Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

Sorta, kinda, not exactly tagged by Beatrice, find her post here and the original video here.

I tag anyone who reads this.

I’m bored so let’s do this!
Okay, okay, rules and stuff:

  1. pick 5 books
  2. turn to a random page and find the first character mentioned
  3. apply this character to the things (later I promise)

I just put the things (there must be a better name than ‘things’, I mean there probably is but) in the same order Beatrice used 🙂

Doctor Who in Chronological Order

For some reason, I decided it would be a good idea to sort all the Doctor Who episodes since 2005 into date order. Maybe one day I’ll watch them through in this order.

I’ve put which series each episode belongs to. I’ve put Christmas specials with the series after because they usually come with the boxset for the next series. For the episodes that don’t belong to a series, S* are the specials between 2008 and 2010 (the episodes between series 4 and series 5), and S** are the 2013 specials (between series 7 and series 8)

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

Series: book 2 of The Mistborn Trilogy

Genre: High Fantasy

Pages: 763

Rating: 4.5/5

I’m borrowing the Mistborn Trilogy from my brother I finished the Well of Ascension a few weeks ago, and I’m honesty quite impressed with myself for reading such a long book during term time (I’m not the fastest of readers). I read The Hero of Ages (book 1) in the summer holidays, but I rushed it and I don’t really remember much of what happened. This time I didn’t rush it so I enjoyed reading The Well of Ascension so much more than The Hero of Ages.

The story is so gripping and I could never predict what would happen next. I love the magic system and all the different creatures. The plot was so well put together. I do have one bugbear – that Brandon Sanderson used the word ‘gotten’ quite a lot, which I find very annoying (I know, so hard to please).

I’m really excited to continue with the series and find out what happens in The Hero of Ages, but it will have to wait a while as it’s still in my room at uni and I’m not sure I can commit to such a big book during exams.

token photo of the book – the cover’s so purtyy – tadaa!!

Bookshelf Organisation – to rainbow or not to rainbow?

On returning home for the Easter holidays and being reunited with my bookshelf I discovered that my books don’t fit nicely any more. I previously had them sort of tetris-ed into place (sadly I don’t have a photo of this arrangement) and I had acquired more books during term (as you do) so I thought fudge it – lets do rainbow shelves! I had attempted rainbow shelves once before, I they ancient time of 2013, and it looked like this:

523227_477347805660935_1250813863_n

A ghastly cluttered mess if you ask 2016 me! (also, I’m terribly sorry for burning your eyes with the disgusting choice of filter).

Anyway, I decided to omit the black spined books and focus on the more colourful ones. I think the result is pleasant enough but it only lasted 2 days before I couldn’t take it any more. I like art and I like looking at pretty things but rainbow organising isn’t nearly as satisfying alphabetising the books in my opinion.

Needless to say, I then reorganised the books into alphabetic order by authors surname. I also came up with the ingenious (ok it’s not that clever) idea of using the space ontop of my bookshelves. So, err, well now my bookshelves look boring and like this – Huzzah!
