What I'm reading Wednesday...

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel by Deborah Moggach

I started this one yesterday.  I haven't seen the movie, so I am happily reading without any preconceived notions about the characters.  I hear the book is really different than the movie, so I guess when I finish this one I will have to watch it to compare.

This one fulfills the 'book set in a hotel' category of the 2017 Reading Challenge.

  1. I haven't read the book but LOVED the movie. Have watched it a few times. So many great actors and a charming story.

  2. I saw the movie first.. then read the book.. I think either way works... there is a sequel to the movie Something original like the second best marigold hotel? which isn't as good (in my opinion) but still worth watching!

    1. I always want to read the book first if I can just so I don't have the actor's face in my head while I'm reading.

    1. You mean you have time to read now that the big house jobs are done and you just have maintenance to keep it tidy while on the market? :) Hope you enjoy the book. I'm almost done; should finish tonight.

    1. I’ve read reviews that the book is grittier…more sexual harassment type behavior and more racism and racist language. I read all day and am almost done with the book. I will look for the movie as soon as I’m done, so I’ll let you know.
