Pages and Pause Screen delve into A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas and boy, is the outlook grim as they take a critical eye to one of YAs most popular books with no holds barred.
Lulu and Ally break down character progression, looking at the major differences between the first and second book and argue whether it was actual progression, or simply characters out of character. They visit Edge Lord City to discuss Rhysand and the injustice done to him as a character and love interest. They wonder at the need to vilify one character to prop another.
Lots of interesting discussion on possibly the best sci-fi show out there at the moment that no one seems to be watching. From how pretty the show actually looks, to how gritty the inter-planetary politics are, we touch upon all of the things that seem to make The Expanse unique in a market that is has lately been reserved for camp and melodramatics.
Welcome to Pages and Pause Screen, your weekly podcast on all things foolishly bookish and dorky. Today, Lulu, Ally, and Helga finish the last half of A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas!
Be warned, this is a full spoiler podcast about the entire book. Get ready for everyone to defend their positions and points of view, stemming from the wild speculations made during the last podcast.
For next week, our magical wheel of chance chose TV as the category, so we’ll be discussing sci-fi show, The Expanse!
Welcome to Pages and Pause Screen, your weekly podcast on all things foolishly bookish and dorky. I’m your host Lulu, resident book blogger over RoadsideReader.com. Today, I’m joined by Ally and special guest Marc to talk about Disney’s Moana, as chosen by the magical wheel of destiny!
As always, this is a full spoiler podcast, so be sure to watch Moana before you check in! We discuss what had us ugly crying, laughing our faces off, and worried us in Disney’s latest animated film (including observations made on how Disney has treated their PoC heroines differently than the typical white/European princesses).
As I try to catch up to my weekly playgroup, I realize just how boring Lothlorien is, even though is is gorgeous. Killing orcs in the tiniest area because there is nothing else to do. Moria was a grind, Lothlorien is a grind.
Please, just get me to Mirkwood already!
Welcome to Pages and Pause Screen, your weekly podcast on all things foolishly bookish and dorky. I’m your host Lulu, resident book blogger over RoadsideReader.com. Today, I’m joined by Ally and YouTube gamer/vlogger Helga to talk about the first half of Sarah J Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses!
Be warned, this is a full spoiler podcast about the first half of the book, and if you couldn’t tell from the title of the podcast, there’s plenty of foul language.
