What’s Up 2020: Week 22

Week 22 wraps up the month of May and marks over 2 months of lockdown phase. Its been one of the slowest weeks in terms of progress as I had a lot of work stuff to take care of that affected a lot of other progress. However, I still managed to get a few things ticked off the list. Let’s check it out!

READING

to wake the dead

  • To Wake The Dead (The Dead Dreamer #2) by Sarah Lampkin (Review)

Currently reading:ย No Signal

Book 2 of To Wake The Dead was definitely a fun read. Its a series that reminds me a lot of watching TV series like Shadowhunters and The Vampire Diaries both in the fullness of events and the direction it chooses to take. Its mostly compliments and you can check it out in the review which is already posted and linked above.

I’ve moved on to an upcoming blogging commitment as I tackle another sequel of a book that I reviewed earlier this year called Proximity (review). This has a wonderful world building set up from the first book as well and is something of a tech thriller which is rather well thought out. So far, the sequel is pretty decent and hopefully it will remain that way. However, I am still in the first half so we will see.

PLAYING

orwell

  • Orwell: Keeping an Eye on You (2016)

Orwell was released in 2016 and is something similar to the premise of No Signal where this reality has a government sets up outside people to monitor the information of everyone to protect their society. Of course, the debate is whether it works for the people or against them, right? Its an investigative style of game where you read through articles and find info to put together target people profiles. This is just Season 1 of Orwell and its out upcoming game review on Game Warp so I won’t talk too much about it.

WATCHING

joker

  • Flowers in the Attic (1987)
  • Joker (2019)

Another slow week in movie watching! I’ve just been incredibly indecisive on watching movies so its slowed down the progress as I compile a watch list for the alphabet themed Double Feature. Its cutting it close since I’m running out of movies to review so need to pick up the pace. However, we did have to catch up on a rental for Joker that was about to expire. Joker had a lot of talk last year and we wanted to give it a watch to see whether it lived up to all the good reviews. For the most part, it did. Joaquin Phoenix takes on Joker in a different way and I’ll talk about it more in an upcoming double feature (once I find a film to pair it with outside of the alphabet double feature…).

BINGING

please love me

  • Please Love Me (Season 1, 2019)
  • Youth With You 2 (Season 2, 2020)
  • The Great Canadian Baking Show (Season 3, 2019)

Currently binging: Produce Camp 2020, Me to Us, Woof Meow Story, Go Fridge 6, Welcome Back To Sound, Yes I Do 2, The Big Flower Fight

A show knocked off the currently binging list from last week but as usual, I’m adding more to it while catching up with some that I’ve put aside for a week or so. At the same time, I didn’t return to one or two shows this week while at the same time starting up some completely new shows. One of them is going back to a show I had meant to watch last year but didn’t called Please Love Me which was pretty bingeworthy other than a few elements that I’ll talk about when I get around to the TV Binge. I’m deciding on what my next show to watch is since I’m debating on whether to watching something currently releasing or catching up on another of last year’s dramas (or this year’s) that I didn’t get a chance when it was first released. Either way, I’ll figure it out while watching a bunch of variety shows.

That’s it for Week 22 recap!
What have you been reading/watching/playing/binging?

  1. The very provocative series “Normal People” on Netflix is terrific if you are comfortable with a lot of sexual activity. It’s the story of two people who meet in high school and continue to cross paths…incredibly well acted and raw and honest
