Books Galore LAY #7

It’s Blond, James Blond, and today in Life and You I will be talking about books. And later I will be answering a question about Television from new author Stacy.

I personally love books, just glancing around my room I can see all the books I have read, and they bring back fond memories.

But I have a confession

Forgive me book gods (American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Anyone. Anyone?) for I have sinned. Lately I have not been reading books. I have been caught up in YouTube, Pokemon Go, even chess. But I have been neglecting my one true love.. books.

To give some context we need to hop in the Mario TARDISwp-1486696073527.jpg

and fly back to 2013.

In 2013 I was a young boy, frolicking in the fields of my family home, folding origami with Riley, and most of all reading. Let me see. I read…

The Series of Unfortunate Events, several Harry Potter books, The Mysterious Benedict Society Series, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, 6 books of the Artemis Fowl series, The Secret Series, the Percy Jackson series and the Heroes of Olympus Series, Don Quixote abridged, Little Women (I crie everytime), When You Reach Me, At Least 3/4 of all Hardy Boys books every written (including the horrible Nancy Drew crossover), *deep breath*, The Giver, The Kid From Tomkinsville, Frindle, The Bridge to Terabithia, and The Silver Crown. And those are just the books I have.

Yeah, I read a lot. It may have been due to the fact that I was grounded for much of that school year and my forms of entertainment were read and fold origami, but I loved it.

But now, I am always on my phone, and the last books I read were The Gallery (a fantastic book) and Jane Eyre for school.

I have been thinking about this for a while, and it is time for me to change my wicked ways. I will be reading a lot more often. I vow at least 2 books a month (unless they are really long) and I will review those books when I finish so you guys can check those out.

And my question for you guys comes in three parts. One, have you ready any of the books I mentioned? Two, what books have you read recently? And Third (Thirdly, thrice?), what book would you recommend I read. My current book for March is Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book 1. It is a continuation of the Percy Jackson universe and I am really excited.

And Stacy asked me

whats your favorite tv show

My favorite TV show is definitely the West Wing. I talk about it a lot so please please please watch it on Netflix. Then reference it in the comments and I will feature a West Wing fan every post (if we get that many).

So yeah, that wraps up the post.

Write your questions in the comments and if its good I will answer it in a future LAY. And answer my questions in the comments.

Be sure to check out this link to watch the insane paintball tournament Riley and Victoria and Stacy and I participated in thanks to our sponsorship by Microsoft. Huge shout out to them, they do such amazing work.

Goodbye everyone, and as I always like to say:

The Paintball Tournament is like Rick and Morty

  2. Hah, I knew better not to click on that link xD
    I had an odd flashback of when I read The Bridge To Terabithia when I was in (I don’t remember…1st or 2nd grade), and I got in trouble because I was showing my friends a bad word that was in the book 😀
