April is over, and this was probably one of the worst reading months for me. I just didn’t feel like reading AT ALL and I spend my time watching a lot of movies and TV shows. So yeah I still did something productive, but I’m still a bit disappointed in myself that I didn’t read that much. Oh well, here’s the blog stats for April 2015!
I bought both HP DVD’s and the Iron Man DVD on the Kingsday market. The GotG DVD I bought before the Avengers marathon because it was discounted (and I love discounts). I bought the first three books from Book depository because I wanted to, and the Tolkien book I bought for TWO EUROS at the Kingsday market. I love Kingsday markets.
I received an email from the publisher (I think?) asking if I wanted to read this book because I loved Doctor Who. I was curious because it’s a sci-fi story and said yes. I have yet to read it, but I think I’ll put it on my list of books to read in may!
Books read this month: 3 books, 1 novella = 4 books in total. Total books read so far this year: 37 out of 140 books.
Other things I bought:
Red skirt with pockets (P O C K E T S !!!!!)
Grey and white tank tops
Red leather jacket (for cosplay purposes)
Thor Funko Pop (it’s starting to become an addiction, oops)
Blue digital watch
Brown leather jacket (also cosplay stuff)
Insurgent IMAX poster (which I got from my friend :3)
Age of Ultron IMAX poster (cosplay competition price eyyyy)
Thor cap (also from my friend)
Guardians of the Galaxy IMAX poster (^same)
Hogwarts shorts (from my sister :3)
Zelda keychain (which I found)
Things I’ve done this month:
H O B B I T C O N – Where I saw all my friends again, met some new friends, met the actors again, and most important of all MET LUKE FREAKIN’ EVANS OH YESSSSSSS! I am still planning on making some posts about HobbitCon, but I’ll probably do that next month!
Went to the Avengers marathon – Wasn’t too sure if I wanted to go because I didn’t love the first movie, but I’m really happy I did go because I ended up LOVING the second one. I also got a poster (the Age of Ultron one in the picture of received things) because I dressed up as Scarlet Witch.
Went to the Elf Fantasy Fair – This year we decided to go both days, and I loved it even though it was rainy and cold and bleh. On the first day I dressed up as Scarlet Witch again, and I was actually planning on wearing Castiel the next day – but then a friend of mine said she was going as Quicksilver (the X-men version though not the AOU one) the second day, so I decided to go as Scarlet Witch again (seeing as her and Quicksilver are twins). On the second day I had a picture taken of me on the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones!
Bought some nice stuff at the Kingsday market – We were actually planning on having a barbecue with some friends, but a lot of weather people predicted rain and winds and stuff so we decided to do the bbq in the summer. I did go to the local market and bought three DVD’s, a book and a jacket for less than 10 euros in total!
Watched a lot of movies – Because Age of Ultron was coming out, I decided to watch all the Marvel movies before this one. I finally watched the Iron Man movies, and fell in love, and rewatched the others (Guardians, Captain America, Thor, etc etc). I now only need to rewatch The Winter Soldier and The Incredible Hulk, and then I’m done and ready for the next Marvel movie!
Celebrate my birthday – I am turning 23 on the 18th of May, and I will celebrate it the Saturday before (16th). I am not sure what to ask of people, so I’ll probably just go for money, with which I could buy stuff (books, funko pops, dvd’s oops).
Finally catch up with Supernatural – I have been watching some episodes of Season 9 this month, but I will try and finish it all this month and then FINALLY start with the tenth season.
Read some more books than I did this month – I really don’t like the fact that I didn’t read that much books this month, so I am going to try to read at least 7 books next month. I will write down some titles I want to try out, and some others that I can pick up if those first titles turn out to be not my cup of tea.
Buy the Ultimate Book Bloggers Plugin – I have been eye-ing that plugin ever since I found out about it, and I think next month I am finally going to buy it, as soon as I get my salary. I wanted to wait with it because I was going to move to a new domain, but now that I have moved, I can finally purchase this beauty!
Again, I haven’t read the book that I got from my bookjar, because this was just a terrible month. I will add this month’s book to my normal to-read list, and will get another book from the bookjar. May’s bookjar book will be:
