Happy Friday, TGIF everyone! I am going to start a new series on my blog, Five Things Friday. I saw weekly recaps going around on blogs recently and I wanted to join in. I spotted Sydney’s Shelves doing Five Things Friday last Friday and it looks perfect! I love Sydney and her blog so go follow her if you haven’t!
Here is my first Five Things Friday! I’m just recapping five things that happened this week! Feel free to tell me something in the comments about your week!
1. GirlBoss on Netflix
After watching 13 Reasons Why, I didn’t have any other Netflix shows to watch. I logged on sometime this week and I found Girlboss, if you’ve heard of the book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, this is the TV version of the book. I really want to pick up the book now that I’ve been watching the show. IT’S SO GOOD I’M ADDICTED. If you’ve read the book let me know if it’s worth reading!
2. Spring weather is finally here???
It might be too good to be true but the past few days have been in the high 70 and 80 degrees fahrenheit. Saturday alone is going to be 87 degrees!! Spring is my favorite season and I’m glad it finally feels like it. However, it feels more like summer haha! Also, I’m technically on “summer break” now because I finished all my exams however grades aren’t final/official until May 10th.
3. NEW FALL OUT BOY MUSIC & A TOUR??
Fall Out Boy, one of my favorite bands I grew up with came out with a new song and released a date for a new album plus tour dates just yesterday. The song is titled Young and Menace. The song has a techno/EDM kind of vibe sort of like when they came back from their hiatus and put out Light Em’ Up, it’s a different FOB vibe than I’m used to. I have mixed feelings, I will always love Fall out Boy dearly but I miss the Infinity on High type of music! I preordered the CD so fast and I bought a tank top NO SHAME.
4. Okay.. All Time Low just released a new song TWO HOURS AGO.
Another one of my favorite bands, All Time Low has been releasing songs in anticipation for their upcoming album, Last Young Renegade. I really like their new sound now that they are with the label, Fueled by Ramen. So many songs are getting released, my fangirl self cannot handle it!!!
5. My Recent Kindle Purchases
I’ve been participating in #DiversityBingo2017, a diverse bingo board created on Twitter by a group of book bloggers. I haven’t officially announced besides my posts about it on Twitter. I’ve been looking at new Contemporary books to read for the board and I found three that I really want to read so I purchased them, they were all low prices. So, if you want them go grab them! Click here for the board and more information. I’ll be posting about my progress & want to read list, soon!
Here are the books I purchased and what spot they fit. The titles are linked with the Amazon link.
- Coffee Boy by Austin Chant: non-binary mc (own voices) [add to goodreads]
- The Unforgettables by G.L. Tomas: mc with an invisible disability – I already have a book that filled this spot but nonetheless I still want to read it! [add to goodreads]
- Sofia Khan is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik: hijabi mc [add to goodreads]
Those are my five favorite things from the week! This was fun and I will continue next Friday! One of my resolutions was to be more positive and I think this will really help.
I’ll be participating in Dewey’s 24-Hour readathon this weekend, so I’m excited to have a reading filled weekend!
What was your favorite from the week?
