I’d like to start a new media report each week to keep up with everything I’m reading and various other projects I’m obsessed with at the moment!
A Simple Favor by Darcey Bell – I absolutely adored A Simple Favor when I saw it last year, it’s actually one of my favorite movies of all time now and I’m excited to finally be reading the book!
Paper Ghosts by Julia Heaberlin ; Page Count: 60% – Entering the latter half of the book, I’m a little disappointed in how slow it can be at times but overall, still interested enough to see how all of this is going to pan out in the end.
Little Darlings by Melanie Golding ; Page Count: 7% – I’m not very far into this one yet but it is very well written and I’m certainly fascinated by the plot and the folklore elements.
VIDEO GAME OF THE WEEK
Dragon Age: Inquisition: My character is a badass elf lady! I’ve only played through the prologue so far but given my obsession with PG games I’m already in love and can’t wait to play more!
Side note: I love Morrigan I’m obsessed with her titties out LOOKS. She serves all the swamp witch goth vibes I aspire to be like.
Missing Link ( Advance Screening ) – Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr Link, who is 8 feet tall and covered in fur, recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, the trio encounters their fair share of peril as they travel to the far reaches of the world. Through it all, they learn that sometimes one can find a family in the places one least expects.
Pet Sematary – Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his neighbour Jud Crandall, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unspeakable evil with horrific consequences.
Shazam! – We all have a superhero inside of us — it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In 14-year-old Billy Batson’s case, all he needs to do is shout out one word to transform into the adult superhero Shazam. Still a kid at heart, Shazam revels in the new version of himself by doing what any other teen would do — have fun while testing out his newfound powers. But he’ll need to master them quickly before the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana can get his hands on Shazam’s magical abilities.
CURRENT TV OBSESSION
The Act on Hulu: I can’t get over how good this show is honestly! I can’t wait for Joey and Patricia to both get nominated for Emmys. It’s so well-done and there is something profoundly chilling about the story, even outside the obvious horrifying story.
I recently wrote an article about the gothic horror of the show and how it redefines what it means to be a true crime drama in 2019. You can read it for yourself right here.
