Summer Blog Challenge – Day 27

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.

Anyway.

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.

Summer Blog Challenge – Day 22

Day 22 – A Book That Reminds You of Home

Books invoke emotions in us. They invoke feelings and thoughts and imagination. That’s part of what we love about them, right? Because they allow us to be someplace we’re not and feel things we might otherwise not have felt.

They can make you think of home without even meaning to.

A book that makes me think of home is The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, Wayfarer series, by Becky Chambers.

Forever… – Judy Blume

Hey guys,

We all love Judy Blume. So many of us grew up with her books and those books made a lasting impression on us (everyone needs Double Fudge in their lives). So this book was written back in 1975, won the 1996 A.L.A. Margaret A. Edwards Award for Outstanding Literature for Young Adults and was said to be ahead of its time. It was, and for some, it might still be. I really, really adored this book. I related a lot to the story and it hurt.

Forever by Judy Blume.

The Eternity Cure (The Blood of Eden, #2)

Hey guys,

So I finished The Immortal Rules in about 24 hours (which is pretty impressive for me considering I was also working 8 of those hours) and had to find out how the story continues. Honestly, my head is still reeling with how much I am enjoying this series. To think I stumbled across the series accidentally on a Facebook YA fan page!

To recap, The Immortal Rules ended with Allison leaving Zeke and his family at Eden, the last safe haven for humans, without saying goodbye to go an search for Kanin, her sire, who was kidnapped by Sarin. Zeke, the descendant of Malakai Crosse who was one of the original scientists working on the cure for Red Lung, was tasked to bring the original research for the cure to Eden which they succeed in bringing to Eden. Kanin has been taken by Sarren, a psychotic vampire used in the vampire experiments in an attempt to develop a cure, and has been torturing Kanin along their journey together.

What To Expect When You Are Expecting

Hey guys,

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 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”
