Black Panther (2018): While it was predictable, it took itself much more seriously than the previous Marvel movie we got. February was a good superhero month. 😁

Fargo (2014—): Created and written by Noah Hawley, the same dude who gave us Legion, the X-Men TV series, Fargo is a comedy-crime drama with brilliant direction. Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman are such memorable characters in this. Must-see.

CURRENTLY READING

I DIDN’T BLOG AS MUCH THIS MONTH T_T And that reason alone made it the worst month in 2 years so far!! I’m going to get back to blogging and answering comments more regularly this week (Spring Break yay)! On the other hand, I had the loveliest Valentine’s day among my coworkers 😀 A lot of surprises on my desk ahha! That was real sweet ❤ IMG_5580

We all know February is the shortest month of the year, but damn, it sure did keep me busy. With loads of deadlines and things to submit early in the month, I knew it was going to be tough to find free time. I didn’t however want to give up on reading or blogging though. They are far too important for me to give up hahah The weather has been acting weird nowadays when its supposed to be snowy and cold around this time we’re here with warmer weathers. Makes me wonder if its almost time to return on the court and ball again! I’m hoping that March will prove to be much more calmer, but I know shit is only going to get tougher as my thesis deadline approaches.. May the books I’ll be reading transport me to far, far lands filled with mystical and beautiful creatures.

  • Feb was the worst for me as compared to past months. I was in slump almost whole of the month 😭 I was not motivated to read much 😒 Only read 3 books and the 3rd itself I finished just yesterday.
    I am glad you read so many good books. Oh I am going to read The Bear and the Nightingale this month.. yea FINALLY 😂
    Hell yes for Black Panther. I watched it this weekend and it was amazing ❤️
    I hope you have a lovely March as well 😊

    • Black Panther is on EVERYONE’S radar!! It has a timely political agenda conveyed through a superhero movie, and its definitely worth checking out! Hope you enjoy it, Tammy! 😀

  • February certainly did fly by and for some reason I had just so many review books. I’m being more careful from now on – it was too much and I couldn’t fit them all in.
    Good to see you enjoyed Kings of the Wyld. I’m hoping to read that one soon, particularly as the second book is on the horizon.
    Hope you enjoy The Bear and the Nightingale – I’m loving that series.

    • I had the same issue at some point in December too! No way am I going to relive that anymore hahah Definitely going to be more careful with any of my book requests. You have to check out Kings of the Wyld soon! It is absolutely brilliant! Thanks for dropping by Lynn! 😀

  • I’m with you on the whole weird weather thing. 2-3 weeks ago we were dealing with a snowstorm and last week it was t-shirt weather. It has gotten warm enough that I’ve done my Spring ritual and shaved my head and beard, so now it’s just the goatee.
    Of course, now that I’ve done that, watch. We’ll probably get like 3ft of snow or something 😀

  • Great post, and great recap as well. I hope you manage to get back into blogging again soon Trang, and Lashaan I get what you mean about February keeping you busy. It’s the shortest month of the year but I can’t believe how much I had to get through.
    I really need to see Black Panther, I’ve heard so many amazing things about it and I just know I’ll love it as well. 🙂
    I hope you both have a brilliant March, it seems like already you have some good books to get through. I read The Bear and the Nightingale recently myself and it was amazing. 😀
