What I’m Reading/Watching 2013

(This is an incomplete holder page. I am behind on filling these things in. Stay tuned)

As of October 2011, I created an index of books I reviewed here. I will continue to list books I am currently reading here, but I will not attempt to write capsule reviews or even to link to them. For that you should check the index of books I reviewed. Movie Reviews will continue to be listed and annotated as before. See also my 2010 Reading/Watching List, 2009 Reading/Watching List, 2008 Reading/Watching List , 2007 Reading/Watching List my previous Sept 2004 to Oct 2005 reading list or my Nov 2005 to Nov 2006 Reading List , so definitely check that out as well. See also my Best of 2006 for a scoop about favorites. See also Writers who have Changed Me. A few remarks. I’m reading several books at a time, and to be honest, sometimes I don’t read all of them depending on the content or my interest. Usually however, it’s been a matter of attention span and what other projects I’ve been doing. Also, you might want to check my favorite novels, and my Amazon.com wishlist. Also here’s an annotated photo of my bookshelf Also, I haven’t read most of these books, but I’ve been setting up Amazon lists of classic Texas novels (100 novels and counting). You also might enjoy reading my Amazon list of Unforgettable Forgettable Novels. I’ve also started adding my book inventory to librarything.com (although I’m allowed to input only 200 titles). At the bottom of this page you will find a list of movies I’ve been watching. What I’m Reading

  42. Terminator 2: Judgement Day

  43. Terminators. The movie “Terminators” is a low-budget knockoff  with no relation to the franchise. Despite the abysmal movie reviews, this is actually a  MUCH better movie than you would expect. Great writing and surprising plot twists.   In fact, this low-budget thriller seems truer to the cat-and-mouse spirit of the original Terminator movie than the rest of the franchise.  This movie is unrelenting, scary, gory and gruesome.

  58. Roman Holiday (2nd time)

  59. The Hairdresser (Die Friseuse)

  60. Dogtooth
  61. Sweet Land
  62. Ladybird, Ladybird, a mid90s British social issues drama about domestic violence and a basket case of a lady. Recommended (because of the issues it raised), but the acting was a bit over the top. Based on a true story though.

  63. Miss Nobody, a forgettable comic escapist corporate fairy tale where an ambitious woman kills off all her competition. Kind of fun, but a total waste of time.
  64. Come Undone. Silvio Soldini
