August Wrap Up | My Worst Reading Month ...?

Hello everyone !

August is over and Winter is coming (I'm not talking about the actual winter I'm talking about college, don't judge me). In a week I'll go back to college and … I don't want to. I'm not going to complain for a whole paragraph about it so let's move on to the fun stuff : Games !
I fell in love with Life is Strange. It's such a fascinating game. For those who've never heard of it, it's basically a game where every choice you make will have an impact on the present and the future (and sometimes the past too). We follow a high school student who can rewind time and let me tell you, it's not as cool as it sounds. I mean, yes ,time-travel is awesome but the consequences, guys. Everytime I had to make a choice I had to think about what would happen next. The cool thing is that you can rewind after making a choice to see the other alternatives.

Now let's talk about reading … *sighs*. It was complicated. I thought I was in a reading slump for a while but the only problem was that I didn't love any of the books I've read - or tried to read - this month.

Game of Thrones S7 | Part 1 : The North

 Hello and welcome to the obsessive part of my brain.

As you may or may not know, I'm a huge fan of Game of Thrones. I love the show, I love the books even more, I'm completely obsessed. Today, I'm going to review, ramble and share my crazy interpretations of this season.

Before you go into this review you need to know that :

1. I'm going to divide this review in two parts : The North and the South (take a moment to admire my creativity here).
2. There are LOTS of spoilers ahead, you're warned.
3. All of my theories are my own. I don't really read fan theories
4. If a quote isn't in a blockquote or in italic, it's just me paraphrasing the characters.
5. I tend to talk directly to the characters. Don't worry, they're used to it.

The Longest Book Tag !

Hello everyone !

Today I'm doing the longest book tag. It was created by Ditsha from Bewitchingly Paranoid and I was tagged by Sam from Tsundoku Books.

The Rules:
1. Make a list of the five longest books you've ever read.
2. Select two of the longest books on your TBR.
3. Discuss.
4. Tag others

All of these books have more than 500 pages. This post would be a little dull if I repeated five times how much I loved those books so instead I'm going to tell you what kept me reading.

Trailer Reaction : Death Note

Hello everyone !

Today I'm doing something different because …. I'm out of content. Just kidding *nervous laugh* of course I'm not out of content. *clears throat* let's go back to business. Books are great but I want to talk about other things sometimes and since I'm a huge fan of TV Shows and movies, I thought « why not ? ». So today I'm bringing you my reaction to the trailer of the Netflix adaptation of Death Note (spoiler alert : I think this is going to be terrible.)

This post contains spoilers for the original story. Italic quotes are from the manga/anime.
