Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
We dropped by Dangwa, a flower market where you can get really affordable flowers, yesterday. My mom was in the mood to make the house look pretty. We ended up getting these for only P1000 (20 USD) or so:
I know I’ve already featured Robin McKinley’s The Blue Sword in a Shoot That Book post before but I couldn’t resist doing it again using those roses. Robin McKinley is one of my favorite authors and she has two Beauty and the Beast retellings: Beauty and Rose Daughter. Roses are pretty important in both stories and I love how both of the covers go well with the bouquet:
Beautiful, right? Also, I thought I’d take a picture of this – some of my Starbucks tumblers doubling as vases:
I love how flowers brighten up any day. Have you read Beauty or Rose Daughter? I recommend both titles to fans of fairy tale retellings. I enjoy reading retellings so feel free to recommend your own favorites.
