Alphabethon Round 4- D TBR!

Hey guys! Alphabethon round 4 is upon us! If you don’t know what Alphabethon is, it’s a readathon based on the alphabet. As I’ve said in the past,

Alphabethon is a super cool, relaxed, and fun readathon that is designed to help you work through your TBR, one letter at a time. Iโ€™ve joined the team as one of the hosts (which is super exciting), so youโ€™ll see me hosting some sprints throughout the week. We are now on Round 4 (oh, how time flies), so the challenges are all based around the letter D. This round will run from October 23-29. Also, as per usual, Michelle (the lovely creator) is giving away a $25 Amazon gift card! All you have to do to enter is post a picture of your D TBR on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #alphabethondtbr. Those are the basics, but definitely make sure you check out Michelleโ€™s post with all of the hosts and other details as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Alphabethon starts in about… oh, let’s see, two hours for me? No worries though, it’s never too late to sign up! Any reading is winning. ๐Ÿ™‚ Alright, on to the TBR!

Read a book with two D’s-


A Discovery of Witches has been on my TBR for absolutely AGES, and I had been considering taking it off, but I’ve recently heard a few different people talking very highly about it, so I figured this was the perfect time to get into it! This book actually qualifies for 3 different challenges, so I will most likely end up counting it for at least two. However, in the even that I have extra time, I have multiple books picked out for each prompt, so I’ll list a different one for each. ๐Ÿ™‚

Read a book with a main character whose name starts with D-


I own this book and I’m not going to lie, I know next to nothing about it. I believe she travels through dreams?

Read a book with a D setting-


This is actually free as an ebook and I’ve had it on my TBR for a while, so I thought this would be the perfect time to pick it up! It’s supposed to be super creepy and fairly good, so I’m excited!

Read a book with an object that starts with D on the cover-


I’ve been meaning to read this for AGES. I will almost certainly bawl my eyes out. I can’t wait.

Read a book with 400+ pages-


I recently finished my reread of The Raven Boys, so I’m ready to continue with the series and finally read it! I’m so excited to find out what happens with Blue and Gansey etc. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Read a book under 200 pages-


I absolutely love Ally Carter’s writing. I just recently read the book that I needed to get to to be caught up to this point in both series, so I think this will be super fun and quick! It was my only D book that was less than 200 pages, so I would have picked something more substantial, but I didn’t really have any other options.

Read a horror book-


I own this one now! My cousin was getting rid of her copy, so I decided to pick it up. I REALLY enjoyed the Bad Girls Don’t Die series by her, so I’ve been meaning to read this one for a while. It seems fairly short, but I could be wrong about that. Hopefully not!

And that’s my TBR! Let me know if you’re participating in Alphabethon, and if so, what you’ll be reading! I’m super excited and I’m ready to have a great reading week. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you’re not participating, what are you reading for Halloween (slash any good thrillers)? I always love recommendations. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck to everyone participating! Don’t forget to follow the Twitter so you can keep up with sprints!

With love,

The Fall-time Cozy-time Tag


Hey guys! I love doing tags, but I’m absolutely terrible at actually doing and keeping up with them. Alas, I went through my drafts, and I found the Fall-time Cozy-time book tag! It looks like fun, and I’m glad to be finally doing it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much to Analee @ Book Snacks for tagging me! The original creator was Sam from Sam’s Nonsense, so kudos to her for these lovely prompts. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Continue reading

Spookathon TBR: Frighteningly Awesome!


Hey guys! I participated in Readathon by Zoe yesterday, but the Spookathon is nigh (it starts tomorrow, yikes!) so I thought I’d share my planned TBR with you! I’m super excited for this readathon and I am very pleased that there are only five prompts. I definitely think I can knock all of these out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s get into it, shall we? Continue reading

Fantastically realistic! | Turtles All the Way Down

Hey guys! I preordered Turtles All the Way Down, John Green’s new book, a couple of months ago, and I actually got my copy a day early! It was, indeed, signed, and of course I immediately had to dig in. Since it only came out a few days ago, I thought I’d review it (wow, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these) and just share my thoughts in general!

Turtles All the Way Down is an incredible, down-to-earth story about a 16-year-old girl named Aza who deals with a difficult mental illness in the form of thought spirals. Oh, and on the side, she’s trying to maintain her friendships, possibly fall in love (without kissing), and track down a missing billionaire. Continue reading

My October TBR: Awesome or just plain terrifying??

October TBR_.png

Hey guys, I’m back as promised! This is my first ever OFFICIAL monthly TBR. I’ve been wanting to do one of these for AGES, but I’ve never gotten around to it. I think that if I make one, though, I’ll stick to it. Otherwise I think I’d just, ah, ignore some of these. Oops? Alrighty then…

September Wrap-Up: Alphabethon, Apologies, and so many books!

So... I'm a bad blogger!.png

Hey guys! So, I disappeared for a bit there…

About a month, to be exact. I’m sorry about that! I needed a break, but I kept meaning to post something explaining an official hiatus, and I never got around to it. Boo. Not cool. To be honest, I got really into BookTube (still am) and I lost sight of what I really loved about blogging for a while there. Recently, however, I have rekindled my spark, and I am ready to dive back in! I do plan to take my blog back to its basics, which probably means 1-2 posts a week if I’m busy/uninspired, and some more reviews and tags. I have a lot of fun with those and I just psych myself up so much to do them that they become super intimidating. Anyway, that’s that. Let’s move on, shall we? Continue reading

My Summer Biannual Bibliothon Wrap-Up!


Hey guys! Sorry I disappeared for a while there! I actually got rather caught up in my reading and I started school about a week ago, so I just… yeah. Disappeared. But I’m back! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I realized I still haven’t done a few of my readathon wrap-ups, and as more just keep happening, I figured I’d catch up on a few in the next week or two here. Anyway, the Biannual Bibliothon actually happened a month ago (July 23-29), so it’s been a long time coming! I love this readathon, though, so I definitely wanted to share how I did with you all. ๐Ÿ™‚

My Bibib TBR consisted of 7 books, and while I didn’t expect to read all seven, I was hoping to read 4 or 5. Alas, I did not manage quite that many, but I still got a few, so I’m pleased with how it went! Continue reading
