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. I’ve joined the team as one of the hosts (which is super exciting), so you’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 Michelle’s post with all of the hosts and other details as well. 🙂

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. 🙂 Alright, on to the TBR! Continue reading

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

I last-minute decided to join the #7in7readathon – #NOREGRETS

7 in 7 Readathon 2017

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

My #TheReadingQuest TBR!

The Reading Quest Sign Up Post

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!

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 ❤
