A Reading Playlist // a.k.a I add more books to your TBR :)

Hello, citizens of the internet!

So, I recently finished Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist – and realised that the past few books I read all had something to do with music. So, I had the brilliant idea of making a (play) list of all books I’d read which had something to do with music/playlists. Which, come to think of it, is a lot of books. Huh.

I guess it’s because both music and books tell stories – and because there’s a story for every occasion. Sad, happy, or romantic*.

*ok that went deep.
(Also, all book covers link to their Goodreads pages. You’re welcome.)

Fierce Fangirl Friday: MUSICALS!

Hello, fellow fangirls (or boys) of the internet!

Fierce Fangirl Fridays are put on by the wonderful and lovely Jackie @ Too Much of a Booknerd. If you’re not following her already, seriously, go do it, because she’s amazing. Now, what is Fierce Fangirl Fridays? Basically, it’s where you fangirl/boy over anything – that’s right, each week you pick a different thing you’re fangirling about the moment and JUST RUN FREE WITH THE FEELS. Only rule? Just pingback to her post here! It’s so easy that it hurts. 😄

It’s probably no surprise for you guys to find out that I love musicals (after all, I have a whole post fangirling about Hamilton), but I never really cared much for musicals before?? And now that I’ve sunk into that hole discovered them, I can’t STOP LISTENING TO THEM.

Musicals are great because they tell stories through songs. Which is an awesome change from all the trashy pop music going around! (Noah Fence to anyone.) And the story lines are usually awesome: take Heathers. It starts off as your everyday high school drama, but ends up into a murder mystery/kill everyone sort of thing. It also deals with lots of problems, like suicide, psychopathy, and depression, along with general murderous tendencies and what to do if you have them. 🙂

So, for this post, I planned on listing some of my favourite musicals and FANGIRLING ALL OVER THEM BECAUSE NONE OF MY FRIENDS LISTEN TO THEM AND I AM IN SEVERE NEED OF A FELLOW FANGIRL.

Things book lovers do better than anyone else

Hello, bookworms of the internet!

Now, it’s no secret that bookworms are superior creatures that are blessed with many, many talents (like the ability to enjoy reading). Normally, you won’t notice these talents. Of course we’re not going to go around bragging about our ability to identify all cheap bookstores within a five-mile radius. But there are, without a doubt talents that all bookworms possess. Here’s a reminder of what they are.

The Ultimate Harry Potter Tag!

Hello, fellow book lovers!

HAPPY HARRY POTTER DAY!! 😀 The 31st of July is truly a sacred day. The birthday of the Chosen One, and our queen JK Rowling.

So, I was stalking bloggers I found under the “Harry Potter” tag, and I found this really cool one done by That Weird Brown Girl, and I JUST HAD TO DO IT. IT’S PERFECT FOR THIS MOMENTOUS OCCASION. Why would any Potterhead pass up this chance?

Reading Sprees + a bunch of mini reviews

I’d planned something else for this post, but then I went on an internet detox (*LE GASP DRAMATIQUE*) and ended up reading 5 books in two days…


Hello, internet people!

Yeah, you read that right. I went on an internet detox (you, probably: BUT ARIS HOW COULD YOU COMMIT SUCH SACRILEGE???). Calm down, it was only for like three days. And I came back, didn’t I?

But over the course of this detox, I realized that there’s so much I can do while I’m not on the internet! Like read!! :O I may have overdone that though.

Yes, I read five books over the course of two and a half days. It’s not ~that~ much. I guess. I know people who read faster. But I am kind of surprised.

You know how you want to stop reading but you just reached a very important part and just can’t stop?? That was me the whole weekend.

Books to read based on your Hogwarts Houses

Hello, fellow citizens of planet Internet!

Seeing as it is the merry month of July, and that the Chosen One’s birthday falls at the end of the month, I decided to do a Harry Potter-themed post. After all, how many times have we done things based on our Hogwarts houses? I’m a Ravenclaw, which I think suits me quite well 😀 My best friend is a Slytherin so we complement each other’s personalities.

Okay, let’s get started with this list! 😀

    levi.PNG
    Is he cute or what??? His name is Jonathan Levi Laurens (what are you talking about I totally didn’t name him after John Laurens psshh who even is that guy) but I usually just call him Levi. :3 Also we like qualified for Yale so that!!! 😀
  2. Sorry for not posting in so long 😦 I had that kind of writer’s block where you’re like “i have so many things i want to write but i’m too lazy”. it’s the worst kind tbh.
  3. And as of 5th July, I am officially thirteen!! Dear god I sound so young. I may be only 13 but my mind is older, ok? (btw happy 4th to you Americans!)

Now onward with the post!


Hello, citizens of planet Internet!

WSC Vietnam (Day 4)

Hello you wonderful citizens of the internet!

Today was the busiest and most nerve-wracking day of them all. I am so glad it’s finally over. But it was really fun and energetic, too. 🙂

So we got up at like 5:30 and went for breakfast at around 6:00. The bus took us to one of the schools in Vietnam, where the different events throughout the day would take place. We were in T36 Penguin, which meant that we were at the primary school and had our debates first.

The first event for everyone was the Scholar’s Challenge: it’s basically a multiple-choice test with really hard questions. But since this is the WSC, there’s a slight alpaca-twist: you know when you’re stuck between A and B and want to choose both but you can’t? Well in this test you can. You can pick more than one option, and you’ll get points if they’re right! Of course, you’ll get less points – but it’s better than nothing.  Continue reading “WSC Vietnam (Day 4)”
