The first thing I wish to say is an apology. I missed a couple of posts last week and I’m sorry for that. I went from being really organised to being all over the place and didn’t seem to have time to do anything, let alone get some posts scheduled. I’m trying to get myself prepared now to try and keep on top of things. There was no reason; I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind.
So, March already. I’m hoping to spend some money on the blog soon with a new theme, domain etc. To be totally honest, I have no idea where to start. My first focus is get posts organised, then I’ll sort out how it will all look.
Without any further ado, what’s on the agenda for this month?
Books: This month seems to be the finishing of trilogies. I’m hoping to get both Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink and Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie finished. That will bring to a close two of the trilogies that I’ve been reading since the beginning of the year. Hopefully neither will disappoint and bring everything to a satisfying ending.
This month’s bookbear tour is The Last Roadshow by John Czarnota. I literally have no idea what this book is about, so it will be interesting to give it a go.
The book I’m most excited for, however, is The Shard of Heaven by Michael Livingston. It’s set in the Roman era and will be the first of that genre that I’ve read that isn’t by Ben Kane. I’m interested to see if I just like Kane’s writing or whether it’s the genre as a whole.
Films: I’ve really been struggling lately to figure out what I want to watch. I’m still hoping to finish Orphan Black and get a review done for that even though I missed the slot. If I miss it again, I’m also hoping to finally get around to watching Quirke, so one or the other will have a review going up. I’ve heard great things about Jupiter Ascending so am eager to give that one ago.
I also want to watch The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I’ve wanted to see that one for a long time, so I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
Last month, I re-watched Despicable Me and enjoyed it far more than I remembered. On that note, I’m going to give the Minion film a go and see if it lives up to expectations. I’m feeling quite open-minded about it and hoping for an evening of entertainment if nothing else.
There we have it, my plan for the month. Lovefilm are switching to sending two discs at a time. As I haven’t been able to keep on top lately because of the late night with work, I’m looking forward to actually catching up a bit. Two discs for a couple of weeks could making reviewing a lot easier!
What does everyone else have planned for March?
