BookTubeAThon TBR 2015

BookTubeAThon TBR 2015

Next week, it’s BookTubeAThon time!! Ever since Ariel (@ArielBisset) announced this, I have been dying to make my tbr. Because planning is as much fun as the thing itself, right? This year, I wanted to push myself a little further, so I actually started my own BookTube Channel and I must admit.. I’m terrified! I’m editing my video now and well.. I still have to get used to my voice on tape. To make things worse, I’ve been ill for…

Bookish Academy Awards

Bookish Academy Awards

So last night was Oscars night and for the last three years we got up at 2 AM (thank you time difference) to watch the show. But this year, I had to work on Monday (today) so we decided to watch it later, probably tonight.. Last year, there was a book tag called the Bookish Academy Awards, created by Kayla (@bookadooodles) and so I decided to award my favourite books today. Here are the Categories/Questions: Best Actor:  (Best Male Protagonist) Henry…

Blogmas Day 4: the Readers Problems Tag

Blogmas Day 4: the Readers Problems Tag

I thought I’d do a Tag today. This is the Readers Problems Tag and it was created by Tiffany (@AboutToRead). You can watch the original video here. If you decide to do this Tag, let me know so I can go and watch/read your answers. Let’s go! 1. You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next? I pick my reads on a whim. I never plan far ahead, the tbr…

Would you rather…? Book Edition

Would you rather…? Book Edition

I don’t think this tag needs a lot of introduction.. Let’s jump right in! Would you rather… 1. Read only trilogies or stand alones? I know not all trilogies are the same, but most of the time the first book is the best and the rest just isn’t the same.. So I would rather only read stand alones. Then there are more different stories to enjoy. 2. Read only female or male authors? Most of my favourite books were written…

Day and Night booktag

Day and Night booktag

D: Do you read more in the morning or at night? I tend to read a lot in the afternoon and evening 🙂 mornings are too early and nights too dark.. A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things? I think Harry Potter changed a lot for me. Also To Kill a Mockingbird opened my eyes to the fact that no matter what the truth is, some people always get their way. Y: YA or…

7 Deadly Sins of Reading TAG

7 Deadly Sins of Reading TAG

I have a soft spot for TAG videos on YouTube.. I absolutely love them, I could watch them all day long. There was one that caught my eye recently and it’s the Seven Deadly Sins of Reading TAG. It’s not a very long TAG, only eight question long 😉 so I thought I’d answer them here.. GREED What is your most expensive book? I have The Complete Works by William Shakespeare which cost me about € 30.. What is your…

Valentine's day

Valentine's day

I’m not one to really celebrate Valentine’s day seeing as my husband always has to work on that particular evening but I did come across my favourite love poem a couple of days ago. So I thought I’d share it with you. It’s a very well-known poem by e.e. Cummings. I absolutely adore him. His selected poems are on my bookshelf. He has so many amazing poems but this one just always surprises me. It’s perfect… ‘i carry your heart’…

Choose wisely

Choose wisely

I think it’s amazing when people connect over books. Even when it’s 50 Shades of Grey.. I haven’t actually read those so I guess I’m not allowed to be that negative ;).. Yes I know, I know everyone read them, but at that time I had a mountain of other, lesser known books I wanted to read. Maybe one day I’ll read them (probably not though..). But here’s the thing. People who don’t read a lot, suddenly wanted to read…

Intro

Intro

There is this truly awful word. No, wait let me start over.. There are these truly awful words that are used to describe “being stuck whilst writing”. Writer’s block. I hate those words, they sound so final. That’s it, you’re done, it’s over. Me, I don’t suffer from writer’s block, I suffer from laziness. I want to write a book (perferably bookS) but I can’t seem to start. I’ve got stories in my head but never succeed in putting them…
