Hi, y’all! Today I am sharing with you everything film/book wise that I got for myself and for Christmas. There is one thing I forgot to show here[that I got for Christmas] is my coloring book which I am so excited for! It is Enchanted Forest. I may show it in a separate blog. We shall see. Some other things I didn’t show[that I got for Christmas] was my new mouse, a new pair of gloves(YAY), pair of jeggings, and slippers(my favorite gift).
Let the haul begin!
First I shall share with you the films!
I did a review in my wrap-up for this. Check it out here! This is based on the true story about Alan Turing, who defeated the enigma code/machine, in order to help win WWII.
I have watched this one many times over and I thought it was about time I actually owned it, so when I saw it for cheapy cheap, I grabbed it. Find out more about it here.
Look at young Keanu Reeves! I watched this as a kid and have always wanted it and to watch it again and now I can. Find more about it here.
I have watched Hunger Games and enjoyed it enough to pick both it and the next one up. I am hoping when the time comes, whenever that will be, I will be able to get the last two combined. But I don’t really seeing that happen since they didn’t do that with the HP last two. Find out more about the film here.
I want to collect all the films I have watched with Robin Williams in it and others that I know I will enjoy and this is one of them. It isn’t one of his best, but I did enjoy it. Find out more about the film here.
I will pick up anything with Denzel Washington in and I did enjoy this so had to pick it up. It was also at the right price. Find out more about the film here.
Now onto the film I got for Christmas:
This film was amazing and heartbreaking. My opinion of Brad Pitt changed with this film. He was Ah-mazing. Find out more about the film here.
Now onto the books.
Here are the ones I got myself.
I hadn’t actually planned to buy this until I had read it, but the wait was forever long and there was only one book available to borrow. In the end, now I can read it on my own timeline and I have pretty high hopes for this one. Find more out about the book here.
This was on sale at B&N and I could not pass it up. I have been on the fence for awhile on this one, but I just couldn’t resist it. Find more out here.I really liked the color and feel of this cover. I keep mixing up this author with another and I thought it was that author’s book. Whoops. Oh well, I am still looking forward to reading this. Find more out here.
I have already read and completely enjoyed it. Highly recommend it to all. It has easily become one of my favorites. Find out more here.
I have been wanting to read Neal Stephenson’s work for over a year, but they are big books, so I decided to pick one up at B&N instead of borrowing. So much excite! Find out more here.
I’ve always wanted to read this one but every time I saw it I would always hesitate, but now was the time and I really like this cover. Find out more here.
I will pick up anything surrounding WWII and this sounds super interesting. Find out more here.
I got a gift card to B&N for Christmas and here are the four that I got.
I started this one from the library, was enjoying it, but returned it before finishing. I had to pick it up because mainly it is set in India. Find out more here.
This one sounded so intriguing and I have wanted to get into more memoirs so when I saw this I jumped at it. Find out more here.
This is being made into a film, that will be coming out this year, and the trailer looked good so when I saw the book I decided to pick it up in the hopes I will read it before watching the film. Find out more here.
This is another that I tried to read from the library but returned before finishing. It was too long for borrowing and since I had the gift card, I decided it was time to finally pick it up and I like this cover. Find out more here.
That is all I got. I don’t think I will have a haul for quite some time.
What did you get for Christmas?
