(baby lion rawr) I am so tired. So today I’m talking about books. I’ve become obsessed. I’ve gone from being somebody that cannot read to being obsessed with reading. Right now I am reading four books on the go. (stutters) Woah. I don’t know how I am doing this and there was a moment earlier when I had to stop myself from reading a fifth book. I had to say to myself “No!” “Control yourself! Finish what you’ve already started.” So what am I reading, what am I getting obsessed with? Well yesterday I started ‘Room’ (Emma Donoghue) I am 150 pages in, and I love it. As soon as I finish this I am going to review this in depth. A video is on the way. It is so good this, promise me you’ll read this. Promise? Book No. 2, I actually started this afternoon. ‘The Infinite Sea’, which is the sequel to ‘The 5th Wave’ (Rick Yancey) I must admit, I am 40 pages in and I’m struggling a little bit. I’m just hoping that it’s just because I am so preoccupied with so much stuff right now, that it’s distracting me from the awesomeness of this. I am going to continue reading this, I want to know what happens. Especially after I saw the first film today! The film is a good adaptation of the book the first half made me SO nervous. It’s one of those films that has such a punchy, awesome beginning. There was a little bit too much romance. There was a few things I wasn’t too happy with, but overall, it was good. And the music and sound design was perfect. There is nothing like good sound design. Don’t underestimate it. Anyway, going back to the book! Once I finish the other books, I am going to start this from the beginning again and hopefully I will take it in a bit better. But I am excited to have this in my hands. Thank you Penguin! Okay the next book doesn’t really count but the lady at Penguin gave this to me today so I should mention it. It’s a Doctor Who colouring book! (gasps) This is so exciting. Honestly. Colouring books are all the faze? crave? rave? Rave. Colouring books are all the rave right now, so to have a Doctor Who one is just, wow. I’m a little bit nervous because there are angels on the inside cover as well as throughout the book so “Ah!”, I’m in trouble. My Dad and I were looking at this earlier and it’s fantastic. Pun. (snickers) But I’m going off topic, back to the books that I’m reading. OK, so time to get ranty. Let’s get on to audiobooks. So I am currently listening to ‘Allegiant’ (Veronica Roth) and I’m having a really hard time. Argh, I’m just so frustrated. It’s annoying when you get attached to a book series or a set of characters and then it goes on a completely different direction to what you expected, and you just find yourself going “Nooooo!” There was a point yesterday where I said “Enough is enough, I am taking a break.” Because it’s an audiobook, I can’t grab hold of it but had I had the book in my hands, I would have thrown it out the window. I’m exaggerating a little bit, but that just illustrates how angry I am. I’ve got about 4 hours left on the audiobook, I just need to take a break and process what I’ve heard so far. And just, prepare myself for what’s coming next. Everyone is telling me that it’s about to get really sad so I need to get some tissues. Argh, ‘Allegiant’. Argh. Okay, the very last book is ‘The Martian’ (by Andy Weir) And I’ve decided to listen to the audiobook as opposed to buying it on my Kindle and I think that was the best decision I could have made. The audiobook is incredible. It’s like listening to the film, but in slow motion. It’s good. It is so good. It just makes me laugh, out loud and laughing out loud for me is so rare. I’m one of those people where, even if I find something funny I don’t necessarily show that I find it funny. I just sit and look neutral. I laugh internally. Maybe it’s the author, maybe it’s the performer, maybe it’s the character itself, ( maybe its Maybelline 🙂 I don’t know what it is just yet. but it is making me so happy. I’ve got about 2 hours left of the audiobook, I am so close. I’m so excited. Whew. Gosh, you can tell I’m getting vamped up about books. This is good. I haven’t been this passionate about books for a long time. I’m just trying to think of other books that I’ve recently read. I read ‘The Book Thief (Markus Zusak) Argh! That made me cry! So yeah, that’s where I am with books. I think we can safely say that I’m back to reading books. Before I go, I do have a ‘Goodreads’ account. So, if you want to follow me there, then the link is in the description box as well. As you can imagine, with 4 books on the go, I’m updating like crazy. Argh, my head hurts. So many books. (fake cries) Okay, so Mr. Polar Bear and I are now going to disappear to the planet Mars to finish ‘The Martian’. And, we shall see you again another time.
