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. ?

- The Turn of the Screw — boring, hated the writing

- 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 — 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 — 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 — 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.
