A review of Paramore’s new album After Laughter

I discovered Paramore years ago while I always heard of their songs on the radio and enjoyed them, I officially didn’t become a Paramore fan until they had Decode in the Twilight Saga Twilight soundtrack. After that, I became a huge fan of their music. I bought all of their albums and went on a listening spree. Ever since then I have been listening to them. Through all the shakeups of the band itself.

On to the review….

I absolutely love After Laughter, its a fresh new take on indie pop music and I love it honestly am living for it right now. I love all of the songs. They each tell a story and are beautifully told through this album. My favorites right off the back after listening to it about 5 times over would be Pools which I am obsessed with because of the background  noise of the song, Rose -Colored Boy which is a happy- make- you- want- to- dance song, Fake Happy which starts off as a sad ballad, and the goes into a more happier tone, Told You So is a really catchy song, and of course Hard Times as it was the first single out of their album to have a music video. Honestly, though I really like each song and they each have the band’s heart and soul in them.

Paramore is back and stronger than ever!!

Elusive release day blitz!

 

 
Elusive by Ali Dean
Release Day Blitz
May 24, 2017
 
Kate Walker has a new identity. She’s escaped her past and lives a fairly normal life for a 22-year-old. She’s about to graduate college and bartends to pay the bills. But when her past begins to catch up with her, Kate’s reminded that normalcy is only a façade.

 

When unexpected events land her rooming with billionaire heirs Sebastian and Evan Webster, remaining reclusive becomes more difficult. As Kate fights her attraction to one Webster brother, she begins to wonder if living in hiding is really living at all.

 

Is her safety worth sacrificing a chance for love and friendships?

 

After all, safety may just be an illusion.

Everything, Everything movie review. Beware of Spoilers!!!

 

First off I want to say I never read this book before. I usually read the book before seeing the movie of a book adaptation, but I was unable this time around. I will be reading the book now because I am interested in what they left out. I actually really liked the storyline and the premise behind this tale. I honestly thought this was going to be like Me Before You or The Fault in Our Stars. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised that no one died in this film.  Just to be prepared, I brought a pack of tissues to the early screening I attended last week. I wasn’t sure that I would need them or not.

It was a really cute movie! I liked the characters and their story. However, there were somethings that did not add up. Like the fact that the main character Maddy played by Amanda Stenberg easily applies and gets a credit card just only turning 18 years old. Also the fact that when Maddy and Olly played by Nick Robinson take off to Hawaii they rent out what looks like a nice place and honestly looks like an Air B&B house. Let’s be real in order to book a nice house or condo you have to be at least 21 and there both 18 years old, so that wouldn’t add up. Also the fact that they show Olly in what seems to be a rental car. First off I believe you have to be 21 and show proof of insurance and a credit card in order to rent a car.

Even with those things on my mind about the movie. I still liked it well enough to recommend it. Hopefully, the book will explain some things that I feel needed more of an explanation.  As for the music played in the film. I really liked the songs they played in the background and I want to buy the soundtrack.

If you saw the movie, let me hear your opinions of it in the comment section below:

I honestly can’t believe that it has been three years already. I remember getting the idea to create my blog because I loved a lot of things and I wanted to share my love of things on a blog. My very first post was about the season 1 finale of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Cheers to another year in the books!

Thanks to all of my followers for making my blog what it is today.

Cover reveal for Trust by Kylie Scott!

We are so excited to share the cover for Kylie’s Scott’s first ever YA and Indie published book TRUST releasing JULY 18th!

Cover by Hang Le

 

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

Music Mondays- Week 1

I decided that since I listen to a lot of music constantly, I should do a weekly series with songs I am in love with currently or just love in general. I will try and keep up with this for as long as I can. I might take a break for two weeks because of the Spring semester coming to a close, but I thought it would be cool to share some of the music I listen to. I always like hearing suggestions for new music to listen to, so if you have some suggestions please comment the artist/band or song down below!

-Thanks and have a lovely Monday evening.

In no particular order here is some music that I was listening to this past week.
