Les Misérables & The Great Gatsby Movie Adaptations: Out this December!

December 2012 will be a totally blessed month for movie adaptations of classic literature. Both Les Misérables and The Great Gatsby will be premiering in that festive month! Wohohooo, who’s excited? I know I am.

Les Misérables is one of my favorite books of all time; you can read my review of it (in Indonesian) in this post. I have never read The Great Gatsby, but I will in five years. 😀 However, if you want to read the review of The Great Gatsby, please read this post (again in Indonesian) written by my friend, Fanda.
