New Coffee Table Book

Was Marilyn Monroe ever out of date? I don't think so. Her legacy became more hype than ever when 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of her passing. Last year was also when Smash, a new musical-drama series following the creation of a Broadway musical called Bombshell (a.k.a. Marilyn Monroe) from the initial idea onward, premiered on NBC.


Smash is like a grown-up version of Glee but with a much more sophisticated script and tons of Broadway-worthy numbers. A couple of episodes into the Season One, I was completely hooked by all the songs and the storyline, so much so that I decided to redeem some Amazon points for a new coffee table book - Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis.

The book is packed with mesmerizing photos of Marilyn together with euphemistic writing about her life, easy to read and eye-pleasing.

So I think now I am finally completely happy with the coffee table book stack in my living room.

Do you watch Smash?
