My Bookish Life: Childhood Books Revisited

my bookish life

I cannot quite recall how it happened, but I think I somehow came across the movie at the library quite by accident. The title sounded vaguely familiar, so I read the back and discovered that the film was based on a book series I had read when I was younger. One Christmas my grandmother had given me two books from the series, the fifth and the eighth, and though I read them I wasn’t too impressed –this might have something to do with the fact I hate reading books out of order or that it wasn’t the genre I preferred at that age. Even though it was a juvenile movie I borrowed it from the library anyways due to sheer curiosity. Continue reading “My Bookish Life: Childhood Books Revisited”

Waiting on Wednesday: For Dummies

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

It is never too late to learn new things, even if it is something you may already use every single day. I decided to brush up on the latest techniques in regards to social media marketing and blogging –things I use for work, this site, and for myself– to see if there was anything I could be doing better, easier, or differently. Because of that, I put myself on the reserve list at the library for the following books Continue reading “Waiting on Wednesday: For Dummies”

Waiting On Wednesday: Mandie by Lois Gladys Leppard

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

I have been going through a phrase lately of rereading a book series I somewhat liked when I was younger. I had only read two of the stories when they had been given to me as a gift, but thought nothing of reading any of the rest. I happened to come across them again and decided to read the whole series… or at least the ones I could get my hands on. Now I am waiting from them to come in at the library!

W.W.W. Wednesday

WWW new

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.  All you have to do is answer these 3 questions: 

1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

To do something a little different with this, I thought I’d find out what my friends are reading and post that whenever I can get answers out of them!

Kathleen is finished reading “Land of Stories” – Chris Colfer

Kathleen is reading “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” – Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm

Kathleen is next reading either something by L.M. Montgomery or “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury
