May favourites

 

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog!

 

I can’t believe it’s already June when it’s pouring down with rain in the UK and France! As this is the first day of the month, I have decided to do my May Favourites post. Enjoy!

I’ll start off with cinema!

Me before you

This film was an absolute tear jerker and I do not think I have ever cried so much in my entire life. Definitely recommend this film for those who like romantic films 🙂 I won’t spoil the rest yet as I will be posting a review of this film shortly.

Books:

Adorkable

I took out a few books this month as I had a trip to the French countryside where I would have no internet or TV so reading would be my entertainment. This book took me by surprise because from the cover it looks rather superficial without any important messages; however the truth is very different.

This story is about a boy and a girl who couldn’t be more different (the girl is an outsider and the boy is super popular) yet they fall in love. I think that the message of this book is that you should not judge people by appearances as you may not get to know someone properly if you are so superficial. Also it emphasises the fact that it’s ok to be different as the main protagonist, Jeane, is able to create a community called ‘adorkable’ to help people who feel like outsiders to feel ok with them. I loved this book!

Music:

Zara Larsson

I discovered this artist on the radio in London and I keep hearing her all the time. She has an absolutely fantastic voice and her lyrics are truly heart felt. Fun fact about her: she is Swedish and only 18!

That’s all for now.  Hope to hear from you soon.

Lots of love,

Charlotte xoxo
