Dane’s Poem: Gimme the Words!

Exciting news people!

I’ve just established a partnership with author and book blogger Dane Cobain and we’ve already arranged a few projects together! The first is for us to come up with 5 words, I’ll send them over to Dane, he’ll write a poem with them and they I’ll publish it here for you guys to see the result 😀

So all you have to do is hurry up, think of a word and leave it in the comment section below. First 5 will be sent to Dane! Hurry hurry 😉

Apologies

Dear all,

Life’s been crazy around here. Ever since summer started I haven’t stopped for a bit (my friends would have killed me by now if they could even land their eyes on me by more than a second! 🙈). This resulted in me not having time for thinking about how I want to restructure the blog like I had promised I would. My apologies for that.

But I am back. Life is still crazy, my reading rhythm has slowed down significantly but this is a project I care about and that I want to keep working on. I won’t make promises about consistency or frequency at this point because, honestly, I’m still not sure how I want this to evolve. All I know is I want to make it more “me” and more creative while still heavily connected to books and reading and fandoms and all those things that make our heads spin. This “crazy” period of life I’m still going through has been helping me form some general ideas I would like to implement. Let’s see how it goes, shall we? 🙂

All I ask you is to be patient, like you’ve always been so far, this is process for me too and no matter how long and bumpy it might be I’m sure it will end with good results!

Lastly, a million times thank you for sticking around! 😘💕

Thank you for hosting!

 

My Teaser:

“-But how? – Olive demanded. Her question reflected off the stone walls, each echo wasking again.

Emma stood up.

I’ll tell you how – she said, and all eyes went to her – We’ll walk – she said it such conviction that I got a chill – We’ll walk and walk until we come to a town.

-What if there’s no town for fifty kilometers? – said Enoch.

-Then we’ll walk for fifty-one kilometers.”

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Thanks for hosting guys!

This week’s theme is authors I read for the first time in 2015. Lets give this one a try!

 

10. Suzanne Collins

I know, it’s a shame I only read the The Hunger Games trilogy this year but it’s the truth and I was being an idiot, I know. Katniss was a huge surprise! Such amazing characters…

 

9. Richelle Mead

Great with characters! I’ve been reading her Vampire Academy series.

 

8. Kimber Simpkins

Her 52 Ways to Love your Body changed the way I see body image completely.

 

7. Laini Taylor

Super looking forward to finish the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy!

 

6. Ransom Riggs

A refreshing writing style, so good to read his books!

 

5. Sarah J. Maas

I’m trying to go through the Throne of Glass series as slowly as possible because I just don’t want it to end so soon!

 

4. Rachel Hollis

Smart Girl was such an emotional read, loved it to the moon and back!

 

3. Jonathan Safran Foer

Only read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close so far, but I’m a fan already!

 

2. Colleen Hoover

She grabbed me with Hopeless and I haven’t let go of her books since…

 

1. Ernest Cline

Ready Player One. Do I need to say anything else?

My Teaser:

“I tried hard to make up for his absence, but finally realized that none of my efforts could ever completely repair the fissure in her heart. The realization wasn’t enought to make me stop trying, though.”
