Books 

With the news that The Baby-Sitter’s Club series is coming for a ten episode series on Netflix, I felt like rereading one of the books and I remembered how much I adored the Super Specials when I was younger. I bought Baby-Sitters on Board on my Kindle and I truly enjoyed it. I’m definitely going to write a review but I was honestly super surprised at how well its held up over the years.

I also read Laura Sebastian’s novel, Ash Princess. I’d heard from a friend that she hadn’t been massively impressed by it but I don’t know, I wanted to give it a try and  I’m super glad that I did because it was really enjoyable. I want to read the sequel but I’m afraid of forgetting everything before the finale book ha!

Right now, I have a nice stack of books waiting for me. I just had my birthday which means birthday money and I bought SIX books – Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte, The Afterward by EK Johnston, The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro, Last of Her Name by Jessica Khoury, Tell Me Everything by Sarah Enni and Onxy & Ivory by Mindee Arnett. I also have a ton of books on my Kindle so I literally have no idea what I’m going to be reading this week at all!

Sara’s Newsies Corner

Here I share the news in the nerd world that I got excited about this week! It may not contain every bit of news – that would be insane!

It was my birthday this week! I turned 31 and it was a great week. I enjoyed a day to myself on Monday, had some of my favorite food and watched The Hate U Give for the first time, finally, went to Trader Sams and had some drinks and spent an entire day at Disneyland. Truly a great way to bring in a new age.

 

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 was just announced! I just finished watching the first season last night and it was SUCH SUCH a cliffhanger and I truly am so so stoked to see more of this show for sure.

As I mentioned above, Netflix announced there is going to be a ten part reboot series of The Baby-Sitter’s Club and I cannot contain my excitement for this. I loved this series so much as a kid/young teen and it truly had an effect on me as a reader and writer. My first stories were totally BSC fan fiction, let’s be real. I cannot wait to see what they do with it. Its obviously going to have to be updated and that’ll be interesting. Is it wrong that I still want Claudia Kishi and Stacey McGill to wear their amazing outfits?

THE JONAS BROTHERS REUNITED THIS WEEK and I’m so here for it. My younger sister was the big fan and, of course, by extension, that meant I listened to them A LOT. I adore the boys, I thought they were/are genuinely talented and have enjoyed their solo careers too. I love love love their new song, Sucker, and I love even more that their ladies (Priyanka Chopra, Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas) are all in the video. Just the cutest shit.

Also it reminds me of that time that I was THIS close to a selfie with Joe Jonas at one of the Hunger Games premiere, he was leaning in and some middle aged beotch pushed me out of the way and I’m still salty as hell about it!

Watched

I watched The Hate U Give movie FINALLY, ended up just buying it so I could watch it. I truly enjoyed it and actually watched it twice this week, once by myself and once with my boyfriend. I have a full review coming soon so I’ll just leave it at that.

I also finished watching The Umbrella Academy, which I also plan on reviewing. I will say – it started out super weird haha but it got better and it got so so addicting. Super glad I decided to watch it. I felt like the inner emo kid in me could NOT turn down something created by Gerard Way haha.

Listened To

I listen to music every single day but I haven’t really listened to anything new lately so not much to share in this section haha.
