I have no idea why I didn’t see this when it was in theaters. I’m kicking myself now because was so visually stunning. It would have been beautiful on the big screen.
Moana was such a fun movie with a wonderful, brave and kind heroine. LOVED it!

“Jason Weiser tells stories from myths, legends, and folklore that have shaped cultures throughout history. Some, like the stories of Aladdin, King Arthur, and Hercules are stories you think you know, but with surprising origins. Others are stories you might not have heard, but really should. All the stories are sourced from world folklore, but retold for modern ears. These are stories of wizards, knights, Vikings, dragons, princesses, and kings from the time when the world beyond the map was a dangerous and wonderful place.”
~ Kevin was listening to this and I joined in – it’s a lot of fun and has some surprising revelations for stories that you thought you knew – but don’t – like the truth behind the Disney takes on Alladin, Mulan and more…
Each episode also ends with an introduction to a mythological creature
Off Beat YA discussion post
My blogger buddy, Roberta, reviews mostly indie/small press YA and wrote an interesting discussion post wondering how a book gets hyped and how to get hype going for smaller. lesser known titles:
“1.. how do certain books get hype while other (often better) ones don’t? and
2. how do certain bloggers get a respectable – if not massive – follower count, and thus can work at getting books hyped?”
Go forth and chime in with your thoughts and words of wisdom
A momma Carolina Wren decided to use my door wreath to set up her little nest and now we have babies!
Kind of ugly but cute, spikey haired, punk rock, alien babies lol I don’t know if the other two hatched yet and I don’t want to disturb mom.
The Demon Prince (Ars Numina #2) by Ann Aguirre is out! ~ Goodreads
I beta read this book and I don’t really feel comfortable writing reviews for books when I do that but I do love this series and wanted to give a shout out!
The hero, a Prince, is SUPER sweet & strong, struggling with a chronic illness with and has a brother bent on killing him and the heroine is a badass Dr. who fights for her man. Great world building and steamy (I do mean STEAMY – threesome) sex.
And The leopard King (Ars Numina #1) (which I also beta read and loved) was nominated for 2 Romance Writers of America RITA awards: Paranormal Worldbuilding & Best Paranormal. Congrats to Ann!!!!!
