Honestly, I can't believe how fast time has come and gone - I'm still feeling like the first semester of 2015 has just started. That goes to show how much school is having an impact on me, but let's not focus on that. Love is in the air - Valentine's Day is only two days away! Do you have your Valentine's Day cards ready? Or perhaps you have a special dinner date in mind? Anyhoo, today we have one of the characters from Bricks by John Davidson, sharing with you his favourite memory of Valentine's Day! It's going to be an interesting conversation, so for now I'll hand over the reins to John Davidson, the author of Bricks!
Why a bedside table and not a nightstand? Two reasons: 1) Kat doesn't have a nightstand, and 2) Bedside tables provide way more book-piling space. Especially if you're suddenly in the mood for 2561957 books at once.
What's On My Bedside Table is a new, sporadic feature on Perusing Bookshelves. Being a huge mood reader, Kat wanted a bookish feature that would convey the whimsical side of her. In this feature she will be featuring the various stuff on her bedside table: books that she's meaning to -but not necessarily- read, souvenirs from places that she's been to lately, or perhaps a bookmark that she's dying to show you all. Who knows?
I just knew the goodness of 2014 wouldn't last.
Last year, I had a lot of hopes and goals for 2015. To read more, to write more, to be motivated to be a better person in general and to be more inspired...you get the idea. And so, when the first week of school rolled around, I was not prepared for the many obstacles that would be standing squarely in the way of achieving all these goals. Namely, SCHOOL. What was I thinking when I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge for 100 books this year?!?!
That's what you get for being so naive, Kat.
To make this clear, I go to a selective school. And what comes with it? Homework. Tons and tons of it. And good grades. I'll have to begin my revision even though it's just the start of the semester. It wasn't that bad last year and the year before that (I was pretty busy but still, I could finish at least one book per week), but I should've been smart enough to realize that this is the year that I'll have to be more focused on my studies and everything is going to be really pressuring. I was in denial when I wrote that 2015 Resolutions post but I SHOULDN'T HAVE. Now I barely have enough time to finish my homework. When'll I have time for that TBR book that I've been meaning to read? How do I even update my blog, which I usually spend, at the very least, 2 hours doing??
Kat is a voracious reader who enjoys nothing more than losing herself in a good book. Fantasy is definitely her cup of tea. She often complains about never having enough time to read and constantly struggles with keeping her TBR pile a considerably decent size. Read more or keep up with her bookish whims on Goodreads or bloglovin.
none at the moment!
