Spotlight Saturday #7 | Weekly Feature

Spotlight Saturday #7

Hello bookworms and welcome back! Before you ask, yes I know it’s Sunday (I can’t believe I let this happen again, woops), but sometimes life beckons you to answer it’s call and you just gotta oblige. So my Saturday was a wave of busyness, from work, to eighteenth birthday parties, and staying up late until 2am… BUT, I AM MAKING UP FOR IT TODAY. YAY.

Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner [aka, moi], 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.

This week was a fabulous week in all aspects, so I am very excited to get into this week’s Spotlight Saturday! 


Slide1

So there’s this lovely lady, that goes by the name of Jenna, and hosts a crazy awesome blog called Reading With Jenna. I want to spotlight her today, because she has become an increasingly wonderful and appreciated presence on my reader and also on my blog posts.

Jenna writes awesome book reviews and she is always never shy to send a comment your way! Her blog posts never fail to keep me engaged and entertained.

So please go check out Jenna’s blog by clicking her blog name above! She is amazing and you will not regret it. She will add a beautiful rainbow to your blogosphere.

I have two fantastic blog posts to share with you today. Because let’s face it – we can’t just pick one. Especially now that I follow so many amazing blogs, I cannot just pick one spotlighted post, however, I managed to control myself to two! 

The first comes from the one and only Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts where he announced his blogging team for the #BBCreativityProjectClick here to go to the blog post I’m talking about! With witty and smart reference to Harry Potter, Joey has given a simple Team introduction a boost of fun with the addition of some pretty sick graphics! 

The next comes from Cait @ Paper Fury! Honestly, can you tell I’m obsessed with this girl? Her blog is always entertaining me and blowing me away! But I digress. This week she released a blog post where she discussed ways to be kind to book bloggers. With the use of amazing graphics (like seriously, those arrow graphics are to DIE for) and adequate GIFs and AMAZING ADVICE, Cait doesn’t fail to disappoint! Click here to go to the blog post I’m talking about! Wooooo!


Slide3

I started reading Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare this week, and goodness YES! I am love love loving it! I’m almost halfway through, and Will Herondale fans I totally understand the appeal of Will now. I’m falling for him, HARD. But then there’s also Jem who is such a precious little gem (see what I did there?)


Slide4

This week was a week of positive moments, so I suppose I will put this into list form to make it easier to read.

  • Exams ended this week and thank goodness they did. It’s honestly the best. Now I can finally blog and read without feeling guilty (but then again, I still have my finals to go in about three weeks, but lets not think of that right now *wink*.
  • I passed all my exams with flying colours!
  • I started Clockwork Prince and I am loving it immensely.
  • Graduation is coming up and I’m so excited. Outfit? Check. Valedictory speech? I’ll get to it soon… *sweats*

Slide5

Unfortunately, I’m boring and I haven’t experimented with any new apps lately. Oopsie. 


Slide6

Style by Taylor Swift. I’ve been a huge fan of Taylor Swift ever since I first started listening to music – back when she was much more country than she was pop. But I must say, while I loved her old style of music so much and when I hear those old songs I’m hit with a case of nostalgia, I ADORE T-Swizzle’s new songs. Style especially. Like, can we talk about the beat at the very beginning? YAS. And I can’t help but add the music video for this song and the inclusion of our favourite actor for Jace in the new Shadowhunter TV show *wink*.

You’re allowed to scream,
You’re allowed to cry,
but do not give up.

  1. Oh oh congrats on your exam success!! WOOOOOT!! DOES THIS MEAN CAKE?

  2. First of all, congratulations on finishing your exams and passing all of them. I love Taylor Swift too! Style was really an amazing video with great effects and background beats. I like her newest track titled Wildest dreams and it looks like she’s getting better with every new track. Great Post BTW! 😀

  3. Valedictorian, wow! 😀 Congratulations! Now, let me go complete fangirl mode that you’re reading ClockworkPrinceohmygodWillWillWillandohJemJemJem.

    *sigh* I’ll never be able to choose between the two of them, you know.

    P.S. I’m gonna head over and check out those two spotlighted posts now 😉

      • I knoooww!!! Every time I feel like I’ve finally made up my mind that I love Will more, Jem decides to peak in with his never-ending love and sweetness and kindness and then I’m confused again. :/ I swear, these two boys will be the end of me. 😛
        For the most part, though, I believe myself to be a Wessa shipper. Will and Tessa just… match too well. ❤

        Oh, I did! Joey's post was, like, bursting with creative awesomeness (but it's Joey's post, so that's nothing unusual) but I actually discovered Cait's blog for the first time. Her post was so beautiful! ❤

  4. Oh, you’re graduating valedictorian?! Isn’t that the highest level of graduation, as in you have been the top student in all of your high school!! CONGRATULATIONS that is a big achievement. Meaning, if you graduate as valedictorian you’ll get into a great college and then a top job 🙂 I’m so happy for you, Josie. You completely deserve it. ❤ ❤

      • Your parents must be so proud!! Hey, Josie, if you wouldn’t mind too much, would you call me sometime ten years into the future when you’re a billionaire and one of the top 100 successful woman in the world? I hope we’ll still be friends, or maybe you’ll be too cool and popular to be my friend. 😀 😀 LOTS OF LOVE

      • Honestly, my parents don’t care about my achievements that much. Oh OF COURSE. You’ll be the first person I’ll call/message! 😉
        Of course we will still be friends, you’re too awesome for me to forget you.
        xoxo

    And yay I'm so happy that you love Clockwork Prince and Will! 😀 Will and Jem are just so precious. I just want to hug them (and marry them).

  6. Once again, I can only say that I loved your picks of the week! Cait’s post about kindness to bloggers was amazing and I am so happy that you passed all your tests 😀 I knew you could do it!!!
    I think I watched Style soooo many times, also Wildest Dreams (mostly because of Scott Eastwood). Taylor’s music is just so addictive.

    • Aw, you’re sweet! Thank you! 🙂 Yes, I love that Cait did that post.
      I’m so happy I passed them all, thank you.
      It really is addictive, isn’t it?! I’m always so captivated by the music videos for Style and Wildest Dreams!
