Day6: A book that makes you sad

There’re many from writers who had followed realism at the end of 19’s and the beginning of the 20’s century and between wars literature and after. I love Guy Maupassant, Charles Dickens and other classics but I love writers from my native country from that times as well. They’re very hard to translate but they’re shining diamonds among those well-known big names everyone knows. Most of them were doctors or lawyers or bank clerks and had an excellent observation eye. Those short stories or novels make me cry and they are still actual although more than 100 years passed.

DAY 3: Favourite series

My Top 3

G. P. Taylor daughter’s health condition became worst, he was writing these exciting series for her, so he dedicated all of his time for her – no time for writing

    I love children’s and youth literature, mainly that’s what I’m reading and finding pleasure in ( I’m a sucker for very well or wierdly illustrated ones) and than classics, it’s really hard for me finding a contemporary adult book which will get me hooked until the end. I don’t know why but it looks like most of recent writers found the same writing recipes. Fortunately there are some exceptions.

    I feel that they made Professor Snape more likable in the films than he is in the books.

      Oh I found him more likeable in books and they didn’t do him justice in episode 4 in the movie.

    After the revelation in the latter books, I do not consider Snape a villain anymore.

    “Always”.🥺

    When I was younger, my dad forced me to watch this and it’s so good!!!

      It’s brilliant 😁 especially when Nietzsche loving Dwayne wishing to be army pilot finds out by playing with Olive that he’s colour blindness and how grandpa made fun of the ridiculous children beauty contest with the strip dance he’d taught Olive. 🤣

It confirms me that even if I’m into Korean culture I was born in the right place, I need as my independence as I need air to breathe. Interesting take on Korean dating and more from BTOB’s Peniel.

When I saw Jung Soo- young for the first time the resemblance with Kate Hudson slapped me hard and I couldn’t understand why she doesn’t have more opportunities in South Korea.

Day 15: Least favourite book adaptation

There are many but this ones stick out so loud that I wanted to throw rotten tomatoes on screen while watching. The second one I didn’t even finish. These books are amazing and I understand it would be hard to adapt, rather make an animated movie from it!!!

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

Day 14: Favourite quotes from any movies

Dead Man by Jim Jarmusch. Cinematography is mind blowing and there is where I’ve met William Blake for the first time 😉

Nobody: That weapon will replace your tongue. You will learn to speak through it. And your poetry will now be written with blood.

William Blake: If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is: infinite.
