Good morning to you all! Today I am off to London Film & Comicon and I finally get to live out my dream of doing Disney cosplay tomorrow so I’m rather excited! I have scheduled posts until Sunday so the blog won’t be empty but do be prepared for a lot of excited tweets and Instagram spam over the weekend.
Today I’m sharing a long over due post and I do apologise to those mentioned in it that it has taken m this long to get it up, but if I’m honest I never really got back into the blogging game until the past week or so after my holiday in May. Anyway, the post.
Back in May I took part in the lovely Char’s Blogger Book Swap. I’m always on the look out for new material to read and I had some books that I wanted to share. It worked really well as Char had thought out the process thoroughly and I hope she hosts another soon I can take part in!
My partner was Charlene of Tartan Mouth who turned out to be incredibly easy to pick out books for and lovely to communicate with. She sent me an email with a detailed idea of what sort of books she would enjoy, and although now I can’t remember what I sent her, she did seem to be happy with my choices. Her parcel for me was pretty well thought out too.
For starters, the paper was pretty damn awesome! Then inside not only had she included three books, but she also included some hot chocolate sachets so I could curl up with a hot drink and a good book before bed! So kind of her and they have all since been drunk in the never ending search for a good night sleep! I haven’t started the books I have received yet because I’m still reading Game of Thrones but I look forward to cracking on once I’m finished.
Firstly, The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson is a book I already own and have read earlier on in the year. But as I did enjoy it I gave this copy to my mum who is taking it on holiday with her later on this month. Waste not want not!
The second book is one of those iconic books you feel you should always read but never get around to buyin, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I know nothing about it except that it is one that pops up on the 100 Greatest Reads of All Time lists so I do look forward to having a read of it.
And the final book is a chick lit book, something I always enjoy and more over one by the author of my teenage year favourite The Princess Diaries, Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabot. I do like Meg Cabot as an author and I’m definitely intrigued by the title being a size 12 myself. I’ll let you know how I get on!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
