That Month Of Stories: November Wrap Up

I literally cannot think of a snazzy intro but November was a month and I read and watched shit in that month. Name a better, more sorted-out blogger; I’ll wait.

Copy-of-iuimovies

1. The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater

Reading The Raven Boys was a magical experience. The prose, the plot, the dialogue, the goddamn characters. Everything was so well crafted, I could cry. Also, I read this book DURING my exams (actually, those exams are still going on and I’m currently reading the second book in the series. I need an adult to supervise me).

4 Stars.

2. Throwing My Life Away by Liz Czuzak

This book was just the push I needed to post The Art Of Hoarding. I have never related more to a character about hoarding sentimental, useless crap than Mariska. Throughout the whole book, all I could think was , “Yes. Yes, exactly. Parents, you need to read this.” Another thing I loved about this book was- unlike a lot of famous YA Contemporaries- this book was just a perfect blend of perfect. Funny, cool characters- not the annoying, too angsty ones who get on my nerves, a really fresh story and bang on plot execution, amazing examples of strong friendship and an equal emphasis on family. This book might have been light and heart-warming but it had all of those important elements to it that makes it an all-round good book. Also, this book had a lot of nostalgia as all the characters were leaving for College soon and- as I’ve just graduated from my school of 12 years to Junior College- it hit home.

5 Stars.

3. The Collector (Dante Walker, #1) by Victoria Scott

Okay, I won’t lie, this book made me laugh at first. Not because it was funny or anything, but it was so goddamn cheesy. Or rather, I don’t know, it was like watching a Teen Sit-Com or a parody of a really edgy paranormal romance movie. Classic bad boy character, nerdy, unpopular love interest and BOOM- we ship it. Uh… No, thanks. It got way better by the end and it was a very fun book. Probably 14/15 yo Nimika would have enjoyed it slightly more.

3.5 Stars.

movies

I didn’t really watch a lot of good movies this month. Mostly just random Hallmark Christmas movies that YouTube kept suggesting me and I just went along with it.

 

Shows.jpg

I watched two shows this month and I can confirm that, at least in this, I made good life decisions.

1. Stranger Things

I mean, holy crap. This show, this goddamn show took over my life. I had actually seen Stranger Things before but wanted to rewatch it for Season 2 (which I’m watching right now). If you haven’t watched it yet, what are you even doing? 80’s vibes, interesting children, some creepy psycho Science experiments- this is all you need in your life.

2. Yuri On Ice

I am obsessed with Yuri On Ice. Oh, well. That’s literally me after I watch anything. I don’t watch anime a lot- this is literally just my second anime series after Nodame Cantabile and it took quite of bit of peer pressure/gentle probing from my friends to make me watch it but I am so glad I did. Yuri On Ice is everything you can imagine in a Sporty/Dramatic/Rom-Com-ish anime and even more. So much more.


Let me know what you guys read or watched this month. ❤

    1. Thank you for appreciating my clearly professional, not at all lazy intro!
      Ahhh yes, Season 1 was so great and I’m trying to get further into S2 but books and movies keep distracting me.
      Do yourself a favor and PLEASE read The Raven Boys. I want to learn to write like that woman, man. Also, you’ll get so invested in the characters… I mean, I’m just about to finish the last book and I’m missing them already. The book will tear your heart apart. Go read it. 😀
