May Is Happily Underway and This Week at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words.

Standard

May Is Happily Underway!

The mailbox is yellow, coated with pollen, azaleas are in full bloom, and bluebirds are busily nesting. Yes, that picture above is mine. And it’s raining today.  Happy May indeed.

Remember when we were talking about what’s old is new again?  One of the books this week is a prime example. The Prisoner of Zenda was a novel by Anthony Hope, written in 1894.  It was also several black and white movies including one made in 1937 by Ronald Coleman, Raymond Massey, and Douglas Fairbanks for those of you who love old movie classics.  This week I will be reviewing The Henchmen of Zenda by K.J. Charles.  Ah, yes!  The familiar turned new!

If you have noticed some familiar titles reappearing lately, it’s due to authors getting their rights back and self publishing their stories.  We support their efforts and hope you will tool  Enough said.  Or maybe not enough.  Let me know.

Lately, I’ve had fantasy and science fiction on the mind with all of the MCU movies and Star Trek movies out there that I adore so much.  I’ve always read both genres growing up and even now grab them up left and right.  I feel a fantasy and SciFy binge coming on…

Be prepared!

In the meantime, I hope you are all out enjoying the wonderful May weather (if you have any where ever you may be).    Let me know what May activities and books have you in thrall.

 

Here’s our schedule this week….

  1. Talking about old books and good movies – my gay book group is reading for this month the Christopher Isherwood classic, “The Berlin Stories.” Set in 1930s, it was the basis of the musical and movie Cabaret, which is one of my favs. Interesting to see how much the “gay-ness” is toned down and subtly coded due to it’s being published back then.
