Fangirl Friday: Paralympics + iPhone 7


Isn't sad that people pay more attention to the new iPhone than the Paralympics? I think it's sad and personally the Paralympics are WAY better than the iPhone. But you know.... society these days focus on different things than others.

I feel that there isn't much coverage for the Paralympics and there should be! They are just as great as the Olympics. I mean have you seen some of these athletes? I mean they are fantastic at swimming even though they are missing an arm and a leg. Look at me! I can't even swim!

I have so much respect for these Paralympians and it truly makes me smile and cry tears of joy just watching them compete. It's such an inspiration and it's something that we should all see. I encourage you guys to watch the Paralympics! It just started on September 7 so it's not too late to catch up!

Meanwhile..... There's tons of you guys out there who are excited or fascinated by the new iPhone 7. I'm an android user myself and have some remarks about this new technology. I feel like we are running out of ideas. It's such a huge pressure for everyone to spend money each year as they release a new phone model every year. It still looks the same. It still has the same concepts. What's up with getting rid of the AUX cord? Those headphones don't look right. The whole world will lose them as soon as they open the box. They have a new camera, new colors, new home button, it's water resistant, longer battery life, and more memory.

My phone is still working. I have the Note 5 in case you were wondering. No I will not upgrade or go get an iPhone.  The point I'm making here is if you can afford it, go for it. If you can't and you are pressured to get a new phone then don't. Is your phone still working and still capable of taking pictures, texting and calling? If yes, then why do you need a new phone anyway?

But if you want to buy it, it will be released on September 16!

BTW Nintendo will launch a new Mario game for Apple first and not for android? I feel VERY offended here!

Here's more books that have been released on September 6, 2016!

Title: As I Descended
Author: Robin Talley
Synopsis: Maria Lyon and Lily Boiten are their school’s ultimate power couple—even if no one knows it but them.

Only one thing stands between them and their perfect future: campus superstar Delilah Dufrey.

Golden child Delilah is a legend at the exclusive Acheron Academy, and the presumptive winner of the distinguished Cawdor Kingsley Prize. She runs the school, and if she chose, she could blow up Maria and Lily’s whole world with a pointed look, or a carefully placed word.

But what Delilah doesn’t know is that Lily and Maria are willing to do anything—absolutely anything—to make their dreams come true. And the first step is unseating Delilah for the Kingsley Prize. The full scholarship, awarded to Maria, will lock in her attendance at Stanford―and four more years in a shared dorm room with Lily.

Maria and Lily will stop at nothing to ensure their victory—including harnessing the dark power long rumored to be present on the former plantation that houses their school.

But when feuds turn to fatalities, and madness begins to blur the distinction between what’s real and what is imagined, the girls must decide where they draw the line.
From acclaimed author Robin Talley comes a Shakespeare-inspired story of revenge and redemption, where fair is foul, and foul is fair.

Title: And the Trees Crept In
Author: Dawn Kurtagich
Synopsis: A stunning, terrifying novel about a house the color of blood and the two sisters who are trapped there, by The Dead Houseauthor Dawn Kurtagich 

When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt's home, it's immediately clear that the "blood manor" is cursed. The creaking of the house and the stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too--the questions that Silla can't ignore: Who is the beautiful boy that's appeared from the woods? Who is the man that her little sister sees, but no one else? And why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer?

Filled with just as many twists and turns as The Dead House, and with achingly beautiful, chilling language that delivers haunting scenes, AND THE TREES CREPT IN is the perfect follow-up novel for master horror writer Dawn Kurtagich.

Title: Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5)
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Synopsis: The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?
