Book Rec’s for Busy Days!

Harley Quinn Recommends

So with the holiday weekend coming up I was thinking about how hard it might be to get a chance to read and, for me at least, how I actually need to find opportunities to read when I’m stressed so I came up with a couple of recommendations for getting through a crazy busy stretch of days.

Book style.

I’m a Carry On Convert

Carry On

I enjoyed Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl when I read it including the fan fiction parts with Simon Snow. But for some reason I threw up a block with the idea of reading the actual book. Like I do not want to read a rather large fan fiction about Harry Potter. Superficially though I loved this paperback cover and I really needed a pick me up.

Wound up a total Carry On convert.

Stranger Things Season 2: Spoilers!

Stranger Things 2

Stranger Things Season 2

Well, season 2 is done. I tried to stretch it out as long as I could as though somehow season 3 would be ready (I just can’t really binge anything). Overall I enjoyed another visit with my favorite kids, their Sheriff and the idyllic small-town hooked up to a seemingly massive inter dimensional portal.

Spoilers below.

Time Travel with Invictus & Paradox Bound

Invictus

Invictus

Author: Ryan Graudin

Grade: C

Invictus was one of the big reads I was waiting for this year and in the end I felt like it was just okay. I’m a sucker for time-travel and this book about time-traveling bandits lead by a kid who was literally born outside of time was described as Firefly meets Doctor Who so I really, really expected a lot.

10 Characters Who Would Rule Social Media

top ten tuesday

I haven’t done one of The Broke and Bookish Top Ten Tuesdays in ages but I saw this prompt and thought it looked like fun. The prompt technically is Top 10 Characters Who Would Make Great Leaders but that can be interpreted and when I saw trendsetters my mind just went to 10 characters who would totally rule Instagram/social media.

A weird amount of mine would use it to keep tab on their enemies but anyway! Characters appear in no particular order below…

Thor Ragnarok: Spoilery!

Thor Ragnarok

Thor Ragnarok

Directed By: Taika Waititi

Grade: A-

Thor Ragnarok was one of my most anticipated films of the year. It was kind of a strange one for me though. I liked the movie but I didn’t really appreciate how good it was until that ending. I’ve seen a couple of people say this movie did for Thor what Winter Soldier did for Captain America and that’s really true.

Spoilers below. Though I try to keep it vague…

The Raven Cycle & Book Piracy

The Raven Boys

Author: Maggie Stiefvater

Grade: A

After putting it off for way too long I finally read the entire Raven Cycle series! I started it right after Labor Day and finished it last week! Maybe it’s just a case of the whole series being done and there for me but I really loved it. I had put this off in large part because I could barely finish Shiver a couple years back so I was nervous I wouldn’t enjoy this.

I try to keep it spoiler free below!
