How Do We Deal With Reading Slumps?

Recently I was in a massive reading slump and I hadn't read anything substantial for at least a month but luckily now I am out of that but during this time I was thinking about how I should deal with my slump and I came up with two options for the kind of reading slump that I was in.

I was in the most common of reading slumps which is when you just don't want to read anything. You are bored and have nothing to do yet you still don't pick up a book and even when you do pick up a book you put it back down only after a few pages because you just don't see the greatness of reading. I may be exaggerating but that's how I felt in my reading slump.

My two options include...

Review: The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel

Title: The Book of Ivy
Author: Amy Engel
Publishers: Entangled Teen
Page Count: 280

Goodreads Synopsis:

After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual.

This year, it is my turn.

My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president’s son—my soon-to-be husband—and restore the Westfall family to power.

But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he’s not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy.

Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him…

One Year Blogoversary at Chapters Pages Words! (INT GIVEAWAY)

Today is the day! One year ago today I decided that I would start this very blog and I had no idea that one year from then I would still be doing it and enjoying it just as much!

So in order to celebrate my first Blogoversary, I had decided to host my very own giveaway! I have never given anything away on my blog that was just by me so I thought there'd be no better time than now!

I am going to be giving away any book (or more) from The Book Depository that is up to £13. This can either be one hardback, one paperback or even two paperbacks but it's up to you what you want if you win.

I understand that I have many readers from other countries especially the USA so if you are unsure about how the costs translate from dollars to pounds or any other currency to pounds then feel free to ask me about it if you win and we can work out the prices of what you want.

So obviously there have to be some rules to this giveaway so here they are:

1) You must be 18 or older or have permission to give me your address and details
2) If you do win this giveaway you have one week to reply with your details otherwise the prize will go to someone else
3) If you have won then I will contact you on Twitter
4) I will contact you within 48 hours of the giveaway closing to tell you if you have won
5) Please only enter this giveaway if The Book Depository ships to your country
6) This giveaway will end at 12:00 AM on the 1st of August

a Rafflecopter giveaway

So that's all for today! Thank you for such an amazing year here at Chapters Pages Words and if you haven't been here for the whole year of if you're even just discovering my blog, please still feel free to enter and I hope to see you again in the future!

Happy Reading!

Review: All I Know Now By Carrie Hope Fletcher

Title: All I Know Now
Author: Carrie Hope Fletcher
Publishers: Little Brown
Page Count: 288

Goodreads Synopsis:

We all know that growing up is hard to do, and sometimes the only thing that makes it better are the reassuring words of someone who has walked that bumpy road just a few steps ahead of you and somehow ended up as a fully-functioning adult. Carrie Hope Fletcher is that person.* Thanks to her phenomenally popular YouTube videos, Carrie has become an 'honorary big sister' to hundreds of thousands of young people who turn to her for advice, friendship and, most of all, the knowledge that things will get better.

 Carrie has created a safe and positive space for young people to connect and share their hopes and concerns online, and now she will share her most personal thoughts and experiences in her first book, ALL I KNOW NOW. Part memoir, part advice guide, it will include Carrie's thoughts on some of the topics she's asked about most regularly: bullying, body image, relationships and perhaps the scariest question of all: what does the future hold for me? With warmth, wit and a sprinkling of hard-won wisdom, Carrie will provide the essential tools for growing up gracefully . . . most of the time.

 *Although she did recently post a video about how to pee in a onesie. So the definition of 'adult' is a bit flexible here . . .

Fall Out Books Tag

So if you've been reading my blog for a little while you may have realised that there is one band I like in particular and that is Fall Out Boy. So one day when I was browsing the internet I noticed a book tag that was originally created on Youtube by Maddie from twobookteens!

So naturally I knew that I had to do this tag even if I wasn't tagged so here goes!

Get To Know Me!

I have almost been blogging for a year (omg) and it has come to my attention that you may not know too much about me so I thought I'd be super clever (not really) and say 18 little facts about me, one for each letter in my blog name!
