What Book Made You Into A Reader?

booktalkheader

This is a question I think I saw randomly either scrolling through blog posts or blog post ideas. Either way, it’s a question that has stuck with me ever since I read it. I wish I was better at keeping track of things or I would link to wherever I read this question. But for those of you who know me…I don’t keep track of anything in my life. Ever. Fatal flaw? Perhaps. We are yet to find out. I’ll get back to you guys on that.

Back to the goal of this post and what I am also challenging you guys to do! I challenge you to figure out the book that made you into a reader! What book or series did it? I plan on tagging some people directly I think would have a lot of fun with this at the end maybe. But any book blogger reading this, should definitely take part and link back to me so I can find it and read (part of) what brought you into the magical world of books.

So what book made me into a bookworm?

Disney’s New Movie Moana

So recently I went out with some friends for dinner and a movie during Christmas break. Seniors in high school prepping ourselves for university. What else would we go to see but Disney’s latest movie Moana.
Suffice to say, our introduction to the newest ‘princess’ did not disappoint. I think it was the most beautiful thing ever and by far the best movie to kick off 2017 with. jeremy-renner Continue reading “Disney’s New Movie Moana”

My Diagnosis – And Why It Means Something

Diagnosis. What comes with mental health. The label they give you to explain what’s wrong with your brain. Why your thoughts just aren’t quite right. There are so many ways to look at it, and when I reread that line it sounds more like a negative way. I’m a pessimist and it seems more like a fact. But that’s not the full story. It never is.

Must Own Books That I Don’t Own

16143347

This book did things to my head. Sadly I can’t say I own it because I read it via ebook. I have a feeling though it’s one of those I wouldn’t mind having on my bookshelf just as a reminder of what books put me through.
For my review on this book: Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

This one is all Michelle’s fault. Colleen Hoover is not an author to be trifled with and her books are doing mean things to my head. I’m mentally preparing myself for the impact of It Ends With us.
Review: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

 

The naturals

YES YES A THOUSAND TIMES YES. I miss this book, it’s been so long since I’ve ranted about it and the next book is supposed to come out soon! In fact I haven’t even completed the review on it. Hmm maybe I should buy it and reread as a decent excuse for the review?

A recent read and one that captivated my heart and mind in so many ways.  I need this in person for the same reason we all do. To feel that connection. photo2-12

Okay…so I’m slightly fibbing with this one. I have Throne of Glass, Heir of Fire and from Maas’ other series, A Court Of Mist And Fury. However I do not own the rest of the two series! It’s rude and uncomfortable.

 

The sad part to all of this? My bookshelf is small and overcrowded already. I have no room to place more books and yet I am still acquiring them. To sum it up? I’m screwed. And my room is doomed to be a bookish mess even when I leave for university.

What are your current must have books that you don’t own?
Or are ebooks enough?
Thoughts?
Tell me about it!

Until next time,

Tasks Of A Lazy Day

Lazy days are important!

As  I get closer to ever impending adulthood the fact that  I’m supposed to adult more often settles in a bit too. With that I realize; I really won’t get lazy days, or rather the opportunity for them, nearly as often. This brings me to what I believe must be partaken in so that a lazy day is used to its fullest.

So that list… giphy3 Continue reading “Tasks Of A Lazy Day”

Book Turnoffs

Here it is. All those things that make you fall in love with books? Forget about ’em. How about what makes you walk away. Throw the book? Hide it in your closet to never be touched or read again? Here are some of my book turnoffs that have made me do just that.  Continue reading “Book Turnoffs”

Styles of the Kardashians

role-models

What can I say, a young teenager and even I can see role models and their effects on the rest of the population. I’ll be honest here first; I’ve never really kept track of the Kardashians and their show at all. I saw absolutely no reason too. The show seemed pointless, brain numbing and frankly, I would much rather watch some Criminal Minds or Anime.
Of course, that doesn’t mean I can avoid hearing about this famous family on social media, on tv, everywhere. I don’t watch them and yet they are able to appear in my life. Is that a good thing?  Continue reading “Styles of the Kardashians”

Reading A Book By Its Cover

Age old saying that for some reason people relate to other people. I do not get why. Oh yea, that’s right because it doesn’t work with books.

I mean, guys you can tell me not to read a book by its cover all you want, but when I go into Chapters, it will be the first thing that catches my eye sweet heart. Too bad so sad, it is a basic part of being human, we go to what attracts are attention. I have certain kinds of books that do that really well for me and caught me like none other when I first found them. Usually, I can get a pretty sweet read out of it too.

For example: 13084206_1046260402133408_917569392_n Continue reading “Reading A Book By Its Cover”

Bora Bora

Dream and dream big, one of my many life mottos. In particular, travelling the world is one of those dreams on the very top of my list. I’m nowhere near rich, but somehow someday I’m going to get that done and that’s what this new series of posts is all about.

Bora Bora
Island in French Polynesia
Bora Bora is a small South Pacific island northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia. Surrounded by sand-fringed motus (islets) and a turquoise lagoon protected by a coral reef, it’s known for its scuba diving. It’s also a popular luxury resort destination where some guest bungalows are perched over the water on stilts. At the island’s center rises 727m Mt. Otemanu, a dormant volcano.
