Welcome back to Fangirl Friday at a shiny new home!
Lupe’s busy doing a cleaning of her bookshelves, so I’ve basically booted her to the side this week and took over. But she might pop in later and add to Fangirl Friday. 👀👀
Let’s get started because there is a lot.

Ralph’s going to break the internet in this sequel to Wreck-It Ralph. (I’ve been reminded by the interwebs that I broke my own blog while redirecting for a few days…)
“Fahrenheit 451” trailer released
I’ve heard this book floating around, but I never read it myself. And now there’s a move in the works with a trailer that released this week!
I haven’t seen Black Panther yet, Elena has and I am sitting here across the county jealous. It. Will. Happen.

Mulan was supposed to release later this year, but the live-action starring Liu YiFei has been pushed to March 27, 2020.

I got Lupe hooked on Harry Potter last year, and she does not regret that decision.

The game is now available for pre-register on Android, so get ready to cast some spells, make some potions and enter a magical world! (Sorry, Apple.)
Olympic Closing Ceremony
The Olympic Closing Ceremony happened Sunday night! Unfortunately, I was at work, so I’m disappointed I didn’t get to see EXO and CL from 2NE1 perform. 😭 (I’m totally watching their performances on YouTube though…)
