May In Hindsight: Bookish Conquests and Other Things
I’m happy to introduce another segment on my blog! I think I’m finally getting to the point where I’m happy with the content I’m creating on here, and it really feels great.
So for this segment, I’ll be looking back over my experiences from the past month with books, tv, movies, etc as well as some short tidbits about goings on with my personal life.
Alright, so let’s get this thing started!
May has been a huge month for me. I had a birthday, I moved, and I adjusted to things here on WordPress as I’m still something of a noob. Overall, I’m really glad to be here and have enjoyed interacting with like-minded folks. Looking forward to the future!
I tend to not like change, so this month I read a bit more than usual to escape reality. I ended up reading a total of 6 books.
Honorable mention goes to all three of the Animorph books I read. They were instant faves, but my absolute favorite was my read of Dreadnought. This intriguing read hooked me from the start, and I’ve been hooked on the author’s work since! Talk about talent!
For my full review of this month’s reads, check them out on GoodReads.
This month was also pretty great for TV.
There were a couple of great series I got to enjoy on Netflix, but the real diamond was Chambers.
This series had it all, mystery, drama, chills, but most of all there’s a dark undercurrent that I am all about! I won’t tell you the ending, but I am completely stoked about the second season and what all that could entail.
You can find my full review of Chambers here.
All right, so that was May for me. What about you? Did you read or see something in my conquests? Do you have any recommendations for books, tv, or movies? As always, feel free to comment below!
Happy Reading and Watching, everyone!
I have to admit Animorphs is one of those series I have always heard of, but never actually got into. A lot of people say it’s great, though.
I find television shows difficult to get into in general because by the time they get attention, I have a lot of catching up to do. Not only that, but if the ending turns out to be garbage, I feel like I wasted my time. Indeed one of my scoring rules is that a work can’t get more than five points (out of ten) if it has a terrible ending. That said, I do like what Netflix has been doing, giving us interesting miniseries such as Stranger Things that have the best of both worlds, being more fleshed out than a film while being easy to catch up on due to the small number of episodes.
No worries. I read some of Animorphs when I was a little kid, so for me it’s very nostalgic. It’s also expertly written if you ask me.
Yeah, I tend to be a little leery of TV shows also. You really don’t know what you’re getting into, and if the pilot is bad, you just wasted an hour of your time.
Oh my gosh, I LOVE Stranger Things! I’m having a watch party for its release on July 4th. Counting the days on that one.
So that’s when it’s set to debut. I’ll look forward to it.
Haha, yep! I am a little obsessed with the series, so I’ve been impatiently Googling “Stranger Things Season 3” since the end of season 2.
I’ve heard incredible things about Dreadnought. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I just started Chambers and am really enjoying it so far. I hope you have a wonderful June!
Thanks! Happy June to you as well! There’s some good stuff in the works for sure!
