Last week I was in Chicago, so this week I’ll highlight media that involve Chicago or that I finished while there.
Book of the Week: First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen. I bought this before I left and finished it on Wednesday. It was soooo good. This is a sequel to SAA’s Garden Spells and a fine edition to the gorgeous magical realism world that she’s created. Review to come.
Movie of the Week: Jupiter Ascending. This movie has everything that is important in life. Good actors, bad dialogue, an intriguing plot, air boots, and Chicago. I fully intend to write a review later this week as well.
TV Show of the Week: Sirens. This is a show about EMT’s in the Chicago area. It’s funny and I like it. Not an “OMG I LOVE IT” show, but amusing and fun.
Youtube Show of the Week: The Misselthwaite Archives. I am so excited about this show. It’s The Secret Garden where Mary Lennox is a little older and more cynical. Medlock is her “aunt” and Uncle Art takes all the business trips to New York. Oh, and Robin is a cat. Because a cat is probably easier than an actual robin. This doesn’t have a Chicago connection, but I’m stoked and wanted to share it with you.
Song of the Week: Just You and Me by Chicago. I love this song.
Flavor of the Week: Chicago Style Hotdogs. Oh wow. They are so yummy. For serious.
