FAVOURITE POSTS OF JUNE

Hi everyone. So is it just me or did June just go by so fast. I thought it would be much slower but it had other plans. Cant believe we are halway through 2018 already.

This is me trying to understand how the month went by so quickly.

How has the month been for you? Mine has been fun and stressful. So many things happened this month,I started my IT which is fun and also a little disappointing. I met up with some friends I haven seen in a while.

A lot of sad stuff happened in my country too. I don’t want this to become a political rant but it hurts when you see your fellow Nigerians dying for no good reason. Their deaths could have been easily avoided but because of the rampant corruption and bad leadership we have lost more lives in recent times. I’m angry, not with the government but with myself because I feel so powerless and I can’t do anything to stop it. A lot of shit has been happening all over the world too and some days I just want to give up on humanity.

Well enough with the doom and gloom. Here are my favourite posts of this month. Enjoy.

  • Nandini’s post about the challenges of being an Indian Bibliophile and the Indian Lit readathon she organised with her fellow Indian book bloggers. Anyone is free to participate and you can see the prompts in the post. So if you want to read more diverse books sign up for this and get your TBR ready. 😉
  • Laura @ Whatshotblog talks about an issue that been debated on for a while and she believes its time for book bloggers to get paid and I agree with her. We put so much time and effort into our blogs to promote books we love so I think we should get paid like other bloggers in different niches. Although yes some publishers and authors don’t have the budget for it but what about those that have. The part about lifestyle bloggers being paid to promote a book while book bloggers aren’t paid to promote the same book is just unfair too. So check out the post and see if you agree or disagree.
  • In a messy world talks about why she wants to be more like Mr Bean and to be honest it really brightened up my day. If you have watched Mr Beans’s movies you will notice that he is carefree and does what he wants regardless of what people might think of him which results in hilarious situations. So here’s to living life, being ourselves , pursuing our passions , being our awkward glorious selves and not giving a damn what people think.

  • Vicky talks about privilege in the publishing and book blogging community and its a great post and I could relate to a lot of her points cause hello, International book blogger here. I think we all should read this post and start doing something about this.
  • .Afoma Umesi interviewed Atoke, the author of +234 – An Awkward guide to being a Nigerian and I laughed so much reading this post. It might make a lot more sense to my fellow Nigerians but you all have to read this and also all the other interviews Afoma has done. She has interviewed authors, book bloggers, bookstagramers and editors.
  • Okay time for some shameless self promo but I interviewed Marija of Inside my library mind book blog and it was so much fun and im proud of the post so check it out guys. Marija is a great blogger. So if you want to know more about Marija and her blog and feast your eyes on some Brooklyn nine-nine Gifs , now is your chance. Go ahead, no need to thank me 😌😌

Hello Marija. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

  • Hey everyone, my name’s Marija, I am a student and blogger and I blog @ Inside My Library Mind. I like coffee (a lot), video games and books obviously.
What’s life like as an international book blogger?
  • It is what it is. Being an international blogger can be really frustrating, since ARCs aren’t as available, we can’t go to conventions or author events etc. so that can be a bit discouraging at times. I find that a lot of people who aren’t from the US or the UK feel the same way and share the same grievances. International bloggers tend to feel a bit left out at times, so that’s something that I struggle with a bit. Other than that, when it comes to other readers and bloggers, it’s amazing.

UNFORGETTABLE BOOKISH MEMORIES TAG // BOOKS, HIDDEN BOOKSHOPS AND READING BOOKS OUT OF ORDER

I saw this tag on Kristin @Kristin Kraves Books blog and I just had to do it. This tag was created by Lisa@A Book Calls. Hope you guys enjoy reading this, all my precious memories related to books.

No. 1: The First Book You Ever Read (Or Was Read To You)

enid blyton

The first book I can remember reading is The Little White Rabbit and Other Stories by Enid Blyton. I read it so many times and it had some illustrations in it. I can still remember the story of the white rabbit who fell into a barrel of tar (I think)  and his mom washed him and hung him up to dry. Can’t really remember the other stories but I know there were some about fairies and little kids. The book was a little worn out before I read it because my sisters had read it before me. I have no idea where it is now though. Continue reading “UNFORGETTABLE BOOKISH MEMORIES TAG // BOOKS, HIDDEN BOOKSHOPS AND READING BOOKS OUT OF ORDER”

FAIRIES, A NECKLACE AND A LITTLE GIRL ON A QUEST: THE CITY ON THE OTHER SIDE BOOK REVIEW

I’ve been really getting into graphic novel lately and this one did not disappoint.

The city on the other side is a middle grade fantasy graphic novel about a girl called Isabel who lives in San Francisco with a mother who isn’t interested in her and a father who is too busy with his sculptures. One day during a visit to her father she stumbles upon a fairy on a mission to deliver a magical necklace and is thrust into a war between fairies. With a new friend Benjie and mushroom faerie Button, Isabel must embark on this quest with the fate of the faerie world and the human world on the line.

First of all the graphics are really gorgeous. It really added to the book and made the world of the fairies feel much more real. The art is vibrant and colourful. The Seelie and Unseelies are both fairies but when a war breaks out between them, all that lies between the Unseelies and total victory is a necklace. The faeries come in different shapes and sizes which make the faerie world  more intriguing.

MINI REVIEWS: DANCE, MAN PETS, BUTTERFLIES AND COMICS

HAPPY NEW MONTH EVERYONE!!! 🎊🎊🎉

Recently I went on a graphic novel/comics binge on Netgalley and got approved for a bunch of them. I found out that graphic novels helped bring me out of reading slump as they are short, easy to read and bursting with great illustrations. I hardly used to read graphic novels before apart from Japanese manga I read occasionally.

So here are the ones I loved.
