Things We've Been Loving




Good afternoon and happy Monday!!! And Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians ! Recently, I've been strongly loving a couple of things and I just wanted to share it with you and try and give the best review possible. (It's widely known that I'm not very good at reviews because I just end up stating that it's great, that I love it so much and I recommend it to everyone, so this is a fair warning.) 

It's been a bit hard to pick up reading recently, but during the summer Daphne had lent me one of her books A Great and Terrible Beauty and I finished it about a week ago and it has everything I love. It enthralled me from beginning to end. It's set in the Victorian era, and Gemma Doyle doesn't have the same conformist mentality that girls of her class are trained to have. Also, Gemma Doyle has a very dark secret. She has visions, and even saw her own mother's tragic death. This book was perfect way to start October, it had an eerie feel to it, with visions, mentions of other realms, and demons. Who doesn't love a good story about witches and girls in power? And also, the Victorian era !! I can't wait to get my hands on the second book of the trilogy. If you have the time, you should definitely check it out !!

Okay so, Badlands by Halsey came out in August but I still listen to it everyday. Naturally, I had to write about it. I don't even know where to start with this review, Halsey is Ashley's singer name, it's a character, and I love them both so much. But I'll rave about her some other day, because even if you don't like Halsey's music, you definitely should understand why she's so important. Halsey has such great vocals, in my opinion. There's certain songs on her album (Control, Castle, Colors) that give me goosebumps and make me feel everything at once. She uses electronics and synths in such a clever way, and if you love Lorde then you'll definitely love Halsey. She's raw, honest, and Badlands is her story and to me, like her diary. You should definitely take a listen. She also recently came out with a music video for her first single New Americana

Troye Sivan !! Troye's second album, Wild, is what I've been listening to if I wasn't listening to Halsey. I had started listening to it because I saw his video(s) for 2 of his songs, of which he's make a 3 part series. You can watch WildFools, and the trailer to Bite. Like Halsey, his lyrics are very honest and he uses electronics and synths in such a great way, it's hard to describe. Bite is my favorite, and I would love listening to the album while reading A Great and Terrible Beauty

I hope my reviews are getting a bit better, and I hope you'll listen to Halsey and Troye!! And maybe read A Great and Terrible Beauty. While you're reading this I'll probably be listening to Halsey's song Control. Also, if you haven't heard Selena Gomez's new album you should !! It only came out a few days ago so I'm not able to properly write a good review, but my favorite from the album is Sober. 

Have a beautiful days lovelies!!
