July has come and gone. It’s almost Fall! Okay not really. August and September actually tend to be the most miserable of months in Southern California but I’m looking on the bright side here. Fall candles are out. Back to school shopping has started and the year is going by so fast I’ll blink and we’ll be changing the clocks.
I watched 10 films in July. A lot of them were old favorites like Jurassic Park, Sneakers and Aeon Flux. I wanted to see if they were still favorites. (Mostly they were.)
I also watched The Breadwinner which was an amazing beautiful film. And Infinity War is now streaming so Tony and Peter can break my heart continuously now. (Horrible thought though if Part 2 plays out like I think neither Tony and Peter or Steve and Bucky will ever see each other again!) 🙁
I only saw Ant-Man and the Wasp and Mission Impossible: Fallout in theaters and enjoyed them both. It’s been talked about how Tom Cruise continues not to age but really neither does Paul Rudd. My friend pointed out that they kind of look alike to. I have a theory they’ve been manufactured as some sort of AI/alien thing to take over the universe.
Which if that’s the case I’d like to request one of my own please…
And I would totally be on board with the take-over.
Speaking of people I’d like my own versions of Emmy Nominations came out this month and pretty much the only one I cared about, the only one I completely geeked out over is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau getting nominated for Jaime Lannister.
He should have bloody won for season three but that’s typical of Hollywood award shows. But then I got sucked into watching The Crown
Me: I have no desire to watch this show….
Me: Well, I’ll probably watch when Olivia and Helena take over the roles in season three.
Starts watching with my mom.
Me: Why can’t I stop watching this show?
And seriously if Matt Smith (Prince Phillip) is as good in season two as he has been in season one then he deserves to win it.
So naturally that means they’ll give it to Peter Dinklage again.
No offense to Tyrion fans but Dinklage has two and that character (whom I used to adore) has been annoying me ever since he announced he was, “the gift.” Dany deserves an award for not feeding him to the dragons last season. But I’ve digressed.
Definitely checkout The Crown and go Matt, Nikolaj and Vanessa Kirby at Emmy time!
I actually was reasonable with the book buying this month to. Until the last couple of days. And Book Depository must be shipping my orders from the North Pole or something so I’m not even counting that.
Challenge going well. I finished 21 books this month. 2 children’s collections, 2 books of shorts stories, 1 book of essays and 1 reread and 1 audible book. Plus I’m not sure what to classify It’s Your Universe as self-help? Inspirational? Biographical?
I also read 2 highly anticipated releases in Spinning Silver and Bright We Burn which concluded the Conquerers Saga. (Oh my God I finished another series!) Spinning Silver was probably the biggest disappointment of the month.
I also really enjoyed The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager and Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young.
That’s pretty much all my obsessions for July. I had something of a reading plan for August but literally already breaking it. Go me! I think the heats starting to get to me 🙂 Possibly going to start writing Aquaman fan fiction or a dream Emmy’s scenario where both Matt and Nikolaj win. Probably should get ready for work though!
Happy August to Everyone!
