SASSY Saturday

Hey there my lovelies!

Welcome back to another round of my montly blog meme „SASSY Saturday“!

How does it work? Well, that’s easy! 😉

All you have to do is to follow those three golden rules:

1. Credit the creator of this tag (The Sassy Library Fox) and link back. (so I can see all your amazing answers!)
2. Answer the 5 questions below!
3. AND enjoy doing the blog meme! 😛

„SASSY Saturday“ is planned to be a monthly meme but if you want to do it more often feel free to go for it! This meme was created to get to know other bloggers, their new obsessions and to reflect on your own last month! Above all it was created to have fun though! 😉 If you want you can also use the banner I created! This said let’s head to the good part:

S – Series you loved this month

You’re Beautiful: Okay this k-drama is definitely very unknown because I never heard of it until it popped up on my Netflix feed. *lol* But boy was it good!! I was buddy watching this with the Yoongi to my V once again and we both loved it so much. (Honestly it was so funny we laughed tears.) It’s about a girl that has a twin brother named Ko Mi-nam who’s an idol and his manager is desperate and convinces her to pose as her brother because Mi-nam has gone abroad in order to get surgery. So yeah, of course she says yes and suddenly finds herself in the k-pop bands apartment and is forced to pose as her brother for weeks. *lol* I guess you can already imagine all the trouble she gets into while she’s posing as her brother and if you know anything about k-pop idols you know they are all gorgeous and sweet. So yeah, being a girl among them… *flame and hearty eyes emoji* *LOL*

Heartstopper: I won’t say a lot about „Heartstopper“ in here because I basically binge watched the entire series in a week (Yes, as a parent that’s binging for you. *lol*) and wrote an entire blog post about it! Yes, it was me raving about the series non-stop and if you’ve missed the blog post here’s the link: „Heartstopper“ TV series: I legit smiled through my tears! T_T Enjoy! ;-P

A – Author you discovered

32855079. sy475

L. Philips – Sometime After Midnight

I legit only read 3 books last month and it’s a miracle but I actually haven’t read any of the authors before. *lol* So I’m kinda spoilt for choice but I’ll just pick the book that got the most paws from me and that was „Sometime After Midnight“! It’s about two boys that come from totally different backgrounds and meet one night at a concert, but before anything happens the boy in the converse runs away and Cameron is left with a picture of his shoes. *lol* So yep, it started out as some sort of Cinderella retelling but it turned into so, so, so much more! Honestly I will write a long review about this because it deserves it! ❤

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Jimin & Ha Sungwoon – With You

I swear as ARMY you never have a quiet minute! *lol* Especially not when our boys prepare for a comeback in June! First Jimin & Ha Sungwoon’s OST came out and only a couple of days later SUGA released his „That That“ with Psy. *lol* Since I’ll probably listen to „That That“ all of May and will feature it in my next SASSY Saturday I decided to go with Jimin’s OST this month. XD It’s really so good and his lovely voice gets a chance to shine. =) It’s very calming and I love to listen to it on the train.

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

Haha! There were so many things that caught me off guard in April. In good and bad ways I may add. *lol* The super bad surprise was that my hubby actually got Covid right before Easter and our Easter holidays were spent in quarantine. >_< My hubby had to stay at home for 10 days and my kid was at home too because she could have infected other kids at the kindergarten and I was the only one that was allowed to go out and do grocery shopping etc. So uff. It was a busy time. XD Plus even more busy because at the beginning of April I decided to go on an educational sabbatical for a year and I had to organize everything at work and in my freetime. But hey, it has to get better now, right? *lol*

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

BTS (Bangtan Boys): J-Hope @ BooksWithNatasa

I really like this series on Natasa’s blog and even though I’ve been ARMY for years I still find out new things about our boys! ❤ I love that she gives all of them a moment to shine and it’s always fun to read her posts! =) If you don’t know her blog yet and are ARMY as well you need to check it out. Also she posts a lot about books as well so as a reader you can’t go wrong either! *lol* 😉 I think what I want to say is: Go to Natasa’s blog! XD

What do you think about „SASSY Saturday“? Would you like to join the fun? Have you watched „Heartstopper“ too and what did you think about it? Who is your fave character from the show? Did you have to go through quarantine as well and how is the current Covid situation in your country? (Over here it’s slowly getting better) And which new author did you discover last month?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

And as always, stay healthy and safe!

S – Series you loved this month

Emily in Paris: I needed to watch something nice that would let me dive into another world for a little while and „Emily in Paris“ was the perfect series to do that! XD I basically binge watched this, because the episodes are all between 25 – 30 minutes and there were only about 10 in every season. This said: I absolutely fell in love with Mindy and Luc. *lol* Those two are amazing and ahh Mindy can sing! ❤ I loved all the covers she sang in this series! Especially „Dynamite“ and „La vie en rose“. So good! =)

A – Author you discovered

Natasha Ngan – „Girls of Paper and Fire“

This was the first book of the series and I really enjoyed it. When I went into this I didn’t know that the demons look like animals so that was quite a surprise, but it somehow still worked for me? XD I dunno. *lol* The f/f relationship was such a slow burn but I found myself enjoying it a lot. I think the romance was very realistic and it was forbidden love so that kinda added even more spice to the story. Very curious about book two.

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

No More Dream – BTS

I already knew this song (of course I did because I’m ARMY ;-P) but I kinda rediscovered it in January and I love it so much! XD One of the most interesting things about the „2 COOL 4 SKOOL“ album is the fact that Jungkook actually started out as rapline! Which only proves that he’s truly the golden maknae of the group. He’s so good at rapping! And knowing this album exists makes me kinda sad that we don’t get to see a lot of rapping JK anymore. *lol* Also TaeTae could have easily been a part of the rapline too. =)

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That I was all alone at work for two weeks because all of my co-workers were knocked out due to Covid. >_< I never saw that one coming. I somehow always thought that at least two of us would be in the office but no such luck. Now some of them are back again and I’m so glad I’m not alone anymore. Still, I’m super exhausted and you can bet that I won’t do anything this weekend. I feel like I need a holiday. XD

„Book to movie adaptations coming in 2022“ by Elli @ AceReader

I really enjoyed this blog post because I didn’t know so many book adaptations will come out this year! I’m especially pumped for „Heartstopper“ because OMG!!! And it’s even going to be on Netflix so YESH!!! ❤ If you want to know which other books will be made into movies or series I highly recommend you to read Elli’s amazing post! 😉 Thank you, Elli!

S – Series you loved this month

„Free!“ Which is an anime series about a swimming team! *lol* I bet you never saw that one coming after all the k-dramas. XD But quite honestly I’m still not over „Crash Landing on You“ and I’m waiting for my Yoongi to finish the series so we can buddy watch the next k-drama. I need a buddy for k-dramas, they make me too emotional. Haha! Anyway! „Free“ is a really nice series and I love the found family trope! The only thing the four swimmers in the team have in common is their love for swimming and their female first names, but slowly and steadily they become friends and then family. ❤ It’s really so sweet to watch and I can totally recommend it!

A – Author you discovered

Michelle Hodkin – The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Now this was quite an interesting start for a series. I loved how Hodkin played with the typical YA tropes but somehow still managed to go for something really unique. XD Also can we appreciate sweet, kind and sexy Noah Shaw? ❤ That boy is just ahhh! I loved every conversation Mara and Noah had. They kinda have an enemies-to-lovers vibe going on, but not really? Like it’s obvious they are attracted to each other but Mara tries to stay away from him because he’s kinda the bad boy of the school. Add memory loss and a mental health rep into it and you have a really intriguing start for a trilogy. I can’t wait to dive into the next book!


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Coldplay X BTS – My Universe

Okay, technically this was only released on September 24th but since I’ve been listening to it every second I got a chance to this definitely qualifies as the song I couldn’t get enough of. Also the official video premiere of the music video was on September 30th and I quite literally watched it on my phone while I was on my way to work! *lol* The things us ARMYs do for our lovely boys! ❤ Also please tell me some of you watched the documentary of „My Universe“ because it was amazing and I love it so much! The mutual respect between Coldplay and BTS was quite a sight to behold and ahhh the way Chris was blown away by their professionalism and their strong brotherly bond was everything!

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

Okay, this is getting pretty serious now but yeah one of my family members that is close to my heart has health problems… the really severe kind. And I was on my phone writing with my Yoongi and she was there for me and listened to me basically word vomiting out all of my fears and worries and mostly sadness. So while we wrote she was silent for a couple of minutes and then she wrote that she just looked it up on google because she didn’t want me to feel even worse by having to explain it all to her. And I was already in tears but this kidness and the way she watched out for me only caused me to cry even harder. I have no doubt she’s reading this now so: THANK YOU!!! So, so much for not only being there for me when I needed it, but for also being such an amazing and awesome friend! ❤ I’m so grateful we became friends through BTS and being ARMY and I consider you to be one of my besties! Girl, if I haven’t told you already I’m doing it now: I purple you and I heart you! ❤

The Agust D ‚D-2‘ Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

To celebrate 1 year with Agust D’s ‚D-2‘ mixtape the Yoongi to my V came up with a book tag for it in May! And since I’m her V and a fellow ARMY she decided to tag me for it! I consider myself lucky to be tagged by her for all of her original BTS (BTS related) book tags because they are always amazing and I love to do them! 💜 I decided to go for a BookTube video again because I want this tag to spread throughout the whole world. *lol* It’s just too good and I hope many people will enjoy to do it as well! This said, let’s jump right into it!

Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post.
  • Link to the original tag’s creator: Sabrina @ Notes From a Paper Plane Nomad (please credit if using these graphics!)
  • Pick a book that fits each prompt.
  • Tag your friends or leave it open-ended!
  • Copy-paste these rules and list of prompts in your tag post (it should automatically pingback to the original so your post can be added to a masterlist!)

Here are the graphics with parts of the lyrics:

(All lyrics quoted are sourced from Doolset’s translations unless otherwise specified.)

“I wrote Verse1 f***ing fast,
But can’t make Verse 2 no matter how hard I rack my brain”

“Hit this town then cut and run in a jet
This country’s too small to hold me in yet” (lyrics from MV)

“What do you think, what do you think
Whatever you think, I’m sorry but I don’t f***ing care at all”

‘Strange’ (ft. RM): Dystopian

“We’re given multiple choices
And our taste is controlled by the capital”

“I grow older
And become to know the world
And yet, would it have been better to not know the world?”

“Whether it would become a blazing sun
Or the ashes left behind after being burnt —
Always, the choice and decision is yours to make”

“Your being ordinary is rather my being special
Your being special is rather my being ordinary”

“I thought I’d party every day when I become a superstar
But the ideal is slapping the reality in the back of its head”

“Set me free, I’m floating freely in the void”

“Still, as ever,
I miss you, and I miss you
Still, as ever,
The memories of us together circle around me

Dear my friend, how are you doing”

BONUS prompt!

If graphics aren’t your jam: Here’s a list of text-only prompts!

  • Moonlight: easy to get into but hard to finish
  • Daechwita: genre-bending
  • What do you think?: badass characters
  • Strange: dystopian
  • 28: coming of age
  • Burn It: fire in the cover/title
  • People: book you love that others didn’t, or vice versa
  • Honsool: didn’t live up to expectations
  • Interlude: set me free – feel like a dream
  • Dear My Friend: book involving letters/emails/notes
  • (BONUS PROMPT) Butter: sequel you liked more than Book 1

Tagging…

Since I couldn’t really tag anyone in the video except of everyone who watches it, I decided to tag people for it in this blog post!

Of course you don’t have to do the tag if you don’t want to! I just thought that you might! 😉

Also just in case you want to check out my BookTube channel: Here is the link!*lol*

This tag was so much fun and I want to thank Sabrina once more for creating it for us Agust D fans and ARMYs! The graphics and the prompts are super cool! They totally give me a Yoongi vibe! *lol* Did you read any of the books I mentioned in the prompts or do you want to read some of them? Do you want to do the tag as well?

And as always stay safe and healthy and take care!

Hey there my lovelies!

Welcome back to another round of my montly blog meme „SASSY Saturday“!

1. Credit the creator of this tag (The Sassy Library Fox) and link back. (so I can see all your amazing answers!)
2. Answer the 5 questions below!
3. AND enjoy doing the blog meme! 😛 

„SASSY Saturday“ is planned to be a monthly meme but if you want to do it more often feel free to go for it! This meme was created to get to know other bloggers, their new obsessions and to reflect on your own last month! Above all it was created to have fun though! 😉 If you want you can also use the banner I created! This said let’s head to the good part:

S – Series you loved this month

Shadow and Bone: I watched all of those 8 episodes at the beginning of the month and I regret NOTHING! *lol* I wasn’t all too sure they would be able to combine the two book series but they did a marvellous job and I really love the cast they chose! Also I liked that they made them older because it was way more realisic that way. XD Can’t wait for season two!

Hwarang: This is a buddy watch with my Yoongi and I’m so happy we’re watching this together because I live and breathe for her commentary and our discussions and theories about the episodes! *lol* You might say I came for Tae but stayed for the amazing cast and all the drama! ;-P But seriously this series is sooo damn good! So far I laughed and cried and shook my head and bit my fist! Haha! I’m feeling all the feels and I really hope this will end well for all of the Hwarangs. Also V is so damn adorable in this series I can’t even! ❤ (Plus the entire cast! Including V of course! All. so. damn. pretty!!!)

Stephanie Garber – Caraval

I’m about 50% into this book now and so far I really like it! I never read a book by Stephanie Garber but if I end up enjoying this I’ll definitely continue to read this series. For me „Caraval“ is a totally new concept and I’m very curious how it will all unfold. XD


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

BTS – Butter

I know, I know! It’s a BTS song again but seriously I’ve been listening (and dancing) to this ever since it came out and I just can’t get enough of this song! It’s too good! I love everything about it and the lyrics are some sort of personal attack. *lol* This is a song for ARMY and I’m sooo happy about it!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ Also the visuals! They are set on giving ARMY a heartattack! I will never get over JK AND Tae (in the GMA Summer Concert „Butter“ version) having a ponytail!!! NEVER! *dies*

Oh, and just in case you want to hear my thoughts and see my reaction to „Butter“:

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That I reached the amazing number of 90 subscribers on my BookTube channel. Quite honestly I never thought I’d even get close to that so it’s a surprise so many people are following and apparently also enjoying my channel. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll even reach the magical 100. *lol* You can always dream, right? ;-P

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

Why Leigh Bardugo’s Crows ARE The Umbrella Academy @ Hundreds & Thousands of Books

I enjoyed that post so much because it’s TRUE!!! *lol* If you compare the crew of „Six of Crows“ to „The Umbrella Academy“ you just gotta admit that they have similarities. XD I never thought about it until I read that blog post and now that I did I can only agree! This was a great idea and if you don’t already know „Hundreds & Thousands of Books“ you should definitely check out this blog! 😉

S – Series you loved this month

The Umbrella Academy! I finally started with season two on Netflix and even though I only watched the first 4 episodes I can say that I already love to be back with the team. *lol* I just adore the characters and how different they are and the occasional film noir vibe paired with the humour is just great! ❤ And of course I still love Klaus, Five and Diego! They seem to cause the most trouble which is probably the reason why I love them so much. XD

A – Author you discovered

54386750

Kim Fielding. I was lucky enough to get an ARC copy of „Teddy Spenser Isn’t Looking for Love“ and it was a really sweet romance. 🙂 I’ll definitely watch out for her other books now and I really wish this would have been longer!

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

BTS – Dynamite

I love this song so much! I could listen to it all day and I could watch the video of it even longer! I love my 7 boys and ADKFAKSDFALKSDFK! They are all so amazing! ❤ Their music and their positive attitude basically got me through 2020. So thank you BTS! You might not be able to perform in front of your fans now but we love and miss you at least as much as you love and miss us!!! Also I didn’t just spend an hour watching a youtube tutorial how to dance this… Nope. Totally didn’t, but if I did I would dance to it now. *lol* (I hate that my injured knee can’t keep up with some of the dance moves… T_T)

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

Some of the Christmas presents I got! They were really creative and my family and friends put a lot of effort and thought into them. 🙂 It was so nice to see how much they cared, especially this year so I’m very grateful for all the amazing things I got and I was definitely surprised by almost all of them. XD (I didn’t get any books though, but I got gift coupons to buy them myself which is probably better anyway because my family lost track of all the books I already read. A long time ago, I might add. ;-P)
