Sunday Review – 1/7/2016

Wow, what a great week I had. I read a few great books, caught up with an old friend, and finally saw The 5th Wave! I actually really liked it and thought the movie was well done and stuck closely to the book. There were a few differences I didn’t like too much, but nothing that caused me to be riotous. Also, Liev Schreiber as Vosch makes me so happy. He is the perfect actor for that role. I love it.

Have you seen the movie yet? Thoughts?

Another thing that was pretty awesome that I did was sign up for my first subscription to a crate! I ordered myself a LootCrate (for all things nerdy), and I’m so excited to get it! This month’s theme is Deadpool and The Walking Dead. (At least that’s what I read, so hopefully that’s what I get! Either way, I’m still excited about it 😀 )

You have until the 19th to get your box this month, if you’re interested. If you are, it’d really help me out if you ordered through this link! http://looted.by/du2Bs

Anyway, back to the books.

    1. Yes, I thought it was really well done. My two main complaints were minor and didn’t really effect my admiration for the movie at all. I’m so happy it was disappointing!
