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.

Love Meme, Day Twenty

Day 20 - The 'can't stand the sexual tension anymore' pairing?

Atton/Exile, so very much. I know that Chris Avellone, one of the game's designers, isn't a fan of romance, but it would have been nice to get some sort of...them getting together as it were just because they worked so well together.

Rest of questionsCollapse )


Love Meme Day Nineteen

Day 19 - A pairing you’ve rooted for since the beginning?

Anakin/Padme. I mean, even before I officially got into Star Wars, I was pretty curious and intrigued by that pairing. It must have been when I was a wee elementary schooler who ran across someone else's copy of the Patricia C. Wrede junior novelization. They usually have some sort of stills from the movie inside, those Junior novelizations, and one that small me stumbled across was a picture of Anakin and Padme during the "don't shut me out" scene, and needless to say, I was pretty intrigued, especially by the caption (something along the lines of "Anakin and Padme share their love, and their secret") especially since I had never really seen a sympathetic villain like that prior to this (except maybe Galbatorix, but (a) his backstory was mostly related secondhand and (b) I don't know if it was elementary school or middle school that I picked up a copy of Eragon. I do remember I used to raid my sibling's book basket for books, however. I was a little bit of a book thief when it came to us two. XD) and I thought the idea of a good guy slowly going bad was a really fascinating idea. It wasn't until middle school, of course, that I picked up the prequel novelizations, but in elementary school, the seed had definitely been planted.

Rest of questions.Collapse )


Love Meme, Day Eighteen

Day 18 - What is the cutest pairing?

Harry/Hermione, at least in the Harry Potter movies. There really is something about Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe where they simply work beautifully together. Stuff like the dance scene in Deathly Hallows part one, or just chatting together in the movie version of Goblet of Fire -- there's definitely a sort of comfort and ease between them that's really endearing.

Harry/Luna. Honestly, book or movie version, they're adorable, and Luna really is honest-to-God good for him. Her comforting him after Sirius' death, for starters, their interactions in HBP, things like that.

Movie!Ron/Hermione. The filmmakers really take the uncomfortable elements out and really focus on what, exactly, draws the two to one another.

Doctor/Rose. The interactions between those two were incredibly sweet.

Rey/Finn. Seriously, those two were adorable, such as their congratulating one another on outwitting First Order ships.

Rest of questions.Collapse )


Love Meme, Day Seventeen

Day 17 - A pairing you thought would never work out, but did?

Always.Collapse )

Rest of questions.Collapse )

Current State of the USS Hadhafang

So yesterday was a good day. Invited a friend over, we hung out, talked, watched Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (let's just say my talk with him about it, and his dad talking about it, fueled his curiosity). Let's say we had a great time riffing on it, and his reactions were pretty much gold. Seriously, gold. (He pretty much thought the same thing as I did -- not an abomination, but not great either. And he liked Sybok well enough, as did I)

We watched The Undiscovered Country afterwards; we had to pause briefly because there was a storm outside and my friend got nervous about it, but fortunately, the storm cleared up later on. It was a movie that I was already intending to watch, but never quite finished before. But I did yesterday -- and I should apologize for not completing it yesterday; let's say I was pretty tired, worried about school, etc. But like I said, I finished it yesterday. How was it? Well, it started off rough but got really good by the end.

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

So overall? I recommend it. It's not my favorite Nicholas Meyer Star Trek film (that would be Wrath of Khan ) but it's still really good.

Day Sixteen

Day 16 - What is the absolute worst pairing?

Warning for triggering content.Collapse )

Rest of questions.Collapse )


Love Meme, Day Fourteen and Fifteen

Day 15 - What is your favorite real life pairing?

Answer under cut.Collapse )

Rest of questions.Collapse )


Love Meme, Day Thirteen

Day 13 - Your favorite television pairing?

Here there be spoilers later on!Collapse )
