This month has been a little bit better that last month watching vise. I truly enjoyed all of this shows so much. This show contains two kdramas, a Studio Ghibli animation, a romance movie and one of my favorite Turkish tv shows. I hope you give some of these shows and movies a chance, and if you do I hope you end up liking them as much as I did.

I watched The Lake House on a random, since I needed a good romance movie. I can say that The Lake House made me cry like a little baby. I completely loved this movie, everyone should watch it this movie. The Lake House is one of the saddest and the funniest movie at the same time. Sandra and Keanu were freaking perfect together in this movie. I have already watched this movie a few times and I always end up falling in love all over again. It’s always so beautiful.

Hi Bye, Mama completely broke my heart into pieces, this show took me on a emotional roller-coaster that completely ruined me. When I watch kdramas, I usually go for the romance ones but I decided to give this show a chance and see if I will like it, but I did more than like it, I loved it completely with my whole heart. It truly is a beautiful show that everyone needs to watch, just know it’s very emotional and heartwrecking. I also added it on the list of my most favorite kdramas which I will post later this month.

4. KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE 魔女の宅急便

I am now convinced that Studio Ghibli is one of the best japanese production company. Kiki’s Delivery Service is now my most favorite Studio Ghibli animations, I am going to be watching more of them soon. So I am sure that I will have more favorites, because I heard that Studio Ghibli animations know how to steal you heart.

This show will forever be one of my favorites. This month a little clip of this show showed up on my recommended on youtube so I decided to watch it all over again. And guys I can say I freaking love it as much as I did the first time, it always ends up consuming me. I truly love it and I can tell you if you want to dive into Turkish tv shows this one is perfect for you, it’s light, funny, emotional, beyond romantic and it has two seasons for you to indulge in.

So these are some of the movies/tv shows I have watched, hope you enjoyed my small reviews and I hope you will give these movies/tv shows a chance if you haven’t already watched them.
