What’s the best way to get out of a blogging slump? Why, a book tag, of course!
The College Freshman Book Tag was created by Dawlyn and Krista @ Little Blind Book Finds. I discovered it earlier this summer through Vrinda @ A Bookish Human.
I’m no freshman – on the contrary, I’m in my final year – but this tag suits this period. I wanted to post it a couple of weeks ago to coincide with the start of the academic year, but hey, I’m still in time, right? (Freshmen in Malta started this week, in fact!)
I’m not tagging anyone. If you’re going to do it, let me know so I can read your post. 🙂
Hello, dear readers. Hope you had a great start to October. 😊
Yeah, I’m still alive and kicking despite the silence. I went mute for longer than I had wanted to, but I wasn’t going to skip my journal post. It’s not just my studies and the start of the academic year that kept me away, there were other things too.
Take a look at my life pills to know what, and read more about what happened during September.
Goodbye August. You’ve been bittersweet, as always.
And hello, September! In 22 days I’ll be back to lectures and, honestly, I’m looking forward to it right now. That’s how much I hate summer, I guess. I feel that by going back to the academic routine, I will recover my energy.
So bring it on!
On my birthday, the only thing I felt like doing was to chillax in front of the TV with Matt. So I thought of choosing something completely new to watch, some genre that I’ve been longing to try out, i.e. period dramas.
My first choice fell on The Crown, a Netflix biopic drama. Yes, because what’s better than a period drama, if not a biographical period drama! Created by Peter Morgan – known for writing biopics such as The Queen, Frost/Nixon, and Rush – this series is about Queen Elizabeth II.
After My Grandmother Sends Her Regards & Apologises, the next Fredrik Backman novel in my possession was Britt-Marie Was Here.
It’s a spin-off centred around one of the secondary characters in My Grandmother. If you haven’t read the previous book, don’t worry: Britt-Marie can still be read as a standalone because it is unrelated to Elsa’s adventure and it retells the main character’s backstory from scratch. Readers who have read My Grandmother, on the other hand, will learn more details about Britt-Marie’s past and discover a new side of this woman, who had previously seemed too annoying to bear.
