30 Day Book Challenge – Day Eleven

If there are two things I am good at when it comes to talking about books, it’s gushing about books that I adore and ranting about books I hate. So, today’s challenge is going to be one that I am going to have a lot to say about.

30 Day Book Challenge – Day Ten

I feel like the point of day ten’s challenge may be to provoke the mob, get a bunch of die-hard fans to sharpen their pitchforks in defence of their favourite book. I don’t really like that stance because everyone should be open to their own opinions, but this planet isn’t that simple. There have always been people who will get overly defensive over things they care about and not listen to any critiques about it, and there always will be.

30 Day Book Challenge – Day Seven

Day seven should be fairly easy in the sense that I know what book I’m going to pick, but I don’t really know what to say about it. There isn’t really all that much to say.

The theme for this day is to pick out your favourite book title. The rules weren’t very specific – it doesn’t say whether it has to be a book that you’ve read or just a name that you’ve heard and liked the sound of.

30 Day Book Challenge – Day Four

Day four of the thirty-day challenge is definitely my favourite so far because it’s giving me the opportunity to gush about my favourite book series of all time – albeit through a singular book in the series.

The theme this time is “The Book You’ve Reread Most Often”, and in recent years, simply because of the astounding amount of books I’ve come to own, I don’t regularly reread books. When I was a kid and depended on my mother or father to get me books, I didn’t really have all that many. I remember a time when I was fourteen and only got £2 a week for pocket money from my grandmother begging my Dad to give me the extra £2 I was missing to be able to get this book I wanted. So, because I was so limited, I would reread what books I did have before venturing out to the local libraries to get more.

30 Day Book Challenge – Day Three

Day three of the challenge, I suppose, is supposed to be a little more difficult than day two. You have to look back over into 2016 and pick out the best book you read. I guess for some people, and probably me in a year’s time, this would be pretty difficult if you read a lot of good books. Don’t get me wrong, there were a lot of books that did stand out to me last year and got me thinking and feeling things that I never thought I would. But there is one book in particular that stood out amongst all the others… and I’ve talked about it a fair amount already…
