February Favorites


I was going to do a post on self care, but I wasn't sure if anyone would even want to read that. So instead, I thought I would share some of the things I have been loving. Maybe I will make it a monthly thing.



Music


Lights


I have liked Lights for forever, but this album resonated with me on a personal level, she even has a comic that she created to go along with it and the music videos for it are amazing.

This is the best song. (wouldn't let me use the official video)



Paramore


This album is my aesthetic. It's weird how I felt like this band grew up with me. All of the songs are relatable, and catchy. 

                                            


NF

The first time I heard NF on the radio I screamed, this guy deserves all his success. He works insanely hard to produce quality music and it shows.


Books


This is not the type of book I usually read, it's a romance not to mention a fluffy Y.A romance. Jenny B Jones brand off kilter humor, makes me stray from my comfort zone. Because I love her books as sappy and romance filled as they are. This one in particular resonated with me. More for the emotional struggles Harper is dealing with then the romance. It has a plot similar to The Duff, with a girl tutoring a popular jock in turn for help with winning over her crush. You can probably guess what happens, it's great though and made me laugh a ton. It also deals with some heavy emotional stuff.

Our family was a train flying off the tracks. And I was simply an onlooker, standing helplessly to the side watching it all happen.- I'll Be Yours

My friend presented a weak hand, as if she were Lizzy Bennet waiting for Mr. Darcy to press his angsty lips upon.-I'll Be Yours

First of all, I have not made out with every girl at school. We have five lesbians, and I've totally let them have their space. -I'll Be Yours

It's a great read if you need a good laugh or cry.







I haven't finished this one yet, but what I have read was incredibly entertaining. If your looking for a fun twist on fairy tales this series is what you need.

Yesterday, I was a respectable private detective who didn't believe in magic. Tonight, I'm a hairy gargoyle leaping across the rooftops of Talesend with a magical girl on my back.

 The Garden wasn't safe before the house got took over by a homicidal flower.


Tv shows

Full House


My sister and I are binge watching this, and let me tell you it's a great way to end your day. Netflix was supposed to take it off on the 15th but didn't so my sister and I are convinced that we saved it somehow. It's the best!




 

 The Blacklist


This is the show that I watch with my Dad. He constantly quotes Reddington, it never fails to make me smile. I will admit it's been floundering a bit this season, but Reddington makes it worth it. (Super violent)



 Movies

So there are a few of these I have meant to see and haven't, The Greatest Showman, Black Panther, Jumanji... the list is endless. So none of the ones I'm going to mention are new or anything.

Murder on the Orient Express


This was so well done, and such a compelling mystery. I feel like this one got a bit overlooked, I went to see it twice in theater it's exceptional.






Mission Impossible

Anyone else hyped for the new Mission Impossible?



I love these movies. The heists, humor, and explosions are blended together perfectly. I've been re-watching them. So good!


For those of you who are still skeptical Jeremy Renner aka Hawkeye stars in them.  He has way more screen time.









Oceans 11, 12, 13



So I'm not excited for Ocean's Eight. I wanted the boys back together instead we are getting Danny's sister with her own team. I'll give it a shot though, if for nothing else but for Matt Damon's cameo. (word of warning, these shows have a heavy amount of profanity, so if that's not your thing better stay clear)




That's about it. Hope you enjoy this look into my ever changing tastes.


The actual favorite, Loki!

  2. I am so excited for the next Mission Impossible, but it looks like Jeremy Renner won't be in it. *sniff* I hope I'm wrong because he is awesome in them!

    You have an NF song featured!! His music is awesome!!!

    Also, you couldn't have picked a better way to end this post than with a cat. #epicness And a black cat at that, which is even better! I really enjoyed reading this post!

    1. Me too! Aw, I was really hoping he would be, especially if this is the last one.

      Always happy to find other fans of his, he really is! :)

      Thank you! He he, I love black cats. I'm so glad, thanks for commenting!

  3. Okay, first of all I would loooove a self care post from you. I've been trying really hard to take better care of myself and am looking for any and ALL tips. So I would most DEFINITELY read that!

    Secondly, these types of posts are so much fun! I'm so nosy and love seeing what books and entertainment all my friends are immersing in. XD

    I'M SO EXCITED YOU'RE READING THE BEAST OF TALESEND!!! I'm so in love with that book! (I know I'm really subtle about it, too. :P)

    Oh my goodness, FULL HOUSE. My childhood! I watch it allll the time even though I can literally quote every episode word for word. It's bad. XD But it's my comfort show!

    I really wanted to see Murder on the Orient Express, but I missed seeing it in theaters. So it's released now? Because I need to watch it! I loved the book. Though...it looks like they really turned away from the book buuut what's new? XD

    To end all this...
    YOUR CAT IS SO FLUFFY I NEED TO PETS IIIITTTT!

    1. Oh good, I really want to do a post like that. Hopefully I will have some good ones!

      I always loved reading other bloggers post like this. I'm nosy too! Also it's a good way to find new books, and music. :D

      He he! I'm already in love with it too! Just the kind of book I have been looking for.

      I sadly didn't grow up with it, but I love it! That's not bad, that's awesome. It's definitely comforting.

      It should be out sometime this month I think. I loved it so much! I have only gotten half way through the book, but I don't think their were any huge changes. Mostly just some characters were changed or merged into one, I think. True, they always change something.

      XD She is!! She gets cranky and won't let me pet her.

  4. I’d read anything you put out! ...ok, I didn’t read the Last Jedi review, I admit, but I can’t stand Star Wars so there’s that.
    But anyway.
    This post was so fun!
    I Lloveee Full House. *uncle Jessie*
    Me and my dad used to watch Blacklist too! We didn’t keep up with it regularly because It really bugged my mom, but we thought the main guy was terrifyingly hilarious.
    Those books all sound so good! I love the quotes.
    And I was no expecting your cat to actually resemble Loki somehow, but here I stand, corrected.

    1. Thanks Maddie, that's sweet! I understand, everyone has their dislikes.
      Glad you think so!
      Uncle Jessie is definitely my favorite.
      That's so cool that you guys watched it too. My mom hates it too! That is the perfect way to describe him!
      They are, I love books with comedy.
      She not only looks like him, she acts like him. She hates affection, and struts around like the
      villain she is.

  5. I so need to see Murder on the Orient Express :(

  6. I'll Be Yours sounds so cute!! I need to read more Jenny B. Jones, because all I've read by her is There You'll Find Me (which was pretty beautiful <3).

    I neeeeeed to read Murder on the Orient Express! And then watch the movie! Because the story sounds AMAZING.

    Hmmmm, I think I've heard of Lights. I'll have to look up her music!

    I LOVE posts like this!! And you've got what looks like good choices. *nodnod*

    1. It is! I adore her books, they always make me laugh. That one was good! Beckett and Finley were adorable.

      Yes, I highly recommend both. It's super intriguing.

      You should, she has nice music to write to.

      I love writing them! Thank you!
