Happy Christmas season everyone! Yes it is here and I am happy to report that I have started Christmas shopping. Yay me. And to everyone who's done already- boo!     

Thanks to everyone who shared favorite Christmas memories last week. That was fun! This week I was super excited to see one of my favorite graphic novel series continuing- the French/ Belgian series Return to Aldebaran was released recently. I had a blast revisiting these characters and my review will be Thursday. My reading is still in the hole unfortunately- I'm just not super motivated to pick up a book- but it's the holiday season so whatever.

Also this week I started The Stranded, a Thai series on Netflix. Anyone watching?

  1. I'm cackling at "Homicide Johnny" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ If I was ever a rouge killer, that's the kind of name I'd want bwhaha. And NO I am not watching Stranded because I am a failure. The Expanse is back next week I think! The real question is, will I manage to watch that? (Spoiler, probably not.) I love your excuse for not reading being "holiday season" like you couldn't possibly squeeze time in between your gig as actual Santa Claus πŸ˜‚ Just like me with "sorry can't watch new shows because S4 just came back around and I just enjoy radiation fires too much". LOVE the deserted waters picture, too! And the cryo, but for the obvious reasons!

  2. I started Christmas shopping a long time ago, haha! I think I finished in October?! Look, I am just an anxious person who likes to get things done and out of the way!

  3. D'oh, I missed all the Christmas stories last week because I was away on the road, but I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and yay, I'm definitely feeling the Christmas vibes in the air! And just how cool is that Back Home II pic! The perfect fantasy library looks like this :D

  5. I have finally started buying Christmas presents, too! Thank goodness there's quite a few I can get online. I don't really have time to go downtown to go shopping for 'real'.
    Have a wonderful weekend, Greg!

  6. I'm still struggling to get through the last of my reading for the year. My Goodreads target seems to be getting further away however hard I try!!!

  7. I'm hitting the shopping hard this weekend, and I'm also doing lots of online shopping this year. It's hard to believe Christmas is only a few weeks away 😬

  8. Will I ever read a book again Greg??? I. Don't. Know. lol I am perversely glad you are struggling too hahaha

    So...I did already finish and ship all my gifts. Except for Kevin but sometimes we buy one bigger gift to share so I need to see what we're doing this year.

  9. Is anyone ever really done with Christmas shopping? I always feel like I am missing something. Good luck finding all the best gifts.

  10. I'm a bit behind on my Goodreads challenge for the first time. Need to add physical books I read. And I'm reading a lot but failing on writing those reviews. LOL

  11. Bad Kitty Cat *laughs* I will never tire of the covers you find! Sangre's cover does look luscious, and The Stranded... is dystopian? I don't like dystopia's but I am loving that Netflix's diversity in programming.

  12. So far I´ve done no Christmas shopping. Just not in the mood for it. In fact, whenever I go grocery shopping and they play Christmas music I could go nuts. Oh well ... Have a great weekend and new week ahead, Greg.

  13. Yay for getting your Christmas shopping started! I still have a couple people left, of course the hardest ones, my parents!

  14. Lol I love the look of that book, Bad Kitty Cat.

    I always have a hard time focusing on reading this time of year! I get so distracted by everything else. :) Enjoy the holiday season, and yay for starting shopping! :)

  15. I am more a bah humbug than a yay Christmas, but that is just me. :) I liked your mini review and the artwork does look great. I am curious.

    Have a great week and happy reading!

  18. I haven't even started Christmas shopping. I need to get on it. Hope you get over the slump soon!

  19. I wish I was done shopping for the holidays. I need to ship all my gifts across the country, which means I should probably get my rear in gear. LoL

  20. I am finished with my Christmas shopping! Ha ha. I'm just waiting for the last of it to come in the mail. πŸ˜‡

    Thanks for the ambient! πŸš€

    I love Coming Home II. I would love a sunny room in the clouds. ☁☁

    Have a wonderful new week! 🌞

  21. Greg I think one day you'll just have to visit Belgium and I'll go with you on a tour of our book shops specialized in graphic books!

  22. Happy Christmas season. I have my tree up and the apartment is decorated.

  23. I've actually been eying The Stranded all day! I was curious about it but then my brain pooped out on me and now I'm like, eh, I don't have the energy to start you right now. BUT, I am still staring longingly at it and will probably start it at some point this week. Hope the week ahead treats you well!

    1. I know the feeling! Do I start this show, and do I really feel like it lol? I'm two episodes into The Stranded but last night I tried Immortals, which is a vamp show, and I... kinda like it??

  24. I've only just started Christmas shopping, too! And that blonde beauty on the cover of Homicide Johnny - is it just me, or is she a dead ringer for a younger Meryl Streep? Have a great week, Greg!

  25. I'm so excited about Christmas! I just love this time of year! We got our Christmas tree today and I'm so ready to start decorating! LOL!!

  29. I’ve barely done any Christmas shopping.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  30. Glad to know I'm not the only one who is just starting Christmas shopping. I see all these people who are like "oh, I finished weeks ago" and and I cannot relate. LOL I fell you on the lack of reading. I just have not been in the mood to read lately. It's such a busy season so I'm sure once all the holiday craziness passes I'll be right back at it.

  31. Both pulp covers are a hoot. Deserted Waters is my favorite image this week. BTW: We're not done shopping either.

  32. I hadn't even heard of The Stranded but after watching that trailer, I need to check it out. We spend most of our movie time this weekend watching V Wars. Only two episodes left but I'm really enjoying it. And I ADORE seeing Snoopy and the gang. I actually just grabbed a new Snoopy ornament this weekend.

  33. JP Delaney's book sounded so compelling but I still havent made my way around to it!

  34. I love those old timey crime covers so much!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm a Grinch...and I don't even have enough money to treat myself - so no Christmas shopping for me. I hope yours goes smoothly!

    ReplyDelete
  36. The Stranded looks intense! Enjoy your viewing and I hope you get the desire to pick up a book soon. :-)

  37. I love that home picture with the crazy gorgeous library.
    And,nope, still not started Christmas shopping - loads of time *gulps*

  38. I'm not doing christmas presents this year so no shopping for me! But I relate actually - toward the end of the year my reading mood always dwindles and I let myself get distracted by other things instead :)
