Wrap-Up: March 2018
It’s time to wrap up another month! March kind of flew by and though I didn’t do a lot of things, I do have some cool things to talk about! So let’s hurry and wrap things up!
Books bought, received
- Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
- Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
- Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
- Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
- W.I.T.C.H. pt. 1, vol. 2 by Elisabetta Gnone
- W.I.T.C.H. pt. 1, vol. 3 by Elisabetta Gnone
- Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
I think I was pretty mild with my buying this month! I’ve read most of these books already, except for CoB&B, Aru Shah and Ready Player One. So yay me!
I went to the Marissa Meyer event in Eindhoven two weeks ago, where I got both Cinder and Renegades signed. During the event, they announced Marissa had agreed to sign three items instead of one, so I bought this little art print by Letters & Lights and got it signed as well!
Other things bought, received
Just some clothing, Funko Pops and other items I got. The Grisha candle & Cinder art print were created by Letters and Lights, the small Cinder candle by Proud Book Junk. For the rest, you can go to my DiversityBear unboxing!
I’m trying to get all the MCU movies on DVD because it’s one of my favourite franchises and I want them to have all my money. I am also trying to buy as many Diego Luna movies on DVD as I can, so I bought the following DVDs: Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Ant-Man, Spider-man: Homecoming, Elysium, Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Logan, Flatliners.
Dutch Comic Con Haul
The main reason I didn’t go all-out with my book buying and other buying this month was because Comic-Con was happening at the end of the month. There, I did go all-out, and though I told myself I wouldn’t buy anything on Sunday, I couldn’t stop myself and ended up buying a couple more things on Sunday. But here is my entire Comic-Con haul!

In April, I am participating in a read-a-thon that takes the whole month. It’s organised by G from Book Roast, and you can watch her video here! Below, I’ve typed out the books I’m planning on reading, but I might still make a post about which book I’ve chosen for which subject!
