Spread the Word Sunday : On My Block

*Spread the Word Sunday is a meme hosted by The Tattered Page to announce some sort of book related news or cause.*

Hey Bookies!

This is a completely non-book related post, but I have to share this marvelous Netflix discovery:

On My Block, co-created by Lauren Iungerich (creator of Awkward) and Eddie Gonzalez & Jeremy Haft, is a coming of age comedy about four bright, funny and street-savvy friends find their lifelong friendship tested as they navigate their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high-school set in a rough inner city Los Angeles neighborhood.

Here's the trailer:

- Sierra Capri as Monse Finnie
-Diego Tinoco as Cesar Diaz
-Jason Genao as Ruben "Ruby" Martinez
-Brett Gray as Jamal Turner

Although the show is considered a comedy, it is about 4 young adults trying to navigate life in a gritty Los Angeles existence while their lifelong long is put to the test. Central ideas include gangs, a scavenger hunt for the mythical neighborhood treasure from a heist in the '80s, first love, deportation and more.

Jamal Turner's character is HILARIOUS! And I sympathize with him on so many levels. I had a feeling if there were a quiz out there to find out which On the Block Character you are, my result would be his character.

Low and behold, there is such a quiz. Thanks to the all glorious Buzzfeed

Here is my result:

Let me not forget to mention the music! On My Block's soundtrack was fire. I have a playlist dedicated to songs from the show. Here it is:




EYE FOR AN EYE - SiDizen King & The Strike



ELECTRIC - Alina Baraz ft. Khalid

BOTTLE ROCKET - Kovas ft. Domo Genesis


2 - H.E.R.

BLOOD ON ME - Sampha

RUNNER - Kevin Abstract

LEVELS - Tattoo Money

And I have to say -- I am utterly obsessed with the Monse and Cesar ship! I need them to stay together. Forever. Find a life together outside of their block -- pun intended ;) A better life. Monse a famous writer, Cesar a successful architect. Get married. Have beautiful babies. And have holiday visits with the "fam". 

I need them to be another rare couple that lasts through the TV show's running. Like Nathan Scott and Haley James. Forever and Always #TeamNaley!

I need there to be a Ride or Die Team Monsar!
