The Book List- Part VII

25) Boy Meets Boy by David Leviathan
This was genuinely one of the cutest books I’ve read this year! I read it right around Christmas and it felt so good because the book is narrated by a high school boy and is full of happiness, and love and hope and it’s extremely adorable.

26) Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah
This was the first book I read written by someone else but based in Agatha Christie’s world. And it was equally brilliant.

27) The Testament by John Grisham
This was my second John Grisham book on my road to reading John Grisham all over again and it was really, really good. The book focuses around a super rich man who dies and leaves his final will in the name of an illegitimate daughter no one knows about. The ending will leave you asking for so much more.

 

So this ends my book lists for this year and I’ve successfully read 30 books this year 😀

Week Four!: What to blog about

Hello everyone 😀
This is Week 4 of ateenagediaryonline’s BGTB project(it’s amazing I’m not even kidding) The topic for this week is What to blog about *drumrolls* I finally know what to write about! So here goes my post for this week:

When I first started out with my blog(9th grade), it was going to only consist of essays and stories and stuff like that. However, now I blog about anything and everything. And this can also be the case with you! Your blog can either have one specific topic you blog about(eg: A food blog), or you can blog just about things you love(music, literature, movies), or you can have a completely versatile blog and include everything under the sun(what you had for breakfast, an appreciation post about your best friend, guy problems, book reviews). Blogging ends up being really very easy if you blog about things you love and want to invest time in. Just because someone really famous has a blog about clothes, or shopping styles, doesn’t mean thats what YOU need. You might hate shopping and talking about clothes non-stop.
However, to help everyone there are so, so many different things you could post on your blog and these are a few of them:
1) Book/ movie/ tv show/ songs reviews, they go a long way because you’re bound to find someone online with similar interests.
2) If you’ve recently taken a vacation, describe it.
3) Talk about pizza!
4) Your plans for Christmas.

So, in the end you can blog about absolutely anything! There are a million great blogs online and it’s no shame to read their posts and try to inoculate those in your own blog. No one ever starts without actually reading something and getting an idea. I think, the main idea is to have fun and remember why you’re doing this(I’m doing this because I want to get internet famous, jk, I love writing!)

 

The Book List- Part VI

21) The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
This book took all of my head into it. It was so clever, and complicated, and extremely brilliant. There were times when the book had really tough language but the message the book sent across was honestly great.

22) The God of Small Things by Arundati Roy
This was one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. The book talked about two siblings(brother and sister) and their lives and the lives of their parents and the lives of their relatives. It was so extremely beautifully written and it’s definitely a must read for everyone. The most heartbreaking line was: ‘And she mourned the death of a man she had once loved, and her kids had once loved.’

23) A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler
I had wanted to read this book all year and it certainly did not disappoint. I was hooked from chapter one and finished the book in three days.

24) The Listerdale Mystery by Agatha Christie
*hides from you because too many Agatha Christie’s in one year* This was another short stories book and as good as the rest of her books.
