Quote of the Day

The diggers-up-of-the-past don't think being called 'diggers-up-of-the-past' is a posh enough name, so they call themselves archaeologists.

Fangirl Friday: Books into TV Shows

This is a great time for TV. There are so, so many good shows out and so many different platforms producing TV. It's a really beautiful thing for someone like me. I work over forty hours a week, nights and weekends, and I have a three year old. I don't have much time or energy for going out to the movies. But, with so many fantastic shows out right now, I don't have to. There are so many shows I could talk about, but given what kind of blog this is and the plethora of choices, for today's Fangirl Friday, I'm going to focus on TV shows that are based on books. There are/have been some absolutely SPECTACULAR translations just in 2017. They are spoiling us, really. So, sit back, relax, and follow me after the break to discuss some great TV shows of 2017.

Quote of the Day

I considered screaming and running past the sentry and back into the courtyard, but stood my ground out of nothing more than sheer stubbornness. I had sought him out, after all. I was a warrior. Warriors don't scream and run.

Quote of the Day

“That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn't even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn't even an enemy you could put your finger on.”

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

“You’ve one mark on your record,” Tamas said. “You once punched a na-baron in the face. Broke his jaw. Tell me about that.”
Olem grimaced. “Officially, sir, I was pushing him out of the way of a runaway carriage. Saved his life. Half my company saw it.”
“With your fist?”
“Aye.”
“And unofficially?”
“The man was a git. He shot my dog because it startled his horse.”
“And if I ever have cause to shoot your dog?”
“I’ll punch you in the face.”
“Fair enough. You have the job.”

“Maybe you should make me a list of people I can kill and ways in which they’re allowed to die,” he said. 

“You are not funny.” 

“I’m very funny. Just ask Peaches.”

“Now that was a kiss,” Grandma Frida said from the doorway behind me. 

I jumped. “How long have you been there?”

“Long enough. That man means business.” 

All my words tried to come out at once. “I don’t . . . what . . . asshole! . . . screw himself for all I care!” 

“Aww, young love, so passionate,” Grandma said. “I’m going to buy you a subscription to Brides magazine. You should start shopping for dresses.”
