Winners . . . and Heathcliff

Happy release day to my dear friend Gayle Forman and her latest, Just One Day!

The randomly selected winners of yesterday's giveaway are Sara of Forever 17 Books, whose favorite romance last year was Huntley Fitzpatrick's My Life Next Door and Vy, who listed three: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry, Something Like Normal by Trish Doller, and another vote for My Life Next Door. (A LOT of you love Huntley's novel!) Sara and Vy, please let me know here in the comments if you have not yet received an email from me.

So . . . if you're looking for a good love story, the comments section of that post is a great place to put together a list. And speaking of romance, I've always been more of a Jane Eyre girl than Wuthering Heights, but HOLY BALLS DO I WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE RIGHT THIS SECOND UNGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH:




Soooooooooooo pretty.

Happy sigh.

I love that they chose black actors—for the first time on film!—to play Heathcliff. In Emily Brontë's novel, descriptions of him leave plenty of room for interpretation ("a Lascar" and a "dark-skinned gipsy in aspect"). How wonderful to see something NEW onscreen. It doesn't hurt that the elder Heathcliff, James Howson, is quite handsome. ;-)




What films are you looking forward to this year?
