Posts of the Week
Life of a blogger is a new Thursday book meme I am going to be doing which is a bit more personal than most. It let’s me talk about the non-book-related aspects of my life! Life of a blogger is hosted by NovelHeartbeat
This week’s theme is: Celebrity Crushes
Okay then, so I’m big on TV, if you didn’t know that already so here are an assortment of hotties from the various tv shows I watch:
Grey’s Anatomy- so we have here Patrick Dempsey, Eric Dane, Kevin McKidd and Jesse Williams
Doctor Who – Matt Smith ermahgerd i just love him he’s so cute!
Once Upon a Time – Josh Dallas
Okay I better stop now! Jesus these are mostly middle aged men and I’m like fifteen! Wtf!
The relationship she has with Wren was one which really embodied something I’m going through right now because I moved to Houston and had to leave all of my childhood friends behind and while I’ve been gone I feel like I’ve been stuck in a timelock. While I’ve been continually obsessing over books and Tv, my friends have grown up and moved on to other interests, leaving me behind.
I really liked Reagan. She was like Cath’s Fairy Godmother. Coaxing her out of her shell, encouaging her to stop hiding away in her room and bringing her back into reality. Not to mention her sassy personality and the hilarious things which fell out of her mouth.
“Why are you so obsessed with Simon Snow?”
“I’m not obsessed, I’m just active in the fandom!”
“What the fuck is the fandom?”
-quotes not exact,going from memory as the library has my book
I really liked the storyline with Nick too. He used her, took the credit and then dumpped her int he trash when he was done with her so when he came grovelling back and Cath had her posse of people and turned him down it was just a “Fuck Yeah!” moment.
Okay then, on to Levi. Can I rip him from the book and make him real? I swear to god he is the closest thing to the perfect specimen that the world is ever going to find! He was just the epitome of loveliness. Even before they were dating Levi took care of Cath, helping her in emergencies and waiting for her to catch on to the fact that he liked her. She was so oblivious it was cute!
I think Cath took the whole “he kissed someone else!” thing to the heart for too ling. They weren’t even dating at this point and she hadn’t texted him. Build a bridge and get over it.
So Yeah those were my thoughts o n Fangirl! My only critisism of it was that it wasn’t long enough! I wanted it to go on forever! I want a sequel! But alas, it was not meant to be…. Oh well!
Hey guys! So as you may know if you have been reading for a while now, this is a very important school year for me which means that the blog had been forced to take a backseat as I have exams. On the topic of which, in just under 5 weeks I have mock exams so I wont be able to post as frequently as I had hoped. I am looking for a few people to Guest on my blog these next few weeks. If you would be interested, please contact me via direct message on my twitter ( @SJBookBlog) with an ides for the post you would like to write. You can post about anything! A book review, book from your childhood, an auhor who inspired you or you could get creative and write a short story or something, its up to you! So if you are interested please get in thouch within the next week or so!
So I decided to set myself and you a challenge. Over the next month or so, I am going to be drawing bookcovers and I challenge you to do the same. I am fully aware that I’m not going to get many people participating in this but at the end, I’m going to post all of the drawings and choose my favourites. I am going to point out now that I can’t draw for shit! But I want to have some fun so hey ho, there’s no harm in getting other people involved so please regardless of whether you have existing drawing skills or not, I challenge you to draw a Bookcover and tweet it to me!
Proof of my non-existent drawing skills:
This is supposed to be Matt Smith, I know I’m a failure at life!
Favourite Character: PARK! HANDS DOWN!
Favourite Scene: Either when Park shared his comics with Eleanor on the bus or when Park’s mum warmed to Eleanor and gave her a makeover.
Favourite Quote: “Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.” it’s the sweetest thing!
This is without a doubt one of the cutest books I have ever read, Eleanor and Park’s relationship is such a bumpy road and they spend the whole book trying to keep their footing. Eleanor’s situation reminded me of Tracey Beaker, for all the care she got in that family, she would have been better off in a children’s home. It was like Jaqueline Wilson for young adults.
I thought it was really sweet how Eleanor had a little box which she keeps all of her most treasured possessions in. I also really loved Park’s family as a whole, there was such a stark contrast between his and Eleanor’s. Her foster father reminded me of Gabe Ugliano from Percy Jackson except amplified like 1000% I didn’t think anybody could be such an asshat. The fact that he beleived that to be acceptable behaviour staggered me, I can’t beleive Eleanor stayed as long as she did. Eleanor’s mother is almost worse than he was for putting up with it for so long and subjecting her children to his behaviour.
This week’s Top 10 Tuesday was actually my top 10 2014 debuts, but I only know of two which I’m excited about, so I decided to go back to a theme which was done before I started blogging.
