Cheryl, who has been writing online about films she loves for at least seven years, has two new blogs. The first blog is films I love reinvented for the blogging age. I’d definitely recommend going to the site and reading her recommendations. Cheryl always has a different take on films, highlighting the best bits of the film — the best scenes, and the best quotes. She never reviews a film she doens’t like, so you won’t have to put up with any condescending, pretentious film-buff banter. Her reviews are always straight-forward, give you a great sense of that what the film is about, without giving so much away that you feel you’ve already seen the film.
Cheryl has also just started another blog: excerpts i love. She’s basically taken part of her approach to films — pulling out the best quotes from a film — and applied it to the books she’s read. I met Cheryl when we were both working at Book People many years ago, and I can guarantee that her taste in books (and quotes from those books) is excellent. Check out her blogs. I hope that you get as much enjoyment from them as I do.
