What I’ve Been Up to #4: I Love Vlogging

why you should start vlogging, becoming a youtuber, making videos on youtube,

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I wrote a what I have been up to post and I wanted to update you all on a passion that I have recently discovered: vlogging. I started making YouTube videos last year after falling in love with booktube and having enough courage to start. Towards the end of the year I started making reading vlogs. However, my views weren’t great and I wanted to spend more time writing- insert blogging! I discovered the book blogging community and I started my blog, something that I am so grateful I did. In the last six months I have really grown my blog and I enjoy blogging so much.

I’ve been watching a lot of reading vlogs lately and my friend, Eleanor May started vlogging, I also watch EeveeEmmyVlog but I never thought that I could vlog because I don’t go out a ton. However, after seeing Eleanor start vlogging, that finally gave me the push to try and I am so glad that I did! I absolutely love vlogging, it is so much fun to record clips and talk to everyone through a different format. I even made a new book video, a TBR for booktubeathon. Whilst I am going to be keeping most book content on my blog, I will be talking about books within my vlogs. I am still going to be discussing other topics on my blog too so if there is anything you would like to see please let me know!

Although filming, editing and uploading is taking more of my time, I am really enjoying it and I am so glad to be back on YouTube. You can check out my channel here

What have you been up to lately?

Rapid Fire Book Tag

This is a book tag created by Kate from GirlReading (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-46EzDWdSY). There are a series of book related questions to answer so let’s go:
Q: E-Book or Physical Book?  A: E-book, I know this is a controversial answer but I love my kindle so much! It is light to hold, keeps my page open and tells me an estimate of how much longer I have left in the book which helps motivate me to keep reading.
Q: Paperback or Hardback?  A: I don’t really have a preference!
Q: Online or In-Store Book Shopping?  A: I love shopping in a book store. Being surrounded by books is one of my favourite places. I can look at all of the different books available and choose whichever is available at the time. I often find books that I wasn’t originally planning on buying!
Q: Trilogies or Series? A: I love series because then there are more books to read, as long as the books still continue to be great and there is enough story to last across more books.
Q: Heroes or Villains? A: Heroes but I do l…

Book Buddy Read with Eleanor May

I have wanted to buddy read with someone for a while. Buddy reading is where you and someone else read the same book around the same time and discuss it. However, I didn’t really have anyone who had the same reading tastes as me. I have become good friends with Eleanor from http://www.eleaanormay.com/ and we decided to buddy read!
I am so excited to read a book with her and if any of you want to join in please feel free to. The book we are reading is: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare!
Neither of us have read the Mortal Instruments series before and it is such a popular series. From what I know of this series, it follows teenagers who hunt demons. I was accidentally spoiled with one plot point that occurs later in the story but I am hoping it won’t affect my reading of this book very much. I am really looking forward to discovering this series with a friend.
Have any of you ever done a buddy read?
You can buy City of Bones here: Amazon UK, Audible UK, Amazon US, Audible US, Book Depositor…

Five Things I Learnt From My Internet Detox

I just finished doing 48 hours without internet in aid of Cancer Research UK. Here are the things that I learnt during this time.

1.It is ok to use the internet sometimes 

I often feel bad that I use the internet as much as I do. I think that I should be doing other things instead. However, I have realised that it is ok to use the internet. It is ok to spend time on social media, post things and talk to others, as long as you are not spending too long on there or spending time on social media or accounts that make you feel bad about yourself.

2.Without internet you can relive some good old times
Not having access to internet 24/7 reminded me of when I was younger and we literally did not have access to internet 24/7. We had to spend our time in other ways. The one activity that I spent most of my time doing was playing video games. I used to love spending time playing the same game over and over again and a lot of the games I never even completed because they were too difficult for me bu…
