August Wrap Up and September TBR // I’ve accepted that I’m a witch.

I swear it’s like every month I’m telling you all about my declining mental health, but I assure you, I’m fine despite it… maybe… yeah πŸ˜‰ .

I took ARC August serious, only reading ARC’s until about… the last week or so of the month(?) I’m exhausted, but I’m masochist enough to want to do it again? But this is definitely a once a month thing cause ya girl is tired.

Oh, and I’ve finally accepted the fact that I’m a witch. It’ Leigh Bardugo’s fault. So there’s that.


I’m going to be using my rep indicators in my wrap up.  This idea was Romie’s @RomieWeDeserveLove so credit for the idea for these markers goes there!

🌞 = representation of people of colour
β™Ώ =  disability rep
🌸    = mental illness rep
βœ” = was on my monthly tbr

New aspect of the wrap ups – I’m trying to watch more movies/shows, sooooooooooooo….. yeah. But usually, I don’t… watch… T.V. … BUT I WAS IN A MOOD SO HERE WE GO.

Anastasia (1997) – I watched this for maybe the first time? I feel like I’ve seen it before, but I’m 95% sure I haven’t and I may be obsessed. Her voice actress was everything. And the music. *screams forever*

The Aristocats  –  Another oldie-but-goodie I decided to watch (I had that one on VHS back in the day, so you know where it’s at) and oh my gosh, what happened to 2D animation?! I MISS IT SO MUCH. IT’S SO GOOD. THE MUSIC. ALL OF IT.

 

Unapologetic Self Plug

I catch up on awards, doing the Unique Blogger award, The Liebster award, Mystery Blogger Award and the Awesome Blogger Award.

I recommend some lazy day reads, do the Three Bookish Things tag and discuss why author interviews stress me out.

The Sunshine Blogger Award was a thing, my current faves made an appearance and my birthday came around

I recognize what gets me into reading slumps and go down my TBR

Life is cool, everything is cool… Not much happened, I got my I.D. (not my driver’s licence T_T), watched all my friends go to college and overall am just at home… trying to get a job (forreal this time).

And my candle obsession is out of control… I DID NOT NEED TO BUY THESE CANDLES. SOMEONE STOP ME.

  1. Please tell me that was the animated Anastasia you mentioned up there!?! Because that film is SO GOOD AND SO UNDERAPPRECIATED. ❀ ❀ ❀ If you like that one, I think another underappreciated animated film I can't get enough of is Quest for Camelot!

    Good luck with this month's reading!

      1. AT LEAST YOU FOUND IT AND KNOW ALL OF IT’S GLORY.

        Seriously, it’s such a great film. RIGHT, though!? If you do, I’d LOVE to hear what you think!! Not a lot of people have seen Quest for Camelot and I LOVE IT SO MUCH and would love to see if you feel the same (no pressure, though).

  2. I’m also going to read This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story this month! I got an ARC (for once)! I can’t wait to see what you think! I’m also excited for What If It’s Us!
