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.
i'll write you later
Book Blogger Hop
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
