Book Blogger Hop: May 18th | Adaptation Regrets

Book Blogger Hop: May 18th | Adaptation Regrets

Now, as an avid reader with an extended diploma in Creative Media Production, you would think I’d have a variety of good answers to this question. However, I do not. I also think that may be due to the fact that this day has somewhat got away from me and so I am rushing this answer, so I may just not be able to pinpoint any examples. That being said, I do have a few feelings about certain film adaptations and, in general, I am hesitant to approach book-to-film adaptations with high expectations.

Reader Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Series – Jenny Han

Reader Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Series – Jenny Han

I was firstly introduced to this series when looking for books to read to complete the categories featured in Book Riot’s ‘Read Harder 2018’. After seeing the series on a number of recommended lists, and even though the series and the premise didn’t really grab my attention, I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt because I truly had seen a lot of good things being said about it. That being said, I picked up the first book and finished it the next day – so I think that speaks for itself.

Reader Review: Always And Forever, Lara Jean – Jenny Han

Reader Review: Always And Forever, Lara Jean – Jenny Han

I knew that I was going to read this book after finishing off the previous two in the series and reviewing them in a fairly good light. Therefore, it only made sense for me to grab a hold of a copy of the last book and give it a give it the read that I think it deserved, even if I still maintain that the genre and storyline isn’t the type of thing that I would usually find myself leaning towards.

The Importance Of Writing For Yourself, Even Though It’s Hard

The Importance Of Writing For Yourself, Even Though It’s Hard

Any writer – no matter how big or small, published or unpublished – is going to tell you that they either love writing or they hate it. Hell, most of them are probably going to have a love-hate relationship with the skill itself and, in turn, this has bred the stereotypical tropes that society associates with writers themselves.

Reader Review: Queen Of Corona – Ro Esterhazy

Reader Review: Queen Of Corona – Ro Esterhazy

I was emailed a while ago by Ro Esterhazy asking if I would be interested in completing a review of her book Queen Of Corona’. Thinking that the premise of the novel sounded interesting and wanting to expand my own reading preferences to explore more new authors, I happily accepted her request and added her book to my ‘to be read’ list.

Reader Review: The Loneliest Girl In The Universe – Lauren James

Reader Review: The Loneliest Girl In The Universe – Lauren James

Despite seeing this book throughout numerous bookstore trips and knowing that it had good reviews, I was still hesitant to purchase it due to the fact that the premise didn’t necessarily stand out to me. I thought the idea was good, but I thought that it could – potentially – get boring because how can you make a riveting story out of it? Though I grabbed a copy for the hell of it after seeing it recommended yet again and, now, that I’ve finished the book, let me tell you that boy, I was wrong as hell in my hesitation.

Book Blogger Hop: May 4th | Can Books Better You?

Book Blogger Hop: May 4th | Can Books Better You?

Okay, before I dive right into this question, I want to make a quick note: I am somewhat a bit high due to being put on new medication. Whilst I can still coherently type, the answer to this question may not be as lengthy or in-depth as my usual responses during the previous few weeks of partaking in ‘Book Blogger Hop’. Also, it’s strange to think that, this time last week, I was still in the hospital and, whilst things are looking alright at the moment and I haven’t needed to be admitted again, I’d just like to thank everybody who took the time and consideration to wish me well. I really do appreciate it and I haven’t yet had time to respond to everybody, but I love you all. Also, May the 4th be with you! Happy Star Wars day – which I completely forgot was actually today until I got an email about it. Oh well.

I was recently offered the opportunity to read and review Candace Wondrak’s book ‘A Mark Unwilling’ and, as well as this, I was actually able to get the chance to chat with the author herself in regards to her experience as a writer, how she fills her spare time, and what words of inspiration and motivation she holds dear to her writing trade.
