One of the good things to come out of the pandemic - virtual book events. Looking forward to digging into this one after hearing the author give a talk tonight.

"We've stood by you and we'll be damned if you throw that loyalty aside just because it's inconvenient to your pride."

Nessa's words and determined loyalty hit home today. Everyone needs a Nessa in their corner to smack them in the head, occasionally.

Semi-related, I will never forget the audible "whoa" that rippled through the movie theater at that scene. What a great visual effect.

Boyfriend Material | Alexis Hall

This book is a delight. I should note that the narrator is pretty clearly depressed (even if he doesn't define it as such), so the events in the novel are viewed through that lens and he tolerates things he probably shouldn't have to. Even still, the book is funny and sweet and the ending left me smiling.

I grabbed the sample of this last night after hearing some good reviews. I'm torn - the sample was excellent, but a little slow. I keep thinking about it though - the story I saw in the sample was very compelling. Maybe one to request from the library?

I've never been a fan of the prequels, but since I've been (finally) watching The Clone Wars during lockdown, a friend recommended I give the novelizations a try. I'm attempting to be open-minded about it. 😂 #starwars

Outlander | Diana Gabaldon

Mehso-so

I respect that the story doesn't shy away from some of the more brutal aspects of the time period while simultaneously not being super graphic about it. The heroine does stupid things, but recognizes it eventually, admitting that she's been treating her inadvertent time travel like a play or costume drama and not considering the very real consequences of her actions, so I don't hate her for doing stupid things. Probably won't continue the series.
