Summer Reading: How did it go?

So, Summer went by like a quick snap of the fingers, didn't it? I mean, it went by SO fast! TOO FAST!

This summer was probably the most busiest summer for me because I took two courses of summer school and it was pretty hard and challenging! I didn't go on Vacation but I had Cross Country practice all throughout the summer and Let's admit it, I was lazy.

So, what DID I do? What did I read and what did I watch? What did I do when I was bored I am going to fill you in on how my ten weeks of summer went by!

1. MY FAVE READS OF THE SUMMER!

So, Like I mentioned, I didn't read a ton, but I did read some fantastic books! I don't keep track of what I read (which I am going to start doing!) so I will tell you some of my honorable favorites! These books are absolutely fantastic and they are great reads!



I've read more than these two books, obviously, but these two books stood out to me the most! They are absolutely fantastic, filled with rich dialogue and amazing plotlines and characters! Pick these two books up! You won't regret it!

2.SO THE MOVIES THAT I WATCHED!

If you didn't know, I am a huge lover of movies! Like seriously, I watch so many movies you have to roll me out of theatre at times! This summer I watched new movies and some old movies and I will show you the movies that I have watched!

  • All of the Harry Potter Films! I seriously loved all of them and fell in love once again! 5/5 stars
  • Me Before you! This movie was heartwarming and brilliant! A definite 5/5 stars!
  • Kung Fu panda 3! Hilarious and charming as always! But not as good as the first two films. 4/5 stars
  • Room! A spectacular, phenomenal movie with a suspenseful plot and storyline! I just loved it so much! This movie is meant for older audiences! 5/5 stars!
  • Coraline! I watched this movie seven years ago as a kid and I remember being so afraid of this movie but I watched it again and this movie is surely something! Great message and a satisfying story! 4/5 stars!
  • Hot Pursuit! Funny and charming! Not much to say, it does have a weak plot but overall enjoyable! 3/5 stars
  • Finding Dory! Funny and heartwarming! It gave me a nostalgic feeling and I highly enjoyed it! 4/5 stars!
  • Alice through the looking glass! Heart warming and delivers a great message and I even teared up at the end! 4/5 stars!
  • The Secret Life of Pets! Such a cute and hilarious movie! it did give me the Toy Story feels but that doesn't mean it was a toy story rip off. It did have a stand of it's own and I highly enjoyed it!  4/5 stars!
                                                      I REALLY DID WATCH A LOT....

 3. WHAT SHOWS DID I WATCH?
     I got introduced to so many shows this summer and I love them all so much! I binged all of them so hard and AHH I just loved them! These are not all the shows that I watch, but just the one I got introduced to and watched during the summer. 

  • One Tree Hill- I binged this show on Netflix and it was so good! OMG it is definitely one of the best TV shows out there and it will always be remembered by me as one of the best TV shows that I have ever watched!
  • The Flash-OMFG. I literally started this show a week ago and I am in LOVE. I'm on the second season right now and it is so good! I cannot wait for the third season to come out this October! And for all you Harry Potter fans, TOM FELTON, A.K.A DRACO MALFOY, WILL BE A SERIES REGULAR STARTING SEASON 3!!! (Fangirls and screams)
  • Dance Moms-Okay, so this is a dance reality show about kids who dance and it is so dramatic but also very fun to watch! I honestly stopped watching after Season 3 just because THE FLASH came up in my life but you should go give it a try if you want some SERIOUS DRAMA.
  • Friends-I started this show a few months ago and finished it this summer and AHH! Friends is seriously like a comic legend! I loved every episode and laughed at each one it was CRAZY! I am definitely going to watch it again!
 4. I ALSO GOT TO MEET A FEW OF MY FAVE AUTHORS!!!

I have an Author Meet experience post if you want to read more in detail about the experience! I got to meet Marie Lu, Renee Ahdieh, Alwyn Hamilton and Romina Russell!



They were obviously awesome because you know, well, they're AUTHORS! AND THEY HAVE FREAKING AMAZING KICK ASS BOOKS!


So...Yeah! That was pretty much my summer! It wasn't anything super exciting but you know what? I LOVED IT! I was in my zone and I was doing pretty much everything before school starts again! I probably won't be able to read as much during the school year which I am super afraid of but I'll manage:)\

What did YOU guys do during the summer? Recommend me books, movies, TV shows, ANYTHING and I'll check it out! Thanks for reading this post guys and have a happy rest of your summer!

School is starting and I am excited!!!


(And scared but oh, whatever)
