So what happened this January? [January Wrap-Up]

Another new year, another reading challenge that I’ll probably fail.

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.

S'mores! ❤

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

[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!
