The weekend before Christmas! Is everyone ready? I am, sorta. I've been binging Travelers all week and finished season three. Let me just say... wow. As usual they blew it out of the park. That ending though... please let there be a season four. Everyone pray for a season four. Honestly. Pray.

6 houI've been binging Travelers this week  
In other news... oh yeah. Christmas. I'm ready! Sorta. I'll be out of town for part of it so I may be scarce for a few days, but I'll be around as much as possible. Blogging is a cruel master after all and demands much of us. I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday- Merry Christmas!!!!!!! 

I also finished Fire and Blood. 700 pages of Westerosi history- it's not the Winds of Winter but if you've ever pondered how some people know all that stuff about the Targaryens and whatnot- well now you can too. It's fun too picking out all the GRRM-isms as well- you know, the turns of phrase and the like that he is known for- not to mention by now familiar themes. I'm even thinking of doing a post on life lessons from Westeros. I'm also reviewing each episode of Travelers- that will be going on throughout the week- and have a few holiday tags on the way too.

    1. I never read it but the movie freaked me out as a kid. I recently rewatched it for Movies That Suck, and... it's not bad.

    2. I agree on the last Godzilla. I was not a fan. ๐Ÿ˜•

  7. I'll be on pretty much the same blogging schedule through the whole festive period so I'll be around each day. I might not be as busy if a lot of people are too busy to post! Have a good Christmas Greg!

  8. I kind of slack off in the blogging area around Christmas, but I rarely take breaks so I feel like big holidays are an exception! I hope you enjoy your time off!

    Nice new reads too! Totally new to me ones but I hope you will enjoy them all!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  9. I've been semi-avoiding your Travelers posts because we're only a couple episodes in and I'm really trying hard not to spoil things for myself this season! I'm intrigued as to where this season is going, because right now it seems all over the place!

    Merry Christmas!!

  11. I am not very familiar with Godzilla. I should educate myself a bit. My son is in Tokyo for a year and we will be visiting in March. Godzilla is still big over there.

    1. I loved it as a kid, and it's fascinating to me that Godzilla is such a cultural force over there given that lots of people here I think dismiss it as nostalgic monster movies- which I guess they are haha but I have cautious hopes for this one?

  12. I hope you have a Merry Christmas! I'm definitely ready. I finished wrapping all the presents yesterday and we're off on vacation now. :)

  13. Merry Christmas! I've been seeing Travelers everywhere! I'm going to go looking for a trailer of season 1 to see if it sounds like something I'd like. The way everyone is raving about it it'll probably get a spot on my list of shows to watch in the near future :)

  15. As much as I adore the show (and I do-so much), I just never got into the GoT books. I would love a post about it! I'll also have to check out Travelers. Safe travels and happy holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have to look into the Godzilla movie a bit more. It's hard for me to tell what it's about from the commercial I saw.

    Have a great Christmas Greg!

  31. I recently read Lies You Never Told Me and I’m on the fence about it! I think the concept was good, but the execution wasn’t the best. Curious to know your thoughts!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Merry Christmas! Have a safe trip! I am not going to add traveler to my list of binge watching :)

    I hope you have an amazing week, Greg! Happy Reading!

  33. I am not ready for Christmas because if does not feel lik Christmas Greg! No frost and no snow this year. It's abnormal! Add to it that I am working tomorrow and I did not think it was time for gifts so I had to rush last minute in the shops (and the crazy crowd). Anyway Merry Christmas! Sophie @bewareofthereader

  39. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Looks like we won't have a white one. We are looking for a new series to watch and will have to check out Travelers. I listened to Kitty and the Midnight Hour and want to continue on.

  41. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Greg! I keep hearing so many good things about Travelers but haven't tried it yet. I put Fire and Blood on my Christmas wishlist this year so I'm hoping it will be under my tree on Christmas morning. Can't wait to hear all of your thoughts on it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I applaud you for reading the new Martin book! I definitely wouldn't be up to the task. I hope you enjoy your new books and have an amazing Christmas!

  43. You've made me real curious about Travelers! Have a safe trip and enjoy your family time.

  44. I need to start reading the Game of Thrones series. I am curious about the new book but it is going to be a long while before I ever get to it. Enjoy all of your holiday travels. Merry Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great dragon (and LOTR) pics. I started Fire and Blood but put it aside for now. I needed something that demanded less attention last week. I'll pick it up again after the new year. Safe travels.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am not a fan of Game of Thrones either on TV or in print. I did like his books when he wrote science fiction. Come see my week here. Happy holidays and happy reading!

  47. Enjoy Christmas out of town, hope weather is kind to you.

  48. Are you participating in the First Book of the Year with Shelia? I'm still pondering on my First Book of the Year. I think it may be a popular, good ol' fiction book. I'm not impressed with mystery and I've certainly read enough fantasy lately.
    Safe travels to you and have a very Mele Kalikimaka with your ohana and tomodachi + get your oink on.

  49. I love the Godzilla pictures! I used to watch them on channel 11 when I was a kid before all this fancy cable shows. I hope you had a good Christmas. =)
