This month was a good month for me when it comes to the films and series I watched. I was not in the biggest reading mood this month but definitely had a fun time binging these series and films.

Charlie’s Angels (2019)
When a systems engineer blows the whistle on a dangerous technology, Charlie’s Angels from across the globe are called into action, putting their lives on the line to protect society.
I honestly did not expect to love this film as much as I did. It was such a perfect action comedy and I still cannot get over it. Women’s Day was well spent watching and rewatching it with my sister and I really enjoyed Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska in this. Highly recommend!
Get Smart (2008)
SAVING THE WORLD…AND LOVING IT!
When the identities of secret agents from Control are compromised, the Chief promotes hapless but eager analyst Maxwell Smart and teams him with stylish, capable Agent 99, the only spy whose cover remains intact. Can they work together to thwart the evil plans of KAOS and its crafty operative?
I decided to watch this one on a whim and I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would but still, I loved Anne Hathaway and the rest of the cast and could not help but laugh at times.

Gilmore Girls (S5:E5—S5:E6)
Lorelai Gilmore, an independent young woman, shares a close bond with her wilful daughter, Rory. However, her relationship with her own mother is strained.
I was not in the biggest mood for this series this month but want to continue my binge really soon.
Outer Banks (S1:E1)
A teenager enlists his three best friends to hunt for a legendary treasure linked to his father’s disappearance.
My sister watched this series a while back and enjoyed it, so I decided to give it a go. The mystery in the first episode intrigued me and I am excited to continue with the rest of the episodes to see what happened.
Lucifer, a demon, returns from hell to reside in Los Angeles and runs a club. He soon gets involved with the local police and assists them in solving tricky criminal cases.
I was counting down the days until this new season arrived and believe me, when it did, I binged episode after episode. I discovered this series last year, I think, and binged all the available seasons. Not only do I laugh out loud at Lucifer, Maze and all the other characters at times, I also thoroughly enjoy the mystery as Lucifer and Chloe solve a murder in each episode. I love any mystery/thriller but am one of the biggest scary cats, so a bit of comedy mixed in between is highly appreciated.
Sweet Magnolias (S1:E1—S1:E10)
Lifelong friends lift each other up as they juggle relationships, family and careers in the small Southern town of Serenity.
My sister recommended me this one, actually. I binged it over the span of three days and am still not over the dramatic ending. I cannot wait for season two that will hopefully be on Netflix in next year.

I am so happy to announce that this post is my 100th blog post! Blogging has taken up more space in my heart and life than I ever thought and I am enjoying every second of it. All of this started with bookstagram and although I have been absent on there, I am hoping to find more balance between my personal life and social media life, with all of its different platforms, soon.
I am constantly learning more about blogs, myself, my style/aesthetic/look and schedule. My only wish is that I stay true to myself and that I can keep creating and talking about books without stressing myself unnecessarily.
Thank you so much for all the support and love I have received on here since I started my blog in January! I appreciate it more than you know.
Keep on reading and never stop telling stories.
