This month I read 11 books!! #LikeABoss #ImAReadingMachine
Okay, some are single issue comics, and one wash finishing up a magazine, but still counts! 😛
*** I have now read 39 of my 52 book goal for the year. I am 11 books ahead! (I was 7 book last month) ***
Fun Fact: I read 38 books last year 🙂
What I Watched
- Kuroko’s Basketball – (FAVORITE)
- Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma – I love food and cooking and anime.
- Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? – I’m liking this more and more
- My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU – Actually only watched more one episode this month, but once OINTB is done, I’ll get back to it.
- Master Chef – Wednesday-yay!
- Sons of Anarchy – Season 7 is finally on Netflix!… AND I finally watched a single episode
- Orange is the New Black – Season 3! One epside left to watch. This is why SOA didn’t get watched again.
Have you been watching any of these?
Steam Summer Sale
First I have a confession to make… I – DJ – am a… a.. MAC gamer LOL
I grabbed the Dark Eye Universe Bundle, which contains Black Guards, Black Guards: Untold Legends, The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, and Memoria – but I bought the bundle for those point-and-click adventure. Also picked up Choice of the Deathless (that’s the text-adeventure novel by Max Gladstone), and Hero Siege – it was $0.89 and I saw TodalBiscut do a WTF of it a while back and though it looked okay.
Did you pick any games up of the steam summer sale? (Also, E3… the Guardian! and Horizon Zero Down!)
The Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie, Fullmetal Alchemist Vol. 3 by Hiromu Arakawa, Edge of Dark by Brenda Copper, and I’m 99% sure I’m going to read and review The Folding Knife by K.J. Parker for by Backlist Burndown Review.
Continuing with The Dark Tower series, working in some more Power Mage novellas, reading some more comics, and probably a couple other stand alone of whatever I’m in the mood for.
