The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge is hosted by Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic is: my “go to” book or movie for a pick me up.
I’m not much of a re-reader, so I generally don’t reach for an old favorite when I’m down. However, there is one book that never fails to make me smile and, when I need a seriously good laugh, I always go for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Even better is the audiobook, read by Stephen Fry. His terribly posh voice reading such ridiculous words is a huge win.
Movies, on the other hand, I can watch over and over again. My top three favorites for distraction are The Princess Bride, Tombstone, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The first is just a fun, feel-good movie. The second is all about justice, family, and friendship. The last is a huge chunk of my childhood and a movie I can quote from beginning to end without the movie even playing.
Honorable mention to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. I love Henry Cavill and this movie cracked me up.
