A Fairy Tale Out of Time… in more Ways than One

Enchantment

Enchantment

By: Orson Scott Card

I’ve been collecting fairy tale retellings recently and yeah for me for actually reading one! I was drawn to Enchantment (despite not being the biggest fan of Card) for one reason: the time element.

For Sleeping Beauty is out of time and Ivan (circa early 90’s) first goes back in time with her to her world and then she travels forward to ours. Getting a bit ahead of myself though.

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.

A Lot of Trouble for One Finger

The Night Tiger

The Night Tiger

By: Yangsze Choo

Grade: A

See this is one of those books that make me realize I could never be a book character because if I came into possession of a severed human finger I would toss it and run screaming not be like oh, mysterious! Let’s go digging!

Especially when you find out the last person that had it is dead. But that’s just me!

April Wrap-Up & May Plans

Taylor swift in me!

Spring is here and April was a very good month in entertainment. I watched my nephew for a week this month and despite predictions I did not sell him for books.

However I’m grateful we weren’t doing a swear jar or anything because even trying to watch myself I’d probably be broke.

Avengers Endgame MVP’s & Spoilers!

Avengers Endgame

If I think about it the entire MCU has been like a book series that I’ve been reading for over a decade now which finally came to an end. More impressively despite all the build-up and all the hype I think it was an entertaining powerful and well earned ending.

I feel like it’s a movie I have to see again to take in everything I probably missed the first time. Which I will. So instead the MVP’s (sometimes a bit general) but spoilers, spoilers, spoilers below!

Final Endgame Predictions: No Spoilers

Avengers Endgame

So only hours really until my most anticipated movie of the year opens. I thought I’d do a final predictions list. I was going to make a Bingo Card but I am just not graphically inclined.

I did do a theories post a while back.

I have managed to stay unspoiled save for the shows announced on the new Disney streaming service. Which I wasn’t even happy about that. So no spoilers just plain old guesses below.

Frustration and Footnotes

house of leaves

House of Leaves

By: Mark Z. Danielewski

In an effort to read something a little different I found something like the Shroedinger’s cat of books in that I liked it and didn’t like it. And that I finished it and DNF’ed it.

I saw someone say that in the end people can interpret  this book a lot of ways and that is very deeply true. I saw it as both a love story and a total pain in the ass.

Rereading Thrones: You Should Never Leave Winterfell

game of thrones

I started a A Song of Ice and Fire reread project because in my head for some reason I’m convinced if I take my time when I finish Dance of Dragons Martin will announce the long awaited Winds of Winter.

I know right?

Plus I just really wanted to reread the books. However rereading Thrones was a bit odd.

A Helpful Benefit Every Book in a Series Needs

Holy Sister

So I started Holy Sister yesterday and, besides the fact that I’m counting on loving it, the book starts off with what might be my favorite thing ever that should be included in all book series…
