Books I Aim To Read This Month (August 2017)

Hello, people of the internet!

Today’s post will be short and sweet as I have lots of posts planned for this week in order to make up for my absence since the beginning of August. This includes me attending book events, book reviews and a mini book haul.

But let’s start off this month with the books I aim to read this month! Continue reading “Books I Aim To Read This Month (August 2017)”

What Was That Book?

Hello, people of the internet!

Have you ever read a book long ago, but you can’t remember what it was called or who wrote it, so you can’t find it?

I have. I have three books I read ages ago, remember vaguely about the cover and the plot, but I can’t find out what they are. I have googled them, but it’s just as useful as trying to find the name and composer of classical music.

So, I thought, “Why not write a post about it? Maybe someone out there feels the same way or may even know which books I’m talking about?”

Here are the three books I want to find, but can’t. Continue reading “What Was That Book?”

My Friday Thoughts – My Holiday Reading Experience

Hello, people of the internet!

I’ve been on holiday this week. It was a last minute decision and I went with one of my best friends to the Greek island of Kos. As you would probably expect (as I am an avid reader), I took a few books with me.

I spent a lot of time by the pool getting a tan (and sunburnt) and reading. It was very relaxing, but I noticed a few things that I thought would be fun to discuss.

Here they are! Continue reading “My Friday Thoughts – My Holiday Reading Experience”

My Friday Thoughts – #ReaderProblems

Hello, people of the internet!

I can safely say for the majority of my life, I’ve been a pretty avid reader. Of course, that means I have had my fair share of reader problems. However, they’re technically not problems – heck, I have problems with concentrating and understanding what I read, so that should be on this list. Instead, they’re problems along the lines of “I am a reader, and so these things happen to me quite a bit and I wonder if other readers have encountered them as well”. I hope it’s a somewhat comical post (I can’t promise you that it is), but I thought it would be a great idea if I told you my #ReaderProblems and, who knows, maybe you know what it’s like?

Without further ado, here are my five, personal #ReaderProblems!

(Why on earth did I make it into a bleeding hashtag? Well it’s too late now, I already edited the logo…) Continue reading “My Friday Thoughts – #ReaderProblems”

My Friday Thoughts – Should Book Reviews Talk About Spoilers?

Hello, people of the internet!

Whenever I look up reviews about books I am interested in, I tend to find two types of reviews: ones that talk about spoilers and ones that dare not even mention them. They are both equally good reviews, but it does leave me wondering this:

Should book reviews talk about spoilers?

Here is what I think! Continue reading “My Friday Thoughts – Should Book Reviews Talk About Spoilers?”

Books vs Film Adaptations: Should They Even Be Compared?

Hello, people of the internet!

Today, I feel like discussing something. Not just anything, but something that I have been thinking about for quite a while.

Many films are adaptations from books and so they are compared to one another, often with the thought that the books are better than the films.

But what gets me thinking is this: should they even be compared in the first place?

Spoiler alerts for Coraline (heck, I’ve been talking about this story for a while…) and The Lovely Bones. Continue reading “Books vs Film Adaptations: Should They Even Be Compared?”
