I never really know the exact date of when I started this blog so when I set up my blogversary badge I used the date of my first post as its founding day. Oh, how time flies. Off The Wall (shanatalks[dot]wordpress[dot]com) is ONE year old!
April was a challenging (and tiring) month for me. I’m thankful for the 5 days off I had at the start of the month because the succeeding weeks had been hell difficult. If not for the several scheduled post I made during the 5-day holiday off, I doubt it if I’d find the time to post reviews/memes on schedule. Anyway, here are the things that will keep me busy for the next 4 weeks.
I had a copy of this since last year and I watched the first two episodes but later decided to just drop it because I didn’t like the cast. Are you wondering what changed my mind? ABS-CBN is airing the tagalized version of this and when I saw the trailer they made, I’m intrigued. It seems interesting. Then Jeff, my boyfriend, asked for my copy and he watched it for 4 days. He said it was better than Heartstrings and I should watch and review it. Now, I’m really interested. Jeff isn’t the type who usually watches musical dramas. He’s more into Iris-City Hunter kind of drama series. He also said he didn’t like the ending but he still recommends that I should watch it. Hmm. Dream High suddenly is on top of my TBW list.
King 2 Hearts
I have a penchant for royalties. I like movies and series about modern-day princes and princesses so when I saw this in koreandrama.org I was more than happy to include this in my May Drama Watch List. If I’m not mistaken, the drama will be finished this month. I watched the first 4 episodes online and it was pretty good. The bad news is I have to wait for the online uploads every week. Good thing, I was so busy last month I didn’t have the chance to check the available episodes. I’m sure I have a lot of catching up to do.
I don’t have anything for movies this May. I haven’t watched Unofficially Yours yet (this had been part of my TBW list for months now) once I get hold of a DVD copy I’ll be watching it. I finished The Vow last month and I liked it (especially the ahem scene, don’t play dumb with me I know you know what I’m talking about :D). I’ll be posting my review once I’m done with it. Hopefully, this month.
I need to have a reading plan. I have a lot of pending reads and on hiatus novels that I didn’t know when to finish. This month I have to try to stick with my reading plan. (Ugh. Most of the contemporary novels I’m waiting for are set to release this month. Good luck to me. :’))
I started reading these books last month but I didn’t finish them for reasons I do and don’t know.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I decided to put this off last month because I’m starting to hate Lena. I don’t want to give this a 2-star rating (like someone I know) so putting it aside was the best thing I can do.
Losing Faith by Denise Jaden
I got this book June of last year. I started reading this 2 weeks ago but I was immersed with work I didn’t have the chance to pick it up again. I mean, I could but for some reason I was more interested in reading the second and third book of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy. Haha.
I promise not to make excuses this month and finish both of these books. I’m still leaving two other books on hiatus though—Pride and Prejudice & Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares—I’m planning to finish them this year but not now.
The following books are part of my MAY Reading Plan.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky – Getting ready for the upcoming movie this September
Paper Towns by John Green – as recommended by JG fans in GR
I’m hoping May would be a wonderful (and cooler) month for all of us. April was hell—literally and figuratively.
