Spotlight Saturday #1

Posted October 17, 2015 in Books / Leave a comment!

Ok so because I feel like I need more fun things on my blog I thought I’d give Spotlight Saturday a try. For those who don’t know what that is:

Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner, dedicated to spotlighting and pinpointing some of the things over the week that have caught my attention more than usual, things I’ve particularly loved, etc.

Also because Josie is fantastic and this is like a mini shoutout to her. Seriously though, go check her out!

Since Monday was a holiday this was a four day work week for me. That was great and all but I feel like they’re so much worse than 5 day weeks because I’m always way more tired from messing up my schedule. Maybe that’s just me though. Thoughts?

Since I found this lovely feature on Josie’s blog I’m going to feature her first! This is only one of many fun things I’ve found on her blog! She has really cute graphics all over the place and her blog scheme is so colourful and fun! Also I’ve been seeing a lot of cool discussion posts over there lately which really get me thinking. Bonus: she does lots of book tags that I tag her in and I love seeing other peoples answers!

I hope you guys all check her out because she’s fantastic! She also makes a great Twitter friend! See her on Twitter here. Thanks Josie for being so awesome!

I think for this one I’m going to go with Aentee’s @ Read at Midnight. She posted a discussion post all about how blogging changed her reading habits. You don’t realize until you’re reading something like this just how much your reading habits have changed. Sure I read a lot before blogging but now I read so much more because I’m following tons of other bloggers who write such awesome reviews that I just can’t help but pick up more books.

a monster calls

I’m going to pick A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I had heard great things about this book but they don’t really live up to the amount of feels that you feel in this book. It’s a little dark and creepy while being sad and horrible all at the same time. Any book that can make you feel that much deserves a shoutout. Also the illustrations are incredible! Seriously check out this book!!!

This is probably going to be the hardest topic every week for this feature. I honestly don’t really do a lot. No seriously. I go to work and then come home and make supper and then either read or clean. It depends on it I found a good book or not.

If I had to pick though I’d have to say Thanksgiving. Up here in Canada we have it a little earlier than the States. I actually didn’t have any turkey but the two meals I had were much better. It was a little unfortunate that we had 2 meals in one day thought because we were stuffed! It was worth it though! This would be mine and my boyfriends first Thanksgiving together and it was hilarious to see the differences between his family and mine. During my family dinner there was a lot of hockey talk, being the perfect Canadians we are, and during his we mostly made fun of his brothers beard. Quite the difference I promise.

spotlighted-app

Sarah @ The Reading Petal recently introduced me to the Overdrive app. All I can say is why haven’t I used this before!?!?! All you need is a library card and you can sign in and borrow books. Like an online ebook library. Unfortunately we both share the same library and don’t get many new releases on there but it’s great for checking out those older books on my TBR. I’d highly recommend it!

spotlighted-song

Oh my gosh. What to pick?! Ok please don’t judge me for this. I’m going with Drag Me Down by One Direction. I’ve been a One Direction fan since they started out on X Factor. I think they’re actually really talented and I’m upset that they get a lot of hate. To be honest though they do have some really crazy 13 year old fans. Their parents should really be concerned. Anyway, I was a little disappointed with their last two albums and I’m excited for their newest one because I’m liking the songs so far.

I love it when the title of the book ends up in a quote somewhere. It makes you go “That’s why this is called that” ! Haha!

  1. Oh my gosh! I love this feature! I might start doing this next week. Yay! I’m so happy that the OverDrive app is working out for you! It is great for all the older series that you don’t really want to spend money on to read. Who doesn’t love saving money. 😉

    • I even found a newish one! Haha it came out in 2015 anyway! And his feature is awesome. It’s nice thinking back on your week and highlighting other bloggers 🙂
