September Ends at Last

Pennywise

September is finally ending.

Generally speaking it’s always been one of my least favorite months. Miserable heat while everyone else gets to start Fall (so it seems) and always without fail endless sinus infections and migraines that make a meeting with Pennywise look like a pleasant alternative.

Yeah, I am obviously ready for October.

Halfway through 2019: A Little Look Backward & Forward

tenant and sheen in good omens

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!

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.

The Rise of Skywalker & My Hope for a Strong Conclusion to the Saga

Daisy Ridley as Rey

I’ve been so busy waiting for Endgame and that It Chapter 2 Trailer I didn’t even realize we were getting Star Wars today. Of course my feelings about Star Wars have been mixed ¬†recently so that could also be the reason.

Recommendations for Avoiding the Big Game…

football recs

So I thought I’d do some recommendations for those of us who aren’t watching the Super Bowl but who are stuck where everyone else is- or just recommendations period for a Winter Sunday. Then it sort of turned into a Super Bowl themed tag and includes books, movies, shows.

The whole nine years… which is a football thing right? Or golf? I don’t remember.

Science-Fiction Book Suggestions for Newbies

sci-fi recs for newbies

A friend of mine recently asked what books I’d recommend for her niece to get into science-fiction and I thought, “Hey there’s an idea! I read enough and I love the idea of telling people what to read!” ūüôā

Some of these books were literally gazing at me from my shelf. So anyway below are the books I think would help people launch themselves into the sci-fi genre. While I don’t believe in age limits on what books people should read (no one is to old for YA for instance) I tried to pick a good spectrum of books.

Disney Princesses & the Zombie Apocalypse Tag

It's Your Universe

So I picked up this book It’s Your Universe by Ashley Eckstein which is basically a cute little book about growing up with Disney and the power of following your dreams. It’s a great pick-me up or gift idea but I really wanted to do something with the Princesses.

Then I ran into the Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag on Andreas Nirvana¬†and I thought… zombies, princesses… Seems like a plan.

Thoughts on Solo

alden ehrenreich as Han solo

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Directed By: Ron Howard (mostly… )

Grade: C+

Well, despite my dislike of The Last Jedi and my deep belief that no one but Harrison Ford could play Han Solo I went and saw Solo and it definitely surprised me. I think the biggest surprise is that after all the talk about the Lawrence Kasdan (and his son Jake’s) script that was my biggest issue with the movie.

Space Buns, Affairs & Killing Giant Space Slugs

The Princess Diarist

The Princess Diarist

By: Carrie Fisher

Grade: B

“I thought you might supply¬†

some tenderness I lacked but

out of all the things I offered

you took my breath away-

and now I want it back.”

The Princess Diarist is kind of a weird read.

Still Torn: The Solo Trailer & More Series

Solo: A Star Wars Story

So we got a Super Bowl teaser¬†and then the very next morning a full-length trailer. I’ve been waiting for this one for a while and once again it’s tough to have an opinion (good or bad) in this fandom. I actually read someone say that you couldn’t say anything about this movie or casting unless you had been to film school.

Really? Really?

I mean if it works for you more power to you. Great. If it doesn’t work, same you know? I don’t think you need to go to film school to have an opinion on a movie trailer.
