3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge: Day 3

So I’m actually sick, which is great because I was just sick like a month ago?? @ my body what is this :/// My favourite part of this is that my doctor decided I don’t need any days off because – and I quote – I work at an office.

Anyway. Once again, thanks to Denia @ Denia Reads for tagging me!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

So my introduction about sickness was to say that I’m doing something a little bit lazy today. I’m going fir the first lines of the book I just started this morning: How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake.

She waits until we’re driving over the bridge to tell me. This is a strategic move. Wait until your temperamental daughter is suspended over the Atlantic Ocean to drop the bomb, thereby decreasing the chance that she’ll fling open the car door and hurl herself over the edge.

TBH I feel like the hardest part of this challenge was choosing people to tag… So today, if you’re reading this & wanna play, consider yourself tagged! Cheers!

3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge: Day 2

Okay, I’m back, I did in fact remember about this! Thanks again to Denia @ Denia Reads for tagging me!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

You might actually not know this about me yet, but one of my all time favourite books, a book that I would die for, a book I would take with me to a deserted island if I were allowed to choose only one – this book is Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. And that’s where today’s quote comes from!

However, this sceptic had one fanaticism. This fanaticism was neither a dogma, nor an idea, nor an art, nor a science; it was a man: Enjolras. Grantaire admired, loved, and venerated Enjolras. To whom did this anarchical scoffer unite himself in this phalanx of absolute minds? To the most absolute. In what manner had Enjolras subjugated him? By his ideas? No. By his character. A phenomenon which is often observable. A sceptic who adheres to a believer is as simple as the law of complementary colors. That which we lack attracts us. No one loves the light like the blind man. The dwarf adores the drum-major. The toad always has his eyes fixed on heaven. Why? In order to watch the bird in its flight. Grantaire, in whom writhed doubt, loved to watch faith soar in Enjolras. He had need of Enjolras. That chaste, healthy, firm, upright, hard, candid nature charmed him, without his being clearly aware of it, and without the idea of explaining it to himself having occurred to him.

3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge: Day 1

Hey, guys!!! I’ve been tagged in this cool little thing by Denia @ Denia Reads! And let me tell you, choosing a quote is lowkey the most difficult thing I had to do all week…

Anyway, The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

 

So my quote is from Release by Patrick Ness which I read just a few weeks ago.

Raising his eyes to look directly into Linus’s face was maybe the scariest thing he’d had to do all day long, but it was only the free-falling terror that always accompanied hope.

Today I’m tagging Regina @ Bookish In Bed, Sarah @ S. Ames-Foley & Hannah @ Word Weaver’s. Hopefully I will remember to do this again tomorrow…

Anyway, did you know Children of Blood and Bone is on sale on Book Depository right now?? Buy it if you still haven’t!

LGBT+ ownvoices bingo: Week 1, Day 1

DX7VhXDXUAAAVK8

We’re starting!!!

By which I mean we decided it would be the easiest to start at midnight your local time & it’s midnight here in Poland now!

So I made a post last week telling you guys about this idea me & Charlotte had to do a lgbt+ ownvoices bingo. It’s basically because we want to read more lgbt+ books and there’s nothing that motivates you to read more like some kind of a challenge!! The ownvoices part is extra important to us, though, since we want to read books with good representation. It means that finding books to fill up your bingo card becomes harder, but we believe the pleasure from reading is gonna be greater! We compiled a rec list to help you out a little bit with that.

LGBT+ ownvoices bingo

Hey guys!! Today I’m here with a cool little idea. My friend Charlotte (go follow her on goodreads, twitter & her book blog!!) and I are running this LGBT+ ownvoices bingo from March 16th till April 16th!

Basically we want to read more lgbt books & what’s a better way than to make it into some kind of challenge? What’s important to us is that all stories are ownvoices, both so we can enjoy better representation & because ownvoices authors always deserve more love!! You can also read about it here on twitter & on goodreads. Continue reading “LGBT+ ownvoices bingo”
