When Sharks Attack with Kindness

When Sharks Attack with Kindness by Andres J. Colmenares Such a cute book and a quick read for anyone who needs their spirits lifted and a smile.

Available on Hoopla.




Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

I am not one that memorized all of the hundreds of pokemon, but in this movie that is okay because they created this movie in such a great story telling way that you didn't have to have them memorized. The comedy of Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu and Justice Smith as Tim is a match you have to see. The colors and action in this movie are amazing.


Pokemon: Detective Pikachu (Rated PG) is available for checkout on DVD.



56 Days

I was intrigued by this book from the start. The concept of having two people who just met during the early stages of the pandemic is something that can be applied to everyone. The twists and turns of this book are rather eye opening into how other people's lives were affected by covid. There were highs and lows of this book, but was an overall a good read. 

56 Days by Catherine Ryan Howard is available in both ebook and eaudiobook on eMediaLibrary. Also available as an ebook on Hoopla.




Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (Wii)

This video game is set up so you can play chapters through the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. As soon as you finish a level you can choose to go back in and unlock more or to continue with the story. The way the game actually follows the movie storyline is very captivating.

Lego Disney Pirates of the Caribbean is available for PlayStation 3 for checkout.

Murder on the Orient Express

The Murder on the Orient Express (2017, Rated PG-13) movie is highly underrated. The suspense, drama and the amount of questions that has you acting like a detective yourself is what makes this movie great. Just when you think you know how the movie is going there is a twist. 

The movie is based off of the book of the same name by Agatha Christie




The Longest Day of the Future

The Longest Day of the Future by Lucas Varela is different . It has no words, side text or even thought bubbles. I really liked the different take on how you have to focus on the images more to get the story. At first, I thought the book moved around a little bit and it took a second for me to understand where the novel was going, but the story as a whole was good. 




Jaws

 Jaws (Rated PG) is a classic movie that has you questioning what is in the ocean at all times. The amazing camera shots and music drive this movie to be one of the most notorious movies of all time.

Available for checkout on DVD.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black is amazing. This book is labeled under teen, but I think that the story is for everyone. A fantasy adventure that has you gripping the book to find out how the characters will survive. 

You can listen to the eaudiobook through eMediaLibrary (Libby).




Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is an action-packed sequel to Venom. There was a lot of set up in this movie to understand the timeline and how Eddie Brock gains a new enemy. The arrival of a new enemy, Carnage, sets the movie off with a bang. The drama between venom and Eddie continues as they fight Carnage to epic proportions.

In Five Years

I don't normally binge read a book in one sitting, but In Five Years by Rebecca Serle had me continuously flipping to the next page to find out what would happen next! Such a great storyline that makes you think about your future.

In Five Years is available as an ebook and eaudiobook on eMediaLibrary (Libby).

Ron's Gone Wrong

I laughed so much during this movie. The awkwardness of the robot Ron is cute and funny. Barney wants to fit in and with the new invention of B-Bots' ability to make friends, everyone has one, except for him. When he does get a B-Bot it turns his life upside down. A fun journey of friendship.

Watch Ron's Gone Wrong on a Roku with Disney+ .

Strange Planet

Strange planet: [imagine pleasant nonsense] by: Nathan W Pyle is an easy read graphic novel that has funny themes to it. The aliens are put in a human position and know a little bit about our everyday items and how we live, but are still very funny guessing them and how they work.

Available as an ebook on Hoopla.



Jungle Cruise

If you like action, dad jokes and more dad jokes this is the movie for you. I loved this movie and how Disney was able to transform the story of a ride from the Disney parks into such a great movie. The action of  Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt blend well into the adventures down the river. 

Available to checkout from the library on Blu-Ray and DVDAlso available to watch on Disney Plus, checkout a Roku with Disney Plus to start streaming Jungle Cruise (PG-13).

everyone's an aliebn when you're an aliebn too

Yes, the title of this novel is correct. This is how most of the writing is in this book, but it is for a specific reason. The aliebn Jonny has come to Earth to learn what it is like to be a human being. This journey as to what it means to be a human being and how to make friends. The author Jomny Sun does an amazing job with showing some deep feeling and resonating with the people who are reading it who might not fit in where they are in life. A quote from this book that I believe sums up the tone is, "look. life is bad. everyone is sad. we're all gona die. but i alredy bought this inflatable bouncy castle so are u gona take ur shoes off or wat". I loved this book.

Everyone's an aliebn when you're an aliebn too is available as an eBook and eAudiobook on Hoopla.

Cyberpunk 2077

This game was super immersive. It was a great game to play and the graphics were decent. The only downside is that the campaign goes by really fast. The in game story was fun and you unlock a bunch when you just play normally. It's all futuristic and cool to see what the designers think that 2077 is going to look like. 

Cyberpunk 2077 (Rated M) is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
