Covers of books Ren just gotRen: Guess who finally bought some dead tree books for the first time in forever! I really wanted a coy of Wreck This Journal because it sounded like a good way to de-stress — for those who don’t know, it’s a journal that tells you to do whacky things like cutting through pages, cracking the spine, doodling on it with your left hand… So far I haven’t done much with it, but I’ve thrown it down four flights of stairs and it felt incredibly fun. I’ll probably make some posts about it, I’m not very artistic (if you google Wreck This Journal you’ll see people who have done amazingly artsy things with theirs) but I have a box of crayons and coloured pens and I’m determined to have lots of stupid fun with it! The other book is To Be Or Not To Be, the choose-your-own-adventure inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet. I was a huge CYOA fan, I used to borrow the Lone Wolf books from the library in middle grade, so I just had to read this. The photo doesn’t do the book justice, it’s HUGE and the illustrations inside are gorgeous. So far I’ve played a handful of different routes as the ghost of Hamlet’s father and it’s ridiculous and hilarious, I can’t wait to play as Ophelia!

    • *preens* We try. Well, I try. Ren never tries. She’s too busy reading. (Just kidding, she tries very hary. She actually wrote up the post this time, plus a few additions from me, and I think I will make her do it all the time now. She has a way with words that makes seemingly boring lists sound exciting. It’s probably the mathematician in her.)

    • I feel you on the TBR front. I probably never would’ve gotten around to reading it if Ren hadn’t picked it, so every nudge in either direction helps! My lips are sealed until the review is up. :x
