Hello everyone! Another month has come to a close, (way too fast might I add, especially since school starts in September!) But regardless I did manage to read some books this month, miraculously squeezing in the last one at the very last second!

Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel
★★★.5 stars!
An enjoyable sequel to a fantastic book series! While this wasn’t my favorite of the two, (I wish there was more explanation on the events that occurred rather than just interviews) I am still SO engrossed in this story and the mystery and science of it all. I can’t wait to see what the final book has in store!

Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson [REVIEW]
★★★★ stars!
Such an amazing read! It’s set in the same world as The Remnant Chronicles, and follows two characters who must learn to navigate together while their loyalties lie elsewhere. It was such a fun book to read, and I really can’t wait to see how the author wraps this up!

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
★★★★ stars!
I am really proud of myself for finally completing this series that I’ve been reading FOREVER! I have more of my spoiler-free thoughts coming out in my review so be on the lookout for that! (Plus I think this book alone should count as me reading like three books because it’s so HUGE!)IMG_0837

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before ★★★★
I kinda hate myself for not reading the book before the movie, but the hype got to me! I really tried to hold off for a bit, but I just couldn’t! 😆 All in all, I thought it was a great teen rom-com!

Crazy Rich Asians ★★★★.25
Probably one of my favorite movies this month? I just loved everything about it, from the way it was shot, the amazing visuals, an all asian cast?! Just amazing! I’m definitely looking forward to reading the book soon!

Avengers: Infinity War ★★★★★
YES, I caved and bought the DVD edition for this…I couldn’t help it! In case you were wondering, yes it’s still just as heartbreaking watching it, and it’s my third time! There are so many amazing moments in this and I loved every single character arc in the movie.IMG_0836

Meteor Garden ★★★★★
This may just be my new favorite show…or is that the 4 days of sleeplessness talking? No kidding I’ve just been binging this show for DAYS. It’s completely taken over my life and I blame this show for my lack of reading this month. It’s a c/drama on Netflix and JUST WATCH IT! You won’t regret it!

The 100 (Season 5) ★★.5
This season of the 100…definitely wasn’t my favorite, and I think a lot of people can agree with me. The conflicts were so messy and a lot of characters kept going back and forth on their loyalties, it was just a MESS. The only redeemable quality for me was the last episode.

New Girl (Season 3-4) ★★★★★
I’m finally catching up with New Girl! I love this show so much and I always stop watching it because I don’t want it to end! But I’ve been missing the characters a lot lately so I just have to suck it up and watch it.


I think we can all say that August was a great month of TV shows for me…it’s what I spent the majority of the summer doing. 😂 But I really recommend watching Meteor Garden, it’s literally taken over my life.

Let me know what your favorite books/movies/tv shows of August were! Any recommendations?

Thanks for reading!
