• The Smiths How Soon Is Now?

    If you follow me here on my blog or on Spotify, you’ll know I’m a huge 80’s music geek.

    One of my favorite is a band called The Smiths, and well how can you not like Morrissey? With both Morrissey’s voice and the impeccable guitar strumming genius of Johnny Marr, you’ve got the perfect dynamic duo.

    My favorite song from The Smiths is How Soon Is Now? If you get a chance to read the lyrics, it’s even better. It’s poetry.

    I hope you enjoy this video from the archives. Tell me what you think.

    Happy weekend everyone!

  • October Classic Literature

    Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

    I first read this novel for book club and I loved it! I thought it would be perfect for October since an adaptation of this novel will be on Netflix beginning Oct. 21, 2020.

    This novel was a quick and suspenseful read for me. The story is about a young woman who meets an older, wealthy and charming man named Maxim de Winter. They fall in love, and marry. Maxim’s past and previous marriage to his former wife Rebecca comes into question. Everyone in town loved Rebecca and seem devasted at her untimely death.

    Maxim’s new wife is constantly being compared to the well-loved Rebecca. She even has to endure the cruelty from Rebecca’s maid, Mrs. Danvers. As the story begins to unfold, we discover that Rebecca was not all that great and that she hid important details about herself to her husband, Maxim.

    I won’t reveal the full synopsis of this novel, or what happens in the end but it’s a must read!

    I’m looking forward to seeing what Netflix’s adaptation will be like compared to the novel. Let me know what you think!
