"I think at the end of the day when someone asks you “what’s your favorite book?” you kind of want to give a very intellectual and smart answer, maybe something written by Dostoyevsky, Kafka or Proust
But you know that your favorite book is not the one that had you thinking the entire week for the goddamn meaning of the blue curtain.
Your favorite book is the one that has you awake at 5am because there’s no way you can put that book down, because you can’t wait to talk about it with someone, because you cry and laugh with the characters.
Your favorite book is so worn out but you won’t buy a new one because it means life has passed and no matter how good or bad your life has been it’s always there for you. Always."
favorite period dramas and biopics: Gladiator (2000)
The general who became a slave. The slave who became a gladiator. The gladiator who defied an emperor. Striking story! But now, the people want to know how the story ends. Only a famous death will do. And what could be more glorious than to challenge the Emperor himself in the great arena?
