1. What book do you wish could be a film?

1) Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe. Or the night circus. I actually think Ari and Dante have a director and script and some company bought the rifts for the night circus so hopefully they’ll both happen one day!

2. What is your favourite Genre?

2) fantasy for sure! Though this year I’ve read a lot of contemporary.

3. What two books would you like schools to have for Gcse? (Gcse is basically grades.)

3) the hate u give and Starfish.

4. What two bloggers do you recommend? 

4) Flavia @ flaviathebibliophile and Lia @ Lost in a Story

(Unfortunately I haven’t go the link to there blog.)

5. You’re favourite post you have done this year? 

5) yikes… that’s difficult!! A recent favorite of mine is 2018 releases I’m excited for

6. You didn’t blog about books and films what would you have blogged about instead? 

6) probably cooking/baking. I really enjoy doing both of those things 

7. What made you want to be a youtuber?
 

7) it looked like a lot of fun and I wanted to work on my ‘public speaking’ skills

8. What book was your least favourite read? 

8) Allegiant. Couldn’t even make it past the halfway mark. So boring!!

9. If you could meet one book fictional character who would it be and why? 

9) ahhh this is hard!! I’d have to say… hermione from Harry Potter. I think we’d have a long fun conversation 

10. What book have you read that was out of your comfort zone? 

10) uh… The Two-Family House. I got an ARC of it (one of my first ever ARCs) and it’s historical fiction and adult so I wasn’t sure if I’d like it but I ended up really enjoying it.

After doing the Q and A I did ask her what was starfish about and it does sound like a great book which I’m planning to read please do let me know if you follow Savannah also what’s your favourite post by her.

Hate Comments !!!!

Hey Guys,

Who else loves this quote everytime I read it I just think of Edward Cullen saying those words I literally know them of by heart anyho onto the post.

So recently they bought out a new book from E.L James which is a Na (New Adult) writer Ya readers can read this post I’m not going into detail anyway the reason why I mentioned it is because of the hate comments which is understandable due to its content.

But all I’m saying is the hate comments that people write are goes to far for example people have written the author needs to burn every copy she has written and that to me is mean and I’m not talking about this particular book.

I am talking about every book you need to take the authors feelings into consideration I’m not saying I haven’t in the beginning of my blogging I did but I realise that this author is really happy to have published a book or series that has taken almost a year to write and after that whole year of hard work you write a hate comment that makes the author upset and that’s not ok I do write if I dislike a book in a nice way for example I wasn’t a big fan of looking for Alaska due to the way the guy main character acted you wrote why but in a nice way.

So please do consider the authors feelings when right a review I’m not saying to be truthful but in a nice way I hope my post has made you realise what you are doing when you write your hate comments and turn over a new leaf I saw someone who done a similar post in January I think that made me think about my actions and I knew I had to change and I hope I have convinced you the same.

Let me know in the comments below what you’re opinion on hate comments are if you agree or if you disagree.

Book update and a strange message

hey guys,

 

I had a message on my twitter private message a mother hows daughter and her read my blog ask me if I could do a post about Twilight which was the mother favourite and is her daughter didn’t want to read it because she heard its about a ‘creepy vampire’ I really shocked to hear someone say that about Edward Cullen but I continued reading the reason why she wanted me to do a dissuasion about twilight is because she wanted her daughter to realise how stupid that was and also to try to convince her to read it and I replied.

Dear Caroline

I will start reading all of the series right away so I can fully talk about it because just as you I love twilight series they were the first book I have ever read even though I haven’t read it since a year ago due to lowing my TBR after reading you message I went on to a few blog reviews and also goodreads to find out that there are a lot of hate comments and discussions about how ‘creepy, stalker, abusive and bossy’ Edward Cullen is I am very disappointed that people would say that I mean he is bossy but only to protect Bella but I do agree that a discussion is needed to straighten out what people are saying i am also planning to review the books aswell if you are interested thank you for letting me know and I hope to convince Annabel that she should give the series a chance let me know if there any posts you wish for me to do in the future.

Happy reading

Lola

Anyway she commend back thanking me for taking the time to read her message letting me know she is excited to read those posts and hopes I can convice her daughter also and she didn’t expect me to answer her which really surprised me since I read everyones message and reply as soon as I can if you guys have any ideas on what posts I can do next do let me know.

So has you know by that conversation I am planning to read the twilight series I may not be able to read any other books for a reason which I’ll be talking about in my other blog lola’s crazy life blog.

I am currently reading Edwards verison of the book which is called midnight sun but i have to say that I do prefer reading Edwards than Bella’s let me know what you think of twilight and what Team are you and what character do you dislike.

 

Happy reading

1 Year Anniversary of Book BLogging

Hey Guys,

 

So I was currently writing my post for the BookTuberAThon wrap up when WordPress sent me this:

Screenshot_2017-07-30-23-55-04-1I can’t believe it’s been a year since I have been blogging but I am really proud of how many followers I have gotten since my first post I remember posting my first August TBR  2016  looking back at it I am so shock by how much I have improved since then I am titling in bold and adding pictures back then I just wrote it without thinking about it looking good believe it or not after my first post I got three followers.

At that time when I was blogging it was just to express my love of reading and fangirling  back then I didn’t have many book readers and those I did I rarely saw due to being in college and not really talking because they were always busy so I didn’t expect to have as many followers as I do now so thank you for following me and being patient with how long it takes me to post.

 

Apologies:

 

I want to apologies to those fellow bloggers and friends for not answering and doing you books tags you have tagged me in the reason for it is because it didn’t pop up on my notifications which I know isn’t an excuse but I hope you forgive me and continue to tag me in any future book tags and also thank you for those who have if it wasn’t for you guys I wouldn’t have my 182 followers.

also I did a post on bully bookworms which I feel very strong about please do click Discussion on Bulling Bookworms and read it and follow the crusade as one of our fellow book bloggers wrote because it is a serious matter a friend of mine almost stop reading because of it also if you do follow the crusade then write a post about what you think about book bullying in generally day to day reading/blogging and link it below or tag me in the post.

Tags I have created:

 

I made my first ever tag which was  I dare you Book Tag   because I made a tag for my friend Jenny to do for fun and she suggested I put it on my blog which I thought would be fun I even answered the questions once I did them lots of bloggers did my tag and friends then 4 months ago piera forde did my I dare you | book tag which I remember being completely shocked that this tag had been on youtube but then others decided to do my tag and the only problem was no one knew how did it until one of my favourite youtubers Rianna reads did the same named tag which I discussed I Dare you |Book Tag discussion  and just reading it now I can see I wasn’t to happy about it even though I did say I was but now I am completely over it and am happy my first book tag was a success.

 

I link my other tags here:

​Beauty And The Beast / Book Tag

​Blogging advice // Tag //

also let me know if you want me to reanswer them because I would also feel free to answer them and tag me I’d love to see your answers.

 

Also I just want to say thank you to Savannah@TheBookProphet for convicing me to do my blog and for being a good friend and being my first follower I hope you check out her blog her youtube account The Book Prophet youtube channel because she is a great book blogger and tuber she deserves a lot more followers/subscribers than she has and I cant wait to see what future posts/videos she does next.

Hope you enjoyed my post let me know below why you first started blogging if you have ever experienced bookworm bullying because I have also what was your favourite post of mine I’ll be posting my BookTuberAThon and July wrap up tomorrow plus my August tbr until tomorrow.

Why I started blogging 

I just want to start by thanking all my 19 followers for liking and commenting on my blog I wasn’t expecting to even have one follower I just wanted to express my opinion on my favourite thing in the world which is reading and I did expect to have other people  (other than my friends agree with me) I remember being in secondary school reading in the cafeteria, library, outside classrooms and even once I finish my school work.

I was classed as a book addict at school loads of people would be like “oh she’s reading again surprise surprise” but I didn’t care especially in the end of my school year my friends were not hanging around with me that much I was happy to sit on my own reading.

And also to post chapters of my stories and see if people thought they were good now I know they do I’m planning write a story and publish it hopefully I’m currently working on four books what ever one I post the chapter of get liked more I’ll publish first.

I’m thing of making a blog on things in my life as well as this one I’m not 100% sure my nickname is lola/lena you can call me either instead of bookfandom1001 In posts or comments.

I’m planning to post a book update mire tags and a few more reviews during the month of September I’m planning to start reading empire of storms in October because that is when my birthday is and it would be a great book to read on my birthday especially since I love this series so much and I’m also planning to post a very late books I want to read that is due out in September.

Let me know what books you want me to review what tags and also what you want me to post on this blog.
