Seriously Cute Blogger Award

I'm delighted to have been awarded this Seriously Cute award by Golden Eagle. Thank you sooo much.

For this I have to list 5 books/films/TV programs I've read/watched in the past 12 months:

Book & Film: Election by Tom Perrotta. I saw the film and loved it because the psychology of the characters is perfect. When I read the book it was easy flowing, well written and while it had a slightly different ending to the film I loved them both.

TV Programme: The Big Bang Theory. I happened upon this will channel hopping and have become hooked it is a truly Laugh Out Loud experience.

Film: The Adjustment Bureau. Hubby thought this was a superb film. I enjoyed it, too, though I would like to see it again before I pass judgment. 

Book: Never Let me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I'm afraid I found the style of writing difficult. It seemed heavy on the telling with great chunks of exposition through dialogue rather than through showing action. Maybe something was lost in the translation, I don't know, but had I not seen the film trailer I would not have ploughed my way to the end of the book. I hope to see the film sometime soon.

So to pass on the award...

BTW Sorry I've been quiet the past few days. I had to make an emergency dash up to my parents to sort out my mother's health problems. After a procession of doctors and district nurses (and some help around the house and shopping and visiting my dad)  I feel much happier that things are better again.


  1. Now that is one seriously cute blogging award. I feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside now.

  7. I will have to find out more about The Big Bang Theory. It sounds good. :D

  8. You are seriously cute. ;)

  9. That sounds scary about your mom. Glad things have sorted out.

  10. Thank you, Madeleine! How perfectly adorable... can't wait to add it to my blog! Wow, i sure hope your mom is okay. Family is always most important and everyone in the blogosphere can wait. It's cool that way, you know ... like an alternate universe that continues on it's own--one we can dip in and out of at our convenience. :)
    Congrats on your award and thanks so much for passing it on to me. Cheers!

  11. I LOVE BBT. Sheldon is one of my favorite t.v. characters. ^_^ Have a great weekend!

  12. I recently watched THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU and liked it very much, although there were a couple of story details that didn't make sense. For example, if they were immortal, why did they need to communicate via cell phones?? Odd.

  13. I've heard good things about The Adjustment Bureau and have added it to my NetFlix queue.

  14. Aww; that is so cute.

    I didn't know The Adjustment Bureau was a book. I can't wait to see the movie though.

    I hope that all remains well with your parents - always a difficult time .. with thoughts - Hilary

  16. Congratulations on the award, and thank you for passing it on to me!

    I couldn't get on with Never Let Me Go either. I didn't even finish it.
