Hey Bookworms! Guess What…? Yep… I’ve decided to lose my mental state even more and join the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! For those of you that don’t know what this readathon is: It is exactly what the title implies. It … Continue reading
Hey bookworms it’s the day after the readathon (as I’m writing this…), so I thought I’d do a wrap-up! I’ve been horrible at not doing wrapups. The last two times I did this readathon I’ve gotten interrupted and this one … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! I wanted to do a quick post on how I am participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon again! Now I’m not prepared with snacks because this was a last minute decision. My plans fell through for tomorrow, so … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I lived through the readathon! Now let’s see if I can live through these next 2.5 weeks of school… I think this weekend has helped me quite a bit with destressing. So to be honest I slept in with the early start time, and fell asleep a bit in between. So I only stayed up, 19 hours and my reading didn’t go as planned. I finished 2 out of the 4 books running short of 50 pages on the third when time ran out. These are the two I finished!
1. One Day by David Nicholls
I finally finished my audiobook. I adore this story and it was a reread for me, but the format of this audiobook was very annoying because it was organized in tracks instead of chapters. This story made my emotions crazy, but I adore it. As a book I give it a 5 out of 5 stars, but as an audiobook it is a 3 out of 5 stars love the narrator, but seriously the formatting and pausing between words drove me mental
2. Pivot Point by Kasie West
I loved the plot twists in this story the use of a sort of love triangle, and the use of super powers was so good. I think if I hadn’t finished it so late the end would have shocked me more. I loved the hints not being totally predictable, and that they kept me guessing. This book was a 4 out of 5 stars for me!
Sadly bookworms I didn’t reach my goal, but I feel proud I finished these books! I really loved participating in a readathon, and I want to do more in the summer! So if you know of one that takes place at any point of May-August I would appreciate it! How did you guys do? What did you read this weekend?? Let me know what books have put you on the verge of feels or kept you guessing! Happy reading and have a good week! =)
Hey bookworms! So tonight I will be posting a few posts tonight, hope it isn’t too much! Posting is the only thing keeping me sane right now… Anywho this post will be about me participating in the Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon! I know I tried to do this before, but it didn’t exactly go smoothly because we had unexpected construction on our shower. So here I go again! For those of you who don’t know what this read-a-thon is: it is an international read-a-thon that takes place twice a year (if you need more info I will link it here). The start times depend on your time zones. My start time is 5 am! Sooo early! I am up for it though, and being as active as possible as I can with a sister having a fractured fibula. I want to participate in twitter and knock out some of the books I have been reading for months because of school. I finished my biggest project and my latest test isn’t posted until next week, so I have free time this weekend and I am hoping I’m not too late to sign up because I’ve had a very busy/hard past few weeks (I will participate unofficially). So here is what I will be reading!
1. One Day by David Nicholls
So since my time start is a little early for me I figured I’d start with an audio book! Audiobooks have been a thing with me lately and although I like the narrator the formatting of this book isn’t the best because it is formatted by tracks not chapters, so it is slower and longer than it should be.
2. Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
This is a reread because I am watching the show and slowly working my way through the series, but the show is different in who they kept alive, so to remind myself a reread is necessary with a long series, but it has me giggling and laughing. I am half way through it now, so I plan to finish it tomorrow.
3. Pivot Point by Kasie West
This is another book I am half-way through and a gift from my book buddy The Paige-Turner, now because this is a paper back I tend to read them when I have the time because of my hands sweating and I don’t want to wear at them too much.
4. The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
If I don’t get tempted to finish this tonight this is what I will finish the day off with. I just have had a craving to give this series another shot.
So bookworms that is my TBR for this read-a-thon, and I may add more to this! I want to participate in more read-a-thon’s over the summer, so if you know any I would appreciate it so much if you shared them. Books I think will help with everything I am going through lately. I wish all of you who are participating in this the best of luck! Tweet me and I will cheer you on as well! My twitter is: @CKReads! Happy reading bookworms! I hope you all have a good reading nevertheless! Let me know if you’ve read any of these or comment twitter! I am always looking for more reading buddies!
