December Wrap-Up

Has really another month passed? It felt really short this time around. Oh well.

BOOKS:

(All titles lead to my reviews, either on goodreads or on the blog)

  • Le cose così by Labadessa: this is a short graphic novel by an Italian artist who has become really popular on Facebook, posting his ironically philosophical comics whose main features are the yellow background and the fact that its characters are birds. It’s a must-read for any Italian millennial.
    32326535
  • L’amore di Audrey by Alessia Esse
    29201935
  • The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch: this book took me a very long time to read, as I explain in my review. I really liked it and its characters, but I’m also pretty sure I won’t continue this series.
    19385917
  • Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: it was my first RR book and I loved it so much! Her writing style really resonated with me and I’ll make sure to read more of her books.
    16068905
  • Carry on by Rainbow Rowell
    28356624
  • Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat
  • Prince’s Gambit by C.S. Pacat
  • Kings Rising by C.S. Pacat

    I reread (okay, I’m still currently reading Kings Rising, but whatever, I’ll finish it before the new year) these for the 3rd time wihin the past six months. That’s perfectly normal, right? Yes, yes it is. It’s my favorite series and I wanted to finish the year on a good note. Also I’ve been buddy-reading them with a friend (it was the first time for her) and she loved them so much, and there’s no better feeling in the world than having your friends love your favorite books!


SHOWS/ANIME/MOVIES:

Yuri!!! On Ice and Skam were really the only things I’ve been watching, so nothing really changed from last month. Sadly the current seasons are both over, and while I’ve been able to let Skam go, I’m still riding the YoI wave, in form of fanfiction (reading and writing), obsessive fanart search, countless re-watches. Tell me I’m not the only one.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so involved in a fandom (which is, btw, so amazing and supportive), and the feelings Yuri!!! On Ice has given me are so real and positive. It’s exactly what I (and many of us) needed.

MUSIC:

Not much has changed for me in December, with the only exception of the YoI soundtrack having being released. I’ve been listening to it for weeks now and I love it. It has so many different genres and if you don’t feel like listening to the whole thing you can just loop one or two songs that go well with your current mood (or for whatever activity you’re doing).
Basically, it’s safe to say that YoI has taken over my life in every possible way, but I don’t regret it at all.

 

How has your month been? Did you find any last-minute favorites for 2016?

  1. Oh man, Yuri on Ice! I’ve been eyeball deep in the Tumblr fandom, but haven’t ventured into fanfiction. Yet. Do you have any favorites you’d recommend? I’d really appreciate any and all suggestions! I NEED MORE YOI.

    And hurray, Captive Prince! I reread CP and PG recently in preparation for finally picking up KR (I like postponing books I know I’ll love, because I’m a masochist who enjoys the anticipation), and I know I’ll be rereading all three again in the next few months. So incredibly good, I can’t even.

    Glad to see you had a pretty good December overall!

  2. Oh boy, I got your back with YOI fanfic! Just yesterday I started a twitter thread with some of my faves so far (I’ll update with more as I dig deeper into this hellhole) ((never mind the typo in the first thread -why do bad things always happen to good people?))

    Plus a Crispino/Nekola fic that’s really close to my heart:

    And omg, why do you do this to yourself? After the last few pages of PG I would have died if I hadn’t picked up KR right away. I can’t wait to hear what you think when you finally pick it up 😀

    Btw, I want to wish you a great 2017! ♥

  3. Contrarily, I loved both Fangirl and Carry On (and Attachments, to be honest) but I wasn’t much for Eleanor and Park… YoI killed me over and over, and I am just glad Kubo-sensei confirmed the second season, because that’s all that’s keeping me going. (Well, that and waiting for Voltron’s second season, but who’s counting?)

    P. S. Should I watch Skam?
