This is THE WORST Reading Slump of My Life | SEND HELP

BEFORE THIS POST BEGINS, I’d just like to say THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH FOR 50 FOLLOWERS! I got the notification last week and totally forgot to post about it! I can’t believe there are actually 50 (56, now) of you that actually think my ramblings are somewhat interesting. Thank you, thank you, thank you. A special thanks to Kat from Life and Other Disasters for being my 50th AND to Yarravy from Hiraeth For The Pages for featuring me on her blog, which definitely added a few followers to my tally!

Now onto the slump in question.

10 Books in 10 Words | Harry Potter Edition

I was in the process of writing a sequel to my 10 Books in 10 Words post when I thought, “Hey, you know what would be cool?? 10 Books in 10 Words, but with the Harry Potter books!” And you know what? That would be cool, so here it is.

The Goodreads Struggle: Published 2017 | I Have a GIF Problem

We’ve all been there. You’re browsing through your Goodreads, maybe rating a book you just finished, and you scroll down to the bottom (for mobile users) or glance to the right (for non-mobile users). You guessed it, I’m talking about that enticing little heading titled Readers Also Enjoyed. You think to yourself, “Eh, what the hey? That huge English paper isn’t due ’til tomorrow, so I’ve got plenty of time to procrastinate!”

You click on a cover that looks mildly interesting, let’s call it Book A, and you read the blurb. Then you’re like “Hmm that sounds like a delicious plot right there, maybe I should get Book A right-” and then you see it. Published [insert month] 2017. Twenty-who-now?!?!

10 Books in 10 Words

Are you ever wondering if you should by a book and thinking, “Man, I think I’d like this book, but maybe I’d like it more if Jordyn gave me a ten word recommendation/review on it”? Of course you have, Imaginary Reader Inside My Head! Say no more!

I picked some random books off my shelf that I’ve read, and tried to write what I thought about them in ten words, nothing more, and nothing less. The stuff that really stood out for me once I’d finished it. As for spoilers, hmmm, a couple of them are a little spoilery, most are just silly, so I guess my advice is read at your own risk? 10 books, 10 words. Let the travesty begin.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Disappointing Movie Adaptations | Lots of Raging

As soon as I finished the book, I rushed to go see the movie. Time to analyze what was good, what was bad, and who was good looking (spoiler alert, it’s Asa Butterfield :)).

Fair warning: this post is going to contain a lot of ranting, and a whole lot of spoilers, for both the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children book and the movie.

September-ish Mini-ish Reviews

So… 16 days since my last post. I’m… ugh. I’m really sorry, guys. I miss books! And blogging! And bookstagram! I need to pull myself together! So, with Hurricane Matthew making it’s way through Florida, I get a day off from school, and some time to blog!
