I’m trying something new, let me know what you think.

The Grownish Season 2 Premiere was one hour long, so the first two episodes. I was live tweeting for the first time. I had so much fun reading everyone’s comments.

Let me start off with the non-spoilers, like the fact that the outfits were poppin as usual. Ana was wearing these white fishnet leggings with patterned shorts and it was just sooo cute. Also, the twins had their shoe game on point. Nomi’s rocking the coat and I’m not gonna pretend Zoey isn’t killing it with that striped sweater. In the famed words of Spongebob, “The best time to wear a striped sweater, is all the time.”

Before we officially begin, lets take a peek at my newest Bookstagram photos (I’m really enjoying this):

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (Movie Review)

Comments 4 Standard

I read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han pretty recently. The main reason I read the book was because of all the hype the movie was getting.

I had a feeling I would like the movie better and that feeling proved true. I’m not a big fan of teen romance novels but I love the films. I also feel like this concept works better as a film. The movie did a great job of condensing the book and taking its own turns. I loved the way it played out on screen.
