Hi guys! It’s the end of the month which means it’s time for my new monthly feature Beyond the Books where I talk about all the random things I’ve been watching or loving during that month. Guys, I’m finally getting used to my new schedule which means I actually watched a lot more things this month than the previous months. Let’s just say I had a really good month in terms of TV shows and movies. I have a few things I loved during the month of November so I’ll have a lot to talk about once again. But let’s see what I’ve been watching and listening to.
The Voice Portugal
Once again, I’m still watching The Voice Portugal. It’s what I do every sunday night and I love it. Actually, I’m writing this post on a sunday and today is the day that the live shows start. I’m excited for that. As I said before, there is so much talent this season. For me it’s still the best season so far.
This is Us
I haven’t been watching any TV show the past few months but I finally started This is Us. Well, I can’t really say I started because I only watched one episode but I really enjoyed it and I plan on keep watching it. I only have another priorities before (yes, I’m looking at you Gilmore Girls… I’ll have time soon)
Star Trek Beyond
After a few months I finally watched Star Trek Beyond. I loved it and it made me laugh and cry… well, I didn’t cry but it was still sad sometimes, especially when I realized this was on of Anton Yelchin’s last movies. Chekov is one of my favorite characters and every time I smiled I was sad. Let’s just all agree that life is f*cking unfair sometimes.
This is one of those movies I already watched a few times but it was on TV on day when I got home and it was just starting so I watched it again. I love the songs okay?? Also, I don’t miss any opportunity to see Aaron Tveit and sing One Day More (and let’s not forget about Eddie Redmayne XD).
Remember that time Spice Girls had a masterpiece of a movie (and by masterpiece I mean a really weird movie)?? Well, it was on TV a couple a weeks ago and I ended up watching it. To be honest, I know it’s not a great movie but I grew up loving the Spice Girls so I watched it. This movie is great to take a trip down memory lane XD.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Just like almost everyone I ended up watching Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them. Also, just like almost everyone, I loved it. It was such an amazing movie. It made me laugh, almost cry and trying to guess a lot of things that happened XD. And can we talk about how adorable Newt Scamander is?? I LOVED HIM (just like I loved the other characters in the main group. Basically is an amazing movie and everyone should watch it :D.
Also, can we talk about all the creatures in this movie?? I don’t even know how many times I said “OMG! So adorable” in this movie because of them. Now, where can I get a Niffler??? I would love one. Look at this cuteness:
I didn’t listen to a lot of songs in November. My music player broke in the beginning of the month and I only managed to get a new one today. Seeing that I mostly listen to some music on the train when I’m going to work there wasn’t a lot I could do about it. I still listened to a few songs when I was home but mostly to Rita Ora (I’ll talk why next), Phillip Phillips and most recently A Fine Frenzy. And by recently I mean since the day I found out the actress playing Queenie in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the girl from A Fine Frenzy XD. But here are some songs I’ve been obsessing with:
Rita Ora X Tezenis Show
As you might see from everything I talked about before I spent a lot of my time indoors this month. It’s cold and I just want to be home XD. But in the beginning of the month Rita Ora had a free mini-concert in Lisbon because of the release of her underwear collection in Tezenis and I had to go watch it. I’m not going to say I’m huge fan of Rita Ora but I love her songs. Her set was really short but I loved it anyway. She actually started the show inside the store so we only could see her in a projection but then she went to the platform they had there and it was awesome. I also loved that before her there was a portuguese singer that I love, Filipe Gonçalves, singing a lot of known hits for about 2 hours. I really enjoyed everything about the show. I wanted to add a lot of pics in here but my phone died when I was in the show and the pictures I did have were pretty bad. I do have one picture and I found a short video on Youtube so you can see how awesome it was :D.
Here’s what I’ve been doing Beyond the Books during November. I’ll be back next month and I’m pretty sure it will be awesome because I already a few things I plan on doing. If you like any of the things that I’ve talked about don’t forget to comment too so we can fangirl about it :D. And if you have any recommendation don’t forget to tell me in the comments.
