EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT!

Hi Everyone!

So, this is going to be a very short post about a very exciting announcement that I have for you guys today.

So, after years of doubt and nerves I finally decided that there is no better time than now to start my BookTube channel!! This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for years and I’ve just been putting it off for a “better time” but I finally got up the courage to actually do it!

(If you’re interested you can find it here!)

I’ve been so inspired by all of the other creators out there and I love interacting with the bookish community through the other social media platforms I’m apart of and now I get to communicate with a whole other side of it!

This doesn’t mean that there will be any change on my posting schedule for this blog! Of course, I will still be posting on here regularly and that will not change at all! This channel is just another way for me to talk about what I love and it won’t negatively affect this blog at all! 🙂

I love this community so much, thank you for inspiring me every day!

I’m beyond excited to start this new chapter (see what I did there) of my life with you guys! Thank you so much!

Happy Reading!

Let’s Talk About: How You Picture Characters

I’m starting a new series on this blog called “Let’s talk about…”where we can all discuss certain things about reading whether that be where we read, how we started reading, how we picture things etc. Let me know what you guys think of this series and if you like today’s post!

Picturing the setting, characters, world etc. is a pretty much essential thing when it comes to reading. But, I feel like it’s a topic not too many people talk about for some reason.

But, imagining the characters is an important part of diving into the story and everyone has their own way of doing it. For me a character is more of a feeling or an impression. I don’t see the details of a character and I don’t have a clear picture of them in my head just a feeling and a sense of them. I know their features like say, their hair color or their eye color but I can’t picture it all together. I know where the character would be positioned and I know what they’re doing but I have to strain to really see it clearly.

If I do picture a character, it’s because there’s been a movie or TV show adaptation and even then I have to really think about seeing that person. Occasionally, I also see more cartoon like characters while I read.

What made me wonder about this was that some people say that an actor or actress portraying a book character in an adaptation looks nothing like how they pictured the character but, it usually doesn’t bother me at all as long as they have the essence of that character and pretty much match their description.

How do you picture characters? I’d love to know if any one else sees them like I do or if you have a different way of seeing them!

Happy Reading!
