  1. Best book? I read To Kill a Mockingbird every summer, so even though it’s my favorite, that doesn’t seem to be in the spirit of this post. So I shall choose The Infernals, by John Connolly.
    Best movie? I liked Rise of the Planet of the Apes, as well as Captain America. Being a comic book nerd, I’d go with the Captain, if I had to choose only one.


    best book I read this year. it was really a good one.

    it surely is heart trending. an easy read – yet forces you to think. think really deep. and it tells us of a life we (at least i) cannot even imagine. living with one piece of clothing. moving house with the season. barely enough to eat. such oppression for women. such oppression for men too. samira says the men are not free either. all are confined in a world that dictates that they have to live a certain way to keep up to the society’s expectation. no one is free. not a single person 😦


  3. Best book of the year.. okay, I am going to have to go back to a classic one to answer this question. My answer would have to be “The Catcher in the Rye.” I can think of only a handful of other books that have left such an impression in my life, and because of that, I would say that it is not only the best book of the year, but for me of all time, making it something that I’d recommend every year.


  4. The Help (movie)

    There’s some good things listed on here… it’s cool to see so many different selections… we all have such different taste!


  5. I’m very late to this party, but the best book I read this year was “The Hunger Games”. It’s been a long time since I read a book that I couldn’t put down. I also thoroughly enjoyed “Room” – uniquely written and haunting.
