Hi all!! My name is Sammi and I'm a pop culture writer, check out my fun takes on things like anime and books!!
Multiverse of Madness is Completely Different from Every Other MCU Movie, and That's AWESOME
Before I start, one more time everyone: Spoiler alert. You’ve been warned. When I tell you that I saw Multiverse of Madness because I heard Sam Raimi was directing it, I mean that. In my eyes, Dr. Strange has never been a character I liked as much as the others, and I didn’t even remember his first move.
Books to Check Out: What I Read in April 2022
April turned out to be a month filled with some interesting character driven fiction. These novels are a little quieter in their drama, and more focused on the emotional turmoil of their characters. They were all super engaging, however, and I’m excited to share a bit about this dynamite batch of books.
Books to Check Out: What I Read in March 2022
I had a hard time picking out books to recommend this month. I went wild with the audiobooks, so I have a lot more than three to choose from. However, I think I’ve picked my favorites from my recent choices, and I’m more than excited to send them out into the world for others to check out as well.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Top 10 Moments
If you’re a massive anime fan like me, you’ve probably either heard of or are seeing the new Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie that just released in the US. I was there, in IMAX, crying at how beautiful the animation was, and it seriously blew me away. That being said, I’ve got ten amazing moments from the movie that I need to talk about, because I almost ascended to the heavens for each of them. If you haven’t seen it already, spoilers ahead. If you haven’t seen the anime, I have a bit of a review here for your reading pleasure. But for now, let’s get into it.
Books to Check Out: What I Read in February 2022
February was a slow reading month for me. Normally I can bang out a few books left and right, but I really slowed down and paced myself this time around. As a result, I only have two books to recommend for February, but that’s still fine. They were both good, long reads that gave me a lot to think about and savor. Take a look and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Books to Check Out: What I Read in January 2022
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon Oh boy. This one cut me deep. Curious Incident is a story about a boy with autism named Christopher as he tries to solve the murder of a neighbor’s dog. The events that follow are filled with heartbreak and struggle, as it starts to unveil deeper truths about his own life.
'The House' Review
A new stop motion movie just dropped on Netflix, and oh boy is it one to watch. The House is told in three separate stories, all stop motion, all creepy. Each story has a different cast of characters, but they all share one thing in common; there’s always a hold the house has on its characters that causes them to suffer.
Books to Check Out: What I Read in December 2021
It’s the last month of the year, so it’s time for my December reads. This is the time to read comforting books, inspiring books, etc. You’ll want something nice to curl up with on the couch during all the holiday and year-changing craziness going on. Fear not, I had a great batch of books this month, so check them out below.
“Sweetie? Can you look outside for me?” Sebastian was turned away from his wife as he asked, phone pressed to his ear. “Mrs. Greene says it’s urgent,” he added when Georgia groaned into her pillow. Mrs. Greene’s angry squawking continue in the short silence.
Rengoku is the Best Hashira in Demon Slayer and Here’s Why
First of all, massive spoiler alert. If you haven’t seen the Mugen Train arc of Demon Slayer yet, don’t read this yet. Second of all… just hear me out. I don’t mean this seriously, because I literally love all the Hashira now that I’m caught up with the manga. The Hashira are all powerful and unique in their own way, and I like them all for different reasons.
Anime to Watch: Jujutsu Kaisen
I feel like I’m preaching to a choir writing this one. If you know anime and you haven’t heard of Jujutsu Kaisen at this point…I don’t know what to tell you. It’s super popular right now, and for many good reasons. I’ll get into those in a bit.
Books to Check Out: What I Read in November 2021
Look! A new title for my monthly book reviews! I wanted a new title to better reflect what I’m actually reading. I’m not reading new books being released every month, and so on. I’m just trucking through my TBR and showing off some of the cool books that deserve more attention. This month is no exception. I read a few books this month, and oddly enough they all just happened to be fascinating, female-protagonist-driven stories that blew me away.
