Hello ladies & gentlemen,
Who doesn’t love the anticipation of new releases and things that they plan on doing? Every month there seems to be something new and exciting ready to hit the market for our consumption.
Being ready to embrace them with open arms is all we can really do.
To showcase this, I’ll be sharing my top 3 for each category of things that I look forward to this month right here, right now!
TO BE READ.
I’m not changing anything to my June TBR just so I can finish up what I’ve already started. Really looking forward to how this one turns out!
I’m deep into this one and I’m quite impressed by how John Gwynne handles his world-building here. It is indeed even more impressive than anything I’ve read by him so far.
Almost done with this one and I’m glad to that it meets my expectations quite perfectly! More on this soon!
I know someone who is a huge fan of Benjamin Percy (wink wink) and I’m curious about his latest novel. Having only known him for his comics, it really got me curious as to what he can achieve with books!
I’ve been seeing this one around a lot and it sounds quite fun! And the cover is pretty. 😉
I don’t know how many times I told myself I’d try his Greatcoats series and I still haven’t. His latest novel sounds just as good though and now I have to wonder what book should be my first by him.
COMIC BOOK RELEASES.
Writer Tom King showcased a pretty decent understanding of Superman whenever he has had the chance to play with the character before and now it’s time for him to try things out with Supergirl. Who knows where this will go.
I dedicated last month to reading through all four volumes of writer Mark Millar’s Jupiter’s Legacy just to see if the Netflix adaptation would be worth checking out… While decent, the fact that they now cancelled the show after 1 season has me less enthused to try it out. I am, however, curious about this new story arc after so many years!
How exactly do you say no to a Batman story by writer Garth Ennis? And a story about some sort of creature that goes after villains? I’m all in.
TV SHOW RELEASES.
Remember when I dedicated one of my Digital Mini Reviews post to the whole Sweet Tooth series by writer Jeff Lemire? Well, here’s DC surprising us with a TV series adaptation of the comics! It looks aesthetically amazing. It remains to be seen if they’ll stick to the comics or not.
Having seen season 1, I can safely say that this show is pretty entertaining, despite being a bit predictable. I am curious to see what they have in store for season 2 though.
I’ve watched The Conjuring movies so far so I can tell you that I’m most likely going to check this one out just for the heck of it but I definitely won’t rush to do so.
How does anyone even say no to a Disney/Pixar movie nowadays? Let’s see what they’ll make us feel this time around.
The clearly over-the-top franchise continues to expand with their 9th installment and, at this point, I’m just watching these to see how much more ludicrous it can get. 😉
I’d love to say that June is going to be peaceful and all but I think it’ll be best if I don’t lie to myself already. June is going to be beyond hectic and I’m already looking forward to July. Time management is going to be my number one issue here and it’s going to be challenge to keep everything afloat until the end of the month.
Halfway into the month, I need to go on a “business trip” (drive 6 hours further north of the province) for a week of training (mostly police officers who are going to be doing that) and that week alone is probably going to keep me quite busy! I do look forward to the experience though, so that keeps me thrilled.
Right after that week, I fall into my “vacation” period but it’ll mostly be overshadowed by writing sessions that need to be done so that I can hand in a couple of university assignments by the end of the month. Since they are still work “vacations”, I will definitely maintain a healthy lifestyle and do the things I want to do just so that I don’t come back to work completely burned out! 😛
At least the cool thing about June is that the province will be progressively re-opening pretty much everything as of June 7th and life will slowly get back to its usual self! That means more activities for us! And more time management issues to handle, especially now that I’ll finally be able to put back hitting the gym into my schedule! 😀
June is going to be wild. 😉
Thank you all for checking out my monthly anticipation post!
Now tell me what you’re looking forward to this month! Any new releases? Anything exciting you plan on doing?
