Teenagers are usually very easy to please, we just want our phone, our space and our wifi. This time of year it’s even easier. As much as it might seem like a pain to buy for us, we usually don’t want anything except what is the latest trend. It’s simple, buy me what everyone wants or has and I’ll be happy.
However, today (Friday 12th December), it takes even less to make us happy. To put it simply, today is a day when we receive gifts from the people we love. Going out on a limb here I am going to say that nearly 80% of all teenagers have either read the Harry Potter series or listened to 5 Seconds of Summer. Some are like me and are in love with them both.
If you have even a mild interest in either, you’re in luck. If you completely obsess over one or both, then your world has just been complete. Today marks the day of the release of 5 Seconds of Summer’s latest album (yeah these albums are just dropping like flies, I love it!!!) and the first short story in the Harry Potter collection.
Livesos is the highly original (note the sarcasm) title of the album that has been released by 5 Seconds of Summer today. Incidentally, it is an album full of fan favourites played live by 5sos, hence the name. This is a perfect Christmas idea for all the teens who are in love with the Aussie band.
A few days ago, JK Rowling, world renowned author of the Harry Potter series, sent word that she would be releasing one short story a day from the 12th- 24th of December. These short stories would be centred around all the untold stories of the Harry Potter series. I know this doesn’t sound like such a big deal, but to every single Potterhead in the world, this is massive news.
I’ll write reviews for both the Livesos and Harry Potter short story once I have listened and read them both.
