March 2017 – Book Reviews

 

Hey guys! Happy Saturday! We finally get to sleep in after a long, hard week of studying or working. So while I get to stay at home and rest and read or whatever, I came up with my two all-time favourite books. Hope you enjoy! ❤ WARNING: SPOILERS!

1. All the Bright Places – Jennifer Niven

This is without a doubt one of my all-time favourite books. It evolves around a boy who wants to commit suicide (Finch) but falls in love with a girl (Violet Markey), who’s sister recently died in a tragic car crash and is now in depression. This book offers various different types of characters but makes you fall in love with Violet and Finch. This read went from several heart-throb to ultimate heart breaks and it sure was a long, emotional rollercoaster that had many ups and downs. Would definitely recommend to people who is in need for a good old cry, so be sure to have plenty of tissues beside you! It makes me so excited to read her next book ‘Holding Up the Universe’.

2. Girl Online: On Tour – Zoe Sugg

This book is part of the trilogy of ‘Girl Online’ by Zoe Sugg, but out of all three this one is my favourite, which is why I picked it specially for this ‘Book Review’. If you haven’t read any of the books from this series, then where have you been? They are all equally amazing and have multiple emotional scenes, which features Penny Porter and her rock star boyfriend, Noah Flynn. One of the reasons why I love this book is because it shows the story of a normal girl who started a chatty blog, and it soon turns viral. It taught me that anyone, yes anyone, in this world could show off their creative side and not care for any of the hate or judgement. It really inspired me to start this blog that I have today! 🙂

I hope you guys enjoyed this very short blog post about my two favourite books. Please like this post if you guys love these books as much as I do (if you’re a bit of a bookworm like me 🙂 ), and follow for more posts every Saturday and Wednesday. Bye ❤

March 2017 – Song Favourites

Here is just a couple of my favourite songs because if I named them all, I’d be here ’til Christmas! Some of these songs are very emotional and spirit-lifting, and I’ll try give some of the meanings to the songs, and why I love them so much. 🙂

1. Galway Girl – Ed Sheeran

Now, who can get away with a song favourites list without adding in the talented Ed Sheeran!? I absolutely love every single song on his new album ‘Divide’! I mean, who doesn’t? One reason why I love this song is because it reminds me of Ireland, which I was born in. And it is such a catchy and jumpy song which makes it twice as good. It is a very Irish-inspired song about a ‘Galway Girl’ falling in love with an English man. Do I need to explain more? 🙂

2. Perfect – Ed Sheeran

I don’t know why but this song makes me feel very emotional, maybe because I’m a very empathetic person? But every time I try to sing this song tears gather up in my eyes. (Probably because I’m a terrible singer). This song is basically about him singing to his lover and talking about his ‘future life’ with her. I would DEFINITELY love to have it played at my wedding (if I even get married!), which is why it is on top of my list of favourite songs.

3. What Do I Know – Ed Sheeran

Yes, of course there’s another one of Ed’s songs here! I think this song is about people getting on with their lives with huge jobs like accountants and business-type lifestyles, and he is just on a stage with a guitar singing songs. I’m not quite sure what the meaning of the song is, but whatever it is, it sure is an amazing/catchy song.

4. No Lie – Sean Paul Ft. Dua Lipa 

This song is so good!! I don’t know what it is, but something about this song makes me want to listen it on replay 24/7. It has a mix of pop and rap throughout the song, but I’m not 100% sure what the meaning of the song is. I would recommend listening to this whilst dancing or exercising.

5. Scared To Be Lonely – Martin Garrix Ft. Dua Lipa

This is one of the songs that makes me a bit teary-eyed. Yet again, it is still very catchy but I love it so much! The meaning of the song is two lovers are fighting but keep coming back to each other for love. I would definitely give this a listen if you are feeling a bit emotional, but if you’re not, I’d still listen to it anyway  if I were you!

6. Run Up – Major Lazer Ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR & Nicki Minaj

The first few times I heard this song, I hated it! But the more I listened to it, the more it grew on me and I now love it so much. This song, for some reason, makes me super happy and energetic. I love it so much!! I’m not quite sure what the meaning is, but it’s still great and you should without a doubt listen to it. I would describe this song as a slow club song.

7. I Would Like – Zara Larsson

I really love this song so much and I’m most likely found listening to this song on replay. It is a really fast and energetic song. I would for sure listen to this while working out or even simply putting on my makeup!

I hope you enjoyed my short list of favourite songs this month! I do of course have plenty more but I’d be here forever listing them out! Name your favourite song or any song recommendations in the comments below . Like this post if you want more things like this and follow! 🙂
