Around The World In YA Books Tag

Thank you Cátia for tagging me and sorry that it took me like a year to do this. If you haven’t yet, check out her blog!

The Rules

List a country, and then show which favourite book of yours is set in that country. You can use the countries I have used, add your own, or use completely different ones!

FRANCE

How can I not go with Anna and the French Kiss? Speaking of which, it’s time for a reread… Though of course I could also go with Scarlet, another favourite, though I feel more like I’m in France while reading Anna then while reading Scarlet.

CANADA

I recently read Anne of Green Gables, and while I didn’t think I would like it at first since the beginning was pretty slow, I fell in love.

CHINA

Like Cátia, I’m going with Cinder. Sadly I haven’t read that many books set in China (if any besides Cinder? My memory is terrible), but this one is also one of my favourites of course.

THE UK

I could be original and not go with Harry Potter, but where’s the fun in that?

JAPAN

Harriet goes to Japan in Model Misfit and it’s GLORIOUS. I love Japan and it really felt like I was there with Harriet. I love Harriet, her story and the supporting characters by themselves, but in Japan? Sign me up

Okay so I won’t tag anyone specific again, so if you want to do this, feel free to do so! What is a country you want more YA books set in? Let me know in the comments!

The Weekly Hufflepuff #24

*insert awkward introduction* *insert usual ‘I can’t believe February is almost over already!’* Siriusly I have no idea what to write here this time

whatiread

I finished my reread of The Perks of Being A Wallflower and was even more emotional this time.

I started rereading Cinder. I guess I’m in a reread mood haha. I just looked at my bookshelves and Cinder basically spoke to me: ‘REREAD ME REREAD ME’

personal

While I still managed to have three posts up last week, this week was less successful sadly. I was very busy with school, not to mention tired, so while I could’ve made time, I just didn’t want to blog. I was too tired and didn’t want to force myself. I’m still behind on reading blogposts, but I did read quite a few on Friday during class! (I wasn’t slacking off, I promise. My task was done so I had a lot of free time)

I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but this term we’re making radio. I hate the sound of my own voice so I’m struggling with that haha. Last week we had to make our own items and went to the studio to practice with an already made script. This week we made our very own script and used our own items, which was fun but I was quickly done with my task so I felt like I was sitting there for nothing. It was pretty cool listening to our own broadcast though.

Today I went to the Neighbour Food Market to write a report on it for school. It was just a lucky bonus that I got to eat haha. We will definitely go there again (it’s once every month) because there was so much food that I didn’t get to try! I mean, I could try it because so far everyone we met gave us a sample of something, but my stomach. I’m actually sitting here with a hot water bottle. I ate too much

what I posted-2

I reviewed this week’s episode of Shadowhunters. Hopefully I’ll post more next week

elsewhere

So how was your week? Did you eat any good food? Read any good books? Let me know in the comments!
