Inspired By Random: Book Titles

Announcement: 'Inspired By Random'

Hey All!

Hot Coco :)
I've been thinking thinking about blog posts and looking for inspiration on what to write about, and although I have a list of posts that I'm going to do (I have a list but I'm still looking for more!!!) I've still been umming and ahhing.

Anyway, I've been spending a lot of time drinking hot chocolate to get my inspiration senses heightened with no luck till now; I've had an epiphany. That's right people, the light bulb went 'ping' as I walked past a shelf at work. Here goes:

I will be writing five posts using the title of random books as the title for my posts. Care to join anyone? If you'd like to take part - you are more than welcome to - just let me know so we can all tweet/link our posts together :)

Now when I tried to explain this idea to a few friends they were slightly confused. To clear this up once and for all, this is not a book review, I repeat, NOT a book review. You don't have to have read the book before, it's just a way of encouraging us to write more by using random titles for inspiration. - Does that make sense? We use titles of books to make our own posts. :) Time for a few rules I think!

Ground Rules:
  • These posts in no way need to relate to the books you decide to use - maybe make that clear so readers don't get confused and mistake it for a book review.
  • Put a link to the book somewhere in the post so readers can explore the book if they wish. 
  • You can use the same title as me if you like or select your own random book title - see how you feel :). At the end of each post I'll be writing the title for the next week if you'd like to do the same one. 
  • I will be posting weekly but no pressure,  you can do as little or many posts as you like.
  • Don't feel obliged to write all five posts but if you can that's great! 
  • Link your blog using the link button below so others can read it. 
  • Have fun!!
  • And finally, share, share, share!! :) 
The book title I'll be using from the 3rd of April:

Stay connected. :P

And just like that, 'ping ', an idea. Goes to show that inspiration really can come from anywhere.

Current Reads


So this is my 'current reads' post becasue well, I like to read!!

I found this super amazing online magazine which is actually really good. You may have already heard of it but here it is: The Debrief. I found this through facebook and just love browsing their articles - the range of articles is mahoosive, fashion, life, advice and so on!

There are a few books I'm reading at the moment and here are three:

The 100 by Kass Morgan

This book has been made into a tv series and I found it at work and thought hmmmm.... Let me try this! It's about teenagers being sent to earth after a nuclear war and so far so good!

Agatha Rasin By M. C.Beaton

I love Agatha Rasin! There, I said it. People's reaction to when I say I'm currently reading the series is ' how old are you?!'. But its never too early or too late to start reading and because I actually enjoy this series, who can complain! It's about Agatha who recently moved to the country and becomes a detective :). You'll have to try them yourself!

Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich - so I'm actually re reading this series because it's hilarious!! Seriously funny! It's light crime with some very interesting characters and really good story lines. Smiles every time I read these books. 😄

And lastly I've also been reading some articles for reaserch!! So much information to take in and process 😞 but it will be worth it in the end! 😄

What have you been reading recently?

Reflections Of This Week

This week, I learnt a number if things:
  • Some people will never change; they'll ask for a lift 'now' and still make you wait outside for them! When someone says 'now' it does mean 'right now' doesn't it? Then why do you come out 15 minutes later - say in 15 minutes then!
  • I'm apparently easy to please and too accepting.
  • Accepting that I'm apparently too accepting and easy to please actually means I am accepting, does that make sense? Therefore I will continue to be myself just the way I am. Truth is that at that moment in time, I may come across as accepting and easy to please, but mostly it's because I can't be bothered to argue, make a big deal out of small things, or I literally don't care enough. Sorry people. 
  • There is a place in Japan where there are loads and loads and loads of cats, that's right, you read correctly, cats.

  • I have an amazing group of very supportive, inspiring and seriously lovely friends. Thank you friends. 
  • For most part of my life, I've been number two - this is sad but true. Lately however, I've come to realise that I don't want to be number one in someone else's life, I want to be number one in my own life. :)  
  • How can you know what you are missing if you haven't tried it?
  • And finally, 'I'm sorry' and 'it's okay' are two phrases we should say and mean more often. 
How's your week been? Share in the comments below :)
