Jeanne Kalogridis, author of many HF novels, has fallen on very hard financial times. If you can contribute to the cause of helping her pay her rent while finishing her book, awesome. If you can't, help by spreading the word!

I really enjoyed the movie - but I too had an issue with the soundtrack.  I kept thinking "what is all this Jay-Z and Beyonce stuff" - it just didn't fit it.  I was like, hip-hop didn't exist in the 20's.  I thought that everything looked beautiful and I thought they all did a good job.  Leo's face showed so much emotion - especially in the scenes when he was so angry.  It just twitched all over!

I agree!  His expressions were amazing.  I didn't know he had that range, to be honest.  I felt like he was Gatsby, not an actor playing Gatsby.

On my blog you will find reviews of historical fiction books, historical movie reviews, and interesting historical content among other things. If you would like to know more about me, check out the About Me. Feel free to email me at any time at dolleygurl@hotmail.com.

Attention Authors, Publishers, Blog Tour Organizers! I would love to hear from you if you have a book that you would like for me to review. Check out my review policy and then contact me with the pitch.
