This past week’s episode of Doctor Who – the third of the season – took us on a trip into the past and across the pond to Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, just a day before Rosa Park refuses to give up her seat on the bus and launches a movement. The Doctor and her companions are pulled there, of course, because there’s someone who wants to stop Rosa from doing this. Something about this moment starts something that our villain does not like and The Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz must get all the pieces in place to make it happen. There were some mixed feelings, it seems, when it came to this episode but let’s jump in and find out what I thought.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday is a novel that I’m still working my butt off to get an ARC of because I am SO insanely excited about – Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell. Just picture it now – Les Miserables in SPACE. I know, I’m sold too. Honestly, the novel sounds incredible and Jessica is a great writer and I can’t wait to get my hands on that book. AND THAT COVER!
The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly challenge post previously hosted by The Broke and Bookish and now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. You can follow along for each weekly post here. This week’s post is all about the baddies! We kind of had the freedom to do what we wanted with the topic of villains and I decided to go with my favorites. Now, that doesn’t necessarily means characters I LIKE, but those villains that are SO bad that you love to hate them. There is nothing like a fantastic villain to get you into a book!
In the second episode of Jodie Whittaker’s first season as the new Doctor in Doctor Who, the Doctor and her newest companions – Graham, Ryan and Yaz – end up stranded on a desolate planet – a planet literally called Desolation – with two others battling it out in a race across the universe for an immense amount of money. These two have to reach what is called the Ghost Monument in order to win and the Doctor and her companions tag along because, of course, the monument is none other than the TARDIS.
I just wanted to peek out really quick and let you all know that I have not disappeared – I’ve been very busy lately and I’ve been bad at keeping up with blogging and bookstagramming but I’m working hard to get back to it, for sure. I’m also working really hard on a spinoff of this blog, to tie in my fitness instagram account, and my journey with losing weight, going to the gym, getting in shape, and handling my diabetes. I thought about adding it to this blog but I want to keep the different social media aspects of my life both together and separate. I’m still working it but I’ll be posting all about it once its up!
In the meantime, I’m in the WORST reading slump and could super some help getting out of it. If you guys have any advice or any books that you know will get me outta of this slump, please let a girl know!
Miss you guys! Hope you’re all reading awesome things!
Today is the day, Whovians! It feels like it’s been so long and it has! Today we finally get back into the TARDIS – uh, sort of – and take off into a new adventure with Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, three new companions and a brand new show runner. This review is completely spoiler free so please enjoy. And if you want to talk spoilers with me, please do because I am SO excited!
