The second anthology I’ll have read, and from the same editor as the first one I’ve read! 😀




A wonderful month full of progress and good time. PhD degree continues on a good note as the semester is slowly coming to an end. I am a bit stunned by how December is already here and 2019 even closer than ever! But something about the near future feels refreshing, filled with hopes and dreams. I guess it’s always nice to feel like the future is promising rather than gloomy, huh? 🙂 Also feel like I have the right people around me for good things to happen.

    1. Ohhhh my Goddd!!! You totally have to give the novelization a try. It’s brilliant and they really bring the characters to life. I have a lot of respect for it. You should also totally give the comic book story “Mad Love” a try if you ever want to see her original origin story. 😉 I do hope you’ll enjoy it when you get the chance to try it out!


  1. Lashaan:
    You were a Hitchcock virgin? Man, I never would have thought it. I recommend the Man Who Knew Too Much. Mainly because Bill Murray did a spoof called The Man Who Knew Too Little and it is hilarious. And it is so much better if you’ve seen the original Hitchcock version.

    Trust you can manage to properly juggle all those items you’re dealing with.

    1. Yes, sir. I’ve always been meaning to give them a try, but I never did. I know a lot of his movies are also based on books and I think I forbid myself of not seeing them till I read them, but I’ve lifted that curse from myself and am going to totally enjoy his movies now. Will put Man Who Knew Too Much on my list of movies as well. You’ve seen them all? Is that one your favourite?

      1. I watched a lot of his stuff back in highschool. They were all action’y movies that were tense that my parents would still allow us to watch. But honestly, I don’t know if I could pick one out and say “watch this one”.
        I do know that North by Northwest struck me as a teen…

  2. Skyward was my favourite book of the month too! So damn good.
    I was looking forward to seeing Widows, but now I’m even more hyped.
    I’m looking forward to your review of The Book of Magic, Lashaan. I’m almost half way through The Book of Swords and can’t bring myself to read more. I think I just don’t like short stories.

  3. I’m glad to hear you both are doing good on the Medschool / PhD degree side, that’s amazing! ❤

    Sending you both love, have a wonderful month!! ❤

  4. This year seems to have gone by so far it’s insane to me; I can’t believe it’s already December and nearly 2019 as well. I’m glad you’re feeling hopeful about the new year Lashaan, and I really hope your PhD continues on a good note too. Also Trang I really hope you and your mum are doing well and I’m wishing you all the best. I’ve had issues with my anxiety lately too but I’m glad med school is fun so far. 🙂
    Great recap, and I hope you both have an incredible rest of this year/beginning of next year too. 😀 ❤

  5. Yea Trang, 🙂 I liked Widows too. There was a point in the movie when it was going slow and I thought it would be boring, but then plot twist and dude shows up and I was like maaaaaannnn!!! This shit bout to get good!

    Hope you both have a wonderful December. 🙂
