10 Reasons You Should Be Watching En Otra Piel/In Her Skin

En Otra Piel. A fantastic gem of a Spanish telenovela currently airing on SBS (as Part of Me and/or In Her Skin) with all the previous episodes available at SBS On Demand. Produced by Telemundo  (an American Spanish-language television network) the basic plot centres around two women – 53-year-old famous pianist Monica from LA and 20-something waitress Adriana from Mexico City. Both die and somehow, through a bunch of bizarre circumstances involving a ‘talisman’, Monica’s soul ends up taking over Adriana’s body (while Adriana’s soul is wandering around lost apparently).

What Should I Watch? Nicholas Sparks!

Nicholas Sparks Movies

Image source: IMDB

It has to be said: I am a big, big fan of Nicholas Sparks. It all started back in 2002 with the movie A Walk to Remember and from then on I was hooked. I’ve read almost all of Sparks’ books, and I religiously go and see the movies as they come out almost annually. I am a total, absolute sucker for the romance, the inevitable illness/death that will come up, and the attractive male leads that get cast. So, for those of you not yet on the Nicholas Sparks train (for this I focus only on the movies), what should you watch? Well, I am glad you asked!
