LeakyCon 2018

Image result for leakycon

Hello bookish peeps! If you saw my Instagram story this past weekend you would’ve known that I attended my very first LeakyCon. If you don’t know what LeakyCon is, it is basically a huge convention dedicated to Harry Potter and all its stories and franchises.

My friend told me about this convention and I was stoked. When I told my sister about it (who is also a huge fan of Harry Potter), she decided to get us tickets as an early birthday present to me.

I’ve been to festivals before (book festivals, to be exact), but I never have been to a convention. I figured the two were similar, except one had more cosplaying than the other. I only went for one day (Friday), but it was a ton of fun.

You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag

image

Well, this tag sounds cheery! When I first saw the title, I was super confused as to what it was about, so here’s a little description to clear things up:

You pick 30 fictional characters and write their names down on pieces of paper. You then pluck two names at a time out to answer a question – so there are 15 questions. The aim of the game is to pick the character that fits the criteria the best and by doing so find the character that is not “good enough” for the answer.

I was tagged by the lovely Orangutan Librarian. Make sure to check out her blog and give her some love! ❤

Hocus Pocus Book Tag

I have a confession to make: I’ve never watched Hocus Pocus. Okay, so hear me out. Although I grew up in America, I did not grow up in the American culture. So, I’ve never watched timeless movies like Princess Bride and Hocus Pocus. (Okay, I have watched Princess Bride, but only recently). I grew up without a TV, and my family never went to the movie theatres because there weren’t any nearby, which is why I had to turn to books for entertainment.

I was tagged by the lovely Laura over at The Book Corps. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love!

The Fall Book Tag

It’s already half way through November, which means fall is coming to an end.

(If you can’t tell, I really like the fall season.)

I’ve been pretty behind on blogging and reading in general, but when I saw that I was tagged to do the Fall Book Tag, I had to get onto it immediately… except I didn’t. These past couple weeks have been rough and I haven’t been able to get enough sleep, even on weekends. That’s why I’ve been struggling to keep up with everything. Also, I discovered the Webtoons app and have been obsessed with all the comics and stories on it ever since, putting me even more behind on work.

No excuses, though! I screwed my head on straight again and now I’m going to try and stop procrastinating to get my life back on track (and hopefully get a little bit more sleep).

I was tagged by the lovely Marta over at The Book Mermaid. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love ❤

The Rules:

  • Please link back to Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag!! She wants to see your answers!!
  • Use the graphics – if you want
  • Have fun!

Favorite Villains

Heroes are usually celebrated by everyone for their heroism (obviously) and overall awesomeness, but where’s the love for the villains? Although they are bad beings, I can’t help but love them. Unless you’re Professor Umbridge. Then you can burn for all I care. I’m also not a big fan of Voldemort, mainly because he (in my opinion) was pretty bland compared to the rest of the characters.

Sometimes I am more interested in the villain than the protagonist in the story. Take, for example, the trickster god Loki (who is on this list). Between Thor and Loki, I’d rather learn more about the “villain”. He just seems much more interesting than Thor (sorry, dude. You’re still really cool). There’s something about a person who doesn’t have many morals that makes them rather intriguing. I’m not saying that they’re good people, but they are interesting to watch/read about.

Harry Potter Book Tag

I was tagged by Ava over at Reads, Rhythms, & Ruminations. Thanks so much for tagging me! I think doing something Harry Potter related is a good way to start off the new year.

I’ve already done this tag once before, and if you want to see my previous answers, click here. I’m going to try and not give the same answers that I did in my previous post by mainly using the books I read in 2016.

It’s finally starting to feel like fall where I live. After having a good six months of 90+ ˚F (32+ ˚C) weather, I’m about ready to bust out my sweaters and finally go outside without sweating buckets.

I was tagged by Heather over at The Sassy Book Geek. Thanks so much for tagging me! Don’t forget to check out her blog. She writes really thoughtful and honest reviews.

I Finally Got Sorted into a Hogwarts and Ilvermorny House!

I’ve always known about Pottermore, but I never actually took the Hogwarts house sorting quiz. Now that it was recently announced that there’s a witch and wizard school in America (and in honor of Harry Potter’s birthday month), I decided to finally take both of the quizzes.

I was always the nerdy one in my friend group. I love reading about the weirdest facts, and watch educational videos for fun. Yup. That’s what I do in my freetime. While my peers are going out to the mall to hang out, I stay in bed and watch documentaries. So obviously growing up, I thought I was a Ravenclaw. Boy, was I wrong!
