A Game of Booksathon TBR

IMG_6100

My #AGameofBooksathon TBR is here!

This readathon (like many others) has been in my head for some time now. I’ve never watched Game of Thrones but I’ve always wanted to read the books. So I created a GoT themed readathon. There is a group book which will be A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’ll be explaining more as I go along.

If you’re interested in joining the readathon you can find more info, here. As well as the sign up page, here.

Continue reading to see my (not so structured) TBR.

The Raven’s Tale

Author: Cat Winters // Published: April 16, 2019

★★★

Seventeen-year-old Edgar Poe counts down the days until he can escape his foster family—the wealthy Allans of Richmond, Virginia. He hungers for his upcoming life as a student at the prestigious new university, almost as much as he longs to marry his beloved Elmira Royster. However, on the brink of his departure, all his plans go awry when a macabre Muse named Lenore appears to him. Muses are frightful creatures that lead Artists down a path of ruin and disgrace, and no respectable person could possibly understand or accept them. But Lenore steps out of the shadows with one request: “Let them see me!”

four Reasons to read the raven boys(1).png

As of recent, the book community has been obsessed with sprayed book edges. I am one of those people. DIY sprayed edges has also become something everyone is trying. I’ve seen so many pictures in the past week alone!

I never thought I’d try and paint my books. Like ever. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t write in her books. I can’t even break the spine! But I was tempted to try this, and surprisingly, it turned out perfectly!

I was asked to make a tutorial on how to paint book edges. So, in today’s post I’ll be showing you how to do that!

4 Reasons to Read The Raven Boys

four Reasons to read the raven boys.png

The Raven Boys was one of my most anticipated reads for this year.

I’ve put off reading it for so long because I was worried about all the hype that was surrounding it. Since I worried so much the book ended up siting on my shelf for around 4 years. I vowed to read it this year, and I finally did! The Raven Boys was an interesting read. I really enjoyed the story and characters. I was told the books after are even better than the first. I’ve already started The Dream Thieves!

So, if you need motivation to start this wonderful book, keep scrolling!

  • IMG_4574 - Copy (2) The Characters

I believe that this book is very character driven which is one of the things I love. Not that it doesn’t have a plot, but you get to know each Raven boy in their own way. Also, most importantly we have Blue our main character. I really felt attached to the characters, and fell in love with them all pretty quickly.

Blue is eccentric with her very own sense of style and not at all psychic. Gansey was by far one of my favorites, and I will protect him at all costs. Ronan grew on me the further I got in the book. He isn’t easy to love but I ended up loving him regardless. Adam on the other hand has his own issues and I spent majority of the book wanting him to be okay. Noah is the cutest. I found him very weird in the beginning but with time I loved him just as much as the rest.
