Fierce Fangirl Friday – Concerts, Cover Reveal & more

Welcome back to another Fierce Fangirl Friday hosted by yours truly 😉

FFF gives you the opportunity to do some healthy fangirling on your blog!

Whenever you have something, anything to fangirl about – whether it be a book, TV show, music, celebrities, your pet, the universe, finding your soulmate or just a recent meal that you’ve had – Fierce Fangirl Friday is your opportunity to do so! It doesn’t matter if it’s a recent obsession of yours or something you’ve been loving for a while!

Here’s a link to my original Fierce Fangirl Friday post!

All I ask is that you pingback to me basically, just copy the link of any of my FFF posts and use it in your own FFF post when tagging me! That way I won’t miss anyone’s post! 🙂


As you might know (if you’ve read my Top 5 Wednesday post), I went to a Little Mix concert last night!!! 😍

It’s already like 6pm and actually, I meant to write this post when I came back from the concert last night but I was so tired and exhausted and hungry and I physically couldn’t bring myself to write it.

And I told myself to write it first thing in the morning but my friend texted me at like 11:50 talking about an assignment that was due at NOON and I was so freakin’ stressed out!!!! I literally pulled the assignment out of my ass and submitted it like 3 hours later and I am PRAYING that I won’t get killed or like kicked out of the class or something LOL.

BUT YEAH. TIME TO FANGIRL!!!

omg how precious do the girls look!!!

I’ve been a fan of Little Mix ever since they were those sweet and innocent souls on X-Factor UK and they’ve turned into these stunning, fierce and confident ladies that make me feel so empowered and strong #WHOGOTTHEPOWER and I’m in love with them!

I’ve seen the girls for the first time last year and me and my sister were SOOOOOO close to the front and it genuinely was one of the best days of my life.

This year, we decided not to go to the venue too early because we were #lazy and #tired but we ended up getting pretty good seats anyway! (It was all GA I guess that’s how y’all call it in America? But you could basically choose if and where you wanted to sit or stand which was really cool!)

Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t allow me to upload videos SO I CAN’T SHOW YOU THE FANTASTIC QUALITY OF MY BELOVED CAMERA (it literally saves my life at every concert, the quality is just ON POINT) but let me show y’all some pictures one (1) picture! (They’re such high quality they take ages to upload/save/share so here’s ONE lol but YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT MY VIDEOS LOOK LIKE FROM THIS PHOTO QUALITY RIGHT??????

Little Mix

If you follow me on Twitter, you can see my Snapchat story from the concert which I’ve just uploaded!

But it was such a fabulous show (not as good as the one last year but still great) and the girls are SO funny and cute and sassy and fierce – ohmigosh how fitting…*Fierce* Fangirl Friday!!!

OH. ALSO…

The Vamps were the support act which was really cool! I proper fancy Brad Simpson aka the lead singer/front man *heart eyes* and after seeing him in concert… well, let’s just say my love for him has grown even more!

He’s such a charming fella and he was so CUTE when he was talking to the crowd and then he got really into it while performing and he was so passionate and a rock star and I was shooketh.

Brad

YAY!

My fangirling this week wasn’t AS extreme as last week when I talked about the new Shatter Me books but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t equally as happy and excited about this concert! I guess I’m just spent and exhausted and I need a day to catch up on sleep and everything.

I totally used this Gif for Mandy 😛

PS. This morning I also ordered tickets to see Banks and I am SO HAPPY!!!!!! I’ve been a fan of her for so long and I’ve never seen her live before but now I will! And the show is a day after my birthday, how cool!

You should totaly go and see her if you can!!!!!

PPS. DID YOU SEE THE COVER REVEAL FOR WHICHWOOD AKA QUEEN TAHEREH MAFI’S COMPANION NOVEL TO FURTHERMORE BECAUSE MY EYES HAVE BEEN BLESSED. SEE FOR YOURSELVES:

B E A U T I F U L

PPPS. I still haven’t checked out the whole linky thing because I’m #lazy but what I’ll do is link up everyone’s posts by hand in a sort of recap thingy!

So, here’s a recap from last week’s Fierce Fangirl Friday:

FierceFangirlFriday

Can you believe that when I introduced this meme last Friday, we already had two lovely participants??? I was so happy when I saw that! 😀 😀 😀

Make sure to check out both of their posts because they were so awesome to read!!! 🙂


Now, I think that’s enough of talking from me so ONTO THE FANGIRLING!!!!!!!

Alright guys, I know that this was announced like 3 weeks ago but I guess I was just looking for another excuse to talk about Shatter Me 😛

If you’ve been living under a ROCK, you might have missed this but…………

TAHEREH MAFI ANNOUNCED THAT THERE WILL BE 3 MORE BOOKS IN THE SHATTER ME TRILOGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The following quotes were all taken from Tahereh Mafi’s EW interview!

It feels like I’ve been waiting for this announcement all my life. Literally.

If you don’t know this, I am literally OBSESSED with the Shatter Me trilogy – they’re my favourite books of all time, my favourite characters of all time, Tahereh Mafi is my favourite author of all time……. I THINK YOU GET IT, YEAH?!

And I loved the ending of Ignite Me! It is so iconic and sometimes I just reread it over and over again.

But I’ve always wanted something more after Ignite Me like I just needed an epilogue that told us something about Warnette’s future (LIKE A WEDDING AND KIDS PLS) and I thought maybe Tahereh was one day going to write some sort of epilogue or at least a short novella!

BUT NOW… OH BOY, THIS IS THE BEST THING THAT’S EVER HAPPENED TO ME. NOT EVEN KIDDING.

We are literally getting 3!!! MORE!!! BOOKS!!!

THERE WILL BE 3 MORE BOOKS IN MY FAVOURITE SERIES EVER!!! WHAT A BLESSING ❤

The fourth novel will be called Restore Me and it takes place 2 weeks after Ignite Me ends and I’m just so damn excited for it!!!

“Juliette ended the last series in charge of Sector 45. What’s in store for her now?

–  “A great deal of heartache. She has no idea what she’s gotten herself into.”

WHAT THE FUCK TAHEREH DON’T MESS WITH ME WHAT KIND OF HEARACHE EXCUSE ME DO I LOOK LIKE I CAN HANDLE THIS IF YOU HURT ANY OF MY CHILDREN I SWEAR TO GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“A little surprise for the readers: Restore Me will be told from the dual POVs of Juliette and Warner. Readers who’ve read Warner’s novella, Destroy Mewill understand how distinct his voice is from Juliette’s, and how his perspective can provide a much-needed balance to Juliette’s interior world. It was really interesting — and, I think, critical to the book — to do a deep dive into their very different minds.”

TOLD FROM DUAL POVS! JULIETTE! AND WARNER! WE WILL GET TO SEE THINGS FROM WARNER’S POV! I AM ALREADY YELLING! AND DYING!

I literally use this Gif every time I talk about anything Shatter Me related LOL IT REPRESENTS ME

“At the end of Ignite Me, Juliette’s story had only just begun. I saw very clearly then what the next steps in her journey had to be, and I was suddenly anxious to bring the world back to life.”

YES TAHEREH YOU KNOW IT!!!

Juliette Ferrars thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she’s got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?

The synopsis KILLS ME. Like I’m still not okay with the heartache part but WHEN TRAGEDY HITS???????? EXCUSE ME???????? DON’T HURT MY PRECIOUS CHILDREN PLEASE AND THANK YOU!!!

Gosh. I have too many emotions about this announcement. It’s been 3 weeks and I’m still not done fangirling 😛

If you’re reading this now, dear reader, please know that these books are for you. Thank you, thank you, for your excitement, your thousands of emails, your heartfelt messages, your general enthusiasm — and for following Juliette’s journey all these years. I can’t wait for you to read part four in the Shatter Me series!”

I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU. Tahereh is literally the sweetest and most precious person EVER. ❤

I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I will get to read 3 BOOKS about my all time favourite characters!!!! Ahhhhhhh! Best. News. Ever.

Restore Me is coming out on March 6th 2018 WHICH IS STILL AGES AWAY *cries*

But at least, it’s less than a year away lol 😛

I could write a whole new paragraph about the little teasers that Tahereh has given us on Twitter but this post is long enough so I might do that in another Fierce Fangirl Friday post! 😀

At last……… here’s a Gif of Hunter Par- *cough* I mean, Aaron Warner.

HE’S SO FUCKING PERFECT

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Feel free to link up your own Fierce Fangirl Friday posts below!

I think what I will do is add the links by hand for now until I’ve figured out how to do the link-up thingys! If anyone has any experience with that, PLEASE HELP ME!!! 😀

Thanks for reading and see you next week for some more fangirling!!!

Buttonnnn

Is anyone else as excited for the new Shatter Me books as me? Who’s your favourite character in the series? Do you have any theories for what will happen in the next books? Let’s chat in the comments!

Fierce Fangirl Friday – NEW FEATURE LAUNCH

MY NEW EXCLUSIVE WEEKLY MEME IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!

Welcome to my very first Fierce Fangirl Friday! 🙂

Fierce Fangirl Friday is a weekly meme hosted by YOURS TRULY *puffs out chest* where you have the opportunity to do some healthy fangirling on your blog!

If you’re a fangirl you might be familiar with the feeling of getting overly excited about things, forgetting all about grammar and punctuation and suddenly starting to write in all caps when geeking out over something that you love dearly!

So, whenever you have something, anything to fangirl about – whether it be a book, TV show, music, celebrities, your pet, the universe, finding your soulmate or just a recent meal that you’ve had – Fierce Fangirl Friday is your opportunity to do so! 

It doesn’t matter if it’s a recent obsession of yours or something you’ve been loving for a while!

All I ask of you is that you PINGBACK to me! Basically, just copy the link of any of my FFF posts and use it in your Fierce Fangirl Friday posts when tagging me! 🙂 That way I won’t miss anyone’s posts!!!

You are free to do this weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or simply whenever you feel like you need to fangirl about something 😀 

I will also have a linky thing at the end of every Friday’s post where people can link-up their posts so everyone can do some blog-hopping! 😀 I have decided to do a weekly recap instead where I showcase everyone’s posts in my newest FFF post!

This meme is happening on Fridays but if you can’t make a Friday, DON’T WORRY! Just do it whenever you can!!!!

I’d just like to take this moment to thank one of my bestest blogger friends I’ve made on here: Bella @ A Bookish Belle ❤️ She has been enduring my ramblings, questions and insecurities about this meme, she has helped me come up with different name ideas and just generally reassured me that it’s a cool idea and that my graphic looks nice and just calmed my nervous and insecure mind. If you guys aren’t following her, go do that right now! She’s total Warnette trash like me and she has converted me to Feysand trash! And she is my literal Fangirl partner in crime! 💜

And if you’re wondering: “Jackie, what exactly does fangirling even mean?”

WELL! I feel like the Urban Dictionary definition is quite accurate! :’)

fangirling:

1. the reaction a fangirl has to any mention or sighting of the object of her “affection”. These reactions include shortness of breath, fainting, highpitched noises, shaking, fierce headhaking as if in the midst of a seizure, wet panties, endless blog posts, etc.

2. a gathering of two or more fangirls in which they proceed to waste endless amounts of time ogling, discussing/arguing, stalking, etc. the object of their “affection” 

If you have experienced any of the “symptoms” mentioned above, Fierce Fangirl Friday is the meme for you!!! 😀

If you have any more unanswered questions, feel free to comment them down below!


NOW ONTO THE FANGIRLING PART (oh wow this is going to be my favourite part of every week!!!!!)

FierceFangirlFriday
Feel free to use this graphic in your posts!!!

HARRY STYLES RELEASED HIS NEW ALBUM TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s self-titled so it’s literally Harry Styles by Harry Styles. Iconic.

It’s my sister’s birthday today so I bought her the Vinyl! And the CD is for myself 😛

Obviously, as a former #1 One Direction fan from back in the days, all of the boys still have a special place in my heart. But I’ve just been particularly excited for Harry’s new music because his taste in music is so great and I knew his music would be really damn great as well.

I looovvveeee music from the 80’s, like that typical Rock ‘N Roll kind of music – David Bowie, Prince – I’M OBSESSED! And Harry’s new album is totally inspired by the 80’s while still being his own thing and I absolutely love it!!!!

And yes, I did stay up until midnight to hear HARRY STYLES by Harry Styles (I’ll never get tired of saying that!!!!) with my other dear Twitter friends and it was SO DAMN COOL. I still have my One Direction Twitter account with like 14K followers which I use quite regularly.

I always feel like Hannah Montana when switching between my book Twitter and my I-love-Harry-Styles Twitter account hahaha! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

But if anyone wants to follow me on there and see me freak out over Harry, leave me a comment 😛

ANYWAY. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MASTERPIECE OF AN ALBUM, SHALL WE?

There is not a single song that I don’t like!!!! I might be biased because I’ve loved Harry for like 7 YEARS lol BUT THEY’RE ALL SO GOOD!

Sign of the Times was SUCH A GOOD DEBUT SINGLE – I swear the whole world was in love with it. And then he released Sweet Creature AND IT WAS SUCH A CUTE AND ADORABLE LIL SONG IT ALWAYS MADE ME SMILE AND GRIN AND FEEL ALL HAPPY AND GIDDY!!!!

But now that I’ve heard the whole album…… Boy, oh boy.

My top 2 are definitely Woman and From the Dining Table. ❤

Woman is such a classic rock song (it’s also a Snapchat filter!!!) and I LOVE JAMMING OUT TO IT. AND BOTH ONLY ANGEL AND KIWI ARE ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE REALLY COOL ROCK SONGS!!!! I LOVE!!!!! 😀

From the Dining Table makes me cry EVERY. DAMN. TIME. Something about it just hits me right in the feels and I start sobbing. And it’s TOTALLY A SONG THAT COULD BE PLAYED IN ONE OF THOSE TYPICAL ROMANTIC COMEDIES – BRIDGET JONES, NOTTING HILL, LOVE ACTUALLY – I’M SO HERE FOR IT!!!!!

And I still can’t believe the album is actually HERE! We’ve been anticipating it for so long and then it was April and Harry announced his new single and album and TOUR.

APROPOS TOUR.

I WILL BE SEEING MY BOY HARRY IN OCTOBER!!!!!!!! I WAS ONE OF THOSE LUCKY 111,379 PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WHO GOT TICKETS TO ONE OF HIS SHOWS!

AND GUESS FUCKING WHAT! THE SHOW IS 2 DAYS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY. 2 DAYS. WHAT. IS THAT NOT A REALLY FREAKIN’ GREAT PRESENT LIKE HARRY REALLY DID THAT.

Yes. Anyway. Enough freaking out for now.

Listen to the album if you’re into 80’s classic rock/pop, or just really want to hear some good music 😛


That’s it for Fierce Fangirl Friday today! I really, really hope you enjoy this meme and have fun with it! And make sure to spread the word! I hope as many people as possible participate in this! FANGIRLS (and fanboys as well!) UNITE!!!!! 😀

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT SO FAR! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, SUGGESTIONS, PROBLEMS LET ME KNOW! 😀

So, feel free to join in next week! I’m so excited to see what everyone else will be fangirling about!

Thanks for reading!

Buttonnnn

New Feature – one last choice to make! (answer the poll) (please) (*puppy eyes*)

Hey everyone!

I just need you to answer this quick poll to help me decide on a name for my new blog feature/segment/meme! 😀

I have decided that I will turn it into a weekly meme! You guys have been so sweet and supportive and a lot of you have said that they would love to participate in this! And it makes me super happy to hear that! 😀 😀 😀

(If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I am starting a new segment! Check out my post to know the basic idea of it!)

You guys have been suggesting Jackie Fangirls Fridays or Jackie’s Fangirl Fridays which I LOVE!!!! ❤ I have been brainstorming with my lovely friend Isabella who is literally my FANGIRL PARTNER IN CRIME (<3) and we came up with Fierce Fangirl Friday and Fangirl Feels Friday. 

Sooooo all I need from you now is to decide which name to pick! 🙂

 

I literally have everything ready for this meme EXCEPT FOR THE NAME! I’m sooo indecisive and I need it to be perfect lol so choose whichever you like best! And if you have two favourites, feel free to comment them down below!

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR LOVELY AND KIND WORDS! I CAN’T WAIT TO START THIS WHOLE THING ON FRIDAY!!!!!! 😀 😀

Buttonnnn

Announcement: New Feature/Segment (but I need your help!!!)

First of all, HOW COOL IS THAT GRAPHIC WITH THE EMOJIS THAT I MADE LOL THAT IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE EMOJIS TO USE!!!!! 😀 😀 😀


IT’S TIME…………………………….

As promised, I am bringing you A NEW ORIGINAL SEGMENT/FEATURE OF MINE!!!! AHHHHHH!!! ❤

Alright, before I reveal anything, let’s dive into a little bit of backstory here;

Ever since I created my blog, maybe even before that, I knew that I wanted to have an original meme/segment/tag WHATEVER of my own but my super uncreative mind just couldn’t come up with something.

Last week, I was quite busy and I was thinking about the million things I still had to do for uni, my blog, life lol and I was scheduling and organising things in my head………. and then it just HIT ME. Like a brick.

Jackie Fangirls.

That name just randomly popped into my head and it stuck there for a while.

So I was thinking: “HEY! This totally reflects me and my personality!” I DO love some healthy fangirling 😀 I tend to get overly excited about (A LOT) of things. I start writing in all caps and use 500 different emojis to express my feelings and emotions. 

So I thought why not turn this into a weekly segment/meme/feature (I don’t know what to call this)! 😀

Whenever I have something, anything to fangirl about, I will post about it! This doesn’t always have to do with books – you can fangirl about TV shows, music, celebrities, a recent meal you had, ANYTHING!

I think it’s a really cool idea!!!!! 😀

But…….. THIS IS WHERE YOU GUYS COME IN!!!!!!

 

QUESTION: Which name do you like better Jackie Fangirls or Fangirl Friday?

 

Jackie Fangirls makes it more personal and I won’t be constricted to post on a certain day in the week! 

Fangirl Friday sounds a lot more neutral/universal and I could turn this into a weekly thing where YOU GUYS can join in! Kind of like a meme! 😀

So tell me which name you like better because I can’t decide! 😀

 

SECOND QUESTION: Would anyone be interested if I actually turned this into a (weekly) feature? Where other bloggers can join? That one would definitely be called Fangirl Friday then to make it more universal 😛

 

And this would be a weekly or bi-weekly, monthly, whenever-you-feel-like-you-need-to-fangirl-about-something thing where everyone just fangirls about whatever they want to fangirl about!

(I will post a more “official” description of this meme, explaining the “rules” or guidelines in my next post if people are actually interested in it.)

So, please tell me if you’d be interested!!! 🙂


And I feel like I have to mention this – I googled “Fangirl Friday” and I’ve seen some people who made this a thing on their blogs, each had a different interpretation of what their own Fangirl Friday is. Pretty much all of the posts I’ve seen were from a couple years ago (like 2013) and their blogs are now abandoned. I don’t want to be accused of being a copy-cat because I literally just googled it like half an hour ago and I had no idea that this existed.

SO would you suggest that I call this Jackie Fangirls just so I’m in the clear??? Or is Fangirl Fridays alright??? Since it’s been abandonded by most of the other bloggers??? And I could like “revive” it?! I’m so insecure and nervous about this lol sorry for asking all these questions 😛

Anyway, that’s it for the announcement for now! Pleeeaasssseeee help me decide by answering my questions! 

My first “Fangirl-post” (depending on what name I will decide upon) will be up on Friday (including an official description, graphics and all…).

Thank you for reading!

Buttonnnn

If you’ve already forgotten what the questions were: Which name do you like better JACKIE FANGIRLS or FANGIRL FRIDAY? And would you be interested if I turned this into a weekly features where YOU can join in? That one would have to be called Fangirl Friday then. What about the “copying” thing? Let’s chat in the comments!
