Recent Reads & Movie Reviews 📙

Hey muffins! As another month has gone by, I thought I should update you all with what I have been reading and watching recently. Spoiler alert - I haven't actually read or watched as much as I usually do for my previous Recent Reads posts... But I still wanted to share my thoughts before I forgot my reviews, so I hope you all don't mind the shorter post! 🤷‍♀️


Recent Reads
~The Kindness Diaries by Leon Logothetis


I found this book when I was randomly searching through my local library and thought it would be an interesting read... And it was! Leon traveled across the world (yes, world!) with just his yellow bike. He relied on the kindness of strangers for food, shelter, and gas to continue the journey. 😯 On this journey he met so many people from across the globe, and he would give gifts to those that needed it the most (ex. he paid for the college education of a homeless man and bought a cow for a family in India!). While some of the gift giving sections did come off like he was bragging about how much money he could give away, the book was very inspiring overall. I definitely want to see the documentary that was filmed during his voyage!
Rating: 9/10


Movie Reviews
~Sixteen Candles


Just like in my last movie reviews post where I revealed that I had never seen Pretty Woman, I had also never seen Sixteen Candles until recently. Honestly, I wasn't a big fan of it. I know the kissing over a birthday cake scene is iconic, but there were a lot of questionable moments in the film. Especially the rapey comment made by Jake when his girlfriend Caroline is drunk in his car... I don't think I would watch this film again if I was searching for a classic rom com.

~A Date with Miss Fortune


The trailer for this film was randomly in the recommended section of my YouTube feed, so I decided to watch it when I had a couple of hours free last week. It was actually pretty hilarious! The plot is your typical girl and guy fall in love but have trouble staying together (in this instance because of a disapproving fortune teller). 🔮 I'm sure that I found parts of the film funny because they were so cheesy, but I have definitely seen worse. While I probably wouldn't watch it again, it was still a fine movie.
Rating: 7.5/10

  1. I've never seen 16 candles but I did think it would be one that wouldn't age well!
