I'm A Bookworm

29 June 2014

God my laptop is painfully slow. But hello people, I was going to post an outfit post today but then I didn't take any pictures but I had already written everything up and now I'm making a new post about books because they are all I can think about at the moment.

But first I need to clean a few things up. Mainly for my sake so I can just write a list of things that I need to sort out, but partly for you if you're wondering where the heck I am going with my blogging.
  • Now that all my end of year exams are over, I will definitely blog more and be more active. I have been so suckish recently and I need to improve and I will since I will have more time
  • I need to sort out my blog right now. I have no idea when it will be fixed but everything is a mess. I need to change my picture and about me to be honest. But I never know what to put in an about me. What about me!? Should I include what my blog is about?? Which leads me to the next thing
  • I want to post a bigger variety of posts but I'm not one to really do lifestyle posts because I'm too embarrassed to just take my camera out with me and at the moment I have a phone with a really bad camera
But enough of that.
 I don't know if I ever mentioned it before but I love reading. I read books so quickly and I gladly reread books...sometimes. People always ask me how I can re read books, but to be honest, it just feels like watching a film again! And each time you pick up on new things, or little links which you never realised before, which I love finding. Recently I've become a fan of highlighting quotes too, or my favourite parts of the book. I mainly always read eBooks, because they're cheaper, but for birthdays/Christmas I get some in real life books and it feel so satisfying to have a physical book. I like to buy the classics as in real life books, such as Catcher In The Rye, To Kill A Mockingbird (which I think I might start tomorrow) and the Bronte sisters and just old classics like that, but if I get any opportunity to read a real life book, I take it.

I'm only allowed to get one book a month, since I read them so quickly I cant buy them each time I finish one because money is a thing and my local library has a very bad book collection. I haven't read a book in a while though, because in the summer I literally read none stop, so I'm saving up all my book tokens (not actual book tokens, I'm just saving up money) so I can buy a bunch in summer. Also, I am currently reading a book but it's got a bit boring and I haven't read it in ages, but I'll just soldier through and then start a new one, since I'm almost done with it.

I'm going off track. What a surprise.

Ages ago I made a list of all the books I wanted. I have lost that list but I have created another list of books which I want and thought I'd show you a few of them. I might also start reviewing books, go crazy, since I do read at least one once a month and maybe I could help save you from buying terrible books like I've done in the past or to show you really good books.Also if I really like a book I will definitely share it with you. Whilst writing this post I went off on a massive rant about my experience with recommending books and people not listening to me but then when they became films they all became obsessed, but I think I'll save that story for a future post because I have written loads and I don't want to bore you with it. You will hear the story one day though. Even if you don't want to hear it I will share my pain with you guys. 

In Order

The first book I wasn't too bothered about, until I read that it had been banned from many school libraries and even burnt in Kansas City. I then realised that this would have happened a long time ago because the book was published in the early 80's, but I'm interested to know what was so outrageous about it. . It was probably banned just because those places were really homophobic back then, maybe they still are, but I just want to read it so I can know if there actually is anything diabolical in it or if it was just banned because it's based on two girls who fall in love. But this book doesn't bother me so much if I read it or not, I just found it cool that it had been banned and burnt in some places.

Wonder I read about but didn't want to actually read the book, but then my mum started reading it and said that it's really good and interesting. I know it's aimed at a slightly younger audience, but I have read really good reviews so I think I might read it. Because I listen to other peoples opinions and appreciate them, unlike what people done to me when I recommended them books but then they cared when it became a film. So much built up bitterness inside me. I will share the story with you soon. Maybe not soon but it is in my drafts, its not even a big deal, but in my heart and sole it is. I always wonder if you guys pick up on my sarcasm. its so hard to convey sarcasm in a blog post. I could just put a winky face but I'm not about that life.

I've never seen I Am Legend the film, but I know its meant to be amazing. I always like to read the book before I see the film though so I think I might read it. I know that *HERE'S A SPOILER BUT NOT A VERY BIG ONE SO DON'T WORRY YOU PROBABLY KNOW IT HAPPENS ANYWAY* the dog dies which I know I'm going to cry at. I always cry when the dog dies. They're just so innocent and are only there to help. I wanted to read it on holiday, but what if I start to cry. Ill hide the tears behind my sunglasses. 

I'll probably get all of these books as eBooks, except The Miseducation Of Cameron Post, I don't know why I want a physical copy of that one, I think it's just because it has a pretty over. And I want I Am Legend as a real life form, because I don't know if its classified as a classic, but in my eyes it is so I want the physical form of it.

I was meant to go on a run this morning but instead I spent the whole time changing this blog post. What a shame, guess that means I should just leave the exercise for another day. Oh no. 
I really need to stop putting off being healthy. From today I will be healthy. Not in a way to lose weight though, just so I can feel healthy and clean instead of gross because I have been so unhealthy recently its not even funny. I ate enough chicken nuggets yesterday to turn into a chicken nugget.
Anyway, bye guys! I'm definitely going to post on Wednesday, I have a post waiting in my drafts. Man I love blogging. But thank you for reading and let me know in the comments if you've read any of these books and if I should bother with any of them? I don't want to waste money on a bad book. Goodbye for now my friends.
