The bookish rant and rave tag

Good morning! It’s been a hot minute since I last posted here, but I wanted to take a nice break and truly rest for the holidays after the absolute hell that this year has been. Still, I’m back on here today, with another Bookending Winter post! Bookending Winter is a book blogging event run by Clo and Sam, in which different bloggers host a couple of prompts each during the month of December. Anyone who wants to participate can register on the announcement post, make 3 (or more) posts during the event, and link them up on the challenge spreadsheet so others can find them easily! Today’s prompt is an original tag written by Sumedha @ the wordy habitat! I’m really late in doing it, but I really like the prompt, so I couldn’t let this post sit in my drafts even if I missed the official prompt day! Prompt Explanation : Use this tag to dump your thoughts on books which you’d like to talk more about but usually don’t. Time to really rave …

Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag – 2020 edition

I’ve been away for a while and kind of neglected most of my obligations during June – exams and covid will do that to you – but I’m back with the Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag!  I’ve wanted to do this post for some time and actually had it scheduled for the middle of last month, but since I couldn’t find the time to write it then, let’s do this now! The prompts Here are the questions I used, if you like me, haven’t written this post yet even though you meant to and want to reuse them! What is the best book you’ve read so far in 2020? What is the best sequel you’ve read so far in 2020? What’s a new release you haven’t read yet, but really want to? What’s your most anticipated release for the second half of this year? What was your biggest reading disappointment of the year so far?  What was your biggest reading surprise of the year so far? What’s our favorite new author of these first 6 months …

Stay at home book tag !

I saw this tag on Louise @ Foxes and fairy tales‘s blog, and thought the questions and book recommendations were really cute ! It was created as a booktube tag by Madison Mary on her channel Princess of paperback – you can check out her super fun video about it ! Laying in bed : what is a book you could / have read in one day ? Out of all my recent reads, I think the one I read the fastest was The loneliest girl in the universe. It’s a short YA sci-fi novel of less than 300 pages, which is why it took me so little time to finish – you can see my review of it in this book review post ! Snacking : what is a guilty pleasure book ? Definitely the Harry Potter series. I don’t appreciate the author that much, and stay away from her social media accounts (honestly, every time I see her name trending it’s because she tweeted / said / wrote something bad again, so, no …

Animal crossing New Horizons Book tag !

I’m in self-isolation for the next 10 to 15 days, at least, so I have nothing better to do than read, play video games, and write blog posts…. and so far, I’ve read 3 books, played a ton of hours of Stardew valley, despaired over my lack of a Nintendo Switch to play the new Animal Crossing game, and… written 0.5 blog posts. I even procrastinated by doing sports. But I’ve been tagged in this super cute Animal Crossing book tag by Kristina at Books and dachshunds, and I think that’s the perfect thing to get me back to writing about books ! New Villagers : New-to-you author you’d wanna read soon Hafsah Faizal ! I heard a lot of good thinks about her debut, We hunt the flame, and she announced her second novel, We free the stars, for spring 2021 – I’m really excited to get my hands on a copy of the first one ! Dodo Airlines : Book that made you travel to other part(s) of the world Is space a …

WWW Wednesdays #2

WWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted on Taking on a world of words, and it is a short recap of three regular reading questions : What are you currently reading ? What did you recently finish ? What do you think you’ll start reading next ? I’ve been pretty lazy this past week and haven’t made as much progress as I hoped on my TBR, but I’m not giving up ! Here’s an overview of these past few days : What are you currently reading I’m in the middle of Rage becomes her, by Soraya Chemaly, and and e-ARC of Tweet Cute, by Emma Lord. I tried to get into tweet cute but didn’t feel like it recently, so I stopped at around 30% and switched to Rage becomes her, hoping I’ll be able to get back to the first novel when I’m done with that. Also, I made a spelling error in my IG post and I’m too lazy to correct it. Sue me. What did you recently finish I recently finished reading Girl, …

WWW Wednesdays #1

WWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted on Taking on a world of words, and it is a short recap of three regular reading questions : What are you currently reading ? What did you recently finish ? What do you think you’ll start reading next ? This past week has been pretty good in terms of reading – I haven’t been keeping up properly with my blogtober posts because it’s exam week (or, more appropriately, exam weeks, plural) but that hasn’t stopped me from reading ! The fact that I have to spend at least 1 hour in the metro every day helps a lot with that too… So here’s my recap ! What are you currently reading I’m currently making my way through an e-ARC of Everything isn’t terrible, by Kathleen Smith, and it’s taking me some time because I want to properly pay attention to 100% of the content (and there’s a lot!). What did you recently finish I recently finished reading an ARC of Only Mostly Devastated, by Sophie Gonzalez – I’ll …

Inside and out book tag

I’ve had a very productive day today : I applied to 5 job postings, had a business phone call for 20+ minutes and faced my mother for a full hour before running away and hiding in a Starbucks with my laptop and 2 grande coffee frappuchinos. Which means : I’m feeling extra lazy tonight, haven’t done any grocery shopping, and am distracting myself with a book tag instead of writing my planned post for today. So here goes the Inside and out book tag ! I first saw it on Morgana’s blog (which is awesome, by the way). 1. Inside flap/Back of the book summaries: Too much info? Or not enough? I love reading what’s inside the flaps and on the back of the book before I buy/borrow something. If there isn’t enough information, I’ll probably open the Goodreads app and check the book info on it before deciding what to do – those summaries save me a lot of time and effort. If it’s clearly something I do or don’t like, I’ll be able …

Autumn tag !

I’ve been gone for a while – the end of the summer was pretty rough for me and I needed to focus on the most urgent things, at the detriment of the things I like to do in my free time, but I’m back for the semester and ready to tackle the coming months ! I’ve got a few book reviews planned in the next two weeks or so, and a more personal post about moving 18h away from home, but for today, I thought I’d do something a little lighter – I saw this autumn tag on Jenn’s blog, and it looked like a lot of fun, so let’s try it ! 1. Hot Chocolate – what is your comfort book? I think it could be the last 3 Harry Potter books, but to be honest, it’s pretty much any book I read and liked when I was in middle school or high school. It was a difficult time, and books were the best escape I could find – they gave me a calm …

Top ten Tuesday – page to screen

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. I’m back with a top Ten Tuesday ! This week, the theme is “page to screen books”, and boy do I have many of those in mind ! Some that I’ve read and watched : The Chronicles of Narnia series – I love the books, and I remember that when the movies came out it was such a huge thing for me ! (It also made me want to actually try Turkish delight. And I hated it. Totally not worth betraying your family over. 0/10 would not recommend). The martian : I watched the movie first, absolutely loved it, and then thought “the book is probably even better, let’s give it a chance !” and I was not disappointed. Crazy Rich Asians – I actually started reading the …
