What I'm Loving Now

January has been so cold and snowy. In the last three weeks I've become a hermit. And I'm ok with that. The Fall was super busy and I have sewing, TV shows, and books to catch up on. Plus, the weather outside isn't too friendly.

Winter

I had mentioned in my Reading Challenge post that I had started the latest Lunar Chronicles book, Winter, just before the new year. It was a long audio book at 23 hours. Long for me anyways. Typically the audio books I listen to range from 6-12 hours depending on the book. So 23 hours took me a bit to get through.

Once I got into the story I found myself listening constantly and flew through the last half. I won't give any spoilers but it was a good book. It wasn't my favourite book in The Lunar Chronicles series, but it was an entertaining book that wrapped things up nicely. I found myself rooting for certain characters and relationships, and I got a little teary eyed a few times too. I thoroughly enjoyed the 'Snow White' aspects throughout the book as well, since Winter is based on that fairy tale (like all the books in The Lunar Chronicle series).

The synopsis from Goodreads:

"Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana."


Supernatural

I decided to play catch up with Supernatural again. I always find myself binge watching this show and in the middle of cold Winter seemed like a perfect time. I started season 9 a couple of weeks ago and I only have a few episodes left. No matter how long this show goes on, the Winchesters, Crowley, and Castiel entertain the hell out of me. I think I might be tempted to head right into season 10 with how season 9 is playing out.

Also, look at my FBI Winchester Pop! Vinyl figures I got for Christmas! I just love how accurate they are, even the stance on both of them!


What have you been into lately?

  1. I read Winter yesterday. I enjoyed it and agree that it wasn't my favorite either. I loved Fairest and wish we got to see a little more of old school Levana in this book. I heard they might be a movie and I'm really excited about that!!! Which is your fav?

    1. It's hard to pick a favourite... I really like Scarlet's character but the first book, Cinder, completely sold me on this series.
