Spring Favs and Recommendations

deer in annihilation

This is a bit of a Spring Favorites/Spring recommendations tag. I did a Winter one here and hoped to do it seasonally. So yeah for keeping up. I know technically there’s a bit of time left for Spring but honestly once we hit Memorial Day it’s summer (and I’m already looking forward to Fall.)

I’m combining books, film and television I’ve seen recently. The tag is originally by Zarriah Rose over on Youtube.

Best Book(s):

 

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows & The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

Runners Up: Circe, The Astonishing Color of After, The Humans & The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

I enjoyed them all but I feel like Erotic Stories and Loneliest Girl are especially good reads for Spring/Summer.

Best Movie:

Annihilation

Annihilation will actually be available in a couple of days. I thought it was more than worth a go.

An Old Favorite:

the avengers team up

Infinity War sent me into a tailspin of let’s watch all the old ones. Or at least, lets watch my favorite parts of the old ones. Turns out I actually liked Homecoming the second time around. Thor Ragnarok is still funny but I also think it’s several different movies trying to be one.

I have a deeper appreciation for Doctor Strange and Civil War still makes me want to slap Steve but that’s the one where Tony and Peter found each other so… feels 🙂

Another old favorite to enjoy this Spring:

Deadpool and Dopinder

I’m telling you if Disney gets Fox I will never give up on him doing a crossover. (You know provided they work it all out with Thanos!)

Recommend a Non-Fiction:

On Writing

I’m currently rereading On Writing by Stephen King and I have such a weird thing with good writing books. I can procrastinate and stall but read a couple of pages of something like On Writing and I’m in front of the computer all motivated like crazy.

And if you want to combine a non-fiction with an old friend there’s anything by:

General Leia Organa

Carrie Fisher.

I especially loved Wishful Drinking back when I read it but The Princess Diarist has a lot of Star Wars stuff. (I didn’t even know Carrison had ever been a thing before reading the book.)

Recommend Something to Help People Escape:

avatar the last airbender

I’m currently making my way through Avatar: The Last Airbender (end of season one so far) and really enjoying it. It’s got a beautiful look to it and the characters are so damned enjoyable! Which is really annoying because this was me for years…

People: You should really watch Avatar. It’s great!

Me: Eh, not big on cartoons.

Friends: I think you’d really like Avatar. Then we could talk about it.

Me: It’s a kid show. What’s there to talk about?

Now:

Me: Oh my Gosh! That show Avatar is so good!

Friends: Told you that years ago…

I’ll probably draw that out a bit so I can enjoy it through the summer.

  1. I do want to Circe. Thor Ragnarok was fun but it was like 3 movies.

    Lol about Avatar- I’ve been that way about some series too. Or I’m on the othr side and can’t get friends to watch something #frustrating

  3. I haven’t seen Deadpool 2 yet, but I really need too! I have re-watched Deadpool so many times in the last few months!

    I have a lot of friends that love Avatar and i enjoyed the random episodes I have watched, but I just don’t have time to start another full series right now. I heard the movie was awful tho!

  4. I mainly remember the movie running into casting problems with white-washing and being a total dud. Totally understand about the time thing. I don’t even watch many shows but somehow I’m behind on all of them! Good job me 🙂

    Everyone loves Avatar: TLA! I’ve never seen it before, but it has such a crazy following, I think I need to watch it now! And I am not a fan of movies where people traipse through the jungle, but I thought Annihilation was incredible! Thanks for all the suggestions. I need to add those books to my TBR!

  6. I’m usually not good with any kind of horror (visually- some times I can manage it in a book) but I was intrigued enough by Annihilation to give it a go and it is a beautiful if odd and deadly jungle 🙂
