One Word: FATHER!!!








(HULU)

* I was interested in checking this movie out because I've been seeing so many trailers about this movie and well, Bruce Willis was in this movie!  I never expected this movie to be so BRUTAL and yet, I still enjoyed it! It was quite action-packed and gruesome!







(IN THEATERS)

* Wow!  I never would have expected to enjoy this movie like I did!  I absolutely loved the first "Men in Black" movie and I found myself really enjoying this movie!  So action-packed and hilarious at the same time!

Waiting on Wednesday #137: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho




Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!







This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:






Title:  Wicked Fox
Author:  Kat Cho
Expected Publication Date:  June 25th, 2019


A fresh and addictive fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul.

Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret--she's a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt.

But after feeding one full moon, Miyoung crosses paths with Jihoon, a human boy, being attacked by a goblin deep in the forest. Against her better judgment, she violates the rules of survival to rescue the boy, losing her fox bead--her gumiho soul--in the process.

Jihoon knows Miyoung is more than just a beautiful girl--he saw her nine tails the night she saved his life. His grandmother used to tell him stories of the gumiho, of their power and the danger they pose to humans. He's drawn to her anyway. 

With murderous forces lurking in the background, Miyoung and Jihoon develop a tenuous friendship that blossoms into something more. But when a young shaman tries to reunite Miyoung with her bead, the consequences are disastrous . . . forcing Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon's.

Wow! This reminds me so much of "Shadow of the Fox!" I can't wait to see if this romance can survive!



So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!

[BOOK REVIEW] Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Seuss







Title:  Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?

Author:  Dr. Seuss

Genre:  Children's / Fantasy

Year Published: 1970

Year Read:  1994 (Re-Read: 2019)

Publisher:  
Random House

Source:  Purchased

Content Rating:  Ages 3+  (Nothing Objectionable)



Man, Dr. Seuss sure did write a lot of children’s books!  Luckily, I was able to read so many of his books when I was little and they were always such a joy to read through!  But when I was little, some of his books managed to make it to these obscure little videos that I used to watch a lot and one of those books that I had watched on these videos was “Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?”  I still cannot believe that I have not written a review for this book yet, but now I am!


“Oh, the wonderful things Mr. Brown can do!”

Mr. Brown can make sounds out of anything.  Like he can sound like a cow by going, “MOO! MOO!” And he can also sound like a bee by going “BUZZ! BUZZ”

Can you make various sounds like Mr. Brown can?


Oh man!  I just loved how Dr. Seuss is able to make a book about sounds be so creative and fun to read!  When I read this book as a child, I always had fun repeating the various sounds that Mr. Brown made, such as making buzzing sounds like a bee, making popping noises like a cork, making sounds like “DIBBLE DIBBLE DOPP DOPP” to represent the sound of rain falling and making noises like thunder and lightning.  Dr. Seuss’ artwork is as creative as ever as Mr. Brown is mostly clad in a brown outfit which goes well with his name.  I also loved seeing his facial expressions whenever he was making sounds, like having his eyes squint whenever he is making sounds that are hard to do, like a hippopotamus chew gum!


Overall, “Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?” is a fantastic book for anyone who loves reading about sounds and loves reading Dr. Seuss books in general!  I would recommend this book to children ages three and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.
