This summer was way too short. But I was (un)lucky enough to obsess over a huge amount of things. And, obviously, I want to share my obsessions with you, dear readers. So here we go…
Big Magic! by Elizabeth Gilbert
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
If you want to know what my thoughts about those two are, you can read my “Books Lately #3” post right here.
The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle
Soon, I’ll review this book in a future “Books Lately” post along with some other goodies that I’ve read.
One of the best TV shows I have seen so far. The plot follows Mary Sibley and her coven who are trying to complete the Grand Rite. Although there were some disturbing images here and there, I didn’t really get scared. It’s important to understand that the series does not mean to portray what actually happened in Salem. So it’s not accurate from a historical point of view because, well, it was just inspired by the Salem witch trials. Anyway, I recommend it to everyone who loves stories about the occult, witches in general and magic.
I’ve seen some of the episodes when I was a child, but not the whole series. One night I just remembered about how much I used to love it and decided to watch the whole thing. I ABSOLUTELY loved it. My favorite characters must be Quicksilver, Nightcrawler, Storm and Wolverine (of course). You can watch it on YouTube.
The Grand Budapest Hotel
This is not just a summer favorite. This is officially my favorite movie (so far). I have loved everything about it. It has comedy, serious moments, lovable characters, wonderful images, the colors are amazing… 10/10 for sure. You have to see it!
It blew my mind. I honestly (and shamefully) never believed that Tom Ford would be able to direct something as beautiful as this. But it just proves that art is art and you can succeed in any of its areas if you believe in your powers and you are true to yourself. The story is about a woman named Susan. She receives a manuscript from her ex husband. While she reads it, she realizes that the whole book is a metaphor of their love. Great movie! And as a bonus, both Jake Gyllenhaal and Aaron Taylor-Johnson play in it.
This was so funny and entertaining! The animation is amazing, the characters super sweet and they make you laugh a lot. I can’t wait to see HT2! Also, Dracula’s accent was so lovely.
- Jake Gyllenhaal, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Tom Hiddleston, Janet Montgomery, Chris Evans, Dua Lipa and Elizabeth Olsen (lovely people)
- Marvel (I don’t know where I’ve been all this time, but I am finally on board)
- Journaling (been writing in my journal almost every day)
- Driving (started taking driving lessons… love it)
- German (what a great language)
What have you, dear readers, been obsessing over this summer?
