Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner, 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.
So now that you guys know what it’s all about, how about you join in the fun and hop on over to Josie’s Book Corner and check out how to do so~
This week I want to spotlight a blogger who I have come to know and admire. It is none other then Ashley from The Socially Awkward Bookworm.
She is always reading and commenting on my blog posts and showing me the love. So this is me giving back. I love her blog. It is so simple and pretty! She has great content as well. I love her tags and memes because we have very similar tastes and opinions. Plus her reviews are always on point and one of the few people I turn to for good books to read next.
So go check out her blog and show some love! You can never give too much of that!
This week I have two blog posts I want to spotlight because they were just too good to just choose one! We’ll start off with The Best Writing Advice Anyone’s Ever Given Me by Breeanna Pierce @Breeannapierce.
In her post she talks about writing the story you want to read. I think this is such great advice because it will keep you interested and in love with what you are writing. Don’t write something that will please others, write something that will please you. Because there will be at least one other person in the world that would love to read it too. If you want to go more in depth with the topic, head on over to her post and check it out!
Why do I think this is such an important topic? Because EVERYONE in this world needs to be able to relate to characters in one way or another. Whether it is ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, or any sort of physical/mental disability. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of reading books about the blonde hair blue eyed white hero/heroine/protagonist and their perfect band of perfect white friends. Like I said in my comment on the post. Instead of the perfect white assassin, how about we get a story on the her black warrior princess best friend. Just something to think about. If you want to join the discussion, head on over to her post!
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Darkness never dies.
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land. She finds starting new is not easy while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. She can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
Let’s hope I can finish this one quickly as I am falling behind in my reading schedule!
It was such an amazing concert. They played all their new songs from their forth coming album yet to be released, M.A.D.E. The light show was amazing, the pyrotechnics was amazing, the vocals was amazing, the band was amazing, the visuals were amazing, the outfits were amazing, the dancers were amazing, and of course my boys were amazing. I’m thinking your catching on that this concert was … AMAZING. Although I was up in the nose bleeders because I’m so poor T___T I still was able to have the best time with my friends. Let’s just say I didn’t have a voice afterwards from all the fanboying and singing I did.
After the show ended they came back to do an encore of two songs, BUT they didn’t want to leave just yet so they started playing songs that they had already sung earlier. They were adorable and their English was amazing! I loved every moment from the concert and if I ever get the opportunity again, I want to see them in the future!
Ok, the fanboy in me is now satisfied. Thank you for bearing through that. You may move on now!

With the release of their last three Japanese singles, AOA is back with their first Japanese Album. Leading with the single Oh Boy, we get a fast upbeat song with amazing vocals and an addictive hook. The visuals and choreography are also on point with the concept of the song. Very AOA style.
Selena Gomez just released her 2nd solo album this week after releasing two singles, Good for You and Same Old Love. But their is one song in particular I want to spotlight, and it’s none other then Kill em With Kindness. This song has such a good message and a motto that I try to live by in life. With great instrumentals and vocals, Selena really knocks it out of the park with this one.

Just because things feel good, just because you don’t want to change things, don’t be with someone who can’t give them 100% of themselves to you. You deserve better then that. Always remember that!
