But maybe there isn’t with underwhelming grosses of these supposed blockbusters, showing signs…

So while the trailer didn’t excite me, this film is still one of my most anticipated for the year. It’s been a long time coming. One thing in its favor is that I came in with expectations low, so the film itself had a lot of opportunity to exceed them. I would say that it did. And I’ll tell you now.

Mockingjay Part 2 Review

And now it’s time to say goodbye to Kat and company. Granted, the last book wasn’t my favorite by any means, but that doesn’t mean the film franchise can’t do its best to go out with a bang. To be honest, the hype has seemed a little mild building up to part two of this conclusion. It’s like the upcoming Star Wars film has booked every seat on the year-end…

Poll!! What should I read next?!

One plus to being a bit behind on my reading is what when it’s time to amp up again, I’m knee deep in good stuff.  I just finished A Court of Thorns and LOVED it (review is coming up)! It was definitely book hangover worthy, but I’ve got quite the arsenal to ease the blow between new releases and ARCs.  Bear with me here: The Geomancer ARC (just finished it–AWESOME!)…
