Today is officially the first day of the year, and so it’s time for the last wrap-up post of the year. I was supposed to post this yesterday, on the 31st of December, but I already had two posts scheduled so I decided to do it today. December was the month of Christmas, presents, and of course trying to reach my reading challenge goal. Did I? Well, of course!
Of course it was Christmas this month, so I got a couple of really nice presents. I made a separate post for that, which you can view here.
Non-bookish stuff I bought/received:
Marshmallows, Chocolate balls, crisps, cookies and popcorn from my work (it was a whole box full of food, and most of it I left downstairs for my parents to use)
A patch with the dragon of Wales on it
Two posters, one from Allegiant and the other from the Heart of the Sea
A black hoodie
A Star Wars shirt, and a Harry Potter shirt (that I forgot to add to the picture)
A light blue pair of jeans for cosplay purposes
Agent May + 12th Doctor Funko Pops
Reindeer Christmas light
Bookmarks (2 from the Selection, 1 from a Dutch author which is also signed)
Star Wars candy with surprise (three stickers)
Star Wars & Marvel stickers
A Hunger Games tote bag (I also got a Divergent one but I forgot to add it)
Running shoes (for cosplay purposes)
So this month was a quiet month. I played a lot of Marvel Lego Super Heroes which right now is my favourite game to play ever. I made my reading challenge goal and even surpassed it by reading 130 books out of the 125 I challenged myself to. Went Christmas shopping a lot and bought people lots of cool presents (everyone was happy with what they’d gotten, which makes me happy too!)
In January I am – hopefully – going to start working on my cosplays for HobbitCon and Dutch Comic Con. Though I am still not sure what kind of patterns I want to use for both the costumes I am making (Silmarillion Nessa & Comic Scarlet Witch). So I guess that’s what I am going to figure out in January.
I don’t have anything else planned really, maybe because there’s a new Lego game coming out at the end of January, a Marvel Avengers lego game which has THE MAXIMOFFS IN IT AAAAAAAAAAAH!
