2016: Movies and Books Edition

Holy shit, Brownies. I haven’t posted since August. Because reasons. Maybe I’ll get into those in another post down the line, maybe I won’t. I’m never very forthcoming with my emotions (unless I’m drunk, which was more often than usual at the end of 2016), so we’ll see.

But, I always kick off the new year with the books and movies I partook in the previous year. The movies list is always huge; I average about a book a month, give or take. Lately, too, I’ve been sticking to smaller press books (for obvious reasons), but I did read a few masters of the genre, so to speak.

Books


  1. This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper – 4/5
  2. A Man of Honor: The Autobiography of Joseph Bonanno – 3/5
  3. Inheritance by Joe McKinney – 3/5
  4. Barlow After Dark by Brad Carter – 4/5
  5. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – 3/5
  6. Hellblazer: Original Sins by Jamie Delano – 5/5
  7. Blackened by Tim McWhorter – 4/5

2015: Movies and Books Edition

As promised in my recap, here’s the list of movies I watched and books I read, along with the respective ratings I gave them. If you’re curious about what the ratings stand for in Brownlandia, read this post here. The post deals with movies, but the book ratings are pretty much the same way. If you don’t want to read that, just take them for whatever you want. This is the website where points don’t matter… oh, wait… yeah…

Anyway, here’s the list. It’s lengthy, due to the sheer number of movies, so you can certainly TL;DR this sumbitch, if you want. IF you read through, leave a comment if you agree or disagree about any of my ratings. I welcome the conversation.
