Upcoming Superhero Movies and How To Prepare For Them (Chapter 1)

Hello wonderful people!

     I hope everyone is having a magnificent day and that life is smiling at you (better not be a devious smile). Maybe a little bit of Bookidote will do some good! As you might have realized, superheroes are dominating television and cinemas! Any comic book fan would be thoroughly thrilled for all the exciting movies that are thrown at them. Even the non-comic readers can find pleasure in seeing all these wonderful movies hit the big screen and spread like wildfire on television! I mean, anything EPIC is always WELCOME, right? 😀 Continue reading

A Bookidote Discussion – What Do You Think About Speed-Reading?

Hello lovely bookworms! 😛

     Let’s not kid ourselves here. We all wished to be able to read a lot faster. With a TBR that grows at an exponential rate while our currently reading book is taking a decade to go through, it’s no surprise that we’ve contemplated the idea of having super speed-reading powers.

eyes-1

I’ve always personally seen myself as an incredibly slow reader. I’ve never been able to finish a 200 page novel in a single sitting or even in a day, but life has put in front of me people who are able to go through a 1000 pages in a blink of an eye. Young, I strongly avoided comparing my reading speed to anyone and everyone. Instead of having a high reading speed, I’d use more of my time per day to go through more chapters than another, faster, reader would. You see my compensating strategy there? Continue reading

Pokémon GO Book Tag

pokemon-go-book-tag

Yo yo yo,

The addiction is real. The chaos followed. The fun continues. Pokémon Go is the fuzz and hasn’t stopped many people from going after Pokémon’s at every corner of their hood. People started using this as an incentive to jog, others made it a daily gang meet-up at the peek of the moon to lure Pokémon’s and dominate gyms. If anything, this augmented reality game has done great improvements and damage to our society! But, skipping the opportunity to do a Pokémon GO Book Tag? Not on our watch! Continue reading

What Type of Reader Are You?- A Bookidote Discussion

Hello lovely readers!

You know what’s amazing about bookworms? We all have a particular style (and sometimes more than one), yet we love each with all our hearts! 😀 It’s somewhat mind-boggling the different type of readers that roam around the world, and laying out a list of some of them, from the top of our heads, made this entry one of the biggest revelation of mankind; all right, maybe it’s not that big of a deal.

There’s still so many different readers out there, and so we’ve come up with a fun little list to share with everyone! It might not be thorough list out there, but that’s where you come in and share with us what you think you are!

Let’s jump right into this! 😀 

Each type of reader we came up with has their own book name haha 😉 Thumbs up if you recognize them!

YALLWEST Chapter 4 : Event Haul

freebies

    We were really stunned by all the goodies you could get (pins, books, patches, bookmarks, books, book chapter previews, posters, pens, totes, books). What was even more amazing is how excited some of the younger kids were in winning prizes and getting free things of various authors! It can definitely bring a tear to the eye in seeing a young generation appreciating novels in a hedonistic, pleasure-first, society!

day2

Hey guys! 😀

    The final push was on! After coming late and finding out that we’ve missed out on some amazing giveaways that went on a first-come, first-served basis, we HAD to wake up earlier and compromise on this last day of YALLWEST. In fact, the most devastating news—especially for Trang, being a huge fan of this—is the lucky folks who managed to grab a copy of Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. This unreleased sequel to an outstanding novel was given away to some really, really lucky people who managed to get in line first at some of the tents. If this wasn’t a motivation for Trang to wake up early, then I don’t know what was. Continue reading

YALLWEST Chapter 1 : Introduction

Hello lovelies! ❤

Almost a month ago we shared our excitement with all of you guys of our soon-to-happen adventure. It’s with even more hysteria that we’re here to yell that we’re just ONE DAY AWAY FROM THE BIG EVENT!!! HOORAY!! YALLWEST is about to officially open its doors to all the crazed bookworms out there in Santa Monica! There’s nothing more titillating than being able to assist this amazing convention AND visit LOS ANGELES for the FIRST TIME EVER!!! But this wouldn’t an adventure if we didn’t share this with everyone! As part of the YALLWEST 2016 event, we’re going to launch a 5 chapters mini-series right here on our blog giving an assessment of all the formidable things we’ve seen, smelt and heard!

Top Upcoming Books to TV Shows/Movie Adaptations

What’s cooking everybody! ❤

If the Oscars didn’t show this in neon colors, then I will! A lot of books are now becoming more and more the first source of inspiration for directors. Not only are books the perfect place to find a plot that can be translated to the cinematographic world, books deserve to be given a GOOD new vision to an author’s creation. I know, I know. A LOT of TV shows/Movie adaptations really fail miserably and miss by a long mile. But, as an avid cinema fan, I believe cinema can bring a completely immersive experience that books can’t do and wish they could. Although, it does go the other way around to! Movies can’t reach the amount of depth and detail as books can. In fact, there are messages and point of views that sometimes can’t be translated on the big screen. But let’s stop there. This is a topic for another day! Continue reading

Comic Book Guide

comic.png Hello fellow bookworms 😀 ,

Since the creation of Bookidote, I’ve been meaning to create at least one introduction to comic books post so that anyone interested in the medium can plunge into it without having a heart attack. It’s pretty normal to believe you can’t jump into the comic world without making your brain explode. The number of comic issues out there, the variety in stories and the insanely confusing number of series are bound to make any mortal quiver in their pajamas.

When I first attempted to understand the world, I already had prior knowledge that superhero comic books is a hell of a mess to any newcomer. I knew beforehand that what I was about to get into is more complicated than quantum science, but one thing kept me going. Continue reading

The Love Tag

jvjvHello Everyone ! ❤

          What’s a better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than a little love tag, right ? 😀 No. Seriously. It’s the 14th of February already and we all know how it’s that time of the year where roses and heart-shaped chocolate boxes are given out to everyone’s loved ones; when your wallet permits it. As cute as Valentine’s Day is as a concept, its premise is quite blinded by popular culture. Now, now there. Don’t get me wrong. What I want to convey here is that Valentine’s Day shouldn’t just be a day to celebrate your love for your girlfriend/boyfriend. It should be a day to show appreciation to your beloved family—where family encompasses every loved one with whom you share an intimate relationship. In fact, shouldn’t every day be Valentine’s Day in its traditional sens? Don’t you think that we should be showing our love to our girlfriend/boyfriend’s, without restraints, every single second of our lives? All this to say that we are absolutely glad to tell you all that we love you all for all the kind words, precious time spent with us and much appreciated love you’ve all given us through this blogging world. We sincerely hope a great Valentine’s Day to every single one of you and wish to enlighten your day with this quick little post to celebrate this day that honors the greatest gift one person could give to another; love.

We were inspired to create this tag to tell everybody that love is a gift, but so are books. 😀 So here’s The Love Tag. We’re also really curious about what you guys have to say in return.

Feel free to use the graphics (banner, titles,header) !  Continue reading

Home Workspace Tour

Hi y’all 😀

I want to share with you for the new year my new renovated home office, where I stack my books and study for exams. It’s not easy being a student and having so many projects at the same time. But somehow, I love being surrounded by projects. Nothing drives me more than challenges after challenges and I decided to make this year even more productive than last year. I’m starting my psychology bachelor this year and beside that, I have Bookidote, 2 jobs as research assistant, administrator for the obsessive compulsive disorder association and some volunteer projects along the line. As you can guess, organization and time are both precious to me haha. In order to get everything done, I have to know my limits and set realist goals.
