Oh, good lord, this is another week that has been fairly hectic in both good and bad ways. I want to say that it’s all gone smoothly after we picked up Arlo (if you recall that grumpy pup from a few weeks back) and, whilst he’s been an adorable menace who is my entire world, there have been a few bumps in the road. Therefore, this week’s answer will go into my personal life as well and give you a general update. Though the question is a fairly personal one so I think it fits.
This book is one that had been on my ‘to be read’ list for quite some time so, upon finally seeing the novel in my local book warehouse, I was excited to get my hands on a copy and get ready it as soon as possible. From just the blurb of the book, it’s evident that the narrative is focused around an interesting, complex, and yet original premise that catches the attention of the person reading it and makes them want to explore it to a further extent. With a story that stands out so much, it’s no surprise that the book has gotten a lot of positive attention – and I’m here to only add to that further.
his week seems to have gone incredibly fast. It feels like I was only posted the last week’s BBH answer the other day, but I’ve somewhat been getting caught up in things (mental health wise) so apologies if I’ve been scarce. Good news though is that we’re going to pick up Arlo tomorrow!
More on that later though, as this is an excellent question.
The title of this book is the main thing that first caught my attention due to the fact that it’s such a common and yet misinterpreted phase. My mind instantly went to the thought of ‘there’s no normal’, and I was quick to judge the book before actually getting more information about its plot and premise. However, after looking into the rough narrative of the book, I felt that it was one that deserved a shot, even if the title slightly made me hesitant in reading it. Once again, my hesitation could’ve prevented me from experiencing this incredible read.
Whilst this is an excellent question, I have no clue where to even begin. Throughout the past two years, I’ve really been able to get back into my reading after having graduated college and it’s definitely become an element of my self-care as I fell into a pretty dark place. Therefore, I’ve been getting through books like no tomorrow these past two years, and I don’t think I can necessarily pinpoint an author that I know I’ve read the most.
I was completely taken off guard by this book. I was really skirting around this book just due to the fact that the look of it didn’t grab my attention. I don’t know why I thought the book wouldn’t be suited to me, but, whenever I found myself in a bookshop with the novel sitting on the shelf in front of me, I’d turn away. However, this changed when I actually took the time to read the blurb of the book and completely felt like kicking my own ass for overlooking it. So, naturally, I made sure to grab a copy as soon as I was able to so that I finally could experience this book I was eyeing and wondering about for so long.
Good things, I would hope. Haha, bad joke – sorry. Wow, okay, this is somewhat of an odd question because I’ve also been considering it a lot lately in terms of what I want my blog to be focused around and what type of messages I want to get out there. This blog is still very new, I’m still getting familiar with the whole blogging game, and, with life getting in the way, I have had a few set backs in trying to get things up and running. In a sense, I don’t even know what direction I want my blog to ‘officially take’, which says quite a bit about other elements of my life as well.
Jeez, can you believe that we’re half-way through the year already? I start every wrap-up with seemingly reflecting on how fast life is passing, but it’s really going by too quick. In some aspects, that’s a good thing I suppose, though it also somewhat sucks as things tend to get a bit hectic around here. The blog lacked this month, and for that I apologise, though let’s see what’s been happening.
Lately, it seems that this book has been all the rage – I’ve been spotting it featured on recommended lists across an array of different literature sites and book blogs and I’ve seen the mass of positive reviews pour in. As more and more people continuously provided good feedback on the first installation of this new series, I knew that I had to grab the book when I saw it during a trip to a local bookstore. I had skimmed the blurb previously, though, admittedly, I went into reading without knowing much about the plot at all – I hadn’t even known what the genre actually was. Needless to say, I was incredibly caught off-guard and endlessly impressed.
