Hello, July! || Playlists, Aesthetics and a June Recap || Life & Literature: Ep. 3

June slipped away, in all honesty. It’s almost as though this month was non-existent and we’re already in July. Halfway through the year. We’re still isolated a year later and I keep reminding myself that there is still hope. June was absolutely a blur. I know I say that so much, but I started out in a most terrible reading slump.

Nevertheless I did have a lot of fun and I kept up with the blogosphere (for the most part, I suppose!) I had my whole family over and the summer weather is absolutely gorgeous here. 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).

Well that’s enough rambling! Let’s talk books, movies, songs and life!

Hey everyone! Looking for something to watch on TV that’s fun and entertaining? Well, look no further! Here’s my personal list of favourite TV shows and movie series for fans of YA books, for tweens and teens and for anyone who’s confused as to what to watch!

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).

150+ Followers Special: Reacting to Your Assumptions

Hey everyone! We (sighs dramatically) are in the midst of a major Covid crisis. But we just reached 150+ followers! (This was originally a 100 follower post, but—all credits to my unmatched procrastination skills—we reached 150 just in time for this post!!)
