Happy Easter to all who celebrate! I love this time of year- the sense of renewal, the onset of spring, and of course celebrating the holiday. Sign-ups for the Bookish Games started this week- you can find that here. You can sign up if you want, or join the Spectator Chat. Sometimes it's fun just to watch the chaos. What are the Bookish Games? Well it's an online book version of Mafia where participants are given roles from the book. Last team standing wins. This edition is Nevernight by Kristoff. Let's see, in other news... oh Game of Thrones is back! Episode two already this weekend! And now that I have HBO NOW (I only get it for GoT) I guess I might watch Westworld S2. Did anyone watch it??  


As I was putting this post together I came across something called Unseen Westeros- it's an art exhibition they did back in January to showcase concept art inspired by Game of Thrones. It's also a Kickstarter with an art book you can purchase. I've included some links below- the point of it is to showcase locations that you haven't seen on the show. 

This week I'll be reviewing Killing November and maybe I'll even do a liveblog watch of Jurassic World 2.

  3. I wasn't a fan of the original Westworld film so I haven't been keen to watch the series though my dad is keen to see it. I'm a nervous wreck about this coming battle in GoT though!

    1. I know! And I thought Westworld S1 was just okay, so I really have no idea about S2!

  5. I love this time of year too. Everything is blooming and so green.I'm looking forward to watching Jurassic World II also. The first one was fun. Happy Easter, Greg!

  8. Happy Easter, Greg! I admit I wasn't blown away by GoT last week. I think I had built it up and was expecting epic. I did enjoy the reunions (esp Jon and Arya). The claws are going to come out with Sansa and Daenarys. And the look between Jamie and Bran at the end? Bahaha! Classic. :) Can't wait to see what tomorrow episode brings.

    1. Happy Easter! I wasn't either. I think it was WAY too built up! But I'm excited to see what they do for us this week!

      And yes that ending!

  9. Happy Easter to you too! I haven't seen Dazed and Confused in an age. What a blast from the past.

  10. Let us know what you think of Westworld if you watch it, I've been very curious about that one too (and we also did the HBO NOW things just for GoT, lol). Love the art pieces this week, and the emphasis on Unseen Westeros is so appropriate!

    1. I will. I'm kind of excited as the concept of Westworld really appeals to me- I'm just not sure about the execution.

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  14. Ah, yes, my Twitter feed was full of GoT talk that I didn't understand because I haven't ever seen it lol. I love the circle bedroom picture, it looks so cozy! And the herbalist one is so cute! Happy Easter :-)

    1. I liked those too. I was wondering if the circular pic was on a ship or ?? And oh my gosh Twitter goes CRAZY with Got!

  18. Happy Easter!
    I watched Westworld S2 and, excluding the awesome ending, I wasn't a fan. The story jumped around way more than in S1. It was like they were expecting me to do hardcore research with notes to keep everything on a timeline. I adored S1 and all the time jumping did great things for that section of the story but, for me, it was too much in S2 so just beware of that :)

    1. No? That's good to know. I've heard similar things, so honestly- I'm not sure what to expect from S2, but I'll definitely go in keeping that in mind! :)

  19. Enjoy your bookish games Greg! And yes how can anyone ignore that GOT is back! :D)))

  20. Happy Easter Greg. And while I have not watched GoT, everyone around me is obsessed now so I might have to some day right? Wonderful pictures as usual.

  21. I agree with you about there being an amazing sense of renewal at this time of year. I think it helps that spring is coming and that always makes me happy. And I am very excited for the next episode of Game of Thrones I can see it being an epic final season. I'm currently rewatching just to make me extra confused about what's going on.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I mostly get HBO for GoT, too, but sometimes they have good movies. I’m so excited that GoT is back. I’m counting down the hours until tonight’s episode.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  23. Happy Easter! Happy Spring! I got in a frenzy about cleaning everything up this week. I hope I can continue with that momentum. Have a great week!

  24. Bookish Gamessss! I wonder if anyone else has signed up before they closed the sign ups! I kind of hope so just because I imagine it is a pain to rearrange numbers and I want them to get the target 16 hah. Happy Easter!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bookish Games sounds like so much fun. I need to check out the Spectator Chat! I love the cover to They All Fall Down. I hope you enjoy it. I hope you are enjoying your Easter. We started out with an Easter Egg hunt around the house and will be sitting down for dinner in a little while. We aren't having the most traditional meal, but then, Easter isn't really a big holiday for us. If it weren't for my daughter, I imagine it would be just another Sunday. I did manage to get some spring cleaning done yesterday. There's still a lot more to do. That will have to be next weekend's project! Have a great week, Greg.

  26. Happy Easter to you and your family. Hopefully, we are past are cold weather and it is only warmer from here on out! My son has HBO and I plan to get caught up with GoT while watching the grandkids. I am a few seasons behind! Have a great week.

  27. I have You Owe Me a Murder on my TBR. I'll be reading it in the next week or two. My updates for the week of April 22

  28. I love this week's pulp fiction cover. πŸ‘✨

    I also loved the ambient. I want to start meditating again, and this one would be perfect. 🌌

    The Unseen Westeros art is amazing! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

    Happy Easter and have a wonderful week. 🌞

  29. Happy Easter, your hemisphere certainly has the new life aspect with Spring going along with it.

  30. Lol, I bought a 3-month subscription to Now TV here in the UK for the sole purpose of watching GoT! The things we do... πŸ˜†

  31. I'm trying to catch up on some blogs but let's be honest. I'm still pretty useless. I did manage to read some yesterday and it kind of kept my mind off of things. I am really enjoying GoT this year but I'm so sad thinking about some of my faves dying.

  32. Hope you had a good Easter! I'm curious what you thought about Killing November. :)

  33. Hope your Easter was great. I kind of gave up on Westworld S2. I don't know, it just wasn't holding our attention. GoT, on the other hand ... LOVE

  34. I hope you had a lovely Easter. I am looking forward to your review of Killing November. It's been on my radar. Have a grand week!

  35. I liked Killing November. I'm not a Game of Thrones fan. The appeal sort of escapes me. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  36. I hope you had a great Easter, Greg! It is a lovely time of year. I thought that GoT was awesome last night. I can't wait for next week!

  37. I hope you had a nice Easter weekend. Curious to hear your thoughts on the second episode of GoT. I'm also looking forward to your review for Killing November. I have a hold on that book at the library but won't get it for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Happy Easter!! We haven't watched an episode of GoT yet, I don't know how that has happened!! Lol. And I don't quite understand the bookish games but it sounds fun. And I loved Nevernight!! What a great book. :) Have fun in the games, and good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That Dazed and Confused scene is the best! I love that movie. I can't even count how many times I've seen it though I admit my sympathies lie much more with the parents in the beer buying scene than they used to! Hope you're having a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'll be looking forward to that review of Killing November! And I hope you had a good Easter weekend if you celebrate it as well :) The Bookish Games sounds so cool and like a fun concept!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm looking forward to your review of Killing November. I have an audible credit available and I've been debating using it for that. The bookish games sound really cool! I'm not reliable enough to be on a team tho but I love the concept. I hope you had a great Easter.

  42. I so need to see the new GOT episodes. Life just has been crazy, so I haven't seen them yet. I keep telling everyone to stop talking about it when I'm around! LOL!!
    I hope you're having a great week!

  43. I didn't see if you reviewed Killing November. I am excited to see what you thought of it. I hope it was great. I have to go searching!
