(Borrowed from the Group) Hey bookworms I thought I’d do a Top 5 Wednesday today, because the topic was so interesting and some major brain work! For those of you who don’t know T5W is, it is a weekly feature … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! It’s time for day 3 even though it’s a bit late I was stuck in traffic for longer than I expected. If you missed Day 2, feel free to click on it and give it a perusing. Today’s … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! Sorry this is a bit late, but I’ve had a very busy week. I will tell you what is happening in a later post because I don’t want to jinx anything, but it’s all been good news! I … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I decided to post an update on how far I’ve gotten in this readathon because I need a distraction. Why the need for a distraction, you ask? Well… I have an interview tomorrow! My first one EVER! Yes, I’m 24 and have never had a job. My life has always been school and books. Especially the last five because I wanted out of here, but unfortunately plans got delayed or slightly changed depending on how you want to look at it. Now what makes me more nervous is this job contacted me through one of the sites where my resume was posted, and not through the Bureau of Vocational Rehab… So I have no clue if they won’t discriminate against me for my disability… For instance, my shoes are tennis shoes because it’s the only shoe that offers my ankle support. They aren’t exactly business attire with the rest of my interview clothes. Yes I know it’s illegal to discriminate, but let’s face it the world isn’t perfect and it still happens. Now this isn’t to say this will happen to the company I am interviewed by.
It’s just stuff like this that makes me hyper aware of my Cerebral Palsy. It is part of the reason I get it out of the way first when meeting people. So they can get over solely seeing my disability and instead see me and what I am able to do. I pretty much see myself like my peers. My CP is only a small fraction of me. It doesn’t DEFINE me. If your interested in hearing more of my thoughts of why it doesn’t please let me know in the comments below. Also I am only speaking for myself and not others with my disability because there are various types and degrees of it.
So bookworms to keep my hands busy because I don’t have the ingredients to bake, I decided to do a formal update on my reading progress. Any who hope you didn’t get bored with the mini nervous rant. Onto the books!
Genrethon: Day 3 Update
Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
This book helped me some, but it wasn’t as cathartic as I hoped it’d be! I did give it a 4.5 (5 on goodreads) 5 Stars on Goodreads. I really loved the magical realism of the narrator, but be forewarned this book has triggering moments. It did make me think at the very least.
Hana-Kimi Vol 1 by Hisaya Nakajo, David Ury
This was a reread from Junior High reading it via my Nook since the first read was a friend copy. This was one of the first mangas I ever read! It was still as cute and funny still but seemed a little slower this time around. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars. If you’re into Twelfth Night or retellings of it and looking for a manga to read this one is for you! =)
Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
I am currently on chapter 27 and I’m really loving Simon’s Oreo diet! Seriously I want to eat everything he described! I’m really liking the amount of details and how I can see every setting. It is nice to feel as if I could walk through them! I plan to hopefully be done with it tonight.
Loyalties by Wendi Kelly and Deborah Dorchak
So I was wrong on my page count I have 300 pages left. I plan to unwind with this one after I finish Simon because my phone will need a break.
Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler
I will be reading this tonight after my Nook charges. I hope it’s a good book to calm my nerves for tomorrow.
The Beast Within by Serena Valentino
This one will be read after I finish reading Loyalties because I am trying to read only one book in a format at a time.
Fated by Alyson Noel
The same after I finish Under the Lights. I am curious to fall into another paranormal world by Alyson Noel.
Well that’s it for today’s post bookworms! How are you doing in the readathon or just your reading week? Do you have any interview tips for me? If you want to know more about how I feel about CP let me know in the comments down below. Happy Reading!
Hey Bookworms! I’m back with another TBR even though TBR Takedown isn’t over it’s okay to overlap things every now and again. So the next readathon I am taking part in is the Genre-Thon! Which is hosted by 4 lovely booktubers: Brittany, Joce, Kristyn, and Lauren! I will leave the announcement video down below so you all know the rules before I post my TBR:
Falling into Place by Amy Zhang -Contemporary
The Beast Within by Serena Valentino- Retelling
Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli- LGBT
Loyalties by Wendi Kelly and Deborah Dorchak- Urban Fantasy
Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler- LGBT
Fated by Alyson Noel- YA Parnormal
Hana Kimi Vol 1 by Hisaya Nakajo, David Ury (Translator)- Manga
Any who bookworms that is my TBR! Yes it overlaps a bit with TBR Takedown because the day overlaps and it may be overly ambitious just a bit… We all do whatever it takes to motivate ourselves to cut down our TBR. The only day I won’t be reading is the 16th because I will be at the RT Convention! Eep! Are you participating in the Readathon? What’s on your TBR? Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments even if it is just to let me know I am insane for my ambition. Happy Reading and I hope your sunday is a good one!
Hey bookworms! So I was thinking about what would be the best way to immerse myself back into the book blogger world is to throw myself into a readathon! This is the first one of the month. TBR Takedown 3.5 … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! It’s finally time for my first non ARC review of 2016! I know it has been a bit, but with the move I’ve discussed why they didn’t happen earlier. So hopefully you all can forgive me, and we … Continue reading
