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).
i'll write you later
Book Blogger Hop
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.
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 […]
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 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.
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.
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.
This is definitely a very relevant question for the state of my blog at the moment as I’ve early recently started putting myself out there and offering book reviews. Not going to lie, I did find myself rather taken aback by the number of messages I received so quick, but this was a good thing! It motivated me further and gave me that sense of purpose. It was quite daunting as I get anxious when contacting new people, but it was a real surprise all the same. Since I’m such an avid reader and endlessly tire my family with how quick I can get through a book, I’m always open to considering new books to read. This means that I find myself accepting book requests when I still have another ten books to get through and read. I’m not sure what my quota is and I have yet to hit it; I’ve got to actually consider how many ‘books to review’ I can handle at one time. Though I hate passing up books because I don’t want to risk missing out on experiencing new talent or a new story.
I suppose my answer to this week’s question depends on what you think classifies as a ‘true’ book club. Do you factor into account online book clubs and groups? Or is it strictly regarding social clubs that meet regularly. The question’s vast (in a good way, of course!) so I’ll answer it the best I can.
‘When meeting with friends, do your discussions usually turn to books?’ This is a fairly tricky one due to the lack of social activity in my personal life. That sounds really lame hear me out, but I recently moved to the other side of the world (rather on my own) so all my contact with my friends is through the internet and other digital means at the moment.
