First let me start by saying I love books. LOVE. And there is one book that I read this summer that I must recommend.
The Secret Of Everything by Barbara O'Neal
I laughed. I cried. I couldn't read this book fast enough! I devoured it like French fries during pms. Seriously, one of the best books of my summer.
Okay so that is my book recommendation. Short blog post. Right? Quick. To the point. Hmmm....Perhaps not.
Because I have a secret to share. A dirty little secret. Most likely not so well kept if you read my blog... And yes, I know this is the Girlfriends Book Club and I most definitely don't want my membership revoked...buuuut...this time of year I not only think of new books, children returning to school (thank god!), new fuzzy sweaters (even in LA), pumpkins, and apple cider but I also think of new tv.
Now I realize I have perhaps an *abnormal* fixation with television and film. (Okay obsessive.) But this compulsion is all in the name of research because not only do I write books but I also write for tv and film.
There I've said it. Admitted my secret. I moonlight. I walk both sides of the street. Work two angles. Serve two masters. And let me tell ya' it ain't easy. But it sure is fun!
A couple beauties I am looking forward to:
$#@ My Dad Says
I also look forward to watching what my favorite characters (and their writers) cooked up over their summer hiatus.
I'd love to hear if you too have the dirty little secret of not only being an avid reader but an addicted television viewer. What shows are you looking forward to seeing this fall?
