JUNE WRAP UP | rereading romance faves!

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! It’s officially the end of the month and can I just say… finally! This felt like such a slow month and I was also in a reading slump for the majority of the month. This was very much the kind of month where I just reread my favourite romances and didn’t really pick up anything else πŸ˜‚.

  • The Time Traveler’s Wife [02-08/06] πŸŽ§πŸ” – ⭐⭐.75 – An interesting and tragic portrayal of time travel with a romance that tried very hard not to look like grooming but still definitely was.
  • Divergent [09-10/06] πŸ”πŸŽ§ – ⭐⭐⭐ – A lot of fun, I definitely want to rewatch the movie now!
  • Boyfriend Material [14 – 15/06] 🌈🎧 – ⭐⭐⭐.5 – Very cute, I can’t wait for book 2!
  • Persuasion [16/06] πŸŽ§πŸ” – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – This is such a popcorn drama and I absolutely love it!
  • The Wall of Winnipeg and Me [17/06] πŸŽ§πŸ” – ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 – At this point, if I ever have any varying negative emotion I just automatically put this book on and suddenly I’m calm. This was officially the 5th time I’ve read this book and my 3rd read this year.

  • Top Gun: Maverick [05/06] ✨ – ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 – Genuinely such a good movie!
  • Jurassic World: Dominion [09/06] ✨ – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – There was too much going on but I was so starstruck by seeing Laura Dern and Sam Neill on-screen together again that I didn’t care.
  • Jurassic Park [10/06] πŸ” -⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – It’s still genuinely amazing to me that I can watch this after having already seen it so many times and any scene with a Velociraptor in it still scares me to my bones.
  • Jurassic Park The Lost World [11/06] πŸ” – ⭐⭐.5 – It’s a no from me.
  • Jurassic Park 3 [13/06] πŸ” – ⭐⭐⭐.5 – Genuinely awful CGI but I love this movie with my entire heart and soul.
  • title [date/06] emojis – stars – review
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife Season 1 [02 – 21/06] ✨ – ⭐⭐⭐.25 – A bit slow and has all the same problems as the book but, Theo James and Rose Leslie do such a wonderful job, that they do the show so many favours!

  • Father of The Bride [23/06] ✨ – ⭐⭐⭐ – Didn’t need to be remade but okay
  • POC The Curse of The Black Pearl [24/06] πŸ” – ⭐⭐⭐.5 – Absolutely iconic. I cannot believe how young Keira Knightley was when she filmed in this.
  • Anchorman [24/06] ⭐⭐⭐.5 – I feel like white dads must love this movie.
  • Anchorman 2 [24/06] ⭐⭐⭐ – This movie would have been nothing without Steve Carrell
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them [28/06] πŸ” – ⭐⭐⭐.5 – I’m ngl I just rewatched the scenes with the animals which was a surprisingly short amount of time.

  1. I read Persuasion just last month, and your description of it as a ‘popcorn drama’ made me actually laugh out loud! Congratulations on a very full month πŸ™‚
