    SHAZAM [My name is SPOILER]

    no i agree I just wish they did more to demonstrate that everyone had the same powers. you only see one of them fly (freddie) you only see one of them really display super strength (eugene) and only one of them display speed (darla) i just wish they did a better job of showing they all had the same powers.

    SHAZAM [My name is SPOILER]

    loved it. Very fun movie that didn't take itself too seriously, but at the same time had some good emotional punches to it (i actually got teary eyed when he finally met his mom) my only gripe is that when the kids all got powers, they really made it seem like they all only got 1 power (speed, strength, flight, etc..) rather than they all got the same powers as shazam, but each one of them got one attribute slightly stronger (one was slightly faster, one better flier, one slightly stronger, etc..)

    Crown of Stars series - does it get any better?

    I tried! I picked up the series because it was one of wert's recommendations of top fantasy series from his gratuitous list. its just such a slog

    Crown of Stars series - does it get any better?

    Thanks for the info. I tried to read a chapter last night, (Rosvitas first POV chapter) and I couldn't get past 2 or 3 pages. I think I'm going to have to retire this series
  5. So I started book one of the Crown of Stars series, King's Dragon, based off of recommendations of people whose opinion I value, but my god is this book a slog. I'm almost at the halfway mark and I'm basically forcing myself to read this as its just so goddamn boring. slight spoilers all the religious talk and lack of plot is just making me not enjoy this book at all. However people say this series is great. I'm not seeing it and just need to know it gets better so i can convince myself to slog through, otherwise I think i'm just going to give up (but I'm not a fan of giving up on books) is there a light at the end of the tunnel?

    How often have you cracked your phone?

    for smart phones, i've had my screen cracked twice, both times by my wife in her drunken state knocking it out of my hand. One time I dropped my brand new Note 4 when it first came out 4 feet from my shirt pocket while i was bent over onto the floor, the screen didn't crack, but the lcd broke :(. that one hurt
  7. The sex doll Dennis insulting everyone had me on the floor. "He said shut up bird". "I heard that too!) Dennis really does ruin them all. Loved it

    The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang

    Wert, I just wanted to let you know that I love reading your blog and your posts and so far have enjoyed that vast majority of books that you have rated 4 stars or more on your reviews. If you like it from my experience I usually like it as well so I'm eager to check this out after I catch up on my backlog (which happen to be books I just bought last week from your completed fantasy book list you posted a few weeks ago on your blog) Thanks for all of your amazing reviews
