Long time no see. I haven’t written on my blog for some time now and I do feel bad. I have been super busy though. If I havent mentioned it before, I am doing a Graphic Design Diploma which runs for 11 months and just because it’s a 3 year degree cramped into 11 months, its very hectic. But I’m having fun. I wont say I haven’t had time at all because I did but I just didn’t feel like blogging anymore.
But here I am – refreshed and ready to blog again. I have read some really good books meanwhile and it’s a pity that I didn’t do a review or something for them and now I feel it’s too late to remember the details even. I do have 4-5 review copies which have been on my shelf for a couple of months now. I should stop ignoring them and get to them soon enough. I accepted them because they seemed interesting and something I wanted to read, so I have no excuse to not read them. I just received this book called ‘Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar children‘ for review. I didn’t want to accept any new books until I started reading the ones I already had but I couldnt resist this one since it’s already been on my Wishlist and I really wanted to read it.
Anyway, for non-bookish randomness, I just bought Samsung Note. If you havent seen it before it’s this big brick of a Cell phone which seems way too big when you first use it but then after using it for a couple of days the iphone seems like a toy. I’m loving it so far.
The wordpress interface has changed so much. I’m not sure I like the new look.
I am really really really missing home. I wish I could drop everything and visit for a few days. I will probably try and go sometime during the break in August or something.
We watched Snowwhite and the Hunstmen and I found it really boring, My husband fell asleep during the second half. The effects and all were amazing but the movie just wasnt that captivating. I wish they had taken someone else instead of Bella (Sorry dont remember her real name) as I think she did not suit the character well. Someone like Amanda Seyfried would have done more justice to the role.
I havent bought new books for sometime now…oh except Insurgent…I did buy a few YA books for my younger sister but thats all.
Oh I’m on Instagram now but it’s under my real name so cant put it here. But if you’re on Instagram as well let me know so I can follow you. We can then get to know each other in the real world as well 🙂
Back to bookish things – I am reading The Pagan Stone at the moment which is the third book in the Hollow series. I enjoyed the first 2 books but this one is really difficult to get into because it seems kind of repetitive. Anyway, I might abandon it and start Miss Peregrine’s…not sure what to do yet.
I haven’t been on Google reader for like forever but I need to see if there is an app for Google Reader on my phone which will really be helpful in catching up. I don’t mark read-all I just read the latest couple of posts from each blogger and then mark read-all.
Anyway, I am hoping to post atleast once a week if not regularly here. Tell me how have you guys been?
It’s nice to see you back! I’m on Instagram, but I rarely use it.
It’s good to hear from you, Violet! It sounds like life is keeping you pretty busy. Good luck with your course and everything! Miss Pettigrew’s Home for Peculiar Children has been on my wishlist for ages – I wouldn’t be able to say no either.
Good job getting another degree–that’s great! I am on instagram as heidenkind. 🙂

Hey Violet, it’s good to hear from you again! I’m glad to see that what has been keeping you busy seem to be positive things. Your degree sounds like a lot of worth but it’s great to hear you are having fun despite the hectic schedule.
I’m on instagram as lifeisapoem. 🙂

Hello, welcome back! Best of luck with your course, and well done for having not bought any books for a while, I think in our book blogging world that is a brilliant achievement!
i would agree but i dont think my control is going to last for long…my hands have started itching 🙂
Welcome back! Good luck with school!
Welcome back, Violet! I’m back to blogging lately too, as you know I had quit my job and stay at home, for now. 🙂 All the best with your course!!
