Top 5 Wednesday: Books That Would Make Good Video Games

Top 5 Wednesday is a group on Goodreads that was created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and is now run by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. This week is all about books that should be make into video games! I love video games, I’m not super great or anything but I do enjoy them. Some of my favourites are Animal Crossing and Super Mario Bros.

1. And Then There Were None Agatha Christie

Okay so this is one of my favourite books- I feel like I talk about it all the time: on here, to my friends, to my coworkers but hear me out!

How it would work is- you could play through as all of the different characters trying to avoid your fate, get off the island, save as many people as you can and figure out who the murderer is, it could also work where you walk through with new characters so you don’t know who’s going to be killed off next, finally (the most morbid) is you could play as the killer- trying to successfully plan your traps and murders.

Poetry Focus Introduction

Here and there I like to pick up some poetry books, I love Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost and recently I’ve been reading Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.

I wanted to start posting reviews for any poetry books that I read however I’m not sure about the typical review system since poetry is so personal to everyone plus it’s in such a different format that it difficult to put a star rating on it.

For a Poetry Focus, I will be featuring a poetry book that I’ve read, sharing my thoughts as well as a few of my favourite poems from it! I hope you enjoy this new series, the first Poetry Focus is next Friday featuring Milk and Honey!

Until next time, Emily

NaPoWriMo 2017

You might have heard NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month (November) where the aim is to write a whole novel in 1 month! I’ll admit I’ve been tempted to try it but right now it seems very daunting. However I was looking around and found NaPoWriMo or National Poetry Writing Month where you write 1 poem each day for the month of April based on a prompt which you can find here. If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at poetry, what better time than now? This is my first year trying it- so far so good, it’s only been 2 days but at least I’m not behind yet!

Until next time, Emily

Top 5 Wednesday: Science Fiction & Fantasy Books I Want To Read

Top 5 Wednesday is a group on Goodreads that was created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and is now run by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. This week is 5 Science Fiction and Fantasy Books I’ve Read however,I haven’t read too many books in this category so I thought I’d change it up a bit. Instead of doing the books I’ve read I’ll be doing the books I want to read!

 

  1. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Douglas Adamsa1hgwca36hl
    This book is referenced so often and I feel as if it’s one of those books everyone has to read eventually, just to say they read it. I think there was even a movie for this?
