This has been a month filled with pretty good books! The best was definitely Our Lady of the Streets by Tom Pollock, which was a touching and thrilling conclusion to a really amazing urban fantasy trilogy. I absolutely can’t wait to see what Tom Pollock does next. I will read anything this man writes, ever.
I also read two other books: Between Two Thorns by Emma Newman, and Ultraviolet by R. J. Anderson. I enjoyed both very much. The reviews for those are coming up soon!
Things that happened in December
I watched two movies at the cinema! The first was Big Hero 6, which I absolutely adored. I cried so much. I was an emotional mess throughout that movie. I loved Baymax so much. I WANT A BAYMAX.
I also watched The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. I enjoyed this a lot! Very cool battle scenes. Lee Pace as Thranduil is hotter than ever. Some scenes towards the end made me pretty tearful. I’m sad there aren’t going to be any more of these movies now. ):
The Good Omens BBC radio play was released, so I started listening to that. (You can listen to it here. It’s available to listen online for the next 4 weeks.) I’m currently halfway through Episode 3. It’s good! I like it a lot. I read Good Omens only once, many years ago when I was about 13 or 14, and I really loved it. It’s nice experiencing the book again in another format. The jokes still crack me up.
I’m getting a real Kindle at last! This was a Christmas present from my mum, but she’s ordering it from Amazon to be delivered to my uni address so it’ll be there when I get back to uni on 11 January. This is super exciting. I no longer have to feel my eyes drooping my exhaustion after staring at ebooks on my glaringly bright iPhone screen for too long!
