INfinities

Um, definitely NOT the Infinities one. Pretty sure they’ve just ripped off Risa’s design

If you really do like that design, I suggest you buy it from her directly, via her Society6 page instead of from meanies who steal designs and sell them off as their own.

(But yeah, i totes vote for #2 - as in like Risa’s design, not….yeah, you get it, right?)

You can tell I really really like a book when this happens an hour after finishing the first reading.
Book collage for Fangirl coming soon :)
Thank you to the anon who mentioned it which spurred me on to read it sooner than I was planning to.
A wee bit excited to start this! But before that…I need to go and read it again!

So, like who WOULDN’T want to be one of the first people in the country to watch The Fault in Our Stars? (It’s bad enough that we have to wait a whole 20160 minutes longer than the US)

I’d love love love to be able to go watch it with superfans (instead of with people who tell me to shush when I squeal at the cinema as the TFioS trailer comes on)

So yeah, Twentieth Century Fox, be my wish granting factory,

Okay?

P.S I should add that I’m having minor surgery shortly before this, so it would be an awesome ‘Glad you didn’t die’ celebration also.

First Track on Incongruent: “I Fucking Love Science.” I think this will also be the first music video…if all goes according to plan.

Obviously, this is the explicit version. If you like it please share! And high five to Rob Scallon for that SICK DRUM SOLO!

God I’m excited about this.

Aaaah! I’m so frick frackin excited to hear the rest of the songs!

Would you ever do a book collage for either Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell or one of Sarah Dessen's books like The Truth About Forever or Along For the Ride?
Anonymous

Those are three books on my iPad waiting to be read! I can’t really say I’ll design anything based on them until I’ve read the books. I really do want to make one for a Rainbow Rowell book though, simply because I love the colours on the covers! So yeah, Fangirl is a definite possibility. I’ve read two Sarah Dessen books in the past fortnight and haven’t enjoyed them very much, so I am quite skeptical of reading more at the moment…

I’ve got a few weeks off work coming up soon and I will be spending that whole time either reading or designing or sleeping. So, YAY for that!

I love getting mail the old-fashioned way.  This trip to the mailbox, however, stood head and shoulders over the usual haul of fliers and junk mail.  I’ve always loved yasminwithane's designs, but this one is my favorite to date.  My new iPhone case and tote bag are so amazing!

yasminwithane never forgets to be awesome. :)

It always makes me insanely happy when I see that people enjoying the stuff i make, so thank you for posting this Emily! And thank you for your lovely comments!  ^-^

I’m really glad everything arrived okay and that you’re happy with it.

I’m totally not jealous of the tote bag. Not at all. Nope. Totally not gonna go order myself one now….

With your designs which are amazing by the way , do you create the things you put on them yourself.. Like the pigeon for example, did you create that on Photoshop starting from scratch? Or do you follow a basic outline of it?
Anonymous

I wish I was talented enough to create them from scratch, but alas, I am not. I usually find an image on google and then use that as a guide to draw it with the pen tool. I am in absolute awe of people who can just draw things like that off the top of their head. I’ve always been an observational drawer :)

Fun fact: that same pigeon has now featured in 3 of my poster designs!

Just finished reading ‘Never Eighteen’ by Megan Bostic

It takes a LOT for a book to make me cry. Only a handful have managed to do so in the past but I was bawling when I read this!
Could have been written a lot better and was far too short, but yeah…pretty amazing.

I made a bookmark!

Didn’t turn out exactly as I had hoped, but….yeah.

I’ll probably make a Hank version soon to join in. :)

Questions About Books and Reading by sheinefeels
1: What was the last book you read?

Currently (re)reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.

Before that I (re)read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

2: Was it a good one?

Before I Fall - YES! It’s maybe kinda sorta my favourite book ever.

Beautiful Disaster - It’s okay.

3: What made it good?

Before I Fall - The plot is super interesting and thought provoking, I’ve always liked novels that are in sections too, so this ticks that box. I really like novels with darker themes, so another tick. And Lauren Oliver’s writing is just so insanely similar to the style I write in, like it’s crazy. I first read this book sometime last year and it’s stuck with me ever since. The characters are so amazingly well rounded and UGH I LOVE THIS BOOK.

Beautiful Disaster - It’s…an easy read? It’s quite funny and good if you’re into romance. I found the main characters a bit annoying at times.

4: Would you recommend it to other people?

Before I Fall - DEAR GOD, YES! Anyone reading this should just go read that instead. Seriously, don’t even bother reading the rest of this, just go read that book.

Beautiful Disaster - If YA Romance is your thing, then yes.

5: How often do you read?

It depends on what else I have going on. My current speed is about 2 books a week.

6: Do you like to read?

I’m wasting time answering questions about books and reading….I’m gonna go with ‘YES’

7: What was the last bad book you read?

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen (prepares for the hate to start pouring in)

8: What made you dislike it?

It really really didn’t interest me. I found it quite predictable (I’ve only read two of her books so far and found them both super predictable) and I don’t find her plots very interesting, nor her characters. I prefer more stuff going on, more depressing scenes and a death or two is always good. So yeah, it wasn’t really my cup of tea. I only read it because I’d heard a lot of good things about her books.

9: Do you wish to be a writer?

Yes yes yes yes! That is my ultimate dream. I minored in Creative Writing at University and am currently taking some evening classes in it. Maybe a Masters soon too, we’ll see!

10: Has any book ever influenced you greatly?

I can’t think of a specific book off the top of my head. But I was reading the author’s note in Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover the other day, and she had this quote from the Avett Brothers which was ‘Decide what to be, and go be it’ and I’ve been thinking about that a lot recently in regards to what I want to do with my life…so yeah, does that count?

11: Do you read fanfiction?

Nope.

12: Do you write fanfiction?

Nope.

13: What’s your favorite book?

YOU CAN’T ASK ME THAT! THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO ANSWER.

Here are my top 10 though, in no particular order.

1. Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver

2. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

3. Divergent - Veronica Roth

4- Looking for Alaska - John Green

5. The Fault in our Stars - John Green

6. Hopeless - Colleen Hoover

7. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time - Mark Haddon

8. Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher

9. The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini

10. The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

(You have no idea how hard it is to stop at just ten)

14: What’s your least favorite book?

Robinson Crusoe - I remember really really hating that at Uni.

15: Do you prefer physical books or reading on a device (like a kindle)?

Physical books, definitely. Preferably Used Paperbacks. I get really scared of ruining new books so can’t enjoy reading as much, and hardbacks are just awkward for me

16: When did you learn to read?

Um…I can’t remember

17: What is your favorite book you had to read in school?

Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks

18: What is your favorite book series? 

The Hunger Games & the Divergent trilogy

19: Who is your favorite author?

John Green

20: What is your favorite genre?

Young Adult Fiction

21: Who is your favorite character in a book series?

Daniel from Hopeless/Losing Hope/Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

or

Kiersten from Point of Retreat/This Girl by Colleen Hoover

22: Has a book ever transported you somewhere else?

Not physically, unfortunately.

23: Which book do you wish had a sequel?

Ummmmm….I can’t think of one right now…

24: Which book do you wish DIDN’T have a sequel?

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire (Walking Disaster was fine, since it was just a retelling of BD in another POV, but A Beautiful Wedding was so totally unnecessary and actually ruined the first book for me after having read it. It really annoyed me how the main problem within the whole plot was resolved with no exploration.)

25: How long does it take you to read a book?

It depends on the book and how much I like it. I tend to read a lot of short YA Fiction these days, so a couple of hours.

26: Do you like when books become movies?

Yes yes yes. I love comparing. Obviously having read the book first. 

27: Which book was ruined by its movie adaptation?

Before I Die by Jenny Downham. I really didn’t like Now is Good. But that might be because I don’t like Dakota Fanning.

28: Which movie has done a book justice?

The Hunger Games

29: Do you read newspapers?

No

30: Do you read magazines?

No

31: Do you prefer newspapers or magazines?

Magazines

32: Do you read while in bed?

Yes

33: Do you read while on the toilet?

No

34: Do you read while in the car?

I prefer to drive and even though I’m an awful driver, reading whilst driving is a step too far, I think!

35: Do you read while in the bath?

No

36: Are you a fast reader?

Sort of?

37: Are you a slow reader?

I don’t think so.

38: Where is your favorite place to read?

Outside in the shade on a nice sunny day :)

39: Is it hard for you to concentrate while you read?

Depends where I am/who’s around/what I’m reading

40: Do you need a room to be silent while you read?

No, but I prefer it

41: Who gave you your love of reading?

I honestly don’t know. No one else in my family is particularly bookish.

42: What book is next on your list to read?

Ohh, this is the tough decision I have every weekend! I have like a gazillion books on my shelf to read, but can’t choose which, so yeah. I don’t know. I’ll probably end up re-reading something just to make a collage out of it, like i’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks.

Although, I downloaded Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic the other day, and have really been looking forward to that, so maybe that…

43: When did you start to read chapter books?

I can’t remember :/

44: Who is your favorite children’s book author?

I’ve never really read children’s books, but um, does J.K Rowling count?

Or whoever wrote those Biff and Chip books.

45: Which author would you like to interview the most?

John Green!!! Although I would be completely and totally in awe and would just sit and stare.

46: Which author do you think you’d be friends with?

John Green, definitely. Well, I’d try my darned best to make him befriend me. I’m even willing to wear argyle socks.

47: What book have you reread the most?

Either Slammed by Colleen Hoover or The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

48: Which books do you consider “classics”?

The ones that make me want to fall asleep. I hate hate hate classics.

49: Which books do you think should be taught in every school?

Harry Potter books are quite good for teaching a bunch of stuff, I guess.

50: Which books should be banned from all schools?

I don’t believe in banning books.

So yeah, this was me procrastinating spending valuable time answering questions about my beloved books.

I hope you enjoyed me clogging up your dash.
