Getting it in under the wire again for Aries!
I use the horoscope and information at Elle On-Line and whether you believe this stuff or not it’s all in good fun for some book and film recommendations.
I started a A Song of Ice and Fire reread project because in my head for some reason I’m convinced if I take my time when I finish Dance of Dragons Martin will announce the long awaited Winds of Winter.
I know right?
Plus I just really wanted to reread the books. However rereading Thrones was a bit odd.
So I started Holy Sister yesterday and, besides the fact that I’m counting on loving it, the book starts off with what might be my favorite thing ever that should be included in all book series…
Endgame is coming!
And possibly a new Taylor Swift album but that’s a story for another post 🙂
So I thought I’d do my picks for Top 7 Marvel Characters. Why 7? Well I couldn’t narrow it down to five. I am basing this a lot on who I feel has had the best overall writing and story arcs throughout the series at least as much on who I just plain love.
The Raven’s Tale
By: Cat Winters
Well my finishing an Arc (thanks Netgalley for providing) and getting a review up the day before it comes out is a nice change of pace. So I may have patted myself on the back a little bit.
Even better… I really enjoyed the book! Even if I thought Edgar Allen Poe’s Gothic muse should have been called Penny.
I’ve been so busy waiting for Endgame and that It Chapter 2 Trailer I didn’t even realize we were getting Star Wars today. Of course my feelings about Star Wars have been mixed recently so that could also be the reason.
Directed By: John Lee Hancock
The first I heard of this movie was from the descendants of the lawmen talking about how nice it was to see this story from their side. When I jumped over to Netflix for the preview that, and the cast, was good enough to get me watching something I otherwise might not have bothered with.
Me: I think I’m finally going to read this…
Also Me: Don’t do it!
It’s too big.
What if it’s boring and you go into a slump and you never wind up reading anything again? It could happen.
Me: But I think I’m ready and I really want to…
Also Me: No. No, you don’t. Trust us!
Even in this I’m occasionally my own worst enemy 🙂
Ship of Smoke and Steel
By: Django Wexler
An enormous and seemingly impossible ship full of sacrifices. Commanded by an unseen Captain and a vicious crew. Guarded by “angels” who won’t let you leave once you board.
Action, violence, love and lust, betrayal and a fight for survival against a series of strange creatures including giant man-eating crabs.
I really think someone should get into the book tourism business because this would make a great cruise.
One of the most fun things about the world of Westeros is the theorizing. And with the show coming to an end I thought I’d look at some of the most popular theories- where they fall in the show and what the show may say about their fates in the books.
This is all in good fun but I know people are particularly passionate about both the show and the books. So I will say my heart as always is with the book world. I still believe we will get Winds of Winter one day. So don’t burst that bubble please! 🙂
