Spam Box Treasures: May ´20

If you thought April´s Spam Box Treasures edition was weird then there´s no telling what May´s edition is. I had a blast going through these. They´re so multifaceted.


#1 – Hey! Whatchu have against newspapers?

#2 – Dear cousin,

I always recognize such exact trouble about you.

#3 – Hackers? No. But I do have issues with Spammers. 

#4 – Va t´en  s ´il te plait.

#5 – Say what? Are you trying to get me interested in cheap soccer gear for kids?

#6 – FINALLY A SPAM COMMENT ABOUT BLOG!

#7 – * fondly remembering the days I never wrote AOL articles* 

#8 – What annoys me is that you won´t “probably be back to get more”. You´ll definitely be back, blog3006. You left me a truckload of spam comments all month. 

#9 – I can hardly help myself, blog3004.xyz! What makes you think I could help you with your blog issues?


Puuh! What an exhausting Spam Box month. Still, I hope you enjoyed ❤

Be sure to stay tuned for June´s Spam Box Treasure edition.

Have a lovely day.

Much bookish love,

10 Bookish Memes That Will Brighten Your Day

What would our small book universe be without bookish memes? Probably only half as great.

The bookish memes below are what I would classify as “It´s funny ’cause it´s true.” because… well, they hit so close to home ( don´t all book memes? ). They express moments we´ve either felt, thought, or lived through.

Alas, here are my 10 favorite bookish Memes that´ll hopefully brighten your day.

#1 That Dreadful Moment...

#2 Word.

#3 Marie, who hurt you?!

#4 Naaw, the good old days.

#5 The pain is real, folks.

#6 YES!

#7 They forgot the re-read option.

#8 Sometimes it´s the combination of reading all night and wine.

#9 I know the feeling.

#10 But ONLY just in case.


Out of all 10 memes #5 is my all time favorite.

What about you? Which of these bookish memes can you most relate to? Let me know in the comments below. I´d love to chat ❤


Thank you for reading this blog post. I hope you enjoyed.

Much bookish love,

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.

#2   What thing?!

#4   Dear John, 

Thanks for everything.

#5   Frank, you started out great but now I think you´re either drunk or confused.

That´s it for this month´s spam box treasures. I hope you enjoyed reading these as much as I did.

– 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?

And because I´m so original *snorts loud* I´m going to copy Jonny´s Questions. Don´t forget to tag me so I can see your awesome answers ❤
