Happy weekend to you all!
You'll be happy to see I am off Harry Potter. In lieu of Nonfiction November, I went with a memoir of sorts. You will all know who she is, another member of the 27 club. (R.I.P.)
I'm posting early since I'll be at work.

Check out this read on Amazon.
Here is my snippet from 16% on my Kindle. That's how far I am.

  5. I saw a documentary about Amy. Poor thing. She was so talented and so lost. There is a saying that certainly applies to her: "Screwed up people make great art." My quotes are from HEY, KIDDO a graphic memoir.

    1. After reading her fathers' words, even just a little bit, LOST is not a word I would use to describe her. She was far from lost. I highly recommend this book, so you can see from the ones closest to her what she was really like. Documentaries are only perspectives.

    And congrats on finishing Harry Potter! :)

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
