Fangirl Friday- February 3

Fangirl Friday is a feature hosted by my friend Evil Eva over at Nancy Drew is My Homegirl.  It’s where we blab about the things we’re most excited about this week.  This is a very good thing.

1. Where She Went by Gayle Forman– Yeah, I read this last year before it was released. And then I read it again and slobbered all over my review (I actually said I wanted to marry this book which, now that I think about it, is still totally true).  I loaned it to my beloved Vee a few months back and although she devoured it immediately, she’s had it for like six months. I was having Mia and Adam withdrawals so she sent it to me (thankyouthankyouthankyou).  First of all, I breathed a major sigh of relief that it was in my hands again, proof that I may need mental help. And then, even though I have at least a dozen books I’m supposed to read right now, I read it again. And let me just re-emphasize: THIS BOOK IS SWOON CITY!  Adam, oh how I love you.  I will wear my Team Adam button with such pride.

Side note: Evil Eva, you need to read this, ok?  Do it for me. Do it for Adam and Mia (but mostly for me).

2. The Vampire Diaries is back!  I record it and watch it on Friday mornings. I’m probably watching it right now as you read this. Bring on Damon and them crazy eyes! I’m there!  EEeeeeeeee!

3. Winter the Dolphin– Changing gears here. My family and I watched A Dolphin Tale on Friday (and yeah, the hubs and I totally cried) and since then we have been obsessed with watching Winter the Dolphin on her webcam.  You guys, laugh if you will, but she is stinking adorable.  You can check her out here.

4. Sam’s Town by The Killers– Ever get stuck on an old album? That’s me most of the time.  This week it’s been Sam’s Town. Especially this song.  It makes me want to dance around my house. I’m playing it relentlessly.

5. Legend by Marie Lu– All I can say about this book is HUZZAH.  I’m a little more than halfway through and this shizz is awesome.  It’s like a dystopian Les Miserables, only not.

  1. i know, i know. i HAVE to read Where She Went. i plan on reading it right after i read Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Which i am reading RIGHT AFTER i’m done with the book that i’m currently reading. There are just too many good books out right now that i can’t wait to read. But i promise, very soon i will join the i’ve-read-Where-She-Went club. (And i’ll probably fangirl about it afterward!)
    i’m really glad that The Vampire Diaries is back too! i LOVE that show! Damon (along with his crazy eyes!) has been amazing this season. And i’m really glad they brought back Elijah. He’s become one of my faves too! 🙂

    • I watched TVD yesterday and was so happy to see that Elijah came through. I totally loved his character too! I can’t decide if I like Nice Damon or Evil Stefan better. I’ve always been a Damon girl (because outside of the extreme cute he is way funny) and Stefan kinda bugged me but now I’m digging Evil Stefan.

      Also…so excited to hear about Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I know you’ll love it.

  2. Hooray for Team Adam. I have my pin on my laptop bag. I second the notion that Evil Eva has to read “Where She Went”! It’s such an amazing book series. Sigh + Swoon = Adam + Mia.

    So glad you’re digging Legend. I thought it was really well written and interesting. I dig the whole Republic of California idea. And what an epic story for her to tribute. I am always so impressed when an author pays tribute to another book/myth/legend without copying it too closely. I was going to mention kissing, but hello, you’re not done yet!

    I finally finished my Fangirl Friday (I know, it’s so late):

    • I can’t wait for kissing! I haven’t gotten too far in Legend (b/c I had another book that I needed to finish and it was a totally different, light, cute vibe. It was weird switching back and forth between the two). But now I’m back in. It is totally good yet I’m ready for some swoony times.
