banner recap

7 books/novels (including 1 audiobook), 4 comic book trade paperbacks, 18 movies.

What a busy bee I have been! Well… Not really, but you know what I mean. I finally finished my re-read of the Harry Potter series in audio form. The experience was very different from reading the books with my eyeballs. I also got to read two of my most anticipated books of 2016: Sleeping Giants and The Creeping Shadow. One I loved, and the other I was slightly disappointed with, but it wasn’t bad. And then there is the Instagram book. You know, that new release that everybody and their mothers are talking about it and taking a million pictures of and posting them on Instagram: Black Matter. And I don’t know what to thing about this one really… It sure makes pretty Instagram pictures, though. Another one I was excited but scared about was A Monster Calls. I knew this was bound to break my heart and make me cry. I had been delaying it for a long time, but with the movie adaptation coming up, I wanted to read the book in advance and have a few months to digest it before seeing the movie.

Overall, I’d day I had a pretty good reading month. What about you?
