    1. I'm guessing it is some kind of tambourine :)

  2. I was a little sad when Witches of East End was taken off the air (I think that's what it was. You know the one with Channing Tatums wife?) I think A Discovery of Witches might be a suitable replacement, though we'll hold off for trailers before making a final decision.

  3. I read A Discovery of Witches and didn't love it so will be skipping that. As for The Name of the Wind, Rothfuss hasn't yet released the third book (and it's been quite some time - like years!!!) so no point in watching that either. And ugh, what an ugly cover. It does look like a guitar and that doesn't look anything like the mc.

    1. I couldn't find a better cover than this one, so I'm guessing the others are fuglier :)
