1. I’ve never read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, but since seeing the trailer for the movie I’ve decided that I must. I didn’t get the trailer. Nothing about it made sense to me. I’m pretty sure it only made sense to people who have read the book. Like that white house. Clearly something is up with that white house. Because I feel like so many people know what that white house means and I don’t, I am going to read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
2. Anna Karenina. I still haven’t finished the book, but have received clarification from my cousin that the ending will do nothing to change my feelings about Anna Karenina (the character not the book); I despise her. So for two hours, I will despise Kera Knightly. I dare Hollywood to turn Anna Karenina into a sympathetic character. No, I double dare Hollywood.
3. Snow White and the Huntsmen and The Brother's Grimm: Snow White. This seems like it might be a Deep Impact/Armageddon situation. I might skip them both, or at least wait to hear which one is the Armageddon of the scenario.
4. I can’t decide if I’m excited to see the movie version of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. The book was fine – I only somewhat agree with Truman Capote when he said about the novel, “That's not writing, that's typing.” I just hope they cast someone amazing as the ‘Aunt’ who always gave him a place to stay after he ran out of money.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower – this is on my to-read list as well. It’s supposed to be quite good. The cast alone is a major selling point. Hi there, Hermione Granger.
