City of Brass Goodreads RT : 4.47 , An imaginative alchemy of The Golem and the Jinni, The Grace of Kings, and One Thousand and One Nights, in which the future of a magical Middle Eastern kingdom rests in the hands of a clever and defiant young con artist with miraculous healing gifts.
OBSIDIO 3rd installment of the Illuminae Files series !! Can’t wait!
UNHEARTED Goodreads RT: 4,14 When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.
The Warded Man Goodreads RT: 4.27 As darkness falls after sunset, the corelings rise—demons who possess supernatural powers and burn with a consuming hatred of humanity.
You Only Get One Shot : Goodreads RT: 4,23, What would you do if someone demanded you write the best story of your life, to be judged online? That your life depended on it.
Beautiful Lies by Lisa Unger – Thanks to Kim and her The Red Hunter review, I found myself intrigued by this author and her books. Might as well try one of her biggest hits first when I get the chance, right? 😀
L’Adversaire by Emmanuel Carrère – The title translates to The Adversary (French to English). This was a book recommendation by a friend and, honestly, it definitely sounds like territory that I would explore. The story of an ordinary person doing the insane (5 murders)? Count me in.
Survival in Auschwitz by Primo Levi – The Great Orangutan wrote a wonderful review for this book, mentioning “Levi is the darkness to Frankl’s light” (referring to Frankl’s Man’s Search For Meaning). Safe to say I was drooling at that thought. I was sold.
Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence – There’s no surprise here. After thoroughly enjoying Red Sister, I’m just impatiently waiting for Grey Sister, its sequel, to finally come out. The release of its cover is just the best teaser a fan could get! 😀
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis – Okay… Not really a discovery. I just never added it to my TBR on Goodreads till now. 😀 I’ve read it in French when it first released and I’ve seen some of the movies (everything is blur, except for the Wardrobe hihi). I think it’ll be much more interesting if I read it now. Right? 😀
Saw this amazing movie directed by Kathryn Bigelow, the same lady behind The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty. Based on a true story, with some great dramatization, Detroit was thrilling from start to finish and greatly built-up so much rage in me as I was watching all the hate and injustice that was going on. Intrigued? You definitely have to give it a shot. Will Poulter, the racist cop, is also phenomenal in this movie!
Leave it to Netflix to give us crazy good shows. Ozark is a BEAUTIFUL and brilliant show about money laundering, but its level of craziness is just so tantalizing. The show is filmed with such finesse and simplicity that when big moments happen, they happen with intense dramatic power. Give it a shot! It might sometimes be a bit predictable, but seeing Jason Bateman go from comedy to something this serious is such a delight to watch!
If you didn’t hear about this one, you must’ve been living under a rock. Game of Thrones returned to deliver it’s before-last season and it simply DID NOT DISAPPOINT! While I thought they really rushed through a lot of the sub-plots and made a bunch of mistakes and inconsistencies (especially related to time), the level of epicness remains HIGH!! Those final scenes of the finale are just mind-blowing.
Yeh… It took me this long to finally watch it. Actually, I was just waiting for it to be released on Netflix. 🙂 Now I’m finally up to date with all the Star Wars movie! Rogue One was a nice little story that started off slow and only truly manages to captivate me later into the movie. Can I just say that the real highlight in this movie is K-2SO? That thing was HILARIOUS. I sort of feel like the droids are always the best part of these Star Wars movies though… hihih 🙂
The Defenders are finally out kicking ass. While it takes some time to get things going, the show succeeds in reuniting the gang and offer us an entertaining short season to hype things up for the upcoming seasons and shows to come out on Netflix.
