Tag Thursday: New Year’s Resolutions Book Tag

The beauty of these tags is that sometimes, someone will suggest you to do them. For the last few tags I’ve filled in, I’ve found them online myself. This one is different – someone actually thought of me to do it. ZeeZee tagged me in the New Year’s Book Resolutions post on her blog, and I love this as it’s a great way to think deeper about what’s on your bookshelf. It’s a little break from the book reviews too.

Books with Super Funny Titles

One thing we need right now is something to cheer us up. I know I do, anyway. We’ve been pretty much reliving the same day for the last year, so having a giggle every now and then is completely necessary.

Need something to brighten up your bookshelves? These are perfect.

Books That Will Make You LOL

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday, run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

When the world is falling apart, like ours is right now, the only thing to do is to laugh. Luckily we’ve got so much to raise a smile, whether it’s looking back over a plethora of TikTok videos or picking up a hilarious book.

Tag Thursday: The Gilmore Girls Book Tag

The world seems to be having a bit of a moment right now, and I’ve been coming back to some of my comforts regularly to calm me. One of my greatest comforts is Gilmore Girls, and I’m midway through a re-watch of the main series. (I probably won’t watch the revival though, we don’t talk about the revival in this house.)

I wanted to tie in my (and Rory’s) love of books with the show, so this tag I found on Heather’s Book Tube channel, Bookable is the perfect way to do so.

Films that were better than the book

This post is part of Top 10 Tuesday, run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

While we sit crying into our large Coke, lamenting what we think is a shambles of an adaptation, there’s no need to despair. It might be easy to forget that there are so many other great adaptations that have been just as good, if not maybe better, than their literary basis.

Yes, I did really say that. Sometimes, the movie completely does the book justice. It’s a huge crime among book bloggers to say it, I know, but I can think of just a few books where the screen comes pretty close to the story on the page.
