July Wrap Up

It’s the end of the month yet again. And I would say I had a pretty good month. I went to Pennsylvania, read several books, got some money earned for my new phone, and worked on a lot of blog post.

Wells Jaha might be the Chancellor’s son but he isn’t going to let that stop him from protecting his best friend and the person he loves the most.

  • The 100: Rebellion by: Kass Morgan

(I know! I went a whole month and only bought one book. I even went on vacation and my mom offered to buy me three other books)

Current Obsessions:

Lincoln Funko Pop – 
For a while now, I have been debating about getting one of these Funko Pop things. I’ve been saying I was going to buy a True Blood one and some Game of Thrones ones but I just keep ignoring it. I like to go and look at them but buying them have not been on the top of my list. We took a trip to a Books-A-Million about 45 minutes away from my house and they had a million of them. My mom and I had just finished The 100 and we both LOVE* Lincoln. As soon as I saw Lincoln, I knew that I needed to buy him. They also make a Clarke, Bellamy, Lexa, Octavia, and Raven but Lincoln had to be bought. I had to get out of the store before I bought it. On 4th of July, my dad, me, and my sister had to go to the store and my dad brought up the fact I never got anything for my straight A’s this year. Of course we had to go to Books-A-Million and buy Lincoln. He now sits on the top of my bookshelf. And I want to buy Clarke and Bellamy because #Bellarke

Continnum –
I started this show shortly after I watched The 100 and little did I know that Richard Harmon was going to be in the show. I’m not on time travel but this show is different. It follows this girl named Kiera Cameron who was from the year 2077 but it placed in the year 2012 when a group of prisoners time travel. It’s so freaking good and I just want to be part of this world and I want to be Alec’s girlfriend. Imagine that… 

The 100 – 
I think I have a problem. I talked about this last month. I read the book and I finished season 4. I follow way too many fan accounts. I even bought Lincoln. I LOVE THIS SHOW. It is so much fun to watch and it makes my heart die, especially since the ending of season 4 broke my heart. I found some of my new favorite actors and actresses so thank you. The show follows these 100 prisoners who are sent down to Earth after a nuclear war occurred. It is very similar to the premise of the book but Glass isn’t a character in the show. And I will always ship Bellarke no matter what happens. Even if they are only best friends.

Game of Thrones – 
I have watched a lot of TV Shows this month as you can see. It’s not a bad thing but it isn’t a good thing. And I’m being generous this month on this list. But the final season of Game of Thrones started and I am so excited for this season. If you follow me on Twitter, you will see my basically rant on and on about everything episode about how perfect it is so make sure you follow me. (I also tweet out random things) Even though Jon Snow and Sansa Stark are basically like brother and sister, I will always ship them. I mean they are from the ‘Stark’ family but it wouldn’t be the first time siblings hooked up. *Cough Cough* But this show is the literal heaven and the theme song can seem annoying but I will never grow old of it. 

Overall, I would say I had a pretty good month. I read 9 books, watched 7 movies, and endless tv shows. Next month is the start of school so the number of shows, movies, and books might begin to go down due to not having so much time. But I’m excited to see where August leads me because I get my braces off! 

How was your July? What did you do fun? What was your favorite book you read? What about favorite show and movie watched? What do you have planned for August? When do you go back to school? Have you read any of these books or seen any of these movies or shows? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! 

Happy Reading,
unnamed

  1. I still feel broken by the way Lord of Shadows ended! After You has been in my TBR for quite some time and I think I might give it a try.
    As for GoT… what a season so far! This is gonna be epic!
    Have a great week!

    1. I’m so excited for next week’s episode of Game of Thrones already and it has been less than 12 hours since it aired!
      I will say that After You wasn’t as good as Me Before You but it was still a very sweet book to read. I hope you get the chance to read it soon. That ending of Lord of Shadows also broke me because I need to know the rest in this series! I don’t think I can wait until 2019 for the next book.
      Have a great week as well!

      1. I know… that tension between Daenerys and Jon Snow is… wow!
        I bought the latest book of Joni Moyes last week and I’ll probably buy After You, too. However my TBR is swapped this month!
        As for the third book of The Dark Artifices, I think the story will revolve around the Queen of the Seelie Court!

        1. I don’t even know how to start with the Daenerys ad Jon tension. That was, like you said, wow.
          I know what a swapped TBR looks like. Hope you can check it out sometime this year! 🙂
          I sort of hope that is the third book revolves around the Queen of the Seelie Court because I secretly really enjoy her. Yes, she is insane and all but she is amazing.

  2. Congrats on a good month 🙂 GAME OF THRONES IS AMAZING, I LOVED LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE. Also, how did you like Lord of Shadows? I’ve been debating whether or not to continue the series

    1. Thanks! Game of Thrones was amazing last night. The one thing I didn’t like was the fact that Joffery kept being brought into the conversation and I don’t like him. Never have. Well, he’s dead but I never liked him.
      Lord of Shadows was good but it was not as good as Lady Midnight. If you didn’t care for Lady Midnight, just don’t even bother to read Lord of Shadows. You won’t be missing much.

      1. Yeah, honestly I was not surprised that it was Olenna who killed him. That part was awesome 🙂
        And yeah, I wasn’t a big fan of Lady Midnight, I feel like Cassie Clare is trying too hard to keep adding to the Shadowhunter world, but a lot of characters and plots seem recycled from previous books.

        Liked by 1 person

        1. I wasn’t shocked it was Olenna either. She was always something else.
          Cassie Clare seemed to recycle a few more characters and plots from other books in Lord of Shadows. The only thing that really made me want to continue reading was Malec.

    1. The Help and The Proposal are two of my favorite movies out there. I might cry every time I watch them. I keep telling myself to one day watch Clue because I haven’t seen it (it’s hard for me to wrap my head around that too) but I just haven’t!
