Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner, dedicated to spotlighting and pinpointing some of the things over the week that have caught my attention more than usual, things I’ve particularly loved, etc.
So now that you guys know what it’s all about, how about you join in the fun and hop on over to Josie’s Book Corner and check out how to do so~
September is beginning to be a very busy month for me at work. So busy that I’m falling behind on the blogging community. But there is one blogger I want to spotlight this week for our similar tastes in books, and boys! HAHA
Its none other then Aria @Aria Stuck in Wonderland! I try to keep up with her posts each week! I love her reviews since they are usually books that I’ve either read or want to read. We have pretty much like the same types of books so I always know that her reviews will appeal to me.
But that’s not all! She has hauls, tags, memes, and other fun bookish posts as well. One of my favorites has been her “Aria Asks” feature where she asks a book related question to her follows! So there is a lot of fun to be had over at her blog so if you haven’t checked her out, then what are you waiting? Click the link and go follow her!
This week I want to spotlight a fun post I’ve seen going around the book blogging community. It is none other than the “Read This? Watch This!” post. CW from Read, Think, Ponder had some awesome choices for hers! I liked that she didn’t just choose TV shows, but also included movies and anime into the mix.
My favorite pairing would have to be The Young Elites and Beyond the Boundary as I’ve read and watched both options and now that I think about it, they are a prefect match! Another good pairing was Saga and Firefly. An awesome sci-fi graphic novel and an equally as awesome sci-fi television show!
So if you haven’t checked out her post yet, please do so now: Read This? Watch This!
The book I want to spotlight this week is a book that I recently finished and absolutely loved! It’s none other than Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson.
I have this huge obsession with superheros which stems from my love for comics and is further rooted now after reading this book. If you haven’t read this book, then you are seriously missing out! Here’s the synopsis:
Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills.
Nobody fights the Epics…nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them.
And David wants in. He wants Steelheart – the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David’s father. For years, like the Reckoners, David’s been studying, and planning – and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience.
He’s seen Steelheart bleed. And he wants revenge.
Tell me that doesn’t sound so good?? So go out and read this book while I wait here and bask in the perfection that it was.
Not much happened this week to warrant a spotlighted moment, but I will tell you about this crazy storm Winnipeg had. (That is currently where I live). Monday morning at around 5am I was awoken by a loud explosion. As I sleep in the basement of my sister’s house, it’s not very often that I get to here thunderstorms/rain from down there. So when this explosion woke me up in a shock I was sure that the house above me was no longer there. We were under attack and the house is now exploded. (Let me remind you it’s 5am and I was dead asleep, so this is totally logically thinking on my part).
I ran up stairs to find the house still intact and that it was only thunder and lightning right above the house that caused that loud explosion and the many many more that occurred afterward as well. Rain was coming down in buckets that it was so hard to even see out the windows. I was in heaven. Thunderstorms and rain in general are so calming. Is it like that for you guys as well?
To tie into the that huge thunderstorm we had, the app I want to spotlight this week is:
Trouble sleeping? Rain, Rain helps you fall asleep fast! Let 49 high-quality endless sounds lull you to sleep in no time! Mix and match any combination of sounds! Download the app that over two million people have used to fall asleep today!
This app helps me fall asleep on the nights that I have troubles doing so. It has so many different types of rainfall and storms to listen to. Really calms me down and puts my brain to rest. I find that I have well rested sleeps on the nights I use this app. So if you have troubles sleeping like I do sometimes, then I recommend this app to you!
I have two great songs to spotlight this week, one being a KPOP song and one being an English pop track from a guy with some really outrageous hair style!
Ice Cream Cake – Red Velvet
In anticipation for their upcoming first album release next week, I thought it was only fitting to spotlight one of my favorite songs from them! This fun addictive pop/trap song has everything you could want in a song. Cool beat, catchy lyrics, and fun choreography! Check out the Music Video here: Ice Cream Cake
Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd
I can’t say I’m a fan of his music, but this song has been stuck in my head all week. It’s played constantly at work and is extremely addictive. When it’s not on at work, its playing non stop in my head to the point that it annoys the hell out of my sister as I can’t sing anything more than “I can’t feel my face when I’m with … but I love it… but I love it…”
Lastly I bring you another quote from Twitter this week!
“You are not true best friends if you wouldn’t give them your phone to reply to sexts for you.” – Ryan @ThatsSoRyannn
Sorry if it’s a little crude to some of my follows. It just reminded me so much of me and my best friends. We once took my best friends phone and used her Tinder app to sext random guys for her. She couldn’t stop laughing at the things we wrote and the responses she was getting! That’s true friendship right there~
Well there ya have it guys! My third Spotlight Saturday post! Thanks again Josie for letting me join in on the fun. Tell me what you guys want to put a spotlight on, I would love to know!
Until next time,
