Pretending Perfection Exists & Life Isn’t A Mess

Pretending

By: Holly Bourne

I hate men.

So the novel starts. April goes into far greater detail than I will here but suffice it to say I was a little worried at the start of the book. And I was completely unsure what to expect, as I heard of but never read Holly Bourne before this, and maybe I didn’t get what I thought I would.

But I got a good and interesting read.

Lego Palpatine is the Best Palpatine: The Star Wars XMAS Special

Well Lego Emperor Palpatine totally stole the show for me. The Star Wars Holiday special might not have been as out there as the first one (a good thing in my opinion) but it was still a completely amusing hour as Rey goes back in time and the whole timeline collides while Poe tries to plan a party.

I Wish I Had a Reindeer…

Dash and Lily

My feelings for Dash and Lily the show are not unlike what I feel about the two books. A really good, fun beginning but man I wish there was a reindeer that could have run them both over somewhere between 5 and 6 and leave me with happy memories.

*All holiday films, books and shows will be judged on a Grinch Scale which is basically how much my heart grew, or didn’t, for the event in question. And since I wanted a reindeer to run them over we can all see where this is going.

Oh the Places This Could Go: The Heiress

Spoilers for Episode 3: The Heiress

I do this all the time.

Something or someone gets introduced in a show I enjoy (love) and I can’t help launch my imagination down the road of all the places the story could go and with the arrival of Bo-Katan I’ve been running wild with it!

Plus I mean is The Mandalorian teasing the Starbuck/Gus Fring battle I never knew I wanted?

Recs for The Best Themed Book Month of the Year

It’s non-fiction November usually the happiest (book) time of year!

Okay here’s a confession I used to get non-fiction confused with fiction because naturally I thought non-fiction meant… not true and fiction was true. Obviously I figured that out. Sometime in college I think but otherwise I thought I’d recommend some good not fiction books I’ve read recently.

What Do You Feed a Yoda? The Passenger

Spoilers Below for Episode 2 The Passenger!

I can’t escape spiders even on an ice planet in a galaxy far, far away. In fact they just made them bigger and Alien like!

And now that I’ve finally seen those movies I get the references. Anyway The Passenger had a giant spider and lots of little spiders (somehow worse than the big one) and no Timothy Olyphant. So yeah I definitely didn’t love this one.
