Hey you guys! For today’s post, I thought I would talk about some of the things I have been loving lately and include some non-bookish things too because there are quite a few of those that I’ve been really enjoying! I hope you guys don’t mind the mix up in topic but I thought it would be fun to show a bit more of myself that’s not related to books.
Niall Horan’s Debut Album ‘Flicker‘
Most of you guys probably don’t know that I used to be a huge One Direction fan to the point where my Tumblr blog was pretty much solely dedicated to all things 1D. But I’ve kind of left the fandom ever since and have limited myself to following the guys individually on their social media which has been such a blessing! No more fandom drama.
The most exciting One Direction related thing that happened recently was the release of Niall Horan’s debut album ‘Flicker’ which is so freaking fantastic. And so, so, so up my alley! I knew I would probably like it from what I had heard before the release but then I got the album and listened to it non stop for three weeks. Just the album and nothing else. On repeat. Day and night. It was glorious.
On Monday night, I decided that I wanted to listen to Simon VS to help myself fall asleep right. Sounds like a good, solid plan to all of us. The thing is? I couldn’t stop listening. I would set the sleep timer for 30 minutes and keep resetting it to 30 minutes because I didn’t want to stop listening yet. I did fall asleep at some point though and once I woke up, I just continued listening and finished the audiobook the next day.
You guys might remember that I just read this book not too long ago (and you’d be right, I finished it early July!) and I don’t even know why I had this sudden urge to reread this book, but I did and I think I just fell in love with the story and characters, even more, this time around! And I kept wishing I had a physical copy already so I can tab all those fun scenes – soon, hopefully!
FOX’ ‘The Gifted’
Most of you who have been following my blog for a while probably know that I am a big Marvel fan (especially the movies and Netflix shows) and when I saw the trailer for FOX’s The Gifted over the summer (and spotted Blair Redford in the cast) I just knew I had to give the show a chance and I have to say: I really enjoy it! I have about zero knowledge of anything X-Men or mutant related and I still find myself really engaged with what is going on and definitely recommend you guys check it out too!
Reading, Reading And Even More Reading
I have no idea what kind of switch got turned recently but I have honestly been in such a reading mood lately! I want to read all of the books out there and if I could I would read them all at the same time too! These days, whenever I’m bored and don’t find anything to grasp my attention on the internet, I’ll just shut my laptop and reach for a book. Do you know when that happened last? Because I can’t remember. Usually, I will just check the same handful of websites over and over again hoping something will just pop up.
How about you guys? What are some of your recent favorites? Did you find any new music that you are just absolutely in love with? Is there a book you just can’t stop thinking about? Or a tv show you’ve been loving? Let me know in the comments below, I would love to hear all about your favorites!
