YouTube Wednesday: Super Space Chick…your new BookTube best friend

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday we’re going to talk about an AMAZING YouTuber that you need in your life! If you haven’t heard of Super Space Chick (aka Kristin) then you are missing out on one of the best emerging BookTube channels on the internet! So now let’s get to the videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Kristin’s ‘Nail Art Tutorial Inspired By A Darker Shade of Magic’, which was uploaded on March 9th, 2015. In this video Kristin is joined by author Melissa Grey of the ‘novelnails’ Tumblr page. This is a very cool video that will show you easy, interesting ways to make beautiful nail art using a lot of inexpensive products, as well as things you may already have at home. Such a fun DIY project that you can try alone or with friends! The next video we’re going to talk about is her ‘Sailor Moon Book Tag’, which was uploaded on June 29th, 2016 (you can check out the video below). Personally I LOVE this tag because Sailor Moon is life (it’s a fact…just trust me on this). This is a very cute tag that asks bookish questions set to a theme involving numerous characters from the anime/manga. Also on a side note, Kristin cosplays as Sailor Moon in this video which adds the perfect touch and really shows what a fun personality she has.

Now we’re going to discuss Kristin’s ‘Books That Help Me Find My Way’ video, which was uploaded on March 19th, 2018 (you can check out the video below). This video was made in honor of Gayle Forman’s new book ‘I Have Lost My Way’, and features some of the books that have personally shaped Kristin which include: ‘Harry Potter’, ‘The Perks of Being A Wallflower’, ‘The Book Thief’, and many others. I really feel that this video shares such an important message of how the things we love shape who we become. Whether your hobbies include books, video games, sports, or academics, the things that we hold close to our hearts really determine the values we hold dear, as well as how we relate to the world. The final video we’re going to discuss is Kristin’s ‘Anime Wrap Up #3- Orange, Your Name, No Game No Life, Rose of Versailles’, video which was uploaded on July 20th, 2018. This is a really interesting video because it shows the diversity present on Kristin’s channel, and really helps you relate to her. On he channel, you can find book/manga/graphic novel reviews, anime reviews, various tags, and so many other interesting videos, that you will never be bored. These type of channels are always my favorite, because if we’re being honest, usually if you’re a book nerd you’re also a nerd in other areas of your life so it’s fun to see a YouTuber who’s not afraid to release their inner nerd.

Monday Memos: ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’ just gave you 1 more reason to watch Netflix

Thirteen Reasons WhyHello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to talk about a new show that we’re all going to want to check out on Netflix. If you have ever read the novel ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’ by Jay Asher then prepared to get really excited! In 2011 Universal Pictures purchased the rights to make ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’ into a film starring Selena Gomez. On October 29th (of 2015) it was announced that this book would instead be made into a 13 episode miniseries that will be executive produced by Selena Gomez, her mother Mandy Teefey, and Kristel Laiblin (who has also served as a producer for films such as The Man with the Iron Fists, In Time, and Children of Men). I’m not 100% sure if Selena will still star as the lead character Hannah Baker, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon so I’m excited to find out. Personally I am a HUGE fan of this book, so I’m excited to see this miniseries. This is the latest book to get a film/TV release, following other Young Adult novels such as: Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Divergent Trilogy, The Fault in our Stars, and the TV show Eye Candy, among many others. It’s really cool to see our favorite stories get a breath of fresh air by coming to life on the big and small screen, and I’m really excited to see which of our favorite novels will be added to this list next. So now let’s discuss the plot a little bit (and don’t worry there won’t be any huge spoilers).

 

The story revolves around the aftermath of the suicide of a high school girl named Hannah Baker. We follow the story through the eyes of a shy guy named Clay Jensen who is surprised to find a box of 7 cassette tapes from an anonymous person. He listens to the tapes and finds out that Hannah is narrating the tapes. On these tapes she explains that there are 12 people & 13 reasons that are responsible for her committing suicide. She says that each of the 12 people must pass the tapes along to the next person, otherwise someone else will release a second set of the tapes to everyone at their school. This is definitely a really interesting story that will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. The book ends with giving the audience a lot of really good life lessons, but do so in a very realistic non-preachy way. I am so excited that this book is getting more attention, and I am interested to see where Netflix takes this story.
