Current Favorites

Morning you guys! I hope you’re all having a fantastic day (or, had a fantastic day depending on when you’re reading this post!) and haven’t been up since 1am because what is a proper night’s sleep right? When your body can decide to take a ‘nap’ instead? I mean, it’s not like I wanted to actually get a full night’s sleep when I fell asleep while watching Guardians Of The Galaxy?

But yeah, enough about that. What I actually wanted to talk to you guys about for today’s post are some of the things I am currently loving so, let’s just jump right in, shall we?

Sebastian Stan

You guys are probably aware that the Marvel cast is currently on a huge press tour to promote Avengers: Infinity War (which HOLY SHIT I can’t wait to watch that movie!), right? Yeah, so… a couple of days ago I randomly fell down this hole and I haven’t been able to climb back out again? And said hole is anything and everything Sebastian Stan related. If you follow me over on Twitter you’ve probably heard all about this already because I just won’t shut up about it.

I mean, LOOK at this ‘broken white boy’ aka what Shuri calls Bucky in Black Panther apparently.

See, you guys on here probably know me as this really calm and collected person 99% of the time but oh boy, if you follow me on Twitter you’ve seen my fangirl side a lot more because that’s where that really comes out. But also, I haven’t been in this intense of a fangirl mode for probably at least 8 or more months? When I lost it entirely over Matthew Daddario. That’s basically where I’m at right now.

And I don’t think anyone could blame me, really? Sebastian Stan is the most precious human being ever and he just makes my heart burst with so much love for him? I’ve been down the YouTube rabbit hole quite a bit watching old and new interviews he’s done (if you have the time or need a pick me up – check out ANY of the press him and Anthony Mackie did for Civil War) and the more I watch the more in love with him I fall.

Speaking of Mackie and Sebastian’s interviews, these interviews they did with Winston Duke are HILARIOUS too. Highly recommend!

But the thing is, my brain goes from ‘Oh my god he is the most precious human being! I love him!’ to a more thirsty (let’s put it that way) train of thought way too quickly in certain interview situations and it’s kind of hilarious to watch myself go through all of that daily.

THIS right here was too much. I mean, we’ve got Mr. Hemsworth right there and then to top it all of Sebastian is doing ALL OF THAT.

Okay, wow. We’ll just move right along now because I might fall down that hole again otherwise and I should get this post written first. *hears Tumblr calling me*

Solo One Direction Music

If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know that I really love One Direction (yes, I am a woman in my late 20s who still loves One Direction) but I almost love their solo projects even more – well, minus Harry. His music kind of isn’t really my cup of tea.

I’m pretty sure I shared another favorites post not too long ago but I can’t find it anywhere on my blog so I must’ve deleted it… but yeah, I am a big music lover. In fact, the only times I don’t listen to music is when I’m sleeping or listening to an audiobook. Other than that, I pretty much always have my music turned on.

And more recently I’ve really been enjoying the solo music the One Direction members have been bringing out (I’m including Zayn here, even though he isn’t a member anymore) and I can’t wait to (hopefully soon) listen to solo albums by both Liam and Louis! Those two did so much of the writing for One Direction that I need to know what an entire album by each of them would sound like!

Yes, they’ve both released a fair share of music already, but I want an album already. It’s been too freaking long. And speaking of albums! Niall’s Flicker. Oh my god. That album is so, so good. And he seems to be doing pretty freaking well and my heart just swells with so much pride for him!

Tumblr

A couple of years ago, I was really into Tumblr. I would spend almost as much time on there as I have been spending on creating and running this blog. Or wait, probably a lot more. During my height of being an active fangirl, I would spend most of my time outside of school on there and just reblog alllllll the things of whatever I was loving at the time. I still have my Tumblr account and have actually started using it more actively again these past few days and I am loving it. A lot.

I feel like Tumblr really gives you a chronological view of what I was really, really loving at any given point in time. There was a time period of about 2-ish years were all I talked about was One Direction and it was glorious, not gonna lie.

The main reason why I got back into it was probably the earlier mentioned love for Sebastian Stan because there was just so much content to consume for me? And how could I not jump on that? But then I also randomly ended up talking to a fellow Shadowhunters fan for like 2 hours the first night I was actively on Tumblr again and even though we didn’t really know each other and had never talked before, talking was just so easy. That’s one thing I will forever appreciate and love about fandom: you can strike up a conversation so easily with someone who loves the same thing as you.

I mean, isn’t that why we’re all here too? Talking about books and hoping to talk about them with fellow bookworms?

Leah On The Offbeat

leah on the offbeatActually, I wasn’t going to mention this book again until I would post my review in May but then as I was writing this post I realized that there is no way I can NOT include this book here. I mean, this is a current favorite. A book about a character I love with my entire heart and it just released in the US yesterday (SO PLEASE, IF YOU CAN: GET YOURSELF A COPY OF THIS BOOK) and we all want this book to succeed and be as loved and appreciated as Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda, so please. Show your support.

But yes, this book. Oh, how I love it! I mentioned this on Instagram too, but I honestly sometimes felt like Becky was talking about me in this book. It was almost like she took a look inside my brain and put it to paper in the form of Leah and oh my god. I was hoping to see myself this way in Molly but that never happened but then in walks Leah and just completely sweeps me off my feet with how much I see myself in a lot of her.

I’m actually planning on rereading (probably) both Simon VS and Leah On The Offbeat for my review because I flew through Leah during my first read and I am already super looking forward to it!

My Bullet Journal

Like with Leah On The Offbeat, I feel like this post wouldn’t be complete without me mentioning my bullet journal here!

I’ve given bullet journaling quite a few tries and it never really quite stuck with me until the beginning of 2018 and it’s been going strong ever since! I adore getting to update my spreads daily and just having this one space where I can combine so much while still keeping it organized and easy to navigate. And I’m about to set up my spreads for next month so that will be super fun too! I love getting a fresh start like that each month. 😀

Just in case you’re a new follower and would like to read more about bullet journaling and my journal in particular, I have an entire series going on right now that’ll hopefully help you with any questions you might have – just click here!

  1. I LOVE your Current Favorites Post, because I’m always super interested in seeing what my fellow book bloggers are currently loving that is not necessarily book related 😍

    I have seen your Sebastian Stan obsession take hold on Twitter and I’m 100% here for all the fangirling. He is really cute! 😄
    Oh and Tumblr and still remember the good old days when I was completely obsessed 😂 Nowadays I only use it to reblog pretty fanart/gif sets of my favorite shows. I think it’s amazing that you talked to a fellow SH fan for 2 hours! Fandom really can bring people together! I meet two girls through Tumblr as well and now we’re going to conventions together 😍

    I so want to read Leah on the Offbeat NOW, but I have a few other books I need to get to first 😱 But I can assure you that I will devour it in one day! I’m also so glad that you could see yourself in Leah and really relate to her 💕
    And I would LOVE to see your May Bullet Journal setup 😍 I still haven’t been able to set up mine, because so many things are currently demanding my attention 😭

    As for my current Faves I have been rewatching Avatar since it’s on Netflix and I’m getting all the nostalgic feels 😭 I’m almost finished with Season 3 and my library luckily has the comics, so I will be reading hem next 🙂 It has been a month since I watched it. but I’m also still obsessing over Dark (the Netflix Original), because it’s SO good and I’m so sad it doesn’t come back until the beginning of 2019 😱

    1. Sometimes I’ll remember that there is a VARIETY of people following me on Twitter and I wonder if I shouldn’t be more ‘professional’ because I do share my Twitter whenever I talk about my reach on social media, right? But then again, that’s who I am? So why hide it. xD I’m happy to hear you support my new found obsession! xD

      Ah, that’s so exciting to hear! So far, I’ve never met anyone in real life who I’ve met online through fandom or blogging but that must be so exciting! What is the next convention you guys are going to?

      Don’t you just hate when that happens? I tried to wrap up as much reading as I could before I got my hands on Leah so I could devote my time to it without feeling guilty. I’ll be sharing it on Saturday. 🙂

      Wasn’t Dark a German production too? I think I remember people talk about it so maybe I’ll have to give it a try too! OH I HATE when that happens! Like our lives as bookworms aren’t bad enough already – no! TV shows play us the same way by having too long waiting times in between new seasons!

      1. I do not want ‘professional’ I want all the fangirling 😈 I think that just gives an extra insight in what we love, which I always like seeing! I love cheering people on in their newfound obsessions … and then sometimes falling into them myself 😂

        I’ve only meet very little people, but since we went to the same convention we decided to meet up! The next convention is Purcon4 in June and I’m already very excited!!!

        I sat down and devoured Leah on the Offbeat in one sitting on Tuesday when I had no classes 😀

        Dark is the first German Netflix original and it’s so good!! It’s my new fave thing that I scream to people about, because it’s amaaaaazing 😀 ♥ The waiting times are the worst, because with TV Shows I forget all about them and then I’m suddenly 3 seasons behind xD

        1. Hahahaha, SAME! My friend keeps trying to get me into kpop because she REALLY loves it and we usually end up loving the same stuff at some point but apparently I am putting up much more of a fight this time around. xD And you should ABSOLUTELY follow me down this newfound obsession! IT’S FUN. I can send you all the videos, GIFs and pictures you might need.

          Oh yeah, that makes absolute sense!

          Okay, maybe I’ll get to Dark then! *adds it to already too long list* I also KIND of started Lost In Space the other night because apparently there is a ship there that has the age difference thing going on OH MY GOD. That’s my Thing. But I’ve only seen like half an episode? So we’ll see how that goes. xD

          SAME. Or I’ll be like ‘Oh I’ll just wait a week, then I can watch TWO eps back to back!’ and before I know it, I’m a season behind. xD

          1. Oh I’ve seen so many people on Tumblr turn into kpop fans, it’s amazing to see even though I know nothing about it 😀 feel free to SEND ME EVERYTHING! 😀

            Yeess please, I wasn’t sure if it would be for me. but it’s SO good 😍 I binge watched 7 episodes with my friend last weekend when I was visiting her 😂 I really loved what I saw, but now I haven’t had the time to watch the last episodes 😦

            This is me xD I’m already behind on Supernatural and Shadowhunters and arrrgh I hate it D:

          2. I am basically out here trying to mute accounts left and right because I don’t want something I don’t have an interest in taking up the majority of my timeline. I want to actually see the things I care about.

            Okay, now you’ve made me even more curious about Dark because I don’t often find many binge-worthy shows and since I binged all of Suits season 6 in no time, I need something new to watch!

            Em, please get caught up on Shadowhunters so we can suffer together when the finale airs on Tuesday??? If you’re not too far behind that is, of course!

          3. Me too, it has gotten too exhausting dealing with things I’m not actually interested in!

            DARK DARK DARK!!!! It only has 10 episodes (most are a bit over 50 minutes long), but a great mystery that hooked me and left me shook all the time!

            I STILL HAVEN’T OMGGGGGGGG. I’m so behind on all my favorite shows and all the finales are coming, I’m so going to suffer 😅

          4. WELL, I THINK DARK WILL HAVE TO WAIT A BIT LONGER BECAUSE I’M NOW INTO TIMELESS. Matt Lanter is just too pretty and I think the relationship between his character and the female lead is supposed to be pretty good so I am already anticipating it like nothing else! xD

            DUDE. GOOD LUCK WITH THE SHADOWHUNTERS FINALE WHEN YOU GET AROUND TO IT. GOOD LUCK.

  2. Well here I am. I’m really going to try and comment on your posts more and I have to say I am really happy for you and how your blog has grown! ❤️

    I couldn’t agree more about the 1d part as you know lol. I really need to get into Flicker more because I do really want to love it but for some reason it always takes me a while to properly get into an album.

    I’m so ready for Louis and/or Liam’s Albums to be released. I need more of these two. (as you know I really love Harry’s album and I still jam to it)

    Lowkey I do miss 1d though 🤧😂♥️

    I’m currently loving this certain show which I’m sure you know..it’s shadowhunters! of course. (You right now: *pretends to be shocked*) I’m honestly living for the current season and it keeps getting better and I just love love this show its grown so much and I couldn’t be more proud of it.

    Another thing I love has to be audio books? I never thought I would end up loving them that much but now I associate reading with audio books?? I just really enjoy getting to listen to a book and sort of have it come to life. Some of my favorite ones are illuminae, simon vs, they both die at the end and daughter of the burning city. Also it’s kinda thanks to you because you encouraged me to keep trying out audible. So bless 💕

    1. Hahahahaha, welcome back, Sandra! I’m super happy to see you pop back up on the blog! 🙂 And I hope you know that this blog probably wouldn’t even exist if it wasn’t for you agreeing to do this with me in the first place! ❤ ❤

      Audiobooks are honest to god the BEST thing to ever happen to me! I get SO much more reading done that way because I can speed them up and don't have to read at my own slow pace! And I still need to give Illuminae a proper listen – I haven't gotten around to that book yet! *hides*

  3. I just came back here to properly finish reading this post now that I’ve read Leah on the Offbeat… I was a little too paranoid about spoilers, hahaha.

    But yeah, Leah on the Offbeat is definitely a current favourite. I’ve been barely resisting there to reread it, and instead have spent the last day or two talking about it constantly with my friend, or just staring at it longingly.

    My other current obsession is the Shades of Magic trilogy, because for some reason I waited this long to read it, and I don’t know why, because IT IS SO GOOD! So I’ve been obsessed with that one too, and also trying not to cave and reread it…

    Why do I have Leah on the Offbeat and A Conjuring of Light sitting right next to each other right where I always sit? Real smart Iris.

    1. Hahahaha, I would never put spoilers in a post like that! Wouldn’t want to ruin the reading experience for anyone! 🙂

      But I’m so happy to hear that you loved Leah and the Shades Of Magic trilogy so much! I had the exact same thought process when I started the trilogy last year because as you said, it’s SO GOOD.
