TV SERIES/MOVIE REVIEWS.
This compendium was part of my yearly resolution and I’m glad to have finally got around to it. It revived my interest in the franchise, especially after I slowly got tired of the direction of the TV series. Now I’m just looking forward to cracking open the second compendium. 🥰
LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK.
It’s not the worse thing in the world but it failed to capitalize on an interesting premise by sticking to unoriginal coincidences…
TOP TV SERIES/MOVIE.
I’ve been meaning to revisit this classic as an adult, to give it what I call a “proper viewing” and I’m really happy that I did.
The Lion King (1994) is a beautifully structured story focused on the cycle of life and the dominance of one’s own past to build a better future for yourself and others.
The songs featured in this animated musical are also brilliant and further embellished the outstanding word plays throughout the movie.
5 stars outta 5.
The sequel to The Wolf’s Call is finally here. My thoughts on this one should be out soon! You can check out my review of the first book if you haven’t already here.
At the end of July, I hosted a secret giveaway to celebrate my five years of blogging. You can check out that post by clicking here, if you ever missed out on it. For the curious readers, I wanted to announce all three winners and confirm that they all safely received their awesome books! Here they are:
As for August. Holy sh*t. It sure didn’t feel like any month of August to me. I also felt like slowing down my reading and taking the month a bit more calmly too. I guess it was just one of those months where I needed to recharge myself for all the huge tomes I’m tackling before the end of the year heheh
For the first half of the month, it mostly flew by as I waited for the return of my significant other from her stay in Europe. On the same day when she was coming back, I also ended up going on a hike with friends for the first time in my life. It was quite the refreshing and challenging hike, if you ask me. We clearly didn’t know what we were getting into but we survived the journey and pushed our limits in terms of cardio! In fact, we were so into it, we did another one yesterday and enjoyed a much easier and quicker hike with a decent visual reward at the end too.
Sometimes, you need these unexpected activities to remind you that life is more than just a pandemic. But never forget it once you’re back to reality. 😉
Thank you all for checking out my monthly wrap-up and don’t forget to check out any posts that might interest you or that you might have missed out on!
