We’re nearly halfway through March, I hope you are all having a great month! Of course, with a new month comes a new Reading Challenge for the Blogger Book Nook. This month is definitely a good one and I’m really excited to get stuck in, this month’s Reading Challenge is Books to Screen. This month is all about reading books that have been made into TV Series/Movie adaptions.
It does feel that every movie is based on something, I think most of the books on my bookcase are also in my film collection. We receive our monthly Reading Challenge from either Abbey or Tabitha, two of the kindest girls, on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! This is also the perfect opportunity to get to know new bloggers, ones that have a similar interest, books and reading.
Right, let’s get on with March’s Reading Challenge.
I am really excited to share with you today’s post! Remember that little Blogger Book Nook I introduced you to earlier this month? Well, that was September’s Reading Challenge so you are lucky this month as there will be two posts as today I am introducing you to October’s Reading Challenge! I am really enjoying being a part of this community, everyone is really friendly and I’ve been getting along with them all very well. There is always fresh content on their Facebook page.
Be it content from other bloggers, questions of the day and just general chit chat! I am very excited by this month’s Reading Challenge as it fits in very nicely with what is happening at the end of the month! Yup, that’s right, I am speaking about Halloween, meaning a Spooktacular theme for October. Now I adore Halloween, don’t get me wrong, but I am not the biggest fan of scary movies. I think the scariest I’ve watched is stuff like The Walking Dead! I could never watch It, The Shining or even Saw.
As you’ll know, along with being a Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger, there is another side to me, I am a massive Geek at heart! I love everything from Vampire Diaries to Harry Potter and many great games. Recently I came across a tag on ZombieGoddess Beauty called The Geeky Girl Tag, I was in love with it and knew I needed to do it for myself, especially as I don’t normally speak about my geek side.
I was kindly invited by Thespis Project Theatre Company to attend their performance of The Wrong Side of Prohibition with a few other bloggers from Plymouth. This was the first performance by Thespis that I have watched and it didn’t fail to amaze me. The performance explores the lives of gangsters in 1920s America.
An era that I’ve always wanted to know more about, as after watching Vampire Diaries I fell in love with it. Anastasios Chalas portrayed the club owner Tony, who showed good interactions with the other characters, despite acting like a strong character there were those moments where you sympathized for him. He had an amazing bond with all the actors and their characters.
Where on earth did February go! Felt like yesterday that it was the end of January, now it’s the end of another month and on to another Favourites. It was quite tricky for this month, as there was nothing that stood out to me like last month. I have managed it though and here is a summary of those things I’ve enjoyed this month!
When I was in primary school, I could remember all the national days, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, them all, only because school reminded me when they were around the corner. One day that I used to always love was World Book Day because it was packed with fun activities and of course we were allowed to dress up as our favourite book character!
I thought I would take a little trip down memory lane and speak all about this celebration of authors, books, illustrators and of course reading! Tomorrow, Thursday 2 March marks the twentieth celebration of this day. I actually thought it was older than this, I never realised it was something that I had grown up with as I’m twenty-two this year.
