Books read in August 2014

:bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and How to Find Them and Tales of Beedle the Bard [Reread] by J.K. Rowling
I finally got to read the first two Harry Potter spin-offs! And, having reread all of the main books earlier this year, I thought I might as well reread the Tales as well for good measure. I'm not too fond of the first two, mainly because most of the supposed excerpts from centuries-old historical testimonies are unrealistic. For example, that witch who witnessed the first game of Quidditch at some point in the Middle Ages seems to be thinking (and, to an extent, writing) like your average modern-day old lady next door. I get that these books were written for children (who you can't expect to read Middle English) and probably with a humorous intent but I was a little disappointed nonetheless. However, I completely support the theory that the five-legged creature in the Room of Requirement (mentioned in book 6) was a Quintaped. In my head-canon, Hagrid brought it in. xD

:bulletblue: Walden by H. D. Thoreau
This book is often quoted by a number of supporters of minimalist lifestyles, so I thought I'd give it a go. The problem I've found with this book is that while it does contain interesting philosophical ideas, those are drowned in poetical or factual descriptions that I sometimes found quite pointless. I was expecting some kind of philosophical essay, but now I doubt it was the main intent behind the book. In short, this book wasn't as inspiring to me as I thought it would be.

:bulletblue: Pokémon Adventures French re-release book 2
I don't have much to say about this one. I really like this series. ^^

Books read: 33/52 (+5)
Week 35/52
Next, I'd like to read some English-language children's classics. I've got a whole list of them! xD

Anime watched in August 2014

:bulletblue: Death Note (37 episodes)
I decided to watch Death Note because it's a classic. When I was first introduced to this anime a few years ago, I really disliked the fact that it was about a guy literally killing hundreds of people like it was a totally normal thing to do. I only liked "that Darkrai thing who eats apples" (Darkrai as in the Pokemon - don't they look related? XD). Now that I've actually watched the whole thing, I'm not sure what to think. I liked the attempt at conveying a philosophical message (the whole "Is it okay to kill criminals?" thing) but I wished the question was actually treated in depth rather than just asked casually from time to time like it is (I would have liked to see a character switch sides one way or another, for instance). Also, am I the only one who laughed out loud at the excessively dramatic storytelling? ^^"
Oh, and I ship L/Light (one-sided) and Rem/Misa (probably one-sided as well, shipped it before it became obvious xD). And possibly Mello/Near one way or another. XD
