I’m a fan of Marvel Cinematic and have enjoyed the films produced, some are better then others, but I still enjoy watching them all and seeing the big picture. My favorites or the Iron Man movies and The Avengers. I’m a fan of the Black Widow. As for Thor I’ve enjoyed the movies, but they weren’t great. It has felt like Thor has gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to his films until now.
Here in Thor: Ragnarok I was blown away. It was AMAZING and is by far the best prediction of a Thor franchise movie to date.
Thor’s been searching for the Infinity Stones and has seen Ragnarok in his dreams. He’s trying to prevent the end of days.
I laughed so hard in this movie. Their was one funny moment after another. The cinema tronics was spectacular. I loved the storyline. Loved the characters and seeing them grow and make new friendships.
I have to say my favorites in this film are the two lead females. We have our evil Goddess Hela and the introduction of a Valkyrie. The introduction of these two strong women was marvelous. Even though Hela is evil, she was wickedly terrific to watch. Cate Blanchett played the role superbly. Just watching Hela do her evil thing was cool to see. Then our Valkyrie who is in a dark place, but finds her way out and stands tall once again.
Then of course Loki, Thor and Hulk where amazing as well. I liked seeing the brothers together again. Thor has grown and learned that Loki will always be the trickster, still doing the same thing over and over, yet in the end they fight together to safe lives. Then we have Hulk and Thor spending time together and making a friendship, a deeper friendship. We also get to see the Hulk character and how he wants people to see him as more and on the plant he is on, he is the Champaign.
Thor: Ragnarok has no shortage of action, adventure, and humor. By far one of my favorites.
One pack, one coven, a destiny intertwined...
Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand-new world.
But the Darkness was not destroyed.
Shifter-Witch Eloise O’Brien has betrayed her Coven and almost killed her brother to save the Were Pack she’d infiltrated as a spy. Now living with the Were she once feared and hated, she learns the truth of who she really is—the prophesied Nexus. A witch of unspeakable power, she must make a choice between the light and the dark, between Iain McShane, the Lone Wolf she is coming to love, and her once beloved brother and Coven who are now working for the Darkness.
The intriguing Pack Bound saga continues in another thrilling romance that keeps readers on the edge of their seat as the wolves and the witches struggle to accept the changes that are taking place in the pack and with the never ending attacks by their evil nemesis.
All the characters in this series are strong and compelling, easily captivating readers with their lives and their romances and Eloise and Iain have a strong sizzling attraction that is pulls them together but their romance is full of strife and upheaval that tugs at readers’ heartstrings and keeps them fully invested in the story emotionally as well as being kept intrigued with every things that is going on.
The suspense and intrigue of all the exciting events that take place in this story keeps readers on the edge of their seat with anticipation as well as keeping them wondering just how the pack will overcome all the adversity and insecurities that flow from the pages as their enemy comes up with new ways to kill off the pack and anyone who gets in their way. There is lots of twists and turns to ensure that the readers can’t possible guess what will happen next.
I was completely caught up in the suspense of the story as well as this emotionally turbulent romance where both the hero and heroine seem to think that neither has a chance at a ‘happily ever after’. This series continues to enthrall me and their enemy continues to incite some very strong emotions from me as well, so needless to say I can’t wait to find out what happens in Moon Bound which is supposed to be released next month.
The 4th book - Wolf Bound will be released on May 1, 2018

Well, this was a surprise. The whole book was a surprise just like the secrets and lies held within, all the way until the end.
I’m now (finally) done with Dark Matter, my latest read for my #ScreamsByMail #HorrorPostalBookClub on Litsy. When I was actually reading it, it sped by, but I took a MASSIVE break in the middle of it because of animal death (yes, I know it’s par for the course in the Arctic circle but I couldn’t deal with it at the time). It reads as a journal, so it’s fast reading, but honestly being stuck on a polar ice cap in the dark sounds like a horror story to me anyway! I can’t think of anything more lonely or terrifying...
I was distracted for a good part of the book by the dogs’ well-being (the main character Jack luckily had huskies for company), as well as how animals are spoken about. This sort of thing trips me up in novels quite a bit (see above). It pulled me out of the actual story, and away from the ‘ghost story’.
Since we are writing in a journal (funnily enough) for the postal book club, and mailing that around too, I won’t write too much here. I will say though, that the writing by Michelle Paver is remarkable and fits very well with the time period and the character she writes for. I was very struck by this. She also obviously did extensive research into the area she writes about (although Gruhuken is fictional), and this is key to the effectiveness of the atmosphere of the novel. It will also ensure that you never, ever find me going near these parts. And it reminded me how much I hate the snow!
