Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy picks up right where season 1 left off: the gang is about to be destroyed, with the rest of the world, by the moon crashing into Earth (thanks, Vanya). So Five does what he does best and zaps them all out of there, back to the 1960s. Unfortunately, they wind up . . .
If you’ve watched the preview for Hulu’s Palm Springs and thought, um, this just looks like a modern-day Groundhog Day, you’re only half right. It does have the same premise---a man finds himself trapped in a time loop, living out the same day over and over again---but it’s a fresh take on that idea, and brings enough of its own . . .
Lara Jean and Peter are together now. For real. And LJ feels like she's in a dream. But every time she experiences a 'first' with Peter, she can't help think about the fact that he's already had these firsts---with Gen. And then, suddenly, one of Lara Jean's past love interests, John Ambrose, comes back into her life, and Laura Jean can't . . .
In 2019, I decided to post about more than just books and adaptations. Though this is predominately a book blog, I am also interested in video games, pop culture, movies/TV in general, and things like that. So I thought that, along with my 2020 Book Adaptations post, I'd also make a list of non-bookish . . .
One of my favorite activities at the start of the new year is checking out what books will be made into a movie or TV series. Of course, it's not an all-inclusive list, since news about adaptations comes out randomly throughout the year, but it's a fun way to start planning my year of films to see. With 2019 being a somewhat . . .
In honor of Halloween this year, I read for the first time Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House. Obviously I was dying to watch the Netflix series when it came out, but I told myself I'd get around to it. After finally reading the novel this year, I discovered there are film adaptations, too. I decided to only watch the . . .
I've been dying to watch this movie ever since it came out on Netflix. But you know me... Can't watch the movie till I read the book. I usually prefer reading series as opposed to listening to them on Audiobook, but I knew it'd be ages until I ever decided to buy the To All the Boys series. So I just went ahead and listened to the . . .
Okie doke. Let's go. Okay. I've been waiting to watch Love, Simon until I could get my hands on Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. When I noticed the film on HBO, I decided to just go ahead and listen to the audiobook at work, as I wasn't actively searching for the physical copy, anyway. I really enjoyed the audiobook and was excited to watch the film. So last weekend, I . . .
Stella is a typical teenager—she goes to school, hangs out with friends, and makes YouTube videos. But she also has Cystic Fibrosis, a disease she's determined to not let kill her. All she has to do is make her way up the transplant list and get herself a new lung. That gives her an extra 5 years. She needs . . .
Do you consume the book or the movie adaptation first? And what factors contribute to your decision? This has always been a matter of importance to me, though I've found other people (my girlfriend, for instance) aren't necessarily concerned with the decision. To most people, especially those that don't read, it's not important. If one . . .
