The Diabolic by S.J. KincaidThe Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid: “A Diabolic is ruthless. A Diabolic is powerful. A Diabolic has a single task: Kill in order to protect the person you’ve been created for.” HOW GOOD DOES THAT SOUND? I’M SOLD.

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Jones : BECAUSE. THAT. FRKN. MOVIE. ❤ Now I remembered it has a book 😂

The Boat by Nam Le :Its good to see Vietnamese authors more and more out there talking about their refugees experience and struggles in life. I will always encourage the history of my people 🙂

Criminal Vol. 1 : Because I tend to look at Lashaans Want To Read feed and copy him TEEHEE)

The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson : “More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings.” Don’t know why but it sounds so interesting!

Magician: Apprentice -> A classic in high fantasy that needs to be read! I am feeling like jumping into that genre right now too. Hmm… 😀

Do Not Say We Have Nothing -> A nominee for the Man Booker Prize and the winner of the Scotiabank Giller Prize! Story sounds compelling and would love to give it a shot! 😀

Underworld -> A titanesque novel that has done its job in portraying the American culture and the Cold War with finesse.

Criminal (Volume 1) -> A comic book story of a special criminal by Ed Brubaker. Count me in.

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay -> I’ve always wanted to read a book by Michael Chabon. Thought it would appropriate to start with one his greatest works.

Doctor Strange : Lashaan : If you haven’t seen it yet, then you’re missing out on a hell of a visual experience! Check out my review to learn more about my thoughts on this movie! 🙂

Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them : Trang: AHHHH MY GODDD ❤

The Arrival : Trang: A MUST. GO WATCH IT Y’ALL.

Silence : Lashaan : Huge Scorsese fan. I will definitely check this one out, and maybe even read the book before the movie comes out. Really curious about this Oscar bait movie.

Cars 3 : Lashaan : I’m not some die-hard fan of the Cars series, but watching this trailer reminded me of Iron Man 3 and the dark tone that it tried to bring to the big screen. We all know how that movie turned out. 😛

    Seems like you both had a great month! Here’s hoping December is just as amazing!
    Oh I love the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts, I finished reading it today and it just made me love the film even more. Also the Doctor Strange movie is definitely an amazing cinematic experience, so much more so than I ever thought it would be! 😀
    Great recap.

    Just came across this blog! I have been planning to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but somehow life seems to interfere 😀 . Do Not Say We Have Nothing is on my TBR list too. Too many bookish things to do! Happy Reading!

    Lol at Trang’s gif for her self discovery.
    I still need to see Fantastic Beasts and watch and read Howl’s Moving Castle. That book has been on my radar for a while now.
    Lashaan, that Magician: Apprentice book has been popping up in my Goodreads recommendations frequently lately (I guess because of the Robin Hobb books I’ve been reading) but I wasn’t sure about it at first. I might add it to my TBR. I’m intrigued.
    AND I saw Dr. Strange in friggin 3D and it blew my mind! Well, the graphics did. I wasn’t impressed by the plot. But those graphics made me feel as if I was trapped in MC Escher’s mind. Loved it!

      I’ve been seeing it in my feed as well! And then in the blogosphere. I can’t seem to stop finding new high fantasy books that need to be read, every day.. I must be cursed..

      Exactly what I thought about Doctor Strange and said in my review of it! It was definitely an entertaining movie, and a great addition to the MCU. 😛

        You’re seeing signs pointing you to what you should indulge in next. Lol!
        It is a good addition. And I saw Fantastic Beasts this weekend too. I think it was okay but I wasn’t too impressed by the story. I find myself attending movies more for the graphics than the story, unless it’s drama-heavy.

    I absolutely loved the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay – one of my favourite ever books (I even used to keep a stack under my bed to give to people as presents at short notice for Birthdays I’d forgotten about and stuff like that!) – my short-ish review of it is here: https://bakingthadbooks.wordpress.com/2016/10/16/the-amazing-adventures-of-kavalier-and-clay-by-michael-chabon/

    Let me know how you get on with it.
