I'm on the Youtube!!

 



Hello fellow bookworms! It has been a minute! A lot of my bookish focus has been on the instagram (@bookworm_yogi) but I want to dust off the ol' blog and get back to giving it equal focus, and I am returning with an announcement...*Drumroll* I am on youtube! Okay, I know the post title already gave that away but just roll with me here. What happens during a pandemic and 3 lockdowns? Boredom. Complete and utter boredom! In that boredom, my boyfriend and I thought a youtube channel would be a good idea! What is on this youtube channel you ask? We hope to make it a variety channel where it's just us talking about stuff and making fun of pop culture. Right now, my boyfriend Adam, is currently reading all of my instagram book reviews, with his own flair, and by flair, I mean he makes complete fun of me! 

We're both big nerds who like to play video games, board games, read, and watch movies, and we hope to document our journey through these things all while enjoying an adult beverage! I hope you'll join us! I will post where you can find us below. I truly hope to see you there! If you stop by, be sure to comment and say hello! And if you have any suggestions on what you want us to record, please let us know in any of the videos comments! I'll leave you with a video here, in hopes that it will entice you to pop over to youtube and give us a follow there :) 

Love always,

your neighbourhood bookworm, The Crazy Bookworm, aka, Bookworm_Yogi, aka, Catam Concoction

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven



MINI REVIEW:

You guys, I am not okay! This book wrecked me. I've heard so many great things about this book, and it, regretfully, sat on my shelf for years before I finally picked it up. I have to admit, the Netflix movie release is what pushed me to finally read it. Boy, did this book not disappoint. It's simultaneously heart-warming and heart-breaking. It warms the soul while it tugs at your heart. It's beautiful and it's ugly. It makes you feel a cluster of emotions that you weren't prepared for. I laughed, I cried... I sobbed... Like a baby...that lost its favourite blanky...that was swaddling its favourite stuffy. I did watch the movie after finishing it, and I must say, I was happy with its adaptation. I thought they did a lovely job at bringing this story to life, and I thought both lead actors really captured the pain in both characters. The movie wrecked me just as much as the book did. Have your read this book or watched the movie? What were your thoughts?

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson


MINI REVIEW:

This is not my usual type of reading. I am a huge fan of the movie because #johnnydepp but have never read the book. I have been in a MAJOR reading funk and a friend of mine suggested this for a quick read, he was right! I devoured this book! Having seen the movie, I totally read it in the voices of Raoul and Gonzo but I was still just as entertained! It's a wild, tripy and at times, hilarious ride. I walked away with quite the buzz after reading 😂 After reading the book it became even more clear that Depp and Del Toro were the perfect casting choices. I'm surprised this was the book that took me out of my funk, but I'm glad it did! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

In Five Years by Rebecca Serle


MINI REVIEW:


Going by Goodreads, I am clearly in the minority with this book. I struggled between giving 2.5 or 3 stars but settled for 3 because it did have its moments.

I couldn't connect at all with the main character Dannie but I really liked Bella, and the author did a really great job at penning the strong bond between Dannie and Bella. I did find the premise a bit misleading. In my opinion, it's not quite as the book describes(trying to stay spoiler-free) and because of that, it left me disappointed.

Overall, this book has some high points but the rest of it was just an okay read for me. There are moments that will tug on your heartstrings so for that, it gets 3 stars from me!

Have you read this? What did you think?

The Happily Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez


MINI REVIEW:

All of the stars!!  *Deep sigh* Abby Jimenez does it again(insert slow clap here). She knows exactly how to open up your chest cavity and shove her characters deep inside of your heart where they will live forever! Dammit, this book was so good! 

The Happily Ever After Playlist follows Sloan, Kristen's best friend from The Friend Zone. To remain spoiler-free, if you haven't read the first book, I won't dive too deep into the content of the story. But we do follow Sloan through a whirlwind of emotions and travels. Jimenez plays your heart like a marionette, and she the masterful puppeteer! Her writing is absolutely sensational. You can't help but quickly become so invested in the characters. If you read the first book, then you'll be excited to hear that Kristen and Josh are just as much a part of this story as Sloan was in theirs. It was so great to be with the gang again. I loved, adored, cherished every minute of this book!
