dates (started-finished) | author | title | short review

? - 1/3/16 | Stephen King | The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower | Wonderful, beautiful book, but Jesus, some of it is pretty damn cruel.

? - 1/6/16 | Stephen King | Under The Dome | Wonderful book, but really disturbing, and I think it's actually applicable to some shit today as well as when it was originally written.

1/12/16 - 1/13/16 | Stephen King | Gerald's Game | Definitely avoid if you're triggered by the subjects it discusses, but it's a wonderful book. Jessie is one of his best female characters, I think.

? - 1/16/16 | Cheryl Rainfield | Scars | Very triggering book, as a warning, but wonderful.

? - 1/27/16 | Stephen King | It | Amazing book. The miniseries, while damn good, does not do it justice.

? - 1/29-16 | Stephen King | Doctor Sleep | Amazing book. Abra definitely makes it, as does Danny Torrance's journey. And the True Knot are awesome villains.

? - 2/9/16 | Stephen Chbosky | The Perks of Being A Wallflower | Wonderful book.

2/10/16 - 2/10/16 | Terry Pratchett | The Color of Magic | Wonderful, entertaining book, and a good introduction into this verse.

? - 2/28/16 | Stephen King | Duma Key | Powerful, moving book.

? - 3/1/16 | Stephen King | Lisey's Story | Great book, but Scott's backstory is fucking heartwrenching.

? - 3/3/16 | Stephen King | Insomnia | Started off as confusing at first, but the ending is...really moving. And the love story in the book is just plain beautiful.

3/6/16 - 3/6/16 | Joe Hill | Heart-Shaped Box | It's usually hard to get into Hill's style for me, but I liked this one!

? - 3/6/16 | Terry Pratchett | The Light Fantastic | Wonderful, just wonderful. Really creative spin on tropes and such.

3/6/16 - 3/6/16 | Terry Pratchett | Snuff | Really enjoyable book! Don't know if I'm reading the Discworld series in the right order, but nevertheless, I'm starting to love it.

? - 3/8/16 | Stephen King | Desperation | Damn good book.

? - 3/17/16 | Stephen King | 11/22/63 | Amazing. Book. The ending is just...damn.

? - 3/25/16 | Stephen King | The Talisman | Beautiful book.

? - 3/27/16 | Stephen King | Firestarter | Great book. Charlie McGee's relationship with her dad is wonderful.

4/4/16 - 4/4/16 | Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)| Thinner | Wonderful, creepy, goddamn bleak book.

4/7/16 - 4/7/16 | Stephen King | Christine | Just bonechilling.

4/19/16 - 4/19/16 | Cheryl Rainfield | Stained | Really gripping, awesome book.

4/20/16 - 4/20/16 | Stephen King (as Richard Bachman) | The Regulators | Goddamn disturbing book.

? - 4/22/16 | Stephen King | The Tommyknockers | Actually a lot better than I thought it would be!

5/8/16 - 5/8/16 | Claudia Gray | Bloodline | Major, major step up from the last Legends stuff. Leia is a badass here.

? - 5/26/16 | Stephen King | Bag of Bones | The climax was awesome! Other than that, I'd say the book was okay.

6/7/16 - 6/7/16 | Stephen King | End of Watch | Amazing end to the Bill Hodges trilogy. Seriously.

9/2/16 - 9/3/16 | William Shatner, with Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens | Captain's Blood | The Reman plot was wasted at the end, but the cliffhanger was amazing, and, by and large, the book was really good.

9/3/16 - 9/3/16 | William Shatner, with Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens | Dark Victory | Tiberius is a scary sonuvabitch. Enough said.

What I Want To See In Episode Eight

Because a lot of the Episode Eight news I'm hearing isn't particularly encouraging (and makes me want to head-wall repeatedly), I'm mostly thinking of doing this for fun. Sort of like what I did four years ago, with this. And I guess before I proceed, I really should rack up some stuff from that post and see how TFA matched up. Comments from old post in italics, my comments in regular format.

Oh hai again, 2012.Collapse )

As for Episode Eight...Collapse )

That's all I can think of, at least. Thoughts? Comments? Disagreements? I'm definitely open.
I want to get excited about Star Wars: Episode Eight. I really do. But the more news I hear about it (and granted, they're probably not set in stone, and some of them could be rumors, like the old speculations of who would be cast in Episode Seven), the more cynical I'm starting to get.

Warning for some possible spoilery stuff -- at least in terms of development business.Collapse )
...and it was a great movie!

To boldly go where no one has gone be -- SPOILERS!Collapse )

So overall? Awesome movie. Definitely recommended.

Love Meme, Days 29 and 30

Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?

Dante and Becky from Clerks II. Hands down, the best proposal ever. I mean, there was the acting from both Rosario Dawson and Brian O'Halloran, and the music...it's just magic all around. A bit of humor in stuff like Elias' joke about "One ring to rule them all" and Dante and Randall rebuilding the Quick Stop, but overall, just a lot of heartwarming stuff.

Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever!

Jedi Exile/Atton, Revan/Bastila, any ship from the Stephen King universe, Anakin/Padme, and Aragorn/Arwen.


...and this is going to sound crazy, and justifiably so, but honestly? It was better than I thought it was going to be.

To boldly go where no one has gone be -- SPOILERS!Collapse )

So, honestly? It does have its share of problems, but it really isn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Love Meme, Day 28

Day 28 - A pairing that you will never understand?

Kylo/Hux. Maybe my shipping detector is a bit off, but I didn't really see the subtext. That's my take on it, though.

Rest of questions.Collapse )


Love Meme, Day 27

Day 27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?

Trigger warning for discussion of abuse.Collapse )

Rest of questions.Collapse )


Love Meme, Days

Day 25 - A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out?

Probably Obi-Wan/Dorme from Star Wars. I know it definitely sounds very crack-y, but I think they'd be sweet together. Dorme definitely has the same relaxed, mellow sort of nature that Obi-Wan has at times. Or Obi-Wan/Sabe. Unfortunately, thanks to the rise of the Empire and what happens in A New Hope, I have a feeling it probably would end tragically.

And in terms of canon pairings, Ben Mears/Susan Norton from Salem's Lot. I mean, they really were adorable -- at least before Barlow got ahold of Susan. (I hate Barlow, I really do. Wonderful villain, amazing dialogue -- I know that his talk with Corey Bryant is one of my favorite parts of the book -- but what he does to Susan Norton and Father Callahan is just horrible.

Day 26 - A pairing that you hated and ended up loving?

Well, I wouldn't say "love" exactly, but I have softened a bit towards the idea of Obi-Wan/Padme. Mostly thanks to some extremely talented graphic artists, and writing them in my Jedi Padme verse. And canonically, Leonard/Penny on The Big Bang Theory (yeah, yeah, give me a break, my parents and my aunt watch it) got on my nerves at first, but eventually it all evened out (from what I saw) and really got to give them some authentic and even really touching moments. So...bravo on that.

Rest of questions.Collapse )


Love Meme, Day 24

Day 24 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly?

On the subject of KOTOR, MExile/Atris/Handmaiden. First time I played as a male Exile, I pretty much flipped out when I saw her torturing the Handmaiden and ended up killing her. Not exactly a light side thing to do, really, but there you go. I'd say it turned out badly just because of how out of control it got.

I guess it doesn't help that re: Handmaiden, I felt kind of protective towards her. There were always characters I felt protective towards, like Bastila, Visas Marr, Mission, etc. And there was something about Handmaiden that always broke my heart. Her mother died at Malachor (and if you believe the Kreia-is-Kae theory, faked her death and is now basically the Chessmaster of the game), Revan killed her dad, and she was bullied by her half-sisters thanks to something that wasn't her fault (I mean, it was hardly her fault that her dad basically cheated and that was how she was born. People can't help how they're born, really). And there was definitely that sort of sheltered, innocent quality to her that doesn't, mind you, undermine her ability to kick some ass. So yeah, I adore Handmaiden. It sucks that without a mod, she can't travel with the Female Exile.

Rest of questions.Collapse )
