I Watched...
Gladiator with Russell Crowe (an old favorite)

Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley (one of my top five favorite movies)

Pitch Perfect --- why did I wait so long to see this funny, light-hearted, feel-good film?  I loved it: immediately after watching the rental copy, I bought it on DVD and also bought the soundtrack.  I'm in love with this music!

Divergent with Shailene Woodley and Theo James.  I liked it but didn't love it.

Book of the Month...
I loved every page of this heartfelt, deeply moving book.  It was inspirational and such an emotional read. 
Check back soon for my review of this unforgettable novel.

How was your August?
