tumblr has fallen

david karp is dead

yahoo is coming

your second sentence only has 5 syllables. Haiku fail. Though… they all do have 5, poem pass, haiku fail.

it wasn’t a haiku, it was a harry potter reference:

“the ministry has fallen

scrimgeour is dead

they are coming.”

#treesofreveriereadathon Day 1! First read will be A Wrinkle in Time. I’m so excited for this readathon. Idk why. Anyway, that being said I have a few other things on my plate but I’m going to try my best. Sarah has a ton of resources on her blog (so check it out) For today I’m going to try and finish this book in one day! Good luck to me…

Treesofreverie’s April Read-A-Thon Questionnaire

April 23 - I didn’t think anyone would send me numbers to answer randomly so I decided to split up the questionnaire to span each day of the read-a-thon. Here are the first five. 

01. What do you plan on reading for the Read-A-Thon? Why did you choose these books?

I posted a pic. The first book I’m reading is A Wrinkle in Time. I’ve been trying to read this book for years so now I’m trying to finally get it done!

02. Where will you be sharing your bookish updates for Treesofreverie’s April Read-A-Thon?

Yes! I’m all about social media. I’ll be using Instagram. samreads. Goodreads. And Twitter. I tend to post my reading reactions on twitter on the hashtag #samlivereads if you’re interested in following that. 

03. Are you currently taking part in any other reading challenges for 2014?

Not really. I want to take part in some book clubs that have started here on tumblr. Maybe in the next few weeks. 

04. Do you have any reading goals? What are you hoping to achieve?

Yes. I want to read 50 books this year.I’ve been making that goal for about two or three years and I have yet to achieve it…

05. Are you from a family of readers?

I suppose. No one is an avid reader like I am (or was before), but they all read when they want to. 

do you have any books to recommend with animals being a big part in it?

Hmm… of course I’m drawing a blank to every animal related movie ever.

*if you are reading this and know of a book, please reblog this with the book!

Chaos Walking Series. All three books have animals, but probably the first one, an animal is more prevalent.

Writing about people crying?

Anonymous

thewritingcafe:

If you are trying to make the reader feel these emotions or become emotional, avoid the word “cry”. It’s used too commonly to have an effect on the reader other than to tell them what is happening. Use other words (provided in the first link) and describe your character.

Describe what your character looks like. Has their face gone red? Are their eyes red too? Or just puffy? Is their hair stuck to their face? Is their mouth quivering?

Describe what they’re doing. Are they breathing heavily? Are they taking in too many sharp, jerky breaths in an attempt not to cry? Are they shaking?

#treesofreveriereadathon starts April 23 and these are the books I’ve decided to read (roughly). Will I get to them all? Who knows, but hopefully I will. Haha! Thanks Sarah for hosting this huge reading event.

1. Do you get intimidated by large books?

Yes and no. I used to look at them as this big challenge and I’d…

Thank you, Lauren, for tagging me :) I really like your questions, so here goes nothing!

If you could ask any question, but just 1, to any author, what would you ask? Who is your favorite author?

Do you prefer paperback or hardback format? Paperback only because they’re lighter and cheaper. I fancy hardback, but paperback is just more convenient. 

Do you have a favourite quote from a book? If so, what is it? I’m stuck between this one from I Am the Messenger - “Maybe everyone can live beyond what they’re capable of.” and HP & the Philosopher’s Stone - “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

Which book was your favourite as a child? the Arthur (the aardvark) books. I loved those things. I think I still have them and The Westing Game

How many books have you read so far this year? 7, but 21 if I count all the manga I’ve read. 

Some more questions

- Do you read graphic novels?

- Do you listen to music while you read? If yes, what kind?

- Is there a book/book series you want to see turned into a movie or tv adaptation?

- Have you met your favorite author before?

- Back to music, is there a song or artist that you think of when you read a specific book (or vice versa)?

I’ll tag (feel free to do it or not. It’s all good)
