It’s a grey, frigid day and I’m stuck in my office. I’ve been horrible at both writing and reading and I don’t even know where my time has gone this past week. I’m really hoping that December can be my reading month, but unless I find buried energy somewhere I may not get around to reading my last seven Goodreads Challenge books. The good news is that I did finish reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them this weekend before going to the movie. I was glad I did, since so many of the beast make an appearance. However, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is not a novel and is therefore nothing like the movie, which I found surprising and quite…dark. I really enjoyed reading the screenplay for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this year, but I’m not sure reading the Fantastic Beasts screenplay is something I want to do. Especially since I’ve now seen the movie, and I’m pretty much a strictly book-before-movie kind of person.
My lunch today consisted of a takeout container of French Onion soup and an accompanying bun. It’s the kind of weather for soup. I will probably eat soup and only soup for the next four months…. at least at lunch time. It’s also that time of year for tea, so I better go make a cup of that right now, before the chill sets in. Tomorrow I will be posing a review of The Glittering Court, and I’m hoping to have two more up in the next week as well. Have you seen the FBWTFT movie yet?
