Book Haul January 2020 🕊


hey everyone I am so thankful you are here
I’m so grateful you took the time to watch this video and are sharing your
precious time with me spending time here on my channel with me. I am a
dreamer and many other things a wife a creative a Pokemon plushie owner… you get
the point! but especially, a bookworm I’m obsessed with stories I love to write
them read them hear other people’s stories I consume books like Kirby and
inhales things hopefully you’ll see through my videos that I value
imagination and magic but if you take anything away from stopping by my
digital space today I hope it’s this appreciate the beauty in small details
and mundane things in life and appreciate the timing of every single
experience that had to happen in the miraculous exact precise way to make you,
you. Even if nobody on earth watches these videos except for me, I would
continue to keep making them for myself and for fun because I love to collect
beautiful little snippets in time. I love compiling them and I love pushing myself
to grow by putting myself out there which isn’t comfortable for me at all.
One reason I made this channel was to track my reading and push myself to read
more books which it has definitely helped me accomplish (being part of the booktube community). And if anyone finds even one book they enjoy through me that
makes me so happy. But I also made it just to post whatever videos I wanted to
make. I have loved being behind any camera I could get my hands on since I
was a kid and as someone who didn’t always have access to a lot, I learned to
be resourceful to create things. As the quote goes, bloom where you’re planted. It
brings about a sort of joy and that is what making a videos out of my life is
for me. I hope that gave you some insight on what to expect with my channel. Back
to the video! So the first book I have to talk about in this haul today is a
children’s book and I picked it up because freaking dragons! I love dragons.
Anything that has to do with dragons and fantasy usually piques my attention and
so this one’s summary says, “with lonely Ben aboard brave dragon rider, fire
Drake seeks mythical place where silver dragons can live in peace over moonlit
lands and sparkling seas, they meet fantastic
creatures, summon up surprising courage and cross a ruthless villain with an
ancient grudge determined to end their quest. Only a secret destiny can
save the Dragons and bring them the true meaning of home. It just sounds like a
wonderful adventure – a swashbuckling good time and I’m here for it! The second book
I have to talk about today I’ve actually heard that there might be a movie
adaption for it in the works and this book is called “the one and only Ivan” and
it is by Katherine Applegate it says “Ivan is an easygoing gorilla living at
the exit 8 big top mall and video arcade. He has grown accustomed to humans
watching him through the glass walls of his domain. He rarely misses his life in
the jungle. In fact he hardly ever thinks about it at all. Instead, Ivan thinks
about TV shows he’s seen and about his friends Stella, an elderly elephant and
Bob, a stray dog. But mostly Ivan thinks about art. And how to capture the taste
of a mango or the sound of leaves with colour and a well-placed line. Then he
meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from her family and she makes Ivan see their
home and his own art through new eyes. When Ruby arrives, changing comes with
her and it’s up to Ivan to make a change for the better.
K atherine applegate blends humor and poignancy to create Ivan’s unforgettable
first-person narration in a story of friendship. Third ones I have to
mention- three and four sort of- is fruits basket. And I got fruits basket
collection and “another” because I wanted to compare the two mangas because I
wasn’t really sure.. I was kind of confused and it turns out… sorry not sorry for the interruption but
you have reached the three three three point of this video which means it’s
where I stop everything and do my project uplift booktube! So basically
this is where I just stop and give a shout out. I want to make it clear that I
don’t think I’m a big book tuber. I don’t think that I have anything special going
on or that I’m better than anyone else. It’s not about that. But I do remember
how nice it feels every time that someone else that had something good
going for them stopped and helped me out. And so I want to pass that along and
just create a cycle of good karma like that. I encourage anyone else to join in
and do the same it’s just a good way to keep good things going and to keep our
community stronger and to just show each other some love. Remember that complements cost
you nothing and kindness is free. Now back to the main programming. That the
fruits basket one collection is what I thought initially and what I was hoping
it was. Which is just, you know, the first few mangas and stuff bound up into one.
But the fruits basket another it turns out is a totally different storyline.
It’s actually about like completely different characters and stuff and I
wasn’t aware of that when I picked it up. I wasn’t sure if it was maybe the same
story told with different art that sometimes happens. You know, like Sailor
Moon has lots of different versions of like the same story. Just different
editions that have come out of those stories. So I wasn’t sure if that was
what the case was but it turns out that fruit basket another follows like in
clearly different storylines. So it’s really exciting to read some more manga.
And the final book that I have to talk about for this haul this month is “nine
perfect strangers”. I heard a lot of hype about this one across bookish social
media and I decided that I want to find out what it is about for myself. Could ten
days at a healthy resort really change you forever? These nine perfect strangers
are about to find out. Niine perfect people gather at a remote health resort.
Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life . Some are
here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. And it’s all of the luxury
and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation. They know that these ten days
might involve some real work but none of them could imagine just how challenging
the next 10 days are going to be..Frances Welty, , the formerly best-selling romantic
novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a bad back, a broken heart and
exquisitely painful paper cut. She’s immediately intrigued by her
fellow guests, most of them don’t look to be in need of a health resort at all but
the perfect that intrigues that intrigues her the most is the
strange and charismatic owner /director of Tranquillum House. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn’t even know she was seeking? answers Frances didn’t even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer—or should she run while she still can? It’s not long before every guest at Tranquillum House is asking exactly the same question. Combining all of the hallmarks that have made Liane Moriarty’s writing a go-to for anyone looking for wickedly smart, page-turning fiction that will make you laugh and gasp, Nine Perfect Strangers once again shows why she is a master of her craft.
So I thought that one sounded really interesting. I saw a movie called knives
out, which is like, it happens in a big house. It’s kind of like a murder mystery.
Like a sort of whodunit and the summary kind of gave me that by like a bunch of
people in one house. There’s a big, you know, lots of things to discover. Lots of
twists and turns lot to find out. So I was curious if it had that sort of
“whodunit” that kept you guessing. I feel that was what I was interested in hopefully
finding out when I read this book. Thank you guys so much for watching. Let me
know if you’ve picked up any books to read this month, Let me know if you have
made any booktube videos this month. Let me know any of the bookish things or
just tell me about your life , it doesn’t have to just be bookish! Feel free to say
anything you want to say. So thank you guys so much for stopping by and
especially if you made it all the way to the end! Thank you for spending time with
me! Alright bye!
