Hello fellow readers!
Sorry I’ve been MIA for 6 months. I’ve been in the biggest reading slump of my life. I’m not sure what’s going on. I just haven’t found the joy in reading for past year and a half. I’ve been buying quite a few books, but I haven’t been reading.
The last book I read was around March and it was just a reread of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I also read 2 managa’s recently which were pretty good. After that, I’ve read nothing. And I feel bad for slacking so bad on my book blog. I really did enjoy doing it and being apart of the book community.
Another reason I’ve been slacking so much is because my mental health as been declining for the last 6 months. I’ve been more anxious and depressed. I was on medication but it stopped working so I changed meds and now I’ll be attending counseling at the end of the month. I’ve started a blog as like a diary for my anxiety and depression if you want to follow along or maybe not feel so lonely. My other blog is called Diary of an Anxious Girl. (:
I’m hoping to get back into blogging. I just need to get back into reading first. I need to find my joy that kept me reading but I’ve lost it.
I just recently went to see The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie. Can I just say, it was a fantastic film. It felt so wonderful to be back in the universe of wizards and magic. I like that the movie is kind of another Harry Potter movie, but at the same time, it’s a movie on its own. It didn’t feel like I was watching another Harry Potter movie. It felt like I was watching Fantastic Beasts. Not sure if I’m making sense… haha
I love how much this movie ties into the Harry Potter world. We learn things in this movie that can connect to both Dumbledore’s sister as well as Aragog, Hagrid’s spider friend. I thought that was pretty neat. It was almost like it was answering questions about what happened to Dumbledore’s sister as well as where Aragog even came from.
Eddie was a great actor. He was cute and awkward and adorable. He was the perfect actor to play Newt. All the actors were fantastic. They made the movie hilarious. I just don’t like what the American wizards call muggles. I don’t even remember the name, but it was super name and cheesy. I definitely enjoy the Harry Potter world better as oppose to this, but this movie was still fantastic and magical. I still can’t wrap my thoughts all up, but I did love the movie!
If you haven’t seen this movie, I highly recommend. Go see it in IMAX with some butter beer. It’ll be worth it.
