My Summer Biannual Bibliothon Wrap-Up!

The

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! 😉 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. 🙂

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

Summer Bibib Day 4 Blog Challenge WINNER!

Summer Biannual Bibliothon 2017 Day 4

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 StoriesLindsay 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 ❤

Hey guys! This is a bit late (it’s the seventh already?!?), but I thought with everything that’s happened over this summer, it would be fun to do a wrap-up! I don’t believe I’ve ever done one of these, as usually I feel like most of the content I would mention is already on my blog, but I think a lot of things have happened recently and I’d LOVE to share them with you. 🙂 Let’s get to it, shall we?

Now, both yesterday and when my challenge was announced on Instagram, I included a few questions, just to spark your creativity. But basically, the overall idea is to simply talk about:

Biannual Bibliothon Day 3: The Blogger Book Tag and Villain’s Synopsis!

Summer Biannual Bibliothon 2017 Day 3

Hey guys! It’s day 3 of the Biannual Bibliothon! Woooo! Yesterday I posted a review for the day 2 blogging challenge, but I missed the first day because I was participating in the 24 in 48 readathon. So I thought, what better way to catch up than doing a two-in-one? First the challenge for day 1, and then the challenge for today. Day one’s challenge was the Blogger Book Tag, hosted by Nana @ 4 Teen Liars! Let’s just go for it, shall we? Continue reading

24 in 48 AND Summer Bibib Readathons???

July 2017 24in48 and Biannual Bibliothon Readathons
Designed by Freepik

That’s right, folks, its that time of year again- the time when the sun decides it wants to murder our skin (unless you’re an Aussie, sorry guys), more books than I could read in my life are published, and ALL OF THE READATHONS COME OUT TO PLAY.

If you don’t know what a readathon is, it’s both supremely awesome and incredibly, devastatingly difficult. Basically, a bunch of people get together, usually on some kind of social media platform, and read as much as you can within a certain amount of time.

Now, my favorite two readathons happen to be overlapping this year. Oh joy. BUT I LOVE THEM SO MUCH HOW COULD I CHOOSE. Continue reading

The things people search for on the internet!

The Strange Things People Search For On the Internet.png

Hello out there!

I know I’ve been doing a lot of reviews (and very sporadically, I might add), so I thought I’d liven things up a bit…. With some search terms! I’ve seen quite a few people do this (particularly Cait @ Paper Fury comes to mind), and it’s always funny. There are a lot, and some of them are fairly practical, so these are just the best I’ve seen so far!

reading-

Um, yes. We do quite a lot of that here.

thank you for listening-

Awe, I’m glad I turned up in this one! I don’t say it enough, but I always try to thank you guys for everything. You’re all so amazing. The book blogosphere wouldn’t be the same without you!

marcel-

I think there was ONE gif on this. ONE.

ya books guaranteed to bring you joy-

None of those here. No, we tend to lean towards the ones with lots of death. And pain. And sobbing. It’s glorious. Continue reading
