Then there's the Legends of Tomorrow first look, the spin-off series from Arrow and The Flash, and I have nothing to say other than SARA LANCE IS ALIVE. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ I have only watched bits and pieces of Arrow, and I know that Sara's death devastated and angered so many people, so seeing her resurrected onto the spin-off surely was a pleasant surprise. And also, Wentworth Miller and Arthur Darvill (Rory from Doctor Who). I approve of this casting.
I'm only vaguely aware about the Mad Max franchise (I mean, who doesn't know about the infamous "two men enter, one man leaves" from Thunderdome?), however certain hilarious reactions are making me reconsider actually watching Mad Mad: Fury Road, which features Charlize Theron as a main character. I mean, I'm all for good action flicks and the universe of Mad Max in general seems very interesting to me, just based off what I remember seeing in the previous films. And it's been getting good reviews so far, so I might end up watching it. I don't know whether in the theaters or not, but eventually I'll see it.
And now, a book meme:
Physical book or e-book?
Both. Physical books because I can't not ever love reading them, and e-books are a convenient way of transportation when you are traveling or just don't want to carry around multiple heavy books. For me, there really shouldn't be a debate on whether which is better or whether one is replacing the other.
Audio or book in hand?
I prefer book at hand, because I love reading with the voice inside of my head. Sometimes audiobooks don't really have a great narrator and it kind of loses some of the interest, depending on how they read. I also don't listen to audiobooks all that much, except for when I get them because certain people read them. *cough*Richard Armitage*cough* (◕ω◕✿)
Paperback or hardcover?
Adult or Young Adult? Both?
Both. I mean, YA does get a bad reputation because of either it is deemed too immature because it was written for girls (which wtf) or simply because people focus on the really horribly written ones and pass judgments based on that alone, but let's be real. Both adult and YA novels have their strengths and weaknesses; rare treasures and ones that are just rotten apples of the bunch. Don't nitpick one and think the other is flawless, and don't judge others for reading something just because it's of a particular genre.
Series or Standalone?
If I like a series, then I'll read more of that series. If I like a standalone, and the author is really good at writing, then I'll pick up more from that author. So basically, both.
Dog ears or bookmarks?
I've never dog eared a book. Not because I think it's defacing a book, but simply because I never saw the point. I use bookmarks or I remember where I left off.
Breaking the spine or barely opening the book?
I just open the book and start reading. I know this may seem blasphemous to some book lovers and I know that there is apparently a particular way of opening books, but I just never really cared that much about that whole thing. It's not like I'm careless with a book or anything, most of my books are in very good shape.
Borrow or buy?
I buy more than I borrow, e.g. library.
Bookstore or Online?
There used to be a Borders that was close by that I would go to and purchase books from all the time, but when they went out of business the one of like two Barnes and Noble stores around our area is farther away. So, unless it's the occasional visit to B&N, it's all online purchases.
Fiction or non-fiction?
The majority of what I read is fiction, though I do enjoy the occasional non-fiction story. I am intrigued with certain autobiographies and collection of essays and such.
Fantasy world or real life issues?
Interestingly enough I like reading more about real life issues, mostly of the thriller and horror genre.
Kindle, Ipad, or other?
Monster read or short and sweet?
Both, although since I am a slow reader it will take some time to get through monster reads.
Starry eyed romance or full of action?
I'm picky when it comes to romance, since most times it can involve incredibly overused and tired tropes and becomes so predictable it pains me. But sometimes you'll find a gem that just gives you all the feels. So, despite the latter bit, I certainly enjoy a bit more action, or in my case a bit more suspense and emotional gripping moments.
Zombies or unicorns?
Yes please, both. Perhaps a combination.
