Birthday Book Tag – 17th birthday!

Birthday Book Tag – 17th birthday!

I am back! After months of absence, I am back. And yesterday, the 7th of May 2021, was my 17th birthday. It’s become a sort of tradition for me to do this Book Tag, so I decided this would make a splendid “I’m back” post! I didn’t want to make a whole post about what’s been going on and how I’ll be regularly posting now. Things have been weird the past couple of months, juggling school and finals and life in the pandemic. The point is I’m back, and I’ll be posting consistently. Let’s start the questions for this tag!

Count your birth date along your bookshelf and then subtract your birth month. What book does it land on?

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green. This is one of my all-time favorites! Also, whilst counting I noticed I’ve dropped a couple of books behind the shelf. I promise I’ll pick them up after writing!

Which character would you like to spend your birthday with?

I would spend it with Jude from The Cruel Prince. I am currently reading it, and I feel she would be a good person to show me around the Faerie land. (I feel like a lot of the answers in book tags are heavily influenced by my current read.)

Find a book that takes place in the season you were born in.

The Great Gatsby. The summer of 1922.

Find a book that is the colour of your birthstone.

Birthstone = emerald = green

One of the first book series I fell in love with. Percy Jackson and The Lightening Thief.

Is there a series with the same numbers of books as your age? If so what is it?

A book series with 17 books? I haven’t got a clue.

Pick a book set in a time period, a world or country you would like to have been born in.

The Lunar Chronicles. I cannot express how much I love this series.


So, that’s the end of the Birthday Book Tag. Just a quick update on how I plan to post now. I’m going to be posting on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. And I am really exicted to be back on here, I really missed it. Now, I’m off to catch up on the possibly thousands of posts I missed during my ‘hiatus’. (I’m also going to pick up those books, don’t worry!)


Until next time.

Three things about me!

  1. I have glasses! I don’t wear them as much as I should, but I have ’em.
  2. I have a stack of blue books on my desk. I love blue and I love books. What can I say?
  3. I love the song “Bennie and The Jets”.

Questions:

Do you like to read? If so, what is your favourite book genre?

I love reading. (I tend to live by the quote: Reading is breathing in, writing is breathing out. They’re two sides of the same coin.)

I am open to all genres. (Having conquered the horror genre whilst in quarantine!). If I HAD to pick a favourite genre, I would pick Young Adult.


How much time do you put into your blog?

It depends, mate. Lately, I’ve not been spending a ton of time on my blog. I try to do my best. I have to juggle school, writing, reading, blog, housework, and well, life.

To me, having a blog is somewhere I can express myself and I try to not let it become a burden. I love my blog and over the months it has become one of my “safe” places. 🙂


What is your favourite hobby (besides blogging or reading)?

Some might expect me to say writing. But, writing is much more than a hobby to me. Reading and writing are as important to me as breathing.

My favourite hobby is designing, editing, and photography. I am pretty good at it, and I really love it.


How long have you been blogging?

Dear readers, it is story-time. I started blogging in 2016, stopped because of bullying, and started properly blogging about a year ago. By properly I mean I started writing what I wanted to write and was proud of it.

Now, I love blogging and wouldn’t give it up for anything!


If you could go back in time to one year ago, what advice would you give yourself?

Screw others. Do what is right for you. It’s better to think about your future rather than pleasing people who won’t be in your life after a few years.

Maggie

Book Beach Bunny

Birthday Book Tag! 🎉💕

Birthday Book Tag! 🎉💕

Hi everyone! Hope you’re doing well. Today is my 16th birthday! 🎈🎉💕

The Birthday Book Tag has become somewhat of a tradition, so here we go!


jANE aUSTEN


Count your birth date along your bookshelf and then subtract your birth month. What book does it land on?

Peter Pan by J.M.Barrie!!! How ironic is that?!?


If you could spend your birthday with any fictional character who would it be and why?

Newt from The Maze Runner. I am currently re-reading TMR and he is my favorite character!


Find a book that takes place in the season you were born in.

I can’t think of any. Most books I read seem to take place over many seasons, instead of just one. I can think of many winter ones, but not one summer book. Let me know in the comments if you can think of one.


Find a book that is the colour of your birthstone.

My birthstone is emerald. And as I said, I am re-reading The Maze Runner.

So…downloadIt’s kind of green…


Is there a series with the same numbers of books as your age? If so what is it?

I don’t know of any. There might be.


Pick a book set in a time period, a world or country you would like to have been born in.

Harry Potter. ( Like I was going to choose anything else…)


So, that’s all! Have a great day! I plan to read all day and make the most of a quarantine birthday!


Until Next Time...3

The Book Snob Tag|| thebookofjess

The Book Snob Tag|| thebookofjess

Hi! Hope you’re all having a great day! Today I am going to be doing The Book Snob Tag. I saw this tag a few weeks ago and screenshotted the questions, so I do not know which blog I stole it from…! If you do know, do let me know in the comments!


The Book Snob Tag


Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?

 I try to definitely. But sometimes it just so happens I do not know that a book adaptation exists. This has happened only 4 or 5 times. I have also watched movies of books that are in another language. 


Format Snob: You can only choose one format to read for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical, ebooks, or audiobooks.

PHYSICAL!! I do, admittedly read a lot of ebooks and have listened to a few audiobooks, but physical books are THE BEST!! No arguments! The feeling, the joy of holding a book is incomparable. 


Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?

My friends have asked me this before and I think that I would. If the person is ready to listen to my rants about books, and be okay with my reading, then it could work out. They have to LISTEN.


Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?

HORROR. I am sorry to horror fans but I am not a very brave person when it comes to ghosts or dolls… I have gotten into reading a bit of horror but so far I have read only 5 books. So, if I had to ditch a genre forever, it would be horror. 


Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

This is so hard!!!! Hmm…I’m going to say..fiction? That’s a very big genre. Hopefully, I could outsmart the question…? 


Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

ROMANCE! I get a lot of hate for liking Twilight and Me Before You and a hundred other books. People think it is very sappy and soft. But they do not know the absolute joy of reading these books. The hate, the love, the peril that you feel…I’m going to stop now. I will literally go on for years…lol! 


Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or reading in general?

Yes! I get snubbed for reading on a daily basis but I mostly get snubbed for reading autobiographies. I love autobiographies and people, in general, don’t. I’ve gotten pretty used to it and let their words fall on deaf ears. Everyone in the book community has been snubbed about their books at some point. 


Thank you for reading! Hope you liked it! 🙂

Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you’ll! ♥

The Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag||thebookofjess

The Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag||thebookofjess

Hi! Hope you’re having a lovely day! ♥ Today I am going to be doing a tag I saw over at Sofii’s blog! And it looked really fun, so I decided to do it! Hope you like it!

P.S. I know I mentioned in my last post that I am going to be posting “Me Before You review” and “Recommended Reading”, but this was the only post in my Drafts for a very long time, so I decided to let it out!

So, Book Bloggers, I’m about to reveal all our secrets! Haha! Just kidding! I would never betray you! (Honestly, I am so weird! Lol!)


BOOK tag


How long have you been blogging?

That is comp-li-cated! I opened my blog back in 2016 but was very insecure and anxious about what I should post. Discouragement from my peers resulted in me just leaving it. Two years later, on May 2018, I finally decided to come back and let’s just say it was one of the best decisions I ever made! ♥ So, I have been properly blogging for about 1.5 years now!


At what point do you think you’ll stop blogging?

…NEVER!! My ghost will come back to the blog! I’m sure of it…! I might take little breaks occasionally as I juggle a lot of things and it is impertinent to take a break from certain things to keep everything in order. But I would never altogether stop blogging! I love it way too much!


What is the best thing about blogging?

The fact that I get a platform to express myself is the best thing about blogging for me. In real life, I am a weird, quirky, awkward teenager who reads books and is basically just missing the nerd glasses. (In fact, I do have glasses, just hate wearing them!) Here, on my blog, or any written media actually, I am still that weird person but I am me. I feel right.


What is the worst thing? What do you do to make it okay?

The pressure of blogging is somewhat of a stress-causing element. The feeling that people will read this and will think about it, leaves me a bit anxious.

But, this was the reason why I stopped blogging in 2016. So, I don’t let this affect me now. To make it okay, I just blog. It helps me ease my mind. In the past year, I have mentally made my blog one of my ‘safe places’ and it’s a great feeling!


How long does it take you to make/find pictures to use?

Mostly I use book covers, which I usually download from Google. I use a lot of Canva to design Featured Images and Header Images. Canva is amazing! I love to design and it has really useful tools which I can use!


Who is your book crush?

Percy Jackson. It’s impossible to not have a crush on Percy if you have read Percy Jackson!


What author would you like to have on your blog?

I read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire a few months ago and I absolutely loved it. I would love to interview him, as I think it’s a pretty underrated book. It is one of the best books I have read that is based in real life.


What do you wear when you write your blog posts?

I wear PJ’s literally ALL the time! Except for school and the rare days, I leave the house are the only times when I have not worn PJs! What can I say? They’re So comfortable! Do you feel the same about PJs?


How long does it take you to prepare?

A book review of a book I’ve recently read takes me about half an hour to write as I am literally full to the brim with ideas! Other types of posts take me about 2-3 hours; designs and writing all included. I mostly write on Friday/Saturday in school time and just any day of the week during holidays!


How do you feel about the blogging community?

It is literally like a family. The blogging community provides encouragement and constructive criticism, both of which are crucial to growth, in the right proportion. Exploring other blogs has also helped me to better understand the views and interests of people better than I would have if I learned about people in real life! So, a big THANK YOU to all of you!!!


What do you think one should do to create a successful blog?

I am about to say something really cliche and cheesy. BE YOURSELF. If you become successful by pretending to be someone you are not, it no purpose. Be you and that’ll attract the kind of people that like your weird, quirky self!


Thank you’ll for reading! Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you’ll!

Have a great day! ♥♥

Mystery Blogger Award

Mystery Blogger Award

Hi! Hope you’re having a great day! ♥ I was nominated for The Mystery Blogger Award by Ink’em Down and it’s very fun and I am super psyched to do this!


mystery-blogger-award

What is the Mystery Blogger Award?
“The Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.” – Okoto Enigma

6. Nominate 10-20 people.
7. Notify your nominees.
8. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice, specifying one weird/funny question.
9. Share a link to your best post.


Three Things About Me.

  • I have four journals. I keep things like little paper notes passed in class, things written on napkins, little trinkets from occasions or from a day that I spent with someone special or a good day…you get the idea.
  • I am somewhat of a workaholic and worrier. I get anxious about things a lot. It has gotten better, though. But, I have come to see that I can actually use this anxiety and worry to my advantage. I always get things done on time…way before time actually. In the past few months, I have been pretty positive and I hope to continue it!
  • I listen to songs. But, I am the kind of person who listens to the same batch of 30 songs for a good few years. I do listen to new songs but not more than 5 times. Those 30 or so songs are CONSTANT! (I’m not ashamed to add that my list also has Let It Go from the 2013 movie Frozen because (a) I feel in love with it 6 years ago and (b) that song is freaking awesome!).

My Answers

What makes you laugh hard?

So many things. As of now, I would go with the show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It’s so funny! I can’t wait for the seventh season! Let me know in the comments if you’ll have heard of this show?

What is the one fruit you can’t survive without?

BANANAS!!!!! LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!

The biggest change in your life over the past year?

I sort of re-arranged my life in the past year. Last year was, there is no other word for it, crappy. A lot has changed since then, my classes, my house (we recently moved) and my general attitude towards things, the type of people I hang around with (I had some pretty bad “friends” all last year). So, a lot has changed and I think it would be difficult to put it in a paragraph because honestly, as simple as it seems, it’s not.

A book you’ve read more than once?

I always read a book at least twice if I really like it. I have read the Harry Potter books at least 15 times.

But…

I always reply to these questions with Harry Potter. this time, I’m going to give a different answer. I have read The Hunger Games books a good couple of times! I absolutely LOVE The Hunger Games!

If you could ride one wild animal, which would it be?

A lion! Ever since I read The Chronicles of Narnia, it has been my dream!


My Questions

  1. What is your favorite band?
  2. What is your favorite song?
  3. Would You Rather: Never be able to use a laptop ever again or never be able to use a phone ever again? (Sorry, I know it’s HARD!
  4. What is a melodramatic thing that you do?
  5. How healthy do you think your lifestyle is?

I Tag:

Ashleigh | By Hook or By Book | Sara | Jeyran Main | Justine Little Fears | Shalini | Ris | Maggie |

To the ones I’ve tagged, feel no pressure to do it soon, or at all! Just know that I absolutely think you are worthy of this award! ♥♥


Best Post

I think that my best post would be My Thoughts On Hermione Granger’s Behaviour in Philosopher’s Stone and Why She is the Main Hero.

Admittedly, it is one of my least viewed and liked posts. In my eyes, it is my best. Hermione is an extremely misunderstood character. People see her as a know-it-all and a stickler for rules and goody two shoes. But she is actually much more and inside, she is, after all, a girl who is scared of discovering the world. It is her attitude and skills that save Harry and Ron from the beginning. I put a lot of passion and work into this post and I would like it if you could pop over and give it a read!


Thank you for reading! Hope you have a great day!

The Pancake Book Tag!

The Pancake Book Tag!

Hi! Hope you’re having a lovely day! ♥ | I was tagged by Anna @ RoseandThornBooks for The Pancake Book Tag! She’s probably very mad at me as I’m doing this literally months later! Sorry, Anna!

Also, this is my third post in the past three days! Wow! Who is this!?! Lol!


pan 1.png

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

rj

How can this book not come to your mind when you think of prose and descriptions! Love this book. Just no words.

But can we take a moment to admire the cover…it’s so perfect for the story.


pan 2.png

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

artemis fowl book cover

Artemis Fowl is the youngest criminal mastermind, who has exploited the fairy civilization living under the earth. He is the description of sharp wit and intelligence. How can you not pick him!?


pan 3.png

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (duh…)

philosopher's stone book cover

I have already “devoured” it about 20 times. And I’m still down to re-reading it! Don’t underestimate me where Harry Potter is concerned!

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

talbilb

It is such a homely book! I really admire the author’s writing style!

The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint Exupery

the little prince book review

The Little Prince may seem like just another Peter Pan to some. But only by reading can one interpret the deep meaning behind it. The meaning of Life and Death. The character Little Prince has a mysterious yet familiar history.


pan 7.png

The Selection by Keira Cass

selection book cover

In the first few chapters, I totally shipped America and Aspen and it broke my heart when they broke up and she got Selected. Then, a few more chapters into the book, I shipped The Prince and America. And then, when Aspen got recruited for the royal guard and came to the palace, I got…torn. And this whole freaking series just kept me guessing! Nonetheless, I loved it!


pan 8.png

Ascend by Amanda Hocking

ascend book cover

Loki and Wendy from Ascend (#3 in the Trylle Trilogy). Loki just came out of the blue and at first, I absolutely despised him but ended up shipping those two! (And admit to a friend that yes, they were the perfect match.)


pan 9.png

weasley.jpg

Percy Weasley from Harry Potter. He was a brat in the fifth and sixth book and although he had his “turn over a new leaf” moment in Deathly Hallows, I still can’t forgive him fully. I am just happy he made peace with his family before Fred’s death…


pan 10.png

Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

boo

This book has everything. The Greek Gods, Demigods, Hunters of Artemis, Amazons and what will all the characters accepting who they were. This book just has a little bit of everything…love, action, drama, YA, Paranormal, contemporary…even horror if you get scared as easily as I do!


I Tag:

Anyone who likes pancakes! Or if you just think it’s a fun tag! (Which it totally is :3)


Thank you for reading! Hope you have a great day!

Flynn Rider. Okay, I can go with that! Tangled is one of my favorite Disney movies! (Toy Story and Beauty and the Beast being the others!) Flynn Ryder is also the coolest and nonchalant yet very brave and loyal and cute!


Who’s My Best Friend?

Z 3.jpg

Meeko! I am not a huge Pocahontas fan but I love that raccoon!


What’s My Greatest Weakness?

Z 4.jpg

Gaston. At last! Something from Beauty and the Beast! He is the most obnoxious and vain villain I came across. But I don’t think he is a weakness.


Thank you’ll for reading!!

Hope you have an awesome day and week ahead! Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you’ll! ♥ ♥

Birthday Book Tag

Birthday Book Tag

Hi! I hope you’re having a great day and week! Guess what!? Today is my birthday! I am officially 15 years old! Gosh, I feel old! (I really don’t but isn’t that what people say!?) So, anyways, I wanted you guys to know that today was my birthday but didn’t know how to say it without being a snob! I didn’t want to go like, “Hey! Today is my birthday! Wish me!” (Although I would love it if you did…hehe!) Sofii @ A Book A Thoughtcame to my rescue! I saw this tag on her blog and it seemed like a fun way to say that today’s my birthday! Okay, that’s a lot of intros! Let’s get on with the actual post!

What a beautiful book to land on! I love The Little Prince!

If You Could Spend Your Birthday With Any Fictional
Character Who Would It Be and Why?

He’s a demigod for freaking’s sake! Like I’m gonna pass that up! He could take me to Camp Half-Blood! Dream come true!


Find A Book That Takes Place In The Season You Were Born In

I love this book so much! I am not sure whether it does take place in summer or not. So don’t kill me in the comments!


Pick a Book Set in a Time Period, World or Country You’d Like to Have Been Born In.

The UK. All my life I have loved the UK and everything about it!

And of course, I would love to have been born in the Wizarding World!


Find A Book That Is The Color of Your Birthstone.

selection book cover.jpg

My birthstone is turquoise and this is one of the prettiest covers I know in that color! One of my friends in my new class recommended this book to me and my god! I fell in love with it! So much that I finished the first two books in the series in three days! I am very grateful to her for recommending this!


Is there a series with the same number of books as your age? If so what is it?

Wow! I have no idea of a book series having 15 books! If you do then do let me know in the comments! I’d love to read it!

My biggest complaint with books is that they don’t have enough books! 15 reaches close to my target!


Thank you for reading! Hope you have a great day and a great week ahead! ♥

Questions:

1) If you were to meet your self from an alternate universe, what would you do with them?

Food!❤ How can I go to bed hungry!? And well, food is food!


3) Favorite breed of dog/cat?

Favorite breed of cat is Turkish Angora and favorite breed of dog is Welsh Corgi! ❤They’re sooo cute!


4) Five people, you cannot live without?

My sister, father, grandmother, and two of my really close friends. (If you’ll are wondering why I didn’t include my mother…that’s because she died when I was 2 years old…)


5) Do you think you would survive a zombie apocalypse?

It depends on so many factors! Like where I am, who I am with, what I have with me…?

I am a very good planner, so I think that I could think of a plan to escape and hide, and hopefully survive…


6) What is the best name you can think of for a baby?

I love proper English names! ♥ So, the best name I can think for a baby girl is Darcy or Rose. And for a baby boy, Harry or William. They are so cute names! I can’t pick!


7) Do you like your own name or would you want to change it? What would you change it to?

I like my own name as it’s pretty unique. Many people’s real name is Jessica or Jessie or Jesse and they use “Jess” as a short form! But my name is Jess! I’m pretty happy and content with my name.


8) Would you rather lose your feet or your hands?

Neither!!


9) If you were to meet me, what is the first thing you would say to me? (except for the “good mornings and afternoons and stuff” of course)

If I meet somebody, then the first thing I talk about is books! If they are not into reading, then I move the conversation to movies and shows or songs. I am also a very shy person and wait for others to make the first move. But after you get to me know me, I can annoy you to another dimension with my talking!!


10) Do you sleep on your back or on your stomach?

Generally, I fall asleep on my side, but while sleeping, I become a freaking gymnast!

Whitney’s Questions:

1) How many books do you typically read at one time?

I read about 2 to3 books at a time. As of the day I am typing this, 3rd May 2019, I am reading Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer and Selection by Keira Cass.


2) What genre are you the most drawn to?

I am most drawn to YA. I just love it sooooo much!


3) What is your favorite summer activity?

Staying inside…haha! Just kidding! My favorite activity is cycling!


4) Do you shop for books mostly online or in physical bookstores?

I mostly shop for books online, ebooks. Although I do go to bookstores about once or twice a month. I love going to the bookstore! It’s like a maze of books!


5) What is your favorite bookish app?

Kindle app. I can easily read books on my phone and it’s very convenient.

Another app I use is a blue light filter app. The blue light in the mobile screen is what really damages your eyes. So, by downloading a blue light filter app, you can avoid specs! I discovered this way after I got my specs though!


6) Do you ever write in your books?

Okay, I do something weird. On the first page of my books, I write, “Property of a bookworm” I know it’s stupid but I love doing it!


7) What is your biggest pet peeve?

Little noises like table tapping, humming, pen clicking! Ugh! I hate these noises! Especially when I’m reading!


8) Speaking of pets, do you have any?

No. I don’t have any pets…yet…

I plan to get a cat in the near future.


9) Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Night owl. I am very moody and grumpy in the morning. I hate waking up!


10) How often do you read throughout the day?

Every two to three hours. Its like oxygen to me!

I can be myself.

Monthly Wrap-Up||April 2019

Monthly Wrap-Up||April 2019

Hi! I hope you’re all having a lovely day!♥ |It’s May already!! How time flies! It’ll be the middle of the year in a month! I am always super excited for May, as it is the start of my favorite season, summer! (It’s kind of a toss between spring and summer! But I like summer more as I suffer from allergies during spring!)

This month was pretty good for reading! I managed to read 9 books (3 re-reads). I feel that this month was definitely better than last month, where I re-read pretty much the whole month! (Although re-reading can be a very good thing!)

And also, I am so happy that I am publishing this right on time! (I finally did something on time! Lol!)


Monthly Wrap-up April 2019.png


Torn by Amanda Hocking

torn

The second installment in the Trylle Trilogy. Lovely book! I highly recommend reading it!


Ascend by Amanda Hocking

ascend book cover

Third and final installment in the Trylle Trilogy! I am a bit sad it ended!


Artemis Fowl and the Eternity Code

afowl 3

I was so happy that in this book the fairy People and Artemis actually have respect and gratitude towards each other! I must say this series is developing into a complex, and diverse yet lovable story!


 

Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan (Trilogy)

kane

Rick Riordan, the author of the Percy Jackson series, inspired me to read this! This is based on Egyptian Mythology and focuses on the two main characters, Sally and Carter, brother and sister. I wasn’t very interested in Egyptian Mythology until I read this! And needless, to say I loved it! I have never yet read a book of this author that I didn’t like! (And I don’t think I will tbh!)


Re-reads!

Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

boo

As I mentioned in my last month’s wrap-up post, where I re-read the House of the Hades, I feel like I have rushed through the last two books in the Heroes of Olympus series. So, a re-read was in order.


Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

&

Deathly Hallows

 

Like duh!


I read…9 books! 


Thank you for reading! Hope you have a great day and a great week ahead! ♥

Song Request Book Tag

Hi! I hope you’re all having a great day! ♥ | I was tagged by the amazing Sara for the Song Request Book Tag! And I must say I loved the idea of this tag and I wanted to do it as soon as possible! Go and check out Sara’s blog for more fun tags like this and great content!


thebookofjess.png


RULES: 

  • Thank and link back to the tagger.
  • Credit to Daniel @ Page to Page
  • Listen to tagger’s song requests! After you’re done listening to the three songs the person who tagged you has chosen, choose a book that you think best goes along with that song and tell us why you chose it!
  • Request 3 songs of your own! Give any three songs (and your corresponding book choices that think to go well with the said song) you want for your taggers to listen and respond to!
  • Tag 5 people!

Sara’s Requests! 

1. “Too Proud” by Broods 

Here’s the link: Too Proud by Broods

 

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer 

artemis fowl book cover

So many times that I’ve been
Too proud to let it out
(When I feel it’s too much to handle)
So many times that I’ve been
Too proud to let it out
And then I start to get nervous
What if I never resurface?
No one can hear me down here
The pressure gets worse
The further I fall
The dimmer the light
The lower I go
And I’m getting cold

Artemis Fowl is a criminal mastermind, child prodigy and perhaps, the cleverest person on this planet. But, he is a very lonely person and suppresses emotion. This is the first book that came to my mind when I heard this.


2. “Strangers” by Sigrid

Here’s the link: Strangers by Sigrid

 

Ascend by Amanda Hocking 

ascend book cover

Like strangers
Perfect pretenders
We’re falling head over heels
For something that ain’t real
It could never be us, eh
Just you and I
Strangers
Perfect pretenders
We’re falling head over heels
For something that ain’t real
It could never be us, eh
Just you and I

In the book Ascend by Amanda Hocking, we see our main character, Wendy falling for the Vittra Loki and vice versa. They are complete strangers and still, they know that they can trust and believe each other. This song is so perfect for this book that I can’t help thinking that it was written for it!


3. “Vindicated” by Dashboard Confessional

Here’s the link: Vindicated by Dashboard Confessional

Artemis Fowl (yet again…)

artemis fowl book cover

Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right, I swear I’m right
Swear I knew it all along and
I am flawed
But I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

Okay. I feel like I am horrible at answering questions like these. But this song reminds me of the Artemis Fowl series yet again!! Artemis is so selfish and self-centered during the first stage of the series, but as the series develops, Artemis does too. He begins to be more empathetic and considerate and the good qualities of his personality bloom, especially with the help of Holly, the fairy elf. So, yeah I’m going with this answer!

 

I want you to know, my dear friend that without you I would not be the person I am today. I was a broken  boy and you fixed me. Thank you.

-Artemis Fowl to Holly Short (The Last Guardian)


My Requests!

1) Head Above Water by Avril Lavigne 

Here’s the link: Head Above Water by Avril Lavigne

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

thg.jpg

Yeah, my life is what I’m fighting for
Can’t part the sea, can’t reach the shore
And my voice becomes the driving force
I won’t let this pull me overboard
God, keep my head above water
Don’t let me drown, it gets harder
I’ll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don’t let me drown, drown, drown
Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me drown
This song screams The Hunger Games to me! The way Katniss volunteers for Prim and the way she fights to make everything okay, the torture and pain she goes through, and yet she doesn’t lose hope and keeps on fighting!

 


2) Two Young Hearts by Sabrina Carpenter

Here’s the link: Two Young Hearts by Sabrina Carpenter

 

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent.jpg

It’s a narrow line I’m walkin’
Better watch myself
‘Cause we got everybody talkin’
And I can hear ’em say
Maybe in another lifetime
Maybe when you’re older
What they don’t know is
I’ve already made up my mind (My mind)
And yes I know what love is

I think of so many characters from different books when I hear this song!! But I am going to pick Divergent. Four and Tris don’t get to be together in the end. (Tris dies!!!) I picked Divergent as it is one of the books that I love and haven’t spoken about on my blog much. Also, I feel that this song signifies what Four and Tris had.


3) Seamless by Sabrina Carpenter

Here’s the link: Seamless by Sabrina Carpenter

 

Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling 

philosopher's stone book cover

Good morning, you’re leaving
I’ll see you in the evening
My best friend till the end
My better half no pretend
Our language is sacred
No people try to solve it
New adventures on the way
You and me together
Take on the world forever
I know all your secrets
And I promise you I’m gonna keep them
I’ll be there when you are feeling clueless
You and me, oh yeah we’re seamless
Woah oh, yeah, woah oh
Did you think I would leave this book out?!?
There is no better bookish friendship than The Golden Trio. They’re Friendship Goals!

The Harry Potter Tag!

The Harry Potter Tag!

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day! As many of you might know, I am a huge HP geek! and if you didn’t, you must be new to this blog! HI! I am a bookworm and a huge HP geek!

So, I was going through some of my old posts and I came across this tag that I had done and I saw that my answers have changed a lot! My house, patronus, everything! So, I decided to do this again!


What house are you in? 

_20180324_134424-1685043865.jpg

I am divergent. First time I got Hufflepuff (…). Then I lost that account and got Gryffindor. A few weeks ago, one of my friends told me to retake it. She told me since I read so much and I am always on the lookout to learn anything and my dream house is a library, so I must be a Ravenclaw. I took the Pottermore quiz yet again! And I am a Ravenclaw!! I’m sticking with that. To be honest, Ravenclaw seems more like me. It feels right to me.


What is your patronus? 

dolphin partronus

Dolphin. Um..that’s it.


What would your boggart be? 

boggart

I actually took a quiz for this! (Crazy idea. I know!) And I fear fear itself. Like Harry.

I am Harry Freaking Potter! (You’ll get this pun if you have watched A Very Potter Musical!)


What position would you play in Quidditch? 

seeker

Seeker. I am small and fast. I could be a Chaser too. But I could never get the ball through the hoop. I’m terrible at basketball!  (For the Witches and Wizards reading this. Basketball is a game like quidditch but without brooms and on the ground and there is only one ball.)


What job would you want to have after leaving Hogwarts? 

_20180524_111423777277618.jpg

An Auror. Imagine all the adventures I could have!


Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose? 

_20180524_1114041707314319.jpg

The Elder Wand is too much! Resurrection  Stone is freaky. I think The Cloak of Invisibility is the safest and most useful one. So the Cloak of Invisibility! And it would be very handy while I’m fighting evil!


Favorite book? 

philosopher's stone book cover

Philosopher’s Stone. It is the book where everything began. I just love it. No explanation!


Least favorite book? 

_20180524_111249-1274634373.jpg

I love all the books. But if I HAD to pick, I would pick Order of the Phoenix. I get it that Harry is going through his teen years and he has problems to deal with, but he is so freaking moody in that book!


Favorite film? 

_20180524_112055-192284747.jpg

Chamber of Secrets. I have watched it about 12 times! It’s so perfect. *remembers “Bad Dobby!” scene!*


Least favorite film? 

_20180524_111214-1309311002.jpg

Deathly Hallows Part 1. They just didn’t get it right.


Favorite character? 

_20180524_1122011091155145.jpg

Hermione Granger. She never gives up, always fights back, is super intelligent and well, without her, the others would be long dead.


Least favorite/ most hated character? 

Least favorite: Rita Skeeter. How can one person be so annoying!

Most hated: Umbridge. No words. Everyone knows.


Favorite teacher at Hogwarts? 

_20180524_111142-1477694114.jpg

Minerva McGonagall. She is strict but also very kind-hearted. Harry had so much respect for her that when Carrow spat in her face, he was so enraged that he cast an Unforgivable Curse!


Least favorite teacher at Hogwarts? 

umbridge

This evil toad.


I tag!

YOU! If you’re a HP geek then I highly recommend doing it!

Easter Eggs!

Name a book that feels like a hidden gem!

switched

I went to the bookstore with very very little time on my hands, which is very rare. That day I felt like I HAD to take a book. And I saw the Trylle trilogy on a shelf. The cover and the summary on the back was so intriguing that I got it. Came home, read it and I couldn’t put it down!


Bloom!

A debut novel you loved!

catlinng's bane

This book was sent to me by Diana and I absolutely loved it!


Chocolate Bunny!

A book so good you didn’t want it to end!

trials of apollo cover

The narration is so hilarious! The struggles Apollo has after he is converted into a normal teenager are hilarious!


Cheep, cheep!

A book you bought for super cheap!

a pocket full of rye book cover.jpg

I bought this book at a sale for $1.50. In all of Agatha Christie’s books, this book along with a few others seem to the only ones which do not have a dark, mysterious and philosophical cover!


Jelly Beans!

A book that you thought was just so sweet!

p&p

A classic sweet book! (Yes, I finally read it!) Loved it!


Church

A book that changed your life!

The Harry Potter books changed my life. They introduced me to a whole new genre of books! And it just changed my life. I cannot put it in words how much these books mean to me…


Easter Basket!

A book filled with so many surprises!

Every single book!

Book Addiction Tag!

Book Addiction Tag!

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day! I saw this tag over at Siobhan’s blog and I just HAD to do it! Go and check out her blog for many such fun tags!

Meanwhile, my book review list is towering! As school JUST opened, I cannot find time to balance everything out! It’ll be okay in a week or two. So thank you, everyone, for waiting and being so supportive!

And also, HAPPY EASTER!! I’ll be sharing my Easter cheer in Sunday’s Easter Book Tag post, but it seemed a bit mean not to wish you’ll right now!


Book Addiction Tag


What Is the Longest Amount of Time You Can Comfortably Go without Picking Up a Book?

It is torture for me to go a long time without reading! I can go for 4 hours, tops!


How Many Books Do You Carry on Your Person (or Kindle) at Any One Time?

I am so scared of carrying a Kindle! It’s so big! So, I have a Kindle app on my phone. So, I’m basically carrying a mini library with me wherever I go! But I also like to carry a physical book with me at all times. It doesn’t matter whether or not I read it. I just like having a book with me!


Do You Keep Every Book You Buy/Receive or Are You Happy to Pass Them on to Make Space for More?

Ok. Confession: I hoard books. I am so protective of my books! I don’t care how much space they take, I’m keeping them! Call me crazy!


How Long Would You Spend in a Bookshop on a Standard Visit?

I can spend a day in a bookshop if I could! I normally spend 4 hours in a bookshop…that’s not much…right…?


How Much Time Per Day Do You Actually Spend Reading?

4 to 5 hours a day. I’d love to do nothing but read for a day someday.


What Is the Biggest Book (Page Count) You Have Finished Reading?

I think it would be the Trylle Trilogy. (3 in 1 )It has 1002 pages. But if I pick like one book it would be Arabian Nights, it has about 1300 pages.


Is There a Book You Had to Get Your Hands on Against All Odds (i.e., Searching Bookshops, Online Digging, Etc)?

Yes! I don’t know why, but I spent hours trying to find the hardcover version of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. And I was successful in my mission!


A Book You Struggled to Finish but Refused to DNF?

Agatha Christie. the thirteen problems. I read it in 6th grade. My English teacher used to tell me that once I read one Agatha Christie book, I would all of them And boy was she right!


What Are Three of Your Main Book Goals for 2019?

  1. Read as much as I can!
  2. DNF books as less as possible.
  3. Explore a new genre.

Have You Ever Had the Privilege of Converting Someone into a Reader (Maybe via Inspiration or Incessant Nagging)?

Oh, I nag people all right! But I am yet to convert someone into a reader! (I’m surrounded by idiots… that’s a Lion King reference… )  I won’t give up until I have!


Where Does the Task ‘Picking up a Book’ Appear on Your Daily To-Do List?

I counter this question with a question. Do you write, ” go to the bathroom” or “remember to breath” on your reading list? No! Reading is like that for me!


How Many Books Do You Reckon You Own in Total (Including Ebooks)?

Over 600. I have never counted it out, to be honest. But I’m sure it’s over 600. There are about 50 books I own that I haven’t read.


Approximately How Often Do You Bring Up Books in Conversation?

Whenever I can. Today, I brought up books twice!


Describe What Books Mean to You in Five Words.

My escape from this world.

Catling’s Bane||Diana Wallace Peach||Book Review||thebookofjess

Catling’s Bane||Diana Wallace Peach||Book Review||thebookofjess

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day! Today I am going to be reviewing Catling’s Bane by Diana Wallace Peach. This book, along with the other three in the series was sent to me by Diana Wallace Peach.


catlings bane


Book Name: Catling’s Bane 

Author: Diana Wallace Peach 

Genre:  YA, Fantasy, Paranormal 

Rating: 4.5/5 

Summary: I was introduced to a world which had flaws so similar to ours, it was hard for me to believe that it is fiction and not a story of some hidden country. 

In the city of Mur-Vallis live Farlanders who possess magical abilities connected to nature.  The Ellegeans establish an order where they are the ones who control society.  The Farlander’s magic was a threat to the Ellegeans and their system. Something had to be done. 

Every hanging day, the ones with magic who posed a threat to the Ellegeans were persecuted as a showcase of entertainment for the people. The Influencers’ Guild within the Ellegeans held control over the people’s emotions. The people had no control whatsoever over what they were feeling while their own family was being slaughtered. A mother could be grinning like a fool while her son was being put to death. 

All, except for Catling. Catling possessed a birthmark resembling a rose around her eye which allowed her to see and cut the threads of influence binding her and the people around her. Naturally, they want her dead. 


Ok. I’ll admit something. This book was not easy for me to read as it was very different from the books I read. But this book actually opened up a whole new horizon of books for me. The problems faced by the world are somewhat similar to our world. The people who posed a threat to the system were persecuted in this world. They were hushed up. Similar to our world, wouldn’t you say?

Thank you, Diana, for this opportunity! I really enjoyed reading it! ♥


Thank you for reading! Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you’ll! ♥ ♥

Also, so sorry for the long absence. My internet has not been stable here due to repairs and it won’t be stable until a few more days. Everything has been going on great. I managed to read 5 books before the 15th of April and I really hope to read at least 10 this month. Let’s see!

1. Which book, most recently, did you not finish?

 

p&plotr

Lord of the Rings and Pride and Prejudice.

I do not hate these books. They are amazing books. But right now, I am not in the mood for reading them. My temptation for YA books is higher right now. I will read them though! I promise!


2. Which book is your guilty pleasure?

switched

Switched by Amanda Hocking. You need to read it to find out! It’s a great book, but I didn’t expect it to be so intense…


3. Which book do you love to hate?

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. I have not read the book. This is because of three reasons: I am not interested in Norse Mythology as much I am interested in Greek Mythology. The cover does NOT appeal to me. My friend, who loves the book, is urging me to read it, but I really like to annoy her!


4. Which book would you throw into the sea?

Hmm…probably Twilight! The whole point of the book seems useless to me! (I’m sorry if you are a fan of the book!)


5. Which book have you read the most?

q2

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I have read it about 15 times I think…!


6. Which book would you hate to receive as a gift? 

I would be happy to receive any book as a gift! I’ll be in the seventh heaven of delight! It is the perfect gift anyone can give to me!

I wouldn’t hate it if someone gave me a book I’d already read, as a gift, but it would seem unnecessary and a waste. I would probably give it to someone who hasn’t read it.


7. Which book could you not live without? 

intex_aqua_pro_4g_20180712-224345-767666604.png

Ooh! There are so many! I would pick Harry Potter. It is my favorite book in the world. I just cannot live without it.

Seriously though, my blog should be about Harry Potter, considering how I mention it in every, dang post


8. Which book made you angriest?

moa.jpg

Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan.

I love the book. But in the end, he just plunges the two main characters into Tartarus! Just like that! Arrggghh! (It makes me sad and angry!)


9. Which book made you cry the most?

boy in the stripped pyjamas.jpg

Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne.

It’s set in WW2 and it’s a very sad story. I recommend reading the ending with a box of tissues.


10. Which book cover do you hate the most?

the little prince book review

The Little Prince. I love the book very much! It’s a beautiful book. But I have seen people interpreting it to be a children’s book by its cover. *cough* my classmates *cough*. The cover doesn’t do the book justice.

March Speculative Fiction Prompt ||Diana Wallace Peach||Her Dream||

March Speculative Fiction Prompt ||Diana Wallace Peach||Her Dream||

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day! At the beginning of this month, I saw a post over at Diana Wallace Peach’s . And she has a great way by which people can express their creativity.  She gives her readers an image every month and they can write a story or poem on it and link her and she will repost it on her blog. (I really hope I explained it right!) This month’s image was really appealing to me so I decided to do a post as well!


Here’s the image:

Her Dream 

People say she can’t do it. She should just give up now. There’s nothing anyone can do about it. he believed them too for a while. After all, how could she continue her dancing career with a transplanted hip? But no matter what she did, her mind was stuck on the same thought. “Why can’t I?”. Tonight her parents called her downstairs to talk about “what path she had to take?”. They didn’t even consider dancing. She couldn’t take it anymore. It was like all her welled up emotions burst inside of her. And she rushed out of the house and into the street. All was quiet and deserted. She kept on running. It seemed like hours. But finally, she slowed down and started walking. She felt oddly calm and relieved now. It was like the moon has injected new energy in her. She didn’t care what they said anymore. She would dance and prove them wrong.


Thank you so much for reading! Have an awesome day!

The Marvellous Music Tag

The Marvellous Music Tag

Hello everyone! Firstly, this is my 101st post!! Today I am going to be going to a tag at Sarah’s blog and really wanted to do it! I know this is not exactly “book related” but hey, it’s fun! Also, forgive me if you find that most of the answers are from The Greatest Showman. I watched the movie last week and I am obsessed with the songs!


Rules:

1) Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their blog.

2) Share the tag graphic.

3) Link to the original blogs (i.e. Scribes & Archers and Of Rainy Days and Stardust Veins)

4) Answer the questions (links to the songs are optional)

5) Tag 5 bloggers.


The Tag Graphic.


What is your favorite song?

A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman. I watched the movie recently and I absolutely love it! This song is just…wow!


What song defines you as a person?

Who I am by Natasha Bedingfield. I heard this song when I was 11. It got me to think who I was? What did I like? Pretty deep thoughts for an eleven-year-old. Now I’m almost 15 and I know who I am and what I can do. So, this song doesn’t really define me as a person but because of this song, I knew who I was. (It’s okay if you didn’t understand! It’s pretty messed up!)


What song defines who you want to be as a person?

This is Me from The Greatest Showman. (Yes, I am obsessed with the songs.)

The way they accept who they are and don’t care what others think is a very courageous thing to do and something that very few can.


What is your favorite song from a musical?

Somebody from Lemonade Mouth. This is a Disney movie. I watched it in 2011 and re-watched it last year and it’s my favorite song from any musical.


What is a song that you can’t help but love?

Never Enough from The Greatest Showman. The high notes kill my ears every single time but I still love it.


What’s one song you can’t help but dance to? 

I know my answers are mostly from The Greatest Showman but seriously I love the movie.

The Greatest Show from the Greatest Showman.


What’s one song you can’t help but sing to?

Double double toil and trouble from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban!


What is a song that reminds you of a book/series you love?

Neverland by Zendaya reminds me of Peter Pan. I searched “Peter Pan songs” a while back and I simply loved this song!


What is a song that makes you cry?

There is no such song. Sorry, but if you would have asked which book made me cry, I would have a freaking 50-page list!

5 W’s Book Tag!

5 W’s Book Tag!

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re all having a great day! I am much better. But I will need to eat meds for the next month or so :/. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive! THANK YOU!

Today I will be doing a Book Tag on Sophie‘s blog quite a time ago and I had decided to do it but didn’t get any time. I am very excited to do this tag!


5 W's Book Tag


1) WHO? Who is an author you’d love to have one on one with?

I’d love to have a one on one with J.K.Rowling! My favorite book series is HP and I would go CRAZY if I met the person who wrote it!!!

I would also like to meet Rick Riordan or Eoin Colfer (Authors who wrote Percy Jackson and Artemis Fowl respectively).


2) WHAT? What genre or style do you most gravitate to?

I gravitate towards YA, fantasy, adventure, paranormal, fictional, biographies and history. I am open to all genres, which I wasn’t until a few months ago. But now, I am open to all genres, however, I do tend to gravitate towards the genres I mentioned above.


3) WHERE? Where do you prefer to read?

I prefer to read in my room. On the bed, chair, floor. ANYWHERE IN MY ROOM. I also read at school during recess and free periods. Like, come on, I’m getting EXTRA time to read. Like I’m gonna give that up!


4) WHEN? What time of the day do you prefer to read?

Anytime. I am happy to be able to read. If I HAD to pick, I’d pick night, mainly because it’s quiet and no one will disturb me!


5) WHY? Why is your favorite book?

My favorite book series is Harry Potter. But an individual favorite book… How can I pick!?!?!

Ok…Philosopher’s Stone. This would be because it is the book which introduced me to Harry Potter. After reading this book series my life changed. So yeah. 🙂


BONUS! How do you go about selecting what you’ll read next?

Hmmm… I search for books on the internet. Go to the bookstore or download the e-book. I usually read series or at least trilogies. Duologies are also okay. But I think that a single book for the characters is too little. Basically, I just go with gut feeling. There’s no particular method.

This song is sung by the current Disney channel stars, although there are one or two who just appeared and did not sing. Anyways, this song is originally from the Disney Channel show named Ravens Home, sequel of That’s so Raven. It is a song about girl power. It tells us that girls can make be legends as much as boys can. Its a great song and I must have heard it a thousand times already! (Kidding obviously! I have heard it about 5 or 6 times.)


I hope you’ll liked the song. Let me know in the comments if you did or if you have heard it before.


Thank you for reading! Have an amazing day!

Second Star to the Right – Jonatha Brooke

The second star to the right

Shines in the night for you

To tell you that the dreams you plan

Really can come true

The second star to the right

Shines with a light that’s rare

And if it’s Never Land you need

Its light will lead you there

Twinkle, twinkle little star

So I’ll know where you are

Gleaming in the skies above

Lead me to the land I dreamed of

And when our journey is through

Each time we say Goodnight

We’ll thank the little star that shines

The second from the right


I have been a fan of Peter Pan since forever! I have begged God to send me to Neverland! I still do.  ANYWAYS, I heard this song a couple of days ago and I really liked it as when I was small I used to look at the stars whenever I got the chance wondering where “Peter Pan’s star” is. This song reminds me of so may memories and is really special to me.


I hope you’ll liked the song. Let me know in the comments if you did or if you were a Peter Pan fan! I still am! 


Thank you for reading and have a great day!! 🙂


 

Blogger Recognition Award

Blogger Recognition Award

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a good day! I was nominated by Racheal. Do checkout her blog.


THE RULES:

  • Thank the blogger that nominated you and give a link to their site.
  • Do a post to show your award
  • Give a summary of how your blog started
  • Give two pieces of advice for any new bloggers
  • Select at least 15 other bloggers for this award
  • Let each nominee know you’ve nominated them and give a link to your post

How I started blogging?

Well, there couldn’t be a more easier question! Haha, just kidding! This is a pretty difficult question but I think I know the answer to it. I have loved books since the past few years. I must have read at least two thousand books in the past 4 years. When I read, my thoughts, my visions about the book come in my mind and sometimes I go into the book, I am a character in the book and I have a backstory and I am closely related to the plot. I love reading for the joy of it. Many people in my school maybe good at academics, at sports, dance, music. But NOBODY reads books for the joy of reading, the way I do. Someone may read it will improve their vocabulary, some to boast that they read. When I started blogging, I didn’t know what to write. I thought that nobody would read what I write, people may mock me, I was very insecure. I started to write in a very insecure way. If you’ll read my earlier posts, you’ll see. I started my blog in 2016 November and I never got serious with it. In April 2018, I was not insecure anymore. I don’t know how it came about, but I became more free with what I write. I expressed my views on books and recently I have started reviewing the books I read. I met like minded people on WordPress and I was so happy to have discovered a place where I wasn’t the only bookworm. I hope that when people read my posts, they’ll see that reading is also done just for the joy of reading.


TWO PIECES OF ADVICE FOR NEW BLOGGERS. 

  1. Don’t give up. I stared my blog and gave it up for almost a year. I did it because I was discouraged in school. Don’t let that happen to you. Don’t listen to people who are trying to bring you down. Just remember that the people who are trying to bring you down are already below you.
  2. Always say what is on your mind. Don’t be afraid people will mock you, they won’t. If they do, well then, they are not worthy to read your posts. But always keep in mind the mockery and advice are two different things. People may tell you how you can make your blog better. Listen to them. Never be afraid.

Smile – Sabrina Carpenter 

Things aren’t going your way
And it’s written all over your face
And you’re not even looking for the better days
‘Cause you think that there’s nothing left, no

But you can feel the sun
You can hear the wind blow
It’s right outside of your window
There’s so many reasons for you to be happy
Its all up to you
So don’t be stupid
It’s always worse in your head
So just take a second

To breathe
Take in what you see
Who knows what you’ll find
In this beautiful life
That gives you a reason to smile
You smile
I smile
We smile

You wake up to another day
Another shot at making your vibe change
And if you didn’t smile yesterday
Here’s a chance
Here’s your moment, yeah

You can feel the sun
You can hear the wind blow
It’s right outside of your window
There’s so many reasons for you to be happy
Its all up to you
So don’t be stupid
It’s always worse in your head
So just take a second

To breathe
Take in what you see
Who knows what you’ll find
In this beautiful life
That gives you a reason to smile
You smile
I smile
We smile

When you’re down (Smile)
Up (Smile)
When you’re out (Smile)
When you’re on top (Smile)
Low (Smile)
Whenever just (Smile)

Breathe
Take in what you see
Who knows what you’ll find
In this beautiful life
That gives you a reason to smile
You smile
I smile
We smile

Breathe
(You can feel the sun, you can hear the wind blow)
Take in what you see
(You can feel the sun, you can hear the wind blow)
Who knows what you’ll find
(You can feel the sun, you can hear the wind blow)
In this beautiful life
(You can feel the sun, you can hear the wind blow)
That gives you a reason to

Currently Reading Book Tag

Currently Reading Book Tag

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a good day! Today I am going to do the Currently Reading Book Tag which I saw at Boston Book Reader and I thought it’d be fun to do!


HOW MANY BOOKS DO YOU USUALLY READ AT ONCE?

I read about 3 or 4 books at once. As of now I am reading 6 books.


DO YOU EVER SWITCH BOOKMARKS WHILE YOU’RE PARTWAY THROUGH A BOOK?

I read e-books and it is rather rare that I read paperback or hardback books. But, I do own a large collection of paperback and hardback books and I have a bookmark for each of them. I generally do not lose bookmarks.


WHERE DO YOU KEEP THE BOOK(s) YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING?

I keep them on my bedside cabinet or on my desk.


WHAT TIME OF THE DAY DO YOU SPEND THE MOST TIME READING?

Hmm… that’s a difficult question. Lets see, on holidays I read in the morning and on school days I read in the afternoon. And I also read at night for half an hour to help me sleep regardless of school or no school!


HOW LONG DO YOU TYPICALLY READ IN ONE SITTING?

I read about 30 mins in one sitting. It’s just impossible to tear me apart from my book before that…(all my fellow bookworms will understand…)


DO YOU READ HARDBACKS WITH THE DUST JACKET ON OR OFF?

I read hardbacks with the dust jacket off. Otherwise it just keeps on slipping away!


WHAT POSITION DO YOU MAINLY READ?

I usually read in a sitting or half-sitting position.


 

I TAG EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO PLAY!


I hope you’ll like my answers. Let me know in the comments section if you did or if you can relate to them.


Thank you for reading! Have a great day! 🙂

Without music life would be a mistake. 

Friedrich Nietzsche

I chose this quote because I think the whole world can relate to this. Everyone listens to music, whether it be classical or pop or rock! Every one has a favorite song. Listening to music can improve your mood. I cannot even imagine how sad the world would be without music.

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our ENEMIES, but just as much to stand up to our FRIENDS.  

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE.

Now, you may think I have chosen this quote because I am a MAJOR Potterhead (I am!) but that is not the reason I chose this quote. I chose this quote because I think it is true in real life as well. When we see that someone is our enemy, we know that that person is wrong and in the end you gotta stand up to him. But, if you’re friend is doing something wrong then, you’re stuck in the middle. You do not know whether you should take your friends side or you should do what’s right! If you choose to stand up to your friend then it takes a lot of courage to do so as he has been with you in many situations. You are aware that you may be breaking your friendship forever. So, it takes perhaps all the courage you have to stand up to your friend.

“WHEN YOU’RE A GOD AGAIN REMEMBER, REMEMBER WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE HUMAN”

                                                                                   -JASON GRACE 

This quote is from the series The Trials of Apollo (The Burning Maze) by Rick Riordan.

Those who have read Percy Jackson will know that demigods live a very dangerous live! Gods send them on dangerous quests. Imagine having to retrieve Zeus’ lightning bolt!

In this book series Apollo is turned into a demigod by Zeus for bad behavior. ( Please don’t blast me Lord Apollo!) Now, as Apollo struggles to become a God again, he realizes that demigods live under constant danger and is sorry for all those times he sent demigods on such quests. Jason Grace, a very important character in The Heroes of Olympus series, reminds the former God of this. Sadly, Jason dies in this book :(.
