Super Psyched for Salinger!

Hey everyone! I can’t believe that June is over already! This is the first year that I don’t have the luxury of being a student on summer vacation, so needless to say, my slow progress through my to-read list has been getting me down. But I’ve got about 70 pages left of Catch-22, so I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

And as much as I’m enjoying Heller’s novel, it’ll be nice to spend the summer with some beach reads. Two of my favorite chick lit authors have released new works recently, Meg Cabot with Awaken and Sophie Kinsella with Wedding Night. I also have about five romance novels and three other pieces of fiction waiting for me on my shelf. So I’m motivated to enjoy the heat, throw on a swimsuit, and lay out by the pool with a good read!

Of course, when fall approaches I still have something to look forward to! I happened to catch this movie trailer in theaters before watching “The Bling Ring” (Side note: Terribly dull film! As much I like Emma Watson, this bust isn’t even worthy catching on Netflix. Save your money!).

This is a sneak peek into “Salinger,” a documentary on the mysterious author behind Catcher in the Rye, which will be released in theaters on September 6th:

Obviously, after reading Catcher in the Rye, Franny and Zooey, and “A Perfect Day for Bananafish,” I’m super psyched for this film. I remember hearing the news of Salinger’s passing and I felt so despondent over the fact that he left the earth with such influence and yet so many secrets.

I hope that it reveals new insights about his life as a recluse, especially since the trailer has built up so much suspense. Fingers crossed!

So how many of you are also super psyched for this documentary? Share your love for Salinger in the comments!
