It's book week 32 in our 52 Books Quest and this week is all about Gods and Goddess, one of our 52 Books Bingo categories.
Continuing with my read and reread of Nora Robert and currently rereading Blue Dahlia, #1 In the Garden Trilogy.
In my web wanderings and putting the 52 Books post together, fell in like with The Ill Made Mute from a 10 Magical Fantasy books inspired by Irish Mythology so added it to my stacks.
I seem to be in a cozy romance or mystery mode. Just finished reading Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade about a plus size woman falling in love with her celebrity crush and thoroughly enjoyed it.
"Marcus Caster-Rupp has a secret. The world may know him as Aeneas, star of the biggest show on television, but fanfiction readers call him something else: Book!AeneasWouldNever. Marcus gets out his frustrations with the show through anonymous stories about the internet’s favorite couple, Aeneas and Lavinia. But if anyone discovered his online persona, he’d be finished in Hollywood.
April Whittier has secrets of her own. A hardcore Lavinia fan, she’s long hidden her fanfic and cosplay hobbies from her “real life”—but not anymore. When she dares to post her latest costume creation on Twitter, her plus-size take goes viral. And when Marcus asks her out to spite her internet critics, truth officially becomes stranger than fanfiction.
On their date, Marcus quickly realizes he wants more from April than a one-time publicity stunt. But when he discovers she’s Unapologetic Lavinia Stan, his closest fandom friend, he has one more huge secret to keep from her.
With love and Marcus’s career on the line, can the two of them stop hiding once and for all, or will a match made in fandom end up prematurely cancelled?"
We watched the reboot of Tomb Raider which was pretty good but had it's moments of implausibility and typical movie physics. The original is much better.
"Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) is the independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who mysteriously vanished when she was a teen. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Against her father’s final wishes, Lara leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island. Her mission will not be easy; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Against all odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit, she must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, she could earn the name Tomb Raider."
