March BookPage

True to norm, I picked up the March issue of Books-A-Million's BookPage.  What isn't true to norm is I didn't get over here & add to my I-wish-to-read-list (like how I combined the 2???  So clever am I!).

Squeaking it in before month's end:

Almost Home by Pam Jenoff
His Other Wife (Deborah Bedford)
Cleaning Nabokov's House (Leslie Daniels)
Mr. Chartwell (Rebecca Hunt)
Exposed (Kimberly Marcus)
Bringing Adam Home (Les Standiford)
Undecorate (Christiane Lemieux)

Better late than never, right?

He Loves Me

scene from "He Loves Me," a Lifetime Movie starring Heather Locklear

I turned this movie on to keep me company while I worked...  it was immediately intriguing so I engaged the TiVo & went back to my task.  I did pretty good staying focused, considering...  see, I wasn't watching  exactly, but I started to keep up with what was going on, and pretty quickly became fascinated with the idea behind the story.

So last night I made the time to snuggle in & truly watch, beginning to end.  I love an unexpected twist - the moment of dawning when the puzzle starts to fit together to create the big picture, even tho a piece or 2 is still yet to be found.  This story gave me that, but sadly, the movie doesn't do the story justice - I feel like there is so much more lying beneath... I hade the feeling that the movie must be based on a bigger story, that this was the condensed version.  It so has the feel of a Mary Higgins Clark or Joy Fielding novel!  Excitedly, I searched for the bigger, deeper, more involved story, but, unfortunately, in vain.  There was nothing to be found.   

Darn!  I think it would be fascinating read.

adding to my list...

Picked this up the day I found about it...  I subscribe to Jane Friedman's Writer's Digest blog and when she announced it's release, I broke my vow & swung by the book store to grab my copy.  And it's sitting in my "to do pile" collecting dust at the moment.  BUT I am going to go thru this.  It's the kick the pants motivater that I think I need.
