So I admit I was not as big on the last season of The Crown as the first two but we got a trailer for season 4 today and oh… I’m excited all over again!
So I actually took some notes on The Boys season 2 finale and the season overall and while I enjoyed it like crazy while watching it I was also kind of surprised how many nitpicks I had. Which I’m going to get out of the way first because I still think this is a great entertaining as hell show.
It just got a little too much.
Spoilers of course!
In all my Halloween Fall reading meant to scare me I haven’t read a book that’s done it yet. I haven’t found what I’m looking for yet I know that book exists…
And I don’t mean that metaphorically.
I know it. I own it.
I’m just to chicken to read it because when I get down to it I have many fears and anxieties but one takes the cake and it’s one you tend to run into a lot…
A Deadly Education
By: Naomi Novik
This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year. I loved Uprooted by the same author so when I heard it was about a school that you either graduate from or die in I had high expectations.
And it was admittedly a bumpy ride.
Directed By: Ridley Scott
I’m not a complete newbie to the world. I have seen Prometheus (it was fine) and Covenant (I was annoyed) and the best scene in Spaceballs! But I’ve never seen the first 3 films and I must admit when I hit play I felt a rush of excitement to finally be watching.
The Silence of Bones
By: June Hur
So for some reason I had it in my head the MC could talk to dead people or read there bones. Yeah don’t know where that came from. It’s not the case but it’s still a first rate mystery and great overall read.
Even without the talking to dead people part.
I admit it’s a bit hard to do a happy looking forward when the news seems either in flux or just plain bad. And that’s not even taking into account the disastrous real world news these days.
In the first bit of (unsurprising news) I will not be spending this Christmas with Oscar and Jason.

Black Sun is the first novel in a new fantasy series set in the pre-Columbia Americas. I had enjoyed the authors first work (Trail of Lightening) and never read anything in the setting before so was super excited to give this a go.
And the world does make for a truly different and intriguing read.
And Then There Were None
By: Agatha Christie
I read my very first Agatha Christie and me being me was actually surprised by how good it was!
The Social Dilemma
So I watched this documentary on the problematic (to put it lightly) nature of social media a couple of weeks ago and I wasn’t going to talk about it because I’m crazy bias. I think social media has become an absolute disaster for pretty much everything.
I’m not going to say it doesn’t have good sides like keeping families in touch but the bad at this point is outweighing it.
