Feat., Recommendations, Wrap ups

Almost-weekly wrap-up

Book bloggers are awesome! Here’s my wrap-up of the posts I loved this week (and some of the week before because I’m still catching up!)

My mornings lately have consisted of me refusing to get out of bed while I try desperately to catch up on my Bloglovin’ feed!

I am following so many fantastic bloggers on bloglovin’ that I can barely keep up.  It’s so great to be able to see what other book lovers are writing, reading, and reviewing.  I wanted to share the love – so here’s a couple of my favourites from this week (and a bit of last week):

10 THINGS #BOOKBLOGGERS SHOULD ABSOLUTELY NOT FEEL GUILTY ABOUT

I have been really loving Cait’s blog Paper Fury.  She’s hilarious, her content is on point, and her pictures and graphics are just so pretty!!  This was my favourite post from this week.  I’m new at this blogging thing and I was so wrapped up wishing I was better at it.  This post helped me out a lot!

Coconut Honey Ice Cream @ The Moment

Nope – this is not  technically speaking book related, it’s a recipe for ice cream. Mother fucking COCONUT HONEY ICE CREAM!!  And it’s friggin’ AMAZING! Go make it.  Eat it.  Then come back here and tell me how delicious it is.

 

Reading before Bed @ Addicted to Success

Bed is one of my favourite places to read.  I didn’t realise that anyone had researched whether it is actually beneficial or not.  Apparently it is. WIN!

 

Lessons from a little library @ Nerdy Book Club

This was cute, and such a cool idea!  Little libraries might be common overseas but definitely not here in Whangarei.  I live in the country, but if I ever move into a suburban area I’m going to seriously consider doing this.  And if I ever see one of these on someone’s lawn I swear I am marching up to their door to congratulate them on being awesome.

Grammar Rules @ Cup of Jo

Have you ever noticed this?

“Adjectives in English absolutely have to be in this order: opinion-size-age-shape-colour-origin-material-purpose Noun. So you can have a lovely little old rectangular green French silver whittling knife. But if you mess with that word order in the slightest you’ll sound like a maniac. It’s an odd thing that every English speaker uses that list, but almost none of us could write it out.”

Apparently we do it on the regular but don’t notice it. Fascinating! Yes, I find grammar fascinating.

 

The Books that made them Writers @ Omnivoracious

I thought this was such a beautiful article.  I loved reading about how a gifted book made such a profound impact on an author’s life.  This is why I keep giving books away – just in the hope it will have a positive influence on someone’s life.

 

That’s by no means all of the blog posts I loved this week but it’s getting late and work beckons tomorrow.  Enjoy the rest of the week!!
