Blogmas Day 20: Reflecting on My 2019 Goals

Hey guys! So last year I made a post where I reflected on my 2018 goals. I really enjoyed that a lot so I decided to do that for 2019. I know the year isn’t officially over yet but I know once Blogmas ends, I will probably take a little blog break. It’s been so fun doing this but it does take a toll on you. I am just happy to have participated and actually kept up with posting for as long as I have. I honestly don’t know how people do this all the time. I did find it tough at times. It still is a fun experience and I hope to do it again next year! So let’s dive in and talk about the goals I made and if I completed them.

Blogmas Day 25: 25 Reads Of December

25 Days of December 2018.jpgHey guys! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas. I can’t believe this is the last day of Blogmas. I am so sad to be done. I saw that Riveted was doing the 25 Reads of Christmas again. So that meant everyday leading up to Christmas a different book was free to read for one day. They ended up doing this last year. Last year I had a lot more free time so I could read more. This year I ended up being really busy and was working so I didn’t have much free time. So I decided I would talk about books I read, started and wanted to read. So let’s dive in. Continue reading “Blogmas Day 25: 25 Reads Of December”

Blogmas Day 23: Movies I Didn’t Get To In 2018

Hey guys! I have been having so much fun doing Movie Mondays. I decided since I did Books I Didn’t Get To In 2018 that I would do a post about movies as well. I started off the year strong because I had Moviepass but once that ended in March I didn’t go as much. The movie theater by me re-opened last Wednesday and I can’t wait to start going again. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Blogmas Day 23: Movies I Didn’t Get To In 2018”

Destiny’s Questions

What was the first book you reviewed, and what star rating did you give it?

 

1 Eleanor & Park

So I honestly don’t remember the first book I ever reviewed. I’m sure I could go on goodreads and find that out. I decided to do the first book I ever reviewed on my blog. That is Eleanor and Park By Rainbow Rowell. You can find the review here.

Would you rather DNF a book, or give it a poor star rating?

I honestly rather DNF a book. I don’t like giving books poor ratings. It’s such a crappy feeling when I don’t like a book. I hate when it was something I was looking forward to.

Where do you primarily acquire your books from? (i.e. specific bookstore, library, Amazon, etc.)

I have to say I do usually order books from amazon. I will also go to Barnes and Nobles. I also really like walking to the library so I’ll go there as well.

Have you ever/would you ever name a pet after a bookish character?

I have never named my pet after a bookish character. I can see myself naming a pet after someone from a book though. I’m still not really sure who I’d name the pet after though.

Is there a song that makes you think of a specific book?

Gemina

When I first read this question I didn’t have an answer but the song from Gemina By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff just popped into my head. I believe the song is from that one. It’s the oh yeah wanna lick your lollipop song.

What was the last book to make your mouth water with its food descriptions?

Destiny, I was just telling you that Anna and The French Kiss By Stephanie Perkins had me craving crepes. I was dying for one the other week. I still haven’t gotten one and now I want it again lol.

What was the last blog you followed? Give them a shout out!

I am so bad at this. I honestly don’t remember the last blog I followed. I am sorry 😦

Do you like BookTube? If so, who are your 5 favorite BookTubers?

Yes I do like BookTube. I do have a couple of favorite youtubers whose videos I try to watch when I go on.

Here they are:

  1. BooksandLala
  2. Emmmabooks
  3. Readbyzoe
  4. ChapterStackss
  5. Jadeyraereads

I think I’m going to do a post soon about my favorite youtubers. These are just a few of the people whose videos I try to watch when they upload. I do have others I really like as well. Plus I haven’t been watching as much lately.

Is there a bookish theme you refuse to read about, or a genre you won’t touch?

Um I don’t think so. I mean I’m willing to give everything a chance as long as it interests me. Sure there are some books I know I don’t want to read just cause I’m not into what they’re about.

Bookish candles: burn them or preserve them?

I currently own one bookish candle. I haven’t burned it yet. I feel I probably will once it gets colder out. I love burning candles.

What was the last book you hauled?

I ended up recently hauling The Last Time I Lied By Riley Sager and Somebody’s Daughter By David Bell. I went to their book signing event last Wednesday.


My Questions

  1. If you could meet any author who would you meet?
  2. What is the last book you regretted buying?
  3. If you had the chance to write a book with any author who would you pick?
  4. What book made a really big impact on you?
  5. Where is your favorite place to read?
  6. If you could turn any book into a movie, what book would you pick?
  7. Which bookish character do you look up to and why?
  8. If you could live the life as any character who would you pick and why?
  9. Would you ever get a bookish tattoo or do you already have one? What would you get?

You’re only allowed to read one more book and that’s it, what book do you pick?

Plot: Louisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She is thrown into the world of the superrich Gopniks: Leonard and his much younger second wife, Agnes, and a never-ending array of household staff and hangers-on. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her job and New York life within this privileged world.

Before she knows what’s happening, Lou is mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. In Still Me, as Lou tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself carrying secrets–not all her own–that cause a catastrophic change in her circumstances. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart that lives in two places?
