I really enjoyed compiling last week’s Week in Review, so I’m excited to bring a fresh batch of links, reviews and more to everyone. In book reviews I finished the last three books of the Lunar Chronicles series and shared my reviews below. If you missed last week’s G-Nitro’s Week in Review, you can find the first three book reviews there. It was the best book series I’ve read this year, and I have read quite the number of books this year. I also reviewed The Hazel Wood since I won an Advanced Reading Copy in a giveaway. The book comes out in January, and was fantastic, so keep your eyes on that one.
- Rumors of a project involving Brewers Association have jokingly been floating around since GABF, but the campaign has launched at Take Craft Back. While obviously 213 Billion Dollars is ridiculous, it produces some good laughs. Seriously, go watch the video!
- I’ll admit it (and regret it), back around 2005 and 2006 I watched a lot of Fox News, to include Fox & Friends. Sam Weiner decided to watch 15 hours of it, and wants to die. Can’t say I blame him and I hope for a speedy recovery.
- Last week I shared a link full of books great for Halloween, and this week Fierce Reads recommends 3 Ghostly YA Graphic Novels.
- Korean Music Industry is in for some interesting times in terms of digital media. Turns out major music distributors owe over $15 million USD in royalties.
- Personally Pumpkin beers have fallen out of favor with me, but for those who still love them, Paste ranks 63 Pumpkin beers for you.
- I am no fan of Activision, and this patent they won that uses matchmaking to prey on gamers to purchase microtransactions proves why. It’s just a patent, but it is just Activision.
- Found a really interesting article about K-Pop and the fans of Dallas.
- My good friend, Lorie, began a BookTube channel. Her and I have similar tastes in books, so go check it out!
