Monthly wrap up, Other Blog Posts

February Wrap up

I didn’t read or watch a lot this month. Then again February is the shortest month. Not a lot of stuff is going to get done. Just a reminder don’t shave off your goatee yet. We’re still in the dark timeline.

Normal People by Sally Rooney – See my review Review for this boring and terrible book.

Among the Volcanos by Omar S. Castañeda – Review, Another good book about the complexity of people and how everyone is not simply good or evil.

Review from last month: Neuromancer

The Codding of the American Mind by Greg Lukianoff & Jonathan Haidt – Review

Graceling by Kristin Cashore – Review, This is a graphic novel adaptation of Graceling. The story is good but I didn’t like the art style.

Mouse Guard: The Black Axe by David Peterson – Review, A good solid fantasy quest.

Enter the Backrooms #5 – I don’t think anyone is interested in this series but I am going to keep writing them.

Do Bloggers owe their readers and vice versa?

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark: How oral storytelling adapt to modern times.

Review from the backlog: Hatchet by Gary Paulsen.

The Red Shoes – The spectacle in this movie is amazing. If you like old classy movie check this one out.

The History of Time Travel – Film as a documentary on time travel. Not the best movie see my Review as I explain why.

Roxanne – the movie Cyrano is coming out, which Roxanne is a modern adaptation of it.

  1. Among the Volcanos by Omar S. Castañeda sounds really interesting. I love to read stories set in other places.

    It’s sometimes hard for me to read a graphic novel of a book I’m familiar with. I expect things to look one way and they are depicted in a different way. I often have the same trouble with movies.

  2. In regards to the Back Room posts.
    This is your blog and if something interests you, you need to write it out. Like that ironing post I did earlier this month. I KNOW no one was interested, but it hit my funny bone and so I had to get it out. To be honest, having posts like that gives your blog that flavor that makes it yours.

    On a completely different note….

    What did you use to create the little graphics for each section? ie, Books, Movies, etc?

  3. Shame about Normal People but at least you enjoyed your other books. I’ve tried graphic novels but they aren’t for me, though perhaps I should check for other artistic styles. The ones I tried were very similar in style.
    Have a great week and happy reading!

    1. It not worth the hype. There is no conflict and it just the two main characters hooking up together every few chapters. There is no character depth or development what so ever.

  4. I also like to hear which books are “boring and terrible” so thanks for sharing that info too. 🙂 I read The Coddling of the American Mind and got some good info from it. I’ll look forward to hearing what you say about it.

  5. It’s interesting that you found Normal People boring, as it had so much hype. I was definitely underwhelmed by it and won’t be reading any more of her novels. The TV series was really good though!
    Popping over from At Home a Lot.

    1. I didn’t know there was hype for this book. I got my copy at book con. It not just that the book is boring. The writing is not to my taste and I explain that in my review.
