Lately, I’ve been watching more booktubers and getting into their videos, after Sarah recommending me many for the past few months! I’ve been watching more youtubers generally lately and I think that’s why I decided to venture into more bookish videos! Continue reading
It’s taken a lot of consideration this year whether i wanted to join in the BookTube-A-Thon 2016. A lot of factors are against me this year, including the fact that i’m in a slight reading slump and i’m going away to see friends for three days right in the middle of the cram. However i have caved and i’m going to try my best to join in some of the challenges. Here’s my TBR and the challenges that i’m hoping to complete for this years BookTube-A-Thon.
The time is almost upon us when loads of readers manically try to read as much as humanly possible in seven days, along with completing seven tasks. This is also known as BookTube-A-Thon! This years event will be taken place on between July 18th and July 24th, just enough time left for you to get your TBR piles prepared!
I think what enhanced my obsession with books was my addiction to YouTube. I discovered the magical world of YouTube pretty late in my life (I think I was about 19) and suddenly became obsessed with people talking about books on there! There are so many incredible ‘BookTubers’ who host giveaways, record hauls, reviews and anything else you can image in front of a camera. Watching BookTuber’s is a pass time which allows me to relax but still think about novels and get me excited to read. After all, we all want to be excited to read!
I’ve been reading a lot of books lately where I’ve fallen slightly in love with the male characters. Let’s face it, most of the time fictional boyfriends are much better than actual real life boyfriends because they don’t require as much effort. It’s like we can love them up close without all the drama! Perfect! Now as a human being who likes both the male and female variety I will be following up this post at some point with a ‘top 6 fictional girlfriends,’ because we can’t really leave out how much I long for Katniss Everdeen can we?

I have been on a book buying ban along with my father for about eight months now. This ban means that I cannot buy books at all with my own money (I can accept gifts or use gift vouchers to buy books) and if I was to buy a book I’d have to buy one for my father too. So far this has been a pretty successful deal as us tight arses don’t want to spend money buying books for each other! However as August brought a family holiday and the end of summer, the ban had been lifted and we were free to buy books until our hearts were content – or wallets were empty!
Being a Uni student it means I have an extortionate amount of time off in the summer. Unlike the rest of my peers who spend these months having a social life, I become a hermit and read. This summer I’ve managed to read a total of nine books at the time of writing this. Continue reading
