wasn't necessary to wait, this movie really doesn't stand a chance. It was fun, but really didn't compare to the book. I did enjoy seeing how some Manhattan mothers raise their children with access to fancy schools, etc., and I will definitely watch it again, but it didn't live up to the hype surrounding it.
Five more tasks completed! 92 to go!
