Bubble

The story is set in Tokyo, after bubbles that broke the laws of gravity rained down upon the world. Cut off from the outside world, Tokyo has become a playground for a group of young people who have lost their families, acting as a battlefield for parkour team battles as they leap from building to building.

Title: バブル (Hepburn: Baburu) – Bubble

Year: 2022

Where? Netflix. 📺

What is it? A movie. 📽️

Genres: Post-apocalyptic, YA, adventure.

Alright, so I sometimes do Anime related ones here as you might know. And Bubble deserved an entry.

It’s one of the best animated movies I’ve watched in the past three years. So charming, so heart throbbing and heartbreaking, and lovely and wowing, all at the same time.

Jake Sully

Hello, dearies! 💖

Almost the end of the year, and some of this time you think back to what you read, watched or did. Mostly you cannot remember or think it was not this year. For months I cannot remember what I did because it was a mesh of months for me.

But I can try to remember for you, and this top shows of 2022 that I watched.

Book Characters to Hug

“He had known this was inevitable.”
The Queen’s Army

Hello, dearies! Welcome! 🤗📚

I know you like these characters as much as I do, if you don’t then you should, for real, go read these books and fall for these characters, it’s worth it.

If you are just curious, be prepared for a rambling of almost epic proportions. This post will probably make no sense, and this is a warning to bail while you can.

Thank you for staying! 💖

At times, I feel the uncontrollable need to reach inside a book, pull the characters out and hug them, bare in mind I’ll keep to the male ones, just because that’s how it is.

Flashback: Downton Abbey (TV)

Happy Friday, dearies! ❤

Another week has gone by, and here we are with a new Flashback, this time for this amazing show that I do not get tired of re-watching.

Downton Abbey. Haven’t done a Flashback Friday in a while, so it deserves to be an incredible one, and I think I chose a good story and show. There are movies, yes, but this one is about the TV Show that aired from 26 September 2010 – 25 December 2015 on ITV. 📺

The Final Girl Support Group

A mystery? Yes, it sort of was, but was it horror? Not really. This book dives into the mind of a Final Girl, literally. But that’s just one opinion.

3⭐

Author: Grady Hendrix 

Genre: Horror, Thriller, Fiction, Mystery

Well, I have my doubts about the horror tag or thriller, it’s more Mystery and Drama than anything else.

Hello, dearies! 📽

This one it’s more like a movie than a book, and you find yourself thinking about all the horror movies you watched in the past, and trying to pair those with the characters in the book rather than paying attention to the storyline.

Classroom of The Elite

Students of the prestigious Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School are given remarkable freedom—if they can win, barter, or save enough points to work their way up the ranks!

Yōkoso Jitsuryoku Shijō Shugi no Kyōshitsu

ようこそ実力至上主義の教室へ

(lit. “Welcome to the Classrooms Where Merit is Paramount”)

Author: Shōgo Kinugasa and illustrated by Shunsaku Tomose

Anime directed by Seiji Kish

Genres: Suspense, Psychological, Slice of Life, YA, Drama

Where? Crunchyroll but only in English for now.

Kon’nichiwa, dearies! ⭐️

I haven’t enjoyed an Anime in a while, but this one had me glued to the screen, and the best was that the second season had just aired this year, so I got to see both in one go, problem now is that I’ll have to wait for season 3. Or I can read the Light Novel and not wait for that, so I bought the first one, it’s waiting on my Kindle.

After saying that, let’s recap on Classroom of the Elite, an anime that makes you doubt everyone and start saying, repeatedly, don’t trust them.

Daisy Darker

This is the first audiobook I ever listened to, I don’t know if I’ll go back for another. On Daisy Darker? I don’t know if I’ll come back for more books from this author.

Author: Alice Feeney

Genres: Suspense, Drama, Thriller (?)

⭐⭐⭐

I give credit when and where credit is due.

Hello, dearies! 🐚

A new month is here, and only now am I publishing a new one, but the days just blend together lately.

Daisy Darker was my first audiobook, and half of the time I thought, I could be reading this instead of listening and it’ll be faster and perhaps a bit more interesting. But that is not part of the review, just a thought about audiobooks.
