Hello everyone! It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a book review on my blog. Over the last few years, reading is something that I’ve gotten really into again. Even though I don’t talk as much on my blog about books as I do about other things in pop culture, I really do quite enjoy reading and books. My favorite book that I read in 2021 was Turtles All The Way Down by John Green. In this review, I will talk briefly on what this book is about, along with sharing my thoughts on this book as well.

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is having a fun and delightful Saturday! Anyone else over winter? Wouldn’t it be lovely if the season of spring was just around the corner? If only. Eh, it’s just a few more months until spring, so there’s that. Anyways, instead of going on and on about my seasonal depression, let’s talk about my goals for the new year!

Hey. I wasn’t sure I was going to write this article, but I’ve got nothing else to do. Well, that’s not completely true. I definitely need to dust the blinds on my windows, but I’m not really in the mood to do that at the moment. I find myself wanting to write this article instead, so here goes. Continue reading “Thank You For Your Patience, Now Back To Your Regularly Scheduled Program…”
Hey everyone! How am I? Hmmm…. I’ve been up, I’ve been down. The last few months have basically felt more or less like I’ve been on a non-stop rollercoaster. But, this is going to be an article not about my life or my feelings, but about pop culture! Remember the days when I mostly wrote about pop culture? Well, this pop culture nerd is going to try and do that kind of article again! Yeah! Continue reading “Hello!”
Hey everyone. This past week was a bit difficult for me to get through. Some days are better than others, and that’s just how it is sometimes, I guess. In today’s article, I’m going to put real life to the side for the moment to talk about the things that helped get me through this past week. Continue reading “What Got Me Through This Week…”
This new year started off great for this gal in the reading bookworm department. I finished my first book read of the new year in January. Which was the novel “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” by Jenny Han. Curious about this gal’s thoughts on that lovely novel & its film adaptation? Check out […]
This new year started off great for this gal in the reading bookworm department. I finished my first book read of the new year in January. Which was the novel “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” by Jenny Han. Then this slow as can be bookworm that I am, actually somehow managed to finish my second book read of this very new year in February. Which was “Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda” by Becky Albertalli. Then came March, and I started to read my third book read of the year “In a Dark, Dark Wood” by Ruth Ware. Between working on articles for my blog, I just didn’t end up finishing this book until…… (hold for dramatic effect)….. JUNE! All bookworms out there reading this, I know, I know, “Major Bookworm Nerd Fail” here. I realize this. But at the end of the day, I did finally finish reading this book. It just took way longer to accomplish reading completely than I would have initially of expected when I started reading it way back in the month of March.

Hey All! Okay, so I had one reading goal initially for myself when entering this New Year of 2019 for when it came to dealing with the topic of what books to read. I had the goal of reading more novels that don’t have any adaptations as of yet, you know read to read and not watch a film/tv version of it afterwards.
Okay, so as you can tell by now the first book that I finished reading in this year of 2019 so far was indeed a book that does in fact have an adaptation. At some point during this New Year, I do hope to read more books that don’t have an adaptation at the point I’m reading them, I promise. Technically, I did start to read “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” during the late fall months of 2018 before the New Year began so that reading goal of mine didn’t yet apply, I’ll say. And being somewhat of a slow bookworm reader I finished reading this novel a few months later. So even though I started reading this in late 2018, I didn’t finish reading it until the second week of January. Thus, making it my first official book read of 2019! Oh, for how exciting it is for that moment where you finish reading just a really great book, you know! Slow Bookworm Reader (that is I) says a “Heck Yes” to that! Continue reading “Book & Book Adaptation Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before….”
“Yup!”. “Most Definitely!”. “I think it’s decided. Definitely this one!”. “Yipee! I made my decision, it’s this one for sure!”. Those are just a few of the things I say when thinking I’ve finally made my decision and decided on what next book I’d like to read. I feel so confident in these moments that I’ve made my final decision on choosing that next book. I feel that complete confidence that I would never, ever possibly change my mind. And then it happens…. Continue reading “The Indecisive Reader’s Guide To Choosing A Book And Reading List of 2018…..”
*DISCLAIMER – In this article, I will be discussing the books and TV series of Sweetbitter, Sharp Objects, and You. This article contains spoilers from these books/shows as I discuss my thoughts on them. Okay, cool? Now that that’s out of the way, enjoy fellow Pop Culture Nerds.*
These days book adaptations are constantly happening. Whether it be a TV series, a movie, a stage play, books are a constant source for great material. 2018 was once again a year where tons of books got that adaptation treatment of being formed into another source of entertainment for us all. Continue reading “Book Adaptations of 2018…”
I envy people who can concentrate long enough when at the beach or the pool to take time out to read a book. Heck, some people even have a reading list of books just for the summer to read at those places and actually stick to that reading list and read and finish those books at those places. Oh, to have such the concentration. Continue reading “With That Summer Feeling Finally Here….. Reading Outdoors is The Last Thing I’ll Be Doing…..”
