July Wrap-Up

What a month!

This was the busiest month of the year: Flew to Indiana for my grandmother’s memorial, had my birthday, best friend came to visit for a weekend followed by a short weekend trip to LA, plus two concert. I’m exhausted.

Although I didn’t read that many books, this was probably my most enjoyable month of the year. Not only did July give me a new Sarah Dessen book, I also read some incredible ARC’s—Say You Still Love Me by K.A. Tucker and How the Light Gets In by Katy Upperman. I also got to see some of my most anticipated movies, too.

GUYS! This show is so hilarious and ridiculous and I can’t handle it. But seriously, everyone watch this show!

Veronica-MArs-1

I was so pumped for a new season of Veronica Mars, and for the most part, I really loved it. I loved how we get to see how Veronica is a pretty flawed character and that finally, people were pointing it and not letting her get away with shit. And then the last five minutes of the final episode happened and I was LIVID. No spoilers, but I thought that was a really cheap shot and a stupid ending.

Oh goodness. I watched this all on the 4th of July because I was hopping on a plane the next day and knew I couldn’t leave the internet alone long enough to not get spoiled. There were a lot of things I really loved about it, but I don’t think it’s my favorite season. I love the kids’ progressions. The ending had me BALLING. I hadn’t cried that hard since watching Buffy or Angel. I kind of don’t want there to be a next season because I think it ended in a strong way, despite the end credit scene.

Movies:

All four movies, all five stars. Toy Story 4 got me really into my feels. I’ve always held a soft spot in my heart for Woody and Bo Peep, so I was kind of a blubbering mess by the end of it. I thought Yesterday was really fun and sweet—just what I expected from a Richard Curtis penned film. And we all know my feelings on The Lion King

Live Music:

When my best friend was in town, we went to see Fitz and the Tantrums and Young the Giant. We have seen Fitz together a few times now and kind of discovered them around the same time in college. Then as a birthday present, my parents got me tickets for Blink-182. The tour is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the album Enema of the State, the album that basically all I listened to during my adolescence and sparked my intense love for Blink-182. Both shows were really great and fun!
