I hope everyone's New Year is off to a good start. I had a good week, got a little reading in and things have calmed down with the holidays over. I love the wide open nature of a new year- the whole year is sort of spread before us and it feels like anything is possible. Will it be a good year? Who knows- but the potential is there. New books to read, new worlds to discover- and perhaps to create, if you write. I hope everyone's writing goes well this year.
Last week I discussed the new Star Wars movie (first discussion post of the year- it's not too late to come share your thoughts) and also reviewed Desperately Seeking Susan, a way fun movie. And of course Top Ten Tuesday which has become a regular for me.
This coming week I'm going to post my favorite movies and shows of 2015, as well as my thoughts on the new show Zoo and a film review of Escape from New York. My A Dance with Dragons re- read this week focuses on Melisandre- curious about the red witch? This chapter answers some questions even as it asks new ones. And my Bookcover Spotlight this week will be a Nancy Drew selection.
Books of Amber, Lady Knight Reads and The Overstuffed Bookcase are hosting a rewatch of The 100. The event is already underway and runs until Jan. 21- which is when S3 premieres. They're watching about 3 episodes a week plus a livewatch on Twitter. The 100 is available on Netflix and you can go here for all the info.
Do you like Lindsey Stirling? Here are her takes on Skyrm and Zelda.
I had fun revisiting this movie for my post next week.
