What I’m reading – I am currently reading Paper Towns by John Green. I thoroughly enjoyed the film so I thought I would pick up the novel. The story is about a girl named Margo Roth Spiegelman and her neighbour Quentin Jacobsen. The blurb reads as follows: ‘Quentin Jacobsen has always loved Margo from afar. So when she climbs through his window to summon him on an all-night road trip of revenge he cannot help but follow. But the next morning, Q turns up at school and Margo doesn’t. She’s left clues to her disappearance, like a trail of breadcrumbs for Q to follow’.
What I’m watching – With the university year finished, an abundance of time and very little to do, I have taken to watching a lot of TV. Currently I am watching Friends, 3rd Rock from the Sun and The Big Bang Theory. All three I would recommend, especially if what you’re after is a light watch which you don’t have to put a lot of energy or concentration into.
What I’m listening to – Plastic by Nina Karolidou, Like I Would by Zayn, My Demons by Starset, Bulletproof by Young Guns, Give Up by Once Upon a Dead Man and MFT80s by Chris Bourne. Further proof of my very eclectic music taste…
What I’m eating – STIR FRY. I think I’m obsessed with Stir Fry… is that weird? At least it’s healthy and easy to make. I make stir fry with cabbage, pepper, onion, broccoli and carrots with either rice noodles, cous cous or rice. I’m a vegetarian so I don’t add meat.
What I’m quoting – ‘In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.’ -Nikos Kazantzakis
Slowly but surely the BookTubing community is growing. It finally found me through Jesse the Reader, a BookTuber, who I recently subscribed to. So what is the BookTube community? Well, simply it’s a safe place for book nerds to gush over all the books they love.
Jesse is an intense lover of books and he does not hide this. His channel ‘about’ reads ‘I’m a BOOK WARRIOR, here to have fun & share my love for books. :)’. He manages through TAG videos, reviews and hauls. Not only is he amazingly enthusiastic about what he recommends or talks about he is also a touch crazy, which is never bad.
Here are some examples of his videos:
