Bookish Buzzwords

buzzΒ·word

  1. a word or phrase, often an item of jargon, that is fashionable at a particular time or in a particular context.

Hey, guys, it’s been awhile so glad to be doing a blog post after a week of silence, hope you are well. As you can see in today’s post I am going to discuss Bookish Buzzwords, it essentially one word that sums up a certain tone or theme about what the book is about. For example, if the blurb states the book is about Friendship or War to kind of pitch and grab the reader’s attention, I have a few of these Buzzwords that I would like to share with you today and if you have any books that are about or have some aspect of these buzzwords do tell me, I am always down for book recommendations😊 keep on reading

Winter Book Recommendations

β€œWinter is coming.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Hey, fellow readers lovely to see you and hope life is being kind, today’s post is inspired by Cormac McCarthy’s The Road (Review) and that is currently winter in some places abroad but 1000 degrees in Nairobi. I really can’t stand the mosquitoes and the uncomfortable heat, the rainy season needs to get here sooner before my skin actually melts.

β€œThere’s nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over. When you do, the words get inside you, become a part of you, in a way that words in a book you’ve read only once can’t.”

In this post today we are going to tackle the books I will be revisiting this year (hopefully) because I want to familiarise myself with the book, so as to continue with the series or just get back to the world I once enjoyed. Last year I reread 5 books and the harry potter series and let me tell you it was so delightful.

2016 Honourable Mentions (Favourite Books-Edition) #RunnersUp

It’s that time of the year where the majority of blogs will bombard you with favourites and try to convince you to try out various Blogs, Music, Books and all other things that made it for them in 2016. I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoy this sort of post because it’s always a treat to see people genuinely excited about things and I am more inclined to pick up something if it comes highly recommended. Regardless, this post is just close to the favourite list in which I am going to speak about books that were amazing but didn’t make it to the TOP LIST, so stick around and prepare to be introduced to the HONORABLE MENTION BOOKS that should be on your shelves.

It was only a matter of time before I did this post and I am sure as I continue finding more of King works I will post another one in the not so distant future. He has been one of the best authors I have ever read and I have acquired a sizeable amount of his work. Some people have been asking me… where to start, is he as scary as everyone claims to be, is it hard to get into his work etc. This sparked an idea for a blog post and I can share my experience on how I discovered King and which of his books are more accessible.
