Hey bookworms! Hope your weekend went well! Sorry I haven’t been active these last few days… I have been running into issues with school and finding out all these issues has been from the internet. So hence my avoiding my computer… Figures my last semester of my undergrad that I tried so hard to make run smoothly did the opposite. On that note I was looking for something fun to cheer me up! Now what is fun for a book blogger? A Readathon of course! I had been looking for one for August and stumbled across it when I saw a TBR for it on youtube. I have done the Bout of Books before, and had lots of fun before, so why not give it another go! If you don’t know what Bout of Books is:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Now that I’ve given you the neccessary info, so you can join the fun! Let’s decide what my goals and books to read will be because this is totally last minute! *blushes slightly*
Bout of Books Goals
So goals! Something I have never been the best at keeping! Let’s face it I set goals and then get distracted from them easily… I figured though setting goals will get me back in the school set of mind because I am going to try to be better at time management my last semester! So that being said I will have a goal of 5 books AND keeping track daily of how many pages I read daily. That is not going to include the audiobooks because the ones I do listen to most of them I do not have physical copies of. I will list the number of chapters listened to though! So what will I try to read this week? I will list a few that are on my mind now:
1. Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern
I am close to the end of this book, so if I don’t finish it tonight I want to finish it tonight. I definitely want to finish it by Monday!
2. Princess Mia by Meg Cabot
I have 80ish pages left and since it is almost Midnight this will probably be the first book I finish. I can really relate to Mia in this one, so I can already guess that I will probably give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
3. Forever Princess by Meg Cabot
I am almost finished reading Princess Mia, so why not add this one onto my TBR. Thank god I found Scribd. I really recommend this site to bookworms on a budget. No I am not paid to promote them. I just post about them a lot because I wish I would’ve found them sooner, and hopefully I will help another bookworm do so!
4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Another library book due this week! I need to finish this by Friday, so I know this will be the one I for sure finish during this readathon!
5. Vampire Game Vol 1 by Judal
Gotta have a manga to break things up, so hopefully it will be a good reason to finish this book!
6. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck
I am falling back in love with this book again! I am traveling through this book which is great because I am going stir crazy not having been anywhere during the break. I am slow on it because I got distracted by Mia’s problems but I drift to it through out the day
7. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling
A childhood read if I get too weighed down or momentarily bored with the others. Plus I’d rather go to Hogwarts than worry about my school stress!
8. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
This will most likely be my next audio book read after I finish Thanks for the Memories. I am really hoping to love this book although if I do not love the narrator I will switch to the copy of the e-book that I own.
9. Broken by Kelley Armstrong
This is on my monthly TBR and I really at least want to get into this book! I miss Clay and Elena!
Guess what Bookworms?! I am happy to say I got approved for an ARC on Netgalley. I also figured out how to get it to send to my kindle apps! I feel so smart to have figured that out! I really am horribly untech savvy. Which was why I was beyond nervous to request it, but I figured it out! Like my mom says to the kids at her school (she’s a secretary) “Kiss your brain” I was so proud that I bested the tech in my life! Anywho I am beyond shocked I was approved! I am huge Oncer fan, so I really want to try and get some of this done by school.
Yes my bookworm friends, I know I have my goal set at 5! I am such a mood reader lately, so to have options lately is my best option. Not including the fact is I am a book polygamist as well! So that is it for now bookworms! Are you participating in this readathon? Let me know and link me your TBR’s. If you want to see updates as I read you can follow me on Twitter @CKReads. Good luck with your reading week, and especially if you’re already back to school! Happy reading!
Hey bookworms! Happy Mother’s Day to you who are celebrating it this weekend! This weekend has been a busy one for me, so I stalled on my Sociology exam. I have to do it tomorrow, so yay… I also plan on starting my Theory exam on Monday and hoping to finish it by Wednesday because I want to turn in my textbooks by Thursday! So if I don’t post much next week it’s because I am trying to earn my down time! These are times where being so hard on myself for my grades is a pain… Anywho since I may not be posting a lot next week I thought I’d let you all know what I got to reading and finishing this weekend before I get into my Bout of Books Goals as always links to the Goodreads and sites are in the titles.
Weekend Wrap Up
Finished: 1 Novel & 3 Graphic Novels
1. The Heir by Kiera Cass
Okay, so I finished this finally and I wasn’t going to review this originally, but once I got to the last 100 pages and that end I feel I have to! This will have spoilers because I just need to talk about it! So if you want to know what I felt and which boys are my top choices look forward to it and I will try to have it up by Friday night!
2. Pokemon Adventures Vol. 4 by Hidenori Kusaka & Mato (illustrator)
This got a 5 out of 5 stars and I adored it! I am becoming more of a pokemon lover from these Mangas it gives me more of a story than the games. What can I say I love a good back story and already want more of them!
3.Pokemon Black and White Vol. 3 by Hidenori Kusaka
This one got a 4 out of 5 just was a little too quick at the end and before the gym battle. I did like this because I love N, White, and Black is slowly becoming one of my favorites. This gen is one of my favorites and favorite game story line just don’t like how short these ones are!
4. Pokemon Black and White Vol. 4 by Hidenori Kusaka
Again the shortness and the cliff this one ended on led me to a 4 out of 5 stars. I definitely recommend the Black and White mangas for anyone who loves Pokemon and needs a quick read to break things up for any readathon or are in a slump!
In The Middle Of:
1. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
I wish I could’ve gotten more done on Thursday waiting at the Doctor’s, but I forgot my headphones. I got to chapter 11 which means I have 16 chapters to go! I love the concept and the hints that are given as they are beginning to play out. I also love the use of Greek Mythology! I am excited to finish, but will be sorry to see it end, and would love to find more with this narrator!
Bout of Books Goals&TBR
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
For those of you who didn’t read my WWW Wednesday I am very happy to say I will be participating in Bout of Books! I am excited and nervous to do this for the first time, but hoping to get a lot of reading done! So depending on how much I am able to get done on my Literary Theory Exam each day until Wednesday my goal for this Readathon is 5-7 books! Now besides finishing Cruel Beauty, 2 of my currently reading that I listed last week on my WWW Wednesday, and a few graphic novels I hope to get at the library on Monday this is my TBR for the week in no particular order:
1. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
If the readathon helps me get anything done I hope most of all it helps me finish this!
2. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
This was the first book I received in my personal Uppercase subscription box and I really want to finish this one before my next one comes in!
3. Behind the Scenes by Dahlia Adler
I know I am normally not a big contemporary fan, but the summary from the sequel seemed interesting when I requested it from Netgalley. Thing is I did not know it was the sequel when I requested it, so I have to start with this one before I can read and review the second one! I hope it is an interesting and quick read!
4. Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler
This is the one that pulled that the synopsis made me hit request before ditzly clicking request before checking to see if it was a number in a series. I am excited though to be reviewing my first book from Netgalley!
5. Beyond Neverland by Heather Killough-Walden
I read the first book a few years ago, but Peter Pan is my favorite fairy-tale and I will read any retelling. Summer to me feels like the perfect time to read this!
Well bookworms that is my TBR for this readathon! I hope it isn’t too ambitious, and that my goal isn’t too crazy! I really did enjoy the vibe of my first readathon. It gave me a sense of pride and I am hoping this one does the same! If you guys are participating feel free to tweet me: here! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and mother’s day! Now I am off to bed, so I can rest before tackling my Sociology Exam! Be safe and happy reading! I wish you all the best of luck!
PS: For all you Boy Meets World fans even if you don’t watch Girl Meets World I encourage you to watch Season 2 premiere on the 11th all week at 8 pm. Why am I plugging this? I love Will Friedle (Eric Matthews) and I recently found out this is the first time he has been back on screen because of his struggle with anxiety! He is such a brave person and after watching a youtubers support of him and finding this out I want to support him to. I have been struggling with issues myself and Boy Meets World has got my mood better! I will include the videos for you to decide yourself. Tweet during the episodes with #ProudofWill. I feel we all need support especially when chasing our passions! We are all human afterall =)
