Hey there, happy readers. Welcome back. The seventh (!!) month of 2020 is come and gone. Now we’re hours away from beginning August, only this time around, for us the weather is supposed to be much cooler, and I AM HERE FOR IT. Regardless of weather patterns and changes, the first of a new month comes to Finding Wonderland with the usual: another installment of ‘Month in Review July 2020.’
As I run through each month; still keeping up the whole publishing lots of new content around trend here, which I’m still excited about. But as I ask each “month in review,” do make sure to share some of your favorite discoveries in the comments – or what you’re looking for from bloggers; is there a topic, trend, niche or anything goes you’re looking to see more of?
Ciao, July 2020. Bonjour, August 2020!
Let’s do this!!
Month in Review: July 2020 Recap + #Booktube Talk
1: Hallmark | Hallmark has new premieres in August. Of course we write about them, and I want to know, which are you ready to add to the DVR?
2: Popular List! | [Asking this again, just because I’d love your thoughts] Speaking of lists, one thing I’ve learned as I put together these wrap up publications, everyone seems to search for and/or like a “clean romance” movie list. This list seems to constantly make the cut. Reminds me, I need to get to work on the updated “part 2” [wholesome] clean romance movie list. And it is coming! What are some of your favorites that would fit these parameters?
3: Netflix Queue | Shared an update ‘Netflix queue’ post. What are you watching?
4: New Reviews! | This past month I’ve shared quite a lot of new reviews. From books like Going the Distance to The Rise and Fall of Jane (Jane Eyre re-telling) and The Upside of Falling; and films like the Netflix original, Tall Girl, there’s been a lot. What did you add to your archives this month?
5: Taylor Swift | When it comes to pop culture news, perhaps the biggest news is the surprise drop of an eighth album from Taylor Swift. Naturally I wrote a “What to Know” post the day of the announcement and then a ranking of the Folklore songs. What do you love or dislike about this new sound?

(Blog posts that, while not necessarily the most popular, were fun to write)
1: ‘Always Be My Maybe’ is the Cute But Imperfect Netflix Romance | I mean… this one is cute albeit not one in which I like the hero.
2: A Fun Look at the New 2020 Hallmark Christmas Movies | Because who doesn’t love to scoop out the upcoming Hallmark movies?
3: ‘Feel the Beat’: One of the Best Feel Good Netflix Movies | This movie is all kinds of feel good vibes and I am HERE for it.
4: ‘The Princess Diaries’: One of the Happy Disney Icons | This charmer turned 19 years old this week.
5: [Six] of the Reasons I Do (and don’t!) Love NBC’s ‘Chuck’ | Had to write something about this oldie NBC show despite the fact that I am way behind in tuning in.
6: This is the Sound of ‘Folklore’ New Taylor Swift Ranked! | Because I SO enjoy putting these together.
