Retrospective is a monthly post to rewind all of the happenings, thoughts, and discussions here at thoughts and afterthoughts.
A Rewind Of:
…just seeing The Last Star gives me anxiety. Fucking three years goodbyeeeee.
Think Aloud/Terrible Protagonist:
Sad category is sad.
Memes (Top Ten Tuesday):
[Book Events]: ARC August 2016 Sign Up
[Awards/Tags]: 2016 Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag
[Awards/Tags]: PokemonGO Book Tag
[Potterhead July]: 4 Reasons Why I’ll Never Be As Cool as Harry Potter
Television (Not a full list of what I watch):
(If you love to talk television, hit me up on Twitter and we can share feels together!)
Big Brother US18: After catching up…I really dig Paul and feel like he’s in a good position. Fucking FRIENDSHIP and MUFFINS.
Descendants of the Sun: Yes…I’ve basically all but dropped this show even though i have like 3-4 episodes left? It’s not the same now that they’re back from Urk and I absolutely don’t care anymore LOL.
Hotel Hell S3: I love Gordon.
Mr. Robot S2: Rami Malek is so legit omfg. This show remains extremely taut even when nothing happens (but especially when nothing happens).
Stranger Things S1: One night I was like lalalala what to watch??? then I came across this and 8 episodes later I am dead.
Scream S2: Everyone is slowly descending into major suckage. Am I the only one who thinks everyone’s annoying AF? Noah especially now. He was a good trope to have in the first season but I DON’T NEED YOUR INFODUMPS NOW MAN.
Suits S6: I love this firm. When they smoked pot and got high, omfg I lost it. “Do you know how to spell fiscal responsibility? I know how to spell ‘cheap'” lolololololololololoasjdsaiudanshjdas.
The Night Of: Has anyone watched this? I’m tempted to start it but might wait until it’s all over to binge it all.
Inception: Re-watched this gem and it is still magnificent.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Major Lazer – Cold Water (feat. Justin Bieber and MØ): JB has been solid recently. And I’ll fight you for chirping on him.
Charlie Puth – We Don’t Talk Anymore (feat. Selena Gomez): This track is an oldie but this remix is fun.
Chainsmokers – Closer (feat. Halsey): You listen to it and tell me it’s not catchy (no, don’t. my feels will be hurt.)
Twoloud – My Remedy (Untold Festival Anthem): A jazzy dance track.
Shawn Mendes – Treat You Better: Not gonna lie…this is fire.
Martin Garrix – In The Name of Love (feat. Bebe Rexha): This has that Illenium vibe (which no one reading this book blog will actually understand LOL) but whateverrrrr I had to say it.
On top of trying to push out consistent flat lay bookstagram images, I’m also incorporating more #bookmodeling and #SandwichSunday feature photographs hahaha. Feel free to follow me on IG for bookish feels in picture form.

Today’s edition of #SandwichSunday features books with travelling re: chase scenes. / / What are some of your favourite books with cat-and-mouse (ish) chase scenes? / / I somehow found myself on the “Other” side of YouTube a few weeks ago and watched a video of people trying to catch chickens. It was pointlessly hilarious. / / Books mentioned: #TheBlackthornKey #BirdBox #HalfAKing #GlassSword #ShadowandBone #MoreThanThis / / Ingredients: buttered bun + chicken breast + vidalia onions + red/green peppers + Diana’s barbeque sauce. I think that was it. / / / /

Happy #FourthofJuly to my #USA neighbours down south! / / #redwhiteblue #bookspines (?) er #bookcovers (?) feat. — #simonvsthehomosapiensagenda, #outrunthemoon, #afterworlds, #boyrobot, #glasssword, and #therestofusjustlivehere / / So I wanted my #CanadaDay book modeling photo to be a one off but I have this shirt that's American (ish) and I guess I [had] to take a picture? Some fun trivia: all of these books take place somewhere in the States too! (Yes, even the world of Norta–which I did not know until after reading Glass Sword.) Happy celebrating and stay classy. / / / /
TIME TO WRITE THIS MONTH OFF AND HOPE [AGAIN] FOR A BETTER MONTH.
