Thanks to Shannon at R&R Book Tours and all the hosts for a wonderful blog tour last week! I’m still doing happy dances over the positive reviews The Insurgent received. After struggling with this book, it’s such a relief to know that readers are happy with the conclusion of Asher’s story.
Let’s talk about the new season of Stranger Things. So. Good. I started it Friday night, and even though the episodes are over an hour, by Saturday night I only had one left, and I’m hoping to watch it tonight. This might be my favorite season after the first one. I have the original song Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush (along with two covers of the same song) and, with this series being set in the 80s, was so excited to hear it used in several episodes. It was especially perfect for one seriously tense scene (I’m pretty sure I wasn’t breathing) that I won’t mention here. If you haven’t watched it yet, a binge session awaits you.
The first episode of season three of For All Mankind dropped Friday, and that one was also all kinds of nerve-wracking. Now I have to wait until next Friday for a new episode (wish they dropped the whole season like Netflix).
As a Star Wars fan, I was so excited for Obi-Wan Kenobi, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Ben was always a favorite character, and Ewan McGregor is perfect in the role. The young actress who plays ten-year-old Pricess Leia is a pure delight. She’s feisty, wise beyond her years, and totally able to hold her own in scenes with Ewan. This won’t be the last we see of her.
I gave in and finally subscribed to Paramount Plus. I got caught up on season two of Evil (previously on CBS and then unfairly moved to Paramount) and watched the first episode of season three that dropped last night. Hubby and I started Mayor of Kingstown and 1883 – we’ll watch anything Yellowstone-related.
Even with all that, I still managed to get some reading done and have reviews to write. Have a great week!
