Here is what I ended up reading for my 24 Hour Read-A-Thon last Saturday.
1. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
This was the first book I read in the 24 hours and I was so excited to read this since I have watched a lot of movie versions of this story. I would have to say that most movies are fairly accurate compared to the book. Of course they are not the same but from the ones I have seen they have get most of the plot the same.
In the hopes of getting as much reading done by the end of the year ( which is a little over a week away), I have decided to do a 24-hour read-a-thon on Saturday the 22nd. In the past 24 hr read-a-thons starting at midnight doesn’t always work out so well, so I will start reading at noon est and read until 11:59 am the next day. I will also defiantly get some sleep in.
What I Plan on Reading
1- Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han
The last book in the To all the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy. I loved the first two books so I am excited to see how this story ends.
Here is a new review for you guys. This review is on the book Rule by Ellen Goodlett. Want to know more about it? Well, keep on reading.
“The king is dying, his heir has just been murdered, and rebellion brews in the east. But the kingdom of Kolonya and the outer Reaches has one last option before it descends into leaderless chaos.
Or rather, three unexpected options.
Zofi has spent her entire life trekking through the outer Reaches with her band of Travelers. She would do anything to protect the band, her family. But no one can ever find out how far she’s already gone.
Akeylah was raised in the Eastern Reach, surrounded by whispers of rebellion and abused by her father. Desperate to escape, she makes a decision that threatens the whole kingdom.
Ren grew up in Kolonya, serving as a lady’s maid and scheming her way out of the servants’ chambers. But one such plot could get her hung for treason if anyone ever discovers what she’s done.
When the king summons the girls, they arrive expecting arrest or even execution. Instead, they learn the truth: they are his illegitimate daughters, and one must become his new heir. But someone in Kolonya knows their secrets, and that someone will stop at nothing to keep the sisters from their destiny… to rule.
Magic, mystery, and blackmail abound in this sensational and striking fantasy debut.”
Long time no book review. I am so happy to be writing a new book review and this one will be on Furyborn by Claire Legrand. Furyborn the first book in the Empirium trilogy was released on May 22nd, 2018 by Sourcebooks Fire. It is the story of two powerful women and their story takes place one thousand years apart.
“When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.Continue reading “Review: Furyborn by Claire Legrand”→
As most of you may know the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie was released on Netflix this month. I saw the trailer before it came out and I thought it looked interesting, I had not read the book yet so I decided to read the book before watching the movie. In this blog post, I will give you all, my thoughts on both the book and the movie. Continue reading “Book vs. Movie: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han”→
I want to start off this review by thanking Tiny Fox Press for sending me Lifeline for review. This review will be spoiler free so read on with no fear.
I went into this book thinking that I wouldn’t get much out of this book mainly because I am more of a fantasy reader than a contemporary reader. But, I ended up really enjoying this book. Lifeline is the story of Eli who is a High School lacrosse team captain. One night at a party Eli ends up overdosing and is then sent to a teen rehab facility. This follows his journey to start his recovery. Continue reading “Review: Lifeline by Abbey Lee Nash”→
This is going to be a short post on the books I read in July. Since I only read three books in July and I read most of it during the Biannual Bibliothon and Booktube-A-Thon I won’t be going into detail here. If you want to know more about these books you can check out my Biannual Bibliothon Wrap-up and my Booktube-A-Thon warp-up.
On July 30- August 5th I participated in Booktubeathon which is a readathon created by Ariel Bissett. For the second year in a row, I decided to participate. This will be a little post of what I accomplished that week.
