Read & watched: 2014 part 2

August 07, 2014


I'm here with another update on everything I've read and watched so far. It's not as much as last time but I'm still going. Everything is in chronological order this time and the bold ones are my favorites. Feel free to send recommendations my way!

BOOKS I'VE READ
- Brisingr
- Inheritance
- Happy Life
- A Game of Thrones
- A Clash of Kings
- A Storm of Swords
- A Feast for Crows

I finished the eragon series which I really loved. I didn't like the ending that much so I hope there will still follow another book. I also (finally) started the A Song of Ice and Fire series. I've been a huge fan of the series from the first episode so I had to give it a go. It's kind of difficult to get into in the beginning because of the different narrators but you get used to it. It still sucks when you see the name of one of your least favorite characters at the beginning of a new chapter though haha. My favorites (at this moment) are Arya (obviously), Jon and Sansa, while I didn't really like Sansa in the beginning! Least favorite is Brienne. I also read Happy Life from my favorite blogger Mascha Feoktistova. I expected more to be honest. It was a fun read, but I wouldn't recommend it.



MOVIES I'VE SEEN
- No Reservations: Didn't even remember this one, had to look it up. Typical chickflick.
- Eragon: I thought this was a good movie before I read the books. Now I absolutely hate it!
- Divergent: I didn't love the casting but it's still a pretty good adaptation.
- Mirror Mirror: Not special.



- Inglorious Basterds: Already seen a couple of times, awesome movie.
- Thor: the dark world: Fell asleep.
- Lovelace: I didn't know what to expect but this was a really good movie!
- Jobs: Another biography and I loved it. I know lots op people hated Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs but I think he did an awesome job (pun not intended).



- X-Men: Days of Future Past: You either love this movie or hate it. I loved it!
- Don't be a menace: One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I didn't add a picture on purpose. Seriously though, do not watch this movie!
- the Dreamers: Really weird but really liked it. Remember when I said I loved Eva Green? Jep.
- the Other Boleyn Girl: I saw this in London years ago so I felt a little nostalgic watching this one. Not extravagantly good but a nice movie anyway.
- the Blind Side: This was the movie that finally made me love Sandra Bullock. Definitely recommend this one!

PROGRESS
25/50 books: I'm on schedule right now, but I'm not sure I'll get there in the end, the game of thrones books are slowing it down.
25/52 movies: Right on schedule again, what a coincidence! I'm more confident about this goal than the one above.

(I already wrote this post in week 25, I'll update again in a couple of weeks.)

  1. You're certainly doing your best! I kind of want to read the Games of Thrones books too. I mean, I absolute LOVE the show, so it only makes sense right?
