Paper Towns - Finally watched this John Green adaptation. I think this was my favorite of his books.
Satanic Panic - What a weird movie, and yet I liked it.
Downtown Abbey - AHHH!!!!! I got to see the new movie at a special early screening. So much fun!
Booksmart - Really loved this one!
Spider-Man: Far From Home - Finally! I avoided every single spoiler and it was so worth it!
The Impossible - Very emotional movie based on a true story.
TV Shows watched
Game of Thrones S6-8 - We finished the last three seasons of the show! Not happy about the ending, but overall I’ve really enjoyed this series.
Big Little Lies S2 - Finally started the second season. Not really wanting to binge it, but it’s good so far.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina S1 - Finally started this series and I don’t understand why I waited so long. The first few episodes have been so much fun!
Superstore S5 - One of the few sitcoms we watch.
The Good Place S4 - It’s back finally! And for the last season. I’m so excited to see where this goes.
Comments - Another great reading month in terms of pages, but not so great in terms of reading quality. There were definitely a few duds in there. I’m looking forward to all the spooky reads I have lined up for next months.
