{Sunday Post} - 22 Seconds, Rise Like Lions, and Top Gun

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer!

Good Morning, Everyone! 

  • Depression likes to sneak up on you when you least expect it and ruin your week. In my case, it's been two weeks. 
  • It might sound like a broken record, but new reviews are coming soon. 
  • Tip: Don't watch true-crime Youtubers late at night. I now sleep with one eye open. LOL! 
  • The first two episodes of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds are good. 
  • I binge-watched Candy on Hulu
  • The Kansas City Royals are still losing. Their record is 11-20. 
  • I watched Top Gun for the first time in twenty-five-odd years. Please, someone, tell me, what is the point of Kelly McGillis's "Charlie" character. She's only there for Tom Cruise to bed. Wouldn't the movie still play out the same way without her? Then again, if the "Charlie" subplot weren't there, we wouldn't have gotten Berlin's Take My Breath Away


What Am I Reading? 

I didn't read much over the last two weeks. Currently, I'm on chapter 16 in Death of the Black Widow by James Patterson and J.D. Barker. Whenever I finish it, I want to return to Dune.

What's New on the Bookshelf?

Some time or another, I picked up 22 Seconds by James Patteson & Maxine Paetro. As the title suggests, it's the 22nd book in the Women's Murder Club. I can't for the life of me remember the last WMC I've read. Was it the Christmas story? Maybe.

The only new title on my Kindle is Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions by David Mack.


  1. I watched two episodes of Candy, and didn't know there were more. Going back to check. I think your Royals are still doing better than my Reds, who are 9-25. My Sunday Post:

    1. There are five episodes total. Yeah, 9-25 is bad.

  2. I keep seeing ads for Candy and have no clue who she is/was or what she did, but I feel like I MUST watch it, (so don't tell me!!!!)

    Sorry about the depression. Hope you catch an upwave soon.

    THAT MUST BE IT!!!! The whole purpose of "Charlie" was so we could get that amazing Berlin song.

    1. In 1980, the authorities arrested housewife Candy Montgomery for killing Betty Gore with an ax. Her defense claimed it was self-defense, and she was later acquitted.

  3. I am planning to watch Top Gun (older One) for the first time ever, as a prep to watch the new one. Can you recommend some good true crime YT channels to watch? I hope you have a great week ahead.

  4. Depression is sneaky and insidious. Hope you are feeling better...

    I want to watch that new star trek show!

    Love Take My Breath Away- and Berlin in general.

    1. Yes, it's a great song.

      ST: SNW has been surprisingly good. It has the TOS vibe, just with a bigger budget.
