Top Five - With a Vengeance
Top Five Books I Am Currently Reading
5. His Dark Materials, by Philip Pullman. I actually read the first two books rather close together, but the final one is like pulling teeth, I swear.
4. Rubicon, by Tom Holland. I've been reading this for almost a year now, but I'm okay with that since it's better suited to take in only a small bit at a time.
bYou know how some people read romance novels as comfort food? Mysteries are my comfort food of choice when it comes to books. I need at least one in rotation at any given moment (right now I have at least three)
2. The Blind Assassin, by Margaret Atwood. I started this book months ago, but I couldn't bring myself to continue reading it while I was feeling even a little bit distracted - which I was at the time - it deserved my full attention. This will be my next commute read, because on my commute right now I'm reading...
1. The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. It really is the perfect choice to read on the subway, because it is so engrossing that I'm completely focused on the story and the travel time just flies. Good thing I get off at the end of the line.
Top Five Prettiest TV Seasons EVER!
5. Life s1
Maybe it's just because I had forgotten how damn pretty it was until I started capping it this weekend on a whim, but as soon as I started I just knew it had to take Dexter's place on this top five list. (Sorry, Dex, please don't kill me.)
4. Ugly Betty s1
Whoever designed the set for Mode deserves a freakin' award! That's 90% percent of the reason I watch this show, right there.
3. My Name Is Earl s1
When I thought about this particular top five, MNIE immediately sprang to mind, but I started to wonder if I'd perhaps exaggerated the prettiness of this show's first season, but once I started capping I realized OH HELL NO! I'm of a mind to move this up a notch on the list actually...
2. Pushing Daisies s1
I'm not sure what's going on here, because for some reason I can't make these caps as pretty as I know they can be. I get a sneaking suspicion I chose the wrong caps for this, too fiddly and all that. TV prettiness is really best illustrated with clean, colorful caps, not once showing off the intricacy of the set design. I guess you'll just have to take my word for it - it's extremely pretty.
1. Veronica Mars s1
Yep, still the prettiest season EVER!
And bonus - I could just cheat and use the caps I used for the top five prettiest VM caps. Score! </font></b></div>
