Summer Reading Photo Prompt

I like the idea of reading prompts. I like the idea of writing prompts as well. Sometimes creativity or inspiration is hard to get a firm grasp on, so knowing that there are prompts, challenges, and other interesting inspirations of the like can be really relieving.

So here is a summer reading photo prompt, Page Wizards Book Club, is reading Wink Poppy Midnight for August’s book of the month, and it builds such a vivid picture with its imagery. Three things that come to mind when I consider this story, is the forest, strawberries, and the cemetery. So find yourself some beautiful outdoor locations, some haunting graveyards, and some sweet summer strawberries for this trio of a photo prompt for Wink Poppy Midnight.

Online Bookclub

This July marks one year since Page Wizards Book Club went live on the Goodreads platform! 

With a passion for reading and an interest in imagining impossible and magical scenarios, books are something that the Page Wizards can come together to discuss.

Once a month our reading theme changes, our members vote on four books that are chosen at random by the book clubs two moderators, and the winner is the book of the month! Sundays at 10am we meet up on the Goodreads platform for book club discussion. 

We’ve read through some decent books, and some hard to get into books in the last year, but there is something so satisfying about finding a DNF (Did Not Finish) that you are mutually discovering with other like minded book lovers. Another exciting aspect of bookclub, is the reading limit for the week. If we are to read the first 100 pages, but its a gem of a book that you cant put down, and you surpass the page count for the week, you are now obliged to keep spoilers out of that weeks meetings. Its really something to be ahead of the required reading pages and to see how everyone is predicting the following events that you are already privy to. 

 

If you’re interested in joining our bookclub information can be found at both the bookclubs Instagram and Goodreads!

Do it all on time (for students)

If there is one thing I wish I had more of, its time. See my previous post on this topic, Ticktock! for a decent example of just how easy it is to get pulled under by too much to do.

For now however, take a seat, and take notes. I have a fairly decent time management method that I use to keep myself on track during full time college courses!

My Best Friends Exorcism Review

I finished reading My Best Friends Exorcism last week, and honestly, I was a little let down…

Spoiler free review:

This book is full of amazing descriptive accounts of 80’s referenced gore, but there were bits of abandoned plot that I was genuinely interested in following up with, and the end… well… it ended, but I was left so unsatisfied that I’m not sure this did anything good for my reading rut!

All of that being said, I’m glad I read this book, because I certainly needed an 80’s exorcism in my life cram packed with oozing detail, aesthetically pleasing all around, but if plot is a big deal for you, then don’t read this book with high hopes of a decent story line. STILL WORTH THE READ!!

For a more in depth opinion of this book, with spoilers, please continue reading below:
