Hello ladies & gentlemen,
Who doesn’t love the anticipation of new releases and things that they plan on doing? Every month there seems to be something new and exciting ready to hit the market for our consumption.
Being ready to embrace them with open arms is all we can really do.
To showcase this, I’ll be sharing my top 3 for each category of things that I look forward to this month right here, right now!
TO BE READ.
I’m not going to change or plan much for this month just so I can finally get around to what I had initially planned for myself in the previous month. Let’s get things done!
I’m going to keep this one too on my priority reading list this month so it doesn’t get pushed back unnecessarily.
I’m also going to try and complete this trilogy and finally see how Koli’s adventure comes to an end!
It has been a while since I read something by Jeff Vandermeer and it’s nice to know that he’s got a new novel coming out this month.
I haven’t read any of the Wayfarers books but here’s the fourth installment coming out for fans to indulge!
It’s time for our favourite Murderbot to return for another adventure! 😀
COMIC BOOK RELEASES.
Tom Taylor and Andy Kubert teaming up?! Batman going to Europe for a deadly and dangerous investigation?! New villains?! New allies?! I’m alllllllll in!
An epic team Chip Zdarsky, Pasqual Ferry and Matt Hollingsworth working on this what-if story where Peter Parker becomes Venom. Now that’s an interesting horror story for you!
While Alex Ross is not on this project, Kurt Busiek is, and one can only get excited for these new stories featuring various superheroes!
TV SHOW RELEASES.
While I doubt I’ll follow this series, I am curious to find out how the Six of Crows cast gets incorporated into this series, considering that Six of Crows is also the only book of the Grishaverse that I have read and loved.
I actually stopped this series after season 1 when I realized the show covered the whole book. I have no idea if the subsequent seasons are worth checking out considering that they aren’t based on the book anymore… Maybe someday I’ll find time to catch up to all these seasons!
An anime to portray the legendary Yasuke, the first Black samurai. This really does look good. I heard that Chadwick Boseman was supposed to do a live-action movie for this guy too…
The latest attempt to bring Mortal Kombat to the bring screen is here and it looks decent but clearly has it fair share of flaws.
You already know that I’m all for any DC animated movie. Here’s the latest movie!
I heard that it wasn’t following the source material (book) at all but, hey, Michael B. Jordan going wild? Looks like a fun ride no matter what!
The last two months were hectic in so many ways but I’ve learned to appreciate them for what they were. They mostly served as a “professional” wake-up call and allowed me to make some big moves career-wise that will likely stick with me for the upcoming years. While the double employment situation has held me back enormously in terms of reading and blogging as much as I usually do, I was still able to stay active as much as much as the average blogger, which ultimately allowed me to be up to date in my blogging plans.
While I want to go into April thinking that the situation won’t change much, I really want to make a sweet return to form this month. I theoretically shouldn’t be hindered in my plans as dramatically as they were last month and I want to get back to my old habits while infusing it all with new ones that I’ve been able to develop in the last two months.
As I’ve previously mentioned, it’s the end of the semester for my students, so what will likely mostly take most of my time is the correction of their final assignments but luckily that will mostly be towards the end of the month. Beyond that, work will continue to drain me five times a week and hopefully I’ll continue to meet my deadlines without any issues throughout the month. So far, I’ve been having a blast with the new project and I look forward to seeing how the body-worn camera pilot project for police officers is going to go.
With all that being said, I really look forward to getting my groove back. I mostly look forward to catching up with everything and to sharing a bunch of things with y’all too!
Thank you all for checking out my monthly anticipation post!
Now tell me what you’re looking forward to this month! Any new releases? Anything exciting you plan on doing?
