2010 MOVIES AND BOOKS


In total, I saw 190 movies. For my end list, I was counting only movies watched for the first time in 2010--those movies totaled 108. My goal had been 50, and when I reached that, 100. So, I made that goal :)

My favourite movies out of the 'first seen in 2010' list:
(long list, haha, but it's really hard to narrow it down :/)Collapse )

For books--and again, I was only counting books first read in 2010--I had originally et my goal at 30 since I'd only made it to 26 in 2009. However, I reached 30 and upped the goal to 50. In the end I only managed to read 47, but I am incredibly happy with that...somewhat becaue:
A) I also read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at one point (but I'd already read it before)
B) I read some graphic novels and comics as well; since they were fair mixes of words and pictures I didn't feel they 'fit' into a book
challenge
C) I read, for the first time, Cell and Under the Dome by Stephen King--both of which were fairly long hardcover novels (although maybe not the longest book(s) I've ever read)
D) 47 is pretty damn close to 50 anyway :P

Annnnnd from book_memes 
List your favourite (and/or least favourite) top ten books of 2010
  1. Cell by Stephen King
  2. Tommyknockers by Stephen King
  3. The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  4. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
  5. Kilter: 55 Fictions by John Gould
  6. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey
  7. Shatter by Michael Robotham
  8. The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson
  9. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
  10. Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh

List your favourite (and/or least favourite) books of 2010 by genre

List any books or authors that you read during 2010 that you'd recommend
I (obviously) recommend Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Michael Crichton. I've been a fan of King for awhile, but only recently became a fan of the latter two. This year I also really got into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle thanks to watching the Sherlock Holmes movie and the new Sherlock series, and immediately went searching my libraries for any SH books I could find. Surprisingly, the one Conan Doyle novel I am recommending here is The Lost World. I loved all of the SH stories, but this is just one of those stories has stuck with me.

(Just one) book I've read this year that I (highly) recommend:
Cell; This book. Zombies, but not zombies. And the whole cell phone thnig was just amazing. The ending really surprised me, but in a way it just screams typical SK ending. I loved this novel a lot. I remember pulling it out of the school library and thinknig, "Shit, this is huge," but then I sat in a corner of the library all through lunch and a spare reading it, took it home after school, and just kept reading it. It was too big to take back to school the next day, but as soon as I was home I was at it again. And finished it. Basically, it pulled me in and I just couldn't let go until I was finished. And yeah, it was that type of book were at the end you're thinking, "That's it?" and wishing there was so much more to read.

I'd rec more but I'm really sick and tired but Cell was my favourite out fo the lot so I felt the need to write something for it :)

One other (tiny) challenge I was trying was to read 100 short stories. I almost didn't reach 100, but thanks to finishing up Kilter: 55 Fictons (as in, 55 short stories) by John Gould yesterday, I managed easily :)

And, of course, music.

it's 2.40am -- now going on 3.15am by the time i post, which shows just how stupid i am at html'ing xD --  but i wrote fic for the fist time in like, ever. it's the black donnellys, though. i miss that show. they need a second season. i mean, hello ginormous cliffhanger... but! my fic is continuation of all that. a 'what could happen'. except... if there ever is a second season, i don't want this to happen.

spoilers for hostage and the ruinsCollapse )

okay. first chapter, i guess you'll call it. jut to test the waters. see if anybody cares for it or not. ya know, i really want dokey to die. he creeps the fuck out. seriously. -- and uh... did dokey die on the show? lol. that would be so important for this story. but... i can't remember if he did or not...

and... i checked for errors. but i'm going blind. and it gets worse at 3am, so... see any errors, tell me please :)

title: the story so far
characters: currently: joey icecream, some lawyer dude who ain't really important, a scumbag cop, and tommy donnelly (on the phone)... but the other brothers will show up, most likely in the next chapter
rating: pg
warning: character death. violence in later chaps?
disclaimer: nothing i mine. and i'm poor.
summary: And knowing Tommy and his brothers, Dokey would also soon know that Helen Donnelly did not deserve what he did to her.

fic!Collapse )
