Book Recs

I discovered this Youtube channel this week, and this video has some pretty cool recs for! I definitely want to read a bit more sci-fi (soft or hard, young/middle grade or adult), and also some sapphic stories. So this list is pretty good for me.

I added City of Shattered Light to my list!

City of Shattered Light by Claire Winn

As darkness closes in on the city of shattered light, an heiress and an outlaw must decide whethe…

Got a Kobo

On the last news (#26), I mentioned that I was going to migrate to Kobo, but maybe not buy it yet. Of course I bought it.

I had points on Indigo's rewards program, and they were running a 'your points are worth more' promotion last weekend. That plus the Kobo Libra 2 being on sale (CAD$20 off), it was just too good of an opportunity to pass on.

Already got a couple books at the library - the 2 I'm currently reading. Also added a few holds, and saw that they have a bunch of the Dresden Files books. The library is going to make me save all the device's money in a while.


Ruined Childhood Cinematic Universe

So, you probably hear there's a Winnie The Pooh horror movie that just came out, and there's a Peter Pan in the works, and also Bambi is in planning? Now, seems this is all being planned as a cinematic universe that's all about turning our childhoods into nightmare fuel.

I'm not a big fan of slasher horror, but I guess I wanna check it out? At least the Peter Pan one.

Already on the docket: an adaptation of Peter Pan that finds the spritely Tinkerbell in recovery from drugs even harder than applause.

Winne The Pooh: Blood and Honey gets a cinematic universe, naturally

As Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey already nears $1 million at the box office, Rhys Frake-Waterfield teases a whole universe of gory childhood tales.

The A.V. Club

Zootopia 2

This definitely made my day today. It took me years to finally watch Zootopia - so I definitely missed all the online buzz. But when I did finally watch it back in March 2021, I just LOVED IT so much!

It'll definitely be fun to return to this world, and this time, participate in the online buzz/discussions around it, see fanart, cosplays, etc.
