Books To “Fall” Over

Fall is finally here! Autumn, one of my favorite seasons, has finally arrived. And although there are many pleasurable activities you do in the fall, one of my favorites, of course, is reading, preferably outside. There is no better feeling than curling up in a reading chair or a nice bench under a tree with a good book. The right book can either make you have an enjoyable reading season or a dull one. To make sure you have the former, here are some great book selections that go great with the upcoming cooler weather:

Libba Bray Responds to Female Lord of the Flies

Last week , Warner Bros. announced another film version of the classic novel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding. But instead of an all-boys who survive a plane crash, the cast will be all-female. That is not even the worst part. The two people who are to helm a production dealing with the psychological complex relationship of girls by two men.

Is Hollywood that dumb or are they that desperate they want to let me know they are really out of ideas and they just grasping at straws? Continue reading “Libba Bray Responds to Female Lord of the Flies”
