Hey bookworms!

Let’s talk about books! This is a post where I discuss all the books that I have been reading, by answering the following questions…

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I read next?

Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time to myself this week, so I wasn’t able to finish a lot of books as I was hoping for. I managed to finish one book, which was a really good book.

  1. What have I finished reading?

This book was suspenseful. It is my first book that I have read by Chris Bohjalian. I can’t wait to read his other stories. This novel tells the tale about how a flight attendant, Cassie finds her in some trouble. She just traveled to Dubai as one of her travels for work. She wakes up in the wrong hotel room, where she finds out she is laying next to some guy. She then looks at him, and realizes that he is dead. She is far way from home, and doesn’t know what she do.

I can’t wait to start watching the TV show soon.

My rating: 3.75 stars out of 5

2. What am I currently reading?

I first picked up this book up when I wanted to watch this series. I have this thing, that I like reading the books before I watch the shows, or movies.

3. What will I read next?

I love reading Ruth Ware, she writes suspenseful, and thriller novels. I haven’t read one of her books in awhile. I have been waiting for this book a little while now from the library.

Mini Absence

Hey everyone! I apologize for taking a small break, but I appreciate the love, and kind words.

On Thursday, I baby sat my niece, while my sister had an appointment. Then we got to hang out for the whole day, with my niece which is always fun. My mom got to come over at work. My boyfriend works with my sister’s boyfriend, so he got to hang out with us as well.

On Friday, I was just catching up on some sleep. I ended up having an ear infection, so I kept on waking up throughout the night. I spent the day watching TV, trying to take my mind off my ear infection. I had to make myself some of immune boosting teas.T My boyfriend and I spent the evening hanging out, and just relaxing. We watched a movie together.

We watched our shows on Saturday. it was another relaxing day. We even had take out, so we can just enjoy each other’s company even more.

I made time for reading some of my books, which is always fun.

Minus the ear infection it was fairly relaxing four days. I’m feeling a bit better.

Top Ten Tuesdays #10

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Through the Pages

I was dusting off my bookshelf and I was inspired by how much of a variety of books I have, so I thought of several cool ideas for this post.

I wanted to see if I can spell out my name with the starting letters of the books, my name is Julianne. Unfortunately I don’t have any books that start with the letter J, so I improvised with Dear John. It is the closest thing I could find.

The books I picked are…

J for Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
U for Unfu*ck Yourself by Gary John Bishop
L for Lethal White by Robert Galbraith
I for I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
A for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Other Tales by Lewis Carroll
N for Never Too Late by Gail Vaz-Oxlade
N for The Now Effect by Elisha Goldstein, PhD
E for East Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

A book that takes place in my country. I live in Canada, so I picked Anne of Green Gables written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. This book takes place in Prince Edward Island, which is somewhere I would love to travel to. My boyfriend and I were planning on going there this summer, but the whole Covid-19 pandemic sort of ruined our plans, although we’ll definitely rearrange our plans so we can visit there. I cannot wait!

Places I would to travel to… Denmark.
Well I would like to travel to other places, but I was trying to use as many books as I can. Denmark is known to be one of the happiest countries in the world, so I am so excited to travel there. I found this book quite helpful to feel cozy and enjoy the simple things in life.

The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well

Places I have traveled to… New York and North Carolina. The Fantastic Beasts takes place in New York, whereas Safe Haven takes place in North Carolina.

A book where I can relate to one of the characters the most. I would say I am like Hermione Granger. I love her, I even dressed up as her for Halloween a couple of times. I can relate to her since we are both book smart people, and we love reading.

A book that is about school or takes place at a school.

A book that turned into a movie. I picked Matilda, because I must have watched the movie a million of times growing up. My Dad would take my sister and myself to the video store, and this was our choice all the time.

A book with a number. I picked 24/6 by Tiffany Shlain. I haven’t read it yet, but what interested me in buying this book was that it encourages us to unplug at least one day a week. That is something I would like to do.

A book about poetry. These are actually my two favourite poetry books. Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein was something that was always read to me at school. The Sun and her Flowers is something I have found not too long ago, I really enjoyed it.

A book about a TV show, I picked Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham, who played Lorelai Gilmore in Gilmore Girls. She was one of my favourite characters, and she even inspired me to go to Business school.

A book about my future career. I know that I want to obtain a degree in accounting, but I haven’t actually decided which career to pursue with it. There’s a lot I can do with an accounting degree. I know that I will figure it out in time, so I’m not worried. I also haven’t had experience in every aspect of accounting in my studies yet. My uncle is an accountant, too so he is also recommends that I pursue my Masters in Business Administration.

A book from a different time period. I have picked Little House in the Big Woods from The Little House in the Prairies series written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. This book is special to me since my mama and I used to read this all the time.

A book about my favourite hobby, which is cooking. One of my specialties is cooking soups, chicken noodle soup is my go to soup. I actually learned to make it by tasting it, and figuring what to add next. I am quite proud of myself.
