The More Things Change the More they Really Don’t

So Game of Thrones has ended and yeah, I have some thoughts 🙂

Disclaimer: Spoilers obviously.

Other disclaimer: I read the spoilers when they were released so I think by the time it aired I was more resigned than anything else. My biggest problem with this show has always been the writing and it didn’t let me down here.

The Bells Marks My First Real Fear for the Books

sad dany in game of thrones

So The Bells happened.

I’m going to talk about the last episode of Game of Thrones which did in some fairly major characters (in more ways than one) and why I’m worried about the books for the first time and not just that Martin probably won’t finish them.

Disclaimer one: If you don’t want to hear anything at all criticizing the show fair to you. Don’t read.

Obviously SPOILERS and swearing! Definite swearing in this one.

GOT: Thoughts and Unpopular Opinions on Dany… Spoilers!

dany game of thrones

So I wasn’t going to write about Thrones until it was over but oh boy the Dany stuff and in a lot of ways the reaction that’s spun up around it. I feel like I have to work some things out and write through it.

WARNING: Spoilers through episode four! FYI there are spoilers about the end that seem to be leaning toward true. I’m not going to talk about them here but just be careful if you’re out there on the Internet.

Disclaimer: If you are enjoying the show and don’t want to hear anything bad about it that’s wonderful! Enjoy it. I get it. No one’s stopping you. Don’t read this. There’s a lot of good things and hard work on this show but for what its worth my biggest problem with the show is and has always been the writing.

And what it might mean for the books but for now this is just about the show.

5 Most Relatable Big Bang Theory Episodes

Amy and Sheldon in the BBT

The Big Bang Theory is coming to an end soon and while I do agree its nowhere near as funny as it once was the show seems to get so much hate it kind of surprises me. It’s a sweet reliable show.

And more than that at times its helped me deal with stress and my own anxiety so I thought I’d give it some love with the 5 Most Relatable Episodes of The Big Bang Theory.

Thrones Theories: Predictions for the Final Season!

jon at the heart tree

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! 🙂

Maybe the Books are in a Slump?

I’ve been thinking about a March wrap-up and my recent reads worried I was in a book slump. Though I’m still reading a ton and I still want to read everything… but the last couple of weeks there hasn’t been anything that’s really blown-me away.

It could be me.

But I’m starting to believe it’s the books that are in a slump and not the reader.

Slightly Late Recommendations for Pisces

I’m a bit late on the Pisces Recommendations. But it would drive me up a wall to skip one. As usual I use the Elle horoscope for the information- although horoscopes and Zodiacs -these things are all in fun and just what you make them.

Things Not Conducive to Blogging

Probably the main thing not conducive to blogging or keeping up right now is abdominal  surgery and a stomach full of stitches. I told myself I wasn’t going to bother with posting or even scheduling posts but I had really been hoping to keep up with reading and commenting and that just didn’t happen.

The Only Time I’d Ever Say War Looks Good

After what feels like forever a new and longer Good Omens trailer dropped and we got a look at some characters in action. And naturally when I saw War (Mireille Enos) the first thing I thought was… oh do I like the hair. I mean if you’re going to be one of the Horseman of the Apocalypse you should definitely have a good look to you!

I Don’t Need Much…

On Tuesday, actually sometime Monday night I suppose, I’m going to own Aquaman. Then I will be able to study it in all its glory. Essays. Dissertations. Or I’ll probably just endlessly watch it. Also Tuesday Taylor Jenkins Reid’s new book Daisy Jones and the Six will be released and I am ready!

So all in all it should be a good entertainment week. And Captain Marvel!
