Well, about two weeks, technically. I just finished my screenwriting class, and lord, let me tell you, I’m so glad. I love writing, I really do. But, screenwriting is just not my cup of tea. Especially writing a short original film. Don’t get me wrong, I have great respect for screenwriters. They truly are the MVPs of entertainment where it’s concerned, but I’ll just stick to writing novels, thanks.
Now, since we’re coming up on August, I’mma hit y’all up with my August TBR a couple days early.
1. When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger. This is a continuation of The Devil Wears Prada, which I did not like, but this book I am in love with! Only 20% in and I’m here for all of it! I loved The Devil Wears Prada movie, but when I read the book, I was extremely underwhelmed. Same for Revenge Wears Prada. But, you know what they say: 3rd time’s a charm.
2. The Disaster Artist by Greg Sestero. Obviously, this is the book that the movie is based on, where James Franco and his brother play Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero. This is Greg’s personal story from the time he met Tommy, throughout the journey they took together to make The Room. The best worst movie ever made. And I’ve already seen The Disaster Artist movie and it was absolutely fantastic, so I’m looking forward to this one!
3. Parting Shot by Linwood Barclay. This is a book after the Twenty-Three trilogy and I’ve been meaning to read it forever. Also, Linwood is my favorite author behind Stephen King, so I definitely just need to go ahead and get on this one since he just released another book July 24th.
I may add more to this list, and I may have more free time this month in school than I did last month, but we’ll just go ahead and assume the worst and be surprised if I get past these three!
