Geeking Out About: December

Dec 13, 2016

You guys, Christmas is less than two weeks away! I've been watching holiday movies and loving the cold(ish) weather we've been having in Southern California so much that I haven't managed to get any gift shopping done yet...whoops. I guess I know what I'll be doing all weekend, haha.

Anyway, I managed to peel myself off of the couch long enough to put together a new Geeking Out About post! December is so busy with the holidays and the shopping craziness, but there are also tons of fun things going on. Here's what I'm currently geeking out about and what I'm looking forward to this month.

Pokémon Moon - Okay, of course Pokémon Moon tops my list. I played almost nonstop over the weekend and I'm completely loving the story! As far as I can tell, I'm almost done, but there have already been a few twists and turns so I'm not really sure how much is left. I highly recommend this game, whether you're a seasoned Pokémon fan or just beginning!

Mozart in the Jungle - If you've never seen this show, you're seriously missing out. Gael García Bernal is so adorable, and this show just keeps getting better and better. Amazon Prime released the third season on December 9th, so I've only gotten to see the first couple episodes but I'm hoping for big things to happen this season.

12 Dates of Christmas - One of my favorite cheesy holiday movies of all time. Amy Smart is always perfect, and who can resist Zach Morris from Saved by the Bell...right? Sadly, Netflix seems to have gotten rid of all of the classics like Christmas Cupid with Christina Milian and Holiday in Handcuffs with Melissa Joan Hart, so if you have any recommendations, I'd love to hear them!

Shadow and Bone - Okay, I realize this book is a few years old, but I just started it and I'm enjoying it so far. It's a pretty standard YA story, but I've heard that the series gets better so I'm excited to see what happens.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Yeah yeah, I know this is old too...but OH MY GOSH I love it so much! I played Wild World years ago and was obsessed so I knew once I got my new 3DS that I had to give New Leaf a go! So darn cute

Rogue One - Only three days away, people! I won't go out to see it when it premieres since I hate crowded movie theaters and all, but I'll definitely be seeing it soon. Who's seeing it opening day?!

Ever the Hunted - I've been hearing some great things about this new book by Erin Summerill. It's about seventeen-year-old Britta, who spends her days tracking criminals with her bounty hunter father. One day, her dad is killed and the alleged murderer is none other than the boy who broke her heart! There's a quest, dark magic, yada yada...sounds like something I'll enjoy, and man, the cover is gorgeous!

Doctor Who Christmas Special - This year's Doctor Who Christmas special seems a little odd, based on the super cheesy trailer. I'll watch it regardless because, I mean, it's Doctor Who! And how cool is it that this special will be based in New York?!

Passengers - I'm a huge sucker for sci-fi, so this movie definitely caught my eye. First off, Chris Pratt is in it, which is reason enough to watch anything, right? Really though, I love the premise. I've actually dreamt about walking up too soon during extended space that weird? Ah well.

Overwatch Holiday Event - Time for new holiday skins! The Overwatch holiday event patch drops today and I'm so excited to get home from work and play all night. I'm surprised nothing they had planned for the event leaked early (that I could find, at least), but it's pretty cool that everything is going to be a surprise this time around.

Over to you!

What have you been geeking out about lately? Let me know in the comments below, I'd love to geek out with you!
