This month I had a Netgalley reading month. I’ve already made a post about it, where I talk about how I didn’t really read that many books from Netgalley this month, but I did read five which I think is an accomplishment! Other than that I read a couple of graphic novels, and I watched some movies! Let’s take a look at the bookish stats of August 2015!
Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson – I heard a lot of things about this comic before I got into reading them, and so when I finally started reading comics I decided to buy the first volume of Ms. Marvel. And I fell in love! I honestly love Kamala so much and I really can’t wait to get my hands on the second and third volumes!
The Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning by Chris Colfer – I finally ordered this book, yay! Mainly because it takes about a year for the paperback to come out after the hardback is released, but even so it took me a bit longer to purchase it. I can’t wait to get started in it, because I honestly really enjoy these books!
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl DVD – My friend and I went to a secondhand shop, where we saw a lot of DVD’s we liked. I decided to get the first Pirates movie, because I honestly love these movies so much, and come on it was only a euro! For the two-disk version, that is very very cheap! Yay!
Hulk DVD – Last month my friend and I decided to watch the Incredible Hulk, but we stopped watching after half an hour of not even watching the movie at all. It wasn’t the version I knew, which turned out to be Hulk. So when we were at that second-hand shop, and I saw this DVD for a euro, I decided to buy it. Even though the box was broken and the second disk (with the extra’s) was missing, oh well..
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins– After reading Anna and the French Kiss, I was kind of hooked and I wanted to read the other two books in this companion series too. When Lola arrived, I saw that it was a lot taller than Anna which is such a shame, but hey it’s still a book that can be read!
Kick-Ass DVD -My dad, sister and I went to Makro this month, which is like a bulk-supermarket kind of store. You can buy – for example – popcorn in a large bucket or a box with eighteen bags of it. It’s handy for companies or people like us who eat a lot of popcorn, hahaha! But they also have a lot of other stuff, including DVD’s. I saw this Kick-Ass DVD for only €3,50; I’d been wanting to watch this movie ever since I found out both Quicksilvers (Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Evan Peters) were in it. So I bought it (or well my dad did). I’ve watched the movie already and it’s not a masterpiece, but I enjoyed it!
X-Men: Days of Future Past DVD – And then, also at the Makro, I saw this X-Men dvd for a lot less than what they ask for it in normal shops, so I decided to bring it with me. I love the X-Men movies, and I really want them on DVD so I was super happy to find this one there, yay!
Gilded by Christina Farley – I saw the third book as a Read Now on Goodreads and decided to see if the first and second were on there as well. They were, but as request books. So I requested Gilded, the first book in the series, and got accepted! I’ve just started reading it, and so far it sounds promising!
