Ballerinas, Shakespeare, and Bollywood | Spotlight Saturday #2

Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner, dedicated to spotlighting and pinpointing some of the things over the week that have caught my attention more than usual, things I’ve particularly loved, etc.

 
Dear Silanur @ AloofBooks,

You rock. 

That is all.

Seriously, Silanur’s posts are the most fun, heartfelt gems and she includes so much passion in her writing. PLUS SHE IS SO SWEET OH MY GOODNESS.

  
Alexandra @ Twirling Pages brings us through the average ballet class AND features a lovely little ballet book. When you love reading and you love ballet, there’s nothing better than a delightful combination the two.

Cait @ Paper Fury shares some predictions for the YA Genre in 2016. They’re all wonderfully different and diverse, a joy to read like all of Cait’s posts!

Carolyn @ A Hundred a Thousand Stories gives the discussion I’ve been waiting for. A discussion asking what’s the big deal with likeable characters anyway?   

Josie @ Josie’s Book Corner starts the new year off right with her first Spiritual Sunday post. It’s full of so much hope and positivity, I’m going to be looking forward to these posts every Sunday!

So I’m currently reading Lux: Beginnings by Jennifer L. Armentrout. All I can say is writing a review for this book is going to be very…fun. 

Be sure to look out for that one 🙂

 The start of school brings a (very, very, very, very, very) few good things with it. Among them being the end of my drama troupe’s hiatus. This can only mean Shakespeare and improv, a scrumptious combination fabulous enough to make it onto this week’s spotlighted moment. 

Currently I’m rehearsing a scene from As You Like It in which I, Rosalind, obsess over Orlando. Essentially, it’s like every scene Rosalind is in. It’s quite fun though, especially because Rosalind is so dramatic and full of passion, it’s a joy to act!

 
Whoops…None for this week.

Any suggestions, chums?  

   
 
   After re-watching (only for the third time, I’ve got plenty more ahead of me) the movie Queen I was reminded of the pure Bollywood magic of this song. Brings out the inner Rajkumari inside of me. 

Also, watch this movie for a life-changing experience and a good time! Even if you’re not a big fan of Bollywood (if this is the case, why and what is wrong with you?) you will enjoy this fantastical goodness.  

  

This.

What are your spotlights this week? Any favorite bloggers (Me, obviously.), blog posts, or songs of the week?
