Still reading SILENCE by Michelle Sagara and WHAT WE LEFT BEHIND by Robin Talley, but set them both aside to read THE CROSSROADS OF SHOULD AND MUST by Elle Luna, which law school BFF brought down. It is a beautiful book; the layout and design is well done, and the artwork really nice. I’m not sure how helpful it is otherwise, and a lot of it was a little too touchy feely for me, but it was an interesting read.
The Lost Boys: The June 27 #80slivetweet movie was TLB, which has been one of my favorite movies (and, until Lilo & Stitch came out, my absolute favorite) since I first saw in the late 90s. I had a blast watching and tweeting along with everyone, and loved the movie as much as ever. Plus the people who participate in the hashtag always have such smart, hilarious, and fun things to say. #80slivetweet is hosted by BlackGirlNerds, and is a fantastic experience every time.
The Flash: I finally finished the last two episodes of the season. I love this show SO MUCH. It’s been one of my favorites this season, in large part because the characters are so wonderful. I am not a fan of how long they kept Iris in the dark, but other than that, I love it. I love it a lot.
And how much do I love Captain Cold and Golden Glider? Rogue siblings that snark at each other hard core. Delightful.
That ending, though. WTF? Cliffhanger what?
Pretty Little Liars: Somewhere around the end of season four/beginning of season five, I just stopped watching. And I did this twice, because I started a rewatch in early 2014 that ended the same way. I’m trying yet again, because I love this show and these characters. I’ve made it up to mid season four. I’m trying to push through so I can watch season six in a timely manner. Still hate the Aria and Ezra relationship, love the girls, love all the mothers and Emily’s father, and love Emily’s girlfriends and Caleb and sometimes Toby.
I’m finally into episodes I haven’t yet seen (starting after the Halloween episode that spun off the Ravenswood short-lived show). I am so glad that my hate on for Ezra has been (at least temporarily) validated. I’ve always found him creepy, and now he’s just acting creepier and creepier every time he’s on the screen. Even after (some) more truth came out about him, he’s still creepy as hell.
I’m currently a few episodes into season five, and wow. This show. This show.
Impromptu road trip over the weekend up to St. Louis for a surprise mini law school reunion. It was a lot of fun, but I ended up driving two hours back by myself right before sunrise. Thank god I have a great collection of music to keep me awake. Top three from the road trip.
Not a lot of game time this week because one of my law school BFFs was in town, and then we had that surprise mini reunion, but the little time I have for gaming was spent playing Marvel Puzzle Quest and Nations.
