Sunday Post

Let's chat about what's going on this week... on my blog.. on other blogs... on the internet... and just everywhere!    I link up my post to Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves.

On the Blog:
-Comic Adventures  issue # 7 talks about Guardians of the Galaxy (soon to be a movie), Jack of Fables volume 3, Batman volume 3, and Joker Death of the Family.
-A new Project Disney about the Lion King!  I compare it to Hamlet by Shakespeare... speaking of Hamlet.. I review that too!!

Around the Blogospere:
I am a little behind this week on other blogger's posts since it was Spring Break and I was really busy.  I am trying to catch up this weekend on the blog's I follow.  Here are a few posts that I did catch: 
-Bloggiesta is this week.  If you haven't joined in before you should.  It is a lot of fun and I have met quite a few bloggers joining in!
-Have you ever checked out JC's Book Haven's sidekick series???  It's fun and there is some great artwork going on too!
-Because Reading is better then Real Life talks about the nonsense that is Facebook.. the fact that you might have 1000 likes but only 15 see the post!
- The Once Upon a Time readathon at Stainless Steel Droppings is starting!!  Super fun everyone so check it out!!
-Bookish Whimsy talks about Circulating Libraries.  I love this so much! 

Internet:
The Maze Runner movie has been pushed back... so I was not sure about it. Then I saw the trailer and it looks decent!
 

Might as well put in TWO movie trailers based off books this week... The Giver trailer was also released:


Books Books Books:

I didn't get too many books this week.  It has been a busy week with friends visiting for spring break so I didn't get a lot of reading done or blogging done.  But I will be back strong next week. I do have a ton of comics to catch up on.  While on Spring Break I visited a GINORMOUS comic book store called Mile High Comics.  It's in a huge warehouse and when I say it's full I mean it's FULL!! OH and yes... that comic is $17,010.00!!! 










How was your week?????

  1. Oooh so many lovely comics. I have yet to visit an actual comic book store. I'm hoping to do so sometime in the future! I think I'd find a lot I wanted.

  2. I love visiting them. Usually they will have geeky items throughout the store... not just comics. Tee-shirts, posters, figurines. I like too that there are a lot of people in the store who are interested in the same things as me too!

  3. Sweet stack of graphics - you're obviously a super hero fan. I never have gotten too into the super hero ones. I like SF and Fantasy ones.

    yeah I'm glad The Maze Runner got pushed back it will give me time to read it cause I've been meaning to FOREVER.

    The Giver - guess I better check out and see what that one is.

  4. Someone told me tonight that the Giver was a movie before now so this is a remake of that movie. I have to look up the facts on that one though. I have all of a sudden been addicted to superhero comics lately. I am racing through them! Tomorrow = reading that huge stack all day.

  5. I will check out your Guardians of the Galaxy review, very curious about that one. I kinda want to see where they're going with this team with the movie coming up. I haven't read any of the new stuff yet...

    And Mile High Comics looks like a great store. I've heard of it of course but never seen pics, looks huge!

  10. I'm not really into comics, but my 9 year old daughter LOVES them, and right now they're the only books I can get her to read. She's taking AR (Accelerated Reader) tests at school with comic books right now-which drives her teacher batty, lol. But, hey they count and it's getting her to read!

  16. I didn't love the Maze Runner book either.. and then I saw the trailer to the movie and thought.. WOW! Though trailers can be tricks ... you go to the movie and yuck!

  17. The Giver trailer isn't making me want to see the movie, but I do want to read the book now!

  18. It is a good book. It's been many many years since I read it so I do need to re-read it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow! A $17K comic? That's just incredible - why can't I own something like that? And that place is huge!


    I hope you enjoyed your spring break :)

  20. I think that comic is Flash #1. So it's when his character is introduced and it was in really good condition. A collector would love to have that.

  21. That comic book store looks to be on the level of the much beloved Powell's in Portland, OR! I might have to add it to my must visit list.

  22. I am about to google Powell's right now!
