2014 Thinks To Do  

Okay, so big plans for 2014 include:

- rewatching the Ron Perlman/Linda Hamilton Beauty and the Beast as part of a year-long thing with Stephen Aryan and Liz de Jager. We might even have a weekly Discussion Blog about that week’s show. Anybody who wants to can join in!

- (re)reading all the Guy Gavriel Kay novels, of which there are now 12, one a month in publication order, again with weekly discussion. We’ll be starting with THE SUMMER TREE in January, with a goal of reading 4 chapters a week. The first discussion post will be here on January 7!

- perhaps (re)reading the Barbara Hambly Benjamin January series, of which I now have all the books (in hardback no less! squee!) and which are among some of the best books I’ve ever read. I don’t know if I’ll start this in January, but I think I’ll do it.

- working my way through the To Be Read Shelf, with the goal of reducing it by about 70% before buying any new books.

Of course, I have no idea when I’ll write, with all that stuff to read and watch… :)

Oh look, there's a copy of the (Roc trade paper edition) of THE SUMMER TREE right there on my shelf. Almost as though it was waiting for an enforced re-read....

So, hey, semi-random, but Ebonlock 'forced' me to watch a trailer on YouToob for an upcoming French film version of La Belle et La Bête starring Vincent Cassel (of course, because everything French stars Vincent Cassel :) that looks gorgeous (and pinged me as a live action version of the Disney film, haha. Whups.)

But! Since you adore the TV show, I thought I'd mention it.

I'm aware of its existence, though I haven't watched the trailer yet! I'm looking forward to seeing it!

I admire your goal... I am too weak to be able to do that.. books are my crack, and every Tuesday, I am out trying to score.
