days past: a june ’21 recap || playlists, books & movies || life & literature ep. 3

June disappeared, in all honesty. It’s almost as though this month was non-existent and we’re already in July. Halfway through the year.

All the flowers are in bloom, we had, like 3 birthdays (which meant 3 different cakes, haha!) and we’ve been out on long walks through the gardens. June and July have the best weather in the whole year (except for February and April).

Between the ages of 12 and 14, there seem to be very few options for us tweenagers on Disney+ and Netflix. Everything seems to be too young and schmaltzy or too inappropriate! Today’s (rather long) post will be covering the main four genres I watch: Sitcoms, (my personal fave!) Mystery, Fantasy and Fiction (with magical realism).
