#ThisIsWhoIAm - A The Square Root of Summer Inspired post

   As you can see by the title, this is going to be a different blog post and one that until last week I did not know I would be making. I received an ARC of The Square Root of Summer by entering a giveaway so did not think that I would be involved in the a social media campaign but alas here we are... 
          So after that ramble, I should explain what I am doing in this blog post. So because of the release of The Square Root of Summer, Pan Macmillian have asked us to show a time capsule of what life is like in this moment of Summer 2016. I have decided to do a blog post full of all the aspects of my time capsule, so let's get started...

1. Marvel

I am also loving Marvel: Agents of Shield as well, I imagine that if I did this the same time next year it would be the same because Spiderman Homecoming...

1. An Empty Notepad/Notebook

Again, this is another weird one, but I just seem to have about five notepads on my desk right now and they are very important. If I am not using a notepad to write down a revision schedule, then I am using it as a revision tool. Not only this but in late March I got myself a notepad for blog post ideas, it is fair to say that it has not been used that much recently. To me, this also means something because over the summer I want to write and having it empty just means that the pad may be full over the summer. Who knows...

3. A Selection of Books

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)        Considering this is a book blog, books are obviously important in my life right now. I would definitely have to include a copy of Harry Potter. Not only does this book have a lot of meaning to me all the time, it has a lot of meaning now. I am Secretary of my University's Harry Potter society and will also be part of it next year. This means that my summer will be full of all things Harry Potter, organising events for next year as well as a reread. 
Paper Girls, Vol. 1The Square Root of Summer         I would also include a copy of The Square Root of Summer as it is my current read now and is just a book that represents summer for me, being a contemporary. This is also a book about time travel and I am literally obsessed with anything based around that subject right now.
        Graphic novels are also of important to me now so would also have to be included in a time capsule. Not only have I been reading lots of graphic novels like Paper Girls but I have also got lots of different graphic novels in the post so this is not one that would fade away anytime soon. 
Wreck This JournalTell Us Something True         Another book that I would include is the Tell Us Something True because this was my last read and it was one of my favourite books of the year and it definitely represents the time of my life right now. 
         The final book that I will include in the time capsule is my Wreck This Journal. I have tried to use my journal as a way to encompass almost all of my feelings, thoughts and desires from the last year so it is a great representation of me as a person right now. This is also something that I will continue to work on over the summer so it is a perfect thing to include. 

4. Music in any form

I consider music to be a massive influence on my life, not just right now but forever although my tastes would definitely change over time, I hope in the future I will not hate my picks. So right now I am obsessed with Coasts, Troye Sivan, Alessia Cara, Halsey, Birdy's new album and Carly Rae Jepsen's Emotion. I also really like Faded by Alan Walker. So there is that...

5. A selection of my favourite TV shows and films

            So my notion is that you can judge a person by their favourite books and television shows and this is definitely important, being a way of me relaxing or winding down especially after a day of revision. Also films have become increasing important, because not only am I taking a film module at Uni but I have found a new love for different types of films than I ever did before. My favourite TV shows are currently Agents of Shield, The 100 and I finished 11.22.63 which I really enjoyed. Also, I really love the films Run, Lola, Run and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which are really great and I suggest that you watch them.  

6. A picture of the University Of Essex

This is literally my life right now and I have had so many ups and downs and had experiences that I will not forget and that will shape me as the person I aspire to be. This is definitely an accurate interpretation of who I am right now. 

7. Social Media

OK so this is the last one in my time capsule and social media is a massive part of my life. Not only do I spread a lot of my time on Youtube, Twitter is also a way to communicate with fellow book bloggers and book lovers on a weekly basis so is definitely part of who I am. 

So this is my interpretation of the #ThisIsWhoIAm Social Media Campaign, I don't how if I did it right but... Oh Well...

What would you put in your time capsule? Leave it in the comments below.

See you soon,

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...
