The recent release of the Umbrella Academy on Netflix left me with a big obsession for the series. And imagine my surprise to know that The Order (a Netflix Original that was released after The Umbrella Academy) was renewed for a second season while The Umbrella Academy’s Netflix fate is still up in the air.Continue reading “Supers and Heroes”

Chapter 15 At the masquerade ball
Audiobooks are my current obsession.
I have to admit with work, chores and exercise getting in the way of my reading time, it just seems inevitable that I’ll try it out. After all, libraries are now loaning audiobooks. And with the help of the Overdrive app, it’s pretty easy to download the audiobooks and return it before or once the loan period ends.
What can I say about audiobooks that I haven’t covered in an earlier article?
It’s convenient. I don’t need to think about saving actual space in my cramped room. I can listen to my favorite author’s stories (and in the case of some authors, their narration) while on the go which saves on time. Time I spend laying down or sitting down while turning the page of a physical book can be turned into time I can use to clean up, work, jog and travel while listening to a story.
Now I know that not a lot of people like audiobooks and don’t consider it reading. But personally, audiobooks have good and professional narrators whose interpretation of character nuances and voices actually make things more interesting in my opinion. In some cases, the narrators publishers get are also actors you see on tv or the movies, which makes it even more fun in my opinion.
Honestly, 21st century libraries are the best. They managed to find a way to lend audiobooks and ebooks. Unfortunately, the my local library doesn’t have enough audiobook titles to fill my obsession.
Hence, why I have turned to audiobook retailers. So if you are an audiobook enthusiast, here are some retailers I would recommend. They are by no means perfect but I’ve tried their services and each have their good points!Continue reading “Audiobook Retailers”
Chapter 14 To be supported
Why are Disney/Pixar movies so popular? At first glance, these movies are geared for kids and yet these movies earn a lot of money?
A lot of you would say that of course it’s because the parents would be forced to buy tickets not just for the kids but also for themselves. You can’t leave kids alone in the cinema.
But notice the trend of the past decades. If you take a look at the audience, it’s not just kids and parents watching. You see a lot of grown ups on the seats too. And I’m not just talking about teenagers. I’m talking about people in their twenties or thirties watching with friends (of the same age)!
Here are three novels published on the Year 2018 that I’ve recently been obsessed about.
So for like-minded individuals looking for your next obsessions. Here are 3 standalone novels you should really take a look at! (And yes, they do not require sequels). The endings are satisfying!!!!
Chapter 13 My husband, Erich’s, mystery
One misconception of series containing 6 books or more is that the characters remain at status quo. Or that the protagonists do not experience character development. Why else, they might think, would an author choose to write about the same characters so many times.
