Winter Non-Reading Wrap Up Reviews
Honestly, I don't know how you fit all these things in Katie. Pure madness. I wish I went to see half that much theatre! Also, thank you so much for shout out on my day in the life video. Very glad you enjoyed it. And huge congratulations on your promotion. :D
Really enjoyed listening to you talk about things other than books Katie! I'm very excited to see The Miniaturist adaptation. I think it plays here in the US in April. Though I didn't love the book I think the adaptation might work for me. I love how you highlighted really interesting videos from booktubers, many of them I haven't seen so I will definitely check them out. It was also really interesting hearing about your writing. I wish you the best of luck with your journey!
Interesting video, Katie! Congratulations on the promotion! I need to check out those board games as possible gifts.
Chuck Norris doesn't drink, water goes into him.
OMG...I am listening to this video and when you mentioned HAMILTON... I just smile so wide...I am going to watch it this month, but how can you resist not to listen to the music before??? I suggested the mixtape also, which contains some entirely new tracks and those are really good too.... Good luck with your novel, is it ok to disclose what is it about??😉😉
Rachel's Reading Corner
I adored the new Star Wars, I had so many issues with the last one but the new one was great :) So glad you watched Princess Mononoke!
Do check out the manga Nuasicaa of the valley of the wind, it's a genuine masterpiece and it's been on sale quite frequently lately, well worth every single penny, it's the best thing I own, over 1000 pages of amazing art and a deep and meaningful storyline, I guess no less can be expected from the brilliant mind of Miyazaki.
Princess Mononoke is a truly amazing film. I did one of my undergrad papers on it and presented it at a conference (deforestation, industrialization, feminism, etc.). It sounds like we have similar Ghibli taste. I love Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle and Nausicaa and the Valley of the Winds the most. If you liked Princess Mononoke, I recommend Nausicaa. It has a female MC and lots of commentary on balancing with nature as well. It came out in 1984 and the success of the film allowed Miyazaki to start Ghibli :) Ahhhh and best of luck with cutting your novel!!!!!! So exciting!
Don't worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.
Congratulations on the promotion!
Winter Non-Reading Wrap Up Wiki
Winter is the coldest season of the year in polar and temperate zones (winter does not occur in most of the tropical zone). It occurs after autumn and before spring in each year. Winter is caused by the axis of the Earth in that hemisphere being oriented away from the sun. Different cultures define different dates as the start of winter, and some use a definition based on weather. When it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere, it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa. In many regi... booktube, books, literature,
