  1. I loved the Jane Austen Book club and The Time Traveler's Wife! What did you think of them?

  2. StephanieD: Hey there. :) I cried at the end of Time Traveler's Wife. The chemistry between Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams was good. Well, Rachel M is one of my favourite actresses and I've always enjoyed her movies.

    As for the Jane Austen Book Club, I loved how there were so many characters involved in the story and not one of them was left out or given less attention. They were great!
