My nightstand stack got a makeover today after a friend kindly pointed out that I (foolishly out of form) have not included any female authors in my Keating is Reading posts. So I'm moving a Pessl, Toews, and Savicevic up on this list to correct the error. Watch for more detailed posts on these books, coming soon. Thanks @lash0319! #readmorewomen#books#allmypunysorrows#adioscowboy#nightfilm
Winter Full Moon over Tokyo. One of my favorite aspects of working as a cinematographer in Tokyo was access to the 1600 ISO colour film stock, which at the time was twice the speed of what was available where I lived, in Singapore. I spent most of my off-set time, after prep, exploring locations with my still camera. Fortunately, there was a full moon. Even the bright displays of Shinjuku and its surrounds could not obscure the brilliance of the moon floating over evening shoppers and strollers-by.
'Sovereign, Deadly, Perfect.' I think this is my first time reading a novel with this formats. It add creepiness and the originality. I can say that this book is full of nonstop adventure, mystery, and suspense. I'm always at the edge at my seat when reading it. I love that I feel like I'm with Scott, Nora and Hopper investigating the case.
One of the things that I love about the book is that I actually learned a lot from it. It's very rarely for me to learn something about life from mystery/suspense fiction. I learn about taking chance, to push myself to do something out of my comfort zone, that that is okay to be different and to be passionate with your job. And there are so many quotable words here, i wrote many precious quotes from this book.
