So not only am I back to enjoying books but July proved to be the month where I got back into audiobooks as well. This past month I finished reading one and listened to five! FIVE AUDIOBOOKS! Who am I?!
So here’s what I read…
Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis, Read by Karen White
The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis-Graves
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han, Read by Laura Knight Keating
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang, Read by Carly Robins
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, Read by Jennifer Lim
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng, Read by Cassandra Campbell
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – While I thought this movie was NOT-BAD, I didn’t like it as much as the first one. Also, I thought it was a bit out of control when it came to the treatment of these dinos! I know they’re not real, but they’re real in my heart!
Ant-Man and the Wasp – This movie was as fun as I expected it to be. The real surprise for me was just how BADASS Evangeline Lilly is. I have a new girl crush. Paul Rudd was a delight as always and Michael Peña was just hilarious.
Whitney – What a heartbreaking portrait. While it celebrated all of her amazing accomplishments and her incredible voice, in the end, the way we lost her is just heartbreaking. I recommend it if you’re a fan of hers.
Mamma Mia! Here we go Again – OMG HOW FUN WAS THIS MOVIE! I found it delightful and touching. So much so that I cried at a couple different moments. I agree that for the most part it feeels like they wrote this movie around ABBA’s songs, but who cares? I don’t!
Thirty Seconds to Mars, Walk the Moon, K.Flay, and Welshly Arms – What an amazing show. The three opening acts really stole the show for me. I don’t know that I’ll go see 30STM again though. I’ve seen them a few times now and every time Jared Leto sings less and less. He spends a lot of his time saying “Everybody scream” – “jump! jump!” or getting the crowd to sing for him.
Hannah Gadsby: Nanette – This comedy special left quite the impression on me. I highly recommend you watch it. It’s more than just comedy.
The Handmaid’s Tale – I didn’t think the first season could be topped but I was wrong!! I continue to be impressed by the storytelling and the acting. WOW.
