Chasing Harry Winston

by Lauren Weisberger


First two pages and I was thinking Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda but to be fair with Ms. Weisberger, tales of witty well-heeled New Yorkers running the rounds of career, romance and love post-Sex and the City are easily put into pigeonholes. Then again, benchmarks aren't excuses.


I arrived at the last pages of my copy hoping that the good half of the novel was torn away by the housekeeper. Nobody got fired and I'm done hoping.


Really, the only chase here is me hunting for a plot.


The Call of the Wild

by Jack London


The Secret Garden

by Frances Hodgson Burnett


It's impertence to give my take on these classics. For one thing, you couldn't go wrong with them. If anything I should chastise myself for being soooo late with these reads. Hmmm... how about:


1. cutting down on porn

2. watching jyesebel

3. listening to Bea Alonzo's album

Bry!

There's a distance of a hundred time zones in between our preferences for reading material, but we suck on the same... love for the written word. And suck is used like a verb in love.

I've seen The Secret Garden on HBO, and although its all that and some more on the family values, I'd still see, and read, The Secret Window.

You can't go wrong with the classic... and though dyesebel could be considered as a clasic filipino character every filipino gay men would want to be--as suppose to Ariel the little wishing to be part of that world--it stops there... just a character...

serious ito...

I loved The Secret Garden, from the book, to the film and even the tagalised cartoon from way back in the 90's...
