I went to…

No book signings this month. Sigh. It’s for the best, I guess. Since the holidays just ended and most people just want to relax and take it slow after the holiday rush. Plus there’s also work.

I did go to Cranium with 2 of my friends.

It’s this cool cafe with lots of board and card games  for you to choose from.

Their food’s great too! Most of them are snacks, which is perfect when you’re playing.

Cranium is located at  D’ University Place Bldg, Leon Guinto St., Taft, Manila (in between Dagonoy St. and Estrada St.), Philippines. Click here for more info.

[new!] Films/Television:

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them (2016) / re-watch: 5

Ok as much as this movie is amazing, my rating is totally biased for this one because I love the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Storks (2016): 4 12

This is such a feel-good film filled with adorable babies, catchy songs, ANDY SAMBERG, and a very heartwarming ending.

Captain America: Civil War (2016) / re-watch: 3 12

The film was cool and the fact that a lot of Marvel characters were in it made it even better. But then I asked my Mom what she thought of it and she said that it was a good film but it’s not really for children because the plot was dark. Which is actually true, seeing your favorite heroes try to kill each other isn’t really a great thing to witness… even on the big screen. I don’t recommend this film to kids at all.

Ant Man (2016): 4 12

I did not expect to be affected by an ant dying.

To be fair, it only affected me for a minute. But still. I completely underestimated this film.

Don’t Breathe (2016): 3 12

This film was  downright suspenseful and thrilling. But the way some scenes were played out still made me ask a lot of questions.

The Accountant (2016): 4

Ben Affleck did a great job. The ending was bittersweet. And I should probably learn martial arts when I get the chance because it will REALLY come in handy one day.

Bonus:

I won six ARCs, SIX, from Henry Holt Books and a copy of Carve the Mark from Fullybooked! Way to start a year, eh?

And that’s it for my January wrap-up!

Have you read/watched any of the books/films mentioned above? Let me know in the comments!
