SBBC Session 2 and How To Become Obsessed With A Band

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve finished your books because it’s time for session 2 of SBBC! Let’s get into the books:

Cinder- Marissa Meyer

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

The Knife of Never Letting Go- Patrick Ness
Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief- Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse—Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld  and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

If I Stay
Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?

Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it's the only one that matters.

How To Become A Fan of a Band/Artist

Recently, I’ve become OBSESSED with many bands and singers.  *starts singing Hallelujah by P!ATD* So today, I’m going to teach you all how to become a band fangirl/fanboy. I’ll be using Fall Out Boy as my example.

STEP 1: Discover the band

While scrolling through Spotify, Pandora, or flipping through stations on the radio, you may come across a song from this band.

Ex: *le me flipping through radio stations* SO LIGHT EM UP UP UP LIGHT EM UP UP UP LIGHT EM UP UP UP I’M ON FIYAHHHHH

Me: “This is a cool song!” *pulls out phone* Siri, what song is this?

Siri: This is ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark by Fall Out Boy.”

Me: “Hmm, Fall Out Boy, sounds cool! I should look them up.”

STEP 2: Finding the music

So now that you’ve discovered them, you’ve searched them up on Spotify and now you’re jamming out to their songs.

“DANCE DANCE, WE’RE FALLING APART TO HALFFTIMMEEEE”
“I SAID I. DON’T. CARE WHAT YOU THINK”
“WHAT A CATCCHHHHHHH”
“REMEMBER ME FOR CENTURIESSS”

And now you’re obsessed with the music, now you gotta get obsessed with the band.

STEP 3: Learning about the band

Now that you’ve found the band and listened to their music, you find yourself looking them up on Google.

*me on the computer, googles FOB* “Okay cool, so the lead singer is Patrick Stump. Aww, he looks adorable. The bassist is Pete Wentz, ooh he’s kinda cute, andddd he’s 37, never mind. The drummer is Andy Hurley, he looks awesome. And the guitarist is Joe Trohman, nice hair dude.”

And then you look them up on Wikipedia.

“NOOO POOR 2005 PETE. He had some sick guyliner though. And Patrick was so cute, how dare people be mean to him for being fat. Andy totally put the band together, that’s awesome! AND JOE STARTED THE WHOLE THING, GOOD FOR HIM.”
“WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE. Folie a Deux is an AMAZING ALBUM.”

And then you end up looking at the band members, that’s when you get obsessed.

STEP 4: Becoming fully obsessed

Now, you find yourself constantly watching interviews on Youtube, jamming out to all their songs, all the time and spending all your time making your room a shrine to them. You also see yourself having arguments such as these on various band forums:
"OKAY ANDY HURLEY DOES NOT GET ENOUGH CREDIT. He is an amazing drummer with so much talent. EVERYONE ONLY KNOW PETE AND PATRICK. (Don’t get me wrong, I love them.) BUT ANDY AND JOE ARE AMAZING. WITHOUT THEM, FOB WOULDN’T BE FOB. Your argument is invalid."
Your room is now a shrine to the band, you have several band t-shirts and merch and now you’re stuck in a fandom void.
Hey, don’t blame me, you got yourself into this.
Oh what’s that song? Tear In My Heart by Twenty One Pilots? NOT THIS AGAIN.

I hope you enjoyed this little post and GET READING! If you have a review on any of the books that we read last session, leave the link in the comments and I’ll check it out!
