Op Shop finds

I have been bargain hunting and I have found some cute things, but I really haven't had the time or inclination to share. Sorry :(
Anyway, yesterday was a very good day and I thought I would share a couple of finds.

The Diving Bell & the Butterfly - Movie

Warning: May contain spoilers!


The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is based upon the book Le Scaphandre Et Le Papillon by Jean-Dominique Bauby. Now remember that - "based upon" because for cinematic effect there are some personal relationships that were different from the book, and also (sadly) some people, including his girlfriend, were incorrectly portrayed and not nicely.

Berlin Syndrome - Melanie Joosten


Today I'm reviewing Berlin Syndrome by Melanie Joosten a young Australian author. This is her first novel and what a fantastic effort. I received this book from Good Reads as a Giveaway, which was great because I was going to buy it anyway. I love supporting Aussie authors and this book intrigued me.
