I Created A Bookstagram…

I am a reader. I’ve always been a reader. Yet, since I have become a teacher I feel that I haven’t been reading for pleasure as much as I used to. Sure, I read heaps of essays and educational related material but I don’t always read simply for the joy of finding new friends in their own adventures.

For the last few years I have set myself a goal on Goodreads.com. Last year I read 35 books and this year I have set myself the goal for 50. (Secretly, I am hoping that I will read more than this…) And I’m excited to see how many books I manage to get through.

Why I loved Wonder Woman.

I will be the first to admit that I am not as knowledgeable about Wonder Woman as I am about Batman and that side of the DC universe. Of course I remember watching re-runs of the 1970s show and I loved watching the Justice League cartoons when I was younger and, although I know about her character and the basics of her story I never seemed to get as invested as I feel like I should. I guess seeing her as a background character more than an equal had a strange effect on me.

I’m righting that wrong, though.

Wonder Woman’s “cameo” in Batman vs Superman was the highlight for me and when I learned that they were making a Wonder Woman film I began to research into her history. The more I read the more excited I became. Of course there is so much to her history that I don’t know but I’m excited to find out.

Now, onto the review.

I. Loved. This. Film.

My mum loved this film. So far, all my friends who have seen it have loved it.

Here there be spoilers.
