So you loved Good Omens: Now What?

So, you loved Good Omens, now what?

The recently premiered mini-series, Good Omens, on Amazon Prime is currently all the rage on my twitter feed. The series is an adaptation of the thirty-year-old cult novel, written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. At the moment, it seems like it's either being reviewed, analyzed, raved about, or involved in hilarious misunderstandings instigated by Evangelicals Christians. 

Book Review: Good Omens

Book Review: Good Omens

What happens next includes prophecies by a slightly unhinged, seventeen-century witch, self-proclaimed witch hunters, the Four Horsemen (on motorcycles), Angels being bureaucratic assholes, and demons who overreact when you've accidentally misplaced the Antichrist. There are also Satanic nuns, patriotic Americans, and Hellhounds. Oh, and the Antichrist is an eleven-year-old boy.

Wyrd Sisters begins with the murder of King Varence I by his cousin Duke Felmet, a crime in large planned and orchestrated by the Duke's ambitious wife.

My 2018 in books: Last day of the year

At the beginning of 2018, I decided to, once again, sign up for the Goodreads reading challenge. After successfully completing my 2017 goal of reading thirty books I challenged myself to read thirty-six books during 2018. On September 29th, I officially completed the challenge, and I'm ending 2018 with fifty-three books read.

The Discworld Reviews: Sourcery

There was an eighth son of an eighth son. He was, quite naturally, a wizard. And there it should have ended. However (for reasons we'd better not go into), he had seven sons. And then he had an eighth son ... a wizard squared ... a source of magic ... a Sourcerer. Sourcery sees the return of Rincewind and the Luggage as the Discworld faces its greatest - and funniest - challenge yet.

My 2018 in Books: Six-Month Update

My 2018 in Books: Six-month update

As you might (or might not) know, I signed up for the Goodreads reading challenge at the beginning of the year, pledging to read thirty-six books. You can read more about that in THIS post. We’re now in June, at the six-month mark, and I’ve so far read twenty-two books. Considering I’ve also been a full-time student and thus have read thousands of pages of exciting titles like Empires in world history: power and the politics of difference, or Agriculture in world history, I feel quite happy. Those twenty-two books are ones I’ve read after finishing all that required reading. Thank god for audio books.
