Fantasy is one of my favorite genres, I love diving into a new world with different races, languages and destinations. I view fantasy stories as an escape from reality and I enjoy the breaks. I picked up The Buried Giant by Kazu Ishiguro as an impulse buy during a trip to Barnes and Noble. The cover was so pretty I couldn’t help but pick it up and the synopsis caught my interest talking about Briton after the fall of Camelot and the adventure of an elderly Briton couple going to find their lost son and happening upon varies companions along the way.
Gosh, this series is intense, Fangirls. Every issue is jam packed with the weight of Elektra’s soul, not to mention whatever situation is at hand. Reading this series gets heavy, but it feels worth it. I had to mentally prepare to read this issue, knowing that after issue #8 left us with a giant dragon & the Hand, this wasn’t going to be a smooth sailing issue. It was surely an interesting ride.
Fangirls, I love to read. I rarely get to go to book stores, and I am not a big fan of reading things digitally, so I often end up rereading books I am already familiar with. It’s also one of the very few healthy ways I can deal with stress and anxiety.
Sigh. I had such high hopes for this movie, Fangirls, and I really should have known better. When I go into movies that are remakes or sequels, I always try to tell myself that this isn’t that movie. I told myself that Maleficent was not going to be Sleeping Beauty. But, I wasn’t expecting that they would change around the entire story as we know it. When it comes to a story I really love, I have no option but to be critical. Frankly, this movie was a huge disappointment.
Major spoilers ahead!
Fangirls, it finally happened. After waiting pretty much my entire life, I was finally able to get a hold on a copy of Sleeping Beauty. Emily, who had been highly anticipating my watching of the film, sat down & watched with me. And oh my goodness it was fantastic.
Okay, Fangirls. I didn’t think if ever say it, but holy shit I love My Little Pony. Really though. So I’ve watched all 3 seasons Netflix ha to offer in under two weeks. I know that’s pretty slow for a binge, but I also have school work and writing to do, so it’s not bad. But I really enjoy this show. I started watching the show because my friend Jen from Beyond the Gamer and Kyle (who wrote the article about Bronies)
