I started this post about 8 times now…Wrap up posts are so boring… especially when you’re like me & have only read 3 books this month. I mean if you follow me on social media you can see what I’m reading. I need to get better are writing reviews… They’re my least favorite thing to write about…(If you have any tips or ideas on things I could do on the blog..please share them with me in the comments!)
With that said…I’m going to mix it up a bit and turn these Wrap Ups into kind of Monthly Favorites. There’s a lot you guys do not know about me and I don’t like that. I want us to have a sort of relationship and we cant do that if we don’t know each other! On that note.. here’s whats been going on in September.
Cassandra Clare released the full story of #Jessa and OMG IT WAS MAGICAL! SO FUCKING GORGEOUS I CANNOT EVEN.
If you haven’t read After the Bridge it does kind of contain spoilers for both Internal Devices and The Mortal Instruments so read both of those first then you can read it HERE
Since I am back at school… I have been doing a crap load of Non Fiction reading and that comes with a shit ton of homework. I am the kind of person that NEEDS music when writing or doing homework so it is a MUST or else I get completely distracted… I’ve been obsessed with Spotify Mood Playlists…
So I downloaded the Spotify app on my phone. Its completely free btw… You just go to browse and there is a ton of Lists like Mood, Party, Pop, Workout, Focus, Sleep, Chill, Club… etc.. you get the idea.. My favorite is Mood.. so I click on that and it has a ton of Playlists depending on your mood. Its brilliant… Your Favorite Coffee House is my favorite because I usually go to coffee bean to study and they have the perfect music to study to. So When I am at home studying I like to have that setting. Its brilliant trust me!
First book Finished this month was Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead.
This book took me FOREVER to finish!!! I’m not sure why.. because the story is actually quite interesting.
Last Minute Beach Trip is always a good Idea!
I took a trip to the beach with my sister & nephews after I got out of work. We made it just in time to catch the sunset! It was truly spectacular and so inspirational! I hardly ever go to the beach which is mind boggling because I live only 20 minutes from it! Its one of my favorite places ever! Its good to just take some time to get away for a while, take your mind off things and just appreciate life. We didn’t plan on getting in the water but.. it is the beach after all so why not have a little dip.
Friends are pretty awesome to have. But like.. REALLY great friends.. not acquaintances not people who are “friends” with you on FB but the people you talk to about your life..the people you share the good the bad the struggles the successes… The people you complain to and they don’t judge you… those are friends.. I am lucky to have a handful of FRIENDS. & I am really grateful to have 3 of these Friends be Fangirls! They truly understand why I spend my time reading books till 4 am and why fictional characters mean so much to me… they understand why I sleep on the sidewalks overnight for an event…in fact… they join me. Some people think its weird that were all different ages but when were together it doesnt feel like it…we pretty much have the same mindset and we learn from each other and thats all that matters. We spent a few days together just being silly, going to Disneyland and comforting each other and It was really beautiful. Never take your friends for granted.
I came home one day and there was a package at my door…Turns out I won an Arc of 100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith. I DIED! I received an E-Arc earlier this year & I must say it was brilliant.. Andrew Smith has become one of my favorite Authors and I will never not read his books. Also.. His covers are my favorite!
Fun Fact: I AM A YOUTUBE JUNKIE!
Its true guys… I have a little problem with youtube… But more recently I’ve been obsessed with Fun For Louis. I’ve been following him for a while now but this past month I noticed I look forward to watching his vlogs everyday. He does daily vlogs about his life, his adventures.. its so inspiring. I really connect with his videos because he shares some of the same passions as me. I love Traveling & Photography… about 3 years ago my camera was stolen…it took me a while to save up for that camera.. it was pretty fancy. Since then I have been really discouraged and distanced myself from that whole community. But watching Louis videos and seeing his photos on Instagram have helped re spark my passion for photography and really inspire me to travel again.I use to travel every winter & summer break when I was younger. I love culture. All types of cultures.. I am quite curious and I would really like to get back out there and experience life. Pee.s Louis is quite gorgeous…I’ll admit I appreciate his looks.
The Maze Runner came out this month and I got to see with my Parabatai for the lovely price of $5 YAAAS! I love my Theater! Every Tuesday & Thursday is $5 Movie day. I must say I enjoyed the movie WAAAAAY More than I did the book. I give the book like a 3 of 5 stars and the movie was easily a 5 star. LOVED IT!
I finished reading Last Sacrifice which means I have read the whole Vampire Academy series and I have moved on to Bloodlines. As a whole I give VA a solid 3 stars… which means I enjoyed it but I didn’t love it. I started Bloodlines and already I love it WAY more than VA. I found Silver Shadows for $10 at my local used book store and I died. I HAD to get it… it was the only book missing out of the series and now I have it… Once I’m done reading Non Fiction I will be diving into this series.
Remember when I said that I love Andrew Smiths Book Covers… Check this one out… I cannot even begin to explain my excitement for this book.
I picked up The Key to The Golden FireBird by Maureen Johnson. Fun Fact: 13 Little Blue Envelopes/Last Little Blue Envelope is my favorite book duology, if not my favorite book ever. I felt comfort diving into one of Maureen Johnsons contemporaries. Her Humor is my favorite thing ever. I loved the main character I loved the story, I loved the sister bonding, I love that baseball was apart of the story.. It really felt like this story was something that actually happened when I was younger. I Loved it.
I received this lovely book in the mail… ISN’T THE COVER SO GORGEOUS? I will be taking part in the AfterParty Blog Tour… So far I am enjoying the book. I cannot wait to tell you about all the things when I am done.. also.. I’m pretty sure there will be a giveaway happening.. ;)
If you have not read the Selection series… please scroll pass this.. because this does contain spoilers…. I’ve warned you.
The other day I received a text from my parabatai… Yea… she said… have you checked out SelectionSeries SnapChat?? uhhh WTF they have a snap chat?? so I go on SC and I see this…. Here is my reaction..
THEY HAVE TWINS!!! WTF!!! THE HEIR IS PLURAL!!! Now.. let me tell you about my love for this series….
Me after the first book.
Then the second.

I may have had a few panic attacks while reading this trilogy.. and I fucking love it!
My favorite band is going on tour….. & I AM GOING TO SEE THEM!!!!! My ticket arrived an I am beyond ecstatic. YAAAAS! Its been about 2 years since I’ve seen Circa Survive and I’ve been having withdraws… TWO MONTHS!!!
Cassandra won Knotts Scary Farm Tickets… So we went.. & well… this happened… It was beautiful… It wasn’t Scary just… very very weird.. but a lot of fun!
Emma Watson Gave a speech about gender equality… you can watch that HERE
Its basically everything I believe in… then yesterday I read this article…the author… a 15 year old boy and I am speechless… HES 15! Read it HERE
Lastly… I recently bought two major kitchen appliances… a juicer & a Food Processor… I recently went back to being full vegan… I was vegan for about 5 months but the last two months or so I went vegetarian and I just didn’t feel good about myself. I started breaking out again, my skin felt really dry, my energy was crap… so I went back to vegan and these past 2 weeks I’ve been cleaning out my system..juicing and eating a crap load of fruits and veggies.. Its my new favorite thing. I feel so much better already. I’m focused, energized and my body just feels amazing.
Two of my favorite shows have come back to TV & I couldn’t be more happy. Greys Anatomy and Revenge had great first episodes… I cannot wait for the story to unfold.. SO MUCH DRAMA!!! Also.. beautiful men.. Beautiful Men..
But really… My month has mostly looked like this…
