Anonymoushey! have you heard about big bad wolf? the book feast?
I was so confused by this question when I first got it! No, I had no idea. The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is a huge book sale that takes place from December 6 - 15 and apparently there are 3 million books discounted. I think it’s international. I’m pretty sure. Don’t quote me on that just yet.
AnonymousThis is random, but do you have an Instagram?
I do. My handle is @girlandherbooks. Though I don’t post just pictures of books.
AnonymousTell me about you schooling. What are you currently taking and what are you doing after?
I’m a senior in college and I’m studying Art History, English Literature, and History (general). I’m basically drowning in course work. After college, well…I…don’t know. Right now, I’ll probably just get a temp job until I pass my exams to teach. It’d be absolutely perfect if I could a job in publishing though.
AnonymousCan I be your friend? I'd like to be your friend.
That’s really sweet. Yes, we can be friends. Though, I’d like to know my friends Tumblr URL.
AnonymousWhy don't you have pictures of yourself on your blog?
I don’t know, Anon. I just don’t any more. If you’re super curious, then I look like this:
AnonymousDo you have a personal blog?
I certainly do. However, it’s on a queue until I finish this semester up in December.
skyruna said: Oh yeah! What is divergent? I see it everywhere!
Divergent is the first in a trilogy by Veronica Roth. It is set in a dystopian future where society is divided into five factions. On a specific day, the sixteen year olds are given a test to see what faction they belong to. Enter Beatrice Prior who feels like she doesn’t fit into one specific faction. I have yet to read Divergent, though I do own it. You can see a review of it by Stacey (prettybooks) here. You’re probably seeing it everywhere because the last book in the series, Allegiant, just recently came out. I know my Twitter feed is all a flutter about it.
I don’t have one favorite. That’s impossible. I have several books that I will always adore: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Towards Zero by Agatha Christie, Waiting on the Barbarians by J. M. Coetzee, Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway, The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, Uglies by Scott Westerfield, & The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
AnonymousHi. Do you know any bloggers who's in giveaways that is open internationally?
Unfortunately, I’m not aware of any international giveaways at the moment. I’d check out Goodreads and the Tumblr tag. If any of you guys know of on going international giveaways, then feel free to comment.
I feel like three is really limiting my need to read all the books.
That was the most I’ve read for Bout of Books. Yes, I did enjoy it. I stayed up late and finished it crying. I’ll definitely be reviewing it.
It is definitely a challenging book. I only read it, because I took a course on it. If you’re thinking about getting it, then I’d definitely recommend getting Ulysses Annotated by Don Gifford. It was a huge help!
Hi, Cal! I’d definitely say Three Weeks in December by Audrey Schulman, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (it doesn’t come out until September unfortunately, but definitely pick it up when it does), and Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon.
Anonymoushey there! i just wanna ask, where did you buy the totes? its very awesome. i like to have them. hope you will help me out :)
I got the “When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.” from Barnes and Nobles. I think that someone actually gave it to me as a gift. I bought the “Word counts are so obsessive” from Nouvella.
It’s really not my idea. I saw another book blogger on Tumblr do it first. I also have a list on Goodreads and a list on my phone. It’s nice to randomize the book reading process a bit.
