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.

A Game of Booksathon Announcement

IMG_6100
Welcome to the A Game of Booksathon!

From the name you can probably tell that this readathon is A Game of Thrones themed. I haven’t watched the show before but I’ve been interested in reading the books for some time now. So I came up with this readathon!

The group book will be A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) by George R. R. Martin. The entire series is a tome! but I’ve made it my personal goal to at least read book 1. Of course if you want to participate in the readathon without reading the group book that’s fine. The challenges are simply themed after the series but you can definitely read whatever books you want.

March TBR (2019)

It’s March!

The months just keep flying by. February was a good reading month. I manged to read most of what was on my planed TBR this time. I never really enjoy February since it’s a pretty short month. It was a bit difficult picking books to read for March. I don’t always plan all my reads and sometimes I read books depending on my mood, but here are some that I’d like to get to this month.

Review Copies:

🌟 Descendant of the Crane (April 2nd) has been one of my highly anticipated releases and part of my YARC2019 reads.

🌟 Dreaming Darkly (April 9th) seems like a face paced and twisted story, and I can’t wait to finally get to.

🌟 The Raven’s Tale (April 16th) is for me to review on The Nerd Daily. Edgar Allan Poe wrote some of my favorite poems and I can’t explain how excited I am to see how this book turns out.

🌟 The Tiger At Midnight (April 23rd) another read for YARC2019. Also an exciting synopsis. I have so much hope for this one.

🌟 Nocturna (May 7th) I’ve heard that this one is amazing by a few bloggers who’ve read it, and I’m excited to start reading!

💌 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling ★★★★★ 📚

Another reread for #Potterheadreadalong19 done! I was sick during the first few days of February so I had this little book to keep me company. Always a great feeling to revist the world of Harry Potter.

💌 A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab ★★★★ 📚

I’ve had this book on my shelf for about 2 months now, and I can’t explain how much I regret not reading this book sooner. The world building and the characters in this book were just amazing! I knew I would love it but this is too much.

💌 The Black Coats by Colleen Oakes ★★★ 📄📖

The Black Coats was a really unique book. I can’t say It’s my favorite but I did really enjoy it.

Welcome Witches and Wizards to my 2nd post for #Potterheadreadalong19

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

📘 Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I read Strange in 2018 and it became by far one of my favorite books. So complex and imaginative and it features a librarian going on an adventure! Just the book for Ravenclaws.

📘 A Wrinkle in Time  by Madeleine L’Engle

A Wrinkle in Time was a pretty strange little book but with lots of knowledge which I think every Ravenclaw would appreciate.

📘 A Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I can assure you that Sorcery of Thorns is a Ravenclaw book. Our main character lives in a great library where they keep magical Grimoires in check. Also, the books whisper and some talk!

Image result for sincerely f.s. yousaf Related image Image result for five feet apart book

💌 Sincerely by F.S. Yousaf ★★★ 📄

I was sent a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. This collection of poetry was lovely and very simple.

💌 Pilu of the Woods by Mai K. Nguyen ★★★ 📖📄

The most adorable graphic novel that ever existed. I’ve never cried over a graphic novel but I suppose there’s always a first time for everything. A story about love and grief with the most gorgeous illustrations.

Release Date: April 16, 2019

💌 Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott ★★ 📖📄

Five Feet Apart was a really sweet story with a great educational background on what it’s like to have CF. I’m mostly excited for the movie though since I didn’t connect with the characters much.

I discovered this amazing reading challenge a few weeks ago, and I knew I had to participate. For those who don’t know about this challenge you can find out more details from the lovely hosts Shealea, CW, Lily and Vicky.

I was aiming for the Philippine tarsier but I have so many books that I want to get to that I upped my level to the Indian Cobra! Which means I’m aiming to read 11 to 20 books. (will I regret my choices? only time will tell)

Welcome Witches and Wizards to my 1st post for #Potterheadreadalong19

Today’s post is all about book recommendations for you and the fellow Slytherins in your life. I’ve compiled a list of books that fit every trait that a Slytherin is known for. Plus some green book recs too!

Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.

 

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo from 20 Books for Slytherins | Bookriot.com   Image result for vicious ve schwab  Image result for vengeful v.e. schwab

I can’t recommend this book enough for Slytherins. Are you looking for a book with cunning, cleaver and ambitious characters and plot? this here is a book you should definitely try.

Vicious is another book that should be at the top of your reading list. I read it this year and I can’t explain how happy I am that I picked it up. The anti-hero/villain plot is so complex and just such an amazingly written book. Vengeful is just as good as the first one too!
