Hi there! November is creeping to an end and Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK. How is that possible? I have lots of family coming over to celebrate and eat so next week should prove to be pretty busy. I hope to squeeze in some good reading time regardless.
This last week was a pretty good one. I re-watched Labyrinth (hadn’t seen it in years) and yeah…just as amazing as I remembered. I actually watched it twice last week and I had to Google search Jareth and all the different theories/analysis on his character.
Have you seen it? I think Jareth is such a perfect YA villain and watching it as an adult I think I enjoyed him even more. Though, it is a tad creepy with the age difference-but he is immortal. I’ve also listened to two songs from the movie, Within You and As the World Falls Down about a thousand times each. There’s a graphic novel series called, Return to the Labyrinth. The ratings seemed meh but I am pretty curious. Has anyone read them?
Beyond my David Bowie/Labyrinth obsession I also did some reading. I read The Girl Who Fell by Shannon M. Parker and wow was this book suspenseful. It was really hard to read in spots because of the subject matter but very well done. I found it hard to stop reading after the mid-way point and would recommend this contemporary/issues book to all those that enjoy creepy, disturbing, suspenseful reads.
I also read a good bit of Their Fractured Light and AHHHH it is really good. I’m loving the characters and can’t wait to own the hardcover. I think at some point the whole Starbound series needs to be reread one after another.
