Hi guys! Unfortunately, the post I’m putting up today is not the post I had planned for. I was scheduled to put up a fun discussion post about some popular YA characters and their Zodiac houses yesterday. But due to a particularly evil stroke of misfortune, WordPress completely freaked out on me and my blog shut down. I obviously was able to get it running again, but my entire post was deleted along with my July Wrap-Up. I did think about attempting to recreate my original Zodiac post, but it took me at least 4 hours of laborious researching and formatting and I just can’t bring myself to do it all again. So instead I’m doing just a simple spotlight post with the giveaway at the end! If you guys wanna comment some of your favorite characters and what you think their Zodiac houses would be, that would honestly make my day! I will share with you my favorite character ever that I am 100% confident of what his house is:
Last year, before I started this blog, I saw some readers on bookstagram and Twitter participating in #ARCAugust. I thought it was pretty cool to have so many ARCs that you needed a whole month dedicated to reading them. Little did I know, a year later I’d be in that exact situation (I have Netgalley to thank for that)!
Hello bookworms! Today I’m trying out a new meme that I was kindly introduced to through Twitter – Trope Tuesdays! Created by Lacy Literacy, the goal is to discuss one trope that you love, hate, or have any real thoughts on. Lately the one trope that I’ve been quite annoyed by is insta-love. So buckle up, and prepare for a ranty post my friends!
Hey guys! Today I’m back with my second #ARCstravaganza post, a weekly meme hosted by YA and Wine. Every Monday you post about an ARC you received that you’re excited about, either in a blog post or bookstagram photo (although I think starting in August it will just be on bookstagram). Each month, one participant will win a physical copy of an upcoming YA novel!
With the recent announcement of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie, and the controversy surrounding it, a discussion post idea that I had a looong time ago resurfaced. Despite being a veracious member of the 21st century fandom culture, I do not like movie adaptations of books. Or TV ones, for that matter. In fact, I spend a considerable amount of energy trying to avoid them (and the resulting hype) at all costs.
Let’s put it this way. If my favorite books of all-time, the Grisha trilogy and Six of Crows duology, were ever optioned for the big screen, I honestly would be upset. Mad, even. I know, all you guys are looking at me like I’m crazy, but I’m here today to explain why I really really don’t like movie adaptations. Feel free at the end to tell me all the reasons you love them, I’m sure I’m in the minority when it comes to this topic!
