JUNE WRAP UP | I’m in a reading slump…

wrapupfeature1

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog!

This month has been a whole-ass wild ride, I can’t believe I’ve officially been socially distancing and staying home (not working, not going on campus for Uni) for 3 and a half months. Absolutely wild! The last couple of months have been very reading heavy for me but this month I really started to slow down. I’ve been having a lot of trouble in general, with sleeping and blogging but I start my next trimester of uni at the start of next month (online, of course) so hopefully, my schedule will start to get more in control and back on track!

So, yeah, I didn’t read a whole lot compared to previous months, but I’m still happy with the actual content I consumed, and I managed to watch a lot of movies and tv shows! This month I had plans to watch all of the marvel movies but I ended up really not being in the mood for the MCU, and instead I ended up getting SUPER invested in Batman instead so be prepared for a lot of Batman in the movies section of my wrap up! πŸ˜‚πŸ¦‡

  • The Sea of Monsters [01/06] – πŸŒ»πŸŽ§πŸ” – 3 ⭐ – I can see why this isn’t everyone’s favourite in the series but I had a total blast reading it!
  • Scarlet [02 – 03/06] – πŸŒ»πŸŽ§πŸ” – 3 ⭐ – I’m so happy to be back in this world, these characters and this world are like a comfort to me now!
  • White Fragility [04/06] – 🎧 – 4 ⭐ – Informative but there are better resources by black authors that we should be reading.
  • The Titan’s Curse [05/06] – πŸŒ»πŸŽ§πŸ” – 3 ⭐ – Not my favourite in the series but I still really enjoyed it!
  • Cress [06 – 08/06] – πŸŒ»πŸŽ§πŸ” – 3 ⭐ – I didn’t love this as much as I have in the past but I did still really enjoy it!
  • Beach Read [14 – 22/06] – 🌻🎧 – 3.5 ⭐ – Buddy read with Destiny – Unputdownable! A great romance but beware, this book isn’t all fun and games, it’s also an intense exploration of grief, fmaily and love!
  • The Glass House [11 – 12/06] – 🌻🎧 – 3 ⭐ – Buddy Read with Malka – I love how Emily St John Mandel writes stories and integrates her characters into eachother’s lives but something felt like it was missing from this one.

  • The Nanny Season 2 [14 – 16/06] – 4 ⭐ – My compliments to the chef!

  • Emma BBC Mini-Series [19 – 20/06] – 4 ⭐ – The best Emma adaptation I’ve ever seen. I highly reommend!
  • The Nanny Season 5 [19 – 21/06] – 3 ⭐ – Definitely not as good as the earlier seasons but, I’m still here so it can’t be that bad.
  • 365 DNI [21/06] – 1 ⭐ – The love interest in this movie makes Christian Grey seem like a normal, well-adjusted guy.

  • Batman Begins [28/06] – 4 ⭐ – I can’t believe I’ve never seen this before. I get the feeling I’m going to love Bale’s Batman!
  • The Dark Knight [28/06] – 5 ⭐ – The actual cinematic embodiment of the 100 emoji.
  • The Dark Knight Rises [29/06] – 3 ⭐ – This movie was honestly not great but at the same time I’m over here crying in the club bc of the batman. Honestly, this might be my favourite version of Bruce Wayne/ Batman. I only accept angst in relation to Batman and that’s a fact.

  2. I’m sorry that you’re in a reading slump, I hope July goes better reading-wise! Aaah, why would you subject yourself to Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief 😭😭 That movie is just…so bad. I’m shuddering just thinking about it. I hope you have a wonderful July!

    1. Haha, I’m starting to get out of it now!
      Honestly, that movie was a mistake and I should never have watched it because it just made me sad!

      Thanks Chana! πŸ’–πŸ’–
