August Wrap-Up | 2016

What a successful reading month I had in August. Can you guess how many books I read?

Don’t worry, I shall tell you…

Drum roll please…

That’s right, I read zero books in August.

I really have no excuses, other than work, being on holiday in Paris, and moving into my new house. I guess life just got too busy!

There’s nothing else much to say on the reading front, and just because I don’t want to finish the post on an embarrassing, negative note, I’ll tell you about what I watched instead…

Yes, the Netflix show that everyone seems to be talking about! And what an amazing show it is! I am not a fan of the creepy, scary things, but I LOVED Stranger Things. I watched the first three episodes, and thought I wasn’t going to carry on with it, because it was creeping me out a little, and I wasn’t overly enthusiastic about it enough yet to outweigh that. But the hype around this show kept playing on me! So I pushed through, and man am I glad that I did!

For those of you who don’t already know (what rock are you living under?) Stranger Things is the story of a boy who disappears, and the people on the search for him, and all of the super weird, creepy, supernatural revelations and reasons surrounding it. It’s slow to start, but about half way in it gets so intense that you just can’t stop watching it!

And it’s only 8 episodes, which means you don’t have to dedicate as much time (which I guess could also be a downside!).

If I were to rate it as I rate books, I would probably give it a 4.5/5 – only because it took me a few episodes to fully get into it.

I have also been watching a bit of the Big Bang Theory. I only started watching BBT a couple of months ago (I know, I am soooooo behind!) and I’ve really been enjoying watching an odd episode whilst doing other things. (I sound like I’m some sort of professional multi-tasker here, but I’m seriously not!!!)

So that’s my fail of a reading wrap up for August! Here’s hoping for a much better month of reading during September (even though so far the total is still zero!).

Hopefully you guys did much better than me! How much did you read? What was your favourite? And has anyone else watched and loved Stranger Things?

  1. I was surprised by Stranger Things too. I am not a fan of horror or scary things so I thought it really wouldn’t be my thing. It was so good though. The kid actors were amazing – I love Eleven! I thought Nancy could definitely do better though! Excited to see what is in store for season 2! πŸ™‚
