Sunday Post: Books and Movies

Two new books for review/feature:
The Day I Died - William Morrow
A Bridge Across the Ocean - Berkley
And of course, a new library book:
 Cooking for Picasso
E-book bought and my current read - historical fiction set during WWII:
The Orphan's Tale
Movies:
We also got a bit of Oscar fever and went to see Lion last week and La La Land and Hidden Figures yesterday. Manchester by the Sea and Fences are on our list for later. How many of the films have you seen?

And what are you reading this week?

I haven't seen a single new film this year. What is up with that?

Lots of good reading, though...

Well, thanks for adding four books to my TBR list :) They all look fantastic!

We rarely go to the movies... but I really want to see LaLa Land and Hidden Figures.

Cooking for Picasso has been calling my name and I love the cover of A Bridge Across the Ocean. We've been a movie mood lately though mostly older stuff. I've heard great things about so many new movies though that I need to head to the theaters!

I have a young attention needing kiddo so I haven't made it to the movies but hoping to soon!
A Bridge Across the Ocean looks interesting. Thanks for listing it; I'll have to add it to my TBR pile!

I haven't seen any of the Oscar contenders, isn't that awful? Although my movie attendance has been way down over the last year... I'm kinda clueless this year. :)

I haven't seen any of the movies either. We've not been to the movies since before Christmas. I'm planning on reading THE DAY I DIED. I like the sound of it.
