Well, I finally watched Avengers: Infinity War and I’m not sure that I know what I think of it. It ended a lot differently than I expected and I’m just hoping that there will be some sort of clarity/redemption in the next movie. Because right now, I’m just confused as to what’s going on and whether I’m supposed to like it or not.
Note: There’s a lot of action, some violence, and some language in this film. The details here on IMDB do a great job of giving specifics so you can decide whether you want to watch it and whether you think it’s appropriate for your kids (if you were thinking of watching it with them).
I feel like the Avenger movies have so many moving parts and characters now, that it’s harder to keep up with and follow and enjoy. You might totally disagree, but that’s how I felt. And I also feel like some of the characters haven’t had the chance to develop to the depth that other characters have so I don’t know whether I like them or not! 🙂
Have you seen the movie? If so, I’d love to hear what you think!
I also finished This is Me by Chrissy Metz. I actually listened to the book because I was able to rent the audiobook for free through the Overdrive app (check to see if your library is affiliated with this app. It’s the best!)
While Chrissy and I come from very differing viewpoints in many areas (she does acknowledge God and a Higher Power, but theologically, our beliefs would be very, very different) and has a lot of crass language in it (beware listening to it when little ears are around!), as someone who loves This is Us and has been so curious about Kate’s character in that show, I found the book to be very interesting and insightful.
I appreciated how honest and open she was about her struggles and shortcomings and thought that there were many good nuggets of wisdom to be gleaned from the book. Plus, it was just a fascinating look behind-the-scenes into her life and journey. I found it so interesting how much her story parallels Kate’s story and am guessing she can play that character so much more authentically because in many respects, she is Kate.
When I Find Time to Read
People are always asking me how I find time to read. Honestly, it’s because I love to read, because I’ve chosen to prioritize it, because I don’t have a lot of other hobbies, and because I can’t not read. Also, when you love something, you usually can find ways to get creative to find time to fit it in — even if it’s in the little nooks and crannies of life.
I wrote a post on 3 ways to find more time to read — even when life is busy. And here are 7 more ways to find time to read.
