Monday Memos: Book Review of ‘Noteworthy’ by Riley Redgate

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ I have a new book review for y’all! Today we will be discussing ‘Noteworthy’ by Riley Redgate, which was provided for review by Amulet Books. This book was released on May 2nd, 2017, & I will put a trigger warning about the amount of profanity in this book (because there’s a lot) so if this bothers you this might be one you wanna skip. We have a lot to talk about today so let’s get to the review. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

‘Noteworthy’ is about a high school junior Chinese-American girl named Jordan Sun who goes to a very expensive, very exclusive school called Kensington-Blaine Academy for the Performing Arts. Due to the fact that Jordan has a voice type that is lower than most girls, she has a difficult time booking roles in her school’s productions. When an opportunity to join Kensington’s premier all-male A Capella group the Sharpshooters arises, Jordan decides to masquerade as a boy for a chance to join the group & compete in an upcoming contest the Sharpshooters are in to win the opportunity to travel on a tour with a professional A Capella group called Aural Fixation. Due to the fact that Jordan is a scholarship student & her family is doing worst & worst financially, she feels that if she is able to go in this tour that her parents will finally see that her education at Kensington is worth the high price tag they have to pay for books & travel to & from the school every year. She also feels that her parents don’t support her dream of becoming an entertainer, so she hopes that they will fully support her dream if she wins a spot on this tour.

 

Ok now let’s dive into the review. I really wanted to like this book. I tried you guys, I really tried to like it, but I just couldn’t. This book had so much going for it: diverse characters, some funny dialogue between the characters that really made you love them, & show choir. I’m all about show choir you guys, I was in show choir for a little while in high school, so believe me when I say that I will always pick up a book that centers around music or musical theater. Unfortunately for this book, the problem was that it’s just so boring! The plot is super slow, Jordan is really annoying at times, & about half way through the book I wanted to drop it (and honestly if this hadn’t had been a review copy I would’ve dropped this book). I kept skimming through the last half of the book because I just wanted it to be over so I could move on to something else. Because of this I have to give this book a 1 smiley face review & will probably never read anything from this author again because her writing style just did not click for me.

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.

YouTube Wednesday: Natalie Barbu, the inspirational beauty/fashion that YOU need in your life

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss an amazing beauty/fashion/life guru named Natalie Barbu. Natalie is a recent college graduate who is now beginning her career as an Industrial Engineer. The reason why I decided to focus on Natalie’s channel today is not only due to her vast knowledge on beauty & fashion, but also because of how interesting & unique her channel is. Trust me as soon as you watch one of Natalie’s video you’ll be so immersed that you’ll instantly want to subscribe (which you should do because why miss out right? Right!). So now let’s get to the videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The 1st video we’re going to talk about is Natalie’s ‘My First Dorm Room Tour!’, which was uploaded on December 4, 2014 (you can check out the video below). I know, I know it’s summer & nobody wants to think about school, but it will be time to go back before we know it & you gotta be ready (stop booing!). Now what’s one of the most important things about starting college? You got it, shopping! If you’re gonna live in a dorm/apartment or just want to update your room then this video will offer you some GREAT inspiration about cool things you can buy/make in order to make your space uniquely you. So now that we’ve covered the future, let’s talk about a video that will help you right now! Let’s discuss Natalie’s ‘Healthy Summer Snacks | Quick And Easy’ video, which was uploaded on July 15, 2015. Now if you made a New Year Resolution to eat healthier but haven’t started (so basically all of us), this is a MUST SEE for you! In this video Natalie shows how to make easy, inexpensive snacks that everyone can enjoy all summer long. Also, as an added bonus you can also transition these snacks into your fall routine as a good after school snack (so you can be as lazy as you want & only memorize a few recipes while being able to snack healthily. Everyone wins!).

Now we’re going to look at Natalie’s ‘DAD TAKES OVER MY TINDER ACCOUNT Inspired by Why Him?’ video, which was uploaded on April 7th, 2017. In this video we definitely get to see more of Natalie’s fun, bubbly personality, as well as how funny her dad is. It’s hilarious to see Natalie’s dad swipe through her Tinder profile, and to hear his reasons why certain guys don’t make the cut. It’s a really fun video that we can definitely all relate to. Lastly we have her ‘BEING A GIRL IN ENGINEERING + Why More Girls Need to go into STEM’ video, which was uploaded on June 26th, 2018 (you can check out the video below). This is a very interesting video in which Natalie tells us about her experiences as a women pursuing a career as an engineer. She also goes into detail about the doubts & offensive questions she’s encounter while pursing her degree. It’s amazing to see YouTubers who are not only knowledgeable about the skills they showcase on their channels, but also take the time to talk about their own experiences/hardships with their viewers.

YouTube Wednesday: Ellko…the beauty/lifestyle guru that you NEED to be subscribed to in 2016

ellkoHello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss an amazing YouTube guru that you need to subscribe to now (like literally go subscribe right now, I’ll wait right here for you. Everyone done? Good, then let’s continue!). If you love watching gurus that are entertaining, knowledgeable, and unique YouTubers then you’re going to love Ellie Kodia’s (aka Ellko) channel. In a little over a year Ellie has obtained 422,700 subscribers, and 56,045,021 total channel views (so obviously this is a CAN’T MISS channel). So now let’s get to the part you came for, the videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Ellie’s ‘Mascara Tournament’ video, which was uploaded on August 10th, 2014. In this video we are able to not only see how knowledgeable Ellie is about beauty products, but also get a small glimpse of how naturally gifted she is as an on-camera talent. If you want to check out an amazing, entertaining video that will help you decide what mascara you should try next, then this is the perfect video for you. The next video that we’re going to discuss is Ellie’s ‘Beauty Hacks: Fail or Holy Grail? Red Lipstick Concealer, which was uploaded on February 6th, 2015 (you can check out the video below). This is one of the many awesome videos that Ellie has in her channel’s show ‘Beauty Hacks: Fail or Holy Grail’. In this show Ellie tries different internet beauty hacks and let’s us know if it works or not. So if you want to know whether or not you should try an internet beauty hack, then this is the show you’ve been waiting for.

 

The next video that we’re going to talk about is Ellie’s ‘Dia&Co Unboxing Haul & Try On’ video, which was uploaded on August 27th, 2015. In this video we not only get introduce to an awesome subscription site, but also get a sense of Ellie’s personal style (on a side note if you love fashion & wear a size 10-32 then you’ll want to check this site out). In this video Ellie explains why she loves this subscription service, and even models the clothes so you can get a sense of how they fit. If you love fashion then you HAVE to watch this video. The final video that we’re going to talk about is Ellie’s ‘Art Haul: My Agnes Cecile Print Collection’, which was uploaded on February 17th, 2016 (you can check out this video below). I chose this video as the last one that we’re going to discuss because I thought that the subject matter was very unique and intriguing. I love it when beauty gurus use their amazing sense of style in unexpected avenues. It’s videos like this that show how different Ellie is from other beauty/fashion gurus, because she is able to add that special something that makes each video an Ellie original.

YouTube Wednesday: readbyzoe…the Booktube channel that your subscription box NEEDS!

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss an awesome new YouTube readbyzoechannel that every book lover will want to subscribe to right now (well finish reading this post and then go subscribe to the channel…ok? Ok). On this channel Zoe gives her viewers book recommendations, shows us book/bookmark hauls, and proves that she’s a fangirl just like the rest of us (so we can all obsess over our OTPs together yay!!!). So if you’re ready to release your inner nerd then let’s talk about some of the videos on this amazing channel. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Zoe’s ‘BOOK UNHAUL! [#1]’ video which was uploaded on June 28th, 2014 (you can check out this video below). Honestly this is one of the first book unhauls that I remember watching and I really like the concept of this type of video. Just in case you’re not familiar with this type of video, a book unhaul is when a BookTuber discusses books that they are going to get rid of because they did not enjoy the book, decided that they will probably never read the book, for various other reasons. These are really great videos to check out because you can get a person’s honest opinion about a book before spending money on it. After watching several videos on a BookTuber’s channel you usually get a good idea of what their personal tastes are, and if you have similar tastes then their opinion of a book will probably match your opinion. The next book that we’re going to talk about is Zoe’s ‘BOOKS I’M TAKING TO COLLEGE’ video, which was uploaded on August 22nd, 2014. Now as every book lover knows, if we could we would literally carry our book collections with us everywhere (and I realize that you can do that with e-books but that’s a different topic for a future blog post). If you are/will be living in an apartment or dorm room in the near future then this is an excellent video for you to check out because honestly it can be hard to leave books at home when you now you’ll be away from them for a while (ok we have to resist using #thestruggleisreal here…must resist…ok we obviously can’t because the struggle really is real).

Now we’re going to discuss Zoe’s ‘MY FICTIONAL BOYFRIENDS TAG’ video, which was uploaded on May 28th, 2015. Now we know we’re all fangirls/fanboys at heart, and because of this we honestly have a very deep emotional connection to our favorite book characters (and because of this so many ships are constantly set loose on the world). This is a really fun video that you will definitely have on replay, and a entertaining tag that you can play by yourself or with friends. The final video that we’re going to talk about is Zoe’s ‘BOOKS I WANT TO BE ADAPTED’ video, which was uploaded on December 30th, 2015 (you can check out the video below). If you love books (and you obviously really do if you’re still reading this post), then you know that you have a list of books that you think deserve a TV and/or film adaption. With the trend of so many of our fav books already getting adaptions, it is very likely that your favorite novel could get a small or big screen adaption some day. I highly recommend this video because Zoe gives a very interesting list that’s full of variety, so you’ll definitely find something you like on this list.

There were A LOT of incredible videos to choose from so I really had a hard time narrowing down this list. I highly suggest that you watch the other videos on this channel because there is a lot of cool stuff on it. The last video that we’re going to talk about is Jordan’s ‘How To Style Suits | Mens Fall/Winter Fashion 2015’, which was uploaded on November 17th, 2015 (you can check out this video below).This is another perfect holiday themed video, for anyone who is going to any Thanksgiving/Christmas themed events, or if you just want to add a little sophistication to your style. If dressing up isn’t your thing, there is a more casual suit look that is the perfect combination of style and comfort. In this video Jordan also tells us all about a subscription service that allows you to customize your own suit even down to the style of buttons on the jacket. How cool is that!?! This is a must see for all fashion fans out there!

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Future Sunsets cover of ‘Rather Be’ by Clean Bandit feat Jess Glynne, which was uploaded September 30th, 2014. I really liked their take on this song, because they kept the upbeat fun vibe that made this song so popular, but also added their own flair that makes this rendition unique. This song was a VERY strong start for Future Sunsets’ YouTube channel, and will definitely make you excited to see more from the band (you check out the video below to find out for yourself). The next video that we’re going to talk about is Future Sunsets’ cover of ‘Bailando’ by Enrique Iglesias, which was uploaded on December 31st, 2014. I thought that this was such a interesting choice for the band, and they were honestly able to pull it off very well. It’s fun to see a band you like take a chance with a song that’s a little different than what they typically do, but equally entertaining. You will definitely play this video over and over, and love it more everytime.

Next up we have Future Sunsets’ cover of ‘Iris’ by Goo Goo Dolls, which was uploaded on March 21st, 2015. This is a song that EVERYONE knows, whether you’re a fan of this genre of music or not. Because of this, there is definitely a added pressure to make an amazing cover, and the band perfectly hits this mark. They are able to not only make a rendition of this classic that is very well done and keeps your attention, but are also able to really make you feel the emotions that the lyrics convey. This cover definitely deserves 5 smiley face (because as I’ve said before, smiley faces are cooler than stars). The last video that we’re going to talk about isn’t a cover, but is a really awesome original song that you just gotta check out! Future Sunsets released the lyric video for their song ‘Without Your Love’ on December 16th, 2014 (you can check out the video below). This is a really cool song that has catchy lyrics, and upbeat vibe, and will instantly hook you as soon as you start to listen to it. It has a lot of the same elements that made fans fall in love with this band, but also show that they are constancy evolving and making their sound even better. I could definitely see them not only seamlessly integrating into mainstream music, but also stand out in such a way that will  make them a cross-genre hit.

Monday Memos: Collins Key…the magician who will leave you spellbound and asking for more

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’, I’m going to help put a little magic into your Monday. Now if for some crazy reason you haven’t heard of 17 year old magician Collins Key, you are definitely missing out. This superstar has taken the magic/illusion industry to a whole new level by finishing in 5th place season 8 of America’s Got Talent, presenting at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, and opening for Demi Lovato on her 2014 ‘Neon Lights Tour’. So now let’s check out some videos that are guaranteed to leave you spellbound. Ready? Let’s go!!!

collins key
The first video that we’re going to talk about is Collins’ 2013 audition for the reality show ‘America’s Got Talent’. For his audition, Collins performed a trick that teleported a dollar bill into a sealed bag of chips. This is a really cool trick that will leave you wondering how he did it (you can check out the video below). Although the trick is awesome, one of the most impressive things about his audition, was how at just 16, Collins already proved that he could compete with the the most seasoned of showmen. The next trick that we’re going to check out is Collins’ performance for the ‘America’s Got Talent’ Vegas Week. This trick consisted of Collins mentally ripping a page out of a book, writing a word on the ripped page, and then teleporting that page into an envelope that a person is seated on. Again, this trick will leave you amazed, and will make you want to see more from Collins. Even though he didn’t win the competition, Collins definitely made his time on ‘America’s Got Talent’ count, and in doing so made us all fall under his spell.

Collins also has a very cool YouTube channel where he posts fun challenges, Q&A videos, and you guessed it, magic tricks. Let’s check out one of their videos right now! In this video, Collins does a trick in which he has a person pick a random card, and then sign the card. Then he does a lot of cool Harry Potter magic stuff, and another card takes a bite out of the random card, and then he finds that bite in the other card (yeah I know it’s a little confusing when I try to explain it, but check out the video below and you’ll see the awesomeness). Also, Collins gets bonus points for included One Direction’s drummer Josh Devine in this video because that’s just really cool! Ok the last video that we’re going to talk about isn’t actually a magic trick video, but is instead a magic trick revelation video. In this one, Collins explains how to do a trick with a scarf and an egg. Y’all should definitely check this one out, because it is guaranteed to freak out your family/friends, and will liven up any party.
