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! It’s time for another Read-A-Thon post! Yes I am a bit addicted to them, but it’s a great way to jump into the community. This lovely Read-A-Thon was created by Bookss101 and hosted by many other lovely booktubers! … Continue reading
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! 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!
