So I read a nice number of books this month! I also discovered a new favourite series! Let's get into this wrap up.
BOOKS I READ:
- The Dark Days Pact by Alison Goodman. LET ME SHRIEK ABOUT HOW GOOD THIS BOOK WAS. So I really liked the first book, but I was unsure of how and where it was going. The Dark Days Pact vanquished those feelings. It was wonderfully dark and stabby. 5/5 stars.
- The Young Elites by Marie Lu. BE STILL MY BEATING HEART. I finally read The Young Elites. It was SO dark and stabby. Clearly there I have a penchant for dark, stabby books. 4/5 stars.
- A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkensass. What's this? An adult fantasy? YUP! And this book, my friends, is part of a new favourite series. It's called the All Souls trilogy, and it's paranormal. It's got witches, vampires and daemons. It's got huge libraries, and the main character is a historian who reads lots of old manuscripts and books. Basically I love it. 5/5 stars
-Optimists Die First by Susin Nielson. Sadly me and this book do not like eachother very much. I didn't like it's representation of anxiety, nor the cliché trope-ish romance. However, it was very quick and easy to read, and I did like the side characters a lot. I did a review for it HERE.
BOOKS I BOUGHT:
NONE! Because I'm saving my money. This is extremely hard, as there are so many books I want to buy.
-The 13 Reasons Why Netflix show premiered, and everyone so far is adoring it.
- Fall Out Boy confused all their fans recently by uploading an old video of them playing Sugar We're Going Down Swinging live from like, 2005. What does this mean?! A NEW ALBUM?? ARE THEY GOING BACK TO THEIR OLD PUNK/EMO ROOTS?? I NEED TO KNOW.
-Danisnotonfire released two videos in the space of two months. What have we done to deserve this. Also, did a robot replace him? (fyi the videos were hilarious and great)
- On the DanandPhilGAMES channel, they played a RPG game that Phil made when he was 14, and it was a work of art. Honestly. It had an amazing(phil) plot, insane plot twists, well developed characters and tbh I would totally fund a remake/sequel with original music and art this time.
- Frank Iero released a new song and it's great.
- The new DanandPhilCRAFTS video was highly entertaining and then suddenly very disturbing. #softandneat
So this category was originally named Music Recommendations, but I though calling it *name of month* Playlist would be cooler. And here's what I've been listening too. I highly recommend you check these songs out on Spotify.
- Mirrors by PVRIS. I love PVRIS, they are such a great band, and Mirrors is an amazing, haunting song.
- Some Say by Sum 41. I can't believe it's taken me this long to get into Sum 41. I kept putting off listening to them. BUT I've listened to all their albums and I now consider myself a fan.
- Little Ways by Moonlit Kit. I found this band because the key boardist is the key boardist for Lindsey Stirling, and she was promoting their first song, Little Ways. It's a great song, and honestly I'm really excited to hear more from this band.
- What's It Feel Like To Be A Ghost by Taking by Sunday. I love Taking Back Sunday, and this song is such a jam. I love it.
- Dirty Laundry by All Time Low. Okay, I didn't like this song at first. It was really different from their other stuff. But I gave it another chance, and now I'm obsessed.
- Last Young Renegade by All Time Low. ANOTHER ATL SONG. Honestly this song was a lot more like their older stuff, and I really love it. I'm so excited for the album.
- Loud (Fuck it) by Motionless In White. THIS SONG IS MY ANTHEM.
- Outlaws by Green Day. Amazing song.
- Getting Into Heaven Can Be Hell by frnkiero. GAH A NEW SONG IM SO EXCITED I LOVE IT. ALSO HE'S RELEASING A NEW EP SOON CALLED 'KEEP THE COFFINS COMING' AND I LITERALLY CANNOT. EVEN.
- Liability by Lorde. I relate so much to this song and also I'm so excited for her new album.
AND THAT WAS MY MARCH WRAP UP! Have you listened to any good songs/albums this March? Any good books?? Anything exciting happening in your fandoms?? Tell me down below!
