Thought I'd give Darcy's challenge a go as I really need to get back into reading - I have a massive pile of books and I need this nudge to get on with it. The arty bit happens when create a piece of art, in any form we like, to the book we've just read and reviewed. The review and a picture of our art will be posted on here (on our own blogs) on the 25th of each month. I'm expecting most of mine to be in the form of art journal pages but at this stage, who knows?
We are to choose/read 12 books, 1 a month. Here are my 12 (in no particular order):
The Ringmaster's Daughter - Jostein Gaarder
Life of Pi - Yann Martel
The Best of Times - Penny Vincenzi
Eat Pray Love - Elizabeth Gilbert
Rebecca - Daphne Du Murier
The Pickle King - Rebecca Promitzer
A Vintage Affair - Isobel Wolff
Mind Chi - Richard Israel
Safe Haven - Nicholas Sparks saw the trailer for the film tonight at the cinema and it looks brilliant)
Beautiful Creatures - another trailer I saw at the cinema this evening - the glimpse of cinematography looks fascinating, strange but oddly beautiful. Could end up being another Twilight type yawn but we'll see.
Stargazy Pie - Laura Lockington
When God was a rabbit - Sarah Winman
The first book I'll be reading is Penny Vincenzi's 'The Best of Times' as it's the biggest so I thought I'd go for it while I'm enthusiastic. I'll have to get my skates on to blog and create the art on the 25th though.
