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.

FullSizeRender(13).jpg

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

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

This post will also help in choosing your read for Harry Potter Board Game Reading Challenge if you’re taking part in that.

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!

Key:

📖 ARCs // 📚 Paperback // 📄 Ebook

💌 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.

yarc header

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)

#Potterheadreadalong19: Books fit for a Slytherin

IMG_4759.JPG

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!

 

This post will also help in choosing your read for Harry Potter Board Game Reading Challenge if you’re taking part in that.

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!

Harry Potter Board Game Reading Challenge 2019

IMG_4584 - Copy

Every year I create my own reading challenges. Mostly because I know what genres/books I’d like to tackle, and I like to spice things up a little bit.

This year I’ve created about 3. One has similar categories to the Harry Potter one I’m about to show you. The difference is that this one is the most unique one yet.

Say hello to my Harry Potter Board Game Reading Challenge!

 

You can find below images of the challenge, plus a PDF file for you to download the entire thing!
