THE OSCARS: YA BOOK-TO-MOVIE ADAPTATION EDITION

Hi everyone,

Long time no see! I've been so busy with school recently and my house is being decorated right now and...yeah, you get the point.

Anyway, since the Oscars are on tonight and all that, I thought it would be a good time to celebrate some of my favourite movies...movies based on young adult books, that is. Basically, I've just taken some of the catagories from the Oscar's and chosen my own winners from YA book-to-movie adaptations.

I've not seen anybody else doing this, I don't think, but if I've accidentally stolen it from somewhere please let me know! Also, sorry for the weird formatting; blogger hates me and I'm crap with computers.

THE OTP TAG

Happy Valentines day everyone!

I may not have a date for today (or ever), but that doesn't stop me from celebrating the love of some of my favourite couples. Fictional couples, that is.

Today I'm going to be doing the OTP tag, which was created on youtube by Kirstin Reads. I'm not limiting myself to just book couples here, mostly because I need to let out my Teen Wolf feels...

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: BOOKS I WAS SPOILED FOR


TOP 5 WEDNESDAY IS A WEEKLY MEME CREATED BY GINGERREADSLAINEY. YOU CAN FIND ALL OF THE INFORMATION IN THE GOODREADS GROUP


Hi everyone,

It's Wednesday, which means it's time for another T5W post! This weeks topic is top 5 books you were spoiled for, and boy do I have a lot to say about it...

Unfortunately, I have one particular friend who has the same book taste as me and is incapable of keeping her mouth shut if something shocking happens. I also have access to the internet. Because of this, I've been spoiled for way more books than is acceptable. Here are just five of the most devastating ones.

NOTE: Sorry there are no pictures for the last two books. I've been having loads of problems with blogger recently, and today it's decided not to let me insert pictures anymore. If there's any weird formatting I apologise for that too; I don't know what's going on.

'HAMILTON' BOOK TAG

If you've been in earshot of me in the past few months, you will know that I am deeply obsessed with the musical Hamiton. Seriously, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to all the friends who have heard me attempting to rap. This show has taken over my life. Therefore, when I discovered there was a Hamilton BOOK TAG on youtube (created by the wonderful Maureen Keavy) I knew I had to do it as soon as humanly possible.

This tag might not make much sense if you haven't listened to the Hamilton cast recording (or been one of the lucky people who have seen the show live), in which case I advise you to GO AND LISTEN TO THE HAMILTON CAST RECORDING. The whole thing's on Spotify, so you really have no excuse not to.

Disclaimer: I did leave out a few questions I couldn't think of good answers for. Sorry!

WARNING: This post will contain spoilers. All spoilers are clearly marked, but if you really don't want to hear spoilers from the Harry Potter or the Mortal Instruments series you might want to leave now. Read at your own risk!
