Last weekend I reached a new level of adulting – I organised one of my bookshelves according to their colours and I enjoyed it! I also started getting my fix literary meth in the form of a five-book YA fantasy series,A Court of Thorns and Roses. It’s been on the best selling lists for ages and I thought why not? It took me a few pages to get into it but then I was hooked. I’m on the second much longer book and haven’t read it on a school night yet because I know I will stay up the whole night reading it and then will have to go to work tired AF (I did this like 10 years ago when I first discovered the Twilight series). Speaking of Twilight – Kindle now has a setting where you can set your book cover as the lock screen. So no more hiding what you are reading, even if it is trashy vampire romance.
Who remembers Fyre Fest? The greatest festival that never was… It’s an insane yet true story about a luxury music festival that was anything but. There are two amazing documentaries (Netflix’s Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened and Hulu’s Fyre Fraud) that you just HAVE to watch. While there are many pearlers (how far would someone go for their company?) the best has to be the infamous gourmet sandwich tweet. The “author” is selling the tweet as an NFT. JaRule (involved in creating the fest) is also selling the oil painted logo as an NFT.
