Book Vs. Movie – The Dark Tower (SPOILERS!)

Book Vs. Movie – The Dark Tower (SPOILERS!)

It is a well-known fact that it’s extraordinarily difficult to watch a film adaptation of a story you love, especially when it’s as intricate as a high fantasy.  When I heard that a movie adaptation was being made of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, I was so excited.  Beyond excited – I was elated. Of course, the problem was – the more details that were released about the story, the less inclined I was to see it.  These things piled up and up until the very mention of The Dark Tower made me cringe.  Ultimate, I didn’t see it in theaters.  In […]

Bookish Worlds I’d Never Want to Live In

Bookish Worlds I’d Never Want to Live In

If you’re like me and you read a lot of fantasy novels, then you know how cruel the world can be.  Most contemporary novels are fluffy or thrillers, but ultimately they are our world and we already live in it, like it or not.  Science fiction and fantasy?  Those are dark places, more often than not.  And while a lot of us would love to go to Hogwarts, I’m sure there are places we can all agree we’d rather not go to. Midworld The Gunslinger, The Drawing of the Three, The Waste Lands, Wizard and Glass, The Wind Through the […]

Books I Could Re-read Forever

Books I Could Re-read Forever

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to my Crossing booklist! In The Queen of the Tearling, people were allowed to take a maximum of ten books with them to the new world.  Books, while culturally important and sentimental, are heavy and technically unnecessary unless they contained medical information… so each passenger was allowed a maximum of ten.  These are fiction, or books that were close to peoples’ hearts.  Not a desert island booklist – these books did not need to have any practical value. You’ll be delighted to hear that in Queen of the Tearling, all 7 Harry Potter books made the Crossing.  Mine only has […]

November Wrap Up

November Wrap Up

Well this is going to be a short post. Remember last month when I got a gazillion books and everything was busy and I read all the posts and was awesome?  This month is the exact opposites.  My beautiful people, I have been DYING to finish La Belle Sauvage.  To catch up on NCIS or Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.  None of these things are happening. On the bright side, I am making a little bit of pocket change working overtime.  So there’s that?  My brother-in-law told me a couple weeks ago, “You always find the silver lining, huh?” and I told him, […]

The Gunslinger by Stephen King

The Gunslinger by Stephen King

“The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed.” For a lifetime, Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger, has been following his precious quarry.  His mission is to reach the Dark Tower, and the man and black can give him information to aid him on his quest.  But he is no easy man to catch, for the man appears constantly vigorous while Roland pursues him across a desert, low on water and sustenance. The gunslinger does not move without causing destruction and despair in his wake.  Wherever he goes, death follows.  When he befriends a young boy at […]
