The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury A nameless narrator who meets the Illustrated Man–a wanderer whose entire body is a living canvas of exotic tattoos. What’s even more remarkable, and increasingly disturbing, is that the illustrations are themselves magically alive, and each proceeds to unfold its own story
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker is unforgettable story where two unlikely friends whose tenuous attachment challenges their opposing natures. Fantasy, fun and fairtytale romance !
Old Man’s War by John Scalzi Science fiction classic. Where army doesn’t want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living.
The Girl With All The Gifts: A RE-Discovery! Since the movie is coming out pretty soon!!
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood: Snowman, known as Jimmy before mankind was overwhelmed by a plague, is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human, and mourning the loss of his best friend, Crake, and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved
A Slight Trick of the Mind -> I actually found out that Mr. Holmes (that movie with Ian McKellan as an old Sherlock Holmes) was actually based on this book! You know me and Sherlock though. Got to check it out!
Black Hole -> This often pops up as a classic in comic books and it actually seems pretty scary!
The Prophet -> I feel like it’s time that I start diving into some of those classic poem collections. I used to dislike them since high school, but I feel like I hadn’t gained enough experience or knowledge to truly appreciate this genre. I now believe I can learn a lot from them at this time in my life!
Assassin’s Apprentice -> Yep. 2017 will definitely be the year I finally try a Robin Hobb book. I hope so anyways. Her trilogies all seem like SO MUCH FUN!
John Dies at the End -> I’ve seen this one pop up here and then in my feed and it really intrigues me! The humor in this sounds like my cup of tea.
Lashaan: With the conclusion of my semester around the end of the 1st week of December, I was immediately launched on a quest to fill my free time with a BUNCH of things that I couldn’t indulge as much during the stressful times. One of them is being able to watch movies!!!!! I’ve never felt sooooo happy about finally being able to enjoy movies without having that project-to-do hanging over my head. During the month, I’ve watched WAYYYY too many movies to even attempt to make a dreadful list for you guys, so here’s some of the most amazing movies I’ve gotten the chance to enjoy during December! Oh, and of course, there’s The Jungle Book (2016) that I reviewed on the blog as well!

THE ARRIVAL : FCKN AMAAZING OKAY ❤
Assasin’s Creed: Love the incorporation of violence theories part but not so much with the sect and religion side..
The Passengers: VERY INTERESTING movie! It has a lot of messages between the lines, how a man survives alone in space with all the ressources for him, the decisions he’d make,etc.
Trang: MY TOP DISCOVERY OF THE YEAR. THIS SHOW IS GOLLLDD.
Lashaan: OH MY GOD!!!! THE WAIT IS OVER!!!! IT’S SO CLOSE, I CAN ALMOST GRAB IT WITH MY HANDS!!!! IT’S TIME PEOPLE, IT’S TIME!!!!!!!
