Looking back on June

A list of some of the things I enjoyed a lot this month.

Song of the month:
Someone like you - Adele.
I don't think I will ever get enough of this song. 

Book of the month:
Something Wonderful - Judith McNaught.
I recently discovered this romance author, all thanks to my friend Nikshi, and her books are by far the best I have read in a long, long time. Not at all like the superficial, fluffy, romances we get to read everywhere these days. She creates such strong characters and tells such beautiful stories it is difficult to not be moved every time you read her books. The one I have picked here has a story which I am unlikely to forget, ever.

Quotes from Something Wonderful:
1. "What are you looking at?" Jordan demanded finally, watching her.
"A dragon." When he looked bewildered she lifted her arm and pointed to the sky in the southeast. "Right there—that cloud—what do you see when you look at it?"
"A fat cloud."
Alexandra rolled her eyes at him. "What else do you see?"
He was quiet for a moment studying the sky. "Five more fat clouds and three thin ones."

2. "Conventionality is the refuge of a stagnant mind" - Alexandra Townsend.

3. "A lie is an affront to the soul, as well as an insult to the intelligence of the person to whom one lies."

4. "Think of my immortal soul, sweetheart. It's black and,without you here to make me mend my ways, I'll undoubtedly slip back into my old habits." - Jordan.

Movie of the month:
Hotel for Dogs.

You don't have to be a dog lover to enjoy this movie. But all dog lovers should definitely catch this movie. One of those uncomplicated, feel-good, entertaining movies that comes along once in a while. A lot of furry love, animal jokes, goofy humour, weird kids, and melt your heart moments. Sometimes it just feels good to shut down your brain and act like you're a 15-year-old with no worries in life. With this movie, I could achieve that.

Blog of the month:
In and Out of Love
