Summary/Opinion: Crap, I'm a little behind to say the least with my reading but hopefully I'll be able to bump up my reading count by next month, especially as I start a new challenge - the GLBT Challenge hosted by Amanda from The Zen Leaf.

---------

Films
Total New Films Seen: 2
Films Reviewed: 0

Films currently in production that I'm most excited about:
Film of the Month: Thirteen (2003).

Summary/Opinion:
I'm going to start keeping a record of how many films I watch a month. I watch a lot of films each day - and that's no exaggeration. I'm a self-confessed film buff, am obsessed with the film/studio industry, so what better way to get out what's on my mind about it than on here? Just to clarify, I know I didn't do any Star Trek or Terminator reviews this month so let me just say, I loved Star Trek; Terminator Salvation was a big disappointment.

---------

Blogs/Web

Favourite Blog/s: The Book Zombie, A Secret Garden & Vampire Wire.
Favourite Site/s: Goodreads (Add me as a friend if you're on there - I'm friendless!), Nerdfighters (It helps if you've seen John and Hank Green's vlogs here) & Lainey Gossip (Shame on me but she's so damn funny!).

---------

Music

Favourite Bands: Phantom Planet (In three months I still haven't moved on from them).
Songs stuck in my head: The Shoot Out (Thirteen Soundtrack), Lemon by Katy Rose & You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC.
Concerts Attended: 0

Personal

I said a heartfelt goodbye to my Cardiff house at the end of June so that I could move back in with my parents for a short while. It's been 3 days and I miss my friends and boyfriend already. *sigh* But at least I have my books, films, and interweb to keep me happy. :-)

(Bubyeee to the gorgeous cat next door that would wake us up every morning with his very, very loud Meows to be let inside).

I sent you a request on Goodreads. I didn't know you were on there. :)

My reading has slowed down lately. I need to read Time Travelers Wife.
