WWW Wednesday (#4)

Hey everyone! I haven’t post much lately and I missed Top Ten Tuesday’s. I’m not going to make any excuses though so let’s get to it. If you’re unfamiliar with WWW Wednesday here’s the rundown. WWW Wednesday is a weekly event currently run by where you answer three fairly simple questions:

What did you recently finish reading?

What are you currently reading?

What do you want to read next?


What did you recently finish reading?

Nothing! This is pretty sad but I haven’t been reading as much as I usually do.

Back To The Future Day!

Hi everyone! Today is October 21st, 2015, the day that Marty McFly traveled to in Back to The Future II.

image image

The funny thing is that pretty much nothing has happened now that has happened in BTTFII. There are hover boards that don’t float continuously and flying cars cease to exist.

What are your thoughts about the movie v.s. the reality of 2015? Comment below!

Ten Wishes I Would Ask My Book Genie.

Hi everyone! It’s Tuesday and that means Top Ten Tuesday’s. Top Ten Tuesday’s is run by the wonderful people at The Broke and the Bookish. It’s a weekly event that happens on their blog. They give you a top ten list prompt and you fill in the blanks. It’s simple but fun! This week’s prompt is 10 Wishes you would ask your book genie.

 Wishes I would Ask My Book Genie:

  1. To let me meet any author I want 😀

Of course this is at the top of my list. Everyone wants to meet the author(s) that have changed your life. I’m not any  different. 🙂

2. Any 5 books I want the most!

This is another no brainier. At least one book I would ask for is.. Probably the 3rd book of the Divergent series. I’m not too sure though.

3. A Interview with any given author.

This would be amazing for my blog and for my life overall. Can you imagine meeting and asking questions to authors like J.K. Rowling and John Green?!

image

4. A library full of all of my favorite authors.

This would be so amazing (So many Fangirl moments!!) I can’t imagine having endless books to read and of course review.

image

5. Writing Advice from famous authors.

I’m going to be writing my first novel during NaNoWriMo and I could definitely use some professional advice 😉 Trust me this does have to do with books.

6. To be able to meet my fellow book bloggers 🙂

That would be so amazing! I would love to meet all you amazing bloggers who have inspired, supported, and entertained me in so many ways.

7.  To get a gift card or two for a bookstore!

Books can get expensive so some gift cards would definitely help me out!

8. To meet Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Dumbledore.

I am almost to the 3rd book in the series and I absolutely love these three! I would love to be able to meet them or at least the actors/actresses for the movie.

That’s all! Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday’s!

School Day Blues

Hi everyone! Since today is Sunday, I decided to do a School Day Blues poem. This poem was written last school year. The only thing that was changed was my name.

School Week Blues
By Makayla the Bookworm

I got the School Week Blues
Monday is just around the corner
I got the School Week Blues
Monday is leaving me some clues

It’s sayin’ you better watch out
You’re going to find out what I’m talkin’ about!
Quizzes at the end
You better hope your grades don’t go around the bend
School Week Blues

Yawn Yawn Yawn is all I do
Everybody knows that’s nothing new
I just want to scream
Someone better beam me to Mars
I just can’t take this School Week Blues!
The stress is eating at my brain
All I hear is this is easy
My brain protests as yet another math problem hits me like an asteroid
I try to fight the urge but it overtakes me
My pencil hits the desk with a click

The clock ticks like a bomb.
Deciding whether to go fast or slow
All I’m doing is counting the minutes, hours, and days till the weekend
My oasis just seems to be in the middle of the desert
The rest of the week is the sand
My throat is thirsty for those day where I can relax
Sleep
School Day Blues!
I feel so lonely in the middle of all those problems, tests, quizzes, and assignments.
Monday means waking up as sleepy as anything
Tuesday is better but the procrastination really starts
Wednesday means middle of the week and a step closer to freedom
Thursday means face palms and begging the world to stop stalling
Friday’s TGIF and celebration
Saturday means sleeping in and not doing any homework
Sunday is the dread of facing that brand new week and struggling to do homework
The week is a whirlwind of “why do I have to be here and get me on that summer plane ’cause this world needs to get a reality check!”

I dread that ring that signals the beginning of class
The endless crowd of teenagers sweeps me like a broom
Nobody knows what’s in store
Middle School comes with drama and stress
Not the best
Must I confess that this world has given me a slap in the face more than my share?
Let me out of this room.
School Day Blues
You better watch out!

Thanks for reading and let me know what you think!

~I Love~

Hi everyone! I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting much. I hope you’ve been having a great weekend so far. I’ve decided to do another original poem. This one is called “I Love” and it was written last school year. All that has been changed is my  name.

I Love
By Makayla the Bookworm

I love summertime
The water balloons flying through the air
Flip flops flapping against the ground
Watermelon juice flying through the air
My mom telling us we’re going to the beach
Hooray is all we say
I love the way the waves calm me and I start to slip away
Summer vacation
No more homework
No more drama
Just sun, sand, and family
Fourth of July
Burgers and Hotdogs
Ice cold lemonade
Bees are buzzing
Red, White and Blue flags a waving
Kites are waving in the breeze
Air mattresses floating in the water
One flips over and laughter erupts
Sunglasses can be seen.
Reflecting the sun’s brilliant gleam
Popsicles melting in the warmth
Root Beer floats fizzing happily
Ouch! My skin turns to a stop sign shade
Red hair has its pros and cons
Sunburns are the worst
My skin seems to burn to a crisp
Better apply that sunscreen!
Summertime
So relaxing
I love the way it makes me feel
Free like a bird
Summertime

Let me know what you think and Thanks for reading 🙂
