TV SERIES/MOVIE REVIEWS.
Creator David Mack has some of the best artwork in the business and I can’t wait to dive into the third omnibus to see what else he was able to learn and improve on over the years!
LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK.
Let’s just say that my excitement for this one progressively died as I flipped through the pages. The artwork just couldn’t save it either.
A visceral and gut-wrenching French dramatization by director Denis Villeneuve of the 1989 Polytechnique massacre (located at the University I’ve been attending for the past years) masterfully captured in a black-and-white rendering with a stellar cast performance showcasing both our vulnerability and our helplessness as mere spectators of the horrors of a hopeless killer indoctrinated by an anti-feminist agenda.
5 stars outta 5.
I had a blast with the first book and I’ve only been hearing phenomenal things about this sequel while I was reading it myself. I doubt M.R. Carey could’ve disappointed me with this one any way.
I should have a review with my thoughts on this one soon.
Here goes another month of 2020! I don’t even know how it’s possible. Thinking back at these past weeks, I feel like I haven’t done much but a lot at the same time. One cool surprise was that I got confirmation of what we shall call a job “promotion” that should shake things up for upcoming months until 2021. I’ve been waiting for this for a while now and I’m glad that it’s happening. The paperwork is currently being completed and hopefully they get that done sooner rather than later.
This month also saw me finally succumb to the idea of indulging ebooks as part of my life going forward. A couple of months ago, I discovered how accessible digital comic books were and how it allowed me access to even more reading material than ever with the convenience of it all within the palms of my hands, especially for books that I know I wouldn’t have paid for unless heavily discounted in the far future! I won’t fall for the trap that is NetGalley for the time being, as I already have so many amazing physical books to check out, but I’m definitely going to be more accepting of the idea of reading digital books moving forward. Don’t be surprised if you see me mix things up on my blog with reviews of digital books! I wonder how long it’ll take before I become like some of you guys, completely transformed into a 100% digital reader! 😮
To conclude this month, I was invited to host a giveaway on my Instagram account by the wonderful people at Simon and Schuster Canada! It is exclusive to Canadian residents, so if that’s you, go check it out for a chance to win Fredrick Backman’s latest novel Anxious People!
