The Sunday Salon*: Just a Few Things

--I will have a discussion post up for film club about Fargo on Tuesday. I watched it this weekend. I'm not sure I have much to say about it, so please come discuss. It both made me more interested and less interested in the show, ha. Ooops I should probably save this for that post!

--I am very excited for NBC's Rosemary's Baby. I liked the original film quite a lot, I love Zoe Saldana, and Patrick Adams will be a fantastic asshole husband, let's be real. Here's a teaser!

--Baseball started this week! There was a lot of rain, the Cardinals had a few very close games with barely any hits and then all hell broke loose. It's weird how nice it is to see the team again, aw baseball <3 --Speaking of, Shelf Awareness had a nice piece about baseball on Friday, and called it the sport closest to our literary souls. I guess that's why it is my favorite. :) If baseball was a book, though would it be War & Peace? Loooong with a lot of inaction and tons of strategy?

--I have book reviews coming up this week!!! I finally read The Cuckoo's Calling and also Ann Brashares's new one and hopefully more.

--It's weird in life how you can care intensely about something long past its expiration date and then one day you wake up and you just don't care anymore. I'd like to get to a place where I stop caring at the appropriate time, lol I always feel like I let go too early or too late and good grief both lead to regret.

--Oh! I still want to do the zombie book club! I will try to compile a list for voting later this week!

--Speaking of The Walking Dead, we were right? I ♥ Scott Gimple. He really is the best showrunner this show has had, and I love his perspective on it. For instance in a post-finale interview he said this, "I don’t think hope is looked at [enough]; hopelessness is en vogue, so I think it’s really cool that hope is a little punk rock." Of course this is why I love him, lol, that's adorable.

*I don't know I still use the title Sunday Salon, it just seems fitting somehow
