Shattered Dreams | Spotlight Saturday [9]


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~

NEW-SPOTLIGHT-BLOGGERSo I can’t believe I have not spotlighted this person individually yet. (I even went back to all my other Spotlight Saturdays to make sure).

It’s none other then Aentee from Read at Midnight! Yes I have spotlighted her blog posts many times in the past, but I have never spotlighted her as an individual blogger. Shame on me!

Although I probably don’t need to, because you guys are already following her blog, she still deserves to get spotlighted! She was one of the first bloggers I came in contact with after re-opening my blog on WordPress and we became fast friends. She taught me a lot about graphics and I use her blog as inspiration for my own.

She writes great reviews, fantastic discussion posts, and is always one of the first people to comment on my blog posts! So go show her blog some more love. RIGHT NOW!

NEW-SPOTLIGHT-BLOG-POSTThis week I want to spotlight this cool series of posts a bunch of bloggers are doing through the months of October and November! Its for the Hogwarts School of Bookcraft and Bloggery.

The first post comes from Aila over @One Way or an Author. Her topic was: Transfiguartion, Books That Changed Your Life and Tips to Transform your Blog.

If you want some great tips on ways to spruce up your blog with content and visuals then this is the post for you! You get tips from 10 different bloggers as well as their recommendations for the books that changed their lives.

Your Hogwarts letter has finally arrived, so go have some fun! I can’t wait to see what the other bloggers are going to come up with!

NEW-SPOTLIGHT-BOOKSadly there is no book to spotlight this week as I am still reading The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima.

I’m a slow reader ok? Don’t judge…

NEW-SPOTLIGHT-MOMENTI woke up Saturday morning with a text from my closest friends inviting me to do a day road trip with them to Algonquin Park here in Ontario on Sunday. It sounded like fun so I said sure!

So if you follow me on Twitter (which you should by the way @BooksatDawn) then you know what happened. We were supposed to leave at 7am and I was up and ready for that. Sadly though, the driver was not. We didn’t end up leaving until 10am. Setting us back 3 hours.

But alas, we were on the road and making the best of a sour situation. It took us 4 hours to get there (because our front seat navigator got us lost) but we finally got there. Let me tell you how beautiful this park is in the fall time. All the trees were colors of red, orange, yellow, and there was light snow falling all around us. The trails were amazing and we took some great pictures! All in all I had fun and would definitely go back there next year!

NEW-SPOTLIGHT-APPThis week I want to spotlight an APP that has to do with something that’s very popular nowadays. It’s none other than Adult Coloring Books!

NEW-SPOTLIGHT-SONGLast week one of my favorite artists Demi Lovato, released her latest album, Confident. Let me tell you how awesome EVERY single song is on that album. By far my favorite from her and I wish I could spotlight all the songs. But I have picked 2 that I love.

Demi Lovato ConfidantDemi Lovato ft. Iggy Azalea – Kingdom Come

This track is life! From beginning to end I loved every second. It has great lyrics, amazing vocals, and a cool rap verse as well. But the instrumental is my favorite part of the song. It really sets the tone of the song. And then the chorus comes and Demi rocks those high notes with her unique vocal tone!

Demi Lovato ConfidantDemi Lovato ft. Sirah – Waitin On You

This song is amazing. The lyrics really hit you if you’ve ever been bullied, or trash talked behind your back. It exudes confidence and tells you to stand up for yourself and to not let others take advantage of you. Demi rocks the vocals and Sirah kills it with an amazing rap.

NEW-SPOTLIGHT-QUOTELastly I bring you another quote from Instagram this week!

“It can take years to mold a dream. It takes only a fraction of a second for it to be shattered.” – Stacy @book_junkee

Stay true to your heart and don’t let anyone convince you that your dreams are worthless and are too big. Whether it’s your parents, friends, teachers, or strangers. Your dreams are YOURS, not theirs.

Well there ya have it guys! My ninth Spotlight Saturday post! Thanks again Josie for letting me join in on the fun. Tell me what you guys want to put a spotlight on, I would love to know!

Until next time,

Sig New

  1. That quote! Omg, how did you know I needed to read that! Lol, just kidding.
    I think Aentee is queen! Her graphics are a dream and I also look up to her! One of the best things that happened to me was Aentee striking up a convo with me over a couple of my reviews and the rest is history. I adore her! Great spotlight! 😍

  3. I love Aentee, she’s so dope! I actually need to join in on this meme, it’s been a while since I’ve actually participated in one besides Waiting On Wednesday, so I definitely feel like I’m following off from my meme game lol. Ah you’re from Toronto, one of the places I am DYING to visit. I see tons of pics and it’s so beautiful out there!
