Welcome to Brandi's Book Musings where the pages never stop turning. My goal is to provide reviews for new books, soon to be released, older books, and those that just haven't received the recognition they deserve. If you have any questions, recommendations, or requests feel free to email me at brandisbookmusings (at) yahoo (dot) com and put book blog as the subject. Thanks for stopping by!
Lately I have felt I need to be in more contact with the
bookish community. Over the last couple of years one of the things I have learned
is that I love reading about the non-book likes and dislikes from other
bloggers and YouTubers. As a way to share additional information and to get
back into the habbit of posting more frequently my new goal is to post my
latest entertainment likes and dislikes a couple times a month.
Music- They All Want You by Lissie
There is just something about this song that I absolutely
love. You can hear heartbreak and wanting in her voice and in the lyrics. Also
check out Everywhere I Go by Lissie. I can listen and do listen to these two
songs on repeat.
TV Shows- Salem on WGN
WOW! First episode and I am hooked. Witchcraft, Salem, deceit, beautiful people being bad, and a hot rebel to save the day? What more could you want? Salem has an American Horror Storyesque vibe to and isn't a show for a younger audience. I don't want to give away anything, but I love the story line (or what it seems from the first episode). I have read some negative comments about the show not being historical enough, to frightening or sexual, etc. First off let's tackle the not historical enough aspect. This is not a National Geographic production it is not meant to be historical. It takes a time period where people were persecuted for witchcraft and expands on this idea to what would it be like if there were truly witches during this time period and their motives and the lengths they went to in order to keep themselves hidden. Don't "preach" on the inaccuracy, enjoy the show for what it is...entertainment. There is plenty of gruesome/frightening witchy scenes as well as sexual undertones and scenes. Do I think they are gratifying? No, I actually believe they enhance the story being told. I loved the first episode and will definitely continue watching it. HuluCheck out the season trailer below:
Last But Not Least...My New PUPPIES!
We got THREE NEW PUPPIES last week! They are now 5 weeks old and are the most precious baby chihuahuas ever! They are so stinkin' cute and hilarious to watch rompingaround.
The 2 on the left are Sam & Dean (boys) and the one on the right is my dad's puppy Dixie (girl). The boys are named after these two awesome guys
I already have a cute dog named Dobby, but he is tempermental and won't let me love him. This is what we look like
