I Just Never Learn

The Rise of Kylo Ren

If there is one thing I hated most about the new trilogy it would be that scene with Luke and Ben in Last Jedi where Luke draws the lightsaber because he saw great darkness in Ben and then everything went to hell including characterization.

I only picked up this graphic novel because I had hope it would add something to that story.

I should have known better.

Djinn Patrol & Its Wonderful, Heartbreaking Kids

Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line

By: Deepa Anappara

Djinn Patrol is one of those books I picked up not at all knowing what I was going to get and absolutely loved despite the dark and tragic subject manner.

And I think it’s because Anappara brings the characters and the setting (but especially the characters) to life so well that I felt that I was there running the streets with the kids and I wanted to keep them all safe and fix everything that was wrong. Unfortunately there is a lot wrong for them.

Best of 2020 (So Far…)

I was going to bemoan the recent movie release date changes and the lack of any good comic-con news but than Taylor Swift surprised everyone delivered a jolt to my disastrous summer and dropped an album last night.

And I assure you folklore is deservedly on the Best of 2020 list already and will no doubt stay there. There will be rambles on this to come 🙂

So here’s a wrap up on the other great things I’ve loved this year! These aren’t in any kind of order but I highly recommend all of them!
