      June Supporter Giveaway   06/01/2019

      For the June giveaway I chose the theme 'The Gift of Reading.' One that I think we can all appreciate! The winner will receive four books, including:     The Gifts of Reading by Robert MacFarlane - 'An essay on the joy of reading, for anyone who has ever loved a book.'   plus three little short but (hopefully) thought provoking reading gifts...   The Reckoning by Edith Wharton - 'Two moving stories of love, loss, desire and divorce, from one of the great chroniclers of nineteenth-century New York life.' Create Dangerously by Albert Camus - 'Camus argues passionately that the artist has a responsibility to challenge, provoke and speak up for those who cannot in this powerful speech, accompanied here by two others.' It Was Snowing Butterflies by Charles Darwin - 'A selection of Darwin's extraordinary adventures during the voyage of the Beagle.'    As always, supporting members will be entered automatically into the random draw at the end of the month. If you want to be entered into the draw but don't support yet, you can do so here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum   Good luck

Oh yes, it's a pain when the new RT comes out and you haven't yet watched the show from the previous week, they should be more considerate about  that.  It used to happen all the time with 24.

 Watched Gardens of Words, and Five Centimetres Per Second. Oh my, they were so good, especially FCPS. The storylines were good, but it’s the beautiful artwork, is amazing.  It’s the light! (*o*)

I'm glad you liked them! I loved Five Centimetres Per Second. I haven't seen Gardens of Words, though I do want to see it some time.

I have chain watched the first two seasons of Stranger Things over the last couple of weeks, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Perfectly captures the spirit of the 80s, but has a great story and some fantastic performances - especially from the kids.  The Goonies meets the X-Files, I cannot recommend it enough! 

 

Same for me, I absolutely adored it!

 

At the moment, I'm binge watching Bron/Broen. I'm on the third season now. I've seen the first season of The Tunnel (the British/French version) and the two seasons of The Bridge (the American version). Enjoying it greatly! I never thought I'd like Henrik, and while I do miss Martin at times, Henrik's not so bad!

I just bought the Bridge (the Swedish/Danish original) two weeks ago and am planning on watching it when we feel in the mood. I've heard good things :).

The Bridge (Scandi version) is brilliant, I watched the first two series of The Tunnel, but the US version hasn't been shown in the UK.

We've been watching Gavin and Stacey. I'd never seen it, and OH loves it. Really enjoying it. I have issues with the premise, but I love the characters. Bryn, Doris and Nessa are fantastic.

I finished watching Mindhunter on Netflix which was brilliant. Now I'm hooked on Ozark. So good to see Jason Bateman in a non-comedy role. :)

Finished Gavin and Stacey. Very sad there isn't more, but it ended well.

 

Just started The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt today. Really liked the first two eps.

It's pretty good. Very cheesy, and that includes the main actress's exaggerated acting, but there's some good humor in it too.

 

We're all caught up on The Good Place (which is getting seriously involved, it started out really comedic in season 1, and there's still a little humor at times, mostly silly humor in the form of Jason being dumb, but it's actually quite emotionally involved and tense at times now. I absolutely love it! 

 

As we're caught up on that, we've started I Zombie too. Good so far!
