This post is inspired by the lovely Kristin over @Kristin Kraves Books who included my Reading Like Rory Gilmore Read-a-thon in one of her weekly favourites! Being noticed for creating fun and engaging content was such a wonderful feeling and gave me some much needed encouragement, so THANK YOU Kristin! I loved this idea so much that I had to do it myself and highlight some of my favourite posts from the month of October! I hope to make this a monthly feature so I can celebrate the creativity and brilliance of the blogging community.
Anyway, here’s a few posts I loved this month! Enjoy!
Mara @MarasFoldedPages is Participating in NaNoWriMo 2020 for the first time! She shares her plans to work on her YA/NA fantasy novel and recommends some great books to help out with the daunting planning and prepping process! As a fellow NaNoWriMo participant I wish her all the luck in the world and all the encouragement to keep writing!
Zoë @Reading by the Moonlight shared her Favourite Classic Literature Characters and reminded my why I love classic literature! Jo, Dorian and Lizzie Bennett are among some of my favourites along with so many others mentioned! If you’re an English student/graduate like myself or just love the classics then this is the post for you!
Pilar @The Bookworm Shelf wrote a wonderful post Reacting to Bad Reviews of My Favourite Books, where she responded to 2-star reviews about The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. Although I’ve yet to read The Hating Game, I loved reading her responses to some of these reviews, it definitely put a smile on my face and even made me giggle!
Becca @Toastie Books posted her answers to the My Life in Books Tag. I remember doing this tag years ago and it was lovely reading her answers and even reflecting on my own! If you’re looking for a good book tag then this is a good one to check out!
Alison @Antari Reads shared her list of book universes she did NOT want to live in and I thought it was such a fun and different idea! I’ve just finished writing a post about the bookish worlds I’d love to live in but I’ve never thought to think about the ones I’d want to avoid!
Charlotte @Mug Full of Books posted her list of Books With A Great Screen Adaptation, and as someone who is a massive book and film lover, this post was right up my street! I have to agree that The Martian and Ready Player One are great adaptations and if you’ve yet to read/watch them then you need to add them to your TBR/W now!
Alyssa @Read ’em and Weep shared her review of The Invisible Life of Addie La Rue. If you’ve been following this blog then you’ll know that I’m obsessed with this book and I always love reading other peoples reviews!
I also really enjoyed Ella @Ella isn’t studying’s post about her Anti TBR and Popular Books She Won’t Be Reading. I thought this was a really unique way at looking at your TBR, even if I am a little heartbroken at her decision not to read any Austen or Maas!
HUGE congratulations are in order for Sarena over @The Reading Restaurant as she announced that her and her husband are expecting a baby next April! In the post she shares the fabulous news and the beginning of this wonderfully exciting journey! If you’re looking for lovely and heartwarming post then this one is for you!
Cherelle @Cherelle the Bibliophile posted her book review for The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black. Again this another book review I just loved reading, I truly felt like I was there with her as she shared her reaction to Black’s epic conclusion!
And finally @Pigpen Reads shared their experience about Buying a Mystery Book from Etsy and I’m obsessed with this idea! I’d seen things like this all over Pinterest and had no idea that things like this existed!
