So, if you follow me on Twitter (#self-promo) then you’ll know that I’ve sunk into the dark hole that is the fandom of Shadowhunters. And I’m about to drag you down with me. (Hopefully; it’s kind of lonely here and I need some friends.)
First off: what is this show and why should you care? Well, it’s a TV adaptation of The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (one of my favourite book series), and you should care because it’s actually really good and not a disgrace to the books (like the *cough* movies *cough*).
Autumn is here: and you know what that means? Conventions. There are loads of Comic Cons happening right around this time, and fangirls all throughout the world are excited. Comic Con is great! One of my favourite events of all time.It’s hosted by Eventbrite, which is this great platform through which you can register and promote your events. Pretty simple, too!
So I, being the extremely helpful person that I am, decided to put together a list of tips for any beginner con-goer. Again, you’re welcome.
(also the featured image is my comic book collection isn’t it awesomeeee.)
September was a busy month. I had my midterms, I had a couple parties to attend, I made new online friends (and apparently I live in the same city as some of them!), I got like three more plot bunnies, and I wrote a lot.
It was fun! And because I did so much interesting stuff, I’m going to put it all together in a blog post. 😀
i’m an emotional wreck dear lord somebody help me.
Hello, people of the internet!
So, I mentioned in my monthly wrap-up that I bought Lord of Shadows and was really excited to read it: well, I finally did. And it was just so good! It made me cry (a lot), made me laugh (not as much as crying, but still a lot), and it made me squeal (like, for almost every page).
I did not expect this from the book. Not that it’s a bad thing! It was great. I loved it. (Except the ending because oh my gods my heart is still damaged???) But there’s so much to talk about – I have a bunch of predictions and theories I’ll be sharing below, after my review. (Oh yeah, spoiler alert.)
Humans love familiarity. And re-reading books – going back to visit worlds that you love – fills you with warmth and fuzziness and nostalgia of all the jokes, thefts, and occasional murders that have taken place there.
But there’s a lot more reasons – reasons that I have conveniently put together in a list for you guys. You’re welcome, and hopefully you’ll be convinced by the end of this post that re-reading is good for you, and not a waste of time. 🙂
I know, I know. “ARIS HOW COULD YOU DO THIS YOU’RE HARMING THE POOR BOOKS OHM YG GODS????” Chill. It’s not a big deal! I’m pretty sure a lot of people dog ear books… right? Right?!
I’m pretty sure that there are lots of so-called bookmark users that secretly dog-ear their books but don’t let anyone see because they don’t want people to judge them. Don’t do that. Wear your dog-ears on your sleeve! (???)
To be completely honest, I find people who use bookworms really weird. Like, not in a bad way, just… how??? How the hell do you manage to manage your bookmarks???*
So here are some things that the usual dog-earer would like to ask a person who uses bookmarks. Not trying to dis any bookmark lovers, but it had to be said!
*I don’t think this sentence exactly makes sense… and I’m not sure if I care.
I’ve never done a monthly recap before so let’s just see how this goes?? Bare with me, please.
Hello, people of the internet!
Oh my god my first wrap-up post I am so excited let’s do this.
August was a pretty busy month for me. I participated in the Scribbler’s Challenge (hosted by the amazingMay), did a bunch of extra-curricular activities for school, read around six books… good enough, overall.
It’s raining literally 24/7 where I am which is great because now I have an excuse to not go out now I can stay at home, and curl up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. (Never forget the hot chocolate.)
On rainy days, there are specific kinds of book you feel like reading – books that’ll make you cry, that’ll make you think, that’ll help you relax. I made a little list of the books that would be perfect for rainy weather because #qualitycontent.
Book covers link to Goodreads pages, as per usual 🙂
So I was lucky enough to be nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award! This is exciting because it’s my third award!!! Thank you to the amazing Dani @ Perspective of a Writer – she’s a wonderful blogger who loves K-drama and books (unusual combination, but she makes it work!). It’s always amazing conversing with her in the comments about different books. 😀
I’ll be discussing how I started my blog, and some advice for new bloggers!
So, I recently finished Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist – and realised that the past few books I read all had something to do with music. So, I had the brilliant idea of making a (play) list of all books I’d read which had something to do with music/playlists. Which, come to think of it, is a lot of books. Huh.
I guess it’s because both music and books tell stories – and because there’s a story for every occasion. Sad, happy, or romantic*.
*ok that went deep.
(Also, all book covers link to their Goodreads pages. You’re welcome.)
