Fangirl Friday: Fantastic Beasts, Power Rangers + Book Releases

It's that time of year again where I'm feeling a bit stressed out about trying to figure out how to manage my personal, family, work, and school life. It's both a pain and a struggle but I'm slowly finding some balance right now. That's too much sadness for me to think about. Let's discuss about the cool new things that was released this week!

I am not sure whether to be scared or excited for the upcoming Power Rangers movie since I legit grew up watching these guys on VHS. That clearly shows how old I really am. Yes, VHS was still around in the early 2000s.

From seeing this trailer below, I had so many mixed feelings about this that I don't even know how to explain. The graphics looked cool and all but I think I'm just not getting a good feeling about the performances of these actors. Well, I guess I'll have to go check out the movie once it premieres on March 24, 2017.

Did you guys hear that this upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie is only the first out of five movies?!
The first movie haven't been released yet! Guess these people know how much of a success this film will be. YAY for more movies in the Wizarding World! Go check out the film yourself once it hits to a theater near you on November 18, 2016!

These books were released on October 11!

Title: The Midnight Star (The Young Elites #3)
Author: Marie Lu
Synopsis: The thrilling finale to the New York Times bestselling Young Elites series from “hit factory” Marie Lu.

There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.

Adelina Amouteru is done suffering. She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory. Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest her cruelty only grows. The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all that she’s achieved.

Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds when a new danger appears, putting not only Adelina at risk, but every Elite and the very world they live in. In order to save herself and preserve her empire, Adelina and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest—though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.

Bestselling author Marie Lu concludes Adelina's story with this haunting and hypnotizing final installment to the Young Elites series. 

Title: Frost
Author: M.P. Kozlowsky
Synopsis: Being human is her greatest strength.

Sixteen-year-old Frost understands why she’s spent her entire life in an abandoned apartment building. The ruined streets below are hunting grounds for rogue robots and Eaters.

She understands why she’s never met a human besides her father. She even understands why he forbids her to look for medicine for her dying pet. But the thing is, it’s not her real father giving the orders…

It’s his memories.

Before he died, Frost’s father uploaded his consciousness into their robot servant. But the technology malfunctioned, and now her father fades in and out. So when Frost learns that there might be medicine on the other side of the ravaged city, she embarks on a dangerous journey to save the one living creature she loves.

With only a robot as a companion, Frost must face terrors of all sorts, from outrunning the vicious Eaters…to talking to the first boy she’s ever set eyes on. But can a girl who’s only seen the world through books and dusty windows survive on her own? Or will her first journey from home be her last?

Title: My Unscripted Life
Author: Lauren Morrill
Synopsis: Sometimes love stories go off script.

Another sultry Georgia summer is about to get a lot hotter. Dee Wilkie is still licking her wounds after getting rejected by the precollege fine arts program of her dreams. But if she'd gone away, she wouldn't have been around to say yes to an unbelievable opportunity: working on the set of a movie filming in her small Southern town that just happens to be starring Milo Ritter, the famous pop star Dee (along with the rest of the world) has had a crush since eighth grade.

It's not like Dee will be sharing any screen time with Milo—she's just a lowly PA. And Milo is so disappointingly rude that Dee is eager to stay far away from him. Except after a few chance meetings, she begins to wonder if just maybe there's a reason for his offensive attitude, and if there's more to Milo than his good looks and above-it-all Hollywood pedigree. Can a relationship with a guy like Milo ever work out for a girl like Dee? Never say never. . .
