DIY Tested | Creating a Serialized Book

DIY12:17

Hello and welcome to another attempt at me recreating a DIY! This time I am trying to serialize a novel. I first came across this DIY on instagram posted by Sarah on Book50Blog. When I first saw this back in August I was first shocked by the methods used, but she made a really good point. Doing this to a huge, mountainous book into something really manageable.

Now, because this was on Instagram stories, it disappeared in 24 hours, so thankfully I thought it was a great idea and I wanted to try it right there and then. I screen shotted the steps so I could try when the time was right. That time has just now arrived, but before I get into the DIY I want to explain what a serialized novel is.

This was very popular during the victorian era, many books that are now published and full novels were once realized in chunks on a set schedule. This could be once a month, once every two months, or sometimes every other week. It really depending on the magazine or paper that the story was published. Some of the popular books that were originally published in the manner were The Women in White by Wilkie Collins, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Bleak House by Charlies Dickens. I tend to read a lot of classics like this in their original form thanks to a website called Victorian Serial Novels. I suggest checking them out, it really give you a whole new reading experience, you get cliff hangers in places you wouldn’t even believe.

Now, the book I am testing this out on was partly published like this, but then was turned into a novel part of the way through. You can read all about that here. So I am taking a little bit of liberties with breaking it up for a few reasons. The first being I wanted to try this on a big book and the second was because I had a cheap version of this classic so I would not be horribly upset if it all went wrong.

The book I decided to try this on was War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy because I plan on reading it in 2019. So, here it goes, the doing part of DIY.

Supplies

  • Book
  • Cutting device
  • Washi tape
  • Adult supervision-if you get hurt it is not my responsibility ask a responsible adult to help you cut. Using a knife or cutting device can be dangerous do this at your own risk!

The DIY

First you need to find the sections, I decided to break the book down into 17 sections. Book 1-25 then he first and second epilogue. I think in herLes Misérables by Victor Hugo if I am not mistaken.

This is the part I was most worried about, I really thought I was going to butcher the edges and the entire book would fall apart page by page. But, I have to admit seeing the little bits of the spine actually looks kinda cool… did I just say destroyed book looks cool? Who am I?

The last step I think was the best part of this for a few reasons. The first being it kinda made me less worried about the book just falling apart and it made it look more uniform.

DividerOutcome

This is such a wonderfully straight forward DIY, thank you Sarah! Three steps with not a lot of fluff, it gets right to the point. I think that is why it caught my eye right away.

Overall, I really liked this DIY. It turned out a lot better than I thought it would. I would say I did have to cut the sections two times to really get a clear cut. The first to open up the pages to get to the binding, then the second actually cut the binding. I am really looking forward to reading this now serialized edition of War and Peace in 2019!

I hoped your enjoyed me testing out a DIY.

Book Haul | December 2018

BookHaul12:17

So, the last month of the year between buying myself goodies and others being so wonderful and gifting my books has led to me having the largest haul since bookcon in June of this year. So, it is safe to say I will be doing a lot of reading in the new future. I don’t want to ramble on because I have quite a few books here, but I will say some I have been wanting a while and a few were gems I just happen to learn about fairly recently and felt like I needed to have them.

Gifts

Brining Down the Colonel by Patrica Miller

Bringing Down the Colonel: A Sex Scandal of the Gilded Age, and the "powerless" Woman Who Took on Washington

This book was a huge surprise! I got it from one of my friends as an early present and I have to say she picked a great one. This book follows the events that were considered scandalous at the time. A young women was accusing a Colonel of sexual assault. This book talks about how it was received and what happened. I am really curious to see the social ramifications at the time since it seems to mirror a lot of what we see today.

The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sit Arthur Conan Doyle

The Complete Sherlock Holmes

I absolutely love Sherlock Holmes and I had the complete collection in a collection of ripped paperbacks. Well, I am luck to receive this fo-leather bound editions for Christmas. It was a wonderful gift and I am so happy with the upgrade. From what I have seen about this edition it seems to be chronological, but time will tell as I make my way through it.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

The Count of Monte Cristo

This is a book I have been hearing a ton about this year. I think there was a read-along going on on twitter and I know I have been talking to my friend Jenna about reading this in the future. I asked for the book so I would be ready to go, but I did not expect this beautiful edition. It is bright and beautiful, even the sprayed edges are gold and it has a ribbon bookmark. I am going to love reading this.

DividerI Bought

The Far Field by Madhuri Vijay

The Far Field

This was my December Book of the Month pick, I am really curious to see how this book plays out. I did not really look at the description before picking up the book apart from it being set in Asia. I want to read more books from around the world in the upcoming year so I thought this would be a wonderful way to start the journey.

Stalin’s Daughter by Rosemary Sullivan

Stalin's Daughter: The Extraordinary and Tumultuous Life of Svetlana Alliluyeva

This is a non-fiction novel I have been hearing a ton about in the last few months. While I was in school I studied the Russian Revolution among a few other topics and when I heard such good things about this I thought I would expand my own edition by learning about the family of one of the most notorious Soviet Russian leaders. You always hear about the person or the people living under their reign, but to learn about their daughter, that is something new to me. So, I am very excited to jump into this book.

The Overstory by Richard Powers

The Overstory

This was a book I knew I needed to get since I am doing a bit of a challenge in the new year, Reading Goals |Reading a Shortlist. This was the first book on the list I came across in the wild to I scooped it up to take home with me. I have heard some wonderful things from those I trust when it comes to book reviews so I think I will end up very impressed.

Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies by Scarlett Curtis

Feminists Don't Wear Pink and Other Lies: Amazing Women on What the F-Word Means to Them

I  originally saw this book in a post by Amy, where she explored her favorite bookshop and I felt like I needed to have it. I ended up putting in an order for it and then I actually picked it up on the way to my friends wedding. Let’s just say, they know my love of books and would have understand if I was a few moments late. lol. I really like that this explores the meaning of the word feminism and how this word means so many different things to each person.

Milkman: A Novel by Anna Burns

Milkman

So, this was another book from my Reading Goals | Reading a Shortlist list and I saw it when I ran into the store to pick up the previous book. Since it was on sale I grabbed it without thinking about it and added it to my order. I am so exited to now have two books on the list to start off the year. I feel like this is going to be a very atmospheric book and I hope I am correct.

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

House of Leaves

4stars

I cannot believe I have finished this book! I was totally thinking this read would follow me into 2019, but I pulled a late night because this book serious hooked me. I totally understand why this is considered a favorite by many. I may or may not have read the last 300 pages in one sitting. This is a very interesting horror book that is is more creepy than outright scary. It seems like it is more a mind game than anything else. I really enjoyed how this unorthodox book was put together and how it was more than one story. It was refreshing to read something so different. I will mention I tried to read this when I was in middle school, when it first came out. I am glad I never finished it then, because I know I would not have appreciated it as much. There are layers and layers and you need to dissect this book a little bit.

Bullet Journal | December 2018

Recs

Last month I sadly did not get around to sharing my bullet journal, but I am excited to get to share this months with you. I am using some of my tried and true spreads as well as trying a few new ones as well.

This month I wanted simple layouts, apart from the bonus one below, and limit my colors to pale relaxing colors. I am not sure why, but I was really craving cool tones.

Here is my main introduction page into December. I thought it would be fun to do a warm fire place because during the month of December that is the only place I want to sit, right in front of it. I also wanted to put a few simple decorations. I never go all out with decoration in real life so why would I in my bullet journal?

This is my calendar page. This is where I write all the appointments, meetings, and due dates for various things. When I took this picture it was blank, it is already totally filled. It is funny how things come flying at you all at once. I loved the little lights so I added them to the side of the page. I didn’t color them in because I wanted the purple to be the star of this page. It is such a relaxing color.

So on the left hand side is my Monthly Overview, this is where I write down all my planned posts. I am happy to say that I have some fun posts coming up this month that I am excited to share with you. Mainly my favorite and least favorite books of 2018. I cannot believe it is already time to reflect on the year.

On the right side of the page is my December TBR. It may be a bit of a sneak peak, but oh well.

This is the layout I am going to be giving a try. I kinda got inspiration from BooksandLala on Youtube for this. On the right side I am going to assign a book a color and track the days I have read it on the left hand side. If all goes to plan there should be a fun cool toned rainbow on the left hand side to show when I started, read, and finished a book using the colors and code on the right side. I am curious to see if I keep up with this or not. Only time will tell.

This is my typical tracking pages I put in my bullet journal every month. The right page is where I write the titles of the books I read and then color them in. On the right I color in a block for each chapter I read. At this time I only added the books on my TBR, more will be added because I never stick to my TBR.

I am not sure if I have shared this before, but this is the weekly spread I use. While I give a majority of the room to my weekdays. I don’t combine Saturday and Sunday because then I end up waiting to do everything on Sunday. As you can see I also have a few stickers. I track the moon cycles in my bullet journal because I always love being aware of the moon and its cycles. I always have since I was a little girl. I also have assigned days to clean, write, and do laundry which are indicated by sticks. I also do a weekly weigh in that I keep track of in my bullet journal as well.

I hoped you have enjoyed the sneak peak into my bullet journal this month. I really enjoyed how this month turned out. It is clean and calm, just what I need and wanted.

Tag Time | My Bad Reading Habits

TagTimel12:17

Bonus post! I was tagged today by  the wonderful Whitney over at Whit Reads Lit. and I needed to do it today. It is such a fun idea for a tag. Anyway, Whitney is a lovely person and you should check out her blog. She is always writing something fun to read.

Like Whit said in her post, “If you enjoy reading, you likely have some reading habits that you are embarrassed by or ashamed of”. So here we are, reading about my bad reading habits that I don’t always share with everyone, but I often do.

Bad Habit #1: Rarely finishing series

I am horrible when it comes to series, I love the idea of them. Spending so much time with characters and a world you love. The bad part for me comes when I put off reading the next one because I feel guilty about not reading the other books I already own instead of going out to buy the next book in the series. It has gotten so bad that I actively look for stand alones, if I find out a book I a part of a series, even if it sounds amazing, I won’t pick it up. So I think I kind of miss out.

Bad Habit #2: Impulse buying an authors books if I find them on discount and I enjoyed one of their books.

When it comes to finding new favorite authors, I get really excited. So excited if I read a single book by an author and love it, I will then be on the lookout to buy EVERYTHING they have written at a discount shop or on bookoutlet. I won’t even be interested in the description, but in the past few months I have gotten better with this.

Bad Habit #3:I don’t always stick to my buy 5, read 1

While I have been buying a lot less books this year with my buy 5, read 1 challenge. I do end up not following it from time to time. This could be because I go to a book sale or a friend invites me to go shopping with them. I am not going to say no to hanging out with friends and books. Perfect combination.

Bad Habit #4: Sometimes if I don’t like a book after 5 pages I will DNF it without giving it a “good” chance.

I am very brutal when it comes to DNFing. If I am bored early in the book I put it down for good. While I have never regretted doing this. I do wonder from time to time if I missed out. But, then I remember that the writing style annoyed me or the characters already annoyed me only that far in and chances are it would have continued.

Bad Habit #5: I feel like I could read more broadly than I do.

At times I feel like I read the same type of book too often, so I would love to read more outside of the circle I currently do, or at least type.

Bad Habit #6: If I am bored I will skip sections in a book.

I will admit it, I will skip sections of books from time to time. It could be because I don’t care about that event or I don’t like the characters so I want nothing to do with them. Do I miss things from time to time? Yes. Do I care? No, not really.

Let’s Talk | Book Breeze App Review

LetsTalk12:17

So a few weeks ago you will notice that I started using the app the bookish app Book Breeze created by Zendo Mobile. As far as I am aware this app is only available on the App Store, hopefully this will change in the future. This app is a reading tracker that focuses on collecting data regarding your reading speed, how many hours you spend reading, and how many pages you read. Now the version I am going to be talking about is the paid version of the app. While the free version has everything BUT the speed data and the ability to read more than one book. So a lot of the things I talk about will still be relevant to those using the free version.

Image result for book breeze

What I Liked

So, Book Breeze has a lot going for it as a reading tracker. It is easy to snap a picture of the book you are reading and manually add author, title, and numbers of pages. It also allows you to add a book even if you are in the middle by adding what page you are on. This process is straight forward and you don’t need to add any other information to get to using the app.

Starting a new reading session is easy, you go right to your books pages and click on the cover of the book you want to continue, then click “continue reading”. As soon as you start reading it will start the stopwatch of sorts and record you time until you click stop or pause. I love the fast that you can pause your reading instead of needed to hit stop every time you need to get up real fast for one reason or another. Another great thing is that if you forget to start your session you can add a session by adding the numbers of pages you read and how long you were reading at any point. Sometimes I still forget, but it is easy to fix with the way they set this up.

The last thing I thing they do wonderful is having a straight forward and interface that is not overwhelming. It is easy to navigate and new users I feel will be pros fairly quickly. The graphs and data that is shown is not complex and are very usable then it comes to actually looking at the data. Some apps I have come across make things more complicated then they need to be, Book Breeze does it right.

What I Didn’t Like

You cannot DNF a book without loosing all the data for the book or is stays on your current list forever. I am someone who often DNFs books because I don’t like to force myself to read something I am not enjoying. One thing I think they need to add to this app is either the ability to DNF a book or add a tab to the book category that would remove the book from Current, but allow you to keep pages read data.

Another thing I do not like is the fact that under stats you can only see 2 weeks, 1 month, 1 year, and 10 years. While we do have This week under the reading tab, if you do not take a screen shot to write down what you read this past week on Saturday night you will now have to do some math to figure out what you read in a single week. While it is not a lot of hard work, it is something that I think could be improved upon.

Overall Thoughts

Overall, I think this is a wonderful app and if you are on the market to find an app to track your reading habits or get more insight into your reading pattern it is worth giving a shot. While it does have its faults in my eyes, I am still going to use the app and hopefully they will make some great updates in the future.

DIY Tested| Hollowed Out Book

DIY12:17

So, I have seen this around the internet for some time and I thought testing some DIYs would be really fun. I have always loved crafting and making stuff with my own hands so I thought to myself, “why not?” I will only be making ones I really an interested in and not just doing DIYs for the sake of doing them though. So I am starting off with one I have been wanting to do for some time.

Since I was young I wanted to have a box made out of a book. I don’t know why, but I always thought it was the coolest thing. Over the years I have seen them in the store, but they always looked so fake and I never really liked what the outside looked like. So, many years later I am finally deciding to make my own.

Here is the DIY video I am following/testing:

Supplies

  • Hardback book, at least 1½” thick
  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Craft paintbrush
  • Craft knife
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

DividerOutcome

Overall this video really helped me a lot. It is very straight forward and simple. One thing I think I would change about this DIY is that if you have a larger book I would separate it into sections like I ended up doing. That way if you don’t have a very long or large craft knife you wont run into so many problems in the corner and the opening stays the same size instead of developing an angle.

DividerI hoped your enjoyed me testing out a DIY.

Which ones should I try next?

Prompt:

Monday 22nd: The Sacrifice
Which characters or creatures would die first if they were in a horror movie?

Amy from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Image result for young Amy alcott limes

While I adore Amy when she is an adult, as a child she is quite annoying and does not always listen to the rules. I feel like she would be sneaky and do something that she thinks would help her and then back fire pretty quickly. As you can see from this meme of the Little Women, this is a very famous quote of hers when she is younger, it kinda proves my point.

Cath from Fan Girl by Rainbow Rowell

Image result for Cath from Fan Girl writing
Check out the awesome illustrator Susanne!

 

While I love Cath and relate to her a lot, I feel like her head might be plotting her fan-fiction while she should be on watch. This would lead her to be distracted and then end up being her downfall sadly. You can see in this awesome illustration by Susanne she is so engrossed in her fan-fiction and not thinking about anything else.

Amelia Bedelia from the Amelia Bedelia series

by Peggy Parish

Image result for amelia bedelia

While Amelia Bedelia is a very loved childhood staple that I can relate to, chances are she would be given instructions and would misunderstand by taking a phrase to literally and then end up in a not so good situation. As you can see by her image, she is a very happy and kind lady, I hope I am wrong about this one.

#Blogoween | Trick of Treat!

Blogoween

Prompt: Wednesday 3rd: Trick of Treat!
Woo, you get to go Trick or Treating! Choose who and/or where you would love to go trick or treating.

While I find this prompt to be really fun and festive, I don’t know why I had such a hard time thinking of who and where I would go trick of treating with. I would have to say the where was the really difficult part for a few reasons, but I will go more into that later.

If I could go trick or treating with anyone I think I would have to go with Fred and George Weasley. They are fun, and lets be honest, their tricks would be amazing! I think it would be fun following them around and seeing the fun they would have hiding behind some really awesome costumes and a few original tricks to try out on muggles.

Image result for fred and george

Now, you may have noticed I said trying these tricks out on muggles, that is because I don’t think there is any trick or treating going on in the wizarding world, but maybe I am wrong? But, if there does happen to be trick or treating in the wizarding world I would have to pick Godrics Hallow.

Image result for Godric’s Hollow

The reason I ended up picking this location was for a few reasons. The significance of the location to the books is founded. Not only did Harry Potter first meet Voldmort here, but also those scenes of Harry at the graveyard was so emotional. But, apart from it being a significant place I also think it would be a great place to get into the spirit. There are a bunch of homes owned by witches and wizards, there is a large cemetery, and if the movies are anything to go off of, it is a beautiful town.

5: What position would you play in Quidditch?

I would be in the position of sitting in the stands, I am not athletic in any shape, way, or form.

6: Would you be a pure blood, half blood, or muggle born?

I have no idea, I mean any of these options would work for me because in any situation I would be a witch.

7: What job would you want to have after graduating Hogwarts?

Potions Master, I always loved mixing and making things. The bonus is that it can help others too.

8: Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?

I would pick the Invisibility Cloak, I feel like the others would be more detrimental to my wellbeing.

9: Favorite book?

I loved the Half-Blood Prince, I think because that is when things get very serious.

10: Least favorite book?

I never really was a fan of The Chamber of Secrets.

11: Favorite film?

The Prisoner of Azkaban I think was the best for me. I felt like the magic was very noticeable in this movie more so than previous ones.

12: Least favorite film?

The Chamber of Secrets, I really did not like this book/movie.

13: Favorite character?

I think overall Lupin is my favorite character even though we don’t meet him until a few books in.

14: Least favorite/most hated character?

Professor Umbridge, she is a monster.

15: Favorite teacher at Hogwarts?

Teddy Lupin of course!

16: Least favorite teacher at Hogwarts?

Professor Quarrel, letting that troll into the school was just not cool.

17: Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?

I don’t think I do?

18: If you could save one character from the finale battle who would you save?

HOW CAN YOU EXPECT ME TO ANSWER A QUESTION LIKE THIS?! I WANT TO SAVE EVERYONE! If I did HAVE to pick I would pick Fred, I always felt so sad for George losing his twin.
