June Favorites

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

It's the first Tuesday of the month and that means another round of the fun monthly link-up hosted by Raisa and Eirene where we rounded up the things that we really loved and liked from the past month which is awesome and super cool! 

Like what I mentioned in my June wrap-up post, last month was dull and monotonous. I didn't get to go out of the house - well except for going home to the province for a few days but other than that, I was only at home, doing nothing but reading books, internet surfing and watched TV. Thus, for My Favorite Things post, I'm rounding up the things that gave color to my monotonous life.


My fangirl heart was happy - no scratch that, so very happy with how Season 6 turned out. Battle of the Bastards (EP. 9) and Winds of Winter (EP. 10) did it for me. From Dany riding her dragons & seeing them in action, the battle scene at Winterfell, Cersei's EP. 10 Black Gown, Rickon running for his life etc. This show is a spectacle. Truly, one of the best!


Hats off to the ladies this season! Clearly, you showed who's the real boss.

I shed a tear when the closing credits were shown after EP. 10 because that reminded me that I have to wait another year for this to come back. Winter is here!


I thought I wasn't going to get emotional because I've read the book, I know the scenes and the drama -  in short, I was prepared but my tear ducts betrayed me. I'm a hard person to please when it comes to book-movie adaptations because I always prefer the former and would usually get disappointed with the latter, but Me Before You was one of the best book adaptation I've seen.

Thirteen years (almost) of waiting and the excitement and happiness was still the same. My childhood heart was happy!

You can check why I raved about these books in my June wrap-up post HERE


Stumbled upon this book blog by Hazel when I was randomly searching book bloggers in the Philippines and I fell in love with her site's design, layout, and overall feel. So creative!

And of course, this post wouldn't be complete without my favorite person in the world - my daughter. She turned five last month. Happy Birthday, Nicole! Mama loves you so much!

What are your favorites from last month?

And YAY for epic goodly wonderful reads. :') And I am sadly behind on Game of Thrones...I mean, I had this delusion of wanting to read the sixth book first? AHHAHAH.

  2. Wanted to stop by to tell you how gorgeous your blog is (but I'm sure you already know that aha). I adored the Game of Thrones final as well, currently super jealous of all the people who are still on season three – they don't have to wait a year for the next season!
