Welcome to No Books Allowed. This is a new monthly feature hosted by Raimy at Readaraptor, used to discuss things things in life which aren’t connected to books. This post can be used to talk about days out, music, TV, video games, films etc for all those book bloggers out there who do occasionally do stuff other than read and go to book events!
My first try at this feature was a bit of a fail and so I’ve decided to try again. After all, practice makes perfect!
So, I’ve been listening to a lot of Imagine Dragons this month. My friend is a huge fan and so we talk about their music and she got me into them. It definitely helped that they were featured in The Host.
As I’ve said before, I’m also a massive fan of Gabrielle Aplin and her music and her first album was released this month and I’ve been playing that non-stop since.
I started vlogging as well and that’s something that I’d like to do more of but I don’t think I’m good at putting my personality across and so I really need to come out of my shell a bit more. I’m going to try and film at least once every month now, with tags and book hauls.
I had a litter of guinea pigs born this month and also bought a new male. It’s important to bring new blood in so that there’s no inbreeding and it also means that we get new colours in. All of our females go back to one
guinea pig and we keep track of all the babies that are born, although I do need to organise myself a little better.
On the right is Harry. He’s an Abyssinian male and is eight weeks old. He’ll be ready to mate when he’s around six to eight months old, so it’s a bit of a wait but I don’t mind because it gives me plenty of time to look after him properly and give him lots of attention.
On the left is Ginny, a female who will be ready to breed around the same time as Harry. Both names are inspired by Harry Potter.
What non-bookish things have you done this month? Tell me in the comments below!
