Let’s Talk Movies: The 5th Wave

Let’s Talk Movies: The 5th Wave

Hello, my lovely people (if you haven’t been told this today, you are so lovely). I just got out of the theater about an hour ago after watching the 5th Wave. If you’ve been following my blog, you’d know that The 5th Wave was one of my most anticipated book-to-movie adaptations of the year. I read the book last summer and really enjoyed the story, despite a lot of over-floweriness that usually bothers me. I remember just being engrossed by the story and loving it. You can read my full review for the book here. Before I start talking about the […]

What Book Bloggers Actually Do

What Book Bloggers Actually Do

A few days ago, my sister-in-law posted this picture on my Facebook wall…and I thought it was hilarious: This is basically the life of a book blogger. We read books, we touch books, we review books, we research books, we do all these things. Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes. BUT there’s a lot more to us, you know? We have depth, us book bloggers. We are complex creatures with different interests and hobbies and feelings and thoughts. You know in those meme things, where it’s like “What I Think I’m Doing,” “What My Mom Thinks I’m Doing,” “What My Friends […]

Why I Started Book Blogging…And Why It’s Still So Great

Why I Started Book Blogging…And Why It’s Still So Great

Hey guys. If you’re a book blogger and if you’ve been on Twitter throughout yesterday…you’d know that there was some drama and there was some a lot of tension between authors and publicists and bloggers alike. It was kind of the worst. Drama happens in any community, and the book blogging community is definitely no exception. Personally, I am one of those people that 150% hates confrontations. I don’t like them and they make me nervous. So I don’t get involved. But I felt like I had something to say about this. And I actually had another post scheduled for today, but […]

Read Before You Watch: Four 2016 Book-to-Movie Adaptations I Cannot Wait For

Read Before You Watch: Four 2016 Book-to-Movie Adaptations I Cannot Wait For

Are you guys ready for 2016? No? Yes? Let me help you a little bit. It is a widely-known fact that the book is almost always better than the movie. It just generally has more. More context, more character depth, more thought processes, more action. Just more. But what isn’t as widely known are which movies that are coming out are based on books. So I’m here to help you out, to let you know which of the book-to-movie adaptations I’m most excited for this year! You in? Yes? Okay, let’s go. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey Goodreads Page and Movie Trailer Book Release Date: […]

Extraordinary Books that Started as Humble Nanowrimo Novels

Extraordinary Books that Started as Humble Nanowrimo Novels

November is almost over. BAH. What the heck. Anyway, with November came the ever-so-popular and simultaneously ever-so-stressful event known as Nanowrimo, or National Novel Writing Month. The point is basically to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Which can seem like a pretty daunting task, but it’s pretty awesome if you ask me. Although I’ve never actually done it myself (it’s on my bucket list, don’t you worry). But there have been some amazing novels written and published that are the products of Nanowrimo. Seriously, some of these are all-time favorites of mine. So I just wanted to spotlight some of them that I […]

I Have So Much to Be Grateful For

I Have So Much to Be Grateful For

This past Tuesday, the Top Ten Tuesday prompt was just a Thanksgiving Freebie. And I had every intention of writing a post about ten books that I’m grateful for. I even listed out seven of them during my Grammar class when I should’ve been paying attention. But then Monday night rolled around, and I was already lying in my bed when I remembered that I had yet to write the post. And I already hadn’t written a TTT since the 3rd, so why break my streak now? Just kidding, but no. I’m not kidding. Anyway, but I have so much more than just […]
