I finally faced the consequences of watching a zombie movie, though it was weeks later: zombie nightmare, urgh. There are reasons why I don't normally watch zombie movies.

Oh, and I apparently didn't post about that here. So: I watched World War Z, since it was available on Netflix livestreaming, and it had been described to me as a zombie movie for people who don't like zombie movies. more about the movie AND the book World War Z back here )

I saw Mockingjay, Part I a few weeks ago as well. only tiny spoilers for the movie )

Another book? Oh why not. Seanan McGuire has a series with half-fae half-human all detective Tobey Daye, starting with Rosemary and Rue. Very enjoyable, and I have the second book on hold at my library.

And hey, another movie too. (Wow, it's been awhile since I posted.) Into the Woods was another entertaining movie that was bound to annoy fans of the original source material. Which I would now like to see, by the way. Having read a summary of the musical, it sounds much better than that movie was. Even though Sondheim's musicality is apparently not my thing, I like the ideas behind his musical.

One last book! Terry Pratchett's Raising Steam, which I ended up skimming, because the character Moist Von Lipwig is not one I find particularly endearing. I like certain elements of Pratchett's Discworld series more than others, and am therefore not a diehard fan of all his books. Honestly, his best are probably with Tiffany Aching. Or Death--I like Death quite a bit.

Well, that's a lot of blather. Hope your new year is starting well! I think I'll celebrate my last official day off (I still have the weekend, but that's normal for me) by doing the mundane task of highlighting my hair.
