No Books Allowed (1)

No Books Allowed is a monthly feature hosted by Raimy from Readaraptor! The aim is to discuss anything but books, hence the title ‘No Books Allowed.’

For my first post, I must tell you all how boring I am. Reading, and I know I shouldn’t really be talking about it, is one of the only things I do. Without reading or blogging, I would most probably have nothing to talk about. Now, you’re probably wondering why I’m taking part in this if I do nothing other than read but I’m hoping that this will encourage me to talk more freely about the things I do and also find a reason to write about something each month.


I don’t listen to a lot of music but when I do I listen to the same artists. This month I’m loving Please Don’t Say You Love Me by Gabrielle Aplin.

It was also Red Nose Day this month and, because of it, my school decided to do sit down Zumba to this song by One Direction:

I’ve also set up a new Twitter account this month, which is technically reading related but I’m really struggling of things to say here. You can find it here: @readingperks

I’m also going to be making more of an effort to go on Tumblr and have set up an account which you find at the URL:

I promise you I’ll try and be more exciting next month! I’ll try and think of things to add beforehand so that I don’t freeze whilst writing and forget what I was going to stay.

Hope you all have a fab April!

    Great post, Lucy! This is a great meme but I’m not sure if I could take part in it. I’m not that interesting… reading and blogging is my life 😛 When I’m not reading or blogging, I’m usually writing. But, like you, I guess it would encourage me to talk about other things!

    I love that Gabrielle Alpin song! It is so pretty! Sit down Zumba sounds interesting… I think I’d prefer that to normal Zumba, hehe 😉

    I’ll look forward to next week’s post! 🙂

    Haha I love Zumba and One Direction, so that sounds perfect. Hahaha, although I’m not too sure what sit down zumba is. Just checked out your new tumblr it’s awesome, i love your wallpaper.

    I know I’m a little late for this but SIT DOWN ZUMBA?! Now that sounds interesting. At my secondary school we used to do Boxercise to female empowering songs like Beyonce or Pink…
    Also I’ve literally just downloaded Please Don’t Say You Love Me. I love Gabrielle Aplin’s voice 🙂
