Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts

Posted 5 July, 2017 by Lianne in Miscellaneous / 4 Comments

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things they’ve encountered during the week, etc.).

  1. Rejoice! I finally organised my photos from my trip to Iceland and Denmark and will be posting them up here later this month πŸ˜€ Only took me how many months to get around to that (oops) :3

  2. I caved and subscribed to the June box for the Panduh Paper box again. There’s just so much pretty in it! Photos from that box to be posted later this month too πŸ˜‰
  3. Why do I have this sinking feeling that I lost a few posts when I migrated over to this new server? I was typing my review for John Wick: Chapter 2 (to go live in August) and I swear I had written up a review for the first movie but I can’t find it anywhere either on WordPress or on PHPMyAdmin O_o Ugh.
  4. The month of June overall was all right. I’m starting to note a trend at work where my start of the week is usually mid to late in the wee until Sunday, lol. Which I don’t mind; it’s just funny that whilst people are like “Fri-YAY!” it’s the start of the work week for me πŸ˜› Speaking of which, whilst everyone was out enjoying their Canada Day long weekend, I was at work -_-;
  5. As a result of working last weekend I missed seeing the giant rubber duck πŸ™
  6. I know they need to keep it free somehow but the ads peppered throughout my feed on Instagram is a bit annoying; I’m constantly like “Wait, I didn’t add you” O_o Though the whole photos not in chronological order will irritate me to no end…
  7. I mentioned it before but I’m quite the notebook hoarder. I’m making an effort to use them–on the plus side I’m all set for the school year in September–but then I have my passport Midori traveller’s notebook that I haven’t used at all. I guess it’s going to by my notes of all sorts notebook but I still haven’t actually started using it yet. On the plus side I finally clipped my Dalek charm on it πŸ˜€
  8. I’ve been a little scattered in terms of my reading as of late but here’s what I’m reading at the moment: finally started reading Joseph Boyden’s The Orenda, Robert Rotenberg’s Stray Bullets (was reading all Canadian during Canada Day weekend with the first two books :P), and Miguel Hernandez’s poems (which I love so very much) πŸ™‚
  9. I didn’t jinx myself per se but I was actually doing quite well for a while there when it came to book purchasing (probably because all my money went to stationery and buying a number of different fountain pens) but then voila! Bought like 10 books recently xD I blame the Book Depository sending that coupon earlier in June…it started from there πŸ˜› But anyway I’m looking forward to the books arriving…a bit of poetry and finishing up my Simon van Booy collection πŸ™‚
  10. My poetry project stalled for a bit in the latter weeks of June as I was waiting to hear back regarding applying for an ISBN (fun fact: here in Canada you can apply for one for free). It came through last week so I uploaded the draft and now I’m just waiting for the proof copy to arrive in the mail–eep! =O In the meantime, I’ve slowly starting planning for my next poetry project collection, this time combining a bit of photography in the collection as it’ll feature some stuff I wrote whilst I was on holiday πŸ™‚

And that’s it from me for now! How’s everyone’s week been going? πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much! I just announced my debut poetry collection today…pretty exciting/terrifying/crazy-that-it’s-out-there xD

      Wow that your daughter was in Sweden and the Czech Republic! I’d love to go to both countries someday (my two hours in Sweden doesn’t entirely count, lol). That’s really cool πŸ™‚

  1. Instagram not showing things in chronological order anymore is so very incredibly annoying. Wwwhhhhyyyyy???

    That rubber duck looks amazing – sorry you missed it!
