No you are not losing your mind, it really isn’t Thursday.. I’m just very late. This week was weird and I just didn’t have the time to write up the post. Worst book to movie adaptations have been on my mind all week though so I figured I’ll post a bit later. It’s the first time I’m so late to post my Thursday Movie Picks but I didn’t want to make it my first ever skip in years either. Anyway, here are my picks for worst book to movie adaptations. And as always, I’ve added my little twist and made it a theme within a theme.
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.
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!
First Television Edition of the year and I’m so excited! It was a bit difficult to pick four because I also wanted to have the knowledge of at least one or more books under my belt! Luckily I have read exactly enough to share four teen shows, because I’m feeling very youthful at the moment. So here are my picks, guilty pleasures and all, and let me know which ones have you seen yourself!

Had to work this morning so I came home pretty late and actually thought about not writing a Commercial Break. But I already skipped last week and I’m actually really trying to push through this weird bloggers block I seem to be suffering from. So, I have my evening coffee (I know, I might be crazy), some chocolate popcorn (delicious), and two weeks to summarise. So, let’s go!

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.

Since my last Commercial Break I’ve gone through a huge emotional roller coaster and it hasn’t been nice. Though now that I’ve enjoyed my vacation for almost a week I feel like things are slowly getting better but I’m still an emotional wreck. Nothing seems to be helping either, books, movies, shows, not to mention, writing. But I’m hanging in there, trying to be strong and not think negative thoughts, especially considering what this week is going to be like for me.
July was quite a slow month for me but in a way, it was still a pretty decent reading month because I finished 4 books, and one of them was quite the challenge.
This is going to be such a random post but hey, isn’t that what blogging is all about – being random! So here I go, with my Pokémon Go Book Tag created by Read At Midnight, which I wasn’t tagged in, but found it on Big City Bookwork, and just wanted to participate anyway. By the way, I don’t play Pokémon Go either – so this is as random as it can get!
Every week I promise reviews, and then every other day I sit down, and I’m like, I’ll watch Masterchef Australia and after it’s done, I’ll write a review. Two hours later, oh man, that Nashville episode was pretty good.
