June 2016 Reading Wrap Up

This month started and ended out mostly with graphic novels, which I’m pretty happy about.
I read a total of 19 books (11 graphic novels and 8 novels):

  • Books I haven’t stopped thinking about:
    Persepolis 2 by Marjane Satrapi. Like I mentioned in my review, this graphic novel was a complete game-changer, and I’m extremely grateful to have it in my life.
  • Special posts featured this month on my blog:
    My Top Ten Slam Poems— it took me a quite a while to put all the material together, but I’m really proud of the end result (and I hope you liked it, too).
  • Favorite current song:
    I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for days now, and it made me that more excited for Suicide Squad:

Honorable Mention:
I watched this hilariously beautiful show called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend in the first week of June.crazy-ex-girlfriend-season-1-poster-the-cw-2015 I was really hesitant with wanting to start this because of the title, but I’m glad that I did.  I told myself to just watch one episode and that, naturally, turned into watching 6 more back-to-back (totally worth it).

The main character, Rebecca, is extremely flawed but she is so much more than just a “crazy ex-girlfriend.” The show tackles a lot of current issues and, in my opinion, in a really well-mannered way.

It’s hard trying to explain the charm of the show, so I guess you’ll just have to watch it yourself.

And my favorite episodes have to be episode 2 and 11— they still make me laugh, especially the songs* featured within.

*The songs:
The Sexy Getting Ready Song (from episode 2):

You Stupid Bitch (from episode 11):


That was my June Wrap Up, thank you for reading!
