5 books/novels (including 1 audiobook), 2 comic book trade paperbacks, 3 movies.

Oh hey! Look at me reading all the books! I don’t even know how I managed to read this many actual books this month… A happy accident I guess. Well… Maybe not entirely. At the beginning of the month I decided to re-read Ender’s Game, an all-time favourite of mine (actually it’s the book that made me fall head first into the SF genre), and it was still so good!!!! After several months of being not so thrilled with the books I was reading, re-reading something that I genuinely love and enjoy probably reignited my “reading fire” (idk, don’t ask, I just came up with that). And overall, it was a pretty reading month quality wise as well. I pretty much enjoyed everything I read. Which is nice!

Also, are you bored with the way I present my monthly wrap-ups? Because I am. But I don’t know how to make them differently… Do you have any suggestion?
