https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_banners/893892590986252289/1501955829/600x200

Hey guys! I’m currently participating in… A lot of readathons, but as some of you may know, I am planning to participate in the Hogwarts Cramathon! It’s a 24 hour readathon, happening on the 18th, with challenges on the days leading up to it. I announced it in my list of August readathons and made a tentative TBR (which I already think will change) as well! Anyhoo, the first two challenges are up (as, after all, it is the second day of challenges), and they look super fun, so I figured I’d put my two cents in! Here goes! Continue reading

Two disappointments in one day? Aw, man!

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

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 24 in 48 Read-a-thon Wrap-Up!

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

Down the TBR Hole: This is working!!! Eek!

Down the TBR Hole

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Down the TBR Hole is a (very) bookish meme, originally created by Lia @ย 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 youโ€™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! 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s get to it, shall we?
