The Blog Most Likely To… challenge is one that was inspired by Huntley Fitzpatrick’s book, The Boy Most Likely To. In the run up to its release bloggers were asked to choose their own superlative for their blog using the tag “The Blog Most Likely To…”. Even though the book is well past its release day this challenge is still floating around out there and I was tagged by Analee at Book Snacks, so thank you Analee for this tag.
When I read The Boy Most Likely To at the beginning of this year I loved it, even more than the previous companion novel My Life Next Door. Tim’s journey throughout was so wonderfully written, so moving, and it made the whole book felt real and incredibly well developed. Of course I jumped at the chance to take part in this challenge; despite the facts that The Boy Most Likely To has been released for a while now and that it’s taken me a long time to get around to this tag.
He’s a kid. Not a man, not on some deadline. But with his jaw set and raised—I know that face. The I’m going to push on through, no problem, I’ll deal. Moving right along. Nothing to see here face. Know it as well as my own. It is my own. And I picture the rest of the lines on that paper.
Tim Mason: The Boy Most Likely To…
Forget his own name even before we do
Turn down the hottest girl in the world for the coldest beer
Be six feet under by our fifth reunion
Don’t go that way, Tim. Such a stupid, stupid waste.
Reading Every Night is the Blog Most Likely To…Put Things Off.
It’s got to be a well known fact by now, given how often I’ve mentioned it, that I can be a massive procrastinator. Ever since I was in high school there has always been something I’ve put off; be it leaving my coursework until the last minute, or only properly revising for exams the night before. When I was in university it got worse, not because my procrastination got worse but because the projects I was leaving until the last minute couldn’t be done at the last minute. I did a lot of rushing around and all-nighters to get everything handed in on time.
Now that I’m working full time it’s not so bad. However before I started this blog I did have three others, and they all fizzled out because it got to the point – three months, four months, five months in – when I would just wouldn’t be in the mood to write and edit a post. I’d put it off and say to myself, ‘I’ll get something written and posted tomorrow’, and I’d keep saying that to myself until before I knew it three months, four months, five months had passed, I still hadn’t posted anything, and my blog had just fizzled out.
Luckily that hasn’t been the case with Reading Every Night – you know what they say; third fourth time’s the charm – and I am trying very hard to keep it that way. However there are still times when I haven’t posted anything, or been late replying to comments, because I’ve put it off until the next day. Times when my monthly recaps have been a few days late because I haven’t wanted to get started on them, and times when I’ve said so and so book is next on my to-read list only to pass it by because I am a mood reader and I just didn’t feel like reading it.
I’m supposed to offer examples for this but honestly I can’t really find any examples of my putting things off unless you count;
- The fact that I have said to various people I will be creating a Goodreads account any day now and I still haven’t and…
- …that my March and April recap posts ended up being posted a good few days after the end of the month.
