Shakespeare Unbound

When the weather turns warm,
I am drawn to
my favorite pieces
by Mr. William Shakespeare.

(Luckily, their are some fantastic adaptations on film
for when I run out of summer reading time...)

A MidSummer's Night Dream

Oh, I love the fairy queen, Tatiana...
and I adore Michelle Pfeiffer's portrayal.

Romeo & Juliet

Verona, family feuds,
some of the best articulation
of young love.

Much Ado About Nothing

A sunny Tuscan story
with betrayal, love,
& family drama.

Shakespeare In Love

Sure, perhaps this one is
not written by Shakespeare,
but ever since I first saw this movie-
it's been one of my favorites.

Summertime & Shakespeare.
It's a blissful combination.

What books do you love to read
(and re-read!)
at certain times of the year?
