A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro: Quite enjoyable.
Judgment of Paris by George M Taber: Guys, I think this book might be pretty sexist.
The Attention Merchants: The Epic Scramble to Get Inside Our Heads by Tim Wu: Has the potential to be really interesting.
Independence Day Resurgence, starring Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum
My absolute favorite line: "They're drilling to our molten core!!!"
Bottle Shock, starring Alan Rickman, Chris Pine, and Bill Pullman
I heard about this movie while scanning the Goodreads reviews for Judgment of Paris; they're basically about the same thing, though one isn't based on the other. Alan Rickman gets all the lines, which is as it should be; but do you know what my faaaaaaavorite thing about this movie was? How the one female character's single purpose is to sleep with the guys as a reward for making good wine. And I thought Judgment of Paris was sexist! At least that book didn't replace an actual woman (Spurrier's RL business partner, Patricia Gallagher) with a made-up male character, because hey, we already have two females who talk in this film, let's not confuse people. Great job as usual, Hollywood.
This week in heidenkindom:
Don't forget my cocktail book, The Introvert's Guide to Drinking Alone, comes out TOMORROW! Yeah!! I'm, like super pumped and simultaneously a bit nervous.
If you've missed any of the excerpts I've been linking to on Twitter and Facebook, you can see them all here.
I'm also planning to publish a paperback version, but I have some work to do reformatting for print before I get there.
Have an excellent week, everyone!
