Something Ends, Another Begins.

Dear reader, I am making a change and it’s a big one.
I am moving all of my blogs into one specific one and I hope you will come with me in this change. I will miss you awfully if you don’t. Please find all the information you might need on the new blog site.

Back to School?

Dear readers,

I have, as you might have guessed, returned from my vacation. I have also started working which might explain my absence from blogging and youtube. It’s a new job and everything is scary and new and has to be put into routine. And that, my dear readers, feels very far off.

I am hoping that within a month I’ll be back on track and be able to update you more regularly.

I have my review on Wonder by R.J Palacio filmed. I just need to get around to editing it!
I have a few videos planned – but when they’ll  be created and uploaded is a very good question. I’ll insert a list below and you can tell me which ones you want me to talk about first.
Hunger Games Book Talk (before Cathing Fire movie)
Scott Westfield – Uglies Series Book Talk (don’t want to make one for each book so it’ll be a BT instead!)
Chris Colfer – Struck by Lightning
Alex Flinn – Bewitching

I’m currently reading City of Bones, but obviously it is taking quiet some time since I only have time to read on the train – and sometimes not even then!

Now I’m going to go back to my cozy saturday – the only day I have time to breath.
Although, I’m sitting with my laptop and doing things for work at the same time.

Vacation Reads Update #1

Dear reader,

Thought I’d update you a little. We’ve now been here since Tuesday and I’ve finished reading the Uglies series.
It was a very good read and you can expect a book talk when I get home. I might film it here – if I can muster the strength.
I’ve been suffering from dehydration and heat stroke so I’ve spent quite some time stuck in my room, reading and enjoying the AC 🙂
I just started Bewitching by Alex Flinn. It’s on my ereader, but who knows how long the battery will last me. Thank god for me bringing extra books so I don’t have to worry too much over that! 🙂

Now I need to have a look at my other blogs and then I might head up to my room again for an hour while the sun cools off…. It’s absolutely scorching between 11-15 and you just want to die!

Keep reading,

Vacation Reads

Dear reader,
I am about to head to the airport for a two week vacation but I thought I’d update you a little before I leave.
I will be going to Tunis and any video update will be on my second channel in the form of iPhone videos. If I find wifi I will also try and blog.

I’m bringing my ereader and I’m currently reading the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld,
If the battery runs out I’ve bought two extra books,
Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
Struck by Lightning by Chris Colfer.

So those are the reads I’ll be focusing on while I’m gone.
Update you as soon as I can, bye now!

Books Galore

Hello readers,

I am here to inform you that I am still alive, even if I seem to have fallen of the face of the earth again.
I have posted three videos on my other channels and I do feel like I’m neglecting you guys a little.
I’m here to inform you about the books I’ve finished reading since my last post so you know what reviews to expect in the future.
I am going to film my Fifty Shades review/rant just because I feel like it needs to be done. At the same time I’ve finished John Green’s – an abundance of Katherine’s and also Kiera Cass – The Selection. I also have a few tween books that I could review for my younger viewers to keep them away from the Fifty Shades video.
I’ve also finished Beautiful Creatures which could be turned into a video.
I am planning on doing a video about what books I’m bringing with me on our vacation that is coming up in 5 weeks. I’m going to Tunisia for 2 weeks and I tend to plough through quite a few books by the poolside.
There is also a few tags that i feel like I want to do such as the Scavenger Hunt Tag and the Book Burger Tag. Would you like to see those or should I just stick to reviews?

I know I’m asking a lot of questions, but as I’ve said before – I make videos for myself but also for my viewers. I want to make sure you like what you are seeing so that you’ll stick around and the best way for me to know what you like is to ask for your opinions.
So, please, do me a huge favour and leave a comment below telling me what type of videos you’d like me to do in the summer months!

Keep reading,
xx Zandrina

Fifty Shades WHAT?!

Hello readers,

Yes, I have finished reading the fifty shades series – I did this about 2 weeks ago and now I need to figure out how I want to play this one out. Since it’s a book that isn’t appropriate for children and I know that I have students who read my blog I need to be careful.

I could make a video but that might be very easy for them to accidentally click, not knowing what it’s about.

I could just make a blog post, but I like talking more.

So, my best idea so far is to make a nice and cozy update video and have a link to an unlisted review video about the Fifty Shades series. Does this sound good to you? I hope so. I just need to finish another book/find another book to make a review of at the same time to lure my younger viewers into watching instead!

Until then, keep reading!
xx Zandrina
