I have decided to start doing monthly non-bookish favourites. I think it is fun to talk about things other than books on this blog every once in awhile, and I figured this was a great way to do it! I will talk about all of the movies, TV shows, music, food, etc I loved during the month.
Okay… I am in love with this movie. I can not stop thinking about it! I have watched all of the behind the scenes stuff and interviews on Youtube. It has been a long time since I was this passionate about a movie. I have adored Taron Egerton since Kingsman (another one of my favourite movies) but I wasn’t sure how he would do as Elton John… he killed it! And he has an amazing singing voice. The entire movie is just beautiful. You have to see it!
Dead to Me
I am not quite done with Dead to Me, but I have really enjoyed what I have watched so far. It reminds me of Grace and Frankie in some ways, but with more of an edge. The acting is phenomenal and I am so intrigued to see where the story is going. I am thrilled that it was picked up for a second season!
Surprising no one.. I have really only been listening to the music from Rocketman so I will just leave these two clips here… You’re welcome!
I went to Montreal at the beginning of the month to celebrate my 30th birthday and it was incredible. It is such a beautiful city and there was so much to do! We ate at some amazing restaurants, went to a few gorgeous bookstores, and fell in love with Old Montreal. Everyone was extremely friendly and I will definitely visit again!
I, like every other Canadian, became very wrapped up in the Raptors this month! It was amazing to see the entire country come together and support this team. It is not often that our teams win championships so this was exciting.
My friend gifted me this mug for my birthday- how awesome is that? They also gave me the matching shirt. I have always been a huge F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan and can pretty much quote every episode, so this was the perfect gift for me! So clever and thoughtful!
Have you watched, listened to, or tried any of my favourites? What was your favourite non-bookish thing this month?
If you have seen Rocketman, let’s gush together in the comments!

Lovely post, Kristin! I think it’s such a great idea to talk about nonbookish favorites!
AH! And consider me 150% willing to scream and gush about Rocketman (!!!!!!). The movie itself was filmed beautifully, and Taron’s acting was actually unreal. I haven’t been able to think of anything else or listen to any other music, just like you!
I love your F.R.I.E.N.D.S mug! ❤ hope you had a great birthday 🎂
I really did. Thank you!
I did Montreal a few years ago and loved it too- what an amazing city!
It’s really amazing. I was blown away!
It is a pretty city and I was amazed at how people could switch from French to English so easily. I always have to think about what I want to say!
Okay … firstly? You have AMAZING friends! I want that mug!!! I’m stupidly obsessed with that show lol! I haven’t seen Rocketman yet but I plan to. I’m so glad you had a lovely time in Montreal! I’m in Ottawa which is like 2 hours away, so my friends and I plan to make some day trips 🙂
Don’t I? I almost cried because it was just such a thoughtful gift!
You need to come back and let me know what you thought of Rocketman!
I’m in Sudbury but find myself in Ottawa quite a bit. Love that city!
I most definitely will! I was just SO busy this month that I didn’t have time to see it!
And isn’t it great! I’ve been here for just 3.5 years now and I don’t know if I could ever leave ha-ha
That mug is just so perfect!! Love your non-bookish favorite posts as always!
Thank you! It is such a great gift, isn’t it?!

Hahah I know!!
That mug is the cutest thing I’ve seen all week, what a thoughtful friend 🙂 congratulations to Canada on the Raptors victory 👏🏾 and happy belated birthday 🎉
Isn’t it so great?! I was blown away.
Omg I loved the show Dead To Me! I’m so excited they got renewed for a second season.
It’s so great!
That mug is amazing!!!
Omg Dead to Me is amazing!! I just finished that this week and gahhh I want more! Such a great show… you think you know where something is going and BAM you just don’t!
I was so surprised by the mug!
I feel like I could have binged Dead to Me in a couple days but I’m trying not to rush through it. So good!
😀 Oh I watched it in a week because I would watch 2 epiosdes a day because I couldn’t get enough!
Rocketman was SO! GOOD! Taron absolutely smashed it, I was so impressed. I watched the film, like, two weeks ago now? And my current Spotify playlist is still full of Elton John. Amazing!
Yes!!! I am tempted to go see it again! I have had Elton John music stuck in my head ever since and not complaining.
I’ve been wanting to check out Dead to Me. It seems like a lot of people are really into it. I love that mug!
I finished Dead to Me last night! It is awesome!
Thank you! Some how your comment ended up in my spam–which makes me mad because I have been looking for someone to rave about Rocketman with!
