Updates

I made a Booktube channel!

Hey guys so a little update. I’m currently reading To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and loving it.

I’m still in a reading slump sadly though so I might not complete my reading goal for this month, but I still have a few days and 5 books to finish so we’ll see.

Anyways the real reason I wanted to do this. I made a Booktube channel! I’ll link it below and link it in my about section.

I’m really excited to do this, don’t worry I’m going to keep the blog. I still want to do book reviews and talk about things. I want to do book hauls though as well as TBRs and Wrap ups and book tags.

I hope you guys check it out!

 

Until Next Time,

Alex

Book Reviews

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

“A #1 New York Times-bestseller

Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who’s ever been chosen.

That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here — it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

Carry On – The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story – but far, far more monsters.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

This book is the fanfiction that Cath was writing during Fangirl. I loved reading some of the passages from that book.

So when I realized Rowell had published that fanfiction I was very intrigued. Also, the fanfiction focuses on two men in a relationship which intrigued me even more.

I started it and it started a little slow, but eventually picked up. I liked the relationship development throughout the story. I think it was very interesting the way that one boy knew he was gay while the other was just beginning to figure it out.

The whole story is basically like a parody of Harry and Draco fanfics. Which some people ship them, other’s don’t. I personally don’t, but I still really enjoyed this book.

The magic system isn’t explained too well and it’s very confusing. Obviously it’s a fanfiction so it can’t be like the magic system in Harry Potter.

All in all, I did really enjoy this book. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars. I think it’s a good book for middle school and up. It’s different from Rainbow Rowell books and nothing like Harry Potter, but still very interesting.

Until Next Time:

Why I Quit Bookstagram

Hey guys! So I wanted to address this. I didn’t know if anyone would care.

So up until just recently I had a bookstagram account where I posted about books. I love books as you can tell. And I love photography so it seemed like the perfect fit. And it was for awhile. But I noticed recently that I was feeling bored with it. I wasn’t posting as often  and not because I was busy. Let’s be real, I don’t have a life for the most part.

So that’s the short answer: I was feeling bored.

I didn’t have inspiration to take pictures even though I have a brand new camera. I wasn’t feeling like new layouts even though I have been steadily buying new books. I was tired of it. It didn’t feel like it was challenging me. Now, blogging I will be doing for as long as possible cause it challenges me and I want to share my opinion.

I also felt like it would be hard and weird to take pictures in college. Bookstagram pictures that is. Whereas blogging isn’t as difficult while in college. I also don’t want to feel obligated to post all the time during college. I want to really enjoy college and spend it making new friends and learning. So I might take some artsy pictures for the blog, but as for bookstagram I don’t feel comfortable!

Thanks for understanding.

Until Next Time,

Alex
