Weekly Reads (03/19/18) - Exciting News

HEY HEY HEY
GOODBYE!


Nope guys, I'm not leaving.  But the neighbors are gone!!!  I waited a while to make the announcemet because I wanted to be sure but yep, they're gone and The Farm is celebrating.  We also had the court hearing on the protection order Tuesday, and although she failed to show up, the Magistrate found her to be the aggressor, extended the order for a year, and fined her court costs!  I can't explain how much more relaxed things have felt around the house the past few days.  Even the dogs can feel it.

So we've been doing some serious TV watching since the weather has been cold, snowy and blowy.  Although nothing like up north and I'm sending good vibes to all of you up that way.  "This Is Us" is almost over and is STILL killing me.  Such torture.  "The Walking Dead" started up again and I'll be honest, I'm becoming less and less interested in it.  It has had a great run, but I think it might be time to look toward the end.  We streamed "Thor: Ragnarok" and it was so so good.  The action, the effects, the laughs.  Never imagined I could laugh so much at a Marvel movie.  We also watched a zombie film called "Last Ones Out" on Shudder.  My husband has been looking for this movie forever and it was made in 2015.  Right now it's a Shudder exclusive but I HIGHLY recommend you getting your hands on it if you can.  Quite enjoyable.

So I'm almost done with "Snowblind" and it was just the horror read I was looking for.  The atmosphere is great and some crazy things have been happening.  After that I'll probably start "Dark Glitter" and "Dreadful Young Ladies."  Although I also grabbed Issue 6 of Sabrina on Hoopla and can see myself getting sucked into it as well this week.


So what are you up to this week?  Any good book or movie recommedations?

  1. I am so glad that the stress over the neighbor is finally over. Such a relief! I don't get quite as excited about TWD as I used to but I will most likely keep watching it for as long as it is on the air.

    1. I'm sort of wishing they would cancel it and then I'd have the best excuse to not watch it anymore.

  2. So happy for you that the neighbor is gone and everything seemed to work out. I agree that Thor Ragnorak was amazing. I laughed a lot too. Glad you are enjoying your books. Have a great weekend.

  4. I feel a movie binge coming on. Been watching shows and I want something with a beginning and end in around 2 hours. LOL Yippee about the neighbors. That was getting scary!

    1. Yay for movie binges. We watched a new movie called Night World on Netflix this weekend - it wasn't too bad.

  6. Oh Barb that is wonderful news! I hope you get some nice peace and quiet now after all the hassle!

    I watched season three of The Walking Dead and found it a bit slow in places. I've heard that the current seasons are more like gang warfare with the odd zombie thrown in and that puts me off going any further, plus all but two of my favourites seem to be dead now which is disappointing. Not sure I'll ever go back to it.

    1. Yes, fewer and fewer zombies. I keep holding on because of Carol and Daryl. Carol has such a way with kids that I can't resist watching to see what she does next!!!!

  7. Congrats on the good news! I can only imagine how relieved you must feel right now. I'm curious about Dreadful Young Ladies, I've been hearing a lot of buzz about the author.

  10. Woohooo! Glad to hear that things are settling down and all the drama is over. I hear you on TWD. We haven't even started the new season yet. I'm just "meh" over it at this point. I keep hoping that Rick dies but he just always ALWAYS seems to weasel his way out of the most impossible situations. Ugh.

    1. Haha. Yes, Rick dying would shake things up and I wouldn't be totally opposed to it!

    1. Yes, the main thing is I'm not so worried about the dogs now when we are at work. Even though they are inside, I was still worrying myself sick.
