What I read last, am reading, and am reading next

I’ve gotten lots of lovely comments from my followers and….I’m staying!

So for my first “good” post in a while, let’s talk a little about books, shall we? I’ll be doing three: what I read last, what I am currently reading, and what I plan on reading next. So…I think some people have a name for this and do a regular blog post, but I’m not really sure, haha. Anyways here we go!

  • What I read last: The Vanishing Game

IMG_6906
This book was so creepily thrilling! I loved it! If you’re into sci-fi Mystery thrillers you should definitely give it a shot! It seriously made a little paranoid for like an entire day…but it was worth it!

  • What I’m currently reading: Lost In A Book

IMG_6907
An enchanted book traps Belle in the Beasts library…can she escape? Or will she be trapped in the enchanted books world forever? This has been very interesting with every turn of the next page! It has a few twists that make it just off track enough from the original you can’t put it down. I’m very close to the end, and I can already tell it won’t have the ending you would expect!

  • What I’m going to read next: Hit The Road

IMG_6908I can’t wait to start this book! It’s not my usual genre, it’s more of a comedy, but I’m so excited to read it! I think it’s going to be great! And hilarious!

Have you read any of these books or want to?

Share in the comments!

All the best,

Wordjunkie

If I Stay

I’m not discussing the book here😂 I talked to my mom yesterday and she said I should keep Wordjunkie going, and I want to. I really do, I love it.

But do you guys want me to stay? I mean I love my blog but do you guys? If I stay I’m sure I’ll start doing more stuff like I was when I first started. Plus, I have another book I can give away!

I need more than just wanting to keep it going. I need you guys to give me some feedback here. So please like, comment and share. I need to know if you guys really want me to stick around.

All the best,

Wordjunkie

Please go give me a follow! ❤

Sincerely,

Wordjunkie xx

The Cramm Award

Thank you Jirah Merizz SO much for nominating me for this award! It’s lovely the questions are really good and deep.

So this award was created by The Cramm which will help bloggers to be recognized!

The Rules for this Award are:

  • Include that little tidbit about who created this (epic) award (with a link to the website)
  • Mention the person who nominated you
  • Share three things that motivate you to blog
  • Share three people who inspire you to blog
  • Share one thing you hope to do to improve the world
  • Answer your challenge question
  • Nominate 10+ bloggers and give them a fun “challenge question”

Three things that motivate me to blog:

  • Journals. I keep journals and just write my ideas and everything in them. Often times when I’m writing in them a light bulb goes off and I want to blog!  
  • Talking to people. When I talk to people, things they say, or just who they are and the vibe they give. People are extraordinary creatures and sitting down and having a real conversation with someone can inspire me in many different ways.
  • Reading my Bible. This inspires me to be a better a person, and encourage others to do so too, it gives me a energy that I want to share and inspire others.

Three people who inspire me to blog:

  • God. He is a constant light in my life and helps me through my doubt and encourages me to be a light in others.
  • Other bloggers. I know I’ve said this before but you guys are all amazing. I think it’s wonderful how everyone is so kind when we don’t personally know each other. You’re willing to help, give advice, and become email buddies! Strangers inspire me, are happy for me, and are willing to help me if I need it.That is amazing.
  • My family. My family helps me come up with ideas, jokes around with me and makes me happy in general. Being blessed with the family I have is an inspiration to me to be a friend to you all. I’m more than willing to lend an ear if you need one. 🙂

One thing I hope to do to improve the world: 

  • Love. I want to start a new blog and focus it more on encouraging others to be themselves and love themselves for who they are. I struggle with self love and anxiety, but I’m learning to overcome it and i want to help others to overcome it to. To encourage others to love each other.

Jirah Merizz‘s Question: 

If you were given a chance to correct your mistake or start a new life, would you take the chance? Why or why not?

I would, because even though you can’t change the past, you can be forgiven for it. And that pain can be taken away and replaced with a new purpose.

I nominate:

Azura Skies

an extraordinary girl in an extraordinary world

Muse

Tara (flower in a rainy day)

Jessica 

My question:

When you feel your most down, and go to your blog, do you vent or do you instead post about something that makes you happy and focus on the good in your situation? Why or why not?

You guys have all been amazing supporters throughout my leaving and being here and I thank you all so much for that!

I love being able to blog, it’s a really enjoyable thing. Especially when I get to interact with other bloggers because you guys are all so sweet and encouraging!
