“Black for hunting through the night
For death and mourning the color's white
Gold for a bride in her wedding gown
And red to call the enchantment down
White silk when our bodies burn
Blue banners when the lost return
Flame for the birth of a Nephilim
And to wash away our sins.
Gray for the knowledge best untold
Bone for those who don't grow old
Saffron lights the victory march
Green to mend our broken hearts
Silver for the demon towers
And bronze to summon wicked powers -Shadowhunter children's rhyme” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Heavenly Fire 🍁
1. Current read? Pad Elemenata - Rušenje poretka by @imagination_full_of_books_
2. Book recommendation for holiday? Something short and sweet, maybe some contemporary? Anna and the French Kiss?
3. Book turned into a movie you liked? Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, Nerve (I disliked the book but enjoyed the movie very much)
4. Book from your 2016 TBR that you’re reading in 2017? Argh, I suck with TBRs! Apparently I cannot stick to it - I buy a new book or see a very good review of some book that’s been lower on my TBR list and I’ll put it on the top of my current #TBR. No wonder many books from my should-be-2016th-tbr-pile ended up on my 2017 reading list - CK, Clockwork Princess, CoHF... (or 2018 for some of them, ups 🤭) 🍁
I watched Murder on the Orient Express two nights ago and, while the cast was great, the acting too, I had some problems with the script. It was tooooo...funny? Melodramatic?
Maybe because I recently watched the version from 1974. Maybe because it didn’t made fun of Hercule Poirot. Maybe because I love watching old movies. 🍁
Anyways, have you watched it? Liked it?
