I've combined my October wrap-up with September because I never actually posted one. I've been awful at posting lately and there are several reasons why, the main one being that I am writing a thesis. A dumb reason I put off posting is because to make my blog's graphic I have to use my mother's computer and it's so slow. I've also kind of lost my spark for blogging, which is sad, but maybe it will come back now that it's my uni break! My break is 4 months (but I still have to write a 15000 word thesis).
Do you ever watch a movie that you loved and wish that there was a book version of it? There are so many movies that were firstly books, but there are also a lot of movies that were simply turned into movie because of an original screenplay. I've thought of eight movies I really enjoyed and after watching them wished that there was a book based on the story.
I love the topic for this week's Top 5 Wednesday and it was really hard to narrow down my favourites. Although, I must admit I am kind of disappointed in books with f/f characters. I haven't read many that I found to be amazing and I also find that they are pretty hard to find, which means I don't get to read them very often.
My latest obsession is Call Me By Your Name. The book was published in 2006 and recently there has been a film based on the book. I watched the film first about two weeks before I read the book. It was definitely one of the best films I have ever seen. Reading the book was a different experience because it differed slightly from the film and it made me think about the characters in new ways. In this post, I will review both the film and the book and determine which comes out on top.
Today I am back with a Top 5 Wednesday prompt! I have been running low on ideas for posts, so I thought I would just go back to Top 5 Wednesday. This week's prompt is "books I disliked but loved to discuss". "Some books we disliked or they were just okay, but they still have … Continue reading Books I Disliked But Love to Discuss
About a week ago Sophie @Blame Chocolate tagged me to do the Ringing in the New Year Book Tag! Thank you for tagging me, Sophie. If you didn't know already, Sophie is lovely. This tag involves answering bookish questions about 2017 and the near year. It has already been a few weeks into 2018, but I thought it would still be okay to do this tag!
Thank you The Orangutan Librarian for nominating me for this award! It is called the Brotherhood of the World Award and it mostly includes questions about your blog.
In May last year I created a list of ten Young Adult books that I wanted to read by the end of 2017. They were all books that I was really looking forward to reading at the time, and wanted to order them so I would remember the next YA book I wanted to read. I managed to read most of them and have reasons as to why I didn't read the others.

I hope that everyone had a great New Year's! My birthday was on New Year's Day, which is good because you start your birthday to fireworks, but bad because you have to remind everyone that it's your birthday.
