Recent Rambles: Writers Block

So I have an explanation, I guess after the massive change on my blog, I thought that I would be full of ideas and would want to write but it has been something I have become scared of. Writing I mean... 

I mean as I go to write this post I want to think of literally any explanation to make me stop writing. Do I need a snack? Do I need a drink? Can I do anything apart from this blog post? Let's face it I have done that, it has been over a month since my last blog post and I could have done it but I have been stuck. I did not want to write anything, it is like my brain can not get the words out it the way that I want them to, I become scared that anything I was writing was not good enough. Even something as simple as my manifesto for Harry Potter society became a chore and I ended up procrastinating for a long time and I know that it was not anything like I wanted it to be. Writing for fun became a chore because of the academics that I have been writing for literally the last month. 

It was not only the fact I feel like writing for fun was hard, ideas were hard too. I mean this idea in itself is not that good, I mean it is a life update post but I could do so much more with this but I have limited ideas. I mean I could do tags and stuff but I want to do more discussions but I feel like I have nothing to discuss. I don't know. 

People say that the only thing that cures things like this is time but I want to start posting again, I have come to far to stop now! Just forgive me if my posts are a bit dodgy over the next couple of weeks because I might not have that many ideas. 

I hope you stick with me and if you survived this ramble because I do not think even I did. 

Also, if you have any ideas for topics that you would like me to discuss, leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon, 

Amy 

I survived writing the post!

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Diversity Bingo 2017

To continue with my aim of reading diversely, I decided at the beginning of the year that I was going to do the Diversity Bingo Challenge. The idea of this being to read 36 books and complete the bingo-like sheet with the aim being to read as much diverse fiction as possible. Like a lot of people in the bookish community, I wanted to continue reading more diverse books and thought this would be the way to do it. This post is to update myself and others on my progress in this challenge so if you are looking for recommendations in what to read please look here, herehere and here. So let's get started...
