Birthday // Haul

It’s been exactly a month since my birthday and I’m only now doing my haul. This post is way overdue, but I do have a good reason for it. I always get these wonderful gifts from my family which I’m very thankful for. But they also always give me some money and I usually go online immediately and order a bunch of stuff. I basically wanted to wait with writing this post until everything I ordered had arrived and now that’s finally the case, except for one thing, but I can live with that.


The Flash – season one
I’m starting with something that I didn’t get for my birthday. I actually bought this one a few days before my birthday, because I still had a gift card that would soon expire. As I’ve said in a recent post, I’m really excited about watching The Flash, but I’m first going to catch up on Arrow in order to watch that universe in the correct chronological order.

Marshall Major II headphones
Music is very important to me. I listen everyday and that requires some good headphones. I used to listen with the earbuds that I got when I bought my phone, but it was time to buy something better. And when I saw these Marshall headphones being discounted, I immediately knew that I wanted them. These headphones deliver great sound and are comfortable to wear.

I Hate Fairyland vol. 1 // Comic Review

I Hate Fairyland Infocard II.png

Goodreads | Book Depository

Skottie Young, who you may know from writing and drawing Rocket Raccoon and Groot, delivers once again with I Hate Fairyland. This time he writes for a different publisher, which results in a totally different series. If you take the time to read the synopsis for this series you’ll immediately notice that this is not some ordinary fairytale. Being a mix between Alice in Wonderland and Deadpool, this series offers you a raunchy and hilarious take on the way too familiar story.

That Summer Feeling

My last exam is coming up next week, so it’s the perfect time to start looking forward to the summer vacation. The good weather, traveling and loads of free time are things I’m in desperate need of. School has been extremely busy this year, as I just almost finished my first year in college, and I really need some time to catch up on sleep and all other sorts of things. In this post I’d like to take a look at all the things that I’m aspiring to read or watch this summer.


Yes Please – Amy Poehler
I’ve already started reading this quite a while ago, but I wasn’t able to continue reading due to having to read another book for school. Now that that’s over I’ll gladly reprise Yes Please. I’ve only read 36 pages (and the prologue) so far, but I was already really enjoying it. She’s hilarious and it’s fun to know she’s dealing with other people and situations.

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
I think it’s about time that I read this one. Gone Girl has garnered a lot of critical acclaim and it has been lauded by readers, so I guess that’s the most important recommendation you can get. The fact that I liked The Girl on the Train so much and that it is being called ‘the new Gone Girl’ should say something, right? I’m really excited to read this one, or perhaps devour is a better word, and then I can finally watch the movie as well.

Random Things II | Haul

I’m here again with another haul. It’s been a while since my last one, mainly because I haven’t bought that much lately which you’ll probably notice from the items I’m mentioning in this post. I can very well change the title of this post to My favourites as these aren’t necessarily things that I buy to keep. I’m saying that because there’s food on this list.


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – season 1DSC_0189.jpg
I bought and watched this quite a while ago, but this is still something that’s on my mind sometimes. I’ve been wanting to watch the second season, but I haven’t really gotten to it yet. The first one was hilarious and caught me off-guard. Sure, I sometimes thought it was getting too quirky, but then it just carried on and I didn’t mind it. Ellie Kemper is exquisite as the main character and seriously makes you believe that she isn’t familiar with things nowadays. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go watch this series, because it’ll be weird if I try to explain it. I recommend this series to everyone who likes quirkiness with a lot of heart. Being written by Tina Fey should be enough to win you over, if you’re a fan of this kind of humour.

Random Things | Haul

As I do everyday, I go online and do some irrelevant things like spending way too much time on Tumblr, tweet useless bits of information about my life and look at other people’s photos on Instagram. Every now and then I also tend to buy a few things when I’m at it.
So here’s what I’ve ordered recently.

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
I wanted to read something of Christie for a long time. It’s probably one of her most famous books and I thought would fit well as a start in the series of Hercule Poirot. If it turns out that I like this book, I’ll definitely pick up more of her books and start from the actual first book.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Since watching Parks and Recreation, I’ve become a fan of Amy Poehler. She is extremely funny and has done some amazing work in comedy. I’m looking forward to reading this one as it’ll be something completely else than the books I’ve already read and I hope it’s going to be quite funny.

Rocket Raccoon vol. 1 | Comic Review

Rocket Raccoon vol. 1

Goodreads | Book Depository

When watching Guardians of the Galaxy, I had only read one of the comics. So afterwards, I wanted to submerge myself a bit more in these characters and their stories. Rocket Raccoon is a great standalone comic series that heavily relies on it’s art and wit. 

Skottie Young wrote and pencilled this series and he did an amazing job with it. He is known for his ‘Little Marvel’ variant covers, which are always funny and cute and even had their own series. Now he is creating a series called I Hate Fairyland for Image and he is continuing on Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
The art is bright and colourful and fits well with the story and the overall feel of this series. From issue #5 and on, Jake Parker takes over the illustration part from Young. Parker does a good job in maintaining Young’s art style.
I seriously cracked up when Rocket shot something and when it blew up the phrase Nailed It was written over the blast. It’s these little things that make this series unique.
