Bronte, Charlotte - Jane Eyre
Mantel, Hillary - Wolf Hall

August Books
Dunant, Sarah - The Birth of Venus

September Books
For the first time since I started this resolution, I failed on my book per month. I am still reading Anna Karenina and it is proving to be quite the task. I began it in August and I am currently 56% of the way through. So I'm going to say that even though I didn't finish  a book in September, I have read quite enough to safely say that my resolution isn't broken. When I'm finally finished with Anna, I plan to read a mindless, quick, best-seller to cleanse my brain!

Currently reading:  
Tolstoy, Leo - Anna Karenina

Movies (no resolution; just to keep track)
The Artist
Underworld: Awakening
The Hunger Games
Wrath of the Titans
The Avengers
Mirror Mirror
Men in Black 3 
Magic Mike
The Dark Knight Rises
