Random Favourites: A Book, Podcast and Two Albums

Friday, May 26, 2017

This post is kind of a mish-mash of things I have been loving lately. Separately, each topic wasn't quite enough for a whole post - but together it works! 

Book:Everything Everything is marketed as young adult novel - but I still loved it! If the name sounds familiar to you - that's because there is currently a movie out based on the novel. Amandla Stenberg (aka Rue from The Hunger Games) plays the main character, Maddy. Without spoiling anything, Maddy has a rare disease which keeps her from leaving her house. To pass the time spent isolated, she enjoys observing her neighbours.  When a new family moves in next door, her life completely changes! It's a quick read but a good one nonetheless. If you plan on watching the movie - don't read the book first because there will be major spoilers!

Podcast:If you love anything Harry Potter, you will for sure love Harry Potter and the Sacred Text. One thing I enjoy about Harry Potter is how you're able to pick up on something new each time you read the books. The hosts read through a chapter of each book per episode, and analyze it through a specific theme. I've read the Harry Potter series a few times now and even I was pleasantly surprised learning new information I missed and thinking about the text in a different way. I love listening to this podcast in the car and shower.

Albums:Paramore: After Laughter and Harry Styles: Harry Styles were both released on the same day and I totally felt like I was in high school again. 

I am a huge Paramore fan and the new album is both angsty and fun. I love the tracks Rose Coloured Boy and 26! Harry Styles is another huge favourite of mine right now. I was really looking forward to hearing his sound outside of One Direction and he really did not disappoint, I absolutely love the track Woman and also Kiwi. I hope he plays them when I go to see him live in October (!!!!!!). 

What are you enjoying right now?
