101 in 1001 VI

This has been a great month for my 101 in 1001 list. It started on the very first day, so I got off to a really good start. 

#9: Sponsor a lovely blog
The Pineneedle Collective is one of my favourite blogs. Annika is an absolute doll- smart, funny and darn cute too! It makes me very happy to be able to support her and show my appreciation for her lovely blog. 

#43: Buy a collection of art books
I've bought a fair few art books this month! Mostly because of the exhibitions I went to. I just can't resist buying the exhibition catalogue for every one I visit, even in the case of Lichtenstein, which I didn't like so much! 

#57 See all the exhibitions on my list
I went to see two exhibitions this month- Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at Tate Modern, and Light Show at the Hayward Gallery. Light Show was absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately it has finished now, but I'll be keeping an eye on future shows at the Hayward Gallery. 

#78 Read 14 books
I'm very shortly going to have to raise this target. I've now read 10 books this year and still have another 11 months to go until I reach my 1001 days! These are the books I've read during April- Keep an eye out for the reviews. 

#82 Watch the backlog of films downloaded
This month, after finishing the book of The Virgin Suicides, I watched the film. It's really beautifully shot. Rich thought it was slow-moving, and I suppose it was, but I like that as I don't have the concentration to keep up with fast action. 
We also watched The Iron Lady which is absolutely beautiful aesthetically and quite heartbreaking too. 
Edit: Coincidentally, I watched this film, and added the photo to this post, the day before Margaret Thatcher died. I'm not about to get into the politics of the matter after everything that's been said over the last couple of weeks, but I really did love the film.
After reading One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, I decided to watch the film. The ending is truly beautiful. 
I can't believe how many films I've watched this month! I loved The History Boys. It completely knocked the breath out of me. Beautiful! 

#83: Visit the Vogue Festival
I so nearly didn't make it, but I did! Phew! 


  1. You've been busy! I've wanted to read each book you've reviewed now I want to read these as well.

  2. Love this idea - I want to make a list like this now! One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and the Virgin Suicides are two of my favourite movies :)

  3. damn that's a lot of books! I read one flew over the cuckoo's nest when I was fourteen and it really changed my life, even from such a young age. The movie was great too and I agree about the ending. Such a haunting novel, maybe my favorite (next to Something Wicked This Way comes)

  4. I really like your pictures ! Your blog looks so cute and nice !


  5. I love this idea! And I especially loved the films you picked. All some of my favourites! :)
