I saw the title of this tag and knew I had to do before I’d even watched the video. (Video I saw was this one by LilyCReads, the original by Okay So Booksically is here. I may now need to watch a lot of his videos.) I really shouldn’t be doing tags I haven’t been tagged for when I’ve still not done so many that I have been tagged for, but I am a law unto myself so…
Question 1: Tell Us About Your User / Blog / Channel Name and Your Real Name.
My blog is primarily about books but I do sometimes post about stuff I’ve been getting up to. I usually try and link it back to books though. I also have a card-making blog (which is more or less abandoned) and a new blog about beauty/fashion etc.
I’ve decided to start doing monthly posts about the different things I bought or received as gifts each month. I know a lot of people do monthly book hauls but I don’t always let myself buy lots of books so I thought this might be interesting.
I did buy some books in August:
I had a lovely, fun Saturday! I met up with some friends for a bar crawl around Covent Garden, London. We booked the Ice Bar and I got to eat lobster for the first time in ages, which was probably my favourite part of the day… I love food.
GUYS GUYS GUYS THERE’S A POKEMON GO BOOK TAG. LOOK HERE IT IS.
If you’ve read my last few posts, you might have noticed I’m a little obsessed with Pokemon at the moment. I mean, I’ve always been obsessed with Pokemon – it was all-encompassing in my childhood, even more so than Harry Potter – but right now, with Pokemon Go taking over the world, my obsession has come back with a vengeance.
I haven’t been tagged for this but when I saw it on Nazahet’s blog, Read Diverse Books, I obviously had to do it! It was originally created by Aentee at Read at Midnight (she also created the awesome graphics for this tag!).
I haven’t been tagged for this but saw Jessica at The Awkward Book Blogger‘s post and decided to join in the fun.
1. BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2016?
Wonder by R. J. Palacio.
Hi all! I’ve been so quiet on here…
You’re probably sick of my excuses about a reading slump, but seriously, it’s really bad! I do think I’m coming out of it a bit though as I’ve picked up Stormbird by Conn Igguldsen and seem to be getting on OK. I thought, though, that I’d participate in this year’s BookTubeAThon to help me kick it.
Also, I’ve been playing Pokemon Go and that doesn’t leave much time for reading.
So, apologies in advance, because this month I have been a piss-poor bookaholic.
I think I was all booked-out after a very successful reading month in May, and for most of this month I’ve been avoiding books completely (except I’m rereading Deathly Hallows at the mo and LOVING it). (They’ve just come back from Godric’s Hollow. It was AWESOME.)
So in June, I read a meagre total of… 4 books!
1. Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness.
