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.

Most Anticipated of 2016 II | Movies

2016 is a year where a lot of movies are being released. A lot is kind of an understatement really. From all these I’ve picked 20 movies that I’m excited about seeing in theatres. I have already done a first part with ten of them and here’s the second part of the list. I am really looking forward to all of these, because of their awesome trailers, plots or, if they are a sequel, the first movie in that series. Some of these don’t have trailers or posters, so I’ll add some concept art instead. These are in no particular order, because I’m excited about all of them and didn’t wan’t to pick any favourites.

Most Anticipated of 2016 I | Movies

So 2016 has quietly begun and I think that now is the excellent time to start looking forward. More specifically: start looking forward to all the movies that are coming out this year. (My next post will be about books, I promise) I must say that it’s a long list. With long I mean seriously multiple pages long, which is why this post will be split up into two parts. According to IMDB, the go-to source of everything movie-related, there are more than 130 movies coming out and I reckon that that list isn’t even complete yet.
I’ll be sharing the top movies I’m excited about seeing in theatres (I’ve narrowed it down to about 20 movies, so still quite a lot). Just so you know, these are in no particular order and you can also click the title to watch the trailer.
Now let’s get started, shall we?
