Three Things #Tag

Following Norrie’s lead from—readingundertheblankie—because who wouldn’t, right? I’m doing the Three Things #Tag.

Three Read Once and Loved Authors

— Louise Penny, of course, I love her and the Three Pines series.
— Laurie R. King, most definitely, I started with her Kate Martinelli series.
— And in the last year, both Kathleen Kent and Steph Broadribb.

Three Titles I’ve Watched But Haven’t Read

The Hunger Games: Never read any of the books but did see the movie on the TV.
The Shawshank Redemption: Saw the movie but didn’t even know there was a book. Go figure.
Sphere, by Michael Crichton (thanks Norrie) no, I haven’t read any of his books, but seen quite a lot of the resulting movies.

Three Characters You Love

— That’s got to be Steph Broadribb’s kick-ass hero, Lori Anderson.
— Also, Kathleen Kent’s Betty Rhyzyk from The Dime!
— And new to me is Mallory Bright from The Locksmith’s Daughter, who is really kicking britches in a man’s world of Elizabethan England!

Three Series’ Binged

— That has to be the Inspector Gamache/Three Pines series from Louise Penny, where I read at least seven in the series one after the other. Like chocolate, you just want more.
— Eh, and that’s it recently.

Three Unpopular Bookish Options

— I dislike ebooks. I just cannot get into them. Give me a paperback each and every time.
— Books into movies, while there maybe one or two that can and do work, for the most part, no book should be anything less than a mini-series on TV. Much better idea.
— Amazon …

  1. Ooooo!!! Shawshank Redemption is one of my favourite movies and books as well <3 They really got it right in the film. It's so rare.

    Did you like Hunger Games? I loved the books, but dreading the movie. I think i might hate it 😀 Just cuz i usually end up hating movies.

      If the book is, as you say, as good as the movie was, then I just might get a copy out from the library and have a read.

      The Hunger Game, as a movie, was okay, nothing great. I think I would prefer the book(s) as to get a better grasp and depth on the characters, because they seem so superficial up on screen.
