It’s been a while since I hosted a giveaway and as I’ve just passed a blog milestone I felt it was time for another thank you to you guys for sticking with me. I really appreciate the support you guys give me with my reviews and writing and I feel really lucky to have you. You guys are always sending me kind words and contributing to my stuff and I’m really noticing now how thank full I am of you guys as I’ve had so much time away from my blog recently. This time around I have selected 10 of my favourite books from 2013 as it’s been such a wild year for me and these books have all given me something special. I will be giving away one paperback copy to the winner of this competition and an ebook copy to a runner up.
I have chosen these books carefully using a mix of a few different genres to hopefully satisfy every reader. I’m hoping that this list can also be used as a recommendation list for those who do not win, as they are all perfect for general reading. I have chosen 10 books and next to them I have linked both the goodreads page and a link to my review for those of you more interested.
* The winners will be able to choose one book each from those listed above which I will then send them. * As this competition is a thank you for my followers I will only choose you as a winner if you are following me; to go to my blog click here. * The ebook competition is open worldwide to all those with an Ereader and the paperback competition is open to all those living in countries that either The Book Depository or Amazon deliver to. * To enter you can both like and reblog; likes will only qualify for the ebook competition and reblogs will count for both the paperback and the ebook competition. * You can enter as many times as you like; there is no limit per day or in total but try not to annoy people by constantly reblogging. *The competition ends at midnight GMT December 27th and the winners will be contacted in the following 24 hrs. * The winners will have 48 hours to respond before I choose another, they must also have an open ask box as that is how I will contact them. * It is not necessary for the competition but I would be grateful anyone who wants to friend me on goodreads, link here. Or follow my second blog Flipping Fantastic Films because I’m really hoping to kick this blog off on a larger scale as we move into the next year. * If you have any queries leave a message in my ask box and I will respond and update this post with the answers.
Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!
I saw a dog almost like this last weekend and her owner said she was a poodle who’d never been trimmed.
This looks like a sentient mop head with a tongue.
Just one day, the mop head decided fuck all y’all, I’m not cleaning any more floors, and off it bounced to the beach.
it’s baby cousin it
[KICKS DOWN YOUR DOOR]
BACK THE FUCK UP
DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT HERE
THIS IS A GODDAMN KOMONDOR
KOMONDOROK (THAT’S PLURAL KOMONDORS I DON’T EVEN FUCKIN KNOW MAN) ARE LIVESTOCK GUARDIANS. MOTHERFUCKERS KEEP SHEEP SAFE AND SHIT WHILE ALSO BLENDING IN WITH SHEEP WHICH SEEMS GODDAMN ADORABLE UNTIL YOU REALIZE THAT THIS WAS USEFUL SO THEY COULD ATTACK WOLVES AND SHIT AND CATCH THEM BY SURPRISE AND ALSO BECAUSE IT MADE THEM HARD TO BITE WHEN THEY WERE FIGHTING MOTHERFUCKING WOLVES
THIS MEANS AS PETS THEY’RE ALSO SUPER PROTECTIVE AND THEY’LL LOOK OUT FOR YOUR SHIT IF SOMEONE BREAKS INTO YOUR HOUSE. YOUR KOMONDOR WILL KNOCK THAT ASSHOLE DOWN AND KEEP HIM DOWN UNTIL HELP COMES. THEY’RE GREAT AND CALM WITH KIDS AND THEIR OWNERS AND FAMILIES BUT LOSE THEIR FUCKING SHIT IF THEY THINK THEY NEED TO PROTECT YOU. KOMONDOR BREEDERS APPARENTLY SAY THAT AN INTRUDER MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET ONTO YOUR PROPERTY BUT HE SURE AS HELL WON’T BE ABLE TO LEAVE
IN WORLD WAR II THE GERMANS LITERALLY HAD TO BEAT THEM TO DEATH WITH THEIR GUNS WHEN THEY INVADED HUNGARY BECAUSE THE KOMONDOROK WOULDN’T STOP PROTECTING THEIR FAMILIES AND HOMES UNTIL THEY WERE DEAD
SO BASICALLY KOMONDOROK ARE BADASS MOTHERFUCKERS WHO SHOULDN’T BE UNDERESTIMATED EVEN IF THEY LOOK LIKE MOPS BECAUSE THEY’RE THE MOST HARDCORE FUCKING MOPS YOU’VE EVER MET
LOOK AT THAT CUTE LIL FUCKER BOUNCE WHAT A WOOLLY LIL CUTIE CUTE
I have gotten one question repeatedly from young men. These are guys who liked the book, but they are honestly confused. They ask me why Melinda was so upset about being raped.
The first dozen times I heard this, I was horrified. But I heard it over and over again. I realized that many young men are not being taught the impact that sexual assault has on a woman. They are inundated by sexual imagery in the media, and often come to the (incorrect) conclusion that having sex is not a big deal. This, no doubt, is why the number of sexual assaults is so high.
Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak, on the question “Have any readers ever asked questions that shocked you?”
Read that again. Read it again, and again, and again. Over and over guys have asked her why Melinda was so upset about being raped. This is a girl who went to a party with friends. She was thirteen. She had a drink, because everyone else was. And a senior held her down and raped her while she was too drunk to get away.
And guys don’t understand why she was upset.
Read that again and then come back and tell me again why I should just shut up and take a joke when a comedian blows off rape as a big deal, or women’s bodies are casually treated as commodities in media. Remind me why I shouldn’t care about the very real harm that society’s treatment of women and sexual assault does.
I had a dream where every person, at exactly midnight on new years following their 22nd birthday, they possessed the body of their soulmate and people ran around trying to figure out who they were so that they could find eachother, and they left notes for the body’s owner to find with their address. And there were some language gaps so people had to translate it and travel to different countries carrying the notes they were left, and it was great
