When Will I Learn

Standard

I do not know  why I bother you when are unbothered to respond.

I do not know why my behaviour is foolish when it comes to you.

When will I learn to careless when you you hardly care more?

When will I learn to stay away, the hell away!

Top 5 Wednesday/Bookish Things You’re a Grinch About

Standard

Hello bookish people, I hope this post finds you all cozy and reading! Top 5 Wednesday this week covers:

December 6th – Bookish Things You’re a Grinch About
— Since being a grinch is a funny thing, try not to make this serious topics that make you angry (like lack of diversity or abusive relationships in fiction, etc) as this is supposed to be more of a petty bookish things you hate. This can be stuff about covers, dumb tropes, etc. Have fun with it.

 

Let us get into it:
1. Millionaire/Billionaire Stories and Book Cover

Every time I come across a Contemporary Romance with a picture of a half naked man on the cover, most times the synopsis is a woman meeting  a millionaire or billionaire. I would sometimes just burst out laughing. Why is it always a millionaire and why is he is always naked when the majority of the storyline he is in a suit?

2. World Building in EV- ERYTHING

3. People Using Books ONLY for Decoration

I am being pretty petty when I ask you why do you have  1000 unread books on your bookshelf arranged in colours, putting the popular releases to the front yet you keeping adding to the pile. When are you going to read all those books? Plus buying books you know nothing of not bothering to read the summary to the back? Wow (OK it is your money!)

4. Disrespect for Libraries

Folks who roll eyes at library books- no wonder libraries are dying, which is quite ashamed.

5. Leave Me Alone, Yes I Dog Ear My Books (At Least I Read)

It is not a decoration!

My #ReadKidsLit for 2017

Standard

November is synonymous with many observances, one of my favourite’s is the celebration of  World’s Children’s Day. Lesley from WordsofA Reader inspired me to dedicate the month of November in reading stories for children. I love children stories so it was an easy, simple and fun event to delve in Children’ Literature.

This year all the books I read were first times readings and some of  the stories were film adaptations that I saw previously always murmuring that I need to read the books. I am so happy that I finally read these:

1. Jungle Book 1 by Rudyard Kipling
2. Jungle Book 2 by Rudyard Kipling
3. Pollyana by Eleanor H Porter
4. The Railways Children by E. Nesbit
5. Little House on the Prairie- Book 2
6. The Happy Hollisters and the Scarecrow Mystery (Happy Hollisters, #14)by Jerry West

My favourite read is Pollyana because it is a story that I am sure makes the darkest heart bright and the saddest frown smile. Pollyana is certainly one of the most infectious characters I have read.

My least favoured book is Jungle Book 1 due to the writing style of the author splitting up Mogwli stories with other Jungle animals. I rather if all Mogwli stories were grouped together followed by the other Jungle animals. In addition, the other Jungle stories were not all interesting.

Since yesterday the 19th of November was International Mens Day and today is Universal Children’s Day I would like to shout all the men out there especially the daddies making time for their babies. I leave you with a video above showing daddies and their babies sharing funny and happy moments. Enjoy 🙂

This weekend make the men and the kids in your life feel extra special.

A Poem For Universal Children’s Day

Let them giggle, let them sing, let them play hide and seek.

Feed them properly but a few snacks will not hurt.

Please do not use the candy to bribe them into silence

because of your indecent touch.

I wish all those fingers would rotten and fall off for such filthy

actions. You have corrupted their innocence creating monsters lurking to destroy from the inside out.

Let their vivid imagination grow, teach them manners but do not shut them…

5 of My Favourite Men Characters

Standard

Since today is International Men’s Day, I celebrate five (5) of my favourite men characters.

1.Martin Luther King Jr. in Martin Luther King by Rob Lloyd Jones

Martin Luther King Jr. died fighting against segregation and discrimination of  black people. One of the most remarkable selfless characters I have read in Literature, one that many attest to out of Literature. Even when his family were almost killed and he lose his home, he still called out for “Love,” he shouted, “I want you to love our enemies. We can’t let their hate stop us.” How many of us can truly utter those words to the people who wants us dead?

I Value You [Free Verse Poetry]

Standard

International Mens Day

I appreciate, appraise and applaud you for your substance, substituting the  flight mode
to stay close.

I encourage you to speak when that peak of words reaches a tone of noise, which whispers to you to “end it because no one cares.”

I care, I hold your opinions in high heights of regard, please do not run away on a flight  of  no  return.

I celebrate you man, manners of awesome autumnal wisdom. I listen to your tales with tears wondering why all of us failed to uplift.

Step away from that cliff. You are a gift, shift to the side and see that your boy is listening.

 

I wrote this short Free Verse Poem in honour of International Mens Day. To find more about the day honoring men please go to http://www.internationalmensday.com/.

One Body, One Life [Acrostic Poetry]

Standard

One body we have so we must

Nuture that essence that make us.

Entertain no thoughts to pollute our

Being, our core.

Organs needs care constantly.

Do not drown with added sugars.

Yearn not for the constant sugary snacks, it is a fight that we must beat.

On International Diabetes Day, I did ponder extra on my chooses of food.

Naturally if my body is my house, I should keep it clean in

Everyway. Not just in grooming but

Limiting the types of drinks and solids I let travel to my work machine.

Invite no toxins by deliberately over consuming too much natural and package sugar.

Fight for your home.

Encourage your body to feel good.

The Classics Spin #16

Standard

The Classic Club

It’s time for another Classics Spin!

What is the spin?

It’s easy. At your blog, before next Friday, November 17th, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the year (details to follow). Try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, re-reads, ancients — whatever you choose.)

On Friday, November 17th, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by December 31, 2017. We’ll check in here in January to see who made it the whole way and finished their spin book!
