In My Life: A Little Update from Me

Update: well, it’s been 4 weeks since my last confession STS post. Been a busy couple of weeks (again). Not done that much reading (shocker, I know) but have been catching up on a lot of my TV shows and been going to the movies quite a bit so that has taken up a lot of my time.

Went to see The Other Side of the Door (pretty spooky) and The Witch (which was really weird) so horror has been bit of a theme lately. Also went to see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which was… alright I guess, but a bit long for my tastes (especially at the cinema – my bum was really sore afterwards from sitting so long lol).

The one I enjoyed the most though was 10 Cloverfield Lane. I will not give away any spoilers except to say it was a really tense film. As to whether it is a sequel to Cloverfield… well, let’s just say you will have to go and find out for yourself – not giving away anything here. 😉 I really have managed to catch up with movies but unfortunately not much to update you with on the bookish side.

The Battlstar Galactica re-watch continues and I am still riveted by American Crime Story and The Walking Dead – I am absolutely dreading the season finale though – please don’t kill off my babies!!

I also finally bought myself a photography backdrop. I absolutely love Instagram and taking pictures of my books so I thought it was about time I invested in one of these. I also had to buy myself a new laptop because my old one just wasn’t really up to speed anymore. I really loved it so I was sad to have to upgrade but I’m really loving the new one so far – best update I could have done.

  1. I love the cover and sound of The Forbidden Wish! I may need to check it out. I also agree Batman V Superman was ok, but could have easily been 1/2 hour shorter. Have a great week!

  2. Wow! You got a ton of great stuff! I’m really looking forward to reading The Forbidden Wish and I’ve been hearing a lot of good stuff about it so I’m excited to read that one! Also a new laptop. Sounds like you’ve had an awesome week. Haha.
