The Happies!

CqPNbQSUsAAuAT_

Happy Friday! I had an idea to do occasional weekly rounds-up of things I’ve done this week and things I’ve seen on the internet that made me smile. Just something that you can look at on the internet that’s guaranteed to be 100% positive. Until I can think of a better name, I want to call this little post The Happies!

Even though I’m an avid reader, I’ve never read a book that made me cry. Nope, not even The Fault in Our Stars, until I read THIS. The Sun is Also A Star. Omg. It’s a love story about a Jamaican-American girl and a Korean-American boy, and the day they spend together before she’s in danger of being deported. Could easily read in one sitting. Loved it.

On my book channel, I did ANOTHER book haul (insert DJ Khalid soundbite), of books I’ve collected this summer. I already buy too many books as it is, and I really need to go on a book buying break really soon.

This Marvel author made female athletes into superheroes, and I’m seriously trying to figure out where I can buy the ones of Simone Biles, Simone Manuel, Misty Copeland and Serena Williams!


Speaking of Simone Biles, I definitely ship her and Zac Efron, if for nothing else but the cute factor. The blush after he kissed her cheek? So cute!!

Have you seen this trailer for Hidden Figures, the movie about the four Black ladies who helped launch astronaut John Glenn into space? I can’t wait to see this!

What was your first AOL Screename? Read the comments under this tweet and see if it was any more embarrassing than these.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Next weekend is my mom’s birthday, Rob and my anniversary, and another exciting thing that I’ll try to fill y’all in on next week. What do y’all have planned and what nice things did y’all see on the internet? Let me know in the comments down below!

It’s important to have a little faith for things that are seemingly out of your reach. Even if what you see looks too hard or bleak, always believe that miracles CAN (and do!) happen. I wear this bracelet from @authoredadornments to remind me of that! ✨#tistheseason
