Einstein’s Greatest Mistake: Book Review & #CreativityisContagious Campaign

Einstein’s Greatest Mistake: Book Review & #CreativityisContagious Campaign

For the past week I've been taking part in the #CreativityisContagious campaign for Einstein's Greatest Mistake by David Bodanis. Here's my review of the book!

For the past week I’ve been involved in a very exciting campaign in conjunction with Little, Brown UK. The #CreativityisContagious campaign has been happening on Twitter to celebrate the release of Einstein’s Greatest Mistake: The Life of a Flawed Genius by David Bodanis. The book is a biography of Albert Einstein and his achievements, successes, and his all too human flaws. I’ve loved being a part of this campaign! In this post, I’ll tell you all about the campaign, my recent fascination of physics and astronomy, and finally, I’ll review the book.

Harry Potter Spells Book Tag

When I saw that I was tagged in the Harry Potter Spells book tag, I was so excited! I was tagged to do this by Lauren at Comma Hangover. I haven’t seen this tag before and as a super massive Harry Potter nerd, I can’t wait to do it! This tag involves thinking of books that match each spell. Let’s get started!

The Liebster Award #2!

The Liebster Award #2!

I was nominated a second time for the Liebster Award, so here is my response!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, at least a few months, you might remember that I was nominated for the Liebster Award. I don’t think my answers were great because the post was written so early on (it was less than my 10th post on my blog). I’ve been nominated again by ReaderInterrupted, so even though I’ve already done this, I’m going to do it again! The rules have also slightly changed since the last time I did it too, so it’ll be a bit different.

The Liebster Award is a great way of bringing attention to other bloggers that you feel deserve recognition, and the rules are simple! 1) You must acknowledge the person who nominated you and display the award; 2) Answer eleven questions that the blogger gives you; 3) Give eleven facts about yourself, and 4) Nominate 11 blogs that you think are deserving of the award. After you’ve answered the questions, make sure you tell the bloggers you’ve nominated that you’ve nominated them, and give them 11 more questions to answer. Here are my answers!

In my 25 bookish facts about me, I admitted that that I have an awful habit of judging a book by its cover. If a cover is unattractive to me, it’s likely that I won’t pick it up – but if a cover it pretty, I will instantly want to read the blurb. This probably means that I’m missing out on some great books just because the covers don’t look very nice. However, in this post I’m going to share some of my favourite book covers and explain what it was about them that enticed me to read them.
