Happy FriYAY, boom fam!! VICTORY! We made it! Who's ready for the weekend? *3 sets of RI&W hands are in the air right now* Tonight, hubs and I are doing our quarterly beer tasting with some friends and family, and I'm so excited! It's such a fun night with our favorite people, and this weather is SO perfect! It's beautiful and warm today! What are you most excited for this weekend?
Yinz guys know my deep, deep love for The Darkest Minds by @alexbracken.
Dystopian is my all time favorite genre because it asks some really hard questions about humanity and morals. Done well, dystopian should be terrifying and should make you question your life as it is currently so you can avoid what *could* happen down the road if you're not careful. That's truly what dystopian novels are, right? Cautionary tales. That's why I chose it for today's Friday the 13th "Villains" post! It's not your typical horror go-to, but there's nothing scarier to me than an authoritarian national leader who abuses his power and controls the lives of those under him.
QOTD: In your opinion, what makes someone a terrifying villain?
: Friday the 13th: Terrifying Villains (President Gray)
: Villain you’d team up with (Clancy Gray)
: Suriel | Know-It-All (Chubs)
: Gladioli | Favorite Warrior (Vida)
