TOP BOOK.

Naruto (Vol. 60) by Masashi Kishimoto.

I’m getting closer to the end of this series and I’ve finally gotten around to a fun and epic moment in the story centered around Naruto and what he once again inspires in everyone. I’m convinced teenage-me would have loved this even more than current-me!

LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK.

Attack on Titan (Vol. 34) by Hajime Isayama.

The final volume of the series was a letdown for me. It didn’t feel like it fit into the overarching ideas.

TOP MOVIE.

(c) IMDb.

Out of the 14 movies I watched in March 2022, The Batman (2022) was my favourite. This was inevitable. I also ended up watching it twice, back-to-back, and it was still as good as the first time.

What is The Batman (2022) about? When the Riddler, a sadistic serial killer, begins murdering key political figures in Gotham, Batman is forced to investigate the city’s hidden corruption and question his family’s involvement.

If you would like to know more about my thoughts, I invite you to check out my review of the movie here.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

CURRENTLY READING.

Brood X by Joshua Dysart.

Picked this up to get a taste of this author’s writing and thought its shortness was very appealing at this very moment!

PERSONAL LIFE.

What a month it has been. I’ve gotten around to figuring out a routine that works better with what I want to do and complete before the end of the week and I’m quite happy by what I’ve accomplished so far.

Reading-wise, I’ve managed to fully incorporate audiobooks into my lifestyle. This used to be much more complicated before but now I easily progress through them because of certain activities that I do on an almost daily basis (e.g. 15 minutes walk back and forth from the gym, doing groceries or chores). I’m quite glad that I don’t find this a hassle and look forward to how it works out throughout April.

I’m also quite happy by what I’ve managed to publish on my new blog this month. Everything just feels right out here.

Towards the end of the month, I did find myself dedicating a bit more time to get through some Oscar nominees before they announced the winner of the Best Picture award. While I’m still a bit disappointed by the announcement, it was interesting to see it all go down. Now I can get back to watching stuff from my personal backlog.

The last couple of days were also crazy busy (thus me posting my wrap up on the 1st instead of the 31st) as I was off on a work-related mission to Ontario to meet people from other police departments regarding ongoing legislations and bodycam deployments. It was such an enlightening and informative experience but, man, was it mentally-exhausting! I look forward to taking things easy this week-end, that’s for sure.


Thank you all for checking out my monthly wrap-up and don’t forget to check out any posts that might interest you or that you might have missed out on!

Stay tuned for my Monthly Anticipation post coming out soon. 😉

So what’s going on with y’all? What have you discovered this month? What are your thoughts on the books/TV series/movies I’ve checked out?

Yours truly,

  1. Yay, good to hear you’ve adapted to audiobooks. They make reading so much easier, because you don’t have to dedicate any time to sit down and read. I wouldn’t get any reading done without audiobooks. Can’t believe you watched Batman twice back-to-back, don’t think I could do that with any movie!

    1. I can definitely see how it helps so many of us get through more books than we ever could without. I do hope I don’t land on a bad one where the narrator could be entirely blamed for the experience though hahaha And yes! I don’t often do back-to-back viewings unless the opportunity and desire present themselves simultaneously! Especially when this movie is 3 hours long hahaha

  2. Sounds like you had a great month! Glad to hear you’ve incorporated audiobooks into your routine. I love them, because I enjoy having someone telling me a story while I’m doing mundane things like washing the dishes. I hope you have a great month in April!

  3. Brood X had me thinking of an older X-Men storyline where Wolverine gets infected by the Brood, which if I recall was some kind of parasitic thing that transforms or takes over the victim. But it appears this one is prose and completely different. Glad to hear you’re working out a routine for your life that lets you get to the things you enjoy as well as those you need to take care of. Like you, I’ve really started embracing audiobooks. Anytime I’m in the car or doing work around the house I’m likely listening to one. Some narrators can really help bring a story to life.

    1. I’ll be curious to see if I can draw any parallels with that X-Men/Wolverine reference! I do love a good routine to keep your days busy and productive. And yes, audiobooks are truly wonderful when you figure out a way to incorporate them into your life, especially during mundane tasks! And I agree. Some narrators have that special voice that works so well for some stories!

  4. I have heard only amazing things about Batman! And I am so glad that now you are an audiobook fan! I too listen to them while walking, driving or doing chores!

  5. I’m glad to hear about how you managed to fit audiobooks in your daily life! I’m trying to do the same for podcasts but most of the times I just want to listen to music because it just makes unloading the dishwasher a bit more fun 😛 it’s really great that you get to travel a bit with your work, but I can understand how exhausting this must be! I hope you got enough time to rest last weekend! 😊

    1. Hahahah I try to balance out the moments where it’s more appropriate to listen to audiobooks than music and so far it’s been magical! Hopefully, you’ll find what works for you when it comes to listening to podcasts vs. music! 😛 Hope you’re having an excellent month of April so far, Juliette! 😀

  6. I still don’t do audiobooks, except while driving 😉 On walks, I play Pokemon Go 😀
    I’m happy Naruto’s conclusion holds up for you even in your not-so-teenage years, Lashaan! 😀

      1. Unfortunately, Boruto seems exactly like DBS equivalent, sigh. I don’t know much about the earlier versions of Pokemon Go, started playing in November, but the current one is pretty fun 😉
