So… August has arrived, July has been and gone, and I couldn’t be happier. One step closer to autumn (or fall, depending on where you’re from, sorry Australia having to deal with spring). As a strong hater of the summer seasons, I can’t wait for it to get colder. Anyway, July was the month I really got back into reading and blogging and have fallen back into one of my favourite routines so there’s a lot for me to talk about!
Fangirl, I absolutely adored, for obvious reasons. I haven’t seen a single bad review on Fangirl! I only read it this month but I feel like I want to read it again very soon.
Lumberjanes was my favourite graphic novel of the month! It was such a good, heart-warming story of friendship and supernatural beings, you can find my book review for it here!
Top Blog Posts:
I wrote quite a bit this month, but I think my favourite posts (aside from the book reviews linked above) are:
Make sure you go and have a read, they’re full of great books!
The album I want to give a special mention to is Ultralife by Oh Wonder. I’ve been listening to this album on repeat for the past month, it was only released in June but I’m obsessed!
When I’m not listening to Ultralife, I’m listening to this very strange selection of songs:
Your Love by Middle Kids
Darling by Real Estate
Sweep Me off My Feet by Pond
Used To Be My Girl by The Last Shadow Puppets
Only Memories Remain by My Morning Jacket
Love Really Hurts Without You by Billy Ocean
Suspicious Minds by Elvis Presley
She’s On My Mind by JP Cooper
Someone To You by BANNERS
Don’t Matter Now by George Ezra
Anyway, on to TV shows! As you all know, season 7 of Game of Thrones started a couple of weeks ago and it’s living up to it’s very high expectations. I’m absolutely loving it!
The other series I’ve been obsessed with is Grimm. Grimm is, essentially, a homicide detective drama twisted with fantasy and supernatural themes and is based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales so I’m 100% here for it. I’ve only just started it but I love it already.
I don’t think I’ve watched any new movies this month so nothing to report there!
So there’s a very brief summary of my favourite things this month! Let me know in the comments what you’ve been loving recently!
Do you have any series/movie recommendations for me?
