Let’s see, what did I do this week…
I rented some movies! I rarely watch movies, but it seemed like a good way to rest my arms. I watched Captain Fantastic because I thought it would be fun, quirky, and touching, I got a Little Miss Sunshine vibe from the cover, but boy was I wrong. I nearly cried like six times. I was heavy and unsettling in some ways and emotional but touching in the end. Good story and good acting too. I also watched The Lost Boys because I’d never seen it. Honestly it didn’t make much sense, but I like the idea of vampires as an 80s gang, and their lair was hella awesome. I also finally watched Fantastic Beasts. I loved it! Newt was adorable, and I totally want his magical bag with all those creatures. The ending was kinda sad though, I thought.
I also had some brainstorming sessions on the phone about backstories for my supernatural sims lol. I think I like coming up with ideas and just creating characters and stories/scenes in my head more than I like actually writing.
I also finally started on that goal to learn about the lore of different supernatural creatures.
I’ve basically just been finding things to do that don’t require a lot of arm use. As for blogging, I’d like to give a special shout-out to my phone because it is actually really good at dictation and has been a lifesaver for replying to comments and visiting other blogs. It’s not a perfect solution, but it helps. Which means, with my luck, I’ll end up having to get a new one in a month -_- Anyway, I’m keeping up with comments fairly well, but I still may not be visiting all the Sunday Posts this week.
Books I Received for Review:
Nothing. I’ve been waiting to hear back about one book on NG for over a month. I think they might’ve forgotten about me :-/ I really want that book though!
Books I Finished:
Scarecrow was a disappointment. Trans Liberty was unique in some ways and not bad but maybe just not quite for me. Goneward was great, unique, and darker than I expected. It did make me sad though :-( Charm City was kinda typical UF. Didn’t blow me away, but it was enjoyable.
Song of the Week:
Nothing this week.
Laugh of the Week:
A few minutes in the life of a sign language interpreter. I was laughing so hard.
In Case You Missed It:
– I reviewed Chester 5000 XYV Vol. 1 by Jess Fink, a webcomic/GN cross between silent film, erotica, and steampunk.
– I discussed consistency in book titles.
– I reviewed A Destiny of Dragons by TJ Klune, a fun and touching but heavier sequel in a M/M high fantasy series.
