Tea with My Mom

Lately, I can feel the air changing. My favourite season is fastly approaching and I am savouring every moment. Today is dim and windy, which is the most perfect combination for some tea time. My mom and I have had a free moment and decided to brew our favourite tea and make cinnamon and chocolate chip cookies. We sat down together for a while and talked about everything and nothing. I can't imagine anything better to pass time.

In an other news, I've watched the movie adaptation of The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon, which is one of my favourite reads of this year so far. And I am happy to say that the movie didn't dissapoint. There were some changes but I didn't mind any of them, really. They were understandable, for some things from the book would be difficult to convey otherwise. The casting was absolutely amazing; everyone did extremely well at portraying the characters and I enjoyed every scene. The motion picture was beautifuly captured. Just like the book, it was emotional, clever and funny. I think it has the potential to become a beloved classic one day that you'll put on for comfort in the times of need. I can definitely foresee myself gravitating towards it often. I would one hundred percent recommend reading the book first as to getting the most out of the story, but I also think that both the book and the movie are equally beautiful. It was surely the best book to movie adaptation I've seen in many years...

  1. The Sun Is Also a Star si rozhodne chcem prečítať... Teším sa aj na film, ktorý vyzeral výborne. Navyše, keď čítam tvoje slová, o tom ako veľmi sa ti to páčilo, tak moje nadšenie len stúpa.
    Tak ako vždy... krásne fotky :)!

    1. To moc ráda slyším, milá Kristy. Věřím, že se ti kniha bude moc líbit a film taky nezklame. Kdyby takové byly všechny filmové adaptace našich oblíbených knih, přiblížili bychom se dokonalému světu... :-)

  2. Nádherné fotky, Verunko, jako vždycky :) Docela jsi mě nalákala na film, myslím, že ho za pozdních podzimních večerů zkusím, a třeba si k tomu uvařím i nějaký ten dobrý čaj a mísu sušenek :)
    Měj se krásně

    1. Děkuji mockrát, milá Hani. Taky se už nemůžu dočkat na podzim a plánuji sestavit seznam mých oblíbených filmů pro tuto dobu, tak snad v něm najdeš i nějaké další tipy... :-)
