I love getting to spend time with my nephew and since he started school I don’t see him as much but man every time I do I wind up sick. It’s as though sometimes when he’s hanging off me I can actually see the germs.
I think there’s something worse about summer colds. It’s like the whole world is so damned bright and you just want to crawl under the covers.
I actually was pretty reasonable with my book buying last month. I did some organizing instead. Which is good because upcoming releases this Fall… well, good-bye paycheck on October 2nd alone!
Needless to say I didn’t go to the movies since The Meg but again there’s a bunch of stuff upcoming so I’m telling myself I’m saving up.
I rewatched Snow White and the Huntsman for Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron whose great in that role. Furiosa aside I think I like Theron best when she’s being wicked.
I also love Laggies I finally just caved and bought it and then realized its on Netflix. Anyway it has Sam Rockwell and one of my favorite little movie make out sessions.
Holy crap I watched some good tv this month! I finished up the first season of the Last Airbender and will definitely be continuing. I think I actually love every single character in that show.
Also developed a bit of a crush on Matt Smith and fell in love with The Crown – an honest opinion while I liked Smith as Doctor Who my Doctor will always be Nine (Christopher Eccleston) and while Amy Pond is my favorite companion I think the best companion season was Donna. But that’s a post for another day!
I wasn’t entirely in love with Sharp Objects but damn the acting was amazing especially in the finale! Assuming Patricia Clarkson and Eliza Scanlen both go for Supporting Actress I won’t be able to decide. They should split it down the middle.
Also halfway through Killing Eve with Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer which is another winner so far.
I did finish 21 books this month. Standouts include:
I also enjoyed Little Fires Everywhere, The Accidentals (by Sabrina Bowen), The Rebel Waves and The Light Fantastic (Discworld.) As well as participating in Classicsathon which I really enjoyed.
Like I said earlier so many good books are coming! I hope everyone enjoys the last days of summer 🙂
