February/March favorites: Journaling, quotes and books!

Thursday, April 19, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

Hello guys!
This favorites blog post will be the combination of the last two months' (this month's favorites will be coming soon), since I didn't have time to really do anything besides getting better (anxiety+ulcer are not a good combination...) and trying to make some advancements with my thesis (which is a serious stress source for me).
This time, we'll have a bit of a change with books, some nice music, quotes and musicals!I want to say thank you, to everyone who commented on the last post, those who sent me private DMs on Instagram/Twitter (they were quite a few to my surprise!) and for the retweets and shares. Your positive and amazing feedback was such a big help for me to continue to do what I love and what I've always loved doing all along 😃 .
Keep the suggestions coming! 😊

And now, let's get right into it:
  1. Journey (category: app): I've always kept a diary, especially after I learned English. My favorite language ever + my love for writing and expressing myself, pushed me to start writing at a young age. I've always kept a little notebook with me, to use as a journal whenever I've felt the need to do so. And now, I have my journal with me, as long as I have my phone (which is pretty much 24/7 😊). The app is simple to use, has a very simple and elegant design. It syncs with Google Drive and is free to use. There's a pro/paid option which unlocks more features. But you can do all the basics with the free one. I have been using it for a little over 2 years now ☺.
  2. This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith (category: books (YA contemporary)):
    I'm still reading this book, with my crowded schedule for university and my reading slump which I'm trying to overcome, I couldn't finish it sooner.
    Jennifer's books are so lighthearted, simple and so fun to read. They have amazing stories and are mostly realistic. This book is no exception. In short, this book is about two teens (a guy and a girl) who accidentally meet online via email. The guy makes a mistake in the email address and it goes to the girl, who responds, and they start talking and they become friends. Despite the guy being a teen movie star and her being an average normal girl, the story is very realistic and it depicts real struggles. It's well written and I can't wait to finish it.
    Maybe I'll even review it on my book blog, who knows 😉.
  3. ePrestigio Reader (category: app):
    This is a free e-book reading app. It supports ePub, Mobi, PDF and much more. I've been using it for the past year and a half and I love it.
    What I love most about it, is the ability to open e-books directly from Onedrive or Google Drive without having to have the e-book on your phone's memory (If you choose to open an e-book from Onedrive, for example, it'll download it so you can read it easily and have all the functions, and once you're done with it, you can delete it and it'll still be on Onedrive).
    It has other functionalities, like themes for the app, themes for reading, a small e-book store and the ability to sync your progress via an account.
  4. Manga Rock (category: app):
    This is one of my all time apps. It is a free manga reading app with so many resources. You make an account in 2 minutes and then you're set to go, your downloads, favorites and reading progress will all be synced. You can of course use it as a guest (without signing up). The app is well designed and is constantly updated with new bug fixes and new content. I definitely recommend it if you're a manga reader/fan 😊.
  5. Whispers of The Heart (category: anime movie (Studio Ghibli)):
    Studio Ghibli makes some of the best animation movies I've ever seen. Amazing lessons and beautifully written and told stories. This movie is no exception. This is not the first movie I've seen (I'm watching them in order of their release dates), but it is the one I watched this past month.
    The story is about a middle school girl, who loves reading books so much and an aspiring writer. In a family that doesn't ever tell her what she should do with her time, or talk to her about her future, she struggles to find who she is and what she truly wants to do with her life.
    This is an amazing and realistic story that so many of us can relate to. One of my all time favorite movies for sure 💜.
  6. Bonus: Quote:
    Being the best is great, you're the number one. Being unique is greater, you're the only one.
That's it for the past two months! I hope you found something for you in here, maybe a new useful app, a movie to watch or even just some positivity to brighten up your day 😃.
Let me know if you have any favorites recently and/or if you have any suggestions.
See you soon for this month's favorites 😉.
Stay safe and always be humble, sweets~
