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.
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.
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”
This post is going to be on the books that I had high expectations for and then once reading it, it let me down. You know those books that sounds like they will be amazing and you get so excited to read it. Then you read it and it was nothing that you expected and not in a good way. Now let’s just get on to the list.
1. Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle
GoodReads Rating: 3 stars
Note: After thinking about it after giving my original rating I think it is actually 2 stars. Continue reading “Books that didn’t Match My Expectations”
I have a question for you, have you ever read the first book in a series and then months maybe even years later you have yet to finish the rest of the books in that series? Well, that may have happened to me one or a few times. So, this post will be on book series that I have started a while ago and still have not finished. Now, let’s get into this list!
1) Divergent by Veronica Roth
I read Divergent back in 2014 then I read Insurgent in 2015, I really enjoyed both books. Now, with Allegiant I started it in 2016 and never finished it. Honestly, I was spoiled on the ending of Allegiant so that was part of why I didn’t finish it. As well as I just lost interest in the story. At this point in time, I have no plans on finishing Allegiant. Continue reading “Book Series I Have Not Finished”
In today’s post, I will be discussing what I read in August and then talk about what I have planned for September. If you want to find out what I am up to with my reading check out my Instagram account @wait_what2016 .
Sadly, in August I did not read much but I did better than what I read in July.I didn’t even finish one book in July…yeah I know. What I did read was The Crown by: Kiera Cass, I thought this was a good book and I liked how it ended. I was just not able to get used to the new point of view since I was used to reading from America’s perspective the first three books. The other book that I read was Sailor Moon Vol. 7 I enjoyed it but, I feel like I will be taking a break from reading the rest just so I don’t finish the series super soon.
