Wrap Ups and Hauls

August Wrap Up

Hi everyone I hope you’ve all had an amazing August. I wasn’t up to too much in August as I spent the beginning of the month ill and the last two weeks back at placement but in between I manged to have a few good nights out with my family and friends, mostly to the cinema.

Books

Despite being busy with placement the passed two weeks and being ill I managed to read 9 books and I DNFed 1.

I also read The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. This is one of the darkest books I have ever read but also one of the best fantasies I have had the pleasure of reading an I loved every second of this book. I gave this 5 out of 5 stars. Review to come.

Next I read The Earth, My Butt and other Big Round Things and The Universe is Expanding and So Am I by Carolyn Mackler.

Movies

Mamma-Mia!-Here-We-Go-Again-2018-movie-poster

I have seen Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again 3 times this month as it is amazing. It’s cheesy AF but I loved ever moment of it. It’s such a great feel good movie and it’s on par with the first film though some of the details aren’t quick true to the first one.

I also saw Ant Man and the Wasp. This is another awesome Marvel movie and I enjoyed this one a lot more than the first.

I saw Hotel Transylvania 3. I loved this movie just as much as the previous two and I have been feeling the Halloween vibes ever since I watched it.

This month I also had the pleasure of watching To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. I haven’t read the book so I can’t comment on how true to the original it was but I really enjoyed it. It’s such a cute romcom, I feel in love with the characters and we definitely need more diverse movies like this.

TV Shows

This month I watch season 6 of Orange is The New Black. While I love this show I do think that the first few series are the best.

Music

This month I have done nothing but listen to the Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again soundtrack on repeat.


How has your month been?
