Why I Never Reread Books

Hello, lovelies! I know I’ve been a bit inactive on here, I’m still struggling with answering to your comments and I have no idea when I’m going to finally blog-hop. It’s mostly because I’m writing my thesis for college and I’m also trying to get ahead on some projects. It’s a bit hectic, I hope you’ll understand.

I’m back with another discussion about my reading habits and this time we’ll talk about how I’m a bookish weirdo that never rereads. I know I’ve mentioned it briefly in certain comments or posts, but I never talked about it more and what’s behind it. So here we go…

My Tentative Summer TBR

Hey, lovelies! I know that it might be a little late to post this, but my summer break started in July. I have an excuse (or so I hope) for making this post now. I’ve been in many reading slumps this year and I really hope I’ll have a better luck this summer, this list will hopefully motivate me for this task!

If you’ve known me and my blog for a while, you probably know that I’m a mood reader – that’s why this TBR is only going to be tentative. I don’t know if I’ll read anything from this list, but I really hope so! If you’ve read any of the books on this list and loved them, make sure to hype them in the comments, that way I might actually get to them!

Let’s get right into this TBR list!

Discussion : Am I Too Obsessed With Reading?

fd99d926r

Hello, everyone! I think you’re all thinking I’m a bit out of my mind as you’re reading this title… I mean, I’m a reader, I’m a book blogger, that’s basically our thing – obsessing over books. But I am here to ask the right questions – am I too obsessed with books? Did I somehow cross the line between what’s normal for any bookworm and reading has taken over my life completely? Maybe. 

This post is totally inspired by everyone in my life. By my cousin who always complains about her older cousin that stays way too much on that ‘annoying’ blog instead of playing with her (forgive her, she’s not even 10 years old yet, she doesn’t understand), by my ex-friend who told me that I’d probably bring a book even to a date (PROBABLY AND I WOULD REGRET NOTHING) and ultimately by my parents, who are always creative about coming up with activities that can get me to do anything else besides reading (I love you, but we all know it’s not working).

ARC Review : I Was Born For This

I want to thank HarperCollins Children’s Books for providing me with this ARC! This hadn’t influenced my rating or review in any way.

This is the most lovely book I’ve read in a while, it’s also the first book written by Alice Oseman that I’ve ever read and it really didn’t disappoint. Which is a huge thing considering how huge my expectations were!

First of all, I want to applaud the amount of research that went into this book in order to write those amazingly diverse characters in a very authentic way. It was flawless.

The female protagonist, Angel, is muslim, while the male protagonist, Jimmy is mixed race, trans and gay. Rowan is Nigerian. Lister (the cutest boy ever) is bi and also struggles with alcoholism.

There were so many things being tackled in I Was Born For This, for example the stereotype that bisexuals sleep with everyone, which was slammed (thankfully) in a grand way here.

The Tolkien Lover Book Tag

fd9e85fdddeb2d1d30083ab1a309d926t

Hello, everyone! I’m here with a book tag because I haven’t done one in a while and I’m a bit in a blogging slump as I’ve mentioned before – I’ve been trying to write two reviews for a while now without being able to (i’m dying over here, please someone ghost-write for me) – therefore, I’ll fangirl about Tolkien for now and hope for the best!

This book tag was created by Kristen Kieffer and I wasn’t tagged by anyone, I’m doing this out of the pure need to fangirl, bye. 

Let’s get into the questions!
