After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

Book-to-Movie Review: Atonement

S and I went to see Atonement last night, based on the Ian McEwan book of the same name. It was both beautifully depressing and depressingly beautiful. James McAvoy and Keira Knightely's performances were amazing, as well as Saoirse Ronan's performance as the younger Briony. Everything came together to make an astonishing movie; the cinematography, the score, the scenery, the performances, the direction... the movie deserved every award nomination that it received. Worth watching when it comes out on DVD (March 18, for those interested).

according to the extra features on the DVD, the director tried to stick to the original novel as much as possible

Good to know. I just picked up the book and plan on reading it this weekend.
