Movies You Didn’t Know Were Books

Hello everyone!

Today on my blog I wanted to talk about some movies that everyone knows (or should know) about, and how they are based off of books.

Typically, if a movie is based off of a book it’s something that is widely known and displayed on a lot of platforms.

You don’t usually see movies not mention their affiliation to a novel.

I hope you enjoy this blog post and learn about some very odd book to movie adaptations that are not known by a large part of the public.

TED Talk Tuesday

Hello everyone!

Today I am going to be doing something a bit different from what I usually do on my blog. Not that my blog is anything close to normal, but you get what I’m saying.

I have been a fan of TED Talks for a while now, and I’ve always felt like watching/listening to these talks always leads to me thinking about things I’ve never really thought about before.

Therefore, I wanted to create a way for me to be able to think about what I’m hearing in a new way, as well as share what I’m hearing with other people so they also get some insight into something they may have never thought about before.

I understand that this may not be what you’re following my blog for and that’s totally okay. Your regularly programmed blog posts will resume tomorrow/whenever I next post, but for today we’re doing this.

I hope you guys enjoy this new “segment” on my blog. This is just a test run, but I hope that it goes well and that some of you maybe even enjoy it.

How to get out of a reading slump.

Hello everyone.

As we all know, I have been caught up in a horrible reading slump that has taken over my life. It makes me feel horrible not reading books as much as I used to, and I’m really sad that it’s not completely gone yet.

This post is going to be filled with ways that I have tried to help me get rid of my reading slump. Some have been more helpful than others, but all are attempts that I have made.

I hope you all enjoy this post, and if you’re in a reading slump I wish you all the best to beat it!


1. Watch BookTube Videos

This is an obvious choice for me. I always have the strongest urge to buy a book or read a book after someone has talked about it and how much they enjoyed it.

Hearing someone talk about a book that you own and haven’t read yet brings upon the strongest urge to pick that book up and find out why they enjoyed the book.


2. Go to a bookstore

This also seems like a very obvious choice for me.

Going to bookstores always makes me have the strongest urge to read all the books that I see and have. In addition to getting the urge to read, going to bookstores also increases my likelihood to buy a new book, and that increases the likelihood that I will read said book.


3. Re-read a favourite

Re-reading one of my favourite books always makes me want to read more, especially when it’s a series and you like all the other books in the series as well.

I tried this earlier on with When Breathe Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, and it didn’t really work. I think this is because this novel is a non-fiction and a little too intense for me to read when in a reading slump, but I would definitely recommend something like Harry Potter or something along those lines to help you get back into the groove of things.


4. Listen to an audiobook

This is a nice way to get a slight break from reading physical novels, but still be reading something. I personally have not done this because I’m currently enjoying listening to podcast’s on my drive, but I do think that this would be a great substitute for reading.


5. If you’re not feeling it, don’t do it.

This last one, I think, is the most important tip for anyone who is in a reading slump.

If you do not feel like reading. Don’t force yourself to do it.

All this will do is make you, first, hate the book you’re reading, and second, make your reading slump even worse.

If you’re not interested in picking up a book, concentrate on what you are interested in doing and don’t make yourself feel guilty (I do it all the time) for not reading all the books on your TBR.


That is about all I currently have for tips on getting out of a reading slump. I hope you guys enjoyed.

I’d also like to say thanks to all of my followers for being so patient with me as I suffer through this reading (and writing) slump, I promise I’m getting out of it!!

Where I’ve Been.

Hello everyone.

I owe you guys an explanation…


It has been far too long since I’ve posted something on this blog, and I’m sorry about that.

August was a very very busy month for me and due to all that was going on this month I went through a very large reading/writing slump.

I’m still not entirely out of my reading slump, but seeing as how two of my most anticipated books have now come out and are in my possession, I’m hoping to change that.

Most of August and some of September I have been doing my second practicum for my nursing course and that has been taking up a lot of my time and energy. There are only 4 more days of our practicum left, so I am very excited to get back into a somewhat normal routine again.

I really appreciate a lot of you giving me time to just relax a bit and concentrate on my school. I’ve had a lot of support on Twitter so I really appreciate it.

As for all the new followers I’ve gained during my semi-hiatus on this blog, WELCOME! I’m glad you’ve decided to follow my blog and just know that I do usually post a lot, this is just a special case.

That’s about all I have to say in this post, stay tuned for some upcoming movie reviews (because that’s just about all I’ve been doing recently).

July Book Haul #2?

Okay. So I may have gotten a couple more books this month…

It’s not my fault! I didn’t even buy half of them! – Ok I bought more than half, but still.

This month was mine and my boyfriends 1 year anniversary, and he got me the things I most wished for. Books.

I received two of those, and then I had to buy a couple more when I noticed the sales that Chapters was having… when I was picking up a book that I ordered…

Okay, so I have no self control. Don’t judge me.

Let’s just start.
