I’m linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
This week has been rather uneventful when it comes to books. Next week is my last week of volunteering at the UN, so I had a lot of work to get done. This meant I didn’t have a lot of time to read. I did go to the movies with some friends though.
I watched Bohemian Rhapsody for the fifth time (I’m not kidding) and cried like it was the first time. Queen has been my favorite band since I was ten. This movie made me incredibly happy for several reasons. First Freddie is the love of my life. He was the sweetest man and there are lots of popular misconceptions about him. While the movie played with timelines a lot, it addressed many of those misconceptions, which I’m grateful for. Rami Malek and the rest of the cast were amazing. Sometimes I felt I was watching the actual members of the band. The LiveAid recreation was so incredible it gave me goosebumps. I thought they would alternate back and forth with the real LiveAid, but the way the handled it was beautiful too. Also, the movie became so popular that Queen got back to being the most heard around the world. How cool is that?
In other news, NaNoWriMo was over this week and I was able to reach 50k, which is great, but now I have to finish the story. Let us hope I have the time and inspiration to finish it soon.
Books I got via NetGalley this week:
How about you guys? Did you like Bohemian Rhapsody? Did you like Queen before the movie came out? DId you participate in NaNo this year? Are you planning to read a lot next week? Let me know!
