A discussion of the books Tom Hiddleston has likely read. A place to appreciate the intellectual side of our favorite actor.
Shall I add Ben-Hur and Me Before You to my ever-expanding list of books somehow related to Tom Hiddleston? Or is that premature?
As per request, I have added a Book List page to the blog. So far it only has books that I have posted about on the blog so far, and books I plan to post about on the blog in the immediate future. But I will continue to update it and make its scope much more extensive.
Yes anon, I absolutely do plan on doing this. I’ve done a certain amount of research for this blog, including reading all of his twitter looking for book mentions. For now I will make I list of the things I’ve posted about so far. But your request has given me the necessary push to start working on writing up my more extensive research. Thank you. :)
I added an about page to my blog, you guys. Check it out if want to read about what my blog is about.
Hello, anon. Sorry I took a long time to answer this, hope you’re still around. For everyone else, I got this in response to my post about which books were in Tom’s tweet of a picture of a pile of JG Ballard books. Do you happen to know what they were, highrise-movie? There are two I can’t make out.
If I were compiling a JG Ballard reading list, and let’s face it, I am, I would definitely add Crash and Empire of the Sun, because they have been made into famous film adaptations. highrise-movie also has a cool post about JG Ballard film adaptations. I didn’t know about the second two before.
I would also add The Drought because it seems to be part of a kind of “trilogy” of three books including The Drowned World and The Crystal World which deal with different kinds of apocalyptic scenarios.
Thanks a lot for your input, anon. Would you like to write me a post about Ballard? You definitely know more about him than I do at this point. So far I’ve only read High Rise and skimmed the wikipedia article about him. I plan to read more of his work, but it will take me some time to get around to posting more about him.
I want to try to encourage all of you (my lovely followers) to send me your thoughts on any of the books I have posted about, or even anything I haven’t yet posted about, and I will post them on the blog. I’m only one person, and my posts aren’t that long, so there’s certainly more to say about any of the books I have written about.
Here’s my current JG Ballard reading list:
The books I can make out in Tom’s tweet:
Rushing to Paradise
The Atrocity Exhibition
The Drowned World
The Crystal World
Miracles of Life
Added for reasons noted above:
Empire of the Sun
