Why do I personally DNF books ?

DNF – meaning “did not finished”, the art of starting a book and purposely choosing not to continue any longer and therefore, not seeing how the book will end.

As many other people in our community, I was first on the fence about Dnf-ing. I didn’t even knew that was a thing before I join book blogging – It had just never crossed my mind that one could just put a book down to never picking it up again.

I still feel a bit iffy about doing so, for my own self rather than “I owe it to the author’ kind of thing, in some particular cases it is just needed.

So why do I feel the need to not continue a book ?

Un-Hauling books ?

Good morning, bookish friends!

As a long time reader, that’s something I actually never done before; Un-hauling books. So far, I had only received some from my godmothers, who love to un-haul her own after she read them once and thus bring them to me to read and do watever I want with them afterward.

Tag | Am I a bad blogger ?

Hello my bookish people,

I’ve been feeling quite off and sick-ish lately .. it started with a throat hurting and it moved to what looks like a cold (in the middle of summer..) — and i’ve been feeling for doing a tag lately !!

I filled one of thoses that looks like a 2009 old fb note’s survey thing … but then doubted myself and deleted it 😂 So I went to search for another and found this more blogging related one over to @nosestuckinabook !

Anime

Where it all began – My first anime

You can call this post my “origin story” because this post is about what anime brought me into the word of anime. I’ve probably watched about 20+ anime so far and I know that the number will only increase overtime because I love anime so much and I’m a big nerd.

 

You’re probably wondering what the first anime I ever watched was. Well like everyone from my generation I watched stuff like Pokémon, Digimon and Yu-Gi-Oh, but personally I don’t consider them anime or the shows that got me into anime. The first anime I ever watched was Naruto and I don’t mean Naruto Shippuden, I mean the original Naruto. I can still remember being in my room at 9 pm, sitting in my X-rocker chair and watching Team 7 fight in The Forest of Death against Orochimaru on my T.V. that had the big ass on it. You know what one I’m talking about right? Not a flat screen but the T.V that had the extended back and weighed like 50 pounds.

 

Naruto is my all-time favorite anime (will do a review on later), it just holds so much nostalgia for me, I got so invested in this anime and manga. I got so obsessed with this anime that I knew what time it was going to be airing and I would stay up late and watched the subbed version usually twice, so I can get everything from the episode. I would read ahead in the manga and be up to date with that also and still watch the anime even though I knew what was going to happen.

 

Naruto and Naruto Shippuden have a very special place in my heart. I never missed an episode from the anime or chapter from the manga, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I cried several times throughout the entirety of the series. I just love the characters from Naruto and Sasuke, to Guy and Lee, to Garaa and all the villains like Madara, Obitio and the Akatsuki.

This was the first anime I ever watched, and Naruto is easily my favorite anime of all time.

 

My question today is what was your “gateway anime/book”? What got you started watching or reading?

 

I hope you enjoyed my post, and as always, have a great day!
