Who is your favorite “Chosen One”? I LIVE for the chosen one trope. Maybe because while I’m reading I think it would be awesome to be the one with the special power and the only one who can save everyone. Then I get into reality and realize I don’t want anyone relying on me alone to save them. ha. But how cool would you feel if you were Arthur pulling the sword from the stone? This week I was given early access to watch the first five episodes of @cursed by Frank Miller and Thomas Wheeler. I’ve been excited for this show since the release of the book, as the book release and the announcement of the Netflix show was simultaneous. (Also thank you to @simonteen for gifting me a copy of the new TV show cover edition!) The Lady of the Lake and King Arthur are two of my favorite legends and I SHOULD have KNOWN this show would be brutal because I’ve read the book. 🤣 But for some reason I did not prepare my delicate constitution for this show when I started it. 😂🙈OMG guys, the show was beautiful and I love the casting but man was it gory! 😂😳😂 I spent three episodes on the edge of my seat because I am an anxious TV watcher and I can’t handle the suspense when lives are on the line. Haha. I told all my Game of Thrones loving friends to watch CURSED and then to come back and tell me how proud they are of me that I watched the first three episodes. They know I’m a wimp. As a reader, it’s so fascinating to watch a book come to life and I think it would be such a dream to be an actor in a book-to-screen adaptation playing out your favorite story. I know there were a lot of mixed reviews on the book but I do think that those people will enjoy the show more. It seemed better suited as show and Arthur is 😍Are you planning on watching this weekend? Are you a fan of Arthurian legends? #cursed #netflix #frankmiller #thomaswheeler #booktoscreen #kingarthur #bookstagram #onthebed
