Oh guess what. OH GUESS WHAT. So.. I wanted to do a vlog so I could tell you guys this (non-exciting) story but ah well. My mom kept telling me my aunt wanted to get me a grad present (lucky me :D) and I was never really sure what I wanted. And I did tell my mom over and over again that I did NOT want an ereader. I did NOT want to let go of my physical books and my dream would to bring my entire YA collection with me to university.
Well, she didn't really listen and using her mother-common-senses (and telling me over and over again that "books are heavy"... pahh) she told my aunt to get me an ereader. Yes. A Kindle to be exact.
So now... yeah. And it has this really nice case (the book is Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard!).
I have read a book on it (plus I can put Netgalley ARCs on it, yes!) and yeah. I don't really have words because I feel like SUCH A TRAITOR *SOBS* *clings to physical books* *apologizes profusely*
I do like it. It pains me to say, but I do!
I'm leaning towards calling him Reid, after Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds (and honestly, what a clever punny thing, eh?) but I'm also considering Sheldon. Since Leonard is my laptop. Big Bang Theory anyone? (though to be honest, Leonard didn't inspire Leonard, I just thought the name was perfect)
haha, and no books this week!
I decided in my IMM I'll also include random tidbits from the week. Such as movies I watched (since apparently I've stopped doing "Movie Thoughts").
X-Men: First Class
-loved it (and yes, I've watched all the X-Men movies, I'm surprised by how many people haven't)! James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender were awesome, I thought Jennifer Lawrence was great as well (and I love the Hunger Games casting, contrary to public opinion). The setting during the Cuban Missile Crisis/Cold War was really well done (and I felt smart because I took History in last year so I knew what was going on, hahaha). I loved to see this whole 'prequel' thing and the mutants and how Magneto and Professor X had their differing opinions. Acting was great, though thanks to Twitter, all I can imagine is James McAvoy touching his temple in his uber-concentrated gesture :P I thought the action was exciting and the evil guy definitely fit the evil bill! Overall, great film, definitely recommended. 8.5/10
-I'll admit, I have been wanting to watch this movie for a while now despite grand reservations. It surprised me! I couldn't get through the book (cue headdesking at the very thought) and yes, a lot of the annoyingness carried over (the super bitchy, self-centered best friend gahhhh and the annoying, chicken-shit Dex) but hey, whatever. John Krasinski (Ethan) was probably the gem of it all as he was both hilarious and down to earth (I LOVE HIM). And Colin Egglesfield (Dex) is so fine. But anyways, story itself was ehh but it was kind of nice at parts. Good, not great, very predictable, but if you're in the mood I think this movie will do. 7/10
I JUST MADE THIS. Because I have nothing else to do at 1 in the morning.

And sheesh, I always forgot to mention this, Linds at Bibliophile Brouhaha and Nic at Irresistible Reads are hosting KIRSTY EAGAR WEEK! YAY! As you might know, Linds let me take part in a tour for Raw Blue and I totally loved it (understatement) so I'm excited for this feature. You ladies rock!
And that's it! Leave a comment and I'll be sure to drop by. Let me know if you want me to write a post about the Kindle, but ehh, it's ultimately up to you guys. I finished Nevermore by Kelly Creagh this week (my reading has been in the dumps, despite the list of great books I'm looking forward to reading) so expect a review of that soon :) And I've got an awesome list idea coming up too! Happy reading lovelies!
ps~ dear parentheses, why are you EVERYWHERE.
