Starsight

By: Brandon Sanderson

This was my first read of the new year, new decade and as those things go it was a perfect 5 Star way to start a new reading cycle!

Starsight is the sequel to Skyward so there’s spoilers for that one below. I try to keep it vague but you’ll definitely find out what characters survive. If you haven’t read that one yet and are interested… what’s stopping you?

My Fantasy Star Wars Saga Endings

Rey and Kylo in Rise of Skywalker

I was rewatching the Rise of Skywalker and I think elements of the Mandalorian could have perfectly explained the return of the Emperor!

Then I started thinking about my how it should have ended head canons and some fantasy spin-off ideas and thought why not?

Obviously spoilers for the Rise of Skywalker below. Also I’m in the middle on the movie so whether you loved it or hated it this is meant in good fun đŸ™‚ But onto how the Emperor returned!

Baby Yoda

Instead of talking about The Rise of Skywalker I wanted to endlessly speculate about my favorite piece of Star Wars media in ages- the Mandalorian. Whose season finale airs this coming Friday.

Obviously spoilers through the most recent episode 7 below.

I Finally Did John Wick!

Well, the movie trilogy naturally but a girl can dream right?

So I put these movies off for the longest time mainly because of the dog in the first movie that freaking Theon Greyjoy kills starting off this whole thing. It never really struck me that I could skip that part. Sometimes I don’t really think these things through.

How Does Anyone Survive?

Well Met

Well Met

By: Jen DeLuca

Why is sex in romance books, at least between our star-crossed lovers, always so damned perfect?

Okay maybe that’s not the right word nor can you say that about all books- I certainly haven’t read them all but just once I want to read one where the main couple finally get together have sex and then think hm, we’ll that just wasn’t good at all.

I suppose that would be anti-climatic.

It Chapter 2: Thoughts & Spoilers

Pennywise

It Chapter 2

Directed By: Andy Muschietti

Stephen King is well-known for not always sticking the landings as they say. It is probably a big part of that. The film makes fun of that as well teasing writer Bill that no one likes his endings.

Overall I have to say I enjoyed the film. Lots of positives. But I don’t think they stuck the landing and I don’t think that can be put on King either.

Ophelia Leads to a Hamlet Reread

Ophelia

Ophelia

Directed By: Claire McCarthy

A couple of weeks ago I watched Ophelia- which is basically Hamlet through Ophelia’s eyes. She’s one of my favorite Shakespeare characters a truly tragic character (unlike those impetuous dumbasses Romeo and Juliet.) And I thought with Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts it seemed like it was a good bet.

It also drove me to reread Hamlet for the first time since high-school which I found surprisingly enjoyable!

Sawkill Girls

By: Claire Legrand

I’ve been on a scare me kick recently and want things along the lines of Stranger Things plus I’ve wanted to read a Claire Legrand for ages (or at least since last year) so I finally picked up Sawkill Girls.

Monsters and girl power. What more could a girl want?

Stranger Things: Thoughts & Questions on Season 3 (Spoilers!)

stranger things season three

So I watched the 3rd season of Stranger Things in record amount of time (for me.) I think 3 goes down as my favorite season. I had some issues with it but for the most part I can say I love these characters, love spending time with them and am already excited for season 4.

My standouts and a very important Hopper question below as well as…

Spoilers!

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.
