2 Books I Read Last Month

It seems my initial zeal of reading has slowed down a bit. I only read two books last month.

I am still six ahead in my GoodReads book challenge. And, I still have to open my BOTM for May.

This will be short and sweet so I can get back to what I'm currently reading.

**“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.”**
Jinkies! Daphne and Velma Feature Film + Enter to Win a Copy


My daughter loves watching the Scooby gang solve mysteries. She sees herself in all of the characters. After every episode. she's off to find suspicious activities and expose the bad guy. I am not a fan of the meddling kids. Not as a kid and not now.

Daphne and Velma have their own feature film! The movie is an updated, live-action look at how the crime-solving duo became best friends and solve a mystery. My mystery fan was excited to watch her two favorites in a movie of their own.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Daphne & Velma on Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD on May 22, 2018


As we settled in to watch the movie, I noticed a string of women's names in the opening credits. Produced by Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions, directed by Suzi Yoonessi, one of the writers is a woman, the music and editing were done by women. The movie became a lot more interesting to me.

Besides not being a fan of Scooby Doo and his buddies, the idea of a movie without them seemed weak. As I watched with my kids, it dawned on me that this movie was not made for people in my age group. This is absolutely for a new generation. And, how awesome is it to have women taking the lead. Not only showing how these two unlikely friends teamed up but reimagined with attitude, smarts, and independence.
