Weekly Reads (03/24/17)
So it's officially Spring and I'm wearing more clothing now than I did in January and February. Not only do I think the weather is confused, but it's confusing me as well. The Farm has been very calm and serene this week and I hope this is the beginning of a new trend. We have been planning some backyard projects and looking at a few things we want to do around the house this Spring and Summer as long as the weather cooperates. Booker T and Cassius are doing great except I wish someone would tell them they don't need to wake Mom up in the middle of the night to go outside and see if the raccoon that visited a few weeks ago has returned.
We watched a few movies this past week which I think were pretty good or at least entertaining, First we streamed "Passengers." I don't think it got very good reviews but I have to be honest, I really liked it. Mr. Barb didn't and I can see his point. It's advertised as a space thriller (I think) and it really was 75% romance/love story. If you like action, it's probably not the movie for you. I liked the characters and the story though. Then we watched "Brimstone" which I believe is a straight to streaming movie. It has some fairly big names (Kit Harrington, Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce - and oh, did I mention Kit Harrington). It's a suspenseful western with a really creepy Reverend (Pearce) and is told in 4 chapters. Let me just tell you it confirms my belief that the scariest people in horror/thriller movies are people themselves and not monsters.
It's also looking to be a decent reading month. I'm trying to catch up on my Goodreads challenge and at least making progress. I've really enjoyed the last few books/graphic novels I've read so I hope the trend continues. Here's what's up on this weeks stack and I think I may be able to get them done before March is finished.
I hope you all have lots of fun stuff planned this weekend/week ahead and thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from my regular visits and enjoy new people stopping by and commenting as well.
