Another Little Women Movie

little women movie

I loved several of the previously made Little Women movies, the 1933 and the 1994 one.  I also enjoyed the one that PBS put out as a series last year.  I did not see the modernized version that was on the big screen at the end of 2018.  I hope to love this one discussed in the above article, though.  I will keep an open mind waiting for it to come out.  I missed the release date, I think.  I don’t know when it is.

 

Princess Princess Ever After, by Katie O’Neill

LGBTQ list for kids – Pride month

Princess Princess Ever After by Katie O’Neill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this book on the LGBT books for kids list. I checked it out of the library, not realizing it was a graphic novel.

I loved the illustrations and the story, which was about doing what you should do, not what everyone else expects of you. The princesses accept each other the way they are, and help others during their adventure.

Daisy Jones and the Six, by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Daisy Jones & The Six

I didn’t realize that this was written by the same author as The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.  I loved that book, too.

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! It has become a running joke with my family and friends because I carried it around with me for months. I never disliked it, it was just that the world seemed hell bent on not letting me finish it.

The book was written like a Rolling Stones article. Each person involved got his say. It was a different approach to telling the story, but it worked. I loved it.

Out at Breakfast

I was at Breakfast with Daisy Jones and the Six. The server came up to me and asked how the book was, excited when she saw the title. I gave her a vague “it reads like a Rolling Stones article.” She asked if I meant that it just goes on without real chapters and then said she’s been wanting to read it. I was surprised she knew what I meant, but I am guessing she had heard about the book.

Later, after three cups of coffee, she came back and asked me if I’d like more coffee. I didn’t say what I wanted to, which was “sure, if you’d like me to stay here and you have to deal with me bouncing off the walls all day.” I just declined a fourth cup. She offered me water. Maybe she read my mind?

I left there considering bringing the book to her when I finish it. I know where she works, so I suppose I could. I wonder if she’d appreciate it.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The illustrations in the book are great! The story left a little to be desired. Why were the mermaids on the subway? How did grandma know where to find them? I am glad that the grandma handled the situation the way she did, but it needed a few things fixed before I could give it a higher rating.

A Writer’s Nightmare

Actual nightmare

The above linked article is about an author who misunderstood a legal term as part of her research and essentially wrote much of the book incorrectly.

I think it was wrong of the interviewer to wait until they were on the air to deliver the blow.  The book was supposed to come out today, so I am curious about how and if they fixed the errors.  When I looked up Outrages on Goodreads, I see that the release date was moved to June 2020.
