  1. Huh, lots to comment on here.
    Dune. Fantastic. Glad to see you are going to be reading it. Whatever you think of it, I’ll be extremely interested in your review.

    How is there a second IT movie? Considering that King wrapped things up, I don’t see how a sequel can exist. Unless, some hack writers are telling their own story and just put the trappings of IT over it. Honestly, that is what I’d be afraid of. Not that I’m ever going to watch it, as me and scary movies are a complete no-no. Scary images get in my brain and make me jumpy for weeks.

    And a final Rambo movie? Geez, it’s almost as bad as the Rocky franchise. Actors really need to learn when to let the past go and let it stay in the past.

    1. Oh man, I’m just as intrigued to find out how amazing it actually is.

      Ah it’s cause the book is split in two where the first half covers the story with the group of protagonists are kids, and then the other half is the same cast as adults. Now, if they do a chapter 3, now I’d think that it was an attempt to mill a franchise.

      Hahahah Stallone has been doing this lately, with his return in the Rocky spin-off Creed. I am curious to see if this won’t be an unnecessary entry. Between reboots and this kind of sequels, I think I’d rather see a sequel and see if nostalgia will play to its advantage. 😂

  2. I really enjoyed the first season of Titans, Dick Grayson has always been my favourite Robin so I love seeing him in a live action capacity. I’m curious to see what direction the new season follows, and I’m especially curious to see the influence Bruce and Slade Wilson have on the team. I’m also slightly hoping we get a Barbara Gordon cameo cause she’s my other fave haha.

    I am also really excited to read Abercrombie’s new book. It looks deadly and delicious 😂

    1. Same here. It’s a lot darker than the comics but it’s interesting nonetheless! I am also curious to see what they do with all the characters they can integrate in this universe. I just know it’s super fun for what it is and season 2 will be its moment to push things further, now that we know the characters!
      I do hope you get to read and enjoy it! It’ll be my first Abercrombie myself! 😁


  3. Good luck with all your university stuff! I’m looking forward to write more stories and to see where they’ll go. Not really any particular books or series I’m looking forward to. Just enjoying whatever I can find

  4. I’m hoping to read The Bone Ships too, Lashaan. Hope we both love it! And thanks for sharing The Goldfinch trailer, I hadn’t seen it before. I have the book but haven’t read it yet, but you’ve reminded me I need to😁 Hope you have a fantastic month!

    1. I do hope you enjoy The Bone Ships, Tammy! I’ll be curious to see what you’ll think of it. Hahah I have been meaning to that authors book for a while and after that trailer, my curiosity saw new heights! 😂 Have a wonderful month of September too! 😁


  5. OMG that cover for Harleen is THE BOMB Lashaan! I so love it! And Rambo??? WTH??? isn’t he too old for that? I recall watching the first Rambo whan I was 12 or 13 so around 36 years ago!!!!!! Adrieeeeeeene! And as for time flying by wait till you get older it will be worse!

    1. Yes! Tell me about it. And I’m convinced the artwork in it is PHENOMENAL! I can’t wait to share it with everyone when I get around to reviewing it! And yeees hahahah it was a surprise that they even planned on making a sequel! As for the Adrian comment hahahahah That’s a Rocky reference, not Rambo! 😂 Oh man… I’m not excited to get old! 😂


  6. I’m actually looking forward to that last Rambo movie 😉 Stallone has returned to being much more conscious actor/director over the years (first Rambo and Rocky were really decent movies) and that trailer looks like he wants to come full circle. That Harleen cover looks great! I wasn’t a fan of White Knight, so will wait for your review of that new Murphy comic 😉 Good luck at the uni!

    1. I’m also curious since he was pretty decent in Creed. I just hope that this latest entry in the Rambo franchise is an attempt to milk it with his reputation and nostalgia around the movie. I hope the story will be as good as the artwork for Harleen though. Ahhh yes, I remember you saying that about White Knight. I do hope it’ll be an original story! Thanks for the support, Ola! 😁

    1. Tell me about it. Although it is exciting that we’ve reached 2020 and that there’s plenty of exciting things to come going forward, it’s still scary how fast it has arrived!

      Yep. 10 years. The release of the Netflix TV series might have helped to get it released too. Will be reviewing the third volume soon enough. 😀

  7. Dune??!! I keep getting recs from folks to read that too, but I’ve been putting it off because I think I might not like it…dunno why I think that. I’ll def be on the lookout for your review.

  8. Look forward to hearing your thoughts on Dune Lashaan, my only exposure is through the 1980s movie and I will definitely be checking out the new one (from master director Denis Villeneuve no less!!!). The book, I’ve heard takes some commitment.

    Still got to read Batman: The White Knight but it’s on the pile! Growing up in the 80s/90s as a fan of Stallone and Schwarzenegger, it’ll be little surprise to you that I’m a HUGE Rambo fan and CANNOT wait for Last Blood. I can definitely recommend you at least seeing the first Rambo film – ‘First Blood’ it remains a top tier favourite of mine (I enjoy 2 and 3 but bear in mind they’re a bit jingoistic and musclebound but good fun and the fourth film is…pretty violent, a bit controversial and not for the timid).

    1. Oh yes, I’m pushing this super high on priority just for Villeneuve’s upcoming movie too. Something tells me we aren’t too far away from hearing more about it soon.

      Sounds like you might end up binging Murphy’s stories soon gahahh Ahhh I was a fan as a kid too of their movies (of most members of the Expendables in fact) but later entries in all their franchises have often been questionable in quality… I do hope this next Rambo movie will be nostalgic and well-done though!

  9. I wish you a wonderful month, Lashaan! 😄 It’s so cool that you’re going to read Dune! I’d love to read it too 😍 I’m personally very positive and motivated this month, I can’t wait to establish a new routine and start to do a lot of new stuff ☺️

  10. Yeeeeeeeeessssssssss, DUNE! I hope you love it! 😯😯😯😯😯😯 I’m so excited for you!

    So many interesting things on TV. I wish I had Hulu. I wonder if they still do a 30 day free trial. I haven’t seen one advertised in forever. Rotten Tomatoes has an entertainment channel? Where have I been? 📺

    I was about halfway finished with The Goldfinch about three years ago, maybe four, and I got swamped with ARCs and never got the chance to finish it, and I keep forgetting to pick it back up. I need to finish it soon so I can watch the movie. I was loving the book. In fact I don’t have to reread anything because it was so good it has stuck in my memory! 🙌🙌🙌I

    Have a great school year! My son is finally in his last semester of undergrad. He’s looking at different Masters programs now. I know I saw what your field of study was somewhere, but it slips my mind right now. 🎓

    1. I’m sooooo excited to read Dune for the first same time! 😍😍😍

      I have no idea if that exists but you’ll have to be careful nowadays. There’s a hundred new streaming services coming out with exclusive content and you have to pick the ones that interests you the most! 😂 And yes, Rotten Tomatoes is everywhere now since their aggregate number for movies is such a huge subject every time a movie comes out.

      You’re definitely making me want to pick up The Goldfinch now! I really need to find a way to read it before I forget it. 😂

      Ohhh that’s sweet! Sounds like he’s enjoying his field and it’s ALWAYS great to hear about kids pursuing postgrad studies! I’ve done my Bachelors and Masters in criminology. And now doing my 2nd year of my PhD in criminology! 😁
