What If…? Season 1 (2021) Spoiler Review & Discussion | The MCU continues! ๐Ÿคฏ๐ŸŒŸโค

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! I’ve been really loving watching and reviewing the Disney+ MCU tv shows this year so this is my latest review since What If…? just finished a few days ago! I really enjoyed this one (though not as much as I expected to) so it has me very excited for season 2!

This is the part of my review where I remind everyone that all the thoughts and opinions in this blog post are just that, thoughts and opinions. No hate just because you might disagree! Iโ€™d love to know why in the comments (as long as you can be nice about it!)

You can find my reviews for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier here and Loki Season 1 here.

Let me know in the comments what you thought of the show and I canโ€™t wait to hear your thoughts on the points I talked about! And let me know if you want to see more posts like this in the future!

MY OCTOBER TBR | I’m going Christmas crazy! ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m showing you all my tbr for this coming month! In September I hit a bit of a snag and got into a reading slump but I’m on my way out of it now and excited to get reading. I’m very much trying to distract myself with the thought that Christmas is coming soon so yes, I do know we haven’t had Halloween yet but we don’t actually celebrate that in Australia, so I’m moving right on to the December festivities! Don’t be suprised if there are a lot of Xmas books and movies in my wrap up!

Also, just a reminder that The Hoemance Book Club is reading A Pizza My Heart this month and I can’t wait to read it with you all! We had an absolute blast reading The Heart Principle last month!

I also wanted to mention that since I donโ€™t do book recommendation posts quite as much on my blog anymore I have started doing them over on the Hoemance Book Club instagram account and I have some really cool posts planned for over there! You can also find us here on Twitter.

SEPTEMBER WRAP UP | MY WORST READING SLUMP ALL YEAR ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜ข

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog and welcome to my September reading and watching wrap up! This month was all about doing uni work, dog sitting and for some reason, getting really obssessed with Modern Family. This is a really long-winded way of saying that I got myself into a reading slump and then reader’s guilt really set in and I was in it for the long haul! I’ve managed to evade any really bad slumps this year so I was definitely unprepared for this and it felt awful! I’m so used to haveing an audiobook on everywhere I go that it felt genuinely strange to click onto Spotify instead!! I also chose not to commute a whole tonne this month because of Covid which I’m sure also had an impact on my reading.

Okay, so the time is finally here! Let’s talk about the latest instalment in the MCU – Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings!
