The Shining | Stephen King

These dresses were featured in the current #Camp exhibit at #TheMet and when I saw it, my King brain swooned...even if it is just for the movie. 😆💁🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

That Summer: A Novel | Lauren Willig

When at the Met in her younger years Julia thought: “Sometimes she would imagine herself taking up residence in one of those rooms, like the runaway children in From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.”

I realize you must all be thinking: that porch again?! I am back to work Tuesday so will have less porch reading time. 😥 so relief is in sight!

The Center of the World | Thomas Van Essen

The tagged book is a novel about the modern-day pursuit of a rare and fantastic JMW Turner painting that the artist created while in residence at Petworth House in Suffolk. Both the art caper and the historical-fiction sections ask the reader to imagine a glorious (and alas totally fictional) painting that would render the viewer awestruck.

It boggles the mind.

Swe_Eva I‘ll believe that - first time I saw a Turner “in the flesh,” I was pretty gobsmacked. 👍🏻 2y
Dogearedcopy @Swe_Eva This last time, I rounded the corner, and the two Turners that were mounted in the gallery hit me like headlights! I audibly gasped! #TheMet 2y
Swe_Eva @Dogearedcopy The pictures of his paintings are NOT a good representation of reality! 😁 I had a similar reaction first time I saw a Rembrandt in real life - I suddenly realized why he's considered a master, something images of his work doesn't quite relay. 2y
