Hello again, here I am with yet another 10 day catch up for the #100DayProject, this time it’s days 41-50. If you have been following along on Instagram, I have been posting attempting to post them every day but of course that only works if you work ahead or keep up to date and I have not been able to do either due to sick kitties. So finally I have finished the few that were missing from this batch and I wanted to do a round-up post here on the blog. You can find a detailed post for my Day 1 project where I went into the ins and outs of what I was doing, and here is a look at the first ten days and days 11-20 and days 21-30 and days 31-40. For this post, I am presenting the finished projects for days 41 to 50 and it does contain some of my favourites – not only books but covers too! I can’t believe 50 days have passed and we are already half way, or past it actually since I am a few days behind with this post. Where does the time go? It reminds me of a quote from The Color Purple about time: Time moves slowly but passes quickly. So just to recap, I am behind, so my post is late, and Day 50 was actually the 21st of March. Today is Day 56 but looking after poorly kitties comes first!
Here are the individual days with titles, authors and quotes.
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Atonement by Ian McEwan
Life after Life by Kate Atkinson
The Little Friend by Donna Tartt
Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
Oscar and Lucinda by Peter Carey
The Hare with the Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal
So why ATCs and why these books? Well in order to make it easier on myself and therefore make it more likely that I could do all 100 days, I thought ATCs would be perfect. Then I thought of book quotes handwriting them, perfect way to practice my lettering and also indulge my love of books. So what books? The first 25 books are all books with elements of magic in them (fantasy, supernatural, urban fantasy, vampires, witches, werewolves etc) and then I changed to modern fiction and I will see if I do 25 of those or more. As with the first 25 books, all books must be taken from my shelves and be actual physical books, no ebooks, no audiobooks! I have also started taking elements from the book covers and incorporating them in the ATCs so they are starting to look like mini book covers.
#The100dayproject – Day 41-50So tell me, what books have you read and what’s your favourite cover, if any? Let me know in the comments and as always, thanks for reading!
