The Week In Review #117

October 7, 2018 Memes 25

BMR,OHMy (1)The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? Β If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.

Not a lot happened this week except for stressing over my latest project for my animation class. Oh I did fall down and bit a bruised but not real bad. Hip is a little stiff but overall good.

Went and seen Smallfoot and it was so funny! Only thing is now that I am taking this animation course all I could think about was how much time it took for them to animate all that hair on the Yeti’s!!! LOL. I have a new outlook on anything animated now. πŸ™‚

Happy reading!

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Wow, will you look at that I got nothing! Must have got them all last week…lol. πŸ™‚

Books read last week

  • The Haunting of Hill House – Well, this wasn’t as good as I was hoping. It was atmospheric but kind of slow and really not a lot happened and the end didn’t make sense to me. πŸ™ I am bummed.
  • Dark Water – This is a romantic suspense with some paranormal aspects as it deals with a psychic. I really liked this one so at least I enjoyed one of my reads. πŸ™‚

Currently reading

Β Β 

Working on a readathon on booktube called Books in the Freezer. These are all the books I need to finish by the 14th!

  • Feed – This one wasn’t my first pick and I am not a zombie fan but the book I was going to read for this challenge (read a book from a POC or LGBQ+) didn’t pan out I didn’t like it. So found this one on hoopla. 2 hours in and it’s okay.
  • Dark Scream – Read three of the stories so far and blah. I mean the first one was okay but the other two not so much. I am not a huge fan of short stories.
  • Something Wicked This Way Comes – Just getting started so finger crossed I like it! πŸ™‚

What might be up next

  1. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Ow! Hope you’re doing okay from your fall! That’s great about seeing the movie and having a new appreciation for animation! I always remember wayyyy back when things were still hand drawn and they would show clips of the artists drawing moments from the Disney movies and such and how it was all so detailed. That took a lot of work too! Not saying it’s any easier with computers, but you got to think of all the hand cramps those artists got! Lol.

    Yay for not adding to the TBR pile! I really only added one book and one novella to my palate. The rest were keeper copies! LOL!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

      Even though it’s digital there are a lot of individual digital drawings that go into things, the animation process is sped up but you still have to move things in certain ways to make them look like they are moving. I couldn’t imagine having to do them the flip book way they use too…lol. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Yeah, the different types of animation is so out there. I am just animating a small thing with a background and I am stressing out, so to make a whole movie…gah!

    • Stormi

      I am seriously shocked…lol. I am sure that restraint won’t hold out for long…lol

    Yeah I imagine animating is a TON of work, especially for some of these shows that are so detailed. I remember reading somewhere once that the old stop- motion special effects sometimes took MONTHS to film as they had to do every frame individually. Now with computers they can do so much more but I bet it still takes forever!

    Hope the spooky books are good this week!

    • Stormi

      Stop motion takes forever and still does. Those clay animations they make now days could take up to 4-6 years to make as they still have to move it, take a pic, move it take a pic…lol. We are suppose to do a small one and I am so nervous…but right now I am stressed about the thing I am doing now…lol.

    Sometimes it’s a relief not to get any new books, especially when you’re already swimming in them.

    An animation class sounds cool! But I’m sure it’s like studying theater production or music or acting — or writing, for that matter. You stop being able to simply enjoy the movie or concert or play or book, and start seeing it as the artist would: noticing the techniques, the tricks, the things that look simple but are incredibly hard to pull off, the places where something was brilliant and the places where something didn’t work.

    Have a great week!

    I think you will do great in animation class, don’t stress yourself out.

    YES could you imagine having to draw each scene! That always fascinated me!

    I hope you have an awesome week, Stormi! Happy Reading! ox

      Unfortunately I didn’t care for it much. I am not a huge zombie fan but if I read something I want a lot of zombie action and less political whoha. πŸ™
