Not only have I utterly failed in my easily-attainable goal to watch one movie a month (just one!) to post here, I completely neglected to post ANYTHING for the month of May. Not cool, man. My excuse is that I've just been so caught up in watching television series. I got through the Scooby Doo episode of Supernatural, I've started the guilty pleasure that is Pretty Little Liars, I've been getting caught up on the most recent Netflix-able season of Legends of Tomorrow, I'm two episodes deep into S5 of Black Mirror. It doesn't end there either: the final season of Jessica Jones starts in just a couple days, S4 of Veronica Mars is just around the corner and I haven't even gotten to start in on Good Omens yet, much to my chagrin. Golden age of television indeed (give or take Supernatural and PLL).
So I am therefore resetting my goal to this: I want to read all of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series by the end of the summer. I've ready several of those books already, randomly, but this time I'm going chronologically. I've finished the first four - The Color of Magic, The Light Fantastic, Equal Rites and Mort. I think I can attain this goal. These are quick books for me to read - I just need to keep going to the library.
Other books I've read: Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, a wonderful collection of short stories that cannot be kept to one genre, instead incorporating horror, comedy, feminism and fantasy; and The Troop by Nick Cutter, a body horror/zombie-ish/Lord of the Flies mash-up that's good enough to have a Stephen King blurb on the front cover.
