These are Tasha Harrison’s good things.
Good things to read.
So Much For That by Lionel Shriver. A satisfying novel that makes sharp observations about the injustices of the healthcare system in the US. Sounds heavy but the ending is unforgettable.
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. An unputdownable story about a geisha in wartime Japan.
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. A story about a man’s two wives in Afghanistan who start off as rivals, but who are brought together by their husband’s cruelty.
Good things to watch.
The Bridge. Swedish/Danish crime series with suspense-filled plot and great characterisation.
Mad Men. TV series set in the 50s and 60s in the world of advertising on Madison Avenue, New York. Again, brilliant characters, slick script writing and retro everything.
Defiance. A film starring Daniel Craig as one of four Jewish brothers who flees the Nazis and helps several hundred Jews to survive in the forests of Poland (I think it’s Poland) until the war is over. It’s a true story, so very inspiring.
Good things to use.
Goodreads.com A good place to read or write book reviews.
Pinterest.com Handy for putting together mood boards or scrap books of images. I’ve used it to create mood boards for two of my novels.
Animatch – A simple game of matching pairs on my iPhone. I think it’s good for exercising the memory part of your brain!
