Weekly Overview (Jul 3rd & 10th)

Sorry this is a bit late. I’ve been away. So this will cover the last two weeks, instead of one.

There wasn’t a Weekly Overview last Sunday so here it is:

Weekly Overview (Jun 5th)

In the last week…

We looked back at May here at Random Musings in our Monthly Review.

We learned “You Win Or You Die” in the Game of Thrones recap of episode 7.

There was a Q&A with Brian Kirsten, Co-Founder & CTO of FictFact, a free site where you can keep track of your series reads.

News about the highly anticipated adaptation of ‘The Hunger Games’ has been coming thick and fast so there was a movie news update.

Steven Spielberg’s TV series ‘Falling Skies‘ is coming to our screens soon so we thought we’d tempt you with previews of the show.

Books from well-established and popular series were released this week, a few of which we highlighted in this week’s Wishing Well Wednesday.

And we also spotted a real-life superhero in this week’s Freaky Friday.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you next week!

Weekly Overview (May 29th)

In the last week…

ZAM Week 3: Zombies Need Love Too

ZAM saw:

We looked into those who might love you if you’re dead and where to find other undead lonely hearts searching for love.

We offered up some zombie-specific dating tips and showed how one besotted zombie got his human girl.

We delved into the curious world of zombie sex and tried not to puke, and took a gander at what zombie break-ups might look like. The answer is: Not pretty.

And if you don’t feel like participating in a zombie relationship but would like to read more about it this strange little phenomenon then you’ll find a few books in this week’s Wishing Well Wednesday.



Other posts included:

Everyone Stops Dying on Starz’ ‘Torchwood: Miracle Day’
Cover Reveal: Cassandra Clare’s ‘Clockwork Prince’


Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you next week!

And remember:

Zombies only want you for your brain!





~May is ‘Zombie Awareness Month’ (ZAM)~

Weekly Overview (May 22nd)

In the last week…

ZAM Week 3: Survival of the Fittest!

ZAM saw:

We asked whether the zombie apocalypse could really happen which the CDC later all but confirmed the possibility when they acknowledged the undead threat.

Steph supplied us with some much needed survival advice including a weapons guide and I provided some tips on identfying and distracting zombies.

You can test your knowledge gained about zombies and practice your skills at killing them in Practice Makes Perfect.

We scoured the virtual shelves for an ultimate survival book wishlist in Wishing Well Wednesday to fill in any gaps in your knowledge.

I laughed at the Dick Figures video “Zombies & Shotguns” and was intrigued by this week’s Freaky Friday featuring a wise but zombified Marie Curie, an unusual Thanksgiving and a not so pretty Brad Pitt.

Ever wonder How Long Would YOU Survive? Use the college student flowchart or take the Z-SAT test and find out. Plus, a warning on what not to do.

Other posts included:


What’s coming up…

ZAM Week 4: Zombies Need Love Too!

We’ll be discussing whether loving a zombie makes you a necrophiliac.

The living aren’t the only people who have difficulty finding love so there’ll be zombie dating advice and tips on how to attract the best partners.

We’re also going to (reluctantly) look at zombie sex.

And much more!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you next week!
