I did not read as much as I normally do, this month, because of a reading slump so instead, I watched quite a few films and series.
F I L M S
Athlete A (2020)
WAS WINNING WORTH THE COST?
Follow the Indianapolis Star reporters that broke the story about USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar’s abuse and hear from gymnasts.
This documentary was quite difficult to watch. I never knew about anything mentioned in this film but it did teach me many things and to be more aware of what is going on in the world.
Instant Family (2018)
JUST ADD CHAOS LAUGHTER AWKWARDNESS MISTAKES LOVE
When Pete and Ellie decide to start a family, they stumble into the world of foster care adoption. They hope to take in one small child but when they meet three siblings, including a rebellious 15 year old girl, they find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight.
I have seen this film around a few times and decided to watch it on a whim. It was really entertaining and I did laugh (and cry) a couple of times. If you are in the mood for a crazy, funny and whirlwind of a movie, this is it!
Enola Holmes (2020)
MYSTERY RUNS IN THE FAMILY.
While searching for her missing mother, intrepid teen Enola Holmes uses her sleuthing skills to outsmart big brother Sherlock and help a runaway lord.
When I saw that Helena Bonham Carter was in this film, I was immediately intrigued. I really enjoyed this film and as I am the biggest scary cat, I did jump once or twice at certain scenes. It was really fun to watched and I loved all the actors.

The Big Bang Theory (S2:E6—S4:E3)
The lives of four socially awkward friends, Leonard, Sheldon, Howard and Raj, take a wild turn when they meet the beautiful and free-spirited Penny.
It has been a while since I binged this many episodes and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I find the series really funny and love watching it to relax for a few minutes.
Get Organised with The Home Edit (Season 1)
Organizers Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit conquer clutter and transform lives.
On a whim, I decided to watch this series. I have never heard of The Home Edit before but after this, I instantly turned into a fan. I am the kind of person who finds organising really relaxing, so this was the perfect way to unwind before bed. I definitely learned a thing or two watching these few episodes and cannot wait to apply what I have learned to my daily life.
