Happy Friday! This post is right on schedule this time, phew! Anyway, I didn’t read/watch as much last month. Weird. I’ve actually got more free time after my graduation yet it’s become one of my longest slumps ever since September.  But, let’s change that this month! I’ll try to be more casual yet consistent, especially for challenges that I’ve (lowkey) failed so far. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Books

๐Ÿ“š Descendant of the Crane by Joan He โ‡พ One of my most anticipated for April! The genre is something that I’m not usually read, but I’m excited to explore more this year. Also, I’m reading this for #YARC2019!

๐Ÿ“š Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connoly โ‡พ Yes, I was driven by my high interest in mystery/thriller story and yes, it was also partly because of the number of positive reviews about this book.

๐Ÿ“š New Suns edited by Nisi Shawl โ‡พ In this collection of short stories, there will be bits of anthology, fantasy, and science-fiction and everything’s written by people of color!

๐Ÿ“š The Center of the Universe by Ria Voros โ‡พ Modern age story, space and stars, along with mystery? Sign me up!

๐Ÿ“š Radio Silence by Alice Oseman โ‡พ I read this for Diverse Divers book club and I can’t wait to start this one!

๐Ÿ“š Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake โ‡พ This will be the first series that I start this year and I think it’s going to be a perfect choice!

๐Ÿ“š The Ultimate History of the ’80s Teen Movie by James King โ‡พ My first non-fiction read of 2019 and of course, it’s going to be cinema-related.

Movies

Honestly, I’ve been failing so badly with my movie goals. I guess I’m just going to put a list of movies that are going to come out this month.

๐Ÿฟ Captain Marvel โ‡พ I’m actually quite surprised to find myself to be not as enthusiast as I thought I’d be about this movie…

๐Ÿฟ Five Feet Apart โ‡พ In between my mystery/thriller intakes, I need this type of (hopefully) fluffy movie.

๐Ÿฟ Us โ‡พ This looks super promising and it looks like it’s going to be better than Get Out (2017) so I’m going to be mad if it’s not, really.

Series

It seems like this series was heavily inspired by one of the Black Mirror episode, Hang the DJ. But I don’t wanna judge too soon. It might have a different plot/twist, so we’ll see. But basically, the premise said, “In near future Paris, a dating app matches singles with their soulmates by mining their brain data, but decoding true love comes at a price.”.

Trailer โ€ข Netflix

And those are my picks for this month. Now, it’s your turn! What’s in your TBR and TBW for this month? Anything that makes you particularly excited? Anything that you want to add to your own lists after reading my post? Share it below! ๐Ÿ˜‰

What about you? What are you going to read and watch this month?

  1. Ooh! I had never heard of NEW SUNS but I absolutely love anthologies, and even more if they are diverse anthologies. Thank you so much for sharing these books!

    I went to see Captain Marvel recently, and though I went in with low expectations (as I do with most movies nowadays), I thought it was actually pretty good and I had so much fun watching it. I hope you enjoyed it if you went to see it! ๐Ÿ’›

    1. You’re welcome! Unfortunately, I’ve failed miserably last month and I still haven’t finished New Suns and also haven’t watched Captain Marvel. But hopefully, I can do them both this month!
