A pretty great reading month here – I didn’t do as much reading as I could have done, but I’ve been enjoying just switching off a bit now that my MSc is finished, and now that I’ve found myself a part-time job. I didn’t love The Death Cure, but I’ve had a pretty great selection other than that. I loved The Martian when I read it the first time, and recently listened to the audiobook with Matt (highly recommended!), because he wanted to read it before the film (which I can’t wait to see!). I pretty much knew I would love Queen of Shadows and Fool’s Quest as they’re favourite authors and favourite series, and they didn’t disappoint. A Thousand Pieces of You was pretty enjoyable too – I didn’t LOVE it, but I was disappointed to find the sequel isn’t out yet, so that tells you I definitely enjoyed it!

Favourite: I loved the Martian the first time I read it and I continued to love it a second time! I also adored both Queen of Shadows and Fool’s Quest.
Like last month, I think I only went to the cinema once this month – to see The Scorch Trials, which I’m sad to say I thought was pretty rubbish! At home I watched Up (which is so sad!) which I actually think I enjoyed more this second time around. In terms of TV, we finished The 100 (season 1). I‘ve started watching Avatar The Last Airbender because I’ve seen lots of it, but not in order, and Doctor Who for the same reason – I seem to have missed a fair few of the Christopher Eccleston ones!
We haven’t listened to much – after finishing The Martian, we started Ready Player One which hasn’t exactly taken off – I think we’ve made it through about half an hour so far…. Hunt The Truth Season 2 has started so we’ve been listening to that, but that’s about it really!
