It's time for Link Love, where I share my favorite bookish news from this week. Happy reading!
You know I enjoy a good list and Goodreads has rustled up a good one, naming some big film adaptations to kook forward to in the coming months. I am especially excited to see Murder on the Orient Express, Alias Grace and The Disaster Artist.

Kazuo Ishiguro has won the Nobel Prize for Literature! I only started reading his books a few years ago, but was impressed with his restraint and ability to create a moving, unsettling story with a very calm, quiet style. Also - confession time! - I think he is the only Nobel Prize winner I have actually read. If you are looking for a place to start reading his work, i would recommend Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day.
