Day 27 – A Book That You Both Love and Hate
First of all, sorry for the absence. I’m running a day late with my challenge but unfortunately my daughter has been having a bit of an episode and has made doing things the past two days incredibly difficult. But I suppose we’ll get there.
We’re getting on with the challenge and for this prompt I choose a book that both pulled me in and pushed me away.
A book I both love and hate is A Fault in our Stars by John Green.

Day 19 – A Book That Disappointed You
Its not often that I’m not pleased with a book and I can’t say that there are a lot of books I’ve felt disappointed by.
A book that I was disappointed by was If I Stay by Gayle Forman.

I love when authors reach out to help others. In fact, I love when anyone takes the time to reach out a hand to help others. It doesn’t take much to show a simple act of kindness to someone and that is something that a lot of people seem to forget.
But Neil Gaiman and Sara J. Benincasa haven’t.

There has been some radio silence on my part recently. I am alive and kicking, just struggling to find the motivation to do anything productive. I’ve been thinking about my blog a lot but can’t find the energy to start writing something. It’s a bit of a slump. I’ve even just been rereading the same books rather than delve into anything new. (As much as I love ACOTAR, I really need to find something else to read!)
It isn’t all miserable, far from it really. There are some exciting times ahead for my fiance and me- our dynamic duo is going to become a trio in May 2019. We are expecting our first baby (a lovely little girl) and we are so in love with a person we have yet to meet. A lot of exciting changes are coming about.

Day 20 – Would You Consider Yourself an Optimist or Realist?
I think everyone is a little bit of an optimist in life, regardless of how they think. We all want to see the positive outcomes in things, no matter how big or small. And sometimes we are a little bit pessimistic. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 20”
Day 18 – Describe Your First Love and First Kiss (Of Significance)
This could be… interesting. Good prompt and we could probably say a lot on the matter.
I’ve definitely taught myself not to look back in anger. It is my past and we live on regardless of it.
Let’s disregard silly things we do as kids when boys were yucky and I was more interested in rolling down hills and climbing trees.
I was 14 and I was in love. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 18”
Day 17 – Your Favourite Place to Go
This is kind of a hard one for me because for the past few years, what with life and work and university, I haven’t really had nearly as much free time as I would have liked. Now that I’m driving and am in a different working environment I have a little bit more freedom but, as it turns out, that hasn’t really helped too much. I still don’t get out nearly as much as I’d like to, I’m always just too tired. I’m thinking that I will keep this prompt more local rather than choose someplace across the world (far and unreasonable). So, my favourite place to go is actually anywhere in the Scottish Highlands and sometimes the Islands.
