It has been a particularly poor three months for visual entertainment in England and then bam, all of a sudden box sets start to become available right when autumn scheduling is being trailed. Now there is too much for me to consume and process right now. I feel like I need more eyes to take in all the lushness.
Television and DVDs( Merlin, Season Four )( The Good Wife, Season Two ) ( The Vampire Diaries, Season Two )( Nikita, Season One )
Spoilers: Renay is going to talk about 'Sherlock' below, so I won't go on about the imminent second series. Instead I offer you the Cumberbatched tumblr
to waste your life upon while we wait for it to appear.
Film( Jane Eyre (2011) ) ( Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) )( Attack the Block (2011) )
Again, Renay is going to talk about Warrior below, so I will just say OMFG I am so excited! I may have freaked Thea
out with my levels of excitement when she said she was looking forward to Warrior. Sorry?

In the spring when I started back to school I stopped reading book blogs. I wiped them out, except for a few, because book blogs are freaking dangerous. I just want everything to be in my eyes immediately
. I've slowly started to add blogs back, and of course now my GoodReads to-read shelf is getting all creaky again and threatening to consume me because I still have all those Stephen King weapons of mass destruction listed.
I also have people who shall remain nameless
encouraging me into media I totally don't have time for but really wish I did because I sure would like to mainline several seasons of a certain show so I could legitimately write wingfic, but algebra is standing in my way.
Of course, many of the blogs I followed are gone now...seriously, where are the big SF/F book blogs that update regularly? I already follow Ana and Thea to a ridiculous degree, like, don't look outside your windows, ladies, you will regret it. I have been slowly rebuilding
by demanding recs from people, but it's slow going (I am seriously following more than this, I know it). Surely SF Signal can't be the only one and I really hope it's not because if so I am going to cry, forever. OCEAN OF TEARS, followed by a Tsunami of Emotion. Please bring me a lifesaver in the form of SF blog recs.
In late July or early August I demanded recommendations from Ana and Jodie about what I should read now, right now. They chose two books, Fingersmith
by Sarah Waters and Hex Hall
be Rachel Hawkins.
I was really excited to read these but then it was all my worst fears realized: Fingersmith
was completely gone from the library shelves (no trace of it existed in the system, even! I suspect a library book sale) and Hex Hall
has been declared missing (BOOK THIEVES ARE NOT COOL THIEVES). So now these have gone on my coveting list. Although now that I look at Hex Hall
and it's sequel, wow. Jodie, are you attempting to kill me with cliffhangers...do you want me to suffer? Is this all part of some plan? *suspicious*
