Hello reader fam! How are you? Snowing and sunshine in the Midlands (UK), so got the fire on and eating some healthy, nutritionally balanced dinner! I’m on a roll with a healthy diet, but more on this some other time … Continue reading
Happy Sunday my dears! I’ve been a little quiet these days as I was really busy and yesterday was my birthday so barely had time for Social Media. I’ve had a great time and I really enjoyed spending time with … Continue reading
Hi guys! It seems to that I am trying to catch-up with things, but I am finally updating you on what I have planned to read this November, but since it is already mid-November I thought it would be a … Continue reading
Good afternoon my lovelies! I have been a little absent from here lately as I’ve been working a lot and also getting ready to move to our new house as well as working on my Doctorate application for this year. … Continue reading
I’ve had such a crazy time last week trying to juggle working full time, doing the Book-tube-a-thon, and going away Friday to Sunday for a Hen party, and just now I found the time to sit down and write this. I am so behind schedule with a lot of things, so I am hoping that this weekend I can spend it in a more productive manner!
From my Booktube-a-Thon list there were some challenges that I managed to do, some I didn’t. I did read 7 books, however I didn’t get the chance to read outside as the weather was horrendous in the UK. I also went away for the weekend for a hen party with only my kindle, so I managed to read 3 books during that time (Don’t know how, I swear!).
The 2017 Reading Challenges & my choices:
1/ Read a book with a person on the cover – The Secret Circle by L.J.Smith✅
2/ Read a hyped book – Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon ❌
3/ Finish a book in one day – Vampire Academy graphic novel by Richelle Mead and Emma Vieceli ✅
4/ Read about a character that is very different from you – I am number four by Pitacus Lore ❌
5/ Finish a book completely outdoors – Realm of Mindweavers- Book One: Tales of Golmeira by Marianne Ratcliffe ❌
6/ Read a book you bought because of the cover – Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick ✅
7/ Read seven books – The summoning by Kelley Armstrong ✅
- Instead of the three books that I did not get a chance to read, I read the King trilogy by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff.
I wish I would’ve managed to do it all, do the Instagram challenges and all of that, but I am quite pleased that I have managed to read 7 books in 7 days against all odds! I suppose that at the end of the day I must be happy that I have accomplished that.
How did your Booktub-a-thon go? How many books did you manage to read?
It’s that time again… and I’m late…. but here it is, finally, my July TBR!
The fearless by Emma Pass. I picked this one up because I totally loved the cover. I know, I’m shallow, but look how pretty it is! Anyway, don’t know much about this book, but seems to be the a sort of post-disaster book, maybe with some zombies. Don’t know, but I will find out!
Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns by John Green. I finished reading the Fault in our stars and I loooooooved it! So in the spirit of that, I have added these on as well.
Lost boys by Lilian Carmine. This is another handsome book cover (hah!) and the blurb was very interesting, promising an angsty, dark, paranomal romance? Girl meets Ghost? Yeah, right up my alley.
The night circus by Erin Morgenstern which seems to be about a circus (duh) that arrives in town without warning. This circus is only open at night and it promises, to me at least, some dark and wonderous creatures. Fingers crossed!
And last but not least, the novelisation of Wonder Woman by Nancy Holder. Oh boy, I could not resist picking that one up! I saw the movie and totally loved it. I am a huge fan of Wonder Woman and I am looking forward to read this whilst imagining Gal Gadot as the character.
This is the official list as I know that unofficially I will be picking more books and reading them because I am a complete and utter bookwhore! There, I said it!
If you have any recommendations for me, please comment down below and let me know if there is anything that you think that I might enjoy. I love receiving your recommendations.
Also, if you keep an eye out I’ll be soon posting a pool so you can choose some of the books I will read next month!
