The Struggle of being a reader

Hello there!

In this post, I am just going to let you guys know a bit of the struggle I have been having with my reading lately. I hope you enjoy.

I will start off by saying that I am currently in the middle of reading three books. Yes, three books. These books are As Old as Time by Liz Braswell, Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings, and lastly What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie. Now the struggle is different with each book. For What the Valley Knows it is taking me a while to Continue reading “The Struggle of being a reader”

Book vs. Movie: A Wrinkle in Time

Hello there!

This is going to be a quick post about my thoughts on the A Wrinkle in Time book and movie. I would do a list of all the similarities and difference but then we will be here forever. So, I will just tell you how I felt about both the book and the movie. Now, let’s get started.

First, off like any book being made into a movie, there were many changes. I feel that the changes that were made were fine. I think that the movie still delivered the message that the book originally gave in a cool way. The movie had all the main components that were Continue reading “Book vs. Movie: A Wrinkle in Time”

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”

Coming Up in February and March!

Hello there!

In today’s post I will be telling you what I have planned to read in February and March. I have decided to start doing my TBR’s every three months instead of monthly. That way it allows me to have a longer amount of time to read the books that I set out to read. Since I thought about this after I had already done my January TBR this month it will just be February and March. My next TBR will be in April for April, May and June. The next July for July, August and September. Lastly, October for October, November and December. I really hope that this schedule works out better. Now on to the books.

1. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

Review: One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

Hello there!

         I have finally finished reading One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake! That took me over a month to read and I am not sure why because I really enjoyed it. One Dark Throne is the sequel to Three Dark Crowns, so there will be spoilers on Three Dark Crowns in case you haven’t read it yet. I have a review on Three Dark Crowns if you want a spoiler-free review of the first book.

About:

One Dark Throne starts a little bit after where we left off in Three Dark Crowns. After the crazy events that went down in Three Dark Crowns we get to see how the three Queens react to those events. Katharine somehow made it out alive out of the Breccia Domain and is more determined than ever to win the crown. Arsinoe has learned that she is not a Naturalist but a poisoner, so she needs to figure out how to take advantage of this secret. Mirabella has to try to keep the people around her from getting hurt.

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”
