Adaptation News: Good vs. Evil & Blacks vs. Greens

Drogon

I’ll get to the dragon news but in already filming news have I been sleeping on the fact we’re getting a new adaptation of The Stand? It’s only my favorite King book and I actually really liked then 90’s miniseries.

How in the hell did I miss that?

Just Tell Her Already!

Let's Call it A Doomsday

Let’s Call it A Doomsday

By: Katie Henry

For a good half of this book it employs what may be one of my top three most frustrating tropes. Not telling a main character information that they need for no good reason whatsoever.

I’d call it the Admiral Holdo trope but there’s not even a plot reason she shouldn’t know the information!

How Does Anyone Survive?

Well Met

Well Met

By: Jen DeLuca

Why is sex in romance books, at least between our star-crossed lovers, always so damned perfect?

Okay maybe that’s not the right word nor can you say that about all books- I certainly haven’t read them all but just once I want to read one where the main couple finally get together have sex and then think hm, we’ll that just wasn’t good at all.

I suppose that would be anti-climatic.

The Best Teachers of Books, TV & Film

Summer is over and it’s time for my 2nd favorite time of year…

Back to school!

Okay, I haven’t had to go back to school in years but I still love when the school supplies come out and it means Fall is definitely in the air so I thought I’d do some of my favorite teachers in books, films and shows.

I Finally Read It

IT

It

By: Stephen King

As a kid I was always a fan of Stephen King’s older stuff. The Stand, Tommyknockers, Carrie, Christine but for some reason I got it in my head that I would never, ever touch It. Yet the most recent adaptation and a rekindled interest in horror made me finally pickup the book tale of Pennywise.

And in the end I found it odd as promised and more sad and melancholy than actually scary.

Mooncakes? Depends on What You’re Looking For…

Mooncakes

I received a copy of Mooncakes from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. It’s scheduled to be released October 15th per Goodreads.

I was really looking forward to this one: witches and what seemed like cooking. No it doesn’t take much to make me happy but after thinking on it for a couple of days I’m very torn on Mooncakes.

What’s Scarier? Books vs. Films

Pennywise

I started reading It last week- the movie version helped restart my interest in the horror genre. Unsurprisingly like most of the King books I’ve read from that era I can’t put it down.

And reading it while awaiting the final chapter and thinking on some of the other scary movies I’ve watched or am interested in made me wonder about the age old question: What’s scarier in the horror genre: books or films?
