My Favorite…Audiobook of 2020 Thus Far

Hello friend and fellow book lovers! Once again, I’m going with another bookish prompt for “My Favorite” this week. Amidst everything going on, I’ve been shifted my focus from reading on my kindle to reading with my headphones in. I think it’s really nice to hear a story read to you sometimes and with me only going outside to work, it makes me feel a little better.

BookishlyRebecca is now the host of the “My Favorite” meme, a weekly meme posted on Wednesday. Originally started by Maureen’s Books, she agreed to let me take over.

As Maureen described it, “In this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it. The world can be a dark place and it’s to share something positive. Each week I will post a new My Favorite.. post about one subject and I’ll tell you all about it. And the best part? Everyone is welcome to join. The only thing you’ll have to do is sign up on my weekly post, link back to this post and visit others.”

At the end of each month, I’ll post the prompts for the following month so be sure to check back then!


I narrowed this down to two books so I’m going to include them both because oh well. Who cares? Lol

When looking through my Goodreads shelf, I saw both of Betty White’s books on there, both of which I listened to on audio. White narrates them herself and honestly, it’s just glorious. This one basically spans most of her career from starting off as a young actress to becoming a seasoned professional. It truly was a deep-dive into both her career and life so if you’re a fan of Betty White, I’d highly recommend it. Plus you get to hear her talk about Golden Girls which for me was incredible.

The other book is one I read last month and that’s Dear Girls by Ali Wong which she narrates herself. This book is basically Ali writing letters to her daughters and giving them advice. Unlike Betty’s, this one focuses more on her life rather than her career but it’s just so wonderful. I don’t know if it’s because of Wong’s narration but I LOVED this book a lot. Despite everything going on in the world, this book made me feel hopeful and excited 🙂

My Favorite…Anticipated Spring Book Release

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Since I did the only movie prompts last month, I decided to start off April with a bookish prompt. With everything going on, I’m sure most of us are looking forward to the future. At this rate, I’m just looking forward to being able to go out to eat again. Either way, I figured I’d include something about books and hopefully, give these books the attention they deserve.

For this one, I’m going with a book I’ve heard a lot about recently. I didn’t know much about it but I’m pretty excited about it. That’s Beach Read by Emily Henry and as someone who didn’t like another one of her books, this is a big deal.

I’m pretty sure this is a romance between two authors which is unique and such a cool idea. In the few reviews I’ve seen, the book also has some great banter which is something I enjoy. This book really wasn’t on my radar but after hearing all of the praise, it’s one I know I’ll either have to buy or request from my library.

My Favorite…Movie of All-Time

Hello friends and fellow movie lovers! It’s the last themed week of “My Favorite” and time to look ahead to another month. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though as we still have this week’s prompt to talk about. Personally, I have a lot of favorite movies so it’s going to be hard to narrow it down. Nevertheless, let’s get into the prompts for April and my answer 😉

April Prompts:

  • April 1st: My Favorite…Anticipated Spring Book Release
  • April 8th: My Favorite…Audiobook of 2020 Thus Far
  • April 15th: My Favorite…TV Show Currently Airing
  • April 22nd: My Favorite…Book Series to Finish This Year
  • April 29th: My Favorite…Upcoming Author


With the prompts out of the way, let’s get into my answer for this week’s “My Favorite” and what a tough one this was. Personally, I have a lot of movies that I enjoy and a few that stand out no doubt. Picking a favorite movie of all-time though is pretty tough.

After narrowing down my options, I picked one so my favorite movie of all-time is easily Creed 2. I love the Creed franchise and I think that it’s one of the best follow-ups to an iconic film series. It was an incredibly unique way to introduce Rocky to an entirely new generation. Between the two films, I’d say that Creed 2 is stronger as we already knew Adonis and everything was established.

Creed 2 felt more high stakes for Adonis and was an incredibly emotional film. I remember both my dad and me getting choked up in the theater. The movie was just so incredible and I know I need to rewatch it. If you’ve never watched either of the Creed films, then you need to because they’re incredible. Plus Michael B. Jordan is bae so that’s something, too 😛

My Favorite…Book-To-Movie Adaptation

Hello friends and fellow movie lovers! It’s Wednesday and that means that it’s time for another “My Favorite” post. If you’ve been following, then you’ll know that I’ve been doing a monthly theme. It’s hard to believe that next week is our last week of this but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

If I had to pick a favorite book-to-movie adaptation, it would have to be Matilda. I recently read the book for the first time and since then, I’ve been itching to watch the movie. While I haven’t watched it yet, I realized that a lot of it carries over from the book. A few things are changed but for the most part, it’s a faithful adaptation. Plus it’s such an iconic movie from my childhood, too.

 

I figured I’d also include a few honorable mentions: To All The Boys I’ve Loved BeforeThe Princess DiariesThe Sisterhood of the Traveling PantsDiary of a Wimpy Kid and Coraline.

My Favorite…Movie from Childhood

Hello friends and fellow movie lovers! Once again, we’re talking about movies on “My Favorite” this week. This time, it’s all about our favorite movies from when we were kids. Personally, I have a lot of movies but I know the one that stands out above the rest so let’s get into it.

For me, my favorite movie from childhood was easily Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I watched that movie SO many times and I remember loving it. I’m not sure if it was because of Belle, the romance or maybe, just the colors. Honestly, I thought that the movie was amazing and it still is. Now I can appreciate it for so much more and I love singing along to the songs as I did when I was younger.

As a kid, I loved a lot of Disney movies including Aladdin, The Lion King, Mulan, and Pocahontas. All of those movies are ones that I enjoy rewatching now, too. While I enjoyed other movies, I have to say that Disney movies were a huge part of my childhood.

My Favorite…Movie of 2019

Hello friends and fellow movie lovers! Welcome to “My Favorite” on bookishlyrebecca and this month, we’re talking about movies. You’ll find out why as I have an exciting post coming out that features movies. Without giving away too much, let’s get into my favorite movie that I watched that was released in 2019.

When looking back at the movies I saw in theaters in 2019, there were a lot. As someone who prefers TV shows, this was a huge surprise to me. Thankfully, that made narrowing my list down a little easier. For me though, my favorite movie of 2019 had to be Frozen II because it completely exceeded any and all of my expectations.

Somehow, Frozen II made me love the franchise even more. While I enjoyed the original film, I think the sequel explored more nuanced topics and gave a lot more depth to the characters especially Kristoff. It was also a lot funnier than the original and I think that the film was incredibly well-done. I’d also be remiss not to include Hustlers and Avengers: Endgame as I enjoyed both of those movies, too.

What was your favorite movie in 2019? Any movies you’d recommend?

My Favorite…Book Recommendation from a Fellow Blogger + March Prompts

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! For this week’s topic, I decided to go with a somewhat unique one and thus this one was born. Personally, I think it’s really fun to think back about the recommendations you’ve gotten and who gave them to you. For me, I’ve gotten a lot of good recommendations from fellow bloggers so I figured why not shout out of those out? 😀

March Topics

For March, I’m going with a movie theme. I have a post coming up so you’ll see how it plays into that soon 😉

  • March 4th: My Favorite…Movie of 2019
  • March 11th: My Favorite…Movie from Childhood
  • March 18th: My Favorite…Book-to-Movie Adaptation
  • March 25th: My Favorite…Movie of All-Time


When coming up with my answer for this prompt, it was hard to narrow it down. There is one book that seems to stand above the rest, though. I feel like I mention this recommendation a lot but it really did help me. My favorite book recommendation from a fellow blogger has to be It’s Called a Breakup Because It’s Broken: The Smart Girl’s Break-Up Buddy which was recommended to me by Kristin from Kristin Kraves Books.

She’s basically a blogging queen so when she recommended this, I immediately went to Barnes & Noble to buy it. I devoured it in a day and it made me feel so much lighter than I had in days. I was still reeling from my breakup and it felt nice to read something that I understood or that understood me. Honestly, I don’t know if I would’ve gotten over my breakup if it wasn’t for that book. So thank you, Kristin, because you helped me out a ton with that ❤
