If I thought that last month was a big reading month, this month is a huge everything month. I feel like I not only read double what I did last month but I also posted more than last month. I can’t believe that June is over and that we’re halfway through 2017, it seems like literally yesterday this year only started.

Ironically, I’ve been watching a bunch of videos of this tag and I was thinking about doing some sort of mid-year wrap up so I’m so glad that Romie tagged me in this. I have no idea of they’ve done this already but I’m going to tag Taryn and Haley and Marie (whose lovely blog I’ve recently found)

Actual Rating: 4/5 ⭐
Synopsis [From Goodreads]:
Anything can happen once upon a con…
When geek girl Elle Wittimer sees a cosplay contest sponsored by the producers of Starfield, she has to enter. First prize is an invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. Elle’s been scraping together tips from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck behind her stepmother’s back, and winning this contest could be her ticket out once and for all—not to mention a fangirl’s dream come true.
Teen actor Darien Freeman is less than thrilled about this year’s ExcelsiCon. He used to live for conventions, but now they’re nothing but jaw-aching photo sessions and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Federation Prince Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the diehard Starfield fandom has already dismissed him as just another heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, closet nerd Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.

Today marks one whole year of bookstagram, 365 days of taking photos and rambling about books. I thought it’d be nice to look back on my feed and some of my old reading habits to see how much I’ve changed.

Actual Rating: 5/5 ⭐
When Griffin’s first love and ex-boyfriend, Theo, dies in a drowning accident, his universe implodes. Even though Theo had moved to California for college and started seeing Jackson, Griffin never doubted Theo would come back to him when the time was right. But now, the future he’s been imagining for himself has gone far off course.
To make things worse, the only person who truly understands his heartache is Jackson. But no matter how much they open up to each other, Griffin’s downward spiral continues. He’s losing himself in his obsessive compulsions and destructive choices, and the secrets he’s been keeping are tearing him apart.
If Griffin is ever to rebuild his future, he must first confront his history, every last heartbreaking piece in the puzzle of his life.

I’ve been doing a lot of reviews lately so I wanted to mix it up a little bit by sharing some of my favourite films with you! I love films, I love cinematography and lighting and set designs and colour palettes and costumes (and of course, acting and plot); I just love everything about films okay, specifically aesthetic films. You know those ones whose shots just take your breath away. Yeah, those. Anyway, here’s just a handful of my favourite films (I probably should have called this ‘aesthetically pleasing films I’ve obsessed over but whatever).
I’ve tried to be as not spoiler-y as I can with my descriptions and comments on each film! I’ve updated this post with content warnings that are not spoiler free.
