Best of July

Hi All! Happy July! 

This is just a fun little meme that Carole and I are going to try  and do once a month. Give a little shout-out and "badge" of honor to our favorite book and movie of the previous month. This month we'll share our favorites of July.

First, favorite movie:

For July, My pick....................Boss Baby (2017)

"Bad movie month as always, baby gets fussy in the evenings and never goes to sleep. So July's winner is Boss Baby. It did make me lol and Boss Baby reminded me of Siggi haha"

Now, Carole's pick is...................From Time to Time (2009)

"Not a lot going on Movie-wise this month for me. I had only one good one that I consider worthy of our beautiful trophy. From Time to Time was an interesting film for sure. It had some meaning and made me feel. The ending and big twist was very guessable, but it was still worth a watch."

Now, favorite book:

First, here is Carole's pick.................................Mistress of the Wind by Michelle Diener

"The best book for the month goes to Mistress of the Wind. It was just so good. I didn't anticipate that this amazing book was an Amazon freebie. It was a beautiful retelling of an old classic. I loved the characters and the world. I really want some sort of sequel. It is a for sure a must read. "

My pick is ..................................Gather the Daughters by Jennie Melamed

"The best book of the month goes to Gather the Daughters by Jennie Melamed cos it was so good! It showed this horrible cult and everyone was happy, but when you read on you saw the cracks and so many miserable people. And it sent chills down my spine and that kick in the gut, damn, wtf.  You have to read it."


What was your favorite book of the month? Please share below! 


  1. I've heard really good things about Baby Boss. I've added Gather the Daughters to my TBR. Glad you had a good July.

    Melanie @ Hot Listens & Rabid Reads

  2. Those are wonderful picks and what a great theme indeed. Greetings.

  3. I haven't read or watched any of these but I heard the movie was funny.

  4. Happy August, girls! I hope it'll be a better month!

  5. I need to get a list going for my July reads. I've been such a suck reader lately. Lol.

  6. Baby Boss was cute, and I've watched it about a dozen times. I like that we can watch and be amused too.

  7. We're going to watch Boss Baby soon with the kids, I think, so I'm glad it got your seal of approval!

  8. Anything with Maggie Smith is good for me!

  9. I'll look for From Time to Time.

    My fav read of the month (forgot to do that post this month) was a toss-up between Single-Minded by Lisa Daily and The Summer that Made Us by Robyn Carr.

  10. I need to watch Boss Baby lol

  11. Mistress of the Wind is definitely a book I want to grab up.

  12. Boss know the baby is always the boss :) Wildfire and Don't Let Go were my favorite July reads.
