During a pre-recorded video message for King Charles’ coronation, Tom Cruise appears and literally says the words, I sh*t you not, “Pilot to pilot, Your Majesty, you can be my wingman any time.” If there was a god in Heaven, the box office for both Top Gun and Top Gun: Maverick should’ve immediately turned to salt. In the spirit of fairness, it pains me to reveal that this moment was teed up by Pierce Brosnan, who feted Charles for developing “a host of action man skills.” Never worship celebrities, kids. Not even once. (Variety)

The theme for Cannonball Read 15 is Travel Your Bookshelf. MsWas looked back in time to all the books she added to her Goodreads Want to Read list on June 14, 2010. She picked Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine and didn’t know what to expect, “it turned out to be a bunch of lovely little vignettes about summer in 1928.” Which book was nothing like you thought?
