Amy, Cat & Sansa: My Favorite Unpopular Characters

Florence Pugh as Amy March

It was a surprise to me during the run-up to the recent movie when I heard Amy March was an unpopular/controversial character amongst Little Women fans. I thought why?

And then I was thinking you’re a card-carrying member of the Catelyn and Sansa Stark fan club (books anyway) and the three characters actually have a lot in common with each other that I think makes them unfairly divisive.

Circe News & Her Satanic Majesty: A July Wrap-Up

In super exciting news Circe- which was one of my favorite reads in a very long time- got a straight-to-series order from HBO. I find the writers credits a bit of a mixed bag but the source material is so strong… oh, man I’m having de ja vu cause I am sure I said that before about another HBO series.

But what really matters is the casting…

Calendar Girls July: Favorite Book OTP!

I’ve wanted to participate in Calendar Girls for a while now. It’s a monthly event run by Katie at Never Not Reading and Adrienne at Darque Dreamer Reads in which you post your favorite choice for the specific topic.

My problem is that I am so bad at picking just one anything when it comes to books! But I  narrowed it down for a Favorite Book OTP. Though I’m totally giving runners-up 🙂

Halfway through 2019: A Little Look Backward & Forward

We made it to the half way point! Cheers to us!

Thinking back over all the entertainment books, television and films over the last couple of months all I can do is hope that there are some nice surprises to come. I mean don’t get me wrong there’s been some good stuff even some gems but nothing that really surprised me.

But there are definitely some great options ahead. Especially in books!

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

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!

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.
