Book and Fandom Related Crafts


  For those of you who don't know me, I'm a person of many hobbies. Aside from the obvious, which is reading of course, I also like to crocheting, making things with wire and writing calligraphy, which may be the reason why I'm not so good with any of them. Although I am not the best, I decided that I want to share with you guys the things that I've made or written throughout the years that are book-related. Excuse the bad photo quality, as I didn't know how to take proper photos yet last year. Without further ado, here they are! :)

Crochet

  I've been crocheting for a really long time now. If I'm not mistaken, I started in 6th grade, and that was 5 years ago, although I don't crochet often.

Wire

  This one is a recent hobby. I bought my first wire and pliers late in March this year.

 Harry Potter accessories, which I actually just made today

Calligraphy and Typography

Typography is something I do when I get bored in class and I started it a year ago. Calligraphy is just something recent, and I started it almost the same time as the wire projects, although a bit later.

Dress Up That Cover #36 - American Girl on Saturn


  Dress Up That Cover is a new feature where I create an outfit based merely on the cover, not the story nor what the characters would wear. Colors of the outfit will all be taken from the cover design, so the books may be ones that I haven't read yet. All sets will be created via Polyvore.
  This week's feature is American Girl on Saturn by Nikki Godwin! I absolutely loved this book because of all the feels! Hope you guys enjoy this one! :)


Dewey Readathon

What is Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon? For 24 hours, we read books, post to our blogs, Twitters, Tumblrs, Goodreads and MORE about our reading, and visit other readers’ homes online. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day. It happens twice a year, in April and in October.
  This is my tentative list of books from which I can choose from, but I only plan to read 2 books because I signed up as a cheerleader and I really want to be active this year. This is the perfect way to kick start my summer vacation, which coincidentally, starts today!

  If you've read any of these books and want to recommend which one I should read first, please leave a comment down below. :)

Review: Amy and Roger's Epic Detour


Title: Amy & Roger's Epic Detour
Author: Morgan Matson
Series: N/A, Standalone
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Contemporary
Publication Date: May 4th, 2010
My Rating: 4 Stars
Buy Links: Amazon || The Book Depository
  Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it's Amy's responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn't ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip - and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar - especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory - but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way.

  Amy has to drive across the country from California to Connecticut because her mom decided to do so after her father's death due to a car accident. The problem is, Amy is not driving because of the trauma after the accident. So her mom asks Amy's childhood friend Roger to drive Amy since he's going to Philadelphia anyway. The two start out as strangers, but after having a couple to detours, things change as they get to know each other more. 

  Amy and Roger's Epic Detour is a good book, but I believe that it has the potential to have been better. Mostly, the book was enjoyable, but there were certain parts wherein it felt dragging and boring, and I think that it could have done better in the feels department. Nevertheless, i still liked reading this one.

  I really loved the scrapbook style the author used in the book. There were lots of great quotes within the book. I liked how the characters slowly came into realization of how they felt towards each other until they reached the end. Amy and Roger's road trip is not merely a road trip, but it was like the journey of life.

  Amy and Roger's Epic Detour is easily the best road trip book that I have read yet, and I'm looking forward to reading more books by Morgan Matson!


“Tomorrow will be better.”
“But what if it’s not?” I asked.
“Then you say it again tomorrow. Because it might be. You never know, right? At some point, tomorrow will be better.” 

“The best discoveries always happened to the people who weren't looking for them.” 

Dress Up That Cover #35 - Endless


  Dress Up That Cover is a new feature where I create an outfit based merely on the cover, not the story nor what the characters would wear. Colors of the outfit will all be taken from the cover design, so the books may be ones that I haven't read yet. All sets will be created via Polyvore.
  This week's feature is Endless! Honestly, I have no idea what this book is about, I just featured it because I thought the cover is gorgeous! Anyway, here it is.
