Hi! As you guys have seen i havent been writing a blog post in forever. The reasons are simple mostly the fact that life has been in the way, i havent had a motivation in ages and ive ended up using instagram as bookstagram mostly. I do not know if or when i wll come back writing here but i hope you will follow me at @mybooksoftales or just follow the link https://www.instagram.com/mybooksoftales/?hl=en I hope i`ll see you there! 🙂
2.When and where do you prefer to read? Everywhere! But i do mostly read in my couch :3 I have a favorite spot there!
3. If you could meet any character- be it real, fictional, or from a movie, or book- who would it be? I think it would have to be Simon Snow from Carry On, he seems like my type of character :p or Luna, since she`s so nice and odd, like me :p
4. What is your hobby (other than reading) and why? My hobbies includes gaming (ps4, switch- mostly) and diamond painting. I do it because its so much fun and i get so sucked in haha.
5. Your favourite artist (singer, painter, author, etc.)? It is so hard to choose, but i think it wll be BTS!
6. Any dreams and wishes for the world that you want to share? 🙂 To get covid gone!!
7.Any feedback for my blog? 😀 I really like it, ti`s so tidy and nice!
My Questions: 1. Your favorite christmas reads? 2. What is your favorite christmas cookies? 3. Do you prefer kindle or phone to read on? and why? 4. What is your favorite song right now? 5. Your favorite reading memory? 6. Do you have any christmas traditions? 7.Do you play any games? If so, wich one? and yes phone games also counts!
Aw man, it’s over! I really want to go back and re-read it right away, it had so much feels, so much heart and soul. Books that love, end up becomming a part of me and this one did also, that. When i got into it, i had no expetations, i didn’t even know what i could find when starting the pages. But i was sort-a- hooked on page 1, i kept reading whenever i could even how tired i was. And that must say something!
Honestly all the characters in their own way, made me feel so much. But i think, i felt and connected most with Eliza, sometimes life gets hard and one might feel guilty for feeling those things and feel like one is letting down so many people…and asking for help, or trying to get help is a big step. I loved the Monsterous Sea art, i’d love for it to become a real comic i could read one day, because honestly i’m a fan, maybe not like Wallace and maybe not like Eliza who’s the mother of this fandom – because i don’t think i can reach up to that level, or maybe i can? But, not just about the mental health issue that the author brought up, to be apart of a fandom, to make things to talk about fandom and it’s society .. Also familiy, how sort of diverce the families was, how they acted, thought – it make them seem real, yes there were some problems on the way, but in what familiy isin’t? And Wallace, he’s so adorable and sweet, i just want to pack him in a blanket and give him hot coca and pats on the head. i could ramble on and on about the book, but i think i’ll stop now.
My point is this: I loved the book with all my heart ❤
As you guys must have noticed, i haven’t been writing any weekly update or reviews since 4th of august. And i have been extremely tired and had anoxious days. So i’m going to take a break from the blog.
So, i don’t know yet when i might make another review, but don’t worry. i’ll be back 🙂
14:15 PM I’ve found my yoghurt and are ready to dive back into Carry On! 😀
18:20 PM I have now finished Carry on, and loved re-visiting Baz and Simon, are now stoked to read nr 2. c: Now i’m actually reading Fifthy Shades of Grey wich is also a re-read for me. So, that’s a 3# book for me, at this read-athon.
23:15 PM 3hours left of the readathon, give or take. And now i wonder about that read-a-thons isin’t exactly for me, i wonder if i thought it would be funnier than it actually was. I mean, i love reading i do, but having a read-a-thon, kind of feels a little forced? and it might have been more fun if i was up at the same time as everyone else or found someone to BuddyRead with. But, i didn’t know before i tried.
02:10 AM and so came the end of the read-a-thon for me. I managed to get to 74% of the Fifty shades of grey book. So i’d say it was an okay 24 hours, even though i didn’t read full of the times, and wonder if it is for me.
Though i might try, another time. 24 in 48. Maybe. we’ll see.
Mind you, i haven’t done this readathon before, but this is just an update on thoughts and books i read and other things i do. Might add pages and if i finish the books and whatnot.
02:00 AM – Start time Woho, start time for me! I kind of wishes it wasn’t so late. But, oh well! I don’t have a particular tbr, i’m just taking what i feel and want to read. I’m going to read Highway to Heaven or in norwegian «Livet, Motorsykler og andre umilige prosjekter» Wich i could’nt find in english or norwegian at GR. but i just added the swedish version.
04:00 AM – Finished with a book I’ve finished with Highway to Heaven, wich i ended up rated 2 stars. So, meh. The cats are going a little crazy atm haha. Decided to start Carry on by Rainbow Rowell, this is a re-read for me but just in time for the soon to be next release! ❤
05:00 AM – Sleep calls! I’m heading to bed now, my eyes are too heavy to read more.
05:30 AM – 14:00 PM I ended up tossing and turning and not having the greatest of night, tossing and turning so sleep did not come easily and that put a dent in my readathon.
On the come up is my second book i’ve read from the author Angie Thomas, and let me just tell you now – WOW. Even though that «gangsta» talk and sometimes how the characters acted in a way, was somewhat wierd to me, did it not stop me from liking it. I loved it from page to page, Bri or Brianna is fierce, smart-mouthed and badass, but also emotional, insecure and sweet… i just liked her so much, and could relate to what she thought and wanted. This book made me laugh, cry and slightly rage – i connected with Bri the whole time and this was so badass! I loved the rapping she did and could hear how she would have rapped in my head. The only bad thing i has to say is? I’m seriously sad because it’s over! 😦 I want more!
I make a small list, just because i felt for it: Sonny – I’m so happy he got his, happy ending? ish? at least he dared to chase it c: Malik – Was tbh, mad at him ALOT. But I understood what and why. Curtis – He’s such an adorable dork and he and Bri fits so perf ❤ Trey – Such a awesome big brother 🙂 Jay – Their mom is also fierce, and wants to take care of everything herself, even though it’s hard. She loves them, alot. Aunt Pooh – She has to decide who she wants to be, even though it’s hard.
Sadly i read basically nothing for this day. I read some at One The Come Up plus some ARCs. But it was too hot and i’m not feeling too good right now. So that was how it is. But, i managed to get these badges: Read a book with purple on the cover – City of Bones by Cassandra Clare Read a book in the same spot the entire time – I’m fine and neither are you by Camille Pagàn (read it in the couch) Read a five star book – Leah on the offbeat by Becky Allberati Read a book you ment to read last year – Leah on the offbeat – By Becky Allberati Posted a reading rush picture – check out bookgeek95 c: Read over 1000 pages: I ended up reading 1220 pages.
I bet now you’ve been wondering, why i did not post this yesterday. And the reason is, i don’t exactly have so much to tell you. I mean i started Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern for the badge of read an authors first book. I read like 35 pages or so, but forgot to update you guys because, i started sims again! 😀 and then i got a little obsessed with that. Also it was too hot for me to manage to read much. I’m not sure if i’ll be able to finish Night Circus tonight, but we’ll see.
Today i am ashamed – or not? to say i did do no reading whatsoever. We went to the beach wich took us in a horrid buss driver for over 45 minutes where it was so hot and too many people and came to the beach, a little bit dissapointed. We anticipated it to be lots of people, it wasn’t that – but the water had so much mud and seaweed floating inwards to the beach so we could’nt see anything with swimming googels plus the sand was painful and hot to walk on both on land and in the water. My fiancè went around checking the other small ‘areas’ where one could swim… and *shrudders* he suddenly saw two used condoms, IN the water wich almost hit him. In general the beach was not to our liking that much, to be honest it was so overhyped and ugh. The other beach we was on were much better so we wonder if we’re gonna go there next time. This place was just a hassle and the toilet rooms there were … just ew. Not a place i’d go back to bathe, honestly.
