Monthly Entertainment Recap: February

Hello! Pop culture and entertainment rule my life. I decided that it would be fun to do a little recap of all the things I consumed each month:

This has been kind of a shitty month. I’ve had a migraine for 16 days straight, so it’s been hard to do anything that requires concentration. I wish I would have watched more movies—or better movies this month (same goes for TV)

BOOKS!

39986808A Danger to Herself and Others by Alyssa Sheinmel
This is a book I received from NetGalley and the review is here! ♥♥♥♥

35526663

 

Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills
This is a quintessential YA summertime novel. I LOVED the dialogue and the connection between this friend group. They were so authentic. So quick. Their banter made this book for me, it was smart and funny. It saved the weak plot. This is a silly little thing, but I loved that Emma Mills made marching band cool. Taking something stereotypically lame like marching band and making it positive. ♥♥♥♥

Comics Will Break Your Heart by Faith Erin Hicks
Not the biggest fan, despite the adorable cover. NetGalley review here!♥

39803890

 

In Paris With You by Clémentine Beauvais
This was just okay. I liked the overall story, I just wish it was done a little better. It might be because it was translated from French and maybe things just didn’t get translated correctly. This is about a couple who experienced a significant summer together in their teens running into each other ten years later. ♥♥♥

You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman
Another NetGalley review! ♥♥♥♥

35068618

 

On The Come Up by Angie Thomas
Yes, girl! This was amazing! What else would expect from Angie Thomas? This follows our girl Bri as she struggles with breaking through the rap game and keeping her family away from homelessness. Angie Thomas is so spectacular when it comes to writing strong female protagonists as well as giving us such a profound sense of place. I feel like I’m standing on the corner with Bri waiting for the bus. ♥♥♥♥♥

Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay
Boy, did this wreck me. I listened to this on audiobook—which Roxane Gay recorded herself—and I just really related to so much of it. This memoir goes through  what the catalyst was that started her unhealthy relationship with food and body. ♥♥♥♥♥

 

TV:

Big Mouth Valentine’s Day Special
Perfect. Such a great idea and executed perfectly.

MOVIES:

I have no opinion on these movies except that I was not seriously watching Little Italy. It was the movie of the week How Did This Get Made, the bad movie podcast.
