Month in Review | May 2016

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

 Hello, blogger friends! I do hope the month of May has been a good one for you all. With yesterday’s Memorial Day holiday, we’re reached the unofficial start of summer – and of course, another new season for new books! 

Another month’s close means another “month in review” here on Finding Wonderland. 

…..Favorites from May 2016….. 

1. Armchair BEA 2016 | I joined the Armchair BEA even this year, and really enjoyed it. If you'd like to check out my posts there, feel free to do so. They're all readily found under the 'Armchair BEA 2016' tag.

2. Beauty and the Beast Teaser Trailer | Yes, this was a highlight of May. Disney’s live action adaptation of this timeless classic is going to be stunning. Of this I have zero doubt.
As proof of just how excited I am about this one, I wrote a thing on Finding Wonderland, and on Saturday, I wrote something about it on Silver Petticoat.
3. The Blog (Update) | I'm still going through a lot of the blog and either updating old reviews (because they're SO bad) or trying to fix old links. But I do still have a collaborative event blog post stuck in my mind. Hopefully soon-ish it'll be published.
Reviews like The Man From U.N.C.L.E. even got a little "review graphic" during my behind-the-scenes blogging work.
4. Captain America: Civil War | Saw this one on a whim in the theater, and OhMyGosh. How amazing it is. Guess this means I should be sharing my review, huh? Tomorrow, maybe.
5. Pride + Prejudice + Zombies | This movie is finally on DVD. Today. I cannot wait to pick up a copy, and hopefully, power through the book prior to getting my little hands on said DVD. Do we think I can do this!?  

…..Favorite Blog Posts…..
(Blog posts that, while not necessarily the most popular, were fun to write) 

1. Alice in Wonderland (2010) | I had fun revising this review and publishing it this past week. 

2. Dressed for Death by Julianna Deering | LOVED this novel, and learned there's not going to be one more in the series but two. Oh happy day. 

3. Together at the Table by Hillary Manton Lodge | Beautiful story in every way.

Silver Petticoat:  Following in the footsteps of the norm, I enjoyed a fun month at the amazing-ness that is Silver Petticoat. Let’s take a quick look at what I contributed.

Articles and Lists | 10 Upcoming Small-Screen Period Dramas and 8 Upcoming Live-Action Fairy Tales (in production) were my "list" contributions, and on Saturday, I wrote about Beauty and the Beast with the piece Exploring Disney's Beauty and the Beast Teaser Trailer (because is there such as thing as "too much" discussion when it comes to BATB?) 

Film and TV Reviews | The 5th Wave (a YALit adaptation based on the best-selling novel); Can't Help Singing (a musical classic starring Deanna Durbing); David Copperfield (PBS Masterpiece adaptation); and What a Girl Wants (throwing it back to this lovely "classic" starring Colin Firth).
Romantic Moments | I contributed one Romantic Moment of the Week series with The Choice's Gabby and Travis from Nicholas Sparks' film adaptation.  

TV Recaps | I finished writing my series five Call the Midwife recaps on Silver Petticoat. *sniff* What a beautiful albeit emotionally taxing season. You can find them all by using the 'Call the Midwife recap' tag on Silver Petticoat. 

As always, thanks to the editors of Silver Petticoat and my fellow contributors! Working with you all is always fun.
That's it for a look back at the month here on Finding Wonderland. I'm not sure what next month will bring since I'm still in a state of blogging disorganization, but either way, I'll be here, and as always, thank you for continuing to read Finding Wonderland, which enjoyed a great month because of you.
Thank you.



  1. I just watched Pride and Prejudice and Zombies last was interesting, to say the least! :) I'm glad I saw it, but it wasn't exactly a favorite that I'll watch again and again.

    1. Thanks for sharing about P+P+Z, Kristin! Sorry it wasn't your favorite, but I'm glad you didn't regret seeing it either. :) I've a feeling I'm going to love it. But time will tell. I did start the book, so now it's just a question of whether or not I can have patience to finish said book before watching the DVD. (Which I did buy a copy of.)
