Around the Blog #8 – Bookish movies, the truth about Dumbledore (?!) & more!

Hello, friends!

The weather is starting to change. Last week, it was nice and sunny, but while the sun is still out, this week it’s a bit colder, windy, and we’re having a lot more rain. Basically, it’s starting to feel more Autumn-y and I’m more than okay with that. I’m looking forward to reading books while covered up with a blanket πŸ™‚

Aside from the weather, it’s been an okay week for me. Not spectacular but not bad either. I got stuck on my WIP for a day or two but I think I’ve sorted it out so I’m happy about that. Blogging-wise, I’m keeping up with my schedule so that’s good too.

What about you? How’s your week been? Let me know down below.

And speaking of blogging, let’s get on with my favourite posts this week…

Around the Blog is a weekly post that will feature my favourite posts I’ve read during that week. It’s my way of appreciating other bloggers’ content and to share the love for the chosen posts and bloggers with my followers in the hope they’ll love them as much as I do.

Six Bookish Movies I’m Excited About by Michelle @ I’m an Adventurist: I know many people are getting tired of book to movie adaptations (especially YA books) but not me! If it’s done right, there’s nothing better than seeing your favourite book on the screen. I’m most excited about Simons vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. I really really really hope they’ve done it justice and it’s going to be AH-MAZING.

Dumbledore, Saviour or Just as Bad as Voldemort by Sarah @ Sarah Withers Blog: if that title doesn’t get you to click I don’t know what will. Title aside, I thought this was a very interesting discussion post. Sarah brought up some good arguments as to why Dumbledore might not be as good as you thought he was. Go check it out!

My Blog Design Resources by Bridget @ Bridget and Books: I love this post because it gives us non-artistic people some tips and tricks on how to make our blog prettier. And who better to listen to than Bridget? She’s got one of the prettiest designs around so you should definitely visit her blog and have a look around.

Rain Day Reads by @Thrice Read: like I said, I love reading a good book while it’s raining outside so this is the perfect post for me. Thrice Read shares five books that are perfect for reading while it’s pouring outside.

That’s it for this week!

So… how do you feel about Dumbledore? What are your favouriteΒ rain day reads? Are you looking forward to the Simon vs.Β movie as much as I am? And what are some of your favourite blog designs? Let me know and/or drop a comment on the original post!

  1. Thank you for sharing these lovely posts, Lauren! It’s starting to feel like autumn here, too, and… I miss summer already, but I guess it’s also great to be back in my comfortable sweaters haha. I’m so glad you ended up sorting everything out for your WIP. I kind of feel stuck at the moment and it is so depressing.
    Great post πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks so much for sharing my post, Lauren πŸ’– I think Simon is going to be an amazing movie and I can’t wait to go see it! My favourite rainy day read is probably Harry Potter or a fluffy contemporary.
