MIA: Where I’ve been and blog plans!

Helloooo *awkward wave*

So, the last time I did a review was…*goes to check*…August? Ouch. I pretty much just disappeared from social media.

To my friends, I’m super sorry. I missed and love you. ;-;

So, where did I go? Or rather, why did I disappear?

I was way too intense with the blog and it lost the fun…ness(?) because of it. I’m also an introvert and I took break which continued to the point where it made it difficult to just come back. Yeah…

I’ve also been crocheting a lot, (even opened an etsy store!) (I also have a craft blog ) So reading took a little backseat.

BUT I’M BACK! \o/

My plans for the blog

Well, it’s still going to be a book blog, (obviously.) (Though the occasional TV/movie review may sneak their way  in.)

But, I’ll be taking a more relaxed attitude to it. No schedules of, ‘there will definitely be a book review this day or that day’. And, the reviews themselves will be a little more casual too. I’ll guess you’ll see when I post one!

I’ve been reading some Manga’s I’ve been reading, so you’ll see reviews on them soon, and I may do reviews on anime tv shows too. Even a manga Vs. Anime kind of thing.

I’m new to manga’s, so if you have favourites you should totally talk to me about them.

We’re getting off track. *Ahem*

For the most part, they will be spoiler free, but there may be the occasional discussion post so I can rant talk about things. I’ll always label with it’s spoiler free or contains spoilers.

You can still check out my previous reviews in the read section, either by Author or by genre.

There’s my to read section up too for 2017 which I’ll constantly be adding too.

I’m excited to get back to it. I’ve missed chatting about books and the like!

 

 

Oink! My life with mini pigs by Matt Whyman book review

Note: This review is spoiler free!

10642541

The hilarious tale of how two minipigs took over one family’s life.

1. IT

If there’s one kind of non-fiction I love, it’s animal focused stories. I devour them. It’s usually a cat or a dog’s stories, so when I spotted when about mini pigs, well…I had to get it then.

It looked like a fun, enjoyable read as sometimes animal stories feature the abuse most of them suffered before coming to their owners, (most often the authors), lives.

1. writing

It was written that it felt like I was reading a story. In first person and the events ran smoothly. You can tell that writing is the Matt Whyman’s day job, (besides when he’s looking after mini pigs).There’s a light-hearted, humorous tone throughout.

1. Plot

The ‘plot’, (because I suppose real life is one drawn out plot), felt complete. I found some things a little too convenient, as if bits had been embellished for the sake of the book, but, maybe they did happen in just that way, who knows? But I’m thinking the writer took a little poetic licence on some of the tiny details.

1. char

The Whyman family is like every family out there. The father often opens his mouth before he thinks and gets in trouble with the wife and ends up looking after the pets he didn’t want in the first place. The kids are loud and whiny and I’m sure we were all like that at one stage. I know I was.

And, of course, there was Tom. Ladies and gents, if you read this, you’re going to love him.

1. ot

I enjoyed it. It was a good, entertaining read for when I wanted a break from fiction. I have also learnt that I never want mini pigs for a pet. I’d like some chickens though…but the cats would eat them. 😦

Was it worth the read? Yes

Would I re-read? Yes

Would I read this Author again? Yes
