Is it Hard to be Bad?

Killing Eve

Killing Eve

BBCAmerica

Grade: A-

Not if you practice.

I started watching Killing Eve just to check out Sandra Oh’s Emmy nominated performance and wound up with another television show I binged through. Granted there’s only eight episodes but still. For me whenever I finish a show that’s a plus!

Killing Eve is based on the Codename Villanelle books by Luke Jennings. The show was developed and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Germs, Television Wins & a lot of Books

august recap

I love getting to spend time with my nephew and since he started school I don’t see him as much but man every time I do I wind up sick. It’s as though sometimes when he’s hanging off me I can actually see the germs.

I think there’s something worse about summer colds. It’s like the whole world is so damned bright and you just want to crawl under the covers.

Book Recommendations: Summer Edition!

Book Recommendations Tag

This tag was originally created over on Youtube by Zarriah Rose & I have actually managed to do some seasonal recommendations for Winter and Spring. There’s a couple of good days left of summer (actually more but I’m of the once past Labor Day and back in school it’s officially over.)

Below are some fun recommendations for books I read this summer! But are good any old time of year.

My Newest Obsession: The Crown

the crown season 1

The Crown Season 1

Created By: Peter Morgan

Grade: A

So at this point I can tell how much I like a television show simply by actually finishing it. And finishing it super quickly. To be honest I wasn’t originally interested in watching this Netflix show- based on the reign of Queen Elizabeth. I started watching with my mother and then couldn’t stop.

July Recap: Some of this is Relevant!

july recap

July has come and gone. It’s almost Fall! Okay not really. August and September actually tend to be the most miserable of months in Southern California but I’m looking on the bright side here. Fall candles are out. Back to school shopping has started and the year is going by so fast I’ll blink and we’ll be changing the clocks.

May Wrap-Up: A Little of Everything…

may wrap-up

May has come and gone. It was mostly a good month. I seemed completely unable to keep my mind on anything longer than it takes to read a book (and I started probably a dozen that I put aside for later.)

My nephew visited for the Memorial Day weekend and I got to buy him books! Which was nice because usually he’s all about the toys 🙂

Work- which is usually slow this time of year very much hasn’t been. I don’t know if that’s good or bad yet. Also we’re already hitting triple digits here and I’m trying to find new and exciting ways to exercise without going outside or going to join a gym. But on to the important things…

Spring Favs and Recommendations

deer in annihilation

This is a bit of a Spring Favorites/Spring recommendations tag. I did a Winter one here and hoped to do it seasonally. So yeah for keeping up. I know technically there’s a bit of time left for Spring but honestly once we hit Memorial Day it’s summer (and I’m already looking forward to Fall.)

I’m combining books, film and television I’ve seen recently. The tag is originally by Zarriah Rose over on Youtube.

You Can Have the Robot I’ll Take John

Lost in Space

Lost in Space (Netflix 2018)

Grade: B

It’s extremely rare for me these days to finish a series at all not to mention in a couple of weeks. Lost in Space tells the story of the Robinson family crash landed on an alien planet and trying to survive along with a questionable Doctor Smith and a friendly (sort of) robot. I should say I’ve never seen the original show though I vaguely remember seeing the film remake a couple of years back.

I went into this with reasonable expectations and wound up quite enjoying it.

RIP It or SHIP It: TV Character Edition

rip it or ship it tv edition

This tag was created by Emmmasbooks on Youtube. It was originally for books but I pretty much did the same thing writing out some of my favorite television characters and pulling them from a mug and let me tell you… I’m a pretty good matchmaker.

Or perhaps I should have picked some characters that I don’t like.
