So a while ago I made a collage summary of Vlogbrothers videos in 2007
And now here’s the 2008 instalment!
Including such moments as the “Best Wishes!” incident, the time when John stood on a table and later proved he wasn’t an octopus by throwing himself against a wall, the release of Hank’s first album, that time he went a bit crazy in the airport and of course, the awesome game of ‘Cows!’.
What a great year!
Others will come at some point in the future, maybe, possibly, hopefully.
Universal has optioned the film rights to the short-story collection Let It Snow, written by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. Released in 2…
So now we just need An Abundance of Katherines and Will Grayson, Will Grayson!
Initial thoughts after finishing listening to the Fangirl audiobook at work today:
- I really want Mexican food.
- I really want Levi.
So I’ve been waiting on an email response for over a week now for something super important to me and it’s making me the horrible kind of anxious where you get a funny stomach feeling when you think about it and it makes you want to puke.
Just GAH. How hard is it to respond to an email?
Staying up late to finish a book only for the ending to be completely rubbish.
How do you start you collage or how do you plan what goes where?! I was thinking about making one, but Idk how to organize it, and can you tell me the dimensions of the collage? thanks :)
I think layout is completely up to you, and with things like this, it’s good to experiment and see what works :)
I generally start with the title of the book/the author in the middle, and the design of that block tends to reflect on the cover of the book. Then I draw out the main things that I know I want on there and start moving them around with the quotes to see where they look best.
It really is just trial and error! I’m having such a hard time with the one I’m doing now and it’s bugging me so much!
As for dimensions,I make all mine in A3 size, simply because it’s easier when I want to get them printed myself to do it in a standard size. I used to make them in 11x16 (or whatever standard poster size in the US is) but then I could never get them printed around here.
I'm more of a silent stalker but i HAD to ask if you had (or were planning to) make a collage for Colleen Hoover's Ugly Love? Would it be rude to request one?
Silent stalking is probably the best kind of stalking….
I am indeed working on an Ugly Love collage! It’ll most likely be the next one I finish, I started it a while ago and I’m finding it really hard to finish. i always find it hard to make designs on books with so much um…sexual content haha.
But it is definitely coming soon! It’s the only one I’m working on atm (until I re read The Maze Runner this weekend) so hopefully will be done soon!
I laughed a bit too much at this quote from the latest Vlogbrothers video
I can’t draw noses or beards to save my life evidently.
I mean LOOK AT HOW AMAZING THIS READING LIST IS:
On Writing by Stephen King
Love Lessons by Jacqueline Wilson

Junk by Melvyn Burgess
The Secret Diary/Growing Pains of Adrian Mole by Sue Townsend

Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver
Geek Girl, by Holly Smale
The Knife of Never Letting Go, by Patrick Ness
A Streetcat named Bob, by James Bowen
Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi

If I don’t get onto this course, I will actually and literally cry.
How often do you get to study a subject with so many of your favourite books on there?!
(I promise to shut up about this soon…Once i get a frickin answer as to whether I’m allowed to do it or not)
So I just got back from watching the film adaptation of ‘Before I Go To Sleep’.
There were around 9 of us in the screen altogether and my friend and I were by FAR the youngest.
We also got asked for ID on the way in.
…It’s rated 15.
This makes me so happy. I never ever ever get asked for ID.
Anyway, the film was okay. I preferred the book a lot more (obviously) and it is so so so so weird watching a film that’s set in England. I’ve become so accustomed to American films and TV that I find it weird hearing British accents on screen.
Also Colin Firth - I will never be able to think of him as anything else but ‘that guy from Bridget Jones’ - so, quite a let down with him as the lead male.
I also bought Krispy Kreme donuts, so YAY for that.
So this ‘Writing YA Fiction’ module I want to take just keeps getting better and better. They’ve put Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson on the reading list!!! There’s also an article about The Fault in our Stars on there and OH MY GOD I WANT TO DO THIS SO MUCH!
I emailed my tutor about it but she hasn’t replied and I kinda want to punch her in the face.
I want to study this module so much it’s making me cry.
Listening to the ‘Fangirl’ audiobook at work today.
The British accents (narrating the Simon Snow extracts) make me laugh way more than they should….
Stayed up way past my bedtime to finish ‘Every Day’ because it was impossible to stop reading
OH MY GOD THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD.
I get why some people were unsatisfied with the ending and some parts of it annoyed me too, but overall - SO GOOD!
I have a feeling much tea will be drunk at work tomorrow. (Wish I liked coffee…)
Also, I started reading ‘Every Day’ by David Levithan last night. I’m only about 20 pages in but OH MY GOD, I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THE CONCEPT OF THIS BOOK. Funnily enough I noted down an idea like this for my creative writing class way back when and then stumbled across this!
It’s shaping up nicely atm, but i’ve heard negative things about the ending, so we shall see!
I’m kinda kicking myself for not reading this earlier and going to a signing whilst he was in the UK….
P.S This is the first David Levithan book i’m reading (other than the one he co wrote with John) and I’m kinda sorta in love with him already? Not so much his writing (only 10 pages in remember…) but like the format of his books. I have a weird obsession with books that are structured uniquely, and um, The Lover’s Dictionary sounds SO COOL. Deffo buying that next.
