My Summer TBR List

3 summer months and 5 books on my To Be Read list...will I make it? We'll never know if I don't try, right!?
Here's to you my list:
In Bloom by Matthew Crow
By now you are more than aware that I mainly choose books basing my decision on their covers...well, not this time! This is one of the most touching plot I've ever read and it will be probably the first book of the list I'll read.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
This will be my first book from this author and the mainly reason I'll be reading this is because I saw it will be soon a movie with Sam Caflin and Emilia Clarke...I know it's a floppy reason!

Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Allegiant cover design by @ofallthevoicesinmyhead on Tumblr
If you read my reviews (Divergent & Insurgent) you'd already know what I think about the previous two books and I'm curious to know how the whole Tris and Four's world started!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Likewise "Me Before You" this novel entered my TBR list just because I read somewhere that Tim Burton is going to make a movie out of it...and it'll starring by Eva Green. Fair enough for me!

Socrates in Love by  Kyoichi Katayama
The plot here is similar to "In Bloom" right above: it's about teenagers with leukemia, but from the reviews I read, Socrates in Love is a sweet teenage romance with and heart melting finale.

So what do you think of my list? Do you have any suggestion on what I should read first or on other books I should include?

Have a gread Sunday everyone!

Angie Harmon vs Anne Hathaway

It's been a while since our last "Who Wore It Best?" post, it's time to get back on tracks! 
And we are doing it by presenting you two actresses with the same initials, who happened to wear also the same floral skirt by Vilshenko.
Actress Angie Harmon wore it first back in January for ELLE's Annual Women in Television Celebration. She wore just the skirt with a white blouse and laced up Loubotins nude shoes.
Actress Anne Hathaway wore the twin set top and skirt at "Grounded" opening night party on May, popping up some colours with bright pink shoes.

Both the beauties stayed simply, wearing not so many jewels. (winning choice if you want my opinion!)

Who do you think wore it better:
Angie Harmon or Anne Hathaway?

Novel Of The Week: Beautiful Entourage by E.L.Tood

These past few months I’ve been reading tons of books’ trilogies or sagas, so starting a new one wasn’t on program…I’m glad I didn’t notice that Beautiful Entourage by E.L.Tood was a 5 books saga ‘till the very end of this novel. 
It’s amazing and if you want to know why, keep reading! [SPOILER ALEART]

Movie Review: The Longest Ride

The Longest Ride Movie Poster
I’ve decided to proclame this week Nicholas Spark’s week here on the blog! 
With no reason, since there’s no movie/book coming out soon, but I’ve lately finished reading “The Choice” and saw “The Longest Ride” so I thought: why not?
And we are going to start right with the movie “The Longest Ride”, currently in movie theatres (at least here in Italy). 

The Longest Ride (2015) diected by  George Tillman Jr. With Scott EastwoodBritt RobertsonAlan Alda, Jack Huston, Oona Chaplin, Lolita Davidovich and Melissa Benoist.

I’ve seen it with my sister, which is no news if it wasn’t that it was the first time we saw a Nicholas Spark’s movie where I didn’t read the book and she did. Outrageous!!

As in all movies of this author, the scenography and the soundtrack were outstanding. I loved them! 
Needless to say it, the movies is set in....Nord Carolina, yeah!!
But you can read my opinions right after a brief plot!

Movie Review: Fury

Fury Movie PosterFury (2014) directed by James Wan. 
With Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Peña and Jon Bernthal.

Brad Pitt fights Nazis again! 

But do not aspect him to be fascinating and cocky as he was in Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds”. This movie is an incredibly cruent and truthful  representation of what war (in any era) actually is: scary, violent and spares no one!

Maggie Gyllenhaal vs Olivia Palermo vs Crown Princess Mary of Denmark

Oh lalà! Not two, but THREE contenders for today's #WWIB...and one of them is Royal!! These three gorgeous ladies have one thing in common: they both wore (two of them last year, one last week!) this purple floral printed Burberry Prorsum dress.

Check them out!
The first who wore it has been American actress Maggie Gyllenhaal while attending (in May 2014the New Museum Artist Dinner hosted by Burberry. She styled it very minimal in both the make up and accessories.
Far away from minimal was instead Olivia Palermo, who wore the dress while in Australia for the Chadstone’s Icons Of Style campaign event in August 2014. She also wore a belted scarf and laced up sandals.
The last (and Royal) one who wore Burberry was Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, pairing it with nude Valentino stud shoes at the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the 1915 Danish Constitution.

Who do you think wore it better:
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Olivia Palermo or
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark?
