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 […]

January Wrap Up

January Wrap Up

2018 is off to a roaring start, n’est pas, mes chers?  I’ve not been subtle about how much 2017 stunk for me, so I’m absolutely thrilled with the way January has unwound so far.  I hope everyone else has had a good start, too! I ended up with quite a good haul this month – after a slow December on NetGalley, I ended up being granted 5 books.  I timed my requests so that there’s nothing immediate, so reading them shouldn’t be a challenge (The Phantom Tree releases in August!). I believe there’s a lot of little ones in this set… Blood Will […]

The Waste Lands by Stephen King

The Waste Lands by Stephen King

Guys, I love this book. The Waste Lands is where The Dark Tower series is REALLY starting to get good.  First and foremost (small spoiler, but honestly, this book is 26 years old) we get Jake back!  Jake and Eddie are my favorite characters in this series, so I love his journey back to Roland’s world.  Second, we get to see the city of Lud, which I think it the first real example of how Roland’s world has “moved on”.  Third?  BLAINE THE MONO. Blaine is my favorite villain in this series.  Probably on my top ten ever.  He is such […]
