The Addams Family

This morning, I went to see the animated movie The Addams Family. It was fun! I just love these characters.

My favourite part was Wednesday making a friend. I also want to pet the lion. XD
Nightrunner - Seregil and Alec

The Copper Promise by Jen Williams

The Copper Promise by Jen Williams (The Ninth Rain, which I talked about here) was excellent. A group of adventurers go to explore a forbidden Citadel.

Jen Williams writes very inventive fantasy. The Copper Promise follows a more traditional plot than The Ninth Rain, so it's easier to get into. But if you want the full weight of her imagination, go for The Ninth Rain.

There's a gay major character. I also like the dragon ladies.
Dollhouse - Echo and Whiskey

Hanna

I've watched the Hanna TV series on Amazon. I haven't seen the movie, but the series is a reboot, not a sequel, so it wasn't an issue.

The plot was great. It made me think of a Black Widow origin story.

I ship Hanna/Sophie. Pity it didn't happen.
Inception - Eames Arthur and Girl!Eames

Jumanji 3

This morning, I went to see Jumanji 3. It was fun, but a bit repetitive compared with the previous movie. There were new characters and new levels, but it wasn't a big change of concept like between the first and the second movies.

Karen Gillan was awesome as usual. <3
The Secret Circle - Diana Adam Cassie

Crier's War by Nina Varela + Hoshiai no Sora S1E08

Crier's War by Nina Varela was excellent. Automae rule over humans. Ayla, a member of the Resistance, becomes the handmaiden to Lady Crier.

Nina Varela wrote some of the best fanfics I've ever read (I don't have any links because she took them down). I'm so happy that her book got a big publisher (Harper) and a lot of buzz. All well-deserved!

It has major f/f. It's so sweet that her dedication is to queer readers. <3

----------

Hoshiai no Sora is the new Yuri on Ice! \o/ Yuri on Ice was the first sports anime with canon m/m. Hoshiai no Sora is the first sports anime (as far as I can tell) with a canon non-binary character. And there were also mentions of a trans man.
Kings - Jack and David

The Man in the High Castle + Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

The Man in the High Castle was amazing! It's an Amazon show, based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, about the United States losing the war and being occupied by the Nazis and the Japanese.

It focuses on the Resistance, so there are Jewish characters (mostly in S1-3), Black characters (mostly in S4) and LGBT characters (S3 has both m/m and f/f).

It doesn't look like it at first, but it's actually SF/F. Collapse )

----------

Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell was awesome! It's the sequel to Carry On, the novel inspired by Harry/Draco.

While Carry On was close to fanfic territory, Wayward Son is more of an original story, as it takes place after Hogwarts Watford.

It was great getting more Simon/Baz content and I'm looking forward to the next book. <3
Mirage of Blaze - Naoe and Takaya

Alta Mar Season 2

Alta Mar, Netflix's Spanish historical murder mystery, is back! I liked this season more than S1. They added some paranormal, which was right up my alley.

They also added a little f/f. Lovely! <3

It's always a pleasure to see Ivana Baquero in action.
X-Men - Xavier and Magneto

Agents of SHIELD Season 6 + The Infinite Noise by Lauren Shippen

Agents of SHIELD Season 6 was really great! After how awesome S5 was, I didn't think they could do better, but they at least managed to do just as well.

Collapse )

----------

The Infinite Noise by Lauren Shippen was excellent. Caleb starts going to therapy and finds out he's an empath (as in, the superpower).

You guys know I love stories about telepathy, and empathy is close enough to it.

I haven't read many books about mental health, but this is probably the best one.

There is major m/m, with a nice, long slow-burn. ♥
Nobuta wo Produce - Shuji to Akira

Steel Crow Saga by Paul Krueger

Steel Crow Saga by Paul Krueger was awesome! ^__^ Xiulan and Lee are looking for Prince Jimuro. Tala is in charge of protecting him.

This book is about shadepacting: sharing your soul with an animal for fighting purposes, among other things. His Dark Materials meets Pokemon. I really liked the bond between humans and their shades.

There is major f/f, minor m/m and a trans male character. The worldbuilding is based on Asian cultures, mainly Japan, China, Korea and the Philippines.

I thought this was the beginning of a series, so I'm a little disappointed to find out this is a standalone novel. However, this is a rare occurrence in fantasy, so I'm sure it will appeal to some of you.
