June Wrap: so little time, so little reading

June was a weird, slow month. I DNFed half of everything I picked up! Oh, well. I blame the summer reading program, classes starting back, and my new gaming PC. 😍

❌ DNFs:

  • The Turn of the Screw β€”Β boring, hated the writing
  • Orpheus Girl β€”Β too triggering, disliked the writing
  • My Favorite Thing is Monsters, Vol. 1 β€”Β enjoyed the premise but couldn’t follow the art style; it kicked my ADHD into major overdrive!
  • Birthday β€”Β sooooo many slurs
  • My Absolute Darling β€”Β library loan expired
  • Her Silhouette, Drawn in Water β€”Β such poor writing and the entire story was incredibly one-dimensional
  • Fake Blood β€” boring
  • Victor LaValle’s Destroyer β€”Β SUPER triggering & I wasn’t having it this month
  • Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Vol. 1 β€”Β boring & I disliked the art style


Watched this Month:

  • Friday the 13th (1980) β€” 3.5 ⭐
  • Friday the 13th Part II β€” 3 ⭐
  • Friday the 13th Part III β€” 2 ⭐
  • Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter β€” 2.5 ⭐
  • Friday the 13th: A New Beginning β€” 2.5 ⭐
    • I had’t watched these in ages and decided to have a weekend Friday the 13th movie marathon. Ridiculousness ensued and left me wondering why so many horror fans I know think this series was somehow superior to what’s being made today… That said, I’ll probably watch the rest in July.
  • The Perfection β€” 5 🌟
    • On the other hand, the rest of my horror viewing in June was sheer flawlessness. Did you know this movie was queer as hell?! NOBODY TOLD ME IT HAD QUEER GIRLS.
  • Us β€” 5 🌟
    • I can’t believe I didn’t go see this in theatres. Wow. WOW. Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong’o are goals for life and I adored everything about this.


Listened to this Month:

I didn’t listen to much music this month β€” mostly just audiobooks and the NoSleep podcast.


Played this Month:

  • The Sims 4
    • I always come back to you, Sims…
  • Fran Bow
    • This was a new purchase from just a few days ago and I’m obsessed. SO CREEPY.
  • The Darkside Detective
    • Finally revisiting this one to play the bonus content! This is easily one of my favorite games ever. It’s so hilarious.
