And ANOTHER weekly wrap up! And a monthly wrap up! Is my blogging slump over? Am I going to rock combining blogging and school this term? WHO KNOWS BUT I’M EXCITED ANYWAY
Also I’m sorry that I once again have to freak out but… IT’S MAY ALREADY? Okay technically it’s still April but it feels like May since I’m wrapping April up. I’m kind of not ready for it to May already, because then soon it will be June and before you know it it’s June 6th and I’m turning 20
Peter Pan where you at mate
This month wasn’t very exciting when it came to books, though some good comic issues came out (I still need to catch up on some!). It wasn’t a bad month either though!
- Jughead volume 1
- America (2017) #2
- Brave Chef Brianna #2
- Goldie Vance #11
- The Stone House by A.K. Benedict ★★★
- Riverdale #0
- What She Does Next Will Astound You by James Goss ★★★
- The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum ★★★
Zodiac Starforce was SUCH a fun comic I need more. I think there’s going to be a second series this year? Fingers crossed! Hopefully I’ll review it soon.
I read the 2015 Archie comics last month, so I started Jughead as well. While I do really love his character, I found it hard to get through. Also it made me really, really despise Riverdale’s Jughead even more. Not only did they erase his asexuality (and it seems like he’s aromantic as well, nor does he like to be touched) they completely erased his fun personality?? I will eventually pick up volume 2 though, because as I said I really love Jughead (also was anyone else really disgusted when in this week’s episode he said that Archie’s songs made you want to slit your wrists like that’s not okay??? Don’t joke about that??)
I really liked the first issue of America, but the second one? Wow. It was a bit of a mess story wise. There was so much going on that I got really confused. Still love the character though, so I’m not giving up (besides it’s only the second issue)
And I really, really need to get to reviewing Brave Chef Brianna and Goldie Vance as these comics are AMAZING. I’ll get to reviewing the BBC Class books as soon as I’ve finished Joy Ride. My review for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz will be up this week! I think I scheduled it for tomorrow?
This school week was so much better than the last! I’m really looking forward to this term now. It also helped that I only had three days of school (though I didn’t go to one of them because I was exhausted and needed to sleep) since Thursday was Kingsday and we had Friday of as well. This gave me plenty of time to do school work and blog – I scheduled three posts for this week again!
I missed Doctor Who yesterday (I’m already caught up though so here’s my weekly reminder that I love Bill Potts. Also the Doctor punched a racist bigot – iconic) because I finally went to see Hidden Figures! It was my most anticipated movie of the year, so I’m not sure why it took me this long. It was INCREDIBLE though. It exceeded my expectations, and my expectations were really high already. I need to see it again. It’s so powerful and just
- I recapped what I’d been up to since my last wrap up
- I wrapped up February and March
- And I wrapped up some weeks: #45 | #46
- I talked about the tv shows I’m currently watching
- And wrote a separate post on why you should watch One Day At a Time
- I did some tags: The Get To Know Me Tag | The Goodreads Book Tag
- I wrote some mini reviews for Siege and Storm, Beautiful Broken Things, Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor, Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit, Princess Princess Ever After, Lies We Tell Ourselves and The Mysterious Affair at Styles
- And I reviewed Rock and Riot (it’s like Grease but queer!!!)
- I talked about Dutch children’s books I grew up with and now really want to reread some of them (but I probably won’t because I’m scared they’ll either be bad or problematic – or worse both)
- Lastly I wrote a Discussing Hufflepuff, wondering if I’m overreacting when it comes to sexist, racist, homophobic etc. comments and while I really wish none of us felt this way, I’m also glad that I’m not alone in this, because it makes me feel less – well, alone
I had no idea I posted this much this month?! I really hope I’ll be able to keep this up, because boy did I miss this.
- Sara talks about the lack of female friendship in YA
- CW shares some super helpful prompts for writing positive book reviews
- May talks about winning Camp NaNo and shares some snippets (I’m especially in love with her poetry)
- Victoria talks about how she makes her Youtube videos (and reminds me that I’m super behind on watching her videos eek)
- Vicky talks about Unbroken, a ‘YA disability must read’
- Chiara talks about two not-so-great things in Noteworthy by Riley Redgate
- Krysti talks about prepping for Yallwest
- Cait talks about ten things that book bloggers should not feel guilty about
And once again that’s a wrap! How has your week been? Have you seen Hidden Figures? What did you think of it? Are you enjoying Doctor Who season 10 so far? What have you been reading? Tell me all about it in the comments!
