Weekly Round-Up

WEEKLY MEDIA REPORT – 4.6 – 4.12

BOOKS

The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling – My review will be posted soon, but I was given a copy of this book by Harper Voyager in exchange for an honest opinion. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would! I was pleasantly surprised by the genuine psychological thriller aspect and the intensity of the tension building. The love story between the two main women was a welcome addition to the novel as well. The character development of both Gyre and Em was a high point.

Limetown: The Prequel to the Podcast by Cote Smith – Page Count: 25% – I’m not sure what to make of this quite yet. I loved the original podcast and I’m interested in the Limetown lore but thus far the book is a bit tedious and dull for me. Though it is well-written. I intend to finish it and hope it picks up a bit more as it goes along.

Silent Sisters by Joanne Lee – I haven’t started this one yet but it is my next ARC. It’s a non-fiction true crime book about the horrific crimes committed by her mother.

CURRENT TV OBSESSION

Courtesy of 2018 Warner Bros Entertainment Inc.

Mainly I’m obsessed with just how adept Diane Guerrero is at playing the 64-personality character of Jane. I mean I’m obsessed with Doom Patrol as is for being a daring, bold, and whacky new take on the superhero genre but Diane steals every single scene she’s in – no matter which “alter” is in control. I highly recommend anyone who hasn’t started this show yet to give it a shot! There is nothing else like it on television right now.


CINEMA JAUNTS

Little – Jordan is a take-no-prisoners tech mogul who torments her long-suffering assistant, April, and the rest of her employees on a daily basis. She soon faces an unexpected threat to her personal life and career when she magically transforms into a 13-year-old version of herself right before a do-or-die presentation. Jordan will now need to rely on April more than ever — if April is willing to stop treating Jordan like a 13-year-old child who has an attitude problem.

Hellboy – Based on the graphic novels by Mike Mignola, Hellboy, caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.

After – Tessa Young is a dedicated student, dutiful daughter and loyal girlfriend to her high school sweetheart. Entering her first semester of college, Tessa’s guarded world opens up when she meets Hardin Scott, a mysterious and brooding rebel who makes her question all she thought she knew about herself — and what she wants out of life.
