Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

Day 14: Book turned into movie and completely desecrated

I wouldn’t say ‘desecrated’ but not even the brilliant Saoirse Ronan can’t save this one. 😣

Day 13: Favorite author
Children literature writer
Jostein Gaarder

His works dealt with complex topics but retained its storytelling fit for kids. I’m not sure why I think kid’s books must be simple

So I’m racking my brains why Dongjae of Forest of Secrets is so familiar. Google search led me to APAM’s Dr. Ye. How could they be the same actor? 👏👏👏

With a number of beanies rewatching Forest of Secrets and gushing about it, I started watching it last night.

I read the recaps before but seeing is quite different even if I knew how it ends. 😀

Day 12: A book you love and hate at the same time

I enjoyed reading this, but hate that it romanticize the stakerish, obsessive behavior of Edward towards Bella; and how she disregards the warnings.

    To my teenager self, this series is definitely very romantic. I probably felt a twinge of discomfort or two at some scenes, but it didn’t exactly bother me. And then a few years later I looked back at it and couldn’t stop shaking my head at my naive young self.

      Right? I squealed along with my batch mates, but now I’m older, I see how problematic the love stories in the series are (let’s throw in Jacob-Esmee imprinting).

    Same. But I’d post Eclipse instead. LOL

Day 10: A book that reminds you of home

The setting of this book is quite different from what my hometown is but the sense of community is spot on. John Grishman is adept at painting these towns.

Day 9: A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving

I read chic-lits at the start of the quarantine as these are light and fluffy. This was the one I took a while to pick up.

    I want to give the writer a standing ovation for creating such a fun script. I laughed so hard at that scene that my siblings rushed to see what happened.

        Ahhhh hahaha I totally missed that reference! Ugh! I would have laughed my head off if I didn’t. But I noticed MY’s softening expression while GT was shouting his lungs out with his confession

    These two are my favorite couple of the year. I love their bickering and quirkiness. Sera is so weird but I secretly wish I had such a funny and lovable friend in my life. Gong Myung is stoic and boring at first but I love how communicative he is to Sera once they officialize their relationship. And their kisses are soooo hot!!! I’m blushing thinking about them ^o^

Day 7: A book that makes you laugh

She makes me laugh on her interviews so it’s no brainer that her autobiography does that, too.

      Same here. Her life is fascinating. I did not know she was award winning in the theater world before Twilight.
