Hi everyone! How is it almost July?! I genuinely have no idea where the year is going. I graduate in less than a month, my birthday is just under two months! I have been up to quite a bit this month. I went on holiday last week which was nice but even though it is horrible weather I am glad to be home. I also have stuff planned in the next few months which I am excited about and I’m sure they’ll be featured in my monthly favourites. Anyway let’s get on with my favourites for this month!
Funny girl – I went to see this a few weeks back and it was amazing! If you have never heard of it, it’s a true story of a woman called Fanny Bricett who wants to go into show business but she isn’t considered to be a typical pretty girl which leads onto the name funny girl (sorry for the lame explanation, if you haven’t heard of it just look it up). It was doing a UK tour so we went to see it at the Alhambra in Bradford. It was supposed to be Sheridan Smith as the lead but she was ill which was a shame but I don’t feel it took away from the experience. It was just so funny and made me realise how much I love the theatre.
Yes please by Amy Poehler – So I’ve never considered myself a fan of Amy Poehler. Not because I don’t like her but I’ve just not seen much of her stuff and wasn’t overly sold on parks and recreation. However, I always wanted to read her book yes please and as I went away last week I thought that would be the perfect time to read it. I absolutely loved it! I’m also not usually one for non fiction, particularly biographies, however this was so good. It wasn’t much of a biography, it’s more like a collection of stories which I love. I think everyone should read this book, you won’t regret it.
On the other side by Carrie Hope Fletcher – This book was so good! It’s about Evie Snow who has died at aged 83 but has become her 27 year old self and is stuck outside her own personal heaven and has to let go of secrets in order to get there. I was a bit wary about reading it at first because I thought it might be aimed at a younger audience but I was wrong. I love Carrie so I can’t wait for her next book.
There you have it, my June favourites! Is there anything you’ve been loving this month? Feel free to share them in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
