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.

O.W.L.s Magical Readathon Wrap Up (2019)

O.W.L.s readathon has come to an end!

Wow that was some ride. This was my first time taking part in the O.W.L.s readathon, and it was amazing! I read so many books this month, but only some qualified for this readathon prompts.

My career of choice was Mind Medic since that’s the equivalent of Psychiatry in the real world, and that’s what I’m majoring in. I had a structured TBR but I felt really panicked following it so I quit that, and just ended up reading whatever I felt like.

For the career of Mind Medic there are 8 required exams. Without further delay, here’s my wrap up!

DIY Painted Book Pages

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

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!

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.

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.

Considering that it had been a long time since we had gotten another movie set in the Wizarding world, Newt’s suitcase was one of my favorite aspects! I loved seeing the magical creatures inside and how big it is in there.
