#RYBSAT and A Winter’s Respite | Update

Hello, It’s me. Did you miss me? I’ve missed a few days, I know. That wasn’t planned, I promise. But honestly? I’ve been really stuck on my reading. It’s been scattered and full of uncertainties. I started a couple but couldn’t get into them. I read a hundred pages of Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson but I just…couldn’t continue. Not that it’s bad, but it was feeling a bit…tedious. I wasn’t into it. And then I worried what else to read because I know part of […]

Hello again. It’s me. On day two and the final day of this lovely readathon and I’m just going to tell you how I’m doing. Today (17th) I have read about 50 pages of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer so far. It’s only 3pm and I’m hoping I’ll get more done before dinner distracts me. Hehe. And trust me… Food distracts me often.  I slept long but not hard so I’m feeling a bit meh today. Oh well. I see no one has commented on my […]

Yes… It’s another challenge. Me like! So basically within the next 48 hours (16th-17th January) I read as much as I can. But because we need to sleep, the actual reading time will be around 24hrs. Confused yet? At time of posting I have already started my first book, though it’s hour 13. I had to finish my last book but that was only a couple chapters. What I’m reading: the sin eaters daughter by Melinda Salisbury I’m only on page 13. Haha. It’s not […]

Audiobook review: 5 stars to You’re Never Weird On The Internet (almost) by Felicia Day #memoir #autobiographical

From online entertainment mogul, actress, and “queen of the geeks” Felicia Day, a funny, quirky, and inspiring memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to Internet-stardom, and embracing her individuality to find success in Hollywood. The Internet isn’t all cat videos. There’s also Felicia Day—violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, hoagie specialist, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world…or at least semi-influential in the world of Internet Geeks and Goodreads book clubs. After growing […]

#TheShelfieHop

  Hey guys! So this is exciting, huh? We all get to see each others shelves and stuff. *nods enthusiastically* Great! I had planned (back when I thought the Shelfie Hop was on the 19th…not the 16th!) to reorganise a bit and generally make it look a bit better, BUT since I forgot the date, I’ve had to…uh..rush. Here goes the lovely tour of my bedroom book cases and such. (It’s not everything, because I have books in places I can’t physically get to…yeah the […]
