Hey guys! A few days ago I posted a TBR for The Reading Quest as well as the 7 in 7 readathon, and I am pleased to update you with GOOD NEWS! (Well, mostly) I finished the last 100 pages of Uprooted (which I was reading for #MakeMeRead) on the 14th (first day of 7 in 7, second day of TRQ), and then was able to read the first 70 pages of Book of Shadows before I went to bed. I finished the last 100 pages of BoS today (the 15th) and then was able to knock out Ronit & Jamil in an hour, so I am now 2 books down for both! Unfortunately, I didn’t really love either one, so I figured I’d combine them both in a double review for you guys! Let’s just get started, shall we? Continue reading
Hey guys! Yesterday I posted my #TheReadingQuest TBR, and I mentioned that I had decided to join the 7 in 7 read-a-thon last minute. I had heard of it before but wasn’t planning on joining until it was 2 am on the 11th and all of a sudden I was creating a TBR. Whoops?
If you don’t know, the 7 in 7 readathon is basically all about reading seven things in seven days. They don’t even have to be books! It can be books, short stories, anthologies, magazines, graphic novels, comics, anything, but the goal is to read seven of them. It’s hosted by Ashley @ Said the Story, and she’s enlisted 6 other BookTubers to host some Twitter sprints throughout the week as well! It’s extremely relaxed and it’s just meant to be fun and a great way to get those reading juices flowing!
Alright, let’s get into my TBR! I’ve picked seven (mostly short) books that I aim to read (obviously), but I have a few alternates that I may end up reading instead, depending on my mood! (Covers will be linked to their respective Goodreads pages!) Continue reading
Hey guys! A couple of days ago, I posted a list of all of the August read-a-thons I’ll be participating in, and I mentioned that I would be participating in The Reading Quest and also posting a TBR before it started! Aaaaand here I am! To start, here’s a little run-down on what this whole thing’s all about:
The Reading Quest, hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight, is a month-long readathon based on a video game format, in which you attempt to complete prompts for your quest to gain experience and HP!
In this challenge, you’ll be embarking on a journey to conquer your TBR pile through a series of stages. You’ll read new stories, gain experience, and level up a character of your choosing.
The quest will take place between Sunday 13th August to Sunday 10th September, 2017. All adventurers are encouraged to register their interest in the sign up form in Aentee’s original post, which will be open until Sunday 13th August.
CW of Read, Think, Ponder is the amazing artist behind all of the character illustration provided for the readathon! Make sure to give her lots of love; you can find her on Instagram, Twitter, and of course, her fabulous blog!
Hey guys! I announced about a month ago that I was going to be participating in the 24 in 48 readathon, I did it, I had a fabulous time, and then I put off the wrap-up for ages. Well, here it is!
If you don’t know what the 24 in 48 readathon is, it’s essentially a readathon that takes place over the course of 48 hours. During that time, you attempt to read for 24 hours! If you want to know more, you can check out the official 24 in 48 website!
I personally think I did awesome, which I’m really happy with! I finished four books in their entirety, read about half of two different books, and just barely started another. Let’s just get into it, shall we? Continue reading
Yikes, I haven’t done a Down the TBR Hole in, what… Almost a month? Yikes! I definitely need to get back into the swing of things. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
It’s awesome how well this meme is working for me! I’ve gotten rid of so many books, and the Spring Cleaning Book Tag that I did a week ago definitely helped as well. 🙂
Okay, to be fair, I keep adding a gazillion-trillion books. But I’ve stayed under 700 and the number is still going down more than up! If you want to check out my last Down the TBR Hole, you can do so here. 🙂
Down the TBR Hole is a (very) bookish meme, originally created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. She has since combed through all of her TBR (very impressive) and diminished it by quite a bit, but the meme is still open to others! How to participate:
- Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
- Order by Ascending Date Added
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or let it go?
Hey guys! I was one of the blogger hosts for the Biannual Bibliothon, so I’m back (two weeks later) to announce the winner! My challenge to you all was to talk about a book that you rated three stars or less. (If you’d like to see my original post about it, you can do so here.) I am happy to tell you that I received quite a few entries, and they were all super fun and cool to read! I hope that everyone enjoyed writing them as much as I did reading them. 🙂 Of course, if your post isn’t listed here, it definitely doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. I had some tough choices to make! This is a huge thank you from me to everyone who participated; I really appreciated it! Alright, without further ado:
The winner is…
Megan from Under the Book Cover!
Megan talked about six different books, and gave awesome answers and explanations for each. I recognized a lot of the books she mentioned, and the entire post just seemed very well-thought-out and put together. I really enjoyed reading it, it was well-laid-out, and overall, it was just wonderfully done! I definitely recommend checking it out, which you can do here.
There were so many great entries, so of course I had to pick some honorable mentions:
- Libby @ Coloured Leaves– Libby talked about a controversial book and TV show, Thirteen Reasons Why, and gave some insight into why it’s seen as harmful.
- Nandini @ Unputdownable Books– Nandini talked about a book she was sent for review that she’s still on the fence about! She made an excellent explanation of why she rates books higher, and what low ratings mean to authors.
- Lindsay @ Singer of Stories– Lindsay talked about a book she rated one star as well as one she rated two stars. One of them is Stalking Jack the Ripper, which is pretty popular, and I appreciated seeing a different opinion on it!
And there you have it! I love the Biannual Bibliothon and always have lots of fun with it, so it was super exciting to learn that they were going to have blog challenges, and of course, to be invited to be a host! Thanks so much to all of the BookTube hosts for arranging everything and welcoming us bloggers into the circle! XD I had such a great time, and I can’t wait for the next round!
Lots of Love, Amy ❤
