I Feel Like Gabbing Today


I have no idea how often I will have this post or when exactly I'm going to post it. This is a work in progress. I do however know that I want to share my very random thoughts that pop into my head with you. Many are bookish thoughts and many are not. Sometimes these posts will be one topic and sometimes just a list of random ideas, who knows. This week it is a list. I feel like I don't have enough discussion type posts on the blog so I am giving this a whirl.

1. I may love books and reading is without a doubt my first and foremost favorite hobby, but I also love movies and tv shows. For some reason, I have honestly no idea why, I avoid writing a lot of posts about my other hobbies. I just always feel like I can only write about books on here, but this is my blog so really I can talk about whatever I want.

2. NaNoWriMo begins super soon, like super super soon (tomorrow), and I am not ready. I have a basic idea of what I want to write about but that is it. The worst part, I never even finished editing the book I wrote last year. Therefore, sometimes I'm pretty sure I shouldn't even do NaNoWriMo thisyear. I mean what's the point? BUT I am going to participate anyway so I guess I don't care that much.

3.Confession: I am just like almost every one else this time of year, I love all things pumpkin. I'm not ashamed. I even tried the iced pumpkin mocha at Dunkin. I don't regret it.

4. I love binge watching tv shows. The catch, I very rarely ever finish a show I begin watching. I get bored. I do however sometimes end up finishing the show eventually when I feel like it at a much later date.

5. Now I'm going to share with you my most deepest darkest secret... sometimes I'm just not in the mood to read. It doesn't happen often but it has known to occur from time to time. I hate when it happens. Usually my husband forces me (don't worry he does so in a nice way) to sit down to read, and I always end up thanking him profusely.

6. There is some crazy blogger/author stuff going on right now (I'm sure you have heard about it on Twitter). I like to stay out of all drama, but I will say that I never in any circumstance think stalking is okay.

7. They encourage us to dress up for Halloween at work (the library). Last year I was Annabeth from the Percy Jackson series. Today I am going to be a minion!

8. I don't understand turning any and all costumes into slutty costumes. This list of sexy Halloween costumes that shouldn't be sexy sums up my thoughts on the topic perfectly.

That's it for this round of It's a Book Life's Gab Session. I actually really enjoyed gabbing with you and I think I will be making this a weekly thing. We shall see. Join in on the Gab Session below. I would love to hear your random bookish and not bookish thoughts!


  1. My library just posted pictures of the staff and kiddos dressed in costumes & it looks like so much fun! Hope you have a Happy Halloween :)

    1. We had so much fun at the library. We had a lego Batman, a book fairy, someone dressed up as our library's library card. :D I hope you had a wonderful Halloween.

  2. Yay, a Minion! Love it. I'm going as a domestic goddess - lol, myself ;) Thanks for sharing a fun discussion post, I need to try this as well. *sighs* Someday. Have you been in the mood for mysteries or atmospheric books this month? I can't seem to read enough of them. And, YES to all things pumpkin too.

    Happy Halloween Kay!! :)

    1. I had a blast as a minion. All the kids loved it. :) I'm glad you enjoyed the discussion post. I would love to read one like this on your blog. I am definitely a holiday/season reader. Pumpkin everything is the best!

      I hope you had a wonderful Halloween.

  3. Sometimes I feel like I can only write about books too but you're right, they're our blogs so we can write about what we want! Just because they're book blogs, it doesn't mean that they should only be about books. TV and films are great too. :D

    (Belated) Happy Halloween!

    1. I agree. Now if only I can get over it and blog about anything I want. lol

      I hope you had a wonderful Halloween!

  4. I love books too and reading and writing probably is my first place. But I have been trying to add in other things in my blog too, and I would be interested in hearing more about your other hobbies as well! I am also doing Nano so hears to doing it together ;) I don't feel half as read but somehow I spit out 2500 words today :D

    Loving the Gabbing post <3


    1. Thanks so much! I wish you the best of luck with NaNo as well! It is such a blast. Great word count so far. :)

  5. I love this! I definitely think these types of posts help get to know the blogger better and its amazing how many people you discover share the same thoughts/feelings/insecurities/hobbies etc as you do.

    1. I don't write a ton about my other hobbies either but I would like to start. I see more and more bloggers branching out from just books too.
    2. I am impressed by everyone that attempts this event. I don't think it's my thing even if I had the time but I do think its a great idea! GOOD LUCK. And you can always return to books and edit them later.:)
    3. I'm more of a chai girl (year round) but dunkin also makes an amazing vanilla chai tea latte!
    4. Ugh I am so behind on every TV show I watch. And because I barely watch TV nowadays I've abandoned so many shows.
    5. There are times I feel that way too but it usually doesn't last long. I either force myself to read (like your husband encourages you to do) or switch books!
    6. Agreed (on both accounts)
    7. I ended up dressing up as part of a themed group but from now on if I dress up I definitely want to be someone from a book after writing last week's TTT post. Minions are cute!
    8. Yeahhhh *rolls eyes*


    1. I hope to be doing this kind of post every other week. We shall see! Your Thoughts for Thursday was inspiration for this post!

      I must try this vanilla chai tea latte. I must.
      I agree with you 100%. I want to dress up as everyone from all the books after TTT.
