Monthy List: December 2017

In the spur of the moment- me being bored out of my mind; I wanted to create a list of notable books/graphic novels/movies/tv shows/music I want to check out in the upcoming month. This time, it's December.


Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills | December 5th
Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes | December 1st 

Emma Mills is a constant. You can always count on her to write contemporary versions of classics. 

I haven't read Crystal Storm (book 5) but I'm positive I'll get to it this month. This series has been a pleasant surprise. 

Graphic novels

White Sand Volume 2 by Brandon Sanderson | December 6th

I still need to read volume 1 but I will get to it. I haven't read it before mostly because I don't like to wait. 


Star Wars: The Last Jedi directed by Rian Johnson | December 15th
The Shape of Water directed by Guillermo del Toro | December 8th

Ya'll! I've been waiting for The Last Jedi for two years. I've been on the Star Wars tumblr tag ever since I've heard Adam Driver got the role. After The Force Awakens came out I got obsessed in record time and would read fan theories on the daily basis. 

The Shape of Water seems weird but I love weird. Metascore and early reviews have been positive which only makes me want to see it more. 

TV Shows

Runaways!!!! Even though the show premiered in late November I think I'll binge it in December. I've read the comics when they first came out so waiting a couple of more weeks till I get the chance to see it means nothing. And if you're a fan of Rainbow Rowell you'll be glad to hear she's writing the new chapters of this amazing story. The first 3 issues are already out so check them out. 

December releases are pretty underwhelming but I still have a new Star Wars episode. I'm just glad the wait is finally over. 

06 November 2017

Monthly List: November 2017

It's been a while since our last post, here on YA Fanatic. In the spur of the moment- me being bored out of my mind; I wanted to create a list of notable books/graphic novels/movies/tv shows/music I want to check out in the upcoming month. This time, it's November.


Renegades by 

Renegades' cover is giving me Tron vibes! Can't wait! I love my adventurous sci-fi novels! 

It's been a long, long time since I've read the Mara Dyer trilogy. Now, it's Noah's time! I am loving the cover as well! It makes me wonder in what kind of mess have these two gotten themselves into this time. I see ember flying around and heavy smoke. Hmmm... I smell danger. 

Unearthed ebook is coming out in November and the hardcopies are out in January 2018. Why? I have no clue. Maybe Goodreads librarian made a mistake during editing. I have been more into sci-fi books since late 2016 so I'm excited for this Unearthed

Red Rising Saga: Sons of Ares by Pierce Brown
Locke & Key Volume 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill
Southern Cross Volume 1 by Becky Clooonan

I've been neglecting my graphic novel collection this year so I'm trying to fix things by reading them more in November and December.

Sons of Ares is a prequel to the Red Rising Saga which blew me away in 2016, so if you've missed this, grab your copies. I'm still waiting for the full volume. It makes the reading so much easier and it's cheaper.

Next we have Locke & Key which is a popular graphic novel from 2003. I didn't get the chance to read it before Halloween but I haven't forgotten about it. It got onto my radar after I read about the Hulu pilot option. Hope it works out for this series this time since it was suppose to happen in 2011.

Image Comics is my fave comic publishing house and their titles speak to me the most so there's always going to be one of their comic on my to read list. This time it's Southern Cross, a space mystery.  I did read the first two issues when they first came out but stopped for some reason. I don't know why because the artwork and coloring are amazing. I especially like the way eyes are drawn. They are so full of life. Beautiful! 


Reputation by Taylor Swift | November 10th

Now, I'm not someone who sits around, waiting for an album to drop but I am waiting for this one. I've listened to all of Taylor's albums but the one that made me a true fan was 1989. I love that album so much. I think it has to be one of my all-time favorites. 

Science Fiction by Brand New

This is not a new album. It's been out since August but I recently discovered it and it's been on repeat since then. It's playing in my car, while I'm doing my chores and even when I'm cozy, in bed. It's sad to say goodbye to the band. 2018 will be their last active year. Brand New, thank you for 18 years of great music.
