YO! Many of you may not know but I recently spent a super fun week in Orange Beach, Alabama with a friend of mine and her family! We stayed in their condo (and avioded the beach at all costs because I kinda hate it…) but LOTS of shenagins ensued (we MIGHT have snuck a creepy horse mask into her sister’s room while she was sleeping… 😂 AND THERE WERE PRETTY FIREWORKS!) So I thought I’d share some pictures of this fun trip with you! Enjoy!
AND OF COURSE! Since this is a book blog, I feel the need to mention that I read three books while there!
I finished my reread of Vicious and loved it just as much the second time! (Review here)
I read and finished Illuminae, which was amazing and totally caught me off guard with how good it was! (Review coming Sunday!)
I read and finished Gemina, which somehow caught me off guard AGAIN with all the feels it caused it’s creativity! (Review coming next week!)
And I started Lord of Shadow! I’ve been listening to this one on audio book for a while now but I finally got a hard copy from the library because I don’t usually set aside a lot of time for audio books.
AND I ALSO WATCHED SOME MOVIES!
Les Mis: SO my friend had a nonmusical copy of Les Mis (one thing you should know about me is that I LOVE the musical and my friend’s nickname is Eponine) So we HAD to watch It! Overall it was fine. They cut out A LOT and the end was pretty abrupt but it was good.
Trolls: This one was mostly for the kiddos and I kinda just sat in the room and read while it was on but some of the songs sounded nice!
A Knight’s Tale: My friend had been trying to get me to watchthis since we studied Canterbury Tales last year. I finally watched it with her and it was good! It was silly and cheesy but really fun.
I Am Not Ashamed: This is a Christian movie and, while I am religious, I planned to just kinda ignore it because I didn’t think I’d like it. I read through most of the beginning just looking up every now and then but by the end I put my book down and was actually paying attention. It was better than I expected and actually pretty good!
Descendants 2: YES THIS IS A DISNEY CHANNEL MOVIE DON’T JUDGE ME! My friend, her sister, and I were all actually kinda excited to watch this one. I never saw the first and I wanted to see how cheesy it would be. It was a fun movie but WOW the sound mixing was TERRIBLE for a musical! The backing tracts were always too loud so you couldn’t understand the lyrics well and singing was SO auto tuned and processed! If you’re going to make a movie musical, please at least TRY and make it look like you’re actually singing… OH ALSO! I’m marrying Harry Hook’s eyeliner… only his eyeliner 🙂
THANKS FOR READING THIS! Have you read/seen anything mentioned above? Have you gone on any fun vacations this summer you might want to share?
