At the Moment #2

Hi guys! How are you? It’s been a while since my first At the Moment post and I’m so excited to do another one, cause I have some really exciting things I really love to shout about. So, let’s shout?

…I’m reading: The Book of M by Peng Shepherd.

Y’all know how I feel about dystopians (#rubble), but after reading Kathy’s beautiful review, I just had to read this one and so far it’s exceeded all my expectations. It’s got the most exquisite world-building and one of the most unique premises I’ve seen: people are losing their shadows, and when they lose their shadow, they lose their memories as well. That’s where things get curiouser. Cause when a shadowless person forgets, the world forgets with them. Creating a strange, terrifying, yet achingly beautiful world where deer may sprout wings instead of antlers and a wolf might warn a person not to ask a sparrow for directions (they always lie).

…I’m watching: The Bold Type

If you haven’t seen The Bold Type, it’s a comedy-drama about three girls who all work at a fashion magazine in New York. It’s fun, lighthearted, feel-good feminism, but it’s also smarter, more diverse and subversive than you might expect. One of my favorite things about it is how genuine, supportive and warm the friendship between the three leading ladies is. it’s rare to see female friendship cast in such a positive light and it’s honestly so uplifting and heart-warming to watch, like having a heart to heart with your own best friends.

…I’m listening to: GRANT

I’ve fallen head over heels for Swedish singer GRANT. Her music is dramatic, soulfull and poetic, the kind that grabs you by the heart and doesn’t let go. Her debut In Bloom dropped in June and it’s such an interesting LP, because each track has a very individual sound. My personal favorites are: Wicked, a breakup song so gleefully vindictive and full of intent I’m half convinced GRANT’s casting a curse on her ex; Body Electric, the feminist masturbation anthem I didn’t know I needed in my life and Waterline, a sublimely triumphant song about choosing life over suicide, despite the bad days.

So now that I’m done shouting at you, shout back! What’s your current read? Do you like it? How do you feel about dystopians? What’s your favorite song or your favorite show right now? Tell me what your excited about, so I can get excited too!

  1. Great post! The Book of M sounds brilliant! It’s on my TBR but I’m even more intrigued now after seeing it mentioned in your post. I’m currently reading Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo (the second book in The Grisha trilogy), and absolutely loving it! I’ve not heard of The Bold Type before now but it sounds excellent, I may check it out as I’m not currently watching any shows (I’ve caught up with all the ones I have been watching!)

    1. Thank you! The Book of M is wonderful, I can’t recommend it enough. I hope you love it as much as I do 😊 Siege and Storm is so good! I just reread Shadow and Bone and I’m really excited to reread that one next. I hope you give The Bold Type a try, it’s such a fun show. I just finished season 2, so I need new shows to watch rn too.

  3. I’m going to have to check out that book! I also have been watching The Bold Type. It’s good but sometimes Jane can drive me nuts with her overreactions! lol. I’m currently reading, The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima (lots of people recommended it). I am watching Netflix movie releases this week! I watched, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and it was really good. I really like Lily James though. I’m going to see Crazy Rich Asians today and on Friday, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before will be on Netflix!

    1. I really hope you do, it’s a wonderful read (maaaybe my favorite book of the year so far) Yay, a fellow Bold Type Fan! Jane’s been driving me a little nuts in season 2 too, the girl has a lot of feelings about a lot of things. I really want to watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, so I’m happy to hear it’s a good one! Like a typical bookworm, I gotta read the book first though… I’m SO excited to watch To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, the book is the cutest and trailer looks amazing 😊

      1. Wow!! Your favorite of the year?! Awesome. I just added it to my TBR list. 🙂

        Yeah, she is so opinionated this season and it’s driving me nuts. I hope she’s more chill when it comes back!

        I didn’t read the book first. Oops! haha. So, I look forward to what you think of the book!

        I did read the book for To All the Boys..! You are right, the trailer looks soo good and I can’t wait! I’m really hoping Netflix doesn’t let me down though. haha!

      2. Definitely top 3, haha! I hope you love it! 😊

        I usually put off the movie, ’till I’ve read the book….then I forget to watch the movie. So I’m very glad I’ve already read To All the Boys. I’m so ready for it!

      3. Yeah, I always find it easier when I’ve already read the book, so I’m prepared! haha. I just watched TATBILB this morning and I really enjoyed it!!! 🙂

  4. Oh, I didn’t know that that was the premise of The Book of M! That sounds really interesting, even though I’m also not a huge fan of dystopian. I’m currently reading The Upside of Unrequited, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

    1. Thank you so much! I think it’s on Freeform in the US. I watched it on a Norwegian channel. Positive female friendships are the best, I get so excited whenever I see one on a show or in a book! The Bold Type is really great at showing women supporting women 😊 I hope you enjoy it!

    1. It’s definitley one of my favorite books of the year – I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! I love both of those books, I just reread the whole DoSaB trilogy on audio and it was so fun! Happy reading 💕

    1. It’s one of my favorite reads of the year so far! The UK hardback is so lovely, even the spine is stunning 😍 I’m so glad you think so, I haven’t been this excited about a new artist in a long time! Oh wow, her voice is absolutely beautiful, I could listen to her all day. Thank you for sharing! 💕

  6. I haven’t heard too much about the Book of M, but the premise sounds really intriguing 😱 I still like Dystopians, especially if they are so unique!
    I’m currently obsessed with Dirk Gentley’s (which is on Netflix), it’s such a good show and the characters are all amazing 😍💕 I’m highkey crying, because the show got cancelled 😭

    1. Isn’t it the coolest premise? It’s the most unique dystopian I’ve ever read!
      I haven’t heard of that, but I’ll definitley check it out! Characters are everything 💕 Oh nooo, that’s the worst. Cancelling good tv should be forbidden!
