July Wrap-up and a New Series

And another month has just flown by. July is now officially over, so let's review this month, shall we?

Book Reviews 

Last month, I reviewed a total of four books, with an average rating of 4,5 stars.

The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons - 5 stars

Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone - 3 stars

The X-Files: Cold Cases by Joe Harris - 5 stars

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine - 5 stars

All I can say is that it has been a good month for reading.


Movies

I also went to see two new movies:

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which was a blast. This movie was everything I wanted in a summer blockbuster. Plus, I'm positive that Kurt Russel will finally get people to stop saying that Marvel doesn't have good villains.


I apologise for the fangirl moment.




War for the Planet of the Apes, which was good. I liked it. It was trying too hard to be this epic drama, but it was the perfect conclusion to the new POTA series, and I had a lot of fun counting the easter eggs and callbacks to the original movie.





What to look forward to 

Well, I'm still listening to Stephen King's It. Four hours done, forty more to go! Expect a review in a month or so.

I also got an ARC of Andy Weir's new book, Artemis on Netgalley, and I'm reading it right now. It's a lot of fun, but more on that later.

And, finally, I'm starting my new series of book reviews, titled Before They Were Blockbusters, where I'll be reviewing books that were adapted into popular movies. First on the list is The Prestige by Christopher Priest.
