Spotlight Saturday | #1

spotlight saturday

Hello, wonderful humans. So, since I won’t be getting too much reading done while I’m at school, I thought it would be a great idea to introduce another weekly feature to my blog. I saw this over at Josie’s Book Corner (the creator) a few weeks back, and I absolutely loved the idea. Books are amazing and all, but sometimes, you just want to talk about other stuff, and this feature gives you the opportunity to do just that. So, thanks Josie for creating such a wonderful feature- I can’t wait to become a regular. 😀

Here’s the official description:

Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner, dedicated to spotlighting and pinpointing some of the things over the week that have caught our attention more than usual, things we’ve particularly loved, etc. 


spotlighted blogger

There are so many fantastic bloggers out there, and every time you go looking, you find someone you know you’re going to be following for a very long time. Giving these blogs and hardworking bloggers the recognition they deserve is super important, and I think this feature is a brilliant way of doing that- you let the bloggers know that you appreciate their work, while also giving them exposure to your audience. How lovely!

Today, I’m going to be talking about one of my favorite bloggers who just happens to be this feature’s creator as well, and her name is Josephine from Josie’s Book Corner. Josie’s not only a fantastic blogger, she’s also a very lovely person. She constantly interacts with people, and her lovely comments always brighten my day. As for her blog, her blogs are always well-done. They’re nicely thought out, and her book reviews are cohesive and brilliant. Her graphics are very snazzy and bright, and I love how uplifting they make her blog! If you’re not following her already, definitely do so! She’ll make your WordPress Reader a happy, happy place! <3

spotlighted blog post

Since this is my first feature, I’m going to be expanding my blog-post-choosing-pool a little bit. I decided to go for a post that was posted last Friday, rather than after last Saturday! This is Aentee @ Read at Midnight’s post where she shared some of her Throne of Glass designs. I love Aentee’s graphics- she’s so brilliant when it comes to aesthetic. I always look forward to her graphics, but these ones were absolutely breath-taking. So wonderfully done, and they perfectly capture the essence of the series.

spotlighted book

I haven’t been reading a lot, as you may already know. But of the books I’ve (somewhat) read this week, the Final Empire was by far the best. I’m not too far into this- just over 60 pages, but I’m enjoying the tone so far.

spotlighted moment

For those of you who didn’t know, Thursday was a special day for Muslims all around the world; we celebrated Eid-ul-Adha, which is one of the two annual festivals, the other one being Eid-ul-Fitr. Usually, people wake up early, dress up in their best clothes, pray, have lots and lots of yummy food and hang around with their family. Unfortunately, I had college, and I didn’t want to take a day off because midterms are fast approaching. So while I couldn’t be with my family, I did however get to hang out with a few friends. We went out, treated ourselves to some expensive lipstick (LOL), looked around Barnes & Noble and then had some delicious sushi. All in all, it was a good day! 🙂

spotlighted app

spotify_transparent_logo-1

Spotify is my savior. I’ve been discovering such wonderful music on Spotify. I’ve never been a person who makes tons of playlists, but Spotify has made me that person. Goodbye to buying music on iTunes- a Spotify subscription does wonders! My favorite part of Spotify is that it contains most Pakistani music too! 😀

spotlighted song

Stitches

This is so far from what I usually listen to, but I can’t get this song out of my head. It’s very catchy, the tune is happy-go-lucky (even though the lyrics are kind of sad?).

spotlighted quote

Okay, since I haven’t been watching movies or reading books, I have to give this one to “SHONDELL, WHY YOU GOT A KNIFE IN YOUR THROAT?!” from Scream Queens. Whenever I think about that scene, I choke on air from laughing. If you haven’t seen the first two episodes of Scream Queens, you should get on that. It’s hilarious and cheesy and absolutely wonderful. 😀

Join the List

  • Love your post! Have you listened to the acoustic version of Stitches that he sang together with Hailee Steinfeld? It’s sadder, but I kinda like it even more.

    • Yesss, I just heard it last night. I do like it, but I just love the upbeat tempo of the original one! 😀

  • Love this post! 😀

  • Great post! I’m going to check out that song as well 🙂

  • Aw, Aimal! *hugs* ❤ You’re so sweet for spotlighting me and also joining in on this feaure! I would LOVE to see you become a regular every Saturday for this feature!
    Yay for Spotify! Spotify is the bomb, and its the only way I listen to music. I used to (illegally?) download music from YouTube to mp3, but gosh that was a tiresome effort! When Spotify walked into my life, I never looked back.
    And that’s such a shame you missed out on your special day! School can be such a downer! I know because I’ve had to lock myself in my room for this week to study for exams instead of being out with friends on a lovely three day camp!

    I loved your spotlights, and I need to check out that song! And that quote! Haha! I haven’t watched the movie but it’s still an outrageous quote.

    xoxo, @ Josie’s Book Corner

    • You’re very welcome, Josie! <3
      And yeah, I used to download stuff illegally too. At least I don't have to do that anymore. And I get Spotify at a discounted price too because I'm a student, so it's a win-win situation. XD
      Aww, sucks that you had to miss camp. But hey, exams are important. At least you're not procrastinating. 😀 I'm the queen of procrastination though. I have two midterms next week and I don't know anything. XD
      You should check out Scream Queens! It's a new TV show. Only three episodes are out atm! It's outrageously ridiculously good. XD
