I say introduction but basically it’s an excuse to post gifs. Because you all know that I do this best.
The theme for this month is pretty self-explanatory. But here’s a disclaimer, the world is absolutely shi…er..crappy right now so we may be taking days off from talking about romance to just talk about whatever we can but TALK WE WILL. We might even go off topic and I beg your forgiveness if we do because this world has been infested by cretinous excuses for living beings. And #resist we will.
What’s in store for you during this month are books with some…
And also some chances you just have to take and some moves you have to show…
I’m sure you know what I mean…right?
I mean…love stories with spice and colour and life?
And okay, a little bit of jealousy is fine too.
We will attempt to find books that will warm the cockles of your heart even during this time of great upheaval.
First though: The Book Wars wishes all its Readers a wonderful beginning to what we hope will be a good year. Considering the current conditions of the world right now, we feel good is as perky as we are going to get. We are going to be doing our bit with reading and writing bout […]
It was a dark and stormy night. (*has a mini freakout session*) The Book Warriors were scattered far and wide over the vast area that is our beautiful country, (We’re Canadians, just in case you are wondering.), still reeling from the election results of our neighbours. It was a dark time. (Repetition but Janet isn’t […]
So you guys, happy the Day After Halloween also known in some circles as the 1st of November and, here at The Book Wars, as the first day of that month where the book warriors run about trying to finish the book their partners in crime recommended months ago. *looks guilty* So, ahem, this month is when […]
Works of fiction (and otherwise) originally in English are often translated into dozens of other languages depending on the commercial (and sometimes critical) success of the work but unfortunately the same cannot be said for works not originally in English. English is, due to colonialism (past, post, and neo), (or has become) the standard language […]
When I say Australia, what do you think? Apart from spiders, koalas, kangaroos, and that thing they eat like butter? Marmite? Well, I don’t know about you, but when I think Australia, I think freaking good Australian children’s literature. We have already feature many on the blog but to jog your memory, Australian authors include: Jaclyn Moriarty, […]
In case you were like me and continuing blithely along without caring for the passing of time, IT’S MAY. May 1st to be exact. I’ll spare you the whole “time is moving so fast” and “oh my granny’s garters, where’s the year going?!” stuff because it has been (and will be, and is being) said. […]
Today is April 1st. Or is it? Maybe it isn’t. Maybe it’s actually March 31st and I’m writing this early. Or maybe it’s the morning of the 1st, like the wee hours of the morning and my eyes are trying to close but my typing fingers don’t know when to quit. Or maybe I should […]
No, not that kind of choose you own adventure. The four of us have decided to keep to our tradition of December being the month where each of us can talk about whatever we choose. In other words, December’s topic is topic-less-ness. So what can you look forward to this December? Nafiza will write about […]
I can’t believe it’s already November (do we say this every month?)! As many of you, and a couple of us, are ramping up to write our 50 000 words for Nanowrimo we brilliant bloggers thought ahead and this year we are introducing a Book Club month. This way, since we made these recommendations months […]
