For me it's half-woman/half-spider creatures.
You wouldn't think it would be that common, but I have recently come across it in a book, a graphic novel, and a TV show. (Real life better not be next.)
So I looked it up! They're called arachne. And that thing that happens? I looked that up too. It's called the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon.
Now you can say you learned something new today! You're welcome.
Also, I have no real news this week, so my story about arachne is pretty much all you're getting.
This isn’t really news, but did you know you can borrow ebooks, graphic novels, audiobooks, and even movies online with a library card?!?!?! Because I did not. But I do now, and I plan to use it to its fullest! (I suppose this may not be true of everywhere, but you should check and find out!)
Books I Finished:
I hit a bit of a slump this week, wasn’t really sure what I felt like reading. Even though the plot dragged some, I thought Winterspell was a unique Nutcracker retelling that used the elements of the original in a really creative way, and what better time for a Nutcracker retelling than December?! And of course Saga was great.
Song of the Week:
White Winter Hymnal Cover by Pentatonix – Apparently I’m in a very Pentatonix mood this Christmas? Anyway, this song is kind of morbid to really be considered a Christmas song, but it’s sure nice to listen to!
