Spam Box Treasures: Part 8

You know, I find spam comments really hilarious. They just make my day, week, month, year. As of late, my spam comments have become more interesting. Some are starting to make sense.

 

 

We´re not talking about the majority of my spam comments, though. I still have a good amount of weird things in my comment box. Wanna see?

 

 


 

#1   I need a p.c. to power the message house.

– List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your post/or on your blog

 

#1   What was the last book you strongly disliked?

Oooh, that would be `You` by Caroline Kepnes. It was one of those books I completely forgot I bought but then spotted it again, got excited, had high hopes, then ended up being so disappointed that I had to call my mom.

 

You

 

 

#2   How does your star rating system work for your reviews (if you use one)?

I use a 5-star rating system for my reviews that´s hopefully easy to understand.

5 stars: The best book existing.

4 stars: T´was great.

3 stars: Could´ve been better / Could´ve been worse.

2 stars: Nope.

1 star:  Nope nope nope nope.

 

#3   What are your favorite pizza toppings?

I´d say pizza with extra cheese and sausage. Or pizza with prosciutto and thick chunks of shaved parmesan. I would actually kill for a pizza right now.

 

#4  Would you rather read a great plot with mediocre characters, or a boring plot with amazing characters?

Since I would end up giving either a lower rating I´d say neither.

 

#5   How many books are you currently reading, and which one is your favorite so far?

I can´t read more than one book at a time. I get confused really quick.

 

#6   What was the last book review you posted?

The last review I posted was for Book Review: How The States Got Their Shapes – Mark Stein

How the states got their shape

 

Not necessarily a genre I typically review but.. a book is a book, right? And this one was worth writing a review for.

 

#7   Do you prefer MG, YA, NA, or adult books?

YA, NA, and adult books have ( more or less ) always been my go-to genres. Nowadays I´m not really feeling any YA love so I´ll go with NA and adult books.

 

#8   Is there a popular author you’re NOT interested in reading anything by? (Elaborate if you’re comfortable doing so!)

I´m going to team up with Jonny on this one. J.K. Rowling. I have yet to read one of her books. I just can´t be bothered. The world she created is probably great but it doesn´t interest me… like, at all. I did try to watch the movies, though. Paid good money to fall asleep 3 times in a row at the movie theater.

And Cassandra Claire. Although, I think she´d fall into the “popular author I´m not interested in reading anything anymore” category.

 

#9   What marginalized rep would you most strongly like to see more of in books?

Again- I´m with Jonny. I´d really love to see more LGBT characters in books.

 

#10  Do you listen to music while reading?

Aaaaaaah! No. * hides face * I suck at multitasking. I can do one or the other but never both. But when I take blog breaks I tend to listen to music. Does that count?

 

#11  Do you prefer book twitter or bookstagram?

 

Bookstagram + Me

=

 

 

Twitter + Me

=

 

I´ll go with Twitter. Lol.

 

That´s about it, my dear bookish Padawans. I hope I didn´t bore you too much.

I Nominate:

Everyone. I´m terrible at nominating anyone in particular. Besides- Doesn´t everyone deserve a Sunshine Blogger Award?

Inside and Out Book Tag

First seen on The Tattooed Book Geek and minutes later again over at Book Reviews / Jack´s Bedtime Reading. Both haven´t tagged anyone specifically but have instead invited anyone who would like to join in on the tag-fun.

Here we are. I decided to add my two cents into the tag-mix.


 

1. Inside flap/Back of the book summaries: Too much info? Or not enough?

Inside flap? The books I buy never have them. It´s book summaries on the back for me. Some have info overload and some lack info.

 

 

2. New book: What form do you want it in? Be honest: Audiobook, E-Book, Paperback, or Hardcover?

Preferably paperback. Hardcover for my bookshelves because they look neat and clean and pretty. I´m generally against E-books and Audiobooks… I tried listening to an Audiobook while driving… and while ironing clothes. I almost drove over a red light and I burnt a hole in my jeans. Audiobooks are a no for me.

 

 

3. Scribble while you read? Do you like to write in your books, take notes, make comments, or do you keep your books clean clean clean?

I´m a little anal when it comes to my books. They need to be in pristine condition at all times. Me writing in them would give me chest pain. So, I´m going for keeping things squeaky clean.

 

 

4. Does it matter to you whether the author is male or female when you’re deciding on a book? What if you’re unsure of the author’s gender?

 

First reaction after reading the questions.

 

Second reaction.

 

Third reaction

 

 

5. Ever read ahead? or have you ever read the last page way before you got there?

I´m so guilty of doing this. Yes, I read ahead, but only if I can´t handle the suspense. I´m that unholy person who sometimes reads the last chapter first. I love spoilers so doing this doesn´t bother me in the slightest.

 

 

6. Organized bookshelves, or Outrageous bookshelves?

Define the word `organized`. If you mean keeping my books on my bookshelves then- No.

 

 

7. Have you ever bought a book based on the cover (alone)?

Yes.

 

8. Take it outside to read, or stay in?

Right at this moment, I´m having a head visual of a football team chanting “Take it out! Take it out!”. * sigh * I prefer to stay in and read. Although, I wouldn´t mind reading outside if it weren´t for my self inviting and Queen of asking 1000 Q´s mother-in-law.

 


 

That´s about it, dear bookish Padawans. I hope you enjoyed. I´m going to join Drew and Jake with their non-tagging philosophy and will not tag anyone in particular. Should you feel inspired to “tag” along then feel free to join in on the fun. Make sure to tag me so I can see what you have in store.

 

Sending out lots of love,

Thank The Books It´s Friday

Hello everyone!

 

Welcome back to another wonderful Friday. I hope your week wasn´t as tiring as mine was. If it was then do not fear, I´m here ( that rhymes! ). All ready to share my most apocalyptic bookish find for the week. But first- I need to see Frank, the squirrel.

 

squirrel fuck

 

I´m sure I gave him a different name before. But since I can´t remember it I gave him a new one. This is Frank. Frank looks just as relieved as I feel about Friday.

With that out of the way I think I should start with my most exciting bookish experience I went through this week. It all happened on Tuesday…

I was shopping for school supplies when I decided to do a quick pit stop at the bookstore. Well, needless to say: I aimed straight for the English book section, knowing that new releases would be on the shelves, etc.

And to my horror, the whole section looked like it had been attacked!

Books were lying everywhere except on the shelves. Such bookish chaos. I felt a strong urge to place every book neatly back where they belonged. To top it all off I noticed the usual books were missing. WHERE THE HELL WERE MY BELOVED BOOKS?!

After my mini panic attack, I noticed this.

bookstore notice

 

They even included a self-drawn map of the new location! I´m not only shook I´m deceased. Done. Finished. I can´t.

Yes, I WAS looking for my favorite books.

Yes, I WAS they were gone. Judging by the book abuse I figured someone went mental.

So THAT`S WHY the craft supplies were gone? I honestly wondered why they practically disappeared overnight. I was wondering about that.

( Fun fact: The bookstore had an awesome craft supply corner. Expensive as hell but still fabulous )

And then the “Here´s a fancy map.”  OMG. I was close to tears from laughing so hard.

 

So, my favorite book corner moved. Nearly gave me a heart attack but thanks to the notice and fancy map I was able to make it home alive. After that, I needed a drink and a nap ( not necessarily in that order ).

 

So, there ya have it. That was this week´s most exciting bookish experience I had.

This goes to show that the little things in life can make a major impact. ❤ I love my go-to bookstore.

All my love goes out to Thalia in Darmstadt. You guys are the best!

 


Tell me about your week? What did you read? What books did you buy? What are your plans for the weekend? Let me know in the comments below. I´d love to chat. ❤

 

Have a wonderful weekend, my dear bookish Padawans.

Feel hugged.
