So I’ve decided that on Thursdays I’m going to be doing some sort of This and That type of post where I can babble about movies, TV shows, music, etc (and bookish stuff too!). I still want to create original content on the blog, but I haven’t gotten there yet so I hope I can use this to stop the repetitive REVIEW MEME REVIEW MEME cycle around here. ANYWAY, ONWARDS. Here’s the stuff I’ve been obsessing over and such.
This Book: Boundless by Cynthia Hand
Ha, yes, I’m starting this off with a book related thing but HELP, I’M SO EXCITED THAT THIS BOOK COMES OUT NEXT WEEK!!! I’m also really nervous because I’m so unsure of where everything is headed. I just read Wendy Darling’s review the other day and I pretty much flailed. I will be so sad that the series is over, but until I turn that last page…I’m so looking forward to reading every word. Cynthia Hand is also touring around here in March so I’m looking forward to hopefully attending that event! If you haven’t already, please read these books!
That Game: Sims 3
Yep, that’s my Sim getting beamed up by a UFO! I used to play Sims a few years back, but I never got too into it. For some reason unknown I ended up getting Sims 3 and, well, the amount of time I’ve spent playing is ridiculous. I’m sure this will pass soon enough, but I’m definitely enjoying causing drama around my little Sims town. (Though I’m getting pretty annoyed by how often my Sims get visited by aliens now, haha.) If anyone else plays and has recs for expansion packs, custom content, etc, let me know.
This Movie: Les Miserables
Though I’ve heard about Les Miserables over time, I’ve mostly known about it through the fangirling of Lindsey and Linda. The excitement about the movie made me curious so I watched it last week and, wooooow, I was totally unprepared for the tears silently streaming down my face by the end of it. I’ve heard that there are better performances of it, but as someone who hasn’t watched any of them, I really enjoyed this adaptation.
That Show: Once Upon a Time
I fail at television. No joke, I always end up dropping shows because I simply don’t have the motivation to keep up. Why did I end up watching Once Upon a Time? Well, I was bored and it was streaming on Netflix. I’m already an episode behind, so I’m unsure of how much longer I’ll keep watching, but I’ve really enjoyed the episodes so far. It’s a little silly, but it’s also fun and I’m always interested to see how they’ll handle the interpretations of different fairytale characters.
Let me know if there’s anything you think I might enjoy!
