2017 is already here but I have been really lazy in the last couple of months and that’s why my November reading wrap up is still missing. I hope I can remember everything. 😀 (Oh and this reading wrap up is a blog post because I accidentally deleted the video files. oopsy-daisy.)
I was beyond excited for the new Gilmore Girls series produced by Netflix since it was announced. And I know, I was not supposed to get my hopes up because it has been 8 years and I am older and they are older but come on, of course I did.
And I was – though not entirely but massively – disappointed. I like Netflix for what it originally was: an online subscription service to watch movies and series. And I liked the new ways it was developing by making their own series and movies. But I will never, ever forgive them for ruining one the main things I was excited for in 2016.
Newt Scamander arrives in New York City at the beginning of the 20th century with a bag full of magical creatures. But the situation there is more tense than ever. The attacks of monster threaten to reveal the magical world to muggles. Can Newt’s knowledge help or will he be the cause of a war?
At the end of october we visited a friend in Manchester. Although my vlogging skills are not really developed yet, I captured some scenes from our weekend getaway. But of course we discovered lots of other nice spots in the city which I have to share with you.
They came as settlers to this planet but their new life turned out to be more hell than heaven. The indigenous population was defeated in a bloody war and all women died from a sickness that made men’s thoughts open to one another. Todd grew up in this world and can’t wait for his birthday and to finally become a real man and part of his village Prentisstown. But when he finds a place of silence in the swamp, his life is torn apart.
Working in a book shop is a really bad idea if you actually want to not buy books until the end of the year. I tried to be reasonable and only used the 3 for 2 discount at Blackwell in September. But apart from this little splurge, several other books have found their way onto my book shelves somehow. I feel very bad for having aquired so many books again (!) in the last months. The only hope I have is that I still have to read 19 books until the end of the year to surpass my final book count from 2015 and I want to pick them mainly from my tbr instead of going to the library. But enough with the self-loathing, here is my latest book haul.
