Weekly Favourites #2


This is the second book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. I loved the first one and after the way things went down, of course I had to continue on with this series. This story is about a huntress named Feyre, who is out hunting for her and her family one day and she spots a wolf in the forest. She kills the wolf and is confronted by a beast-like creature who demands retribution for it. She is taken to the magical faerie realm of Prythian, which she has heard legends of over the years. She discovers that her captor is not a an animal but Tamlin--one of the deadly and immortal faeries who once ruled their world. As she is kept at his estate, her icy hostility towards Tamlin transforms into a fiery passion that extinguishes everything she's heard about his kind over the years. But an ancient, wicked shadow looms over the faerie lands, and Feyre must stop it before she dooms Tamlin--and his world--forever. This retelling of Beauty and the Beast is a wonderful blend of fantasy and romance. So far, I'm almost to the middle of the second book--A Court of Mist and Fury--and it is even better than the first one. Can't wait to finish/don't want to finish this book (so conflicting!). If you're interested by the synopsis, then I would definitely check it out. You won't be disappointed.   


Oh my gosh... I went to Loblaws on the weekend and look what I found. Cheetos came out with a new flavour! Since it's Halloween themed I'm afraid it's only out during October *cries*. These taste so so sooooooo good. They are the "puff" version of Cheetos which I've never really liked so I was really hoping I would enjoy these. I love everything cheese so it's no surprise that I wanted to try these out for myself. But what's even more fun than the flavour of these is that by using the four shapes in the bag they create a skeleton! I have yet to actually make the skeleton since all I've been doing is stuffing my mouth with this.... but oh well. Guess that gives me an excuse to buy another bag!


I watched Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children over the weekend and it was so incredibly amazing. Tim Burton was the perfect director for this movie. His vivid imagination commingled with the quirkiness and creepiness of the book worked so well together and translated fantastically to the big screen. This movie is based on a book by Ransom Riggs so if you are interested in reading it before watching it in theatres, you can buy it here. I did not read the book before watching the movie so I don't know if the movie followed the book exactly. Besides that though, I really enjoyed the film. Since the books are in a series, hopefully, with the movies good ratings there will be more movies to come. I highly recommend if you want to watch something that's quirky and original with lots of vibrant colour and good messages. 


I just love these two songs so much and have been playing them on repeat all week. I chose these two young female artists for this week's weekly favourite's so if you've never heard of them, I would really recommend checking them out.

Strange Birds is so powerful and emotional. Birdy has such a strong and mature voice and I've loved her music for a long time now. I recently found out that this song is co-written by Sia which is pretty interesting since it does sound like a song that she would sing. The minute I heard this song it reminded me of Skyfall by Adele which is such a powerful song as well. Such an amazing song sung by such an incredible young talent.

On Purpose by Sabrina Carpenter is a pop-y love song with honest and meaningful lyrics accented with a nice beat. I just love the uniqueness that is her voice and how she writes songs about love but doesn't make them cheesy or redundant but rather different, refreshing, and purposeful (get it? *wink wink hint hint nudge nudge*). I have just been listening to and loving the rest of her new album EVOLution that came out on October 14th. It's so different from her last album and you can definitely hear her growth and different style in her new music. 

I hope you enjoyed today's post and have a Happy Friday and a great weekend!

  1. Hmmm, those cheetos... please may I have some of that. I do love my chips. And it's a good skill to have... being able to create fire especially being a fire sign. The movie looks entertaining and wacky and wild. xx

    1. Lol, I still need to repurchase the cheetos but you're getting some next time I see you. And you're a crazy lady...fire sign...*shakes head and sighs* Love you lots though!
