Hey there, book demolishers!
I hope you are well! I know, I know. I haven’t been posting very much. Hopefully that’s changing very soon. Ever read a book and it takes forever because it’s just slow, but also confusing because there are parts that just aren’t making sense? It’s just…not doing it for you? But you keep going because you’ve got a gut feeling it’ll get better? Yeah, I’m guilty of that.
But hey! I bring you a book list!
I got inspired a little while back by this when watching Alien.
But, also, the remake of Dune revealed its trailer not too long ago and Zendaya is on fire! I’m thinking this is going to be one of the rare remakes that’ll be phenomenal! I haven’t read the series yet, but it is on my wishlist! (I don’t ever advertise typically, but if you’d like to see my amazon wishlist, here you go-here!)
So, with that in mind…
