Another month has come and gone, which can only mean one thing. It’s time for me to apprise you of my progress with all my many lists!
See 52 New Films
A slightly better month than April, I managed to see five new films in June. I built up quite a head of steam in the first couple of months of the year with new films, so I’m still ahead of myself. I have now watched 34 films, and we are only at week 22. Just 18 more films to watch to hit my target!
I really enjoyed four of the five films that I watched this month. Two Oscar winners (Jeff Bridges for Crazy Heart and Aaron Sorkin for The Social Network), and two Marvel films (Thor and Avengers Assemble). The only film that I didn’t enjoy all that much was Things to do Before You’re 30. I only watched it because it was on iPlayer and I was bored. It was pretty bad!
Read 75 Books
Another slow-ish month for books, but in my defence, I have read a couple of really thick books again! Both A Game of Thrones and 22-11-1963 were really thick, and took me a while to get through. Both really good, however, and I am currently reading the second book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, A Clash of Kings, and I’m well and truly hooked. As for 22-11-1963, it was the first Stephen King book that I had read, not being a huge horror fan, and I absolutely loved it. Combining the story of John F. Kennedy’s assassination with time travel is a match made in heaven for me!
I read the Titanic book for my book group, and as it was only a quick read it only took me about an hour and a half! And I’m a very new Sophie Hannah fan – as you can see I read two of her books last month, and one of them I finished in a day!
Confession time: Project 366 is over! I lost my way and it got to the point of no return. I toyed with the idea of starting again and going for a year from when I start, but I decided against it! I may try again next year, but honestly I don’t think I am cut out for committing to something like that for so long!
30 Before 30
No cakes this month; I do have one in the offing though I haven’t had a chance to actually make it yet. I will probably do it this weekend, so it will be in June’s report. I did manage to get one item crossed off though, my first one!
Think of a New Blog Name
As you are probably aware by now, I managed to both think of a new blog name (though honestly, I had thought of it quite some time ago), and actually change it and redesign my blog. I am still completely in love with it!
So this month has been fine in terms of books and films, but not so great for anything else! I really need to step up the 30 Before 30, otherwise I’m going to be embarrassed by the lack of action again this year!
