Announcing Things!

Hola, bookworms!

Today I’m not going to write a book review, do a book tag, or even talk about Harry Potter’s excellent character growth. Nope, today I’m going to announce stuff (yay). This isn’t going to be a long blog post, since I don’t have a lot of time and because, quite frankly, announcing stuff is kind of boring. So fasten your seatbelts, and enjoy this extremely fast ride (filled with readathons and Simon vs. goodness)!

Dewey’s 24 hour readathon

Okay, this readathon is one of the reasons why I have so little time to write this post, namely, it starts in 2 hours. It turns out I’m pretty bad in announcing things, since I forgot this readathon was happening till ten minutes ago (despite the fact I found out about it and wrote the date in my planner days earlier). I’ve always wanted to participate in a readathon, and this one seemed like the perfect fit, it’s only 24 hours long and seemingly great for newbie’s like me (also, I’m really behind on my Goodreads challenge, so this is a good excuse to catch up). During this readathon I’d like to finish ‘A Thousand Pieces of You’ by Claudia Gray, and maybe start ‘The Raven Boys’ or ‘Winter’ by Marissa Meyer. Anyways, I’m very excited to participate in this readathon and I hope you bookworms will read a long with me (I’m also going to be tweeting stuff during the entire thing, so if you’re interested in that, you can follow me @sophthebookworm).

Spring break

It’s finally here, two glorious weeks of spring break! I’ve really been looking forward to it (duh), and I can’t wait to have more time to blog. So, in order to get myself to actually do stuff and not lie in bed all day, I’m going to try to write 7 blogposts in 14 days! (That must be achievable, right?). Wish me luck!

Meeting Becky Albertalli

Yup, you’ve read that right, I’m going to meet Becky Albertalli! For those who don’t know, she is the author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, one of my favorite books of all time. She is coming to a local bookstore for a signing, and I think there is going to be an Oreo bake-off. I’ve never been to an author event-thingy before, and to be honest I’m kind of nervous. I’ll go with one of my friends who has also read the book (and loved it), and I’ll probably be writing a post about the entire thing, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Okay guys, that were all the announcements! I hope you enjoyed reading my first announcement post ever, but now I’ve really got to go, since the readathon is starting in 1 hour and I’ve got to post this quick (this also means there is no time for proof reading, so if you’ve found some horrendous grammar mistakes, you now know why).

Bye, Sophie

A epitome of my summer holiday

Hello, bookworms!

I have written a epitome of my summer holiday, enjoy!

500

My summer started on a Friday afternoon, but my mental holiday started the morning after school finished (Saturday). This might sound crazy, but I am sure you recognize it when I explain it to you: ‘Do You know that feeling you get when school ends and you are free? But the next morning, when you stand with a heavy backpack in front of the closed school gate, you discover that you thought you where free but now you truly are.’ The moment when that realization kicked in my mental/real holiday started. No more getting up early but too late because you hit the snooze button 7 times! No more wasting your whole day in a classroom (Instead you waste it in bed)! No more making hours of homework when you could be blogging, your free!

Not long after this first vacation milestone, I reached the second: ‘The moment you step out of the plane in a foreign land.’ Only this time I had a pot around my arm, that’s right ladies and gents, I broke my wrist (Actually I had a fracture by my growing scale but I do not think this information is important for this story)! I broke it, on the monkey bars, three days before we flew to Croatia. While I was swinging backwards, my left hand, slightly moist with sweat, slipped and I was flying. The next four hours I spent in the hospital doing some x-rays, drinking scorching hot chocolate, and waiting, I did a lot of waiting.

The rest of the my vacation was fun, despite my broken wrist. I did a lot of snorkling in Croatia, I read a lot, too. When I flew back I was bored and rested, ready to start school again. That brings me to where I am now, the first Sunday afternoon of the new school year. I am not rested and bored anymore and I desperately need another vacation, all the signs that things are back to normal, just like my blogging schedule. I am sorry I didn’t post for a long time but now I am back. You can expect special, bookrelated posts on Wednesdays and reviews on Sundays. With all that I wanted to say being said, ( Not really, I am a huge chatterbox, I never run out of things to say) I am going to wrap up this post.

Bye, Sophie.
