The Great Gatsby Trailer

All right. Bring it on. Tell me what you think. Are you gonna see it as soon as it comes out? What do you think of Leo and Carey as Gatsby and Daisy? I'm a bundle of emotions. Definitely going to see it. Not sure what my response will be. But as of now? Tentatively excited.

  1. I was really against this until I saw the trailer, but I might be sucked in now -- it actually looks really good, and my Gatsby nerd just can't resist!

    1. Nicole, I feel the same way. The Gatsby nerd in my simply can't resist.

    1. Suey, exactly. That part makes me nervous. Am I up for Gatsby intense??

  3. Hmmm...Hmmm...

    I thought about it. NO.

  4. I think Leo will be a great Gatsby.

    (I do love Baz Luhrmann, which probably affects my judgment.)

    1. Livi, I think he will, too. I'm hit and miss with Luhrmann, but probably more hit than miss so there's that.

  5. Okay I have to admit something. I've never read The Great Gatsby. BUT but, this trailer made me think I MUST do so before the movie comes out. It's the first thing that's ever grabbed my attention enough to make me want to read it. I love his version of Romeo & Juliet, so I'm hoping this will be a win as well, though I'll wait for the DVD.

    1. Heidi, oh you should! It's amazing and just very readable.

      I love his R+J, too. Really love it.

  6. I never properly discussed my obsession for Fitzgerald's male characters, I absolutely adore them (especially Dick in Tender is the night)...my problem with this movie is Baz Luhrmann, I think a director like Sam Mendes would have been perfect. Leo is goood, maybe too angry for this role

    1. Ari, now this is interesting! I didn't know that about you. I smell a blog post in the offing perhaps?

      I think Leo's gonna be great, but I agree, he did look a bit angrier on the whole than I picture Gatsby. Hm.

  7. It looks good, but did you see that it's going to be in 3D? What's with that?

    1. Rebs, yeah, I did catch that. The notion is laughable. Gatsby in 3D. Hopefully they'll have a regular option. *fingers crossed*

  8. I LOVE Leo. I am so excited for the movie. Although, TBH in the trailer, Carey looks kind of flat to me.

    1. April, *highfive*. I was thinking the same thing re: Carey! Which is weird cause I normally love her. Daisy should not be flat. Guess we'll see.

  9. I'm on the train! It's been forever since my read, and I should probably do it again. Who in their right mind could deny Leo, a Jack White soundtrack, 1920's fame & fireworks, and a Duesenberg (even if Leo & Toby get a little off their rocker with emotion)?

  10. So cool! Looks sumptuous - Luhrman (sp?) really knows how to make the 20s visually stunning. Great music, and I love Leo. Who's Carey Mulligan then? What's she been in before?
    And my sister was commissioned to make some props for the film, so I was going to watch it for that anyway!

    I read the book years ago, during uni - I remember that I found the prose of the first page amazing, but have never been able to remember ANYTHING about the story. Completely forgettable, I thus thought. So I got myself a copy a while back to re-read. I'll have to do that before the film comes out.

    1. Shannon, it really is something to behold. I first saw Carey Mulligan as Kitty in the 2005 Pride & Prejudice. Since then she's been in quite a bit, including Never Let Me Go and An Education.

      Your sister made props for the film?! That's awesome.

      I'd be interested to hear your thoughts if you do re-read before seeing the film. I'm tempted to do the same.

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Angie's Best Books of 2018

It is the last day of the year. Are you with me? We made it this far. I think we'd better keep going. I always enjoy arriving at this final post of the year so much. I love seeing all of your lists and all of the books and words and hearts and monumental efforts that gave you life this year. That helped get you to this point. With me. I have felt rather keenly these last 365 days how in it together we are. How we have to be. And I am grateful for you. For each of you who leave comments and send recommendations and write and read and push forward into the darkness. I'm so grateful for you. 
And so here I leave my best books of the year. It's a whopping 28 titles, guys. Twenty. Eight. I haven't had a list that long in a handful of years at least. That is something to smile at. A record of a year well read, indeed.
