I decided it was time for me to contribute my very own installment of Fangirl Friday and what better Friday to do it then the day before I go to an event that will set my fangirl mode on overdrive! Tomorrow I get to see Hans Zimmer in concert!
I’m a huge fan of movie and television soundtracks, and Hans Zimmer is one of my very favorite composers! He’s the man behind the soundtracks for The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception. Interstellar, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lion King, Gladiator and Dunkirk! That’s just a small sampling of his work! Seriously, the list goes on and on and on…
In all of my excitement for tomorrow’s concert, I got to thinking about some of my other favorite soundtracks and decided I would share the Spotify playlist that I’ve been carefully curating over the past year or so. But first, here are some of the best of the best from the playlist! I have to say, it was SO HARD for me to cut down this list, there are so many amazing soundtracks out there that I love.
PS – Stay tuned at the end of this post for a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT about Fangirl Friday!
Today’s Fangirl Friday is perfectly timed, since I’m currently bingeing season three of the television show Meredith from Pandora’s Books is here to obsess over! I watched the first two seasons religiously every week when it first came out in 2013 and then somewhere along the way, I fell behind a few episodes and never caught back up. Since the series finale just aired last month, I figured the timing would be perfect to binge watch. There’s so much to love about the show…the drama, the swoons, the WARDROBE and the music. It all comes together to make an addicting and intriguing show. Listen, it may not be totally historically accurate, but it’s still a lot of fun to watch. I’ll let Meredith take it from here…
Today is a VERY special Friday, you guys! Why? Because today is the wonderful Ginger from GReads! birthday!
So what better day to welcome her BACK to the blog (she’s a regular around here these days) on her special day so she can talk about one of her very favorite things in life. For those of us who know Ginger, her name is nearly synonymous with a certain sweet summertime fruit! Ginger has an EPIC collection featuring this fruit and whenever I’m out and about and see something with this on it, it takes everything in me not to buy it for her. She probably already has it anyways! LOL!
Happy Fangirl Friday, everybody! Today’s post from Laura at Scribbles & Wanderlust is a post after my own anglophile heart! Seriously, when I first read this post from Laura I couldn’t help but swoon! There’s nothing I love more than a drama-filled mini-series on BBC or Masterpiece on PBS. Did somebody say Victoria or (sigh) POLDARK!? Unfortunately, there ARE actually some I have missed and that’s why Laura’s post today is so perfect. It’s reminds me that I STILL need to watch the 1995 BBC version of Pride & Prejudice and that FINAL episode of North & South! I’m kind of embarrassed to admit those are still on my to watch list. I will say this, you MUST take Laura’s recommendation and watch Belle…it’s simply amazing!
So, get your Netfix queue ready, because Laura is about to bless us all with some epic British films!
Happy Friday, friends! We’re back after a one-week hiatus thanks to me being a complete flake! Picture it, last Friday night at 9pm, sheer panic grips me as I check my scheduled posts and realized I didn’t have anything ready for the next day. That’s right, your girl totally forgot to schedule last week’s Fangirl Friday, so it’s coming at you right now. A week later, but still epic and amazing!
I’m so excited to be welcoming the fabulous Angie from Read Sleep Repeat. Angie is the pure definition of fangirl! When she loves something, she loves it HARD and I always love seeing her tweets of enthusiasm and love for her favorite things. I have heard SO many amazing things about her Fangirl Friday topic, and her post just gets me even more intrigued. I think it’s finally time for me to dive into the world of “Yuri!!! on Ice”!
I am loving today’s installment of Fangirl Friday you guys! Just a little back story before we jump into the fabulous post from Jess at Literary, etc., I was a HUGE fan of Jim Morrison back in high school and college…like, obsessed! I still love music from The Doors, but my fangirl mode over Jim Morrison was on overdrive in my teens and early 20s. I had posters of him in my bedroom, watched the movie on my VCR about a million and one times, and even used the date of his death as my ATM pin code…morbid much! Needless today, as I read through Jess’ post I was hit with a serious case of nostalgia. So thank you, Jess, for bringing back those feels from one of my very first fangirl experiences!
By now you should all know what time it is here at What Sarah Read…it’s Fangirl Friday! A feature that is near and dear to my heart since I am a huge fangirl myself of SO MANY things…most recently, the new Wonder Woman movie! I love welcoming my friends to the blog every Friday so they can fangirl about their own faves.
Today, I’m welcoming Morgan from The Bookish Beagle as the Fangirl Friday guest poster and I’m so happy to have her back! You may recall Morgan’s epic Fangirl Friday postfrom a couple of years ago all about her love for the animated show, Adventure Time. This is still one of my all-time favorite posts from my Fangirl Friday feature. Morgan’s love for the show is evident and her enthusiasm in sharing that love in her post is exactly what Fangirl Friday is all about! Needless to say, her post today is just as amazing and, personally, I’m totally fangirling over it!
After a short hiatus for my Blogger Bucket Listfeature last week, Fangirl Friday is BACK! I’m so excited to be welcoming Megan from Book Birds as she shares a post that means so much to her. I really appreciate the time she took to pull together such a thoughtful and informative list to share with us today. One of the things I love so much about this feature is that it introduces so many of us to new things. Megan’s post today is a perfect example of how Fangirl Friday is not only a way for us to share what we love with other people, but also a way for us to learn about something outside of our own little world.
Ok, everybody! Grab your notebooks, pull up Goodreads and get a nice stiff drink because have we got an epic Fangirl Friday for you! I’ve got Mary from Mary Had a Little Book Blog guest posting and she is sharing the mother all of all book recommendations post! seriously, she’s got so many amazing recommendations that will keep you reading for a VERY long time. Bottom line? If you’re a fan of the swoony sports romance, then today’s post is just for you!
I am SO excited to be bringing you this week’s installment of Fangirl Friday! I’m welcoming Jane from It’s Jane Lindsey to the blog today so she can talk about her favorite television show. I was a huge fan of this show and watched it religiously. Then…I just stopped. Not sure why but for some reason I fell behind shortly in to season three and never got caught up. I keep meaning to get back into it and never seem to find the time. Because like any good fangirl I’m currently watching a million other shows, including my third re-watch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In any case, after reading Jane’s Fangirl Friday post today, I am now more excited than ever to jump back into this amazing show.
Hi everyone! Thanks so much to Sarah for having me on your blog today! I love any excuse to fangirl, so I’m very excited to be a part of Fangirl Friday this week.
I’m not one to stick with TV shows. I’ll usually get a season in, and then my interest wanes. I don’t have the attention span to wait for a new episode each week or survive breaks between seasons. But there is one TV show that I’ve watched consistently for three years now, and that I love like nothing else. Today, I’m talking about The 100.
