Today is my first ever Friday Flashback, a post where I will essentially just re-hash the events of my week, bookish and otherwise. I hope you enjoy!
I finished reading The Host by Stephanie Meyer, and I also watched the movie! From there, I went on to read The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. It was my first Sarah Dessen book, and honestly, I fell in love. After that, I started Clockwork Angel, which I am still reading! (more specifically, am reading while I write this post. most likely I will have finished the book by the time this has posted!)
I also got a few books this week too! I picked up Keep Sweet by Michele Dominguez Greene, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, Looking for Alaska by John Green, This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith, Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham, and The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. I also received a copy of Angelfall by Susan Ee, courtesy of Octavia from Read Sleep Repeat! Thanks Octavia! Lastly, I was approved by NetGalley for Dare You To by Katie McGarry!
On Friday I interviewed for a job at Indigo, which is a Canadian bookstore chain. They have everything in there, including a large music section, and loads of cute notebooks and knick-knacks! I have a good feeling about how the interview went, but I’m trying not to get my hopes up too much. I found out today (Friday) whether I got the job or not, so keep your fingers crossed for me!
Last Friday I also went to the movies with two of my friends and we saw The Big Wedding. It thought it was a pretty good movie myself, and the end of it had a very Crazy Stupid Love feel to it. Which is good, because that is one of my favourite movies! It was a very funny chick flick with the perfect amount of drama, and it had Amanda Seyfried in it who is one of my favourite actresses. Not to mention the movie also starred Topher Grace and Ben Barnes, two unbelievably gorgeous guys ;) That only made it better!
On Tuesday, I was lucky enough to score tickets to see The Lumineers at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton! This concert was faaaaaantastic! The Lumineers are an acoustic folk band, and if you don’t know them you NEED to look them up! One of their singles is Ho Hey, and I know it’s a pretty popular one, so YOUTUBE IT! Anyways, this band sounds exactly like their recordings, and just were oh so good!!!
This week I listened to a lot of the Lumineers leading up to the concert. Here are some of my faves of theirs!
I also rediscovered by love of Mumford and Sons song After the Storm. I love this song, and one specific line I LOVE is “With grace in your heart, and flowers in your hair.”
This is the section of the post where I share the best things I found on the internet this week!
