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.

I am excited to announce that the new blog look is finally up and running.   Woot Woot!!  I am feeling 100% better after the pneumonia. 

On the blog:
-I review  The Book of Three by Llyod Alexander
- Max the Curse of Brotherhood Video Game Review  finally I beat another game!
-Top Ten Tuesday- Classic Books where I do a nifty graphic that I made
-I tell you all about my goodreads Book Club July Picks
- Comic Adventures Issue #14  features Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, Jack of Fables, Justice League
-New Wonderland Look  Let's talk about the new blog look

Around the Blogospere:
-Books a True Story asks how do you deal with racism in classic novels?
-For Review VS For Review Consideration is really interesting by On Starships and Dragonwings.  Do you take the reviews books you get seriously??  This is why I don't really get a lot of ARCs.  I don't feel I have enough time to commit to them.
-What's on Netflix that is bookish??  Here is a list by Book Riot

Internet:
I love love Fireworks.  Happy 4th of July everyone!  Here is an amazing video where someone flies a drone into a Fireworks show.  It is really actually amazing.  I love drone videos.  Come neat things can be done with them.



Books Books Books:
Just finished Cress.  Look for the review this week.  About to start Mary Poppins for my Next Project Disney this week. I am excited to give that book a shot.  There are plenty of graphic novels/comics that I need to catch up on too.

  3. That is a seriously cool video, they seemed to be right in the middle of them. Will have to check out your Guardians review, with the movie coming I've been looking at the trade paperbacks a bit.


    The new look is great, by the way! Congrats... :)

  10. The blog looks great Angie!! I'm very impressed with all the designing and coordination. And fireworks. Sigh. I love them but not when my 3 year old decides she's scared and won't go to sleep until 10:30 (we couldn't see them from our house...just hear them). Maybe in a few years we can go back to loving them. LOL! Hope you had a great holiday!

  12. Ooh, I hope you enjoy Mary Poppins! I adore the Disney movie and reading the book was, for the most part, like reading the movie :)

  13. I know a lot of people with kids have issues with fireworks. People with pets sometimes have problems with them too. I often wonder about that in my neighborhood... there are fireworks that go off every weekend for the local baseball home games.

  16. I just got on netflix right now... I really need to finish Supernatural. I have one more season and just keep putting it off.

  17. OH CRESS!! I've heard so much about the Cinder series! Been putting it off for some time because I have this weird fear of cyborgs and space and umm it's probably just me being silly. Will be succumbing to all that peer pressure soon I guess haha xD Looking forward to your review! Have a great week ahead :))

  19. I don't think that this is the type of cyborgs you are used to. Though there is some space in the book.. but nothing is scary or should make you scared I don't think. It is kind of a good mixture of fantasy/sci-fi. I think it's just unique to anything I have read in a while.

  20. I really need to get started reading Mary Poppins for this week's Project Disney. I am soooo behind. Hoping to start and finish tomorrow.
