Fangirl Friday- February 17

Fangirl Friday is a feature hosted by Nancy Drew is My Homegirl. Basically, it’s where we chat it up about all of our most spazzworthy obsessions.  Here goes:

1. Adele- I know it’s played and played and played, but oh, seeing her win (and win, win, win) at the Grammys made me crave a good listen to 21.  In all honesty, I listen to her music relentlessly–but I was so happy to see her win so big.  And, on a side note, as much as I love her voice, you haven’t heard singing until you’ve heard my six-year-old trying to sing Rolling in the Deep in the shower.  I sit in the hallway and listen to her and it is the cutest thing EVER!!!

2. Hana by Lauren Oliver– Did you know there’s a short story between Delirium and Pandemonium? I didn’t either until my friend Maggie at Gone Pecan told me and was then nice enough to  send me the link.  It’s the story of Lena’s best friend Hana and what happens to her after Lena escapes. Come on. You know you want to read it.

3. I Fancy You- Alright, alright, I know that Valentine’s Day has passed, but did you see this cuteness?

I am so into this little crush that Klaus has on Caroline.  I mean yeah, he murdered his mum and yeah, he staked like, all of his siblings and has created a race of hybrids to serve him–but he has a fancypants English accent! And he paints! That has to count for something!

4. Lestat and Louis on Edward Cullen– To my Facebook friends, I’m sorry that you’ve already seen this, but I think it’s SO FUNNY.  It’s like Mean Girls with vampires. Love it!

5. Geek Love on TLC- I just caught and episode of this and am pretty sure it will be one of my favorite shows ever. It’s geeks! It’s speed dating! And Star Wars! This made me and the hubs want to hit Comic Con even more. Check it!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Fangirl Friday- January 13

Oooooh It’s Friday the 13th! (This really means nothing to me, but I can’t totally ignore it. Some people take that business seriously.)  After a few weeks away from Fangirl Friday, it’s back!!!  I love participating in this feature, but my husband and kids were home for three weeks of Christmas Vacation and that left little time for blogging. Now it’s on like Donkey Kong.

So where to begin? Fan Girl Friday is hosted by my girl Evil Eva at Nancy Drew is My Homegirl. Here’s what I’m obsessing over this week:

1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone– Sandi at Teen Lit Rocks is going to be so happy to hear this. I’ve finished the book (which was fantastic and so beautifully written, omg) and I’m still thinking about it.  I’m going to have to re-read it soon.

2. My husband read The Hunger Games. And liked it- This excited me because any time someone reads a book I recommend to them and likes it, I feel validated (it’s sad really). Also, he gives me serious crap for reading YA (though he’s a mega bookworm too) so to have him read it and like it makes me smile sweetly and say “In yo face Hubs! (but I still love you)”.

3. The Five Year Engagement- Forever Young Adult did this great post on Tuesday and it was then that I saw the trailer for The Five Year Engagement.  OMG, I want to see this movie. I love movies with people who are dorky and funny and who either get hurt and/or fall down alot. This movie was made for me.

4. There are awesome books sitting on my bookshelf right now:

5. Universal Studios Baby- I’m taking a trip to Universal Studios, Hollywood this weekend. I haven’t been there in years!
