Fangirl Five- April 20th

Fangirl Five is hosted by my girl Evil Eva at Nancy Drew is My Homegirl (check out her blog. She’s pretty awesome).

Here’s what’s on my brain this week:

1.  When You Were Mine by Rebecca SerleOkay, so the review of this book is coming.  I actually read it last week but my heart is still pitter pattering over the whole thing.  I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK.  And yes, I have a thing for Romeo and Juliet (this is a retelling from Rosaline’s perspective. Who is Rosaline, you ask?  Only the girl Romeo loved before Juliet. And this book is told from her perspective. Yowzas!).  That’s all I’ll say for now, except this: READ IT!! It comes out May1st.

2. The Vampire Diaries is back. Oh hells yes.  And yeah, I realize it was on last night. Those of you who frequent this blog regularly know that I record it and watch it on Friday mornings. I’m probably watching it right this very minute!  All I know is that I love Damen and Elena needs to get on that (I mean kiss him, um, obviously. What did you think I meant?).

3. Prom- Prom, like the actual dance, is awesome.  And It’s totally prom season; that season when boys go out of their way to find creative ways to ask girls to get all dolled up and go to what is probably the most awkward, over-hyped event of the year (but that is what makes it SO FREAKING GREAT). The other day, on the way home from an errand, I saw a huge yard sign (more like a banner) in someone’s yard, that said “Natalie, Prom?”  I’m going to assume that said Prom Asker ran out of paint  since his note was a little stilted, but still…the message was clear: I needed to rent the movie, Prom.   I mean, I never saw it when it was in the theater. My husband didn’t want to go (I know!. How could he NOT want to see this?).

So I rented it.  More on that later.

4. Starters by Lissa Price-

I finally got my hands on this book (thanks to my pals at Gone Pecan).  It’s like The Twilight Zone, which is never, ever a bad thing.

Happy Friday!

    • I think anyone will enjoy it (R&J fan or not), but this book explores it from a whole different side and it’s still heartbreaking but in a whole new way. Being a fan already just made it all the more emotional for me. 🙂

  1. OMG I LOVED THE MOVIE PROM! It was so incredibly cute. Maybe that makes me a nerd for loving it so much, but whatever. I’m glad that Prom Asker tempted you into renting it!

    • RIGHT??? Prom Asker unknowingly made my day! What an adorbs movie. I’m going to write a post about it so that I can scour the web for pictures of Jessie. I’ve cast him in books before, but I think I’ve been ignoring him lately. It’ll be tough work.

  2. i bought Starters a few weeks ago and i can’t wait to read it! i’ve heard that it’s kinda crazy. When You Were Mine sounds interesting too. i hadn’t seen it or any reviews for it anywhere so thanks for the suggestion (you can never have too many TBRs!)
    And of course TVD is always something to fangirl about! 🙂

  3. So I watched Prom on Netflix. Errr, rather, I watched like 15 minutes of Prom then skimmed over a bit and then tried to find The Kiss and then quit. That’s like the same thing as watching right?

    • Pretty much! You know, it’s one of those movies like Sweet Home Alabama or What A Girl Wants–something I enjoy and would watch again and again if I were passing it on TV. There’s no drama, there’s no sad, it’s just pretty people and prom. I’m good with that. 🙂
