The Easter Meme

I'm having a quiet and peaceful Easter. Catching up on some study after a huge week of stuff that I couldn't get out of.

Anyway, it's a nice quick Easter Meme from Sunday Stealing today.

Which is good, as I'd like to get my tute paper for the week out of the way.

Good answers. You're not growing old yet, but you are growing older quite gracefully I think.
I loved The Girl on the Train. I thought it was so well written - the prose all the way through and the depiction of Rachel and her life spiralling out of control - unputdownable. The end was a bit overblown but they always are in this genre. Great book though - stayed with me awhile.
Atonement was a great film - loved it.

So many great movies! I love your choices.

I liked Harold Fry, I thought that an interesting book. And now I must steal the thing about pixies ... and say that often.

Excellent movie choices. I love The Princess Bride.

Bev Sykes said...

I keep forgetting "The King's Speech." Wonderful movie.

By coincidence I am cooking a roast lamb tonight. Be sure to stud it with garlic first!

I love Little Miss Sunshine, too! And I love that you have a passion for red lipstick!
