TV SERIES/MOVIE REVIEW
As much as I’d like to pick one over the other, I’m just going to put them both a co-winners. If you haven’t read them, fix it. Now.
Check out my review for The Blinding Knife and Dune for more on my thoughts!
LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK
I’ll gladly give this reward to this sequel. It is a bit unfortunate that they didn’t really take this comic book series too seriously since it has potential. I’ll probably read the final volume to come to wrap it up cleanly.
TOP TV SERIES/MOVIE
My excitement for this movie was unmatched since the day they had announced this stand-alone movie. After having seen it at the premieres, I was fully mesmerized by the experience and was really happy that such a movie was finally released for us to embrace in all of its glory.
I ended up writing what was probably the longest review I’ve ever shared on this blog. Check it out.
5 outta 5 stars.
The Grey Bastards was a fantastic debut novel and it was only a matter of time before I continued that trilogy with its latest sequel!
This was a hell of a month! Although I did see a lot of it coming, I didn’t realize how quickly time would fly every day. That being said, I was really looking for to the police crime prevention seminar that I went to attend around the middle of October outside my city and had a blast meeting up with all kinds of folks with whom I’ve either only heard their names through email communications or phone calls. It was also a wonderful event that highlighted the importance of crime prevention and all the different municipal police departments were truly prideful of what they’ve accomplished to this day. Sometimes, even if the world is against you, it’s nice to stick with your beliefs and do what you love.
That week was followed with the arrival of my girlfriend’s mother to our city from abroad which also coincided with my girlfriend’s birthday. I was really happy that we got to spend it together and had such a pleasant time with them, leaving me feeling completely blessed and grateful for their presence in my life.
While the month remained eventful from start to finish, my reading of novels took a hit but not in a negative way. In fact, I’ve only read amazing books throughout the month and was sort of forced out of love for the books I was reading to slow down… a lot. I mean, even if I wanted to, I couldn’t for the life of me speed up my reading as I just wanted to savour every page of the books I’m reading. In fact, I’m currently reading The Hobbit and you can’t imagine how slowly I’ve been taking it. Yet it’s such a small book!
Gosh, this is why I love reading. ❤
