June wrap-up

This will be the first month I'm including tv shows and podcasts as well! June was also a great reading month:

  • Animal Farm (Complete novels #1) by George Orwell 5/5★ review
  • The Heir by Kiera Cass 4.5/5★ review
  • The Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum 5/5★ review
  • Keeping The Moon by Sarah Dessen 4.5/5★ review
  • City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare 5/5
  • Lying Out Loud (The Duff #2) by Kody Keplinger 3/5★ review
  • Looking For Alaska by John Green (re-read) 5/5★ review
  • Anna Karenina (first 175 pages out of 800) by Leo Tolstoy

 

As you can see I'm still reading Anna Karenina. I'm hoping to finish it this month!

 

What I've watched this month:

I've re-watched season 4 of One Tree Hill: it's one of my favorite tv shows and it was all about finish high school which I did last month as well, so it was very sentimental to watch haha.

 

I also started watching Suits and I've completed season 1 and 2. I really, really like this show so far and I cannot wait to continue!

 

I've watched one movie this month: I Love You. Beth Cooper. It's about this guy who has to give a graduation speech and he's in love with this girl but he never said anything to her and now it's his last change to do so. It was really funny! Here's the trailer:

 

 

I also decided to re-watch Gossip Girl. Now I'm on S01E6. :)

 

Podcast I've been listening to:

I've never listened to a podcast, but Karina made a video about her favorites and because I have to walk (I deliver post twice a week) for about 6 hours a week I decided to listen to one. I've listened to the first four episodes of Call Your Girlfriend and I'm loving it so far! Is about two friends/journalists that live a few miles (a few, lol) from each other and they talk about stuff.

 

Hoe many books have you read this month and which one was your favorite?

Review: Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen

Summary:

Colie expects the worst when she's sent to spend the summer with her eccentric aunt Mira while her mother, queen of the television infomercial, tours Europe. Always an outcast -- first for being fat and then for being "easy" -- Colie has no friends at home and doesn't expect to find any in Colby, North Carolina. But then she lands a job at the Last Chance Cafe and meets fellow waitresses Morgan and Isabel, best friends with a loving yet volatile relationship. Wacky yet wise, Morgan and Isabel help Colie see herself in a new way and realize the potential that has been there all along.

My opinion:

I really liked this book! It's a really important story, with a good lesson for (young) girls/teenagers. Because of that I gave it 4.5 stars. An other reason why I gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 is because I'm not going to re-read it (I only give 5 stars to books I can re-read over and over again) but it's really worth to read!

 

What is your favorite Dessen book?

Bookhaul #10

Bookhauls are so lovely! I have bought a few more books since my last bookhaul than I usually do, but this will also be my last bookhaul for next two months. Currently I own 25 books and I have exams as well so I won't be able to read that much anyways. Anyways, here are the books I recently bought:

 

1. Insurgent by Veronica Roth and A Tale Of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

I bought Insurgent because I didn't own this book at all and the movie came out recently, so I wanted to re-read it before I go see the movie. I have Divergent in the collector's edition as well so I wanted to have Insurgent in this edition also and I was afraid this edition is going to be sold out soon. 

 

A Tale Of Two Cities is a classic I wanted to read for a while now and then I heard that The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare is based on this classic. You may have seen that I wanted to start this series this month, but when I heard that it is based on this classic I wanted to buy and read this first. I want to collect all of his books that are on the Rory Gilmore reading challenge in this edition so that's why I bought this edition.

 

2. Lock and Key, Keeping the Moon and Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen and Carrie by Stephen King. 

These four books came in the mail at the same day so that's why I have a picture of these four books. I bought the boxset with the three Sarah Dessen books for a really cheap price and I've already read Lock and Key last year on my ereader and loved it so I bought this boxset. These are the old covers and I have four other books by her also in the old covers (and I just want to collect all her books) so that was an other reason. I really want to read Someone Like you and Keeping the Moon soon and maybe I'll read Lock and Key as well.

 

I've never read anything by Stephen King and Carrie seems a great one to start with. This has to deal with prom (but then in a scary way) and it's prom time so perfect time to read this one! This is also his first novel and it's on the Rory Gilmore reading list. I think I'm going to read Carrie next month. 

 

3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott 

Can we just stare at this beautiful edition? It's from the Barnes and Noble leatherbound collection. I've never read Little Women, it is on the Rory Gilmore reading list and this edition is so beautiful so that's why I bought. I also cannot wait to read this one!

 

So here we go. These were all the books I recently bought. 

 

What books have you recently bought?

Keeping the Moon - Sarah Dessen

My fourth Sarah Dessen book for my summer challenge, and I can say this: I love it! I have bought it for my collection (hopefully that one will have grown quite a bit when summer is over).

I loved the main character, at times I wish should have more confidence (we often hear she is pretty), but luckily that is what the book is about. Her gaining confidence and her getting new friends who can help out.
Of course like all Sarah Dessen books there is a love interest, even 2 interests (I am still curious as to what happened to that other guy). We can of course easily see who she will pick. And yes, that is a bit predictable, but I don't mind it this time. 
I loved how she transformed. From grumpy (trying to), having black hair/ring through her lip, to a happy girl who enjoys her life. 
It was wonderful to see her finally talk back (to various people). 

Isabel, Morgan and Norman and also Mira, are great characters and they really bring life and colour in the book. Every one of these characters has problems and they try to solve them or fix them.

The only thing that was a shame (though in the end I didn't feel like that anymore) was that this book was so short. Most Sarah Dessen books are around 300+ to 400+ pages, this one was just over 200 pages. In the end it didn't matter (I was worried it might be rushed), because everything was solved, fixed and done by page 200+.
