Wandering with my eyes and heart open, searching for pieces to add to my own personal big picture.

Another Book Already?!

Yeah, I usually have a couple books going at once!

One of my husband’s favorite movies is Omega Man and when we saw I Am Legend, we both looked at each other…

“Wait a minute. This movie is familiar.” We looked it up via the blessed web and found out they are both based on the same book, so I added it to my wish list. That was years ago and I’m finally getting to reading it.

Strange that I’m deciding to pick it up now.

A quick bit of research on the book, I found that it was written in 1954, inspiring movies like “Night of the Living Dead,” a personal favorite. I also read that none of the movies follow the book close enough that the author wanted his name on them, so I’m excited to read the differences.

I’m about a hundred pages in and I’m loving it. For an end of the world by virus that mutates humans into vampires, it’s a fun, light read. Since it was written in the 50’s, of course it has references to ending some war with a nuclear bomb. Is that what made the virus?!

I’ve always been a huge fan of zombies, vampires, and end of the world stories, both in books and film. The causes change within each era but the how people deal with the disasters, government reactions, how they try to avoid it, and deal with each other is eerily familiar.

Looking around me now, watching the news, reading the papers, and scanning social media, it makes it a little more upsetting. Little did I know how real those stories could be and how helpful they’d become in dealing with my own world. No, I don’t think this is the end of the world, but it’s fascinating how predictable masses of people can be and it’s all right there in the stories.

Life imitates art or vice versa?

Behold! The June Newsletter!

Here it is, my dear readers, the June newsletter. If you like short and sweet book reviews, or simply think people who lose their minds over their reading list are a hilarious breed, please sign up for my monthly newsletter.

Once a month, I send out my thoughts on about the five or six books I read in the past four weeks, along with some witty quips about my current mood and situation. I promise I won’t SPAM your email inbox with messages about what to buy and political advertisements.

You might be entertained. You might even find a book you want to read!

Even if you don’t read it…at least you’ll give me and ego boost and raise my readership! Yay!
