Problems I Encounter When I’m Making A Blog Post!

Hey guys!

Yaaas, I’m still here! ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, school just started and I can already feel the pressured surroundings and I’m so bloody tired right now.

But it will never stop me to make a blog post for this day! As what I’ve said yesterday, I am not going to have three posts a day during weekdays but I’ll only haveย oneย post in a day instead. While during the weekends I’ll have two to three blog posts per day.

I hope you’ll all understand because school just started today and we will be soon bombarded with projects, exams, and quizzes.

So, as a book blogger or even if you’re not a book blogger as long as you’re a BLOGGER we encounter some problems when we’re making a blog post right?

So today I’m going to share mine!

So without further rants, Let’s start! ๐Ÿ™‚

1.) Running out of ideas.

This my hatest problem when it comes to blogging. Especially, when I’m already facing the laptop and I stared at it dumbly because I don’t have any ideas what to post or to type.Thankfully, after a few hours of brainstorming an idea will pop in my head and it gets me excited because aside from getting in touch with my fellow book bloggers it’s good to share your ideas and opinions with other people.

2.) Crappy Internet Connection.

It pissed me off when the internet connection went crappy. It’s so hard to upload any GIF’s or photos. Lots of error occurs which ruins my plans for my post. It’s also even hard to open my blogsite sometimes. Tsk. Tsk. It’s so freaking irritating.

3.) Distractions.

giphy (2)

HA! My distractions? 1.) Television 2.) Youtube and 3.) Instagram.

Well, they are called as blissful distractions. (HAHAHA!) Anyway, the point is instead of finishing the post fastly it gets delayed or worst I don’t finish making the post at all because I already fell asleep or I let myself engrossed with those wickedly blissful distractions.

4.) Should I read or make a post at this moment?giphy (3)

The most difficult question to answer aside from Math problems. I love reading and I also love book blogging and it’s so hard to choose between them especially when I’m loving the book that I’m currently reading.

5.) Time Management.

giphy (4)

It’s kinda hard to manage your time during school days but during school breaks and summer? Easy peasy. Cause school days means studying and exerting more of your energy for school stuffs. I do want to make lots of posts last year but school drained my energy and I just fell asleep while making a post. But this year as part of my Bookish New Year’s Resolutionย I’ll be more active on my blog and I’ll manage my time wisely.

Book Characters I’d Like To Cosplay!

Hey guys!

I’ve stopped reading The 5th Wave for awhile cause I’m itching to do this blog post.

So yeah, I’ve been a cosplayer before but I already stopped because I’m now more focused with reading and blogging.

Anyway, I still want to cosplay but this time it’s going to be different because instead of cosplaying an anime character, I’m going to cosplay my favorite characters from the books I love.

Well, it’s not like I’m going to present my favorite characters on stage but a photoshoot will do. Oh! I can also film a roleplay with my bookish friends and post it here!

(Honestly, I don’t have some bookish friends in person yet.)

#SOON

So guys!

Without further ado, Let’s start!

#1: Clary Fray

of

The Mortal Instruments Series

Ohhh… so craving to cosplay Clary for a year already! I already own some of her outfit but I don’t have her boots and gloves yet. I also want to have a stele and some seraph blades to add in the kickass outfit but most of all I need to dye my hair like Clary’s hair and draw somes runes on my body so that I really do like a Shadowhunter or Clary.

#2: Hermione Granger

of

Harry Potter Series

Who wouldn’t to cosplay Hermione or just dress up like a Hogwarts student right? I’ve been wanting to have the Hogwarts uniform since I was in sixth grade. HA! and now I still don’t have it. Scratch that though, maybe I’ll have it pretty pretty soon. Can’t wait to wear that awesome coat at school. ย That would be weird for some people but I don’t care.

*wink. wink.*

#3: Katy Swartz

of

LUX Series

Yaaas! I really need the freaking shirt as soon as I can! This is the simplest outfit in this post right? Just that awesomesauce shirt, a pants, boots, and an obsidian necklace. I guess, I need to find an obsidian necklace. It’s an important accessory of Katy.

(That shirrrrrrrrrt!!!)

#4: America Singer

The Selection Series

Holy molies!

This is my most favorite gown that America Singer wore in the books. The gown is just simple but it is elegant. The rose thingy in the gown is completely attractive and other than black gowns I also love white gowns.

Man, I’d love to wear this gown in our senior’s ball soon and have a photoshoot after the ball. Mhmmm… sounds like a plan.

(Although, I was planning for a Victorian dress.)

#5: June Iparis

of

Legend Trilogy

2016-03-1--21-18-03

This outfit have some similarities with a Shadowhunter’s outfit but the difference is the military aura of the outfit. I was practically drooling when Marie Lu described June’s outfit in her books. It was so cool and I really want a military or punk outfit. I was already imagining myself with June’s outfit while reading the outfit and that’s the time I decided I’d cosplay her soon.

So that’s it for this post folks and I hope you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I might not post 3 time a day during weekdays because my class is going to resume tomorrow already. Yup, that’s right tomorrow. *cries*

Christmas break is over! I CAN’T WAIT FOR SUMMER!!!

But don’t worry folks I’ll post two or three times a day during the weekends. ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t forget to leave your thoughts down below people and I’ll see ya’ll!

Bookish Things I’d Like To Have!

Hey Guys! I’m back! ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, I have lots of bookish things I’d like to have and I wish I could have them right now, tomorrow, or next week but I still can’t because I still have lots of books to buy.

I guess I’ll have to purchase these bookish things soon as in soon.

In 5 years maybe? HAHAHA!

They’re kinda expensive you know and it is more comfortable and wise for me to spend my money for books. Yes, I do really love books.

BOOKS TODAY, BOOKS TOMORROW, BOOKS FOREVER!

#1: Fandom Shirts

I really really want to have fandom shirts especially those shirts from the LUX series and I do want to have a shirt that says “Shadowunters”.

Yep, I must have them so soon!

#2: Subscription Box

Ugggh! I really want to have a subscription box every month but good gracious it’s too expensive. A certain subscription box is equivalent to two-three books and I’d rather want to spend my money for three books. It can be a trilogy or three contemporary novels you know.

Owlcrate is based on USA while Quibblerbox is based on Philippines but Quibllerbox ships internationally! ๐Ÿ™‚

I might try a subscription box for once! ๐Ÿ˜€ (SOON!)

#3: Bookmarks

These bookmarks are so cute and I want to have them! They are so expensive on Etsy especially when I’ll pay for a shipping fee when I order them. I’m looking for these kind of bookmarks in our country and if I got to see one and if it has an affordable price then I’d totally get lots of these.

If you want to purchase or check these bookmarks then click this link:ย EtsyBookmarks

#4: Mugs

A mug from Etsy and I really want to own that kind of mug and then again it will be so expensive when I’ll buy it on Etsy. So, if I got to see one here and with affordable price then I’d certainly grab it.

Mug with a cold drink ย + Books = PERFECTION

P.S. I hate hot drinks!

That’s it for this post and I hope you have enjoyed it!

Books That I Planned To Buy On 2016!

Hey Guysssss!

Yep, more and more books to buy as what I’ve said on my Bookish New Year’s Resolution. I’ve already planned the books that I’ll buy last October and yes I like to plan ahead of time! ๐Ÿ™‚

So let’s start!!!

1.) ย The Throne of Glass Series by: Sarah J. Maas2015-10-10--13-14-15

Been raving for this series for how many months already but can’t buy the series because it’s not yet complete. Then I’ve changed my mind and my patience is already wearing out and so I’ll totally buy this series!

2.) The Lunar Chronicles by: Marissa Meyer

2015-31-12--14-29-53

Who wouldn’t want this series? Well, I’ve been raving for this series for a very long time too and since it is now complete why not freaking grab it!

3.) The Unearthly Trilogy by: Cynthia Hand

2015-31-12--14-42-33

Been planning to have this trilogy for a very long time but I haven’t got a chance to buy these books. So, I guess 2016 will be the time to buy them!

4.) The Alienated Trilogy by: Melissa Landers

2015-31-12--14-50-56

YAAAY! Another alien series!!! I really have a weak spot for alien novels and since the third book will be released this August 2016 I’ll definitely buy them!

5.) The Young Elites Trilogy by: Marie Lu

2015-10-10--13-17-26

After I’ve finished the Legend trilogy I was totally thrilled to read The Young Elites Trilogy. You see Marie Lu’s writing is superb and I know that this trilogy is superb too! The last book of the trilogy will be released on 2016 too!

6.) The Lone City Trilogy by: Amy Ewing

2015-10-10--13-18-08

Uh huh… Another raved trilogy! It’s a freaking dystopian trilogy and I also have a weak spot for dystopian novels. Gotta have the series as soon as the third book will be released on 2016.

7.) Snow Like Ashes Trilogy by: Sarah Raasch

2015-10-10--13-16-40

Well, I know that I should never judge a book by it’s cover but the cover has some kind of Throne of Glass vibe in it so I decided to have this series soon. It’s a fantasy novel and I also love fantasy novels but mostly Dystopian and Alien novels hailed but still I’ll surely have the series!

Third book will also be released this coming 2016!

8.) Hex Hall Trilogy by: Rachel Hawkins

2015-31-12--15-16-04

A paranormal fantasy trilogy and that alone is tone of the reason why I’d like to have this series. I haven’t read lots of paranormal series and so I’ll start with this series and get addicted with paranormal stuffs.

9.) Everneath Trilogy by: Brodi Ashton

2015-31-12--15-33-11

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a series that has some Greek mythology in it and I’ve missed the Greek world already and that’s why I’ll have these books!

10.) Razorland Trilogy by: Ann Aguirre

2015-31-12--15-51-44

Dystopian wolrd + Zombies = PERFECTION! I’ve never read a dystopian novel with zombies in it. Well, I kinda have but they are not called zombies and I think there are some huge differences. I’ll truly prepare myself whenever I’ll read the series. A lot of people says that this trilogy is kinda scary. *AWOOOOOOO*

11.) The Sweet Series by: Wendy Higgins

2015-31-12--16-03-19

I’ve been attracted to this series for how many months already and my desperation for this series increased especially when the first book was mentioned in the LUX series. So I’ve just decided yesterday to add the series on my list!

So that’s my plan for 2016 folks! I guess more books will be added on my plan and if so I’ll update you all about it!

I hope you enjoyed reading this postand don’t forget to tell me what are the books that you are planning to buy for 2016?

HAPPY NEW YEAR FOLKS AND SEE YA’LL LATER!

So when I’ve searched for it again I’ve realized that I’ve deleted the wrong file. Man, what a waste but I have already a new characters for my new story. KUDOS 2016!
