Book-Tube-A-Thon 2015!!

I HAVE PARTICIPATED IN MY FIRST EVER BOOK-TUBE-A-THON AND IT WAS RADICAL! I have done a weekend-long readathon before but this was on a whole other level.

We were given a week to read as many books as possible while trying to complete set challenges. I ended up reading five books due to university commitments (yet I somehow had time to write this blog…why didn’t I read instead? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!)

Anyways, these were the books I munched on:

1. Read a book with blue on the cover

BT2015 - These Broken Stars

Title: These Broken Stars

Author: Amie Kaufman | Meagan Spooner

Rating: 8.8/10

2. Read a book by an author who shares the same first letter of your last name

BT2015 - Easy

Title: Easy

Author: Tammara Webber

Rating: 2.4/10

3. Read someone else’s favourite book

BT2015 - Yes Please

Title: Yes Please

Author: Amy Poehler

Rating: 8/10

4. Finish a book without letting it go

BT2015 - In The Skin Of A Monster

Title: In The Skin Of A Monster

Author: Kathryn Barker

Rating: 8.2/10

5. Read a book you really want to read

BT2015 - Magonia

Title: Magonia

Author: Maria Dahvana Headley

Rating: 8.6/10

So I ended up reading five books, which turned out to be about 1640 pages! I have also been doing a buddy read with my friend during the week so we have slowly been making our way through A Game Of Thrones, so that is about another 150 pages on top of that. I feel like quite the champion, even if I didn’t succeed in completing all seven challenges. Next year I will just have to take the week off work “sick” and make sure I am not studying 😀

She Who Must Not Be Named is back

I HAVE BEEN AWAY FOR FOREVER!

AND I MISS THE TALKING AND THE BOOK REVIEWING AND ALL YOU AMAZING BIBLIOPHILES!!

I thought now would be a great time to slowly start up again because I have decided that June is going to be spent rereading Harry Potter. I need it in my life. Again.

I realised that I hadn’t read the books in a long time and that I hadn’t spent time taking note of my favourite scenes and quotes. I think it is definitely time. I recently purchased a snazzy new set of books:

(Oh my Lorde, slay me! They are perfect)

…but I pulled out my original, super-loved set. They are so comforting.

Anyone feel free to join me, I think everyone needs to read Harry Potter at least once a year…once a month…a day. Why can’t I liquify the books and inject them straight into my veins? Come on Science!!
