Yes, November is already over, and we’re onto the last month of the year. December. The month of Sinterklaas, Christmas and the Doctor Who Christmas special (though I still have not seen the previous one, oops). But first, we’re going to wrap up November!
Books bought, received
I’d like to call this ‘oops I did it again’. I promised myself I wouldn’t buy that many books, but then Awesomebooks happened, and someone convinced me to buy the Fantastic Beasts screenplay. So yeah. Ehm.
Most of these books were all second-hand, in fact, I believe the FB Screenplay and Vanishing Girls are the only new books I bought. And the Part-Time Indian as well, but that’s an ebook that I got with a discount code as well!
I got the two physical ARCs from a friend, which I had not expected at all. I’d spoken to her about the sequel to Rebel of the Sands but had kind of forgotten about it until I received the package. My first physical ARCs, ahh! The rest of these books were all from Netgalley and I cannot wait to read the graphic novel about the cats and of course the Doctor Who book!
Other stuff bought, received
Lula May cosplay (dress, fishnet stockings, fur vest)
After seeing Fantastic Beasts I completely fell in love with the Goldstein sisters, so when I saw the Funkos at the Popshop, I bought Queenie for myself, and Tina for my best friend whose birthday was a couple of days ago. I also bought another Slytherin scarf, because this one had more accurate colours, and I wanted a souvenir from the Harry Potter movie concert. The DH DVD’s were the last two I still needed, and I could buy them for €10 from someone on Facebook. SCORE.
Read, Watched, Started
All the books I’ve read, movies and TV shows I’ve seen and everything I am currently still reading or watching. Titles with a * behind it are rereads or rewatches. I’ll add a link to the review if there is one.
This month was the month I reached my goal of 100 books, with Rebel of the Sands being book 100. I think the fact that I reached my goal so soon this year is because I’ve read loads of graphic novels throughout the year.
Not many new movies, but I did see possibly my favourite movie of the year this month, which obviously is Fantastic Beasts. The problem is that I am just so not in the mood to commit myself to a TV series at the moment, but the fact that I watched AHS with Tanja helped a lot.
December is hopefully going to be a nice month, with Christmas and Dutch X-Mas Con to look forward to. That same week of DXC I have an appointment with the dental surgeon though, so I am not looking forward to that so much. BUT it is also the week I am going to see Rogue One, which makes it a bit better!
Other than that I hope to see lots of other great movies, buy some great Christmas presents for my family and get some nice ones as well. I’m not going to set a reading goal for this month, and I am not going to pick a huge pile of books I want to read, because I have reached my RC goal already and I think December is going to be the month of reading what I am in the mood for at that exact moment. I do have a little TBR pile, but I’m not 100% going to hold myself to it (have I ever read all the books I mentioned in the ‘want to read’ section below?)
