A New Start

After the rather depressing post that I uploaded this time last year I decided that I couldn’t let this completely go down the drain.

I always knew that it would be hard for me to keep it up so there had to be a point where I broke and couldn’t carry on as I had because I always found it hard to find things to say for the books.

I have a few posts that I will be uploading that I had already written before my year away from this blog but once they have all been posted my reviews will be Very different.

I’ve decided that for me the easiest thing to do is basically what I do on Goodreads.

I add a book as I’m reading it or when I’ve finished reading it and I never add any comments but I always fill in the 5 star rating.

Therefore I’ve decided that I my posts will be very basic with the image of the book cover and the 5 star rating at the least. I will try to add a few words but if I have the intention of not having any words to support my rating the pressure will be less but I will try to write a sentence or two explain why I liked or didn’t like the book.

I will also include any quotes from the book that stood out to me. There may be a lot of quotes or there might not be any, it just depends what the book is about and if anything means anything to me at the time I read it.

21 Questions

So, this is the first of many posts that I will, hopefully, be completing today 🙂

Yesterday I finally had my last exam so that means that I am now free from revision and have 3 whole months of summer 🙂 so I thought I would start it with some blog posts 🙂

Now my good friend Becky over at Blogs-Of-A-Bookaholic tagged me in a post a couple of weeks ago now with 21 questions that she passed on to me. And as I have been busy revising for my exams I am only now able to answer them 🙂

So here goes: Continue reading

Exams

Anyone out there who has to do 10 hour exams will currently know exactly how I feel.

I am currently doing my ICT exam and it is spread out over three weeks. This does mean that we can go home and try to figure stuff out but right now, that is not helping me.

I am half way through the exam and stuck on Forms as this is a Database exam.

I would not be as far as I am if we hadn’t been able to look stuff up between the hours in the IT room. Continue reading
