Can someone just slow the May train down so I can get off? I mean we're pushing mid- May already. But in reading news I've been doing okay, trying to get through all the recent releases I need want to  read. Plus the shows- The 100, Riverdale, and about a zillion others I'm currently into. Not that I mind. :) Can I say that The 100 is rocking it this season? Seriously, season 5 is amazing so far! 

This past week Movies That Suck looked at Kong: Skull Island. Next up is Before I Fall, based on the Lauren Oliver book (which I haven't read). Has anyone seen the movie? I of course will have some thoughts on Thursday. :) Also this week I'll be starting my review of Star Trek: The Animated Series and I'll have a post on Sexy Song Lyrics as well.

  1. If only books were still $.25 Greg. (lol) I feel like May is slipping through my fingers too. Before I Fall received many good reviews, but for the life of me, I just couldn't get into it. Looking forward to seeing what you think of it. Happy Saturday and Hugs...RO

    1. I know! Did you see mixed reviews for the book, or for the movie? I wonder about both, but I'm gonna watch the movie even though I haven't read it. Although normally I prefer the book first...

  4. I love the Star Wars photos. Are you excited for the Solo movie? I am but my son is a little wary of it.

    1. I am totally excited for Solo! I was skeptical too then I saw the trailer.

  6. I haven't read the book and have no interest in the film either! Just not my thing I'm afraid. Have a good book week!

    1. You too! I usually like Lauren Oliver, we'll see how it turns out :)

  7. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Sky in the Deep. So many mixed reviews so I keep waffling. I might request it from the library instead of buying.

  8. I've read Before I Fall and I can't remember if I liked it or not cos I've read two of her books, 1 did like, the other I didn't. I didn't know there was a movie, will check that out so looking forward to your thoughts.

    I'm also looking forward to Rachel Vincent's new book, looks really interesting.

  9. I loved the book Before I Fall, and the movie wasn't too bad, either! Looking forward to your commentary!

    1. Cool! I've heard the book is good, but have heard nothing re the movie...

  10. That rolling ocean picture made me dizzy!

    The girls all lined up in red dresses on the cover of Strange New World made me think of The Handmaid's Tale. LOL

    I haven't read Before I Fall, but I saw (and enjoyed) the movie.

    Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Did it? I can kinda see that... once I looked at it it did me too! And yes that totally looks like the Handmaid's Tale- so true!

      I'm glad you liked the movie, I hope to as well.

      Delete
    2. I thought Handmaid's Tale too. Is it the same shade of red?

  11. The month does seem to be flying by, doesn't it? I haven't seen Before I Fall yet. I look forward to your thoughts on it. I watched Doctor Strange finally. I was a bit underwhelmed. Strange New World looks very good. I hope you have a great week, Greg!

    1. I'm looking forward to it. I heard the book was good. And I was underwhelmed by Dr. Strange too. Strange New World I'm hoping will be good!

  12. Ugh did you get Strange New World then? Jealousss. I shall have to wait until... Idk, it is on sale or I am not broke haha. Agreed about The 100, of course! I saw and read Before I Fall. I really liked the book. The movie... I don't know, it was kind of meh for me? I am looking forward to your thoughts though! Also did you really review Menagerie? Because I could definitely be losing my mind, but I don't see it anywhere! And I've been quite curious about that one. Love the minimalist posters too, and also the ones with moving water because of course.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Looking forward to see what you thought of Sky in the Deep! And ooh, I always love it when you find those retro style Star Wars posters/pics. So beautiful.

  14. It's Spawn's 11th birthday on Tuesday, so yes, May is going way too fast! I watched Before the Fall and thought ... ehn. Have a great week :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I got hypnotized by that water. LOL I agree, May is speeding by. it's really heating up here. Spring was brief and its been around 90 and sunny all week. I hate to say it but we need rain! Already having to water all the plants. And I'm playing catch up with review reads too. I need to get blogging ahead as summer is a busy time for me. Loving the pics this week too.

  16. Hah, Starfield! However, my reference will be completely unrelated, lol. I'm reading Geekerella, and instead of Star Wars or Star Trek, they have Starfield! It's spacey and has dark nebulas--pretty awesome. I actually think it's a book you'd enjoy!

    I'm looking forward to your review of Sky in the Deep! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Seriously it feels like wer'e only a third through the year but it's actually almost half? I finished all 4 seasons of Peaky Blinders and need a new show to watch whenever I don't feel like reading or w/e, and I'm thinking I might try The 100 since you and Shannon talk about it so much!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gotta love the artwork you picked, wow!! Have a great week :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. May really is going too fast -- especially because I have exams in June...! Here's hoping we can get it to slow down...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your new books look amazing! May is really flying by isn’t it?! Means summer vacation will be starting soon for the kiddos. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. May is moving incredibly fast for me as well. I love all the artwork, especially the Tatooine one! Looking forward to reading your review of Sky in the Deep! Have a wonderful week!

  22. Time does go too fast. That water vid is hypnotic.

  24. I am with you. May needs to slow down, because when it's over, my daughter moves to Chicago. *crying* I can finally really weigh in on your movies that suck, because I recently watched Before I Fall. Can't wait to see what you have to say.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ooo I love Menagerie by Rachel Vincent. I listened to it on audio the first time - awesome. I'm new to The Sunday Post and tend to lurk. But I'll try. Anne - Books of My Heart

  26. I hear ya about May moving so quickly-- I was shocked when I realized that we are almost to the halfway point of 2018 :o

    ReplyDelete
  27. YES! May needs to slow down. I’m struggling hard with life, and I’ve barely read anything this month. It’s awful. I hope you have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  28. I agree, May is going way to fast. But, that means the Han Solo movie is approaching :-)
    I'll be staring the Brave New Girl series this week. Looking forward to it. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  29. May is going by fast. My daughter turns 27 next month and she's making me feel old. lol

    ReplyDelete
  30. As a teacher, I need May to hurry up and be done!! But, I understand why other people aren't wishing time away :) I am curious to see what you think of the Rachel Vincent book-it looks interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Before I Fall? That film was ok and it kept pretty close to the book. I was annoyed by the books ending, though, so I felt the same about the film. It was an interesting watch at least. Some cool new books on here can't wait to see your thoughts. And loving that fire picture, I could stare at it for hours.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just finished the First season of Riverdale! I can't wait for Netflix to get the second one. I actually really enjoyed it, maybe because I was a huge fan of the comic.
    My family just got me Sky in the Deep. It's a book I have been wanting to read since it came out.

    I also wish May would slow down, I feel like I haven't accomplished anything yet!

    Have a great week, Greg! Happy Reading!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Very interested to see what your thoughts are on Sky in the Deep! I got to see Before I Fall at a film fest last year; it was ok, nothing particularly good or bad about it. Looking forward to reading your Movies That Suck post on it :) Hope you have a wonderful week Greg!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This year is speeding by. I think that the saying that time moves faster as you get older is probably true. I loved Menagerie and have Sky in the Deep recently added to my shelves. Have a great week, Greg!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Never mind May - I'd like the whole of 2018 to slow down... surely Christmas was only three weeks ago?? Love the pics again - I'm looking forward to watching the space video at some stage. Thank you for sharing and have a great week, Greg:)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sounds like you have a bunch of shows and book you're enjoying lately. But I do agree that it feels like the year is flying by at times. Oh I like the star wars art you shared this week!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love Harley Quinn so you know I'd think that art is great. I need to find your Kong post as I think I missed it. Glad you are getting lots of reading and watching done. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes! The 100 is absolutely rocking it as you say. I wish we didn't have to wait for the next episode every week.
    OMG! I love the fire, forest, buck, Tumbler picture and the scene on the boat , rocking gently which is the second last pic from the bottom. Those are a sensation and whoever made them are a genius.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I never read Before I Fall but the premise is interesting. It'll be fun to see your thoughts on the movie. I've been seeing good things about Sky in the Deep!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I figured May is flying by because I was on vacay for the beginning of it. I so agree about The 100! Loving what is happening. I read Before I Fall and didn't know a movie has been made. Looking forward to what you think. Have a great week.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think I read Before I Fall or a least thought about reading it. It all becomes a blur. I hope you enjoy Sky In the Deep.

  42. I love those Star Wars posters and I can't wait to see what you think of Sky in the Deep, Greg. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love all the images you found. Particularly that second to last one-- I just want to laze around on a boat all day. Is it summer yet? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've never read or seen Before I Fall actually! And yeah, it's crazy that it's about mid-May already. Slow down!!!

  46. Awesome week you had! I've seen Kong: Skull Island and it was alright.

  47. This year is really flying by, and I agree I need it to slow down a bit. Especially now that the warm weather is here. I feel like I'm in a constant state of catch up.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yes May is certainly speeding by. Like you I am endeavouring to read all the books I want to fit in! Thanks for asking about my sister, she is deteriorating but slower so far than Drs said. Two of my sisters are up with her at present. They are saints!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Illustrations are certainly unusual.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love the cover of Kill and Tell! I'm at least a season behind on The 100 -- I really need to get back to it. Both of your new-arrival books are new to me, I'll have to investigate.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yeah, May is just barreling ahead. I'm seeing The Underwater Ballroom everywhere. So now I'm curious. Hope you enjoy your new books!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Great Star Wars art this week! I also want the May train to slow down. The time is just flying by!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I tried to read Before I Fall but just couldn't get through it. I kept looking at the end to see how many pages I had left to trudge through until I finally gave up. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love the Harley Quinn and that water is mesmerizing. Really looking forward to Fury, book 3 in Menagerie

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm so with you on The 100. Every episode so far has been incredible. I can't wait to see what you think of Sky in the Deep. I know there have been some mixed reviews but I enjoyed that one. And I completely agree with you about May. I'm sitting here like where did the first two weeks of the month go?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oooh I really like the Death Star, Harley Quinn, and Vampire girl pics! Is the vampire girl from something or is she just cool? And May needs to slow the $%&# down!

  57. That cover for Sky in the Deep! Love. Have a wonderful week. - Katie

  58. I've seen the book Before I Fall but had no idea there was a movie. Not sure if that's a good sign or not but I'm looking forward to your thoughts on it! Have a great week!

  59. May is flying by (but I'm okay with it because summmmmmer). I haven't seen Before I Fall but I really enjoyed the book. Happy reading!

  60. So many good shows and not enough time... I need to watch Riverdale. I've heard its pretty good.
