I read quite a bit this month but it was all so spread out throughout the month that I feel like I hardly read anything. It was up and down with ratings, but for the most part not too bad. 4 books, 4 comics, 4 volumes of a manga series, and 1 short story. Not bad, not bad at all.
No five star reads this month but my favorite were definitely Golden Son and Steelheart. Both were so action packed and fantastic.
Hana Yori Dango (Japanese ‘Boys Over Flower’):
I despise the manga series, but I binge watched the crap out of this Japanese adaptation and I absolutely love it! I actually prefer this version over the Korean one. Blasphemous, I know but this just has so much charm and it didn’t take me as long to fall in love with this one. Everything works in this for me.
The entire cast is so wonderful, especially the gorgeous, beautiful, dreamy actor that plays Domyoji.
What Happened, Miss Simone? (Netflix):
Not a film, but a documentary and one of the best I’ve ever seen. Nina Simone was a force to be reckon with. She had her demons and struggles and this documentary holds back no punches in regards to that. My goodness, talk about a talented and revolutionary woman. She was so blunt and in your face and she made absolutely no apologies about it. I love that this had actual interviews, sound bits and performances from Miss Simone herself so you really got to see her story from the beginning and hear it from her and the ones close to her. If you want the true Nina Simone experience, just watch this documentary. She was a rebellious, iconic, revolutionary, unapologetic dark skinned black woman.
Q Is by Nu’est
For whatever reason, I didn’t get into this mini album when it first came out. It just slipped completely under my radar until the middle of March and I’m now obsessed with it. Every single song on here is really good and I love the sound of this EP. It’s very heavy on the R&B side and I’m all about that. It’s still really pop but it’s a great blend. My favorite songs on this are 사실 말야 VVITH & 여왕의 기사 Overcome which is the lead single.
A Delicate Sense by Fiestar
This was a fantastic comeback for Fiestar! I was not a fan of their last EP, Black Label so I was a bit hesitant but they definitely delivered! I skip absolutely no songs on this album and I love them all so much. I also really love the sound they went with this time; it has such a grown and sexy vibe to it. I could seriously go on and on about this album. It was hard picking favorites since they are all so great but I managed to narrow it down. I of course have two favorites and they are Mr. Black & 갈증 Thirst
I am K-Pop trash, sorry. Let me know what your favorite things were in March and what you read. And don’t forget to link me to your wrap up!
