Movies & TV Watched this Month:

  • The Incredibles 2 β€” 2.5 ⭐
    • I finally watched this, and I was so disappointed. It was a 1- or 1.5-star watch for me until the last 20 minutes.
  • A Simple Favor β€” 5 ⭐
    • AMAZING. A new favorite for sure. Blake Lively in those suits?Β Exuding dom-les energy? RIP me.
  • 10 Things I Hate About You β€” 4.5 ⭐
    • I fulfilled a missed rite of passage as a 90s kid by finally watching this and, no surprise, I adored it.Β 
  • The Final Destination β€” 3 ⭐
    • I think this was the only FD movie I hadn’t seen all the way through. It was probably my least fave in the franchise, but it had some fun moments.


Music I Loved This Month:

I finally stopped listening to flora cash for two seconds and went back to obsessing over Ice Nine Kill‘sΒ Silver Scream album, but I also spent a lot of the month reliving my glory days in a brand new way by developing an obsession with Neck Deep.

  1. I’ve been hearing that A Simple Favor was a really good movie and now your thoughts really make me want to watch it! Have you read the book as well? I’ve heard mixed reviews on that one but at least the movie has been mostly positive reviews! I also love that you read so much graphic novels! It makes me want to get back into it. Also, you make me want to read more contemporary books like The Kissing Test! Thanks Destiny ❀


  2. We both had our rite of passage for 10 Things I Hate About You! It’s funny we both talked about it and watched it around the same time. I already need to watch it again lol πŸ™‚ so glad you had a great reading month, especially with Sorcery


  3. I read Lucky Penny this month as well after you mentioned it in one of your previous posts and I really enjoyed it! I’m also so excited to see that you enjoyed The Right Swipe! I can’t wait to read that book! I got to meet the author at BookCon and she was so sweet!


  4. My Brother’s Husband was a delight to read! And I’ve never seen 10 Things I Hate About You yet, which is such a shame! I should really get on it, but hopefully with the right company. I’m also so excited for Sorcery of Thorns and I’m supposed to have won a copy but it hasn’t arrived yet so I’ll have to ask about it :((


  5. I’m so excited to read The Right Swipe and Sorcery of Thorns! I’m also really interested in Monstress and Infidel (I definitely don’t read enough Graphic Novels.) Sorry that this month wasn’t your most enjoyable (even if you had a few gems) — I hope June is going to be (even) better reading-wise. c:
