As you can see in the picture above I completed four of the seven challenges. I think I did a pretty decent job even though I do wish I was able to read more. Continue reading “BookTube-A-Thon 2018 Wrap-Up”

BookCon Day 1: Experience and Haul

 

Note! This is a re-upload. I somehow moved this to drafts so I had to publish it again. I don’t even know how that happened. SMH.  This was originally published June 2017. 

Hello there!

    This past weekend I was able to attend BookCon in NYC, thanks to my friend Carleny for the early birthday gift. Carleny also has a book blog called Warning: Spoiler Alert check it out after you read this post. This post will be about my experience at BookCon and a haul on the things I got. Now, let’s get into it.

    

sat june 3rd

    The first day of BookCon Carleny and I decided to get to the Javits Center by 8 am ( the show floor opened at 10 am). We know that people like to get their really early to be one of the first people on the show floor. So, I got up at 6 am and was out of my house by 7 am. Carleny and I got to the Javits at about 8:10 am. Guys, by that time there was already so many people there it was insane. Then we had to wait for the show floor to open at 10 am. After so much waiting they were finally letting us in, Carleny and I were on the show floor at about 10:15 am. The first thing we did was search for the booth where First In Line would be because we had received an email to go to their booth to pick up a Underlined Swag tote with a surprise box full of bookish fun. Let me tell you we had a little trouble finding the booth turned out they were in the Penguin booth. Continue reading “BookCon Day 1: Experience and Haul”

Read-A-Thon by Zoe Results

Hello there!

This past Saturday, March 3rd Zoe from ReadbyZoe on YouTube hosted her fifth 24-hour read-a-thon. In this post, I will let you guys know my experience participating in Zoe’s read-a-thon. Hope you enjoy.

Saturday, March 3rd, 12:00 AM

It hits midnight and I am so excited to start reading. This time around Zoe didn’t set a theme for the read-a-thon so I made up my own theme. Which was to read the library books I currently have out. The first book I picked up was The Bad Seed by William March. Like I have said before I learned about this book from Pretty Little Liars Season 1 Episode 18 The Badass Seed. On PLL they are putting on the play of The Bad Seed, the plot of it sounded so interesting I decided to read the book. Continue reading “Read-A-Thon by Zoe Results”

Read-A-Thon by Zoe

Hello there!

Yesterday, December 9th 2017 I participated in the 24 hour readathon hosted by ReadbyZoe on YouTube. This post I will let you guys know how it went. Now let’s get into it.

I stated the readathon at 1:30 AM by reading One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake. I started ODT in November and I was halfway into the book. The goal was to get a good a good amount of it read because I have been reading ODT for far too long. So I read from 1:30 Am until 5 Am. I ended up reading about 70ish pages which was a really good dent.  At 5 AM I decided to go to sleep because I was really tired. Continue reading “Read-A-Thon by Zoe”

Reading Update!

What’s up guys!

I’m trying a new greeting, let me know what you think. Okay, guys I know you are probably looking for my review of The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz. Sadly, you will have to wait for later this week for that review. That is due to the fact that I have not finished the book yet. It has nothing to do with the book I am just finding it hard to find Continue reading “Reading Update!”

BookCon Day 2: Experience and Haul

Hello there,

    One week later and I am finally posting the second part to my BookCon post. This will be all about day two let’s just get into it.

Sunday june 4th    After the first day, Carleny and I realized that if we wanted to get the One Dark Throne Arc we had to get to the Javits Center earlier than we did on day one. So we agreed to meet up on Sunday at 7 am. This meant that we had to wake up at 5 am and leave by 6 am. Carleny had to leave her house around 5:45 am because she lives feather from Manhattan than I do. Early that morning I get a text from Carleny that says “I’m up, don’t make me call you!” and I responded with “I’m up!”. After such a long day on Saturday and then having to be up at 5 Am we were not in the most chipper mood to be up that early. I was on the train by a little after 6 am and I was shocked at a number of people on the train that early on a Sunday ha ha. I met up with Carleny and we were on the line at about 7:05 Am. Since we got to the Javits Center earlier on Sunday we had to line up outside since the queue hall didn’t open until 8 Am. Continue reading “BookCon Day 2: Experience and Haul”
