A Fantastic Action Filled Finale

Honor Lost and Night of the Dragon

Night of the Dragon

By: Julie Kagawa

I’ve found in a lot of cases series endings simply fall short. They don’t live up to your high expectations. I am happy to say this is not those series.

Night of the Dragon, as they say, sticks the landing.

To Read or Not To Read: Crescent City

harley is confused

Have you ever had a book where half your brain keeps telling you no, let it go, you aren’t going to like it, you know better, don’t do it? But at the same time it’s under your skin and you know you won’t be able to stop yourself until you read it.

(I have the same thing with most horror movies.)

But for me that book is definitely…

The Secret Garden Was Not What I Thought

The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden

By: Frances Hodgson Burnett

I always thought this book was a portal world fantasy. Girl finds secret door goes through into magic other-world garden with fairies.

Boy was I wrong about that!

George R.R. Martin has stated that he’s using self-isolation to spend a lot of time in Westeros. And he even confirmed he’s talking about the Winds of Winter¬†and not some side-project!

When to Eat a Friend

Honor Lost

Honor Lost

I really appreciated this series diversity of relationships and delving into proper use of gender pronouns. But if I ever get violently overtaken by an alien parasite which attaches itself to my brain and brutally, horrifically changes by mind and body and my friend almost immediately starts combining names like were some celebrity couple…

I’m going to eat the bitch.

Books to Read When You are Sick

Zatanna Gets the Sneezes

My original idea for this list was Books to Read when you have a Migraine but then I just expanded it to whenever you’re any kind of sick lying around in bed and want to think about something other than how shitty everything is but also don’t want to pick up the latest 700 page tome.

These are quick (mostly) fun reads!

It’s Time for Poison Ivy…

Poison Ivy in the Harley Quinn show

The DC Cinematic Universe is sleeping on a lot but a big one I think is they haven’t yet used the character of Doctor Pamela Isley, better known as Poison Ivy, since Uma Thurman played her in that Batman we should all forget way back in the 90s.

I think that is crazy because if there’s anyone screaming for a Big Screen adaptation its her.

Jane Austen, Daisy Jones & Goodreads

Emma

The person in the middle of this cover is blue. Not like her clothes or metaphorically speaking blue because Knightley doesn’t love her but blue and it took me like a week of picking it up and reading before I finally thought, “Hey that person is blue!”

But this ramble isn’t so much about blueness as the big important questions in a readers life like… If Jane Austen was alive today what would she read?

To Dream or Not To Dream: Lair of Dreams

Lair of Dreams

Lair of Dreams

Libba Bray

Isn’t it great to fall into bed after a long day and have a wonderful dream in which everything you ever wanted is right there at your finger tips? (I wouldn’t know cause I only remember the nightmares but I’m sure its nice.)

Welcome to Lair of Dreams which seems pretty nice save for the part where the dream turns into a nightmare and you can never, ever wake up from it.

Literally.

You’re going to die in there.

Rereading with Some Trepidation: The Stand

the stand

I’m about halfway through a re-read of The Stand. I read it for the first time when I was probably way too young and remember loving it. But I’m having some bumps on this reread.

Which you know it’s been decades people change you never read the same thing the same way no matter how much you might have loved it. But it does make me wonder- 1. Does knowing the fate of these characters change the reading experience?

2. Did I actually like the mini-series better and simply confuse that with the book?

And news about the upcoming remake makes me wonder about that version as well…
