a couple films and some books

Movies/Documentaries:

  1. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, watched with my sister over Thanksgiving
  2. Sour Grapes, a documentary recommended to me about wine fraud

Books/Novellas:

  1. One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews
  2. The Trouble with Dukes by Grace Burrowes
  3. When a Marquis Chooses a Bride by Ella Quinn
  4. Marquess of Mistletoe by Grace Burrowes

I really like the Innkeeper series by Ilona Andrews, and One Fell Sweep delivered. While I did follow the online serial in its entirety, the published version is much more refined. I have to admit that one of the main reasons why I like it is because Dina chooses Sean, who, despite being a werewolf, was raised and born on Earth, and therefore gets all the inside jokes relating to pop culture, instead of Dina having to explain it to him. I’m not fond of the trope where the human female falls in love with a non-human male, and every time she refers to pop culture, the non-human male is confused. In One Fell Sweep, Sean even continues to quote from the movie that is being referenced (while trying not to laugh). The other thing I’ve enjoyed in the last two books are the sibling conversations. In Sweep in Peace, it’s George and Jack, and in One Fell Sweep, it’s Dina and Maud.

New books I’ve finished:

  • Jack by Grace Burrowes
  • The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
  • Temptations of a Wallflower by Eva Leigh (Zoe Archer)

Started watching the newest season of the Great British Baking Show (Bakeoff) on PBS again. There’s something just so mesmerizing of the Britishness of the show, and I love it.

Also finished watching the entirety of the Euros 2016, and my heart just broke for France during the finals. I really wanted them to win (since they defeated Germany in the semis)… sigh…

I’ve been watching random episodes of Iron Chef America on Netflix… because Netflix is a godsend when I’m sick and don’t feel like going outside.

marvel tv shows

I finished watching Marvel’s Jessica Jones, and started watching Daredevil on Netflix. I really like Jessica Jones, although I think they really dragged out killing the villain for too long. She had at least 5 times where he could have been shot, and yet of course, they had to drag it out for sake of the plot. That being said, it’s a dark gritty show, and it turns so many tropes on their heads or does the genderbender.
