Confession time: I haven’t read anything this week. I’ve been focusing on my exams, as I’ve come to the more/most difficult ones. I am currently reading Rite of Revelation (Acceptance #2) by Sarah Negovetich, which I got from Netgalley for review. I reviewed the first book in the duology (?) when that came out, so I’m curious to see how it will end.
The Martian // ★★★★★ // I finally watched The Martian! I had been looking forward to this movie for so long, because I loved the book. But then I didn’t actually get a chance to watch it. And I finally did. And it was so worth it. Matt Damon did an amazing job portraying Mark Watney. And I enjoyed the view the movie gave us into the NASA-side of the story. The part the people on Earth took in it. All in all, incredible movie, should definitely watch.
Room // ★★★★ // This is quite the famous book in the blogging community, but I have never read it. I still wanted to watch the movie though. I very much enjoyed the movie, if you can enjoy something on this topic. It was interesting to watch because it’s told mostly through Jack, a little boy. Very touching story, and an intriguing watch!
Song of the Sea // ★★★★ // I am dumbstruck by this movie. I had never heard of it prior to watching, but it is going on the very-memorable-animated-movies list. It was beautiful! I am not kidding, it has maybe the most beautiful animations I have ever seen. This/these illustrators are exceptional artists. It’s about the fair folk, more specifically, a selkie. I haven’t watched much of Scottish/Irish folklore, but this was definitely worth watching.
This week, I started watching some series. I started two new ones, in fact.
I started watching Mr. Robot. It’s very… interesting. It’s about hacking, security, global corporations, scandals and so on. I can’t really describe it? I’m only a few episodes in, but I’m intrigued so far.
I also started watching Sons of Anarchy. BIG MISTAKE! Why? Well, I’m in the middle of exams. Starting a series this good and interesting, and perfectly suited for binge-watching, is not an ideal decision in the exam months. All I want to do is watch more. But I can’t. I need to watch more. And wow, Jax Teller. No words needed.
I also caught up on certain shows! For example, I watched the 2 newest episodes of Agent Carter, which I love to pieces. I can’t express my love for Peggy Carter (and Hayley Atwell obviously). I also watched an episode of Criminal Minds, and the newest episode of The 100! I am so excited for this coming season of the 100, it’s going to be epic.
Not much to report here. As I mentioned before, I’m going through exam month right now. Last week, I had international management on Tuesday, and quantitative methods on Thursday. Quantitative was such a hard exam! Seriously. The coming week, I have three exams: Business Processes, Marketing Trends, and Family Businesses. Wish me luck?
I am so looking forward to the 29th of January, when all this will be over.
That’s really all I have to report on this week! What did you read or watch? Hope you’ll have a great week!
