Plane rides are long. They can get boring really easily. And if you’ve ever made the mistake of getting onto a plane without a book in hand, you know what I’m talking about. You need books to make a plane ride enjoyable.
Luckily, I got you covered. You don’t have to be stuck watching the terrible American sitcom pilots, wishing you had something more substantial to keep your brain from wasting away. Instead, you can enjoy some great short books!
See, long books are great and all, but there’s something about short stories and books that leaves you completely enraptured from beginning to end. And an airplane is weirdly the perfect reading spot, too: you’re literally miles above the rest of the world, strapped to a chair, with no distractions except the one year old wailing directly in your ear.
Here are a few short, brilliant books you can easily finish in a plane ride.
DECEMBER IS UPON US. See, my blog even has snow everywhere!! Anyway, before getting into the wonders of December, let us revisit our past: NOVEMBER WAS FREAKIN GREAT. I was really really busy throughout (World Scholar’s Cup, NaNoWriMo, my school’s annual event, tests) but I had a lot of fun!! (It was a terrible blogging month though sorryyyyy)
also i’m sorry for the lack of a october wrap-up but i was in a blogging slump and couldn’t write 😦
Hello, trick-or-treaters, and partygoers, of the internet!
THIS IS HALLOWEEN.* (Well, not yet. But it will be soon enough.) And Halloween = costumes. I don’t know about you, but I think costumes are a great way to wear your fandoms on your sleeve – but sometimes you just don’t feel like going through all the trouble of buying/creating a costume?? So I, in all my helpfulness, have put together a list of book characters you can dress up as for Halloween – and they’re all really easy costumes, too! (Thank me later.)
((Also I just realized this is very hypocritical since my plan for Halloween is staying in and watching scary movies with a friend. Oh well.))
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. 😀
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.
Now, it’s no secret that bookworms are superior creatures that are blessed with many, many talents (like the ability to enjoy reading). Normally, you won’t notice these talents. Of course we’re not going to go around bragging about our ability to identify all cheap bookstores within a five-mile radius. But there are, without a doubt talents that all bookworms possess. Here’s a reminder of what they are.
