Welcome to the Weekly Wrap-up with Bookmunchies. This is our weekly update that combines Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s SUNDAY POST and Tynga’s Reviews‘ STACKING THE SHELVES. This is a post to share news, to recap the week on the blog, share new reads and new books, and upcoming fun for the week ahead!
Hey guys, Jackie here,
How did March happen? It feels like February barely existed, but I’m not complaining because it means it’s almost spring. And spring means warmer weather. I miss the Californian sunshine and I’m very glad that we don’t get too humid like other countries do during the summer (summer in Japan and China is not fun, if you were ever thinking about planning to go during the summer months). Is anyone planning on watching the Beauty and the Beast live action next week? I’m not sure if I will, but I was listening to the soundtrack and I’m not too crazy about Emma Watson’s singing voice. It’s lovely at times, but I feel like she can’t sing well. Speaking of which, I just recently rewatched the animated version and it’s hard not to tear up in certain parts of the movie. I feel like as an adult rewatching all these Disney movies makes me tear up more than I did when I was watching them as a kid. I mean I almost cried while watching Toy Story 3 because how can you not especially with that kind of ending? And I’m not a crier when I watch movies. Though while I want to do a Disney movie marathon one day, I still can’t bring myself to see certain Disney films like 101 Dalmatians and The Lion King despite the fact that I can rewatch Mulan so many times without a problem.
