As TSwift says, “August slipped away into a moment in time” (can we also take a minute to a acknowledge Taylor Swift’s tenth album announcement!?? I genuinely can’t believe my favorite season is beginning to come to a close – no worries though, I plan on having some more pool and beach days on the weekends this month.
My favorites See You Yesterday by Rachel Lynn Solomon, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin, A Summer Affair by Elin Hilderbrand, The Wedding Season by Katy Birchall, and I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy. I also really enjoyed Just Another Love Song by Kerry Winfrey, Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood, and You Made Me a Fool of Death with Your Beauty by Awaeke Emezi.

Never Have I Ever S3 (Netflix) – Never Have I Ever is genuinely one of the best shows. This show makes me laugh out loud every episode, and the character & plot development (not to mention the love triangles) have been so well done.
Indian Matchmaking S2 (Netflix) – This is one of my favorite ‘reality’ shows on Netflix – it feels more like a docuseries – and I can’t wait for more!
Also Watched: Glow Up S4 (Netflix), Below Deck Mediterranean (Bravo)
