MONDAY 11

The Bourne Identity (Jason Bourne, #1)

8:05 AM

It’s a new day and it’s a new week of the Marvel-A-Thon! Last night I ended up only getting to page 30 of Bad Romance but so far I am loving it. I then decided to do something completely out of my norm, and watched The Bourne Identity, which as it turns out, I really enjoyed. So, last night I also picked up the book to see if I could keep that good luck going, and so far I’m roughly 5 chapters in (I’m listening on audio) and I’m really liking it.

4:53 PM

I have had a pretty meh day so far, mostly I’ve just been really deflated and low on energy so I haven’t really done anything of substance. The only good thing I can say that I’ve done is that I’m pretty much halfway through The Bourne Identity, though I am really questioning why I thought it would be a good idea to read an almost 600-page book in a readathon???

TUESDAY 12

9:07 AM

I haven’t read anything so far today and I’m only roughly 9/22 hours into Bourne. But, I think I’m just going to spend my day trying to control my anxiety and blogging since I’ve missed so much time due to wifi-deprivation (it’s a thing, right?)

WEDNESDAY 13

11:58 AM

So far today I’ve been decently productive. I’ve baked some cookies, listened to some more of Bourne, made tonight’s dinner and outlined a blog post or two.

I am hoping to finish Bourne tonight, or at least get really close to the end. I didn’t get much of anything done yesterday, but I did plan my uni classes which was pretty intense for me. I will be starting Uni in July so no pressure but I am feeling pretty pressured. Yesterday I was pretty anxious so all I really did was sort out some Uni stuff and watch Tangled (because I’m an adult and an amateur Disney fan).

10:32 PM

I finally finished The Bourne Identity! Maybe now I can finally pick up a new book!

THURSDAY 14

What even is reading. Ugh, I did everything except pick up a book today. Baking? Check. Pasta? Check. All the cooking? Check. Wash dog? Check.

FRIDAY 15

I am a terrible blogger it’s official. I have no blogging mojo and no will to read. Although, I do have a review scheduled for Final Draft in a couple of days so I think I’ll try to chill and start reading the book. Wish me luck (send help).

SATURDAY 16

Final Draft

So, Final Draft was a bust. I got roughly 32% of the way in before putting it down and just never picking it back up. Im 99.6% sure I’m in a reading slump but I’m trying to push through it.

I ended up seeing The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society at the cinemas with my mum and LOVING IT so I picked the book up at the shop while I was there and I’m really hoping to love it just as much as every else. *fingers and toes crossed*

SUNDAY 17

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

11:31 AM

I am feeling thoroughly underwhelmed by this week. I loved week one but so far I have only managed to read one more book and to then get myself into a reading slump. I am really loving Guernsey though, so I’m hoping to finish it today and then to hopefully keep my momentum going with a comic later tonight. Either way, a slump is a slump and hopefully, next week will be more successful.

8:44 PM

I just finished Guernsey and I loved it! I will say that I loved the movie just a little bit more, but it was a wonderful book either way! I don’t think this fits any challenges, but I’m glad I read it nonetheless. I’m going to bed now because Winter exhausts me but, I am hoping to pick up a comic or two tomorrow to hopefully kick my *ss into gear with phase 2!

RECOMMENDING BOOKS I DON’T LIKE // I’ve gone nuts.

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with a new type of book recommendation. I didn’t feel like getting super negative today so I thought I might put a twist on the whole “Popular books I hated” type of post. Today, I’m going to try my hand at being a nice person… and I’m going to recommend books I don’t like! 

Click on the covers to go to the Goodreads pages!

a books Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)   They Both Die at the End   Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal   172 Hours on the Moon

ILLUMINAE – AMIE KAUFMAN & JAY KRISTOFF

  • Really interesting storytelling technique
  • Despite the size, it’s a quick read
  • Everyone loves the AI??
  • Will make you cry apparently?

THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END – ADAM SILVERA

  • In true Silvera style, this is depressing af
  • Awesome cover
  • The title
  • Diverse characters

MS MARVEL – G. WILLOW WILSON & ADRIAN ALPHONA

  • Pakistani American Muslim mc
  • Great art style & colouring
  • Strong female mc
  • Really fun to start off with if you aren’t into comics but plan on continuing the series (not everything is explained in vol 1)

172 HOURS ON THE MOON – JOHAN HARSTAD

  • The blurb says this a “terrifying thriller for young adult fans of The Martian and paranormal space adventure…” I disagree, I think this a good place to start if you’re trying to get into sci-fi or YA horror, but it’s definitely nothing like The Martian.
  • It’s a translated work
  • It’s a quick and interesting read if you’re looking for a bit of a scare

flowerdivider

a books To Kill a Kingdom   A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1)   Unhooked   Carry On

TO KILL A KINGDOM – ALEXANDRA CHRISTO

UNHOOKED – LISA MAXWELL

  • An interesting view on Neverland lore
  • Very descriptive
  • Finally, a book that admits Tinkerbell is kinda sucky
  • Captin Hook 👌👌👌
  • Evil Pan 👌👌👌

CARRY ON – RAINBOW ROWELL

  • I can’t believe I am here recommending this book. I hate Carry On and I feel no shame. But… I do understand why others do like it.
  • It’s got an interesting m/m romance
  • It’s heavily based on the HP series, so it’s got that nostalgia factor
  • There’s a guy named Basil, and I love that
  • There’s weird magic – you will love it or you will hate, there is no in between
  • Draco/Harry hate-to-love romance

Book Adaptations & Why I Love Them!

WHAT WHAT THAT DEMON BLOGGER IS BACK WITH ANOTHER PROBABLY TOO OPINIONATED DISCUSSION!!

Cool, so now that that’s out of the way… Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with a new discussion in which I blab on about why I love book adaptations!

flowerdivider

ADAPTATIONS I LOVE

a books books and booksImage result for simon vs the homosapien agenda movie poster   Image result for jurassic park movie poster original   Image result for spider-man: homecoming

I love book adaptations and I have no shame about it, but I know that quite a lot of people are not totally fond of them. You can read about me defending adaptations against the haters here.

So, why do I love book adaptations and feel the need to defend them against the haters? (probably because a defence is the best offence)

  • They bring your faves to life & it can also bring amazing rep that you might not usually get on screen, to the screen. For example, I never thought I would be able to see a high school “rom-com” style movie about a gay kid but hey, 20-gay-teen is real.

 

  • Without book adaptations, we wouldn’t have Gene Wilder’s take on Willy Wonka and quite frankly the world would be a darker place without that movie. But, I guess, going by that logic, maybe we do live in a certain hell because we have to deal with the monstrosity that is Where The Wild Things Are. Honestly, whoever made that movie should go sit in a corner and think about what they’ve done.

 

  • Also, just straight up, if we didn’t have adaptations, the MCU wouldn’t exist and neither would the DCEU (though, I wouldn’t exactly be complaining about that one). We would have no superhero stories – which means no 60’s Batman and no emo Peter Parker dancing in the street and now I’m gonna cry, you guys.

 

  • I love seeing my favourite stories told on screen (tv, mini-series or movies), whether the adaptation is good or not. I love that someone thought a book was good enough to bring it to the big screen, imagine being that author and getting that call??? The excitement!

 

Basically, I love adaptations and I wish more of the reading community would too!

ADAPTATIONS I’M EXCITED ABOUT

READING ALL THE BOOKS! + DOES IT REALLY MATTER??

Why does reading all the books really matter? Does it really matter? Why should we care if we read one book in a year, or 200 books in a year or nothing in a lifetime? Does reading all the books help us or are we just consuming books at a ridiculous rate and then not retaining any of the information?

Why are we always feeling to read more and to read faster?

flowerdivider

BOOKS I’VE READ RECENTLY

books books andMoon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Vol. 2: Cosmic Cooties   Giant Days, Vol. 1 (Giant Days, #1)   Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1)   The Song of Achilles   The Bourne Identity (Jason Bourne, #1)

So, does reading a copious amount of books per month or year really matter? Why do we push ourselves to read more and to read faster? Is it important or are we just trying to meet a number? If we read too much and too quickly aren’t we more likely just to find more duds than favourites, and to forget characters and plot at a faster rate?

flowerdivider

BOOKS I PLAN ON READING SOON

books books anBad Romance   Giant Days   Final Draft   Elementals: Ice Wolves   Jane Eyre

is it because we want to read all the stories we possibly can or because it’s a competition and we must win??? Are we all just trying to meet our Goodreads goal (even though so many people, including myself, made it a goal of 1 this year)??? Or are we all secretly competing with each other???

Why is it so important to so many readers that we read as many books as we possibly can in our lifetimes or in a year? Should we be spending less time worrying about our book count for the year? Or, should we be trying to read faster?

flowerdivider

I think reading is a great skill and an even better resource, but I also think that as a bookish community we’re all slightly obsessed with reading too. I think we’re all crazy about the idea of being constantly reading and constantly moving onto a new book. I don’t know about you, but for a while, I’ve been at the point where I feel guilty about not picking a book up. And, I’m sick of it. I’m a reader, I mean, hell I run a book blog! But, that doesn’t mean I have to be constantly reading and constantly reading the newest releases. I love reading and I will always be a reader, but sometimes I think we all just need a break and to learn to step away. Reading should be a hobby (and even a profession/career path) but never a chore or something to stress over.

COMIC ROUNDUP 3.0 // Giant Days + Devil Dinosaurs???

I’m bringing my Comic Roundup feature back *cheers by myself* I really like to talk about comics on my blog but I rarely do unless I have a specific post related to comics, much like this series. So, I figured since I know that some of you guys do enjoy comics and that you appreciate recommendations I might bring this post back. 

I don’t know if I’ll bring this back officially because no one ever really used to read the previous instalments, but I really just felt like talking about comics today so here we are I guess.

Let me know if you would be interested in me talking about comics more often in this type of format!

Giant Days, Vol. 1 (Giant Days, #1)

GIANT DAYS VOL 1

★★★☆☆

So, I have conflicting feelings about this one! It took me two days to get through and on each day, I reacted differently.

Day one: I got half way through and was feeling pretty meh. Even though, this is a visual story (comic) I was still having trouble differentiating the characters and getting into the story.

Day two: I really enjoyed it. I was laugjing while I read it and having more fun as I read it. Still having the same problem with the characters though.

Interestingly enough, and I’ll talk about this more in my review, I have the same problem with the novelisation of this series (Coming out in August). I will definitely be trying out Vol 2 bcause I want to see why everyone raves about this series, but I won’t be going in with high hopes.

flowerdivider

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Vol. 1: BFF★★★★★

MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR VOL 1

I loved this and I am so glad I read it! This is a wonderful comic series about a beautiful scientist protag and her beautiful devil dinosaur bff kicking ass and taking names. I really loved this because it focuses on Lunella, a nine year old genius girl, and it really goes into how it’s completely okay to be smart and how adults don’t always know or understand everything, and kids have brains too! Also, there’s a dinosaur and I love him and I’m pretty sure I would kill for him #noragrets

flowerdivider

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Vol. 2: Cosmic Cooties

★★★★☆

MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR VOL 2

I love this so much holy hell. My actual rating is a 4.5/5 but, I absolutely loved this one! These comics are so much fun and really quick reads for me. I actually managed to read the whole things while I waited for a batch of cookies to bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Lunella is a brilliant mc and you guys, I just love dinosaurs so so much.

If you enjoy a really fun and intelligent mc with a beautiful and very red side-kick (who also happens to be a dinosaur) then this is the comic series for you! I honestly wish I had volume 3 with me, but unfortunately, my library doesn’t understand the importance of me being happy. Should I bribe the library staff? Is it wrong to bribe library staff?

SERIES WORTH RE-READING

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with some more recommendations! I don’t think I’ve ever done this before so I thought I would try something different and recommend some series worth a re-read! I’ve chosen not to include Harry Potter or Percy Jackson because I thought they were too obvious, so hopefully, you guys will like these other series too!

Click on the covers to go to the Goodreads pages!

Completed Series

 books book books The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1)  The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)  The Golden Door (The Three Doors Trilogy, #1)

MAGNUS CHASE TRILOGY 3/3

I love this trilogy and I have no shame. I’ll admit that I haven’t actually re-read this trilogy but, I d plan on re-reading it next year. Honestly, I’m adding it to this list, based on the fact that every Riordan book is worth re-reading and because I’ve had to actually stop myself from re-reading this trilogy every month since I finished it.

THE RAVEN CYCLE 4/4

I have re-read all the books in this series apart from The Raven King (book 4). This is one of those series where you pick up something new upon each re-read so, I think it is definitely worth it! I love books like this, where you are constantly learning something new about the characters or plot, I think it makes the experience even more fun!

THE DOORS TRILOGY 3/3

I had to add this trilogy because when do I not recommend these books (and this author, in general). I have a goal to re-read this trilogy every year until I get to busy to, it’s not a fancy goal but subconsciously it’s just something I want to do. I feel like the year I stop re-reading these books will be the year Earth burns to a crust and whatever’s left of my own goodness evaporates, but I’m not being dramatic or anything. Seriously, I love this series and it honestly just makes me so sad to see how few people have actually read it.

Unfinished Series

 books book books Caraval (Caraval, #1)  I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 1: Madly Ever After  Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1)

CARAVAL – 2/3 published

So far I’ve read Caraval 3 times and Legendary once though I can see myself re-reading it many more times in the future. This series has amazing writing and is full of twists and turns so that it’s even more fun when you re-read it! I already can’t wait for book 3 to come out so I can see how this trilogy comes to a close!

I HATE FAIRYLAND – 3/? published

This series is hilarious. It’s incredibly violent and as you can see y the cover, so bright! The colouring in this comic is completely different to what you would expect considering the main character is a psycho serial killer in a land of monsters and manipulative fairies. This series is brilliant and I will read pretty much anything Skottie Young illustrates and I hope you all decide to pick this one up!

STALKING JACK THE RIPPER – 2/4 published

If you know me at all, you already know that I love this series probably too much, especially considering there are only two books. Either way, Hunting Prince Dracula is one of my favourite books in all existence and I am so happy that it exists but so sad that more people haven’t read it. The mystery is amazing, the romance will have you swooning and the banter will leave you cackling.

MARVEL-A-THON UPDATE WEEK ONE

Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with my “live” “week 1” update for Jamishelves’ Marvel-A-Thon! I haven’t done one of these for a while but so far I’m feeling pretty confident, and I hope you guys enjoyreading my progress. I feel like so far this readathon has really pushed me to pick up different types of stories that I probably would’ve pushed back and not picked up for years, so thanks Jamieson!

Marvel-A-Thon was created by Jamieson over at Jamishelves and you should all bow down to her because she is amazing and I love her for taking so much time to make this readathon!

FRIDAY JUNE 1

Caraval (Caraval, #1)

9 AM

OKay, so I am already moving off my tbr, but I’m sick and not really in the mood for anything much at the moment, so I think I’ll listen to Caraval while I play some Solitaire or write a blog post. I’m a bit sick at the moment and I should be going on a holiday (omg, what is this unheard of word???) at the end of the month so I’m trying to get ahead of my blogging schedule for once in my life.

11:27 AM

Caraval, Chapter 35

I’m almost finished Caraval and now I’ve officially written some more blog posts. Apparently being confined to a bed is great for writing posts. I just finished writing my review of Undead Girl Gang and oh, boy did I not like that book! I think I’ll try and write some more recommendations now, as I need a bit of a pick me up and they are my favourite post to write!

12:35 PM

Whoop whoop! First book down! I think I’ll count this as the Iron Man challenge, first book in a series. Honestly, I really want to pick up Legendary (the sequel) but it doesn’t fit into any of the challenges so I might have to pick up something else or just not count Legendary towards a challenge!

SATURDAY JUNE 2

Legendary (Caraval, #2)

2:35 PM

So, it’s day two of the month and I am well and truly sick! I ended up feeling pretty mentally and physically exhausted last night so I didn’t do any more reading but, I watched the 2015 Cinderella and was asleep by 10pm.

Today has pretty much been a similar story, I’ve hung out with the dog most of the day and exhausted half my tissue supply. I am starting my audiobook for Legendary as I write this but I think my main goal for today will be to try and make my throat better, so I can talk more easily.

8:39 PM

I just finished up re-watching The Princess Bride with the fam while I wrote some blog posts. It was so much fun to watch that movie again. I haven’t watched it in so long and I forgot how ridiculously hilarious it is! In terms of Legendary, I am roughly 12 chapters in and really enjoying it!

SUNDAY JUNE 3

11:17 AM

I know it’s getting pretty late now, but I swear I’ve been up since at least 8 this morning. I’ve had my porridge and I’m currently listening to some more of Legendary and taking advantage of the good blogging mood I’m in!

1:55 PM

Legendary is taking me a bit longer to read than I originally assumed, but I am still really enjoying it. So, I think I might push the rules a bit and include it as my Hulk challenge, green on the cover. I’m going to try and finish it by the end of the day but I have no idea if that’s going to happen!

MONDAY JUNE 4

The Song of Achilles

11:28 AM

So, I have been up since 7:30 this morning but of course, I am only just updating you guys now. Last night, I finished Legendary and I predicted the ending from pretty far away but who cares because I loved it. Also, guess who finally read something off her tbr! I also read volume 1 of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and loved it probably too much.

I started off my morning by baking cookies and listening to The Song of Achilles and while they were in the oven I ended up reading Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur Vol 2, which I finished and also really loved.

I think I’ll count Moon Girl V1 towards my Iron Man 2 prompt because apparently the world is full of buzz kills and I think Vol 2 could also fit with the Hulk prompt too.

TUESDAY JUNE 5

8:00 AM

I haven’t read anything so far today because I ended up sleeping over at a friend’s place and we had a really great time. We ended up watching Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri & Thor: Ragnarok. It was actually really nice to be able to chill for once.

7:18 PM
I’m home now but I’m pretty tired so I think I’m just going to put some Once Upon A Time on and go to sleep early so I can pick The Song of Achilles up tomorrow morning.

WEDNESDAY JUNE 6

EDIT: The Internet was out for Wednesday and our Internet provider can’t send anyone out until Monday, so I didn’t get to update you guys. But I will now!

Basically, I didnt do much because it was game one of State of Origin (aka. The biggest event of the year in Aus) so I pretty much spent the day being anxious (I’m from NSW but, I live in QLD so it’sactually kind of dangerous around this time of year). I hate SOO so I went and saw Solo with my mum & brothers (we all hate football lol) instead and I loved it, I gave it all the stars!! 9.5/10 would definitely see again!

THURSDAY JUNE 7

No wifi again so I had to get creative. Basically ya girl needs wifi to be a blogger and ya girls got none. Instead of blogging I ended up baking cookies  (from scratch, because I’m a pro) and listening to The Song of Achilles. So far, I’m 187 pages in and I’m feeling pretty meh about it. I already know the story and I’m not loving A or P so I’m feeling a disconnect from the story. Hopefully I’ll start enjoying it soon!

Also, I read Giant Days Vol 1 today, yay for reading!

FRIDAY JUNE 8

9:51 AM

Finally, I’m updating you on the day of!

I just picked up Three Dark Crowns again and I’m hoping to finally make some leeway with it. It’s realllly slow but I’m trying to reserve judgement.

4:36 PM

I’ve spent most of the day either cooking, chilling with the dog or reading Three Dark Crowns. I’m roughly 260 pages in and really starting to enjoy it. We’re really in the thick of things now and getting to know the characters so I’m actually quite enjoying it, though it takes up a lot of brain power.

SATURDAY JUNE 9

12:40 PM

So far I’ve had a pretty slow reading morning. I planned on finishing 3DCs last night but ended up watching Tarzan for the first time and then rewatching Frozen (why do so many people hate Frozen??).

I think my goal for today will be to finish Three Dark Crowns and hopefully to read some more of The Song of Achilles. *fingers crossed*

5:32 PM 

I have finished Three Dark Crowns oml finally! (I really enjoyed it and will hopefully be picking up book 2 soon!)

SUNDAY JUNE 10

10:05 AM

Welp, it’s finally happened folks, I have finally read The Song of Achilles. All I can say is that I am definitely in the minority with this book. I think it was pretty meh. I was bored most of the time reading it and I’ll be honest, I think it was pretty overhyped.

I don’t know if I’ll read anymore today. I wanted to do a phase per week but there’s no harm in starting earlier so maybe I’ll pick up something else later in the day.

(Sorry if I just chucked hate on your favourite book 😧❤)

5:37 PM

I just started Bad Romance by Heather Demitrios and so far I’m really enjoying it – the writing is great! I think I’ll read some more tonight and then I might starts season 5 of Once Upon a Time. Either way, I think I’ve had a successful “first week” (if a week was 10 days lol) to the Marvel-A-Thon and I’m excited to continue!
