Where have you been, Thero?

The reason why there hasn’t been a lot of activity on the this blog in the past week is due to the real world (I know, how inconvenient). But don’t worry, normal service will resume next week. I do have review for Stardew Valley which will be posted on the Upon Completion blog this Friday. The Fantasia post for the Disney Challenge will posted next week.

Once again, apologies for the delay and hopefully I’ll see you here soon!


Humble Monthly March Bundle…Unboxing?

So I have a thing about subscription boxes. I love the surprise of opening a box full of goodies that you have no idea what’s going to be inside. Now I’m a little bit of a gamer, so when I stumbled upon Humble Monthly Bundle, I was sold.

So what is Humble Monthly Bundle? It’s a bundle of digital video games that you can download on the first Friday of the month. Apart from one (or maybe two) games, the rest of the contents are a secret until that Friday. I figured that this would be a great way for to play games that are slightly different to what I usually play. So without further ado, here is the contents of the March bundle!

February’s Reading Round-Up.

I’ll be honest with you guys, I didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted to in February. I blame it on Disney films,Steam video game sales and Humble bundle. I claim no responsibility. This means I am slightly behind on my reading challenge. But fear not, for I believe March will be a much better reading month. Or at least I hope so…

6359544The first book I read this month was  The Greatest Show On Earth by Richard Dawkins. This book was a bit different to the other books I usually read, as its non-fiction. It was actually lent to me by a work colleague and despite not being a book I would usually read, I found rather interesting. It’s all about the argument for the theory of evolution and it pretty much covers every scientific argument for it. This book was really easy to read, even with when explaining rather complex science, with a rather humorous tone at points. If you want a book that delves into the theory of evolution, I would recommend this as a great starting point.

The other books belong in the same series: The Lies of Locke 2171498Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch. I explained in my January reading round-up post that The Lies of
Locke Lamora
was like Robin Hood meets Ocean’s Eleven. It was amazing and certainly is one of my favourite fantasy novels  Red Seas Under Red Skies is more Locke Lamora but with pirates. And one thing I love (along with Eevees and Moogles) are pirates. Seriously stick a pirate in a video game/book/film and you’ve pretty much got me sold. I would definitely recommend these books to anyone who wants a fantasy book about incredibly likeable thieves and I ‘ll certainly be picking up the other books in the series at some point.

So that’s February’s reading, like I said, I didn’t get much reading done but what I did read I thoroughly enjoyed so it wasn’t all bad. Currently, I’m reading The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien which is not like The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings but looks to be quite interesting. Anyway, I’ll see you next month for another update!
