Sunday Review – 7/24/2016

Hey hey hey! I was MIA for my Friday Favorites post last week, but I figured that was okay. I got most of my regularly scheduled posts out, so I blew off Friday because I worked a crazy long shift at work on Friday.

I’ve also been in a stupid reading slump. However, I can’t tell if it’s an actual slump, or I’ve just been too busy this week to have time for reading. I think it’s a little of both.

So, instead of reading on my Saturday night off last night, I ended up staying up until 04:00 bingeing on Fear the Walking Dead.

I also watched the new Wonder Woman and Justice League trailers and “I’m freaking out man.” I’m. So. Freaking. Excited. ohemgee! Have you watched the new trailers yet? I’m exceptionally excited about the Wonder Woman movie. It’s going to be so cool! I just know it!

  1. OMG I’m SOOOO EXCITED FOR WONDER WOMAN TOO! =) I even ranted a bit about it on my post
    https://ahundredthousandstories.wordpress.com/2016/07/25/reading-update-sdcc-2016-trailer-reactions/
    And it’s funny because I’m not usually even interested in superhero movies..Have you read a lot of the WOnder Woman comics?
    I’m also really excited for Brie Larson to be Captain Marvel as I really liked her in Room so I can expect good acting from her haha

    1. oooo awesome! I will be reading your post later! (I’m supposed to be working right now…woops!)
      I’m so glad I’m not the only one freaking out over it! I actually haven’t read a lot of the comics, mostly just bits and pieces here and there, but I used to love watching the animate Justice League cartoon as a kid and found some solace in the WW character (being basically one of the only females on the show), so I’m super excited to get a movie for my adult self (my inner child is freaking out! haha).
      And yes, I’m happy about the Captain Marvel casting too! I just read my first captain marvel comic and really enjoyed it, so it should be awesome! (Hopefully!)
