Hi guys! How are you? Today I thought I’d try little something different. Instead of just raving about books (which are obviously my first love forever) I want to talk about some other stuff I’ve loving as well. I stole this idea from the lovely Lauren from Lauren and the Books who’s been doing monthly videos like this for a while. This might turn into a regular thing, if I actually have anything other than books to talk about (which is less likely than you’d think)
…I’m reading: Bruja Born by Zoraida Córdova
Labyrinth Lost was one of my favorite reads in 2017, so of course Bruja Born was one of my most anticipated 2018 releases. It’s told from the POV of Alex’s older sister Lula, who I adored in Labyrinth Lost. I’m only a few chapters in and Lula’s story already has a darker, more emotional feel. I never cry at books and this one got me in the first chapter.
What fresh sorcery is this???
…I’m watching: Old-school rom-coms
At the start of the month I watched Set It Up on Netflix and it made me super nostalgic for the old school rom-coms I grew up watching. So I made my mom watch a bunch with me. We watched When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and Four Weddings and a Funeral, which were all new to me, and Notting Hill, which isn’t. I’ve probably seen it 20 times, but I never get bored with it. It has everything a girl could want in a rom-com: floppy-haired Hugh Grant, a Welshman casually wearing scuba gear, a pretty pathetic car chase and of course, a swoony romance. The reader of Horse & Hound are delighted.
…I’m listening to: Here We Are Again by CAGGIE
Earlier this month Caggie Dunlop finally released her first single and I love it. It’s a really fun and summery, yet nostalgic pop song about bumping into an ex and realizing all those feelings are still there.
