Book Blogger Hop: May 25th | The First Book [& A Puppy!]

Book Blogger Hop: May 25th | The First Book [& A Puppy!]

Due to my previous introductions to this weekly question meme, I feel like I always need to start off with some weird kind of event that’s cropped up in my life. However, apart from picking out my new puppy (he’s so tiny!), not much has actually been happening. Far Cry 5 has been kicking my ass, that’s for sure. Anyway, enough with that, let’s get on with the question. It’s a pretty tough one this week (also, check the end of the post for a photo of my new pup, I like showing him off).

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.

Book Blogger Hop: May 11th | Picking Favourites

Could you ever pick a favourite book or is it like picking a favourite child? ‘Book Blogger Hop’ is hosted by CoffeeAddictedWriter. I swear, I write my answers to these questions each week in the strangest of places. Two Fridays ago I was sitting in a […]

The Unique Blogger Award

The Unique Blogger Award

I honestly can’t even believe that I would be considered to be nominated for The Unique Blogger Award but here we are. Thank you so much to Kara @ Bernard’s Book Blog for nominating me, I still can’t quite wrap my head around it but I appreciate it immensely. Her answers are awesome, by the way, so make sure to stop over at her blog and check out her own post too!

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.

April 2018 Monthly Wrap-Up

April 2018 Monthly Wrap-Up

Thinking about how fast the beginning of the year has gone and that we’re already at the end of March is actually creeping me out a little bit. It’s strange that every year, time seems to go faster because it takes up a lesser portion of our time. Anyway, let’s look at what’s been happening in the month of March!

Book Blogger Hop: April 27th | Author Wrath

Book Blogger Hop: April 27th | Author Wrath

I just want to take a moment to apologise for this week’s Book Blogger Hop answer for being posted late and, as well, I want to provide some additional explanation as to why or why not the following answer may sound like utter nonsense. On Wednesday evening, I was taken to the Emergency Room due to collapsing, heart palpations due to muscle weakness, and I was both blind and deaf. My mother forced me to go to the ER to get it checked out after I was still on the verge of collapse an hour after experiencing a somewhat embarrassing event in which I tripped over a dog cage in the dark.

Book Blogger Hop: April 20th | Review Organisation

Book Blogger Hop: April 20th | Review Organisation

Ah, book reviews. I think it’s safe to say that I’m well versed in that aspect of book blogging (aren’t we all?). However, there’s a lot more that goes into reviewing books than one might think. Turns out that we actually have to make time to sit down and write the review, and not just read our way through our closest bookshop. Because I recently introduced review requests into my own life and schedule, my organisation of ‘books to review’ has shifted rather dramatically.

Book Blogger: Insider Tag

Book Blogger: Insider Tag

I was delighted to see that I had been tagged by the wonderful Kara over on Bernard’s Book Blog to take part in the ‘Book Blogger Insider Tag’. Thank you for being so kind and tagging me! This is actually the first tag that I’ve actually been tagged in – so hopefully that means I’m not doing too terribly in reaching out and being proactive in the book blogging community!

Book Blogger Hop: April 13th | Fictional Towns

Book Blogger Hop: April 13th | Fictional Towns

My mind went all over the place when I read this question. Firstly, I overlooked the clarification of ‘in a book’ and thought of ‘Stars Hollow’ from Gilmore Girls. Damn, how I love Gilmore Girls. I’m going to put that one down to the fact that I am currently rewatching the series and personally highly relate to Rory Gilmore. But, upon rereading the question, I was obviously reminded that Gilmore Girls is a show, not a book, so that answer simply wouldn’t suffice in the slightest.
