First off, I want to mention this book, A monster calls by Patrick Ness.
I also watched The big short and The fifth wave this week. (I read this one too). All of which you can find reviews of on my blog. Aren’t you a lucky, Cupcake?!
I’m also taking part in the Opinion battles you can find out more about it here. Tomorrow will be my first entry into the battles.
I have to select which film I consider to be the best picture winner. I was torn between two. One was Forrest Gump, but to find out my other choice you’ll have to check out moviereview101.com tomorrow or just follow Darren’s awesome blog!
Also, tomorrow happens, happens to be my birthday. Just sayin’. Not trying to coerce you into voting for my choice AT ALL.
Edit: For anyone who’s curious, I’m going to be 24. I look about sixteen as I’m one those people who has a baby face. I love when I’m ID’d and take great delight in informing them how old I actually am. Not that I get ID’d often because I don’t buy things that have an age restriction.
I’ll be reviewing Dirty Grandpa tomorrow. I’ve heard it’s pretty funny so I’m looking forward to it!
Other films I’ll be reviewing this week are Ride along 2, but first I need to watch Ride along! And some other films.
I want to watch Captain America: Winter soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Amazing Spiderman 2 because apparently the unofficial superhero thing we have going on is still going strong.
Some books I’m hoping to read in the next week or so is…
Pride and Prejudice and zombies by Seth Smith Grahame . The film’s being release early February so I want to have finished before then. I saw a trailer in the film and it looked pretty badass.
Another I’m looking forward to reading is The girl on the train by Paula Hawkins. I know for a fact my Dad’s bought me this for my birthday, because he’s awful at keeping secrets. It’s a running joke nowadays. I think I’d have been disappointed if he hadn’t dropped himself in it.
I’m also looking forward to All the birds in the sky by Jane Charlie Anders. A post apocalyptic novel that’ll be released on the 26th January. \o/
Also, mybookjacket @ books and strips and I have are planning to do a kind of book club together. We both have, and want to read, Battle royale by Koushun Takami.
We haven’t settled on when, but we’re thinking of reading a chapter a week and then starting a discussion on twitter or something.
If you’re interested you can leave a comment, send a pm on twitter or email for more details. (Not that there are many at the moment.)
What books and/or films have you been reading and/or watching? Did you like them? Hate them?
