Ready Player Two, by Ernest Cline || A review by pj

If you didn’t know, Ready Player One is one of my favorite books of all time, and I’ve recommended it to a few friends… only two of them read it, but all of them watched the movie and… they all thought it was ok. And that’s fine, you know? I recognize that it’s not the best book out there and that it has its flaws.

So, RPO came out in 2011, then the movie came out in 2018 and since money makes the world go round, a sequel came out in November of 2020.

Now, what does a major RPO fan has to say about this awaited(?) sequel?

All the Netflix Parties || Oct – Dec 2020 Edition

Hello everyone! My name is pj, and here in reviewerpj we’re still sort of living in the past. Proof of this is that I’m still doing wrap up posts telling you about the movies I saw in the last 3 months of 2020 (series and books in the previous post).

But I promise you this is the last thing 2020 related that you’ll hear from me.

This is going to be kind of long… so let’s get started!

Sorry I’m late, I didn’t want to come, by Jessica Pan || A review by pj

Welcome! My name is pj, also known as reviewer pj, and this is my first book review in almost a year. Last year I didn’t read enough review-worthy books, but watched a lot of review-worthy series.

This time we’re reviewing a self help book! It’s been years since I’ve read anything that could be considered self help (like 10 or 11 years maybe?) or non-fiction and not because I have anything against them, in fact, I should probably read more of that genre, but if you know the first thing about me is that I like my books as further away from reality as possible.

A couple months ago I found myself in ye ol’ Goodreads looking for self help books for a friend (yes, really) and I stumbled across this one. The phrase “An introvert’s year of saying yes” (or “An introvert’s year of living dangerously“) spoke to me so I added it to the list and several months later, here we are.

Second of all, welcome to my first post of the year 2021! In 2020, we ended the year talking about the best books, series and movies that I saw and read last year. Now in 2021, we’re doing the opposite and talking about the worst movies, series and books I saw and read last year and I’m going to briefly talk about my top 3 of each category.

So, here we go!

All the books I’ve read and series I’ve watched this year || Part 2 June – Sept

We talked about all the movies I watched this year (until September) here and here.

We talked about all the books I read and the series I watched (until May) here. And now it’s time for part 2 of the books, series and anime.

And might I just add… I went a little bit out of control with the series… It’s been a rough couple of months and fiction is not only my escape, but it’s also my friend, and without it, my mental health would be far worse than it already is. So anyways, thanks to those fictional stories that stayed by my side. This one’s for you.

Julie and the Phantoms || A Netflix Series Review, by pj

It’s been 2 months, people, and in that time, I traveled (but I was extremely careful and got tested before and after), finally quit the most horrifying job I’ve ever had, while keeping my slightly less horrifying other job, and my Canada plans got pushed back for 2 months because visa procedures SUCK at the moment.

I also thought a lot about making this review even though it’s been several months since it came out, but, oh heck it. Here it goes.

All The Netflix Parties I’ve been to (Part 2: June – September)

Oh June, still in the middle of a global pandemic. My city was starting to reactivate and businesses were opening up and I was starting to go out again like 2 or 3 times per month. June was also the month when I realized that I got so late with the Monthly Wrap Ups that I decided to just put them all together in this simple, and long post alluding to the, back then, new Netflix feature to watch shows and movies with your friend, Netflix Party (now known as TeleParty).

Also because I’ve watched way too many things since June, we’re going to split this into movies and series. So here we go, Netflix Parties part 2: Movies edition.

(Disclaimer, not all of these are on Netflix)

Avatar: The Last Airbender & The Legend of Korra || a review by pj

One of the many non-productive, but very important things I did during this quarantine period (even though we’re not quarantined anymore) was FINALLY watching the series that everyone in my generation and their mother know about.

Because, believe it or not, before August 2020 I had no idea what this Avatar show was all about.
