My 24 Hour Read-a-thon

aaAAAAHhhhH!

For the first time this year, I’ve fallen behind on my Goodreads Reading Challenge—and not just by one book, but by two whole books *faints*.

All drama aside though, I need to get back to where I was two months ago when I was three books ahead of my goal. I don’t like playing catch up, especially because I’m already such a slow reader. It’s been a while since I posted, so I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone by //live// blogging my attempt to make some type of progress in my life reading goal. I’m aiming to finally finish The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey and knock out some other book I’ll choose later (spoiler alert: it’s Warcross by Marie Lu) in 24 hours.

(//it technically won’t be live by the time I publish this post, but who’s paying attention?)

THE TBR

  1. The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey – This book is a prequel to The Girl With All the Gifts. It follows a team of scientists and soldiers who travel across a post-apocalyptic Britain in the search for any breakthroughs that can save the crumbling human civilization from the hungry (aka zombie) pandemic. 
  2. Warcross by Marie Lu –This book is about teenage hacker, Emika Chen, who is hired by famed video game creator and businessman, Hideo Tanaka, to track down a criminal who poses a threat to his world-renowned virtual reality game, Warcross.

And with that, Let’s begin!  Continue reading “My 24 Hour Read-a-thon”

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving 😄!

Every book I read is a unique experience. Some of these experiences are memorable for being enlightening and many simply from the joy and comfort they brought to me.

The Fall Book Tag

November has just begun and (I) people have already started gearing up for Winter and Christmas. In order to counteract all the excitement for the holiday season and reorient (myself) everyone to the time, I decided to do The Fall Book Tag.

I was tagged by Dani from Perspective of a Writer (thank you!); She’s a sweet girl and her blog is full awesome content, so you should give it a look.  Continue reading “The Fall Book Tag”

Attempting My First, Personal Read-a-thon

It’s 6:30 p.m. on October 27, 2017, marking the beginning of my first attempt at a personal read-a-thon.

This endeavor was inspired by Reagan from PeruseProject‘s video in which she has her own 24-hour read-a-thon to make up for all the read-a-thons she missed.

Since this is my first time trying anything like this, I’m just going to see how much I can read and collect some baseline data. I’m a slow reader, so I’m expecting to read about 500 pages. I’ll make actual concrete plans of action and goals for future read-a-thons I do.  Continue reading “Attempting My First, Personal Read-a-thon”

Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book that Deals with First Love

Book Traveling Thursday is weekly meme where you pick a book that fits the theme chosen by the Goodread’s group. Then, you share its different book covers from around the world according to several categories.

In light of the upcoming holiday dedicated all to ♫ looove ♫, aka Valentine’s Day (aka Single Awareness Day), the theme for this week is a book that deals with first love. I chose the book The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne. It’s not exclusively about first love, but there is a first love aspect (Goodreads).
