Bookish traveling-London

Hello guys! I visited London this weekend (which was absolutely amazing by the way) and as the true booknerd I´m, I obviously made some bookish sightseeing. So i thought it would be fun to make a blog post about them. I choose to only include bookish stuff in this blog post since this is a book blog. So without further ado, let´s get started!

Writing

Earlier today I posted a picture at my bookstagram account (@thelittlebooknerdy) where I talked about writing but I felt like I wanted to talk more about it I decided to write a blogpost about it as well.

I´ve loved writing as long as I´ve known how to do it and over the years I´ve written short stories, poems, novels, fanfictions and fantasy books. I love to create stories and to write them down, to connect with people using words of ink on paper. But I easily loose inspiration for my stories after a while and I´m almost never able to finish my longer stories so how do you find the inspiration? What do you do when you really want to write but don´t have any ideas? I find my inspiration for writing in many different ways, mostly by reading books, by reading other peoples stories. But also in many other ways, so I made a list of the best ones.

  • Taking long baths and just think of what i want to write.
  • Look at pictures on pinterest, it honestly helps A LOT.
  • To write in a different place. Leave your home, go to a cafe or to the forest or a library and sit down and just write.
  • Write anyway, ignore if it dosen´t turn out good, you can always change it later!
  • Talk about other people about what you´re writing, maybe it feels a little bit scary but it helps a lot and makes you much more excited to continue writing!

I hope this post helped you and made you more excited about writing!

Books that made me cry

Books that made me cry

One of the things I love the most about reading is that it makes us feel things. They makes us happy and sad, they makes us laugh and cry. And isn´t it just a proof that the book is well written if it makes you feel things? So today I´m going to talk about some of the books that have made me cry.

Harry Potter- Well, I cried a lot while reading these books. Both of happiness and sadness, specially while reading the last four books in the series.Goodreads synopsis

All the Bright Places– THIS BOOK BROKE MY HEART! I cried rivers of tears when reading it and I still become a little bit sad every time I think of the book. Goodreads synopsis

The Book Thief- This possibly the book that have made me cry the most of all the books that I´ve ever read. Mostly because it was so sad, but it also made me cry of happiness. Goodreads synopsis

A Torch Against the Night- This book made me cry a lot, and not of happiness. It was heartbreaking. But I loved it, and I can´t wait for the next book in the series to come out so I can cry a little more over my beloved characters. Goodreads synopsis  My book review of it

#bookwormproblems

Hello guys, today I want to talk to you about bookworm problems. It’s amazing to be a bookworm, but being a bookworm also comes with some problems and I’ve made a list of the most problematic ones. 
1. When your bookshelf gets too small. It happens to all of us sometimes. The books are so many and the bookshelf is so small. There’s no place left! And no, you can’t just throw some of them away, that would be like killing someone!

2. Waiting in months for a book to be released. Why can’t it just be released the day I want it to?! I can’t wait for three more months!

3. Starting to cry in public because your favorite character just died. And everyone starts to stare at you as if you was insane…

4. When you want to by a new book so bad. And your heart says yes but your wallet says no.

5. “Do you like reading? So you don’t have any friends or a social life?” Of course I’ve friends! Fictional ones…

The Secret History

It´s Friday, which means a new blog post so here´s a review of an amazing book that I finished earlier this week.

Title: The Secret History

Author: Donna Tartt

Synopsis:

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality they slip gradually from obsession to corruption and betrayal, and at last – inexorably – into evil.

This is a book that shows the humans true nature, the evil that can become of people and how our decisions changes us. It´s about beauty and destruction.

Review:

This is the first Donna Tartt book that I´ve ever read but I fell in love with her writing already at the first few pages.

Sure, it was a little bit slow sometimes and I can understand why some people think that the plot is boring but I personally loved it!

Donna Tartts writing style is beautiful, mysterious and kind of elegant even. She makes you feel like you where there with the characters, watching them and knowing them. She made me believe in everything she wrote.

So, I loved her writing but more did I loved about this book? One of the other things that I loved was the characers, they were complex, real and interesting. In many reviews of this book that I´ve read the people who don´t like the book that they don´t like the charcters because they are selfish and snobby. But that´s the point; the main characters aren´t MEANT to be any perfect heroes in this book and I love it. They all also developed and changed throught the book, the characters you met in the beginning of the book was not exactly the same as the ones that you said goodbye to in the end of it.

The book also told us how different events can change a person which I found really interesting to read about.

You never new what was going to happen next, Donna Tartt never stopped surprising you, which is worth a star by itself.

I often read many fantasy books or just ya-books in general which are all very simillar to each other, but The Secret History isn´t simillar to anything that I´ve ever read before and i love Donna Tartt for that

This book was beautiful, and terrifying and I truly loved it.

Stars: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Have any of you read this book?
