Where To Find Us Online!

Hello, everyone! It is Ally again with another post! So today, I’d thought it would be nice to show you guys where you can find us online- Instagram, Gmail and etc. We love chatting with all of you and so this might help us communicate a little better!

Let’s get started!

WordPress:

@theimmortalreaders.wordpress.com

Hi! This is where all three of us hang and write our collective posts. This part is kinda irrelevant though, as you are already here 🙂

Instagram:

@theimmortalreaders

Whilst our WordPress account is monitored and looked at by all three of us, I (Ally) tend to run our Instagram. This is because both Melia and Laurena don’t have the app and so I post the pictures and run that aspect of our social media! 😀

Goodreads!

On Goodreads, we all have an account and I’ll link them below.

Ally’s Goodreads

Laurena’s Goodreads

Gmail:

Laurena: laurena.theimmortalreaderss@gmail.com (please note, there are two ‘s’)

Melia: melia.theimmortalreaders@gmail.com

Ally: ally.theimmortalreaders@gmail.com

All of us: theimmortalreaders3@gmail.com

Youtube (Or rather booktube)

Coming soon! We hope!

Comment below and tell us where we can find you on social media and we’ll do our best to follow you as well! 😀

What do you want to read on TIR?

Hellooooo…

In a minor bout of self-consciousness, we created a survey to find out what you want to read on our blog. I think this is really important because there is no point of having a blog if no one reads it and because if you want to read something, we won’t waste time blogging something that you won’t read.

So what we write is up to you. Please answer honestly, and we will try to cater to allow you to read what you would like to read.

SHERLOCK!!!!! (Cue Melia rolling her eyes because she hasn’t seen Sherlock and has had to deal with Laurena and Ally’s fangirling for far too long because hey! it has been happening for ages.)

That Pesky TBR Pile Dominating The Room

caf36-tbr.png

Hello readers! It is Laurena here!

Sorry we have been absent, we had a Science assessment due (on my birthday!), and English assessment due on the last Wednesday of term, a Geography test to study for, an Art assessment to prepare, a Technology assessment… You get the drift! Too much schoolwork…

But, as it is almost holidays, we will post more frequently!

I have been buying/ borrowing far too many books in the past month! And I shoved them aside because I got my hands on a copy of Empire of Storms. So, my TBR pile has been slowly creeping up on me!

I thought that I should record them here along with a couple of tips to help shrink that pile down…

So, without further ado, my TBR list!

The Ever So Helpful Guide to Finishing Your TBR

If you are viewing this post, it’s probably because your TBR (To Be Read) pile looks something like this…

more

 

Huge. Messy. Intimidating.

Well, this can be fixed with the help of TIME, RESILIENCE and ME! (Melia)

I am no magician and I can’t give you tips on reading your TBR pile of 1,000,000 books in a week, but I can give you tips on reading your TBR pile of 50 books in a little less than a year.

Remember, just because your friend is reading 10 books a week doesn’t mean you have to as well.

Tip #1: Read Instead

This tip is harder than it sounds. It requires lots of willpower. Do not reach for your phone. Reach for a book. Do not reach for the remote. Reach for a book.

This tip can become troublesome. If you read for hours and hours and hours and don’t stop, you could be shoving yourself into a reading slump. When I say hours and hours and hours, I mean around 10 hours with no breaks.

 

Tip #2: Ban All Libraries and Book Stores

It’s pretty self-explanatory. Read the books that you already have (unless there is an anticipated release that you truly must buy). Only browse in book store when you don’t have any money on you. Only browse in libraries’ if you don’t have your library card.

I am really bad at this one. I see a book I want and I use my fabulous negotiating skills to get my mum to let me buy it and then, oops, there goes my money… and my book buying ban… and my social life.

 

Tip #3: Move Out of Slumps. Fast

You just finished the most amazing book ever and your favourite character died. You can’t move on. Oh, how drastic! No other books are sticking! Will you ever read again?

Yes, you will. You will push though that slump by watching BookTube or reading Book Blogs. (I recommend these booktubers: Abookutopia and LovingDemBooks, and these book bloggers Mollie the Reader and Bookish Serendipity)

If that doesn’t work, just keep picking up books until one sticks. Trust me; reading will come back to you.

 

I hope that this ‘Ever-so-helpful’ guide has helped you or will in the future!
