Week In Review

July 30 – August 5

I saw Taylor Swift’s Reputation tour in Toronto on Friday and it was amazing! My best friend and I took the train down the day of and left the next day so it was a bit of a whirlwind, but it was great. Taylor live is amazing. She’s a great performer and the whole experience (visuals and effects, pyrotechnics, her wardrobe, light up bracelets for the audience) was perfect.

If you’re interested, the setlist from the show is here (and is slightly different from the concert she did in Toronto the following night). I particularly liked her mashup of Long Live and New Year’s Day on the piano, as well as her performance of Getaway Car (which is one of my favourites from Reputation). AND she did an acoustic version of Out of the Woods, which was really lovely.

Anyway I’m still getting over the fact that Taylor and I were in the same room, so it will probably take me some time to calm down about it all!

I also became obsessed with doing crosswords on the train ride home, so it’s my new non-bookish hobby.

New books:

OMG I received an e-ARC of Kate Morton’s The Clockmaker’s Daughter!! Thank you Simon & Schuster Canada! I can’t wait to start reading this!

I’m going to listen to some Taylor Swift, finish my book, and enjoy the rest of my long weekend! Happy Sunday!

    I’m glad that the concert was so fun!

    Also I’m super curious about the Clockmaker’s Daughter. I’’ve been hearing about the book so I’m looking forward to reading your review.
