Around the World in 7 Books #booktubeathon2016

One last video challenge for booktubeathon … a day late. This is a list of book recommendations based on the seven continents of the world. I tried to get to some places that a lot of books aren’t set, but some of these were also really challenging! I ask you guys for some help in some areas as well, so don’t hesitate to leave me some comments with your own suggestions!

Book Title Dialogue #booktubeathon2016

Listen guys. I’m just really committed to making a fool of myself, okay? I played dress up for this one, even. The third challenge was the create a dialogue using book titles and I think I did pretty well for myself. As it turns out, reading a lot of fantasy means it’s pretty easy to put together a dialogue that makes sense if you’re willing to dress up in an old prom dress and put on a camo hat and have a conversation with yourself because you know no one in your family will go anywhere near this idea.

Book Location Recreation #booktubeathon2016

Welcome to challenge #2 for this years Booktubeathon! I really should have posted this yesterday but I forgot because I got it up really late. ANYWAYS! This is me trying to recreate the polar bear castle from The Golden Compass and basically it’s the worst thing in the world but at a certain point I just committed to making a fool out of myself. Now you get to “enjoy.” Have at it!

June 28th – The Last Day

June 28th was the last full day of my trip in California, so obviously I was feeling a little sad. Also, hence the name of the poem. All the same, I tried to end it on a positive note because–of course–my trip was extremely positive!

The Last Day

It’s the last day
I don’t understand
Where the time went
Or when the trip changed
From just beginning to nearly over
And we went from awkward
To comfortable

It’s the last day
Tomorrow I’ll be on an airplane
For endless hours
Each moment taking me
Away from you
And back to the monotony
Of home

It’s the last day
Now, instead of hopes and wishes,
I have memories filled
With laughter
And a camera card
Full of smiles
To share
