I must apologize for being late with my blog entry this month! My only excuse is that I was spending some time down south in Dallas with my mom for an extended spring break, and when I got back to Chicago, the cold weather simply gave me a big brain freeze.
Since moving to Chicago (where we had SNOW two days ago), I'm always surprised when March rolls around and we still have to wear our parkas and mittens. I grew up in Dallas, so part of me, my inner-Tex-Mex girl, says I'm crazy for living north of the Mason-Dixon line. When I was a kid, March was a time when it *might* actually get warm enough to dip your foot in the pool. Here, the pool is still frozen!
At any rate, I've got news! Wuthering High has been optioned by a movie producer who is interested in making it into a movie. Of course, these things are always a long shot, so there are no guarantees of it actually being made and showing up in a theater near you. Still, it's exciting news.
And this is all because of Zoe, a very astute 13-year-old, who convinced her stepmom to read Wuthering High. One thing led to another, and now it's been optioned! So, a big thanks goes out to Zoe! You've got great taste in books!
Since we're on the topic of books made into movies, what is your favorite? I have to say that for me, it's a tie between Ralph Fiennes' "Wuthering High" and Colin Firth's "Pride and Prejudice." What can I say? I'm a sucker for the classics.
What's your fav?
