Hey there avid readers! I hope everyone is having a great week. It’s freakishly hot here in Florida, but it’s the summer so I’m sure it’s hot wherever you are to…unless you’re below the equator. It’s been a busy two weeks for me, I was recently promoted to being a manager at my local theater, which is great! So I haven’t had a ton of time to read during my lunch breaks…provided I get one. Sometimes it just gets too busy and when I calms down, it’s time for me to go home. Which is why I snack whenever I’m in the office, just in case you know. Run in, have a quick bite of my granola bar, run back out on the floor. Also, I have become addicted to honey-lemon water, with a spoonful of sugar. I drink about 16oz of that a day now. I didn’t think I would like it, but I love it!
However, you’re not here to hear of my social life and addictions, and if you like catching up with me, well great! But here is my weekly reading list for this coming week. Let’s hope I can get some reading done this week. Happy reading! Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #51”
The Four Horsemen resurface and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet.
Almost as good as it’s predecessor, but the film suffers from a big problem of overreaching which seems to be a big problem with Hollywood lately, just make things bigger, bring everything in, the story comes second. Same thing happened right here. The tricks are too big, too outlandish, and yes, I know that magic tricks can be as big as a plane, but for the film purposes, the story should come first, not second, to make for a more enjoyable experience.

And when all the madness puts Madeline Hatter in jeopardy, the two must find a way to bring everyone together to save their best friend.
Hey there avid readers, I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. You know, as busy as I was this weekend I actually managed to read two books. Woo! The South Florida SuperCon was tons of fun, but man was I exhausted when it was over. My legs hurt from all the walking, but I met a ton of people, people I’m fans of and took a bunch of pictures you’ve already seen on Instagram. I met Claudia Gray, Kevin J. Anderson, Tony Bedard, Walter Koenig and the great Henry Winkler who just so happens went to my college (Emerson College) and hugged me 4 times, including giving me a kiss on my cheek. Yeah, it was awesome. But anyway, since I read two books this weekend and I’m already halfway through another, here’s my weekly reading list for this week. Happy reading!Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #50”
