What I Read
Look at me, I figured out how to do a gallery thing! Anyway I really enjoyed what I read this month!
Love & Other Disasters by Anita Kelly 4.25 Stars – Initially it did take me a little bit to get into it because the characters annoyed me but i’m so glad I stuck with it because I fell in love with them and understood them! I love the nonbinary rep with London! A female/nonbinary romance is what i’ve wanted for so long! Seriously, my queer nonbinary heart is so happy! I need MORE female/nonbinary romances please! Pleeeeeease.
I don’t understand why there has to be a third-act breakup though and am always annoyed at it and the lack of communication. I am aware real life people act like that, but why?

I have nothing to say about the magazines except I enjoy learning.
I then added my now finished and up Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988) fanfiction “A Strange Hope” that’s on AO3 on Goodreads. I didn’t put the “cover” picture up there because it has no cover. Because I wrote it I gave it 5 stars. I wrote it, obviously I read it, more than once for that matter though because editing. I only counted it once lol.
Kraken by M. Caspian 4 stars – And I have a review on it Here. Gay tentacle non-con.
The Little Mermaid (With Original Illustrations) by Hans Christian Andersen 5 stars – I love The Little Mermaid. I don’t know what to say. The Disney movie owes a lot to the original actually even though of course there is more to the Disney movie. It’s fantasy. It’s a fairy-tale. One of these days I might have to go full on analyzing why I love The Little Mermaid in all it’s forms. That would be it’s own post (or possibly several).
The Little Mermaid by Walt Disney Company (Little Golden Book) 5 stars – Picture book for kids, simplifying the movie into 24 pages of a picture book.
Disney: The Little Mermaid by Editors of Canterbury Classics 5 stars – This has more than just the full film script, it has art from the movie and art concepts that were made during the process of making the film and details about the movie, the characters, tid bits, etc. If you are a fan of The Little Mermaid like I am this is a must have!
I love that Ariel is fiery, passionate, goes after what she wants. There is a lot to her. I’ll recommend This Video on why I think she’s autistic and this book also talks a bit more about her personality, and I absolutely love her! And relate to her. I can see there’s so much to why I love her and always have now, in ways I didn’t see before. I must do more in depth posts one of these days. Because I know I can.
Movies I Watched
Goosebumps 2 (3.5 stars) (2018) – I enjoyed it. It’s been years since I saw the first one actually and I finally saw the second one. I had given the first one 5 stars (on letterboxd) so I did enjoy the first one more but I liked this one to.
Nekromantik (unrated) (1987) – I hate myself. That’s my only explanation. I seek out the most disturbing shit and I have no idea why.
The Little Mermaid (1989), The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea (2000), and The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning (2008) I gave all 5 stars. I love them!
The Little Mermaid Live! (2019) (1 star) – You can give .5 stars on Letterboxd. That full 1 star is because the live cast did a good job, but the way they butchered The Little Mermaid and the singing was live and words were changed and weirdly modernized and I just .. I didn’t like it.
What did you read, watch, do in May?
