BookWorm Gift Ideas: Wooden Watches

Lets just be honest here, finding the perfect present for anyone is a hard task. And when that person happens to be your new partner, it gets even more complicated. But, since I’m a book blog, I thought, I would put my own spin on the age old issue of finding a book for someone: What do you buy for a bookworm?

I can’t explain why, but it is just hard to find a present for bookworms! I mean, sure, get them a book. But I guarantee they already own it. So maybe go for some bookmarks? But then you have the issue of if they even use them. However, there is something that you can pretty much guarantee people use.. And that would be watches. Now, hear me out. I know that with cell phones and what not coming into play, watches may seem forgotten, but they so shouldn’t be. And I think JORD Wooden Watches are a perfect gift for a special someone, or hey, even yourself.

There is something so personal, and so sweet about buying something someone would use everyday. Every time they wear it, they’ll think of you, etc. etc, all that cute mushy gushy stuff that we read in contemporary novels. Plus, honestly, even if you don’t buy it for someone, these watches are gorgeous enough to keep for yourself!

I received this beautiful piece from JORD with the total intention of giving it to my boyfriend, and I totally promise I still am.. Not as willingly, but I still am. But they have so many different options to choose from, it was hard to not go back and get one for myself too!The zebrawood stood out immediately to me, which is why I chose this particular timepiece. Being completely honest, it was the packaging that sold me right off the bat. I mean, this gorgeous wooden box it comes in, along with the aesthetics of the entire thing are ridiculously beautiful.

Book Review: The Season

[book-info]

I won’t lie, I was kind of hoping this book was going to be more… Pride and Prejudice-y? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I did get the hints of it throughout, but it just never really stuck in with the plot. However, if you don’t get caught up on the fact that it’s supposed to be a Pride and Prejudice retelling, and you just read it for the book it is, then it’s definitely a good contemporary read. The romance is adorable, the main character is actually likable (thank god), and I loved the sister/family dynamic in it.

I do gotta admit, it was weird reading about a book set in Dallas because, for once in my reading life, I actually knew every place they were talking about. I get why people get so excited to have books set in their hometowns now, because you can actually picture it.

But, contrary to what pretty much anyone who even knows me slightly would think, the “Darcy” of this book wasn’t my favorite part. I know, shock and awe, but it was actually the “Elizabeth & Jane” relationship we got to see. I’m all for sisters being close, which is why I loved To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series so much, and this book does it wonderfully. Of course, the characters and relationship was changed and they were the same age versus older and younger sibling, but I’ll take what I can get.

But can we just talk about our “Darcy” for a second, because I’m not a happy little camper here.

I’m expecting swoony worthy, 1995, Colin Firth Darcy, and honestly, we got a more awkward version of the 2005 one. I just… why.

I mean, pardon my language, but come the fuck on. I’m convinced there isn’t going to be a Darcy that matches up to Colin Firth’s, and I’m not okay with it. /rant

There isn’t a romance book that’s ever going to top the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth, and anyone who says differently can post up. I read Pride and Prejudice adaptions/retelling solely for that relationship to be shown again and again, and I just didn’t get that from this one.

So as a Pride and Prejudice retelling, it’s gotta be 2 pumpkin cats. But, as a contemporary novel itself, I’ll give it 3.5.

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!

Life Update + I Started a Youtube Channel!

Soooooooo… I’ve kind of been gone for a while.. Oops. I promise I’m going to try to be better though, especially since I have so many book reviews to catch up on! But I’m not going to lie, I was gone because I got distracted with my new booktube channel.

I’m so excited to have finally taken the leap, and made my channel! I’m going to be doing a lot of book related videos, obviously, but I’m also including my planner video ideas in there as well! It’ll mainly consist of plan with me videos and sticker hauls, but for the most part it is a booktube channel!

It would mean the world to me if you would subscribe and check out some of my videos! And if you have a channel too, please link it down in the comments so I can check it out!

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!

#Spookathon 2017

I think everyone should take a moment to clap. I’m doing not only one, but two read-a-thons in October. What is this? Maybe if I don’t question it, it’ll work out and I’ll actually finish them.

#FrightFall Read-a-thon: 2017 Edition

I’ve decided to make it a priority to not only spend my free time reading more, but to also get back into blogging again. And what better way than to make my first Read-A-Thon for this time of year, and frightful one?! See what I did there. I know, the hilarity of it all.

Anywhooters, this one is hosted by Seasons of Reading, and it goes on all month long of October! You can find all of the guidelines on their blog, and sign up on their sign up post that’s up! And after stumbling upon this Read-A-Thon, I’m so excited to get started tomorrow morning!

Also, lemme just say, I know that Harry Potter doesn’t really seem to fall into this category, but listeeeeennn.. It has magical creatures and Halloween happens at some point, so let me live. Also I have to read this for one of my classes (isn’t that awesome?!?) so I’m including it. Thank ya very much.

And now here’s the rest of my TBR:

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books That Feature Characters I Love

Of course, right after I say how badly I want to try and keep up with Top Ten Tuesday, I almost end up missing a week. But if I wasn’t a mess, would I even really be me? If ya don’t know, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the girls over at The Broke & The Bookish. This week’s topic is: Ten Books That Feature Characters I Love.

Since I’m super late to posting this, I’m going to just list this in a lazy list formation. But seriously, if someone can tell me where I can make good collages, please let me know. I used to use picmonkey, but now they’re charging $8 a month or something like that, and ya girl ain’t made of money. Money for books, yes, money for collages, no.

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
