I failed to pick 5 this month, but these two are my favourite discoveries ! One recommended by Lashaan, because I loved Rupi Kaur’s debut poetry collection Milk and Honey and two, villains always fascinated me and a lot of bloggers have recommended this book 🙂
Strangers on a Train – Book that inspired one of Alfred Hitchcock’s famous movie. I couldn’t resist and thought I should quickly check it out and finally check something off my must-watch movie list.
Krampus: The Yule Lord – I actually have another book by this author on my TBR since my days of blogging, called The Child Thief, but Trang recently recommended this and I just had to add it too. 😀
Blackwing – If you haven’t heard about this book, you must’ve been living under a rock! Liz and The Orangutan Librarian both wrote absolutely stellar reviews for this book and made anyone who didn’t have it on their TBR already feel crazy levels of shame. Check out their reviews by clicking on their names. 😀
Dead Poets Society – This classic that inspired the classic movie simply screams classic. 😀 I’m a sucker for classics, so don’t be surprise about that hihih
Trang: Got the chance to see Atomic Blonde, which is like a female version of John Wick and I loved it 😀
Lashaan: Sequel to Son of Batman, Batman vs. Robin explores the relationship between Damian and Bruce and brings the Court of Owls to animated DC Universe for the first time. This movie was so brutal and had some non-PG moments that truly shocked me, in a great way. Batman: Bad Blood is the recent sequel to Batman vs. Robin; it has nothing to do with Taylor Swift’s song. 😉 Great introduction to Batwoman and a fun movie overall. DC never fails their animated movies. That’s for sure. I also completed the recent season (5th) of Orange is the New Black. Don’t ask me why I’m even watching this. When the first season came out, I was intrigued by the whole female prison and the exploration of the institution. I simply have a hard time just forgetting about it and feeling like I wasted my time (last couple seasons haven’t been so great. But.. Diane Guerrero though. ❤ You’re probably not surprised that I also watched Spider-Man: Homecoming. Excellent movie. Check out my review for more on my thoughts! Finally, my final mention has to go to Okja. This was simply one of the strangest, silliest yet beautiful movie to have been released by Netflix. Just expect to stay away from bacon after this movie. The only other person who can attest to this movie’s weirdness is Kat. She’ll vouch for me. 😀
If you’ve seen any of these, feel free to mention it in the comment section. I’d love to fanboy/hate with y’all! 😉
Trang: My favourite book as a movie!! AHHH and directed by Steven Spielberg 😀
Lashaan: Okay. There’s actually a lot of amazing trailers that were released this month, but when this teaser came out, I was just reminded of its quality and couldn’t wait for it to release!
