  2. So excited for the return of Wigs: The Anthology Series. Also count me as somebody too young to remember when all this happened, so I'm definitely fuzzy on the less prominent personalities. The episode was definitely all over the place, but a lot had to get established. While Monica was the lynchpin that launched the whole thing into the stratosphere, there were a lot of other elements at play. I'm happy for her that she gets to tell her story in this way. She seems really cool and completely accepting of this part of her life. If I am ever even a fraction of at peace with myself and my c
  3. Just finished: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller, a retelling of the Iliad from Patroclus's perspective. I've never read the Iliad (and my knowledge of Greek mythology in general is fairly basic), but I enjoyed it well enough.

I was pleasantly surprised with the ways they were able to keep using the format switch to their advantage, and am definitely looking forward to see what else they can do with that.
  7. Just finished: The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, which is a pretty huge departure from what I normally go for. I don't read a lot of fantasy, and usually find high-fantasy doorstoppers like this one way too intimidating (I read it on my Kindle, but I believe the print version is over 1,000 pages). However, I really found myself enjoying it. I loved the worldbuilding, especially the "interludes" that visited random, unrelated characters in other parts of Roshar to give the reader a better idea of all the different cultures that made up this civilization. Again, I say this as somebody who d
