Monthly Wrap Up is a monthly (duh) feature on Stay and Watch the Stars! It’s the place to find out what’s going on in my life, what I’ve read, what I’ve posted, and more!
What I Posted:
I posted a short story, Acacia’s Monster
I participated in the Beautiful People linkup, wrote about Marina and the Diamonds for the My Hero Monday linkup, and talked about writing in different genres/ mediums for the Teens Can Write, too! linkup
My birthday was this month! I am now officially fifteen and feel no different. At all. It was exciting, though, even if I wish that I could just stay a kid forever.
Anyway, I got a really nice pair of headphones, a Hot Topic gift card (yay!), and some other smaller stuff from my parents, and my Grandma sent me an Amazon gift card. I used quite a bit of it for some new music, and I’m also planning to buy the Fabulous Killjoys comic.
But anyway, there’s something else that I’m really excited about- my hair is purple now! I can’t post pictures of myself, on here, but the color I used was Manic Panic’s Purple Haze and it looks really nice. It’s a really pretty darker color that looks a lot lighter in sunlight.
What I’m Listening to:
Bands: My Chemical Romance (as usual), Fall Out Boy (also pretty usual), Gerard Way, frnkiero and the cellabration, twenty one pilots
Albums: Regional at Best (twenty one pilots), Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (My Chemical Romance), Hesitant Alien (Gerard Way), Stomachaches (frnkiero)
Currently listening to: No Shows by Gerard Way (I really love the cheesy sci-fi feel to the music video)
Read This Month:
Red check marks for this month, purple for February, and green for January
I didn’t read nearly as much as I’d liked to have this month, but in my defense, I ran out of reading material and didn’t get around to a library trip.
A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas (Fairy Tale Retelling)- A really interesting spin on the story of Sleeping Beauty and pretty fantastic for a debut novel.
The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder (Pink Cover)- Very meh, and the ending was a gigantic letdown. It wasn’t bad, just forgettable. Kind of like a less pretentious version of The Fault in Our Stars.
Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis (PoC MC)- THIS BOOK WAS SO FREAKING AMAZING AND YOU NEED TO GO READ IT RIGHT THIS INSTANT. I AM NOT JOKING. DO IT. NOW.
Comics: She-Hulk vol 1 (good story, mediocre art), Captain Marvel vol 1 (AMAZING), and Civil War: X-Men (meh).
What books did you read this month? What music are you listening to? And what was your favorite post of mine? Is there anything you’d like to see more/ less of next month?
