On Sunday, July 29th, I was lucky enough to go to the launch party for the pop-up exhibit titled That’s From Disneyland! This is a free event and auction of one of the world’s largest private Disneyland memorabilia collections. Taking over the space of an old Sport’s Authority in Sherman Oaks, owner of the collection Richard Kraft is using this month-long event as a sort of goodbye to his precious collection that he accumulated over the last 25 years.

An Ode to My Favorite Place: Powell’s City of Books
Powell’s Books is the largest independent bookstore in the world. There is a total of five locations, spread out the city of Portland, Oregon. The main location is the size of an entire city block with nine color-coded rooms and over 3,500 different sections. It’s also my favorite place in the world, next to Disneyland.

Summer Book Series Vol. 2
I LOVE travel YA books: road trips, trips abroad, even just the short little escape a few hours away from home. I live vicariously through these characters because I’ve never had the luxury to go on these kind of trips. Most of these type of books are set during the summer because what time is more alluring than the three months that make up a summer vacation. The sun stays out longer, the heat burning your skin as you travel through unknown territory—it just screams adventure and possibility. So! Here are a few of my favorite YA Summer Travel Recommendations:
Eighth Grade and the Genius of Bo Burnham
Bo Burnham is one of my all-time favorite comedians. A friend of mine in college played me some of his songs and I was instantly hooked. I couldn’t believe someone just under a year older than me could make such smart and relatable comedy. He completely rock my world.

THIS BOOK! Morgan Matson’s writing is just getting better and better. Her newest novel, Save the Date, takes place over a weekend in April, centering around a boisterous and semi-famous family.
Summer Book Series Vol. 1
For the next two months, I’m going to try to only read books that have to do with summer or take place in the summertime. I did this last year as well and really enjoyed it. I thought that I would make a few different posts throughout this summer, highlighting some of my favorite summer books.

Monthly Entertainment Recap
Hello! Pop culture and entertainment rule my life. I decided that it would be fun to do a little recap of all the media I consumed each month:
Songs From My Adolescence: The Middle School Years
Last week I did a post about my favorite bands during my middle school years (roughly ’01-’04). While I was compiling that list, I came across so many songs from random bands that I had to make a second post. I really wanted to focus on random songs that I really loved during this time, even if I wasn’t a big fan of that particular band or album—so none of these songs are from any of my top albums from last post. I hope you enjoy!

Hearts Beat Loud
When I first saw the trailer of Hearts Beat Loud, I knew I would enjoy it. I just didn’t know I was going to love it as much as I did. A music-centric coming-of-age story centered around a father and daughter.
