Reading Wrap Up: April to June 2017

I haven't been active in writing content or visiting other sites lately; most of my recent posts have been scheduled. This however is something I can write about now. I'm not on a reading slump, and have managed to finish more books for this quarter. Everything else on the other hand, is at a pause. As of writing, I have read 21 things all varying from different genres and age groups. Most of them I liked, but not enough to stand out for me to rave about. It's not that the books are bad, but I didn't get that feeling of sheer joy and the want to push whatever it is I read to you. I have five books to write about - that's good, right?

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies Based on True Events

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is movies based on true events. There’s a lot of movies that are based from historical events, or stories of people. Here are my picks for this week.

My Movie Alphabet Volume 2

In celebration of the 7th birthday of her blog, Mettel Ray has hosted the second round of her movie alphabet blogathon! Head over to her site and join in the fun! I participated in her first blogathon, and had a blast writing this so I was definitely in the second time around. When I first made this list, I was just thinking off the top of my head and placed a few things in there for the sake of crossing off some letters. I did end up thinking a lot for this list, and I went with things that are currently relevant to me. I also tweaked the rules a little bit, only because I don't want to let go of some of my picks. I think this list is a much clearer reflection on where I am in terms of my preferences compared to my previous years.

Trailer: Wonder

When I read Wonder early last year, it stayed with me so much that it ended being one of my favorite books of the year. The story of the book was very ripe for an adaptation, and this has now become one of my most awaited for the year. Jacob Tremblay was fantastic in Room, and I have a feeling that this would be really good.

Thursday Movie Picks: The Renaissance (14th to 17th Century)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is renaissance movies. I rarely watch period pieces so I had researched if I was getting the time lines right. Here are my picks for the week.

No, You're Crying! Blogathon

Debbie over at Moon in Gemini is hosting the No, YOU'RE Crying! Blogathon. The rules are simple - talk about our favorite tearjerker films! Head over to her site for a list of participants and their subsequent entries. I had a bunch of movies that made it to my short list, but ultimately decided on the movie that I keep coming back to. That is Disney's The Fox and the Hound - and it does not fail to make me cry. Note: spoilers for the movie below.
