Just reading | by pewdiepie

Here’s someone with a full time job that requires more work than a lot of people think. Here’s someone who found means and time to travel, see sights, appreciate things. And also someone who read 72 books in 2018, and I am honestly happy and impressed. Impressed not because I didn’t even expect someone this busy to read that much, and it is much, yes, but also impressed by what was read, and how he motivates people who watch him to do the same: 10 pages a day everyday is better than 300 pages and a full stop.

One step at a time.

Wish you best of luck with your reading in 2019, everyone!

Bookish: Birthday

1

This year the birthday went well. I think the curse is officially lifted, for meteor didn’t fall on my head, all the presents and wishes were very thoughtful, and I got enough tea to last me a month. Two if you don’t drink buckets the way I do.

I love this picture because: see the candy down there? I bought a few packs to use as package fillers for some people. And none was left for me. It was nice to receive one from someone else thus! (I really like this kind, just letting you know)

Bookish | Halloween

PicsArt_08-13-05.35.09

I don’t know about you, but this cooling down of the summer gave me mad Halloween vibes straight away. I mean, for real, give me skelly decorations, serious vampire books (not the stuff I flood my blog with right now), horror movies, all the things!

Bookish | I have a problem…

3

New school year is about to start (condolences to all of you who are still affected by that date). Meaning every store ever has school supplies ready. And each one has different stuff. So I spent like 20 minutes circling this one table, because ooh, look at that one. And this one is just one misc among them, meaning there’s probably a pack somewhere, with varied versions of this precise one…

I also got a few pens, the ones that cost half a buck and write for about a week. But they’re really good to have on work desk, especially if you need to scan something in the most sharp possible outline ever.

[Promo]: P.S. I Love That Book on YouTube

BookTube is a fairly new thing for me, but little by little the subscription box is getting fuller. One of the first ones I ever subbed to was P.S. I Love That Book. It was pretty new back when I got there, I think I saw the first video as it came out, or maybe the second one… Anyway, it’s just nice to see how everything got so much better, and turned so perfected!

Hannah tells us of all kinds of books, even thou it all started with YA and fantasy. Now anyone can get recommendations there, and best of all – not just for things that would’ve ended up in your alley anyway. No, she picks up books some of us would never get to read if this didn’t happen, either due to it being too obscure, not a popular topic, or just in general a tad overseen book. Thanks to her I’ve read Shades of Magic, and they’re my very favorite now!

Any of you got a booktube? Or even just vlogs, or gaming channels?

Promo: Great Gatsby

If you’ve got something you’d like to show-off to the world (it has to be book related, or at least a movie/game that was based on a book), you can send it to me with your links over to xeoghazan@gmail.com because for now I only got my own stuff to pimp out. Today it’s Great Gatsby, Chandelier Fashion of the 20s inspired earrings. I can change the hooks as you prefer too (clip-on’s, french hooks, regular hooks), and currently have all three pairs available.

Victoria Schwab – Vicious [1]

ViciousOkay, I think I can now really say that Victoria Schwab is my favorite author. I swallowed her “Vicious” (Villains 1; ISBN 0765335344; 364p.; Goodreads) in yet another single-sitting. And I really hope it’s not gonna be a stand-alone, because the ideas these pages were filled with, and that wonderful, amazing, superb ending to it!… Ah.

Victor and Eli seem similar at the first glance. Both smarter than your average students. Both ambitious. Both very likely to try and pick unlikely things and see where it brings them. Thus, once told to find a research topic, they ran with it: extraordinary abilities induced by or acquired due to near-death experience. And since research in theory went so well, they decided to take it up a notch, and try it in practice. Here the similarities of the boys ended. For in death it is the greatest desire that echoes the loudest, reaching back. And one of them just happens to have a whole different understanding of self.

This is a story of heroes and villains. Or so it seems to the characters inside. Robber, killed by a hero who just happened to be there on the right time, in the right place, had no weapon on him. Hero, who stalks, and befriends the prey. Villains who pick up the stray people, offering shelter from the rain, and possibly pain. And this endless battle, between what? Good and evil? Decisions and consequences? Self-righteous men who are right, and selfless vengeful men who are…

Here’s my take on this story. Two similar boys with different understanding of self. One sees himself as a person who wants to, say, grow. The other one, believes himself right. And therefor, it’s not the growing that concerns him. It’s the memory he will leave behind. Thus when it came to superpowers, one of them told himself that God gave it to him, and therefor he is right. While the other one simply believed that this is how things are, and there’s no right, or for that matter, wrong. 5 out of 5, because bloody hell this was an amazing trip.
