Here are some books I recommend you add to your reading list, because it would be a crime to see the upcoming movie versions prior to reading the book:
The Help was my favorite book of the last few years, and probably one of my top ten books of all time. I plan to re-read it before the movie comes out. (My friend Lisa says it’s a “modern classic”, and she’s brilliant and an English teacher so I believe her.) My friend Tina blogged about it here.
While viewing The King’s Speech (highly recommend!) my friend Cheri and I saw the preview for Jane Eyre and immediately decided we would read the the book then see the movie together. Talks are still ongoing as to whether the males in our lives can be charmed into attending the movie with us.
