Share Your World meme | Is This Delphine’s World ???

Dear fellow Babblers,

It’s been a while since I had a heart-to-heart chit chat with y’all. Since my blog has undergone a shift from book reviews to include my new project, Wanderings, I’ve been feeling a bit lost and confused as to where I stand in the blogging community as well as in my life. Thinks are moving fast for me without really going anywhere. I write things without really meaning anything. I talk about things without really saying anything about them. I’ve been staring at this screen for the last couple hours, but if I’m being honest I’ve been staring at it for the last couple of days. If anything brings me peace and pieces me back together, if only for a short while, its writing to anyone here that still bothers to scroll through their feed and click and read through my dry, sometimes, but more often than not, babbles.

For that past few days I’ve been waking up at odd hours of the night due to some medical issues I’ve been dealing with and once I wake up, there’s no chance that I fall back to sleep again. During these quiet hours when the rest of my town is either sleeping or going through the same sickening nostalgia as I am, I go to my old soul playlists and spend the next five hours reading each and ever word I have ever written, be it on my blog or a document uncovered in my computer files. Some are lighthearted and quirky, but, more often than not, they are melancholic and reminiscent of a time where simplicity and innocence was all I ever knew.

For todays’ post I am going to share my world with y’all. I found this meme, “Share Your World” from one of my new favorite bloggers, Julie, a photographer and graphic artist. As most of my followers are book reviewers and/or wanderlust gypsies, I whole-heartedly recommend meandering over to her site and checking out all of her stunning photography, travel features, not to mention breathtaking art.

Especially as January is already coming to a close, it’s especially of value to me as a blogger and total lost pigeon to share my world, whatever my world is and by sharing it, maybe I’ll finally figure out what exactly my “world” even is…  Continue reading “Share Your World meme | Is This Delphine’s World ???”

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Summer Activities That Aren’t Reading

Dear fellow Babblers,

Happy Tuesday! No wait, whahhhhh? You tellin me the lovely gals behind The Broke and the Bookish have gone on a 7 WEEK HIATUS? Whahh ezzzz deees bologna I reeeed???? Quoi?… Ok Delphine, get over yourself, no need to exaggerate the accent here, you’re American, remember?

Just like most of my fellow book bloggers, I have grown to enjoy Tuesdays for the Top Ten Tuesday meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Now that they’re on vacation, however, I guess it’s that time to do archive-searching and along with all the rest of y’all, re-create new Top Ten Tuesday discussions, or repeat those which have done before.

Today I’ll be doing Top Ten Favorite Summer Activities That Aren’t Reading since:
1. Stephanie at Stephanie’s Novel Fiction is my idol who makes homemade ice cream has just done it.
2. It’s summer so why not ?
3. Yes, book bloggers do other activities other than reading and it’s time to babble about what… Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Summer Activities That Aren’t Reading”

Top 5 Tuesday – Short Babble on Some Longgg Reads

Dear fellow Babblers,

Please allow a special pause, moment of appreciation, kiss-blow, obnoxious holla for our fellow Americans out there… HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! Now, I’m usually not one to go out of my way on holidays – hence I’m sitting at home with the usual – little man, Haruki, iced lemon black tea, with my MAC typing up these very babbles that Señorita Delphine is ever so grateful to entertain you with. However, given all the controversy that has been going on here in the states (lets leave it at that shall we, *ahem, ahem, GET OUT THE WHITE HOUSE TRUMP!* ?), I figured it to be especially important to give a shout out to my fellow Americans out there who have, yes, the corny is coming: “Live the American Dream…”.

Babbles on Throwback Thursday

Dear fellow Babblers,

Happy Friday Eve! At this point in my insubstantial existence the days of the week are becoming less and less important as one 24-hour cycle seems to blur into the next here in my sunny palm-tree infested hometown of West LA (why you gotta be so precise Delphine? No one’s trying to track you down so stop your babble and get to the weekly meme!).

Hear the voice inside my head? A bit aggressive, don’t cha think? That’s what I gotta deal with along with the summer heat and continuous roar of California traffic which all seems to crowd perfectly on Wilshire towards Santa Monica beach… Guess my beach trip is going to be postponed yet another afternoon. So now that I’m yet again sitting at my favorite spot in front of my window, black iced tea infused with lemon by my side I thought ” Why not get some babbling in? ” And what are we book babbling about today, on this crisp, bright Thursday? Top of the hour weekly meme time! Continue reading “Babbles on Throwback Thursday”
