The Ultimate Book Tag // my first collab (!!)

Hello, people of the internet!

Ah, books. I love them. So does the obsessed girl! And we’ve decided to team up for a collab – which will be my first ever!! I’m super excited for this, collabs are the best part of blogging tbh. She did the 20 Songs Tag over on her blog, it’s pretty funny :))

I’ll be doing the Ultimate Book Tag – it sounds pretty interesting and has to do with books so ?? it’s kind of a no-brainer.

(please let’s start this post already, the awkward intro is killing me)

How To Make A Reader Mad // ft. me spilling all the bookworm secrets

.Hello, readers and non-readers of the internet!

Reading is an extremely dangerous hobby. I mean, not only do we have to deal with physical dangers (like walking into a wall, getting paper cuts, etc. etc.), we also have to cope with several emotional hazards. And I’m not just talking about feels from books – there are some things that Non-Readers™ say that really, really, hurts my feelings.

I’ll be delving into all the things you can say or do to make a reader extremely annoyed/mad: so bookworms, get ready to have all our secrets spilled. Normies, make careful notes so you can plot our downfall.

YA Book Tropes That Are So, So Annoying // please be more original

Hello, fellow bookworms of the internet!

Originality is rare. There are so many books in the world; obviously they’ll have some overlapping features. But you know those things that make you SO FLIPPING MAD every time you see it in a book?? Because you’ve seen it SO MANY FLIPPING TIMES??

I’ll be talking about the cliches which I HATE*. Also, just to be clear, I’m not saying that each and every example of such a trope is terrible. Some books pull it off wonderfully! But others,, don’t. And because it’s more fun to roast things, I’m discussing the bad parts. (I’m so shady.)

*make that “strongly dislike”. hate is a very strong word and I am not a hateful person!! I am a ferocious tiger!!! sorry for clickbait.

A Bookish Wrap-Up for 2017 // end of year book survey!

Hello, fellow bookworms of the internet!

I CANNOT PICK A FAVOURITE BOOK. (I mean I probably can if I think about it long enough but agh just roll with it.) The reason why it’s so hard for me to pick one single book is because 2017 was such a good reading year for me?? I read the most wonderful books of ever and was introduced to contemporary!! A genre I had no interest in before blogging!! But which I now love!!!

Anyway I saw Ilsa do a bookish round up tag thing and decided to do it too!! (Originality.) So I’ll be linking up with Perpetual Page Turner’s 2017 End of Year Book Survey and I’m so so excited to do it!

Hello, people of the internet!

THE TIME HAS COME. After ages of waiting for Christmas to arrive, it’s finally here!

I just adore Christmas in it’s entirety – everything is so soft and beautiful and red and green and white asdfghjjkkllsdhjk it’s amazing.

To all my Jewish friends, I hope you had a great Hanukkah 🙂If you don’t celebrate either, happy holidays!

Harry Potter-themed Christmas Presents For The Potterheads In Your Life // based on their Hogwarts house

Hello, fellow Potterheads of the internet!

Christmas is almost upon us.  And if you’re anything like me, you haven’t brought presents yet. And last minute shopping is a pain, because you don’t know what to buy – unless you have a very handy guide that lists gift ideas based on personality traits 🙂

And what better present than a Harry-Potter themed gift?  Everyone loves Harry Potter. (Probably.) It’s also a great, last-minute, kind of personal gift to give someone for Christmas.

10 Books That You Can Easily Finish On Planes // they’re short, witty, and scary

Hello, bookworms of the internet!

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.

The Stages of Seeing Your Favourite Book Be Adapted for the Screen // WONDER!

Hello, people of the internet!

WONDER RELEASED. You’ve probably heard of the book: it’s about a boy called Auggie who has a rare facial deformity (his face looks unlike others), and when he goes to school for the first time some kids aren’t very,, nice. It’s a great book,  and definitely read it if you haven’t yet. Anyway, this book got turned into a movie! I saw it just yesterday, and it is amazing.

This got me thinking: There are many emotional stages of watching a book being turned into a movie. I’m pretty sure that almost everyone has had that happen to them at one point of their lives. You’re just living your life, when eek! Your favourite book is being adapted on screen!! The world that used to exist only in your imagination will now be performed using lights, cameras, and fancy editing. It has the potential to be amazing: but it could also go terribly wrong.

Having your favourite book adapted is such an emotional time. Here are some of the feelings we go through.

Book characters to dress up as for Halloween! // CANDYYYYY.

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.))

Rediscovering old worlds (a.k.a. why you should re-read books)

guess who’s back from hiatus?? (um. it’s me.)

Hello, people of the internet!

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. 🙂
