If you’ve been with me for a while now, you’ll know that fantasy is my favourite genre. As much as I try to read widely (and though I do read a lot of historical fiction), fantasy is always the winner. I can’t get enough of it!
When I was younger I used to hate reading. You couldn’t make me do it. It was a continuous nightmare for my mother trying to get me to read those tiny prescribed readings that you do in lower primary school. NIGHTMARE. WORDS. EW. And that didn’t really change until high school. Shocking, I know.
We all have our things that we go a little extra on, don’t we? Well, there’s cover buying and then there’s this. I love to choose books because the cover design is stunning – it’s the worst reason supposedly to choose a book but it rarely does me wrong. But I will often spend an extra penny just to get the edition of a book I really want; to get that version of the cover that looks prettiest.
Did you know, 131 years ago today the Eiffel Tower was opened to the public at the World Fair for the first time?! What an exciting anniversary this is. Is the Eiffel Tower something you want to see? Or something you’ve already visited?! I will never forget seeing it for the first time and being utterly confronted by how positively enormous the damn thing is.
My big and exciting (exciting? idek) question for you today, is are you in isolation? This is like the most epic dystopian novel come to life right now, isn’t it?! Obviously, it’s quite serious too so no dismissing that – BUT – it made me think that I want to go rogue and pick my own topic for this week.
I hope you’re all having a fabulous week! It has rained for the first time in the LONGEST of times here in Perth, which is always something to be excited about. And! This week I’ve started back at uni for my Masters and oh boy is everything exciting! What a week to be alive.
Holy MOLY it’s been such a long time since I last sat down and scribble out a Top Ten Tuesday. I’ve not been feeling a few of the prompts but today we’re talking about book hangovers and THAT, I can do.
Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful time welcoming in Fall if you live in the northern hemisphere, and I hope you’re not melting if you’re down in the southern parts of the world with me! Today we’re going to look at something different to the usual: things I’ve learnt blogging.
It’s not Autumn where I am, no. I live in Australia and we’re dusting off the chocolate wrappers from our brief dalliance (mostly with the sweets) from Halloween down here, and decking the halls with festive kangaroos and shrimps on barbie: Christmas is coming. So naturally, I’m going to talk about Autumn and the books one should read within it, even though it’s highly irrelevant.
Perhaps “rubbish titles” is a bit harsh, but you know what? Us readers need inspiring and GALLANT (can titles be gallant? probably not) titles to make us reach across the void (aka: our TBRs) and pluck a certain book from the sea of books out there. Because dang, if I see a ‘meh’ book title (especially if the cover is cringe) then it’s sinking real fast to the bottom of my TBR.
