Finished my second #trappedonanisland read. This one was pretty good. I liked learning more of Ronan‘s background and family story. These are still good on audio and can‘t wait to pick up the next book.

I was on episode 5 before I realized why the Sandman adaptation felt so weird to me. Sandman is my Thing in a way few stories have ever been my Thing. Over the last 20 years, I‘ve reread it so often I can‘t rate it anymore, spent ages considering ever aspect of its makeup, memorized huge swathes of it, pushed tons of people to read it, and discussed it with everyone who took my advice and dove in. It‘s more than special to me. ⬇️

xicanti The adaptation is well-cast and visually impressive. It makes interesting changes that push the characters into channels that work better for TV and help establish the story‘s place in the wider DC TV Universe. I can see why so many other people are so excited about it all. I liked it myself.

But it didn‘t land the way I wanted it to because for all that, it doesn‘t FEEL like my Sandman. It‘s got a different vibe. ⬇️

xicanti It‘s a totally subjective thing. I‘m sure lots of other people see this as exactly their Sandman because it captures the feel THEY‘VE always got from the comics. I‘m sad I‘m not one of them.

(And, on a nitpicky note, I really wish the Corinthian‘s eyes were as creepy onscreen as they were on the page, and that Dream didn‘t have such human eyes. Eyes are SUPER IMPORTANT to this series.)

wanderinglynn I haven‘t watched it yet, but I did watch some interviews Gaimen did talking about the challenges of adapting the series. Fascinating how they did it. I can‘t wait to watch it. 2d

LibrarianRyan i so binged this. i read book 1 years sgo but that was it 2d
xicanti @wanderinglynn I haven‘t seen any recent behind the scenes coverage, but I remember a big debate a decade or more ago as to whether it even WAS adaptable. I think that was probably when a movie was still more likely than a show, but I can still kind of see them grappling with it via all the exposition in the opening episodes. 2d
xicanti @LibrarianRyan I feel like an awful lot of people binged it last weekend. 2d

This was a very deep dive into sleep! The author covers all the ways that sleep impacts our emotional, physical, and mental health, how sleep is important to business, education, finance, medicine, and more! I do think it made me value sleep more, and I will think about it different now and prioritize sleep! If you are interested in health and wellness, or interesting societal topics, this is a good book.

Mickey falls asleep and has an adventure with bakers in a kitchen. Admittedly, I‘m not a follower of Sendak (I‘m not a fan of Where the Wild Things Are…don‘t hate me!), but I thought I would give this Caldecott Honor a try. It was just okay for me. I was a bit horrified by what the bakers do to Mickey. And, as you view the illustrations, you will guess why this book has been challenged so much over the years.. #BBRC #PictureBook Letter I

LibrarianRyan Yep. One I reference frequently. And I get the wild things. I‘m not the biggest fan either. 4d

Okay, who else is absolutely loving this Netflix adaptation?! I've been a fan for ages, and was a little worried about how they might adapt the series for the screen.

No spoilers, I'm just over halfway thorough, but I'm really delighted with what they've done with it so far!

KathyWheeler I‘m so glad to hear this. I love the graphic novels and have the absolute editions, but I‘ve been both excited for and leery about the show. 7d
batsy What @KathyWheeler said; I've been leery too but it's great to see quite a bit of positive reviews. I'm slowly re-reading the graphic novels and am pretty excited to give the series a try soon. 6d
tessavi I watched the first two episodes and enjoy it so far. I should read the graphic novels some time 🤔 6d
JessClark78 I watched six episodes yesterday. Loved what I‘ve seen so far. 6d
KathyWheeler I watched two episodes today and really like it. 6d

Literary_Siren I‘m excited to start it! 7d
JessClark78 I watched six episodes. I‘m loving it so far. 7d
La_Cori @JessClark78 I watched four episodes and the last one with Lucifer and the duel in Hell was excellent 🤩 I'm a little bit scare of ep.five with John Dee, I still remember the comics 😱😱 7d
JessClark78 @La_Cori The episode with Hell was great. I was a little worried about the diner scene in the John Dee episode. There was a couple brief cringeworthy moments but it wasn‘t too bad. 7d
