Thursday Movie Picks 2020

Thursday Movie Picks: Secret Doorways / Worlds

There is a sense of whimsy about this week’s theme and I love it! Secret doorways and worlds are mostly fantasy related to me and I adore fantasy! True, the book genre is more successful compared to the movie genre but that’s okay. For this week I’ve found three recommendations about secret doorways and/or worlds that I consider mediocre. It’s not that they are bad, they just… haven’t been made with care. Ironically, all three have a 5.8 or 5.9 rating on IMDb so they truly are mediocre.

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Book to TV Adaptations

It’s that time of the month again where instead of movies I recommend TV shows. It’s always exciting but this month I get to talk about book to TV adaptations! Now, since I haven’t done this type of recommendation list before, I figured I could make this week even more special. So, instead of recommending adaptations that exist, I’m listing shows that are coming out in the (hopefully) near future. Since this pandemic is still affecting our lives and everything around, two of these may take forever. That being said, these are three upcoming book to TV adaptations that I’m very excited for!

My Top 5 Favourite Books I Read in 2019

This year I’m trying to bring back my Fictional Friday feature where I share something book related every (other) week. I don’t want to make any promises, as you know, last year was a blogging disaster for me. Especially when it came to book posts which I think were non-existent. Yet, your girl still loves books and is surrounded by them daily (literally sleeping in between bookshelves, guys). In other words, it’s time to share my favourite books from 2019.

CB: Going Monthly & Regrets

It’s been another hot minute since the last Commercial Break. I’ve been somewhat off-center with my time management lately and kept pushing writing into tomorrow’s duties. Now it’s been three weeks, most of January is gone and it feels like I’m rusty again. No worries though, it was all part of a plan. Because Commercial Break will from now be a monthly feature. Why? Well, let me explain…

Fictional Friday: 70 Books I Read in 2017

Here comes one of the most important posts of the year, the reading wrap up of the entire year! 2017 for me was pretty great, considering I read 70 books and so many of those books were actually pretty darn good. I did have a few misses but not the worst year, considering I DNF’d only two books, one less than last year. There are a lot of YA romance novels and romance novels in this list because I was pushing myself to finish my reading challenge with easy reads all year. But without any further ado, find out which books I loved, which ones I didn’t and which I felt neutral about!

Reading Wrap Up: July

These images are taken from my personal bookstagram account

Well another month has passed and I’m still on track with my reading challenge. It may seem like a weird thing to say, considering I had a month off from work this past July, but it was a surprise to me. Partly because I didn’t feel like reading at the beginning of summer, and then I decided to pick up a massive book. Luckily, everything worked out well, and I actually managed to finish four books, and start the fifth before the month ended.
